It is good to hear isn't it. Makes you feel like maybe you're doing something right!! I love it when we get nice little notes in with payments - it makes it all worthwhile and cancels out the sucky days!!

Good job!!

Thats a morale booster. Everyone likes to be appreciated. Hope the rain stops but look at it this way, there are no watering restrictions.

That is great to hear Bobby! Do a good job and some customer do notice. Sounds like you have some great clients.

Makes your whole day to have someone apreciate your hard work and dedication. Usually try to throw in a couple of extra minutes of work for these clients because I have found that if they are nice enough to let me know that they appreciate my work they will probably let others know.

That's great to hear Bobby, the news last night said that many areas of the east coast haven't recorded this much rain in 100 years. Glad to see your customers know just how good you are.

Are you sure you were not dreaming Bobby!! Just kidding, good job! It is nice to hear things like that in anything you do.

Good deal......

The other day a friend of mine was at his Dr.'s, and the Dr. is telling him what a great job I do on the lawn ...... he knows the 2 of us are friends.... so my friend tells him, "yeah, I know, he mows my lawn too."

Last week, I'm tying down the mower at a site, and a car pulls alongside the trailer, and rolls down the window..... I say "Hi, how are you?"... The guy says, "Looks great!" and gives me a thumbs up, I say "thanks" and he pulls away...... Saw him again the other day, we waved to each other..... future customer?.. hope so!
