While out mowing today I was trying to get to my next stop and came up on a road block...There was a big parade today going through and I had to sit there and wait for ever. When it finally got to the end there were two cop cars trailing the parade and when they went by, I just turned in behind them...

It turns out every one thought we were part of the show hehehehe.....Did not plan on it, just came to my mind while trailing the police cars.....

Thousands of people saw my truck and rig with my name all over it LOL....

We herd one guy even say "Now that's a set up"

Pretty cool, huh?

I might look into really getting in it next year. every one throws out candy from the cars so I was thinking of maybe putting candy in small bags with business cars, pens, or something like that. Maybe staple the bag shut so it all don't fall out when you toss them.....hey maybe even offer a discount off of a service...Who knows where this could lead....:usflag:

Nope, they were pretty cool. I did turn on my head lights and flashers for safety because there were so many little kids out there dipping into the street to pick up the goodies.

not sure what you get there but to me it doesn't seem too bad
seems like more often than not it's just enough to make the roads slippery
from time to time we get some decent snow though

***UPDATE***

Well, that turned into a $765 mulch job, just found out today. We are putting it in this Sat. Also her sister was there when I was there to do the estimate and wants me to give her an estimate for mowing for next season.:cool2:

Better yet get the parade to follow you to each lawn and do sing and dance as you cut with police escort. Sell icecream and candy as you go. Force every neighbor out to admire your work :D

It's good to see things like this though. Talk ab right place, right time. My truck would be awesome for a parade but I'd need a 16ft trailer with freshly waxed equipment too. Try to get in it and let this open your mind to other marketing ventures. All it takes is a spark JD.
