So......will you be taking off for Memorial Day or working? I have lots of work to do so we'll be working. Maybe stop early or something.

dont think ive had a day off this spring but hey this is the main season

I work 90 hr weeks but thats including running around with customers, doing estimates, drawing designs etc.

We do not do production on the weekends. If something really needs doing I'll throw some money out and have it get taken care of or do it myeslf if I've got time. Overall Saturdays and Sundays the trucks are parked.

Memorial Day is the 28th, not 14th.

Well I guess I'll pull my head out now. Perhaps I will look at the calander a bit more frequently. Too much work-not enough play.

05-13-2007, 12:52 PM
I'll be fishing!!

05-13-2007, 01:07 PM
Going camping, do it every year.

If I showed up at my clients on memorial day I'd be fired! Take some time off and relax and enjoy the family.

05-13-2007, 10:01 PM
definitly will not be workin, being a former sailor i plan to watch the parade and sit next to the grill all day....and enjoy the holiday in honor of my fallen brothers.

05-13-2007, 10:22 PM
don't know what I will be doing, but it won't be working.

05-13-2007, 10:48 PM
No work here!! We always have about 30-40 people over for a big cook-out, swimming in the pool, and lots of alcohol consumption.

05-13-2007, 11:04 PM
I'll be on the lake drinking some brew ha.

05-14-2007, 01:32 AM
I dont plan on working but with how fast the grass is growing right now its gonna be hard to have everyones lawns short cookouts.

05-14-2007, 01:34 AM
Nay, I have rules...
My customers follow the rules, so I have to, also.

NO work on Sundays or greater Holidays, such as:
Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Xmas, New Years.
There's a few others, maybe Easter, but I do work Halloween.

This is one aspect of the Yin-yang equation that works to my specifications :laugh:

I'll be working, sort of, but not with mowers. I am a volunteer EMT so I'll be sitting around waiting for someone to need me. Have fun.

We'll get the homestead back in shape and pay honor to those that gave their lives for our freedom!!
