    I'm needing to raise $2,799.00 for a new riding mower. The reason why is because i take care of several senior citizens properties year round. I also do other odd and end jobs for them like taking them to the doctor or store when they need me. I have 20 acres (over half of all that is all grass) all together that i tend to and i do all this work for free, because they are poor and living on an extremely tight budget like i do and i couldn't dare take a dime from them. They have family, but they aren't worth a damn imho. One couple has a rental property, but their grandson has been occupying it for the last 12 years rent free and he won't lift a hand to help. But the couple wont throw him out because he is their oldest grandson. The elders can't help because they are in their high 70s and 90s

    I have to do everything by myself, and it's a lot of work and ware and tare on my equipment and myself lol. I have to weed eat, plow the gardens, cut up fallen trees, pickup and hall off limbs and pine cones, rake, trim limbs, plant, mow and everything else in between, than i have to take care of my stuff, and i do this all with very bad knees. I'm 32 and i get up off the couch are chair like an old man, and some days the pain is so bad. I work my ass off and i don't get paid a dime lol

    Well, i had 5 running riding mowers, 1 craftsman and 4 old snapper riding mowers. Well over the years they all started breaking down, i would get them fixed but since they had thousands of hours on them they wouldn't last long. Now i'm down to one old snapper that i will be amazed if it will last halfway through the summer. I used it 2 days ago and it would barely pull me up the hill in 5th gear.

    Anyone have any methods or know of any other way that i can possibly raise the $2,799.00 pretty quick for the brand new mower i need?

    Your writing is excellent. Make an account on Helium and Textbroker, you should have no problem making $120/day after you've established your reputation in a week or two.

    Beat up the old folks' grown-up children and demand $1000 every month from them towards care for their parents.

    P.S.; Take their signatures on blank stamp papers. Of course add taxes and tips ($2000 pm) etc so that any additional expenses are taken care of by those children. Also break their knee joints (one or two, whatever you feel breaking like at that time), so that they don't run away.

    I think my writing is everything but excellent.. lol

    Hell, their daughter goes on a cruise every 2 months, but doesn't even bother driving 15 Miles to make sure her parents are okay. I have to give her mother a shot every afternoon.

    Sometimes i feel like braking the grandson legs. Up until recently the grandson was taking his laundry down there and having his granny wash them for him.. He doesn't work, he lives in a house rent free and he sits up there and does drugs, and has his grandparents has to buy his groceries and pay his utility bills and everything else. The sad part, all the property including both house and land will go to him when they die. This property has been in the family since the 1800s and it's worth quite a lot of money.

    This property is now surrounded by 1mil and up homes and they are wanting it, but the old man refuses to sale it. This property has 3 natural springs, 2 wells, creek, a pond, 6 peach trees, 8 apple trees, 4 pecan trees, 2 walnut trees, 13 fig tees, to many to count blackberries and scuppernong grapes, 2 beautiful weeping willow trees and 2 pear trees. All of that will be gone and once they die, because the grandson already said he was selling the property to those developers.
