Traveling through BC I have seen communities proudly display a large (okay, make that HUGE) hockey stick, mining truck, tree crusher and cross-country skis. But, have you ever seen the world's largest lawnmower? I didn't think so.
Well, if you are in the neighbourhood, stop by the Deep Creek Tool Museum in Enderby and meet Herb and Linda - the proud owners and collectors of hundreds of neat, old tools and gadgets. The garage, spare room and yard are jammed with stuff and Herb can tell you whatever you wish to know about all the items - including the ones you can't even begin to guess what they might have been used for! In our fast-paced world of hand-held mobile devices, it was a pleasure to slow down for awhile and look back in time.
