|Description:||After having added fertilizer to his manual push dispenser (see PHIL 14205), this man was pictured dispensing fertilizer granules across his front lawn, which he’d just mowed on this bright sunny day (see PHIL 14203 and 14204). He wore protective sunglasses, darkly-colored clothing, and sunscreen, which had been applied to his sun-exposed skin. Pushing a lawnmower, or dispenser, is a good form of exercise, which allows one to accomplish two goals simultaneously: completing an exercise session, and maintaining one's lawn.|
