Ego mower, as seen from space

Google Maps recently updated the satellite photos for my neighborhood. I can tell this is from the end of last summer because of my next-door neighbor's new blue SUV in the driveway.

And there, in the backyard, is me mowing around my evergreen tree with my 20-inch Ego lawn mower.

I believe this to be the first confirmed photo of an Ego tool seen from space!

I'd be worried that you have a circle around you and an arrow pointing at you.  What have you been up to ?  ;)

If this image came from a foreign spy satellite you could be in deep doo-doo! :-)

My point exactly.  I was not as familiar with the technical terminology as you.

It’s official: “doo-doo” is now technical terminology.

:-D

Now I’m paranoid. This year I think I’ll only mow on cloudy days while wearing camouflage!

I’d sweep my yard tools for tracking devices if I was you...
