Guilty as charged...

Also, if you can identify what LCO is mowing almost half a mile away by the sound of the mowers they are running and what day of the week it is.

You spend the whole weekend getting dirt and gunk out of your nose, and after you finally finish picking late on sunday night, you start the process all over again

Watch the golf tournament and note the condition of the tuft. Seem to comment on the quality (or lack there of) of the turf.

Always noting landscapes and condition of grounds as you drive along your merry way.

...if you spend at least half your Vegas vacation looking at the turf trying to tell the difference between the fake stuff and the real stuff and criticizing the landscaping of multimillion dollar casinos.

You almost drive off the road or rear end the person in front of you because yours distracted by watching the other lawn guy mowing or how his work looks.

Everytime you hear a mower or trimmer you turn you head.

To lazy to sweep the deck so you fire up the backpack, also use it to dry the truck after washing it.

Give you younger brother rides on the mower or in the wheelbarrow around the yard.

Save all your Turf magazines.

Put Armor All on you mower's gas tank so it looks new and shiny.

Man, I was hoping this post would come back up!!!
I'm sitting in a hotel right now, 10 PM, 4 hours from home. I put my wife and daughter to bed (actually, I drove around looking at some of the housing developments here to see how the lawns look, to get my daughter to sleep, then took her up to the room for sleep), snuck downstairs to the computers, and here I am....
I think I'm a lawnsite junkie!!

How about when your on lawnsite and your wife gives you an invitation to "come upstairs" and half an hour later you remember to go see what she wanted and she is already asleep.
