Wow, you must be doing quite well for yourself...mac and cheese and all. I'm sticking to ramen...maybe, cracking out the cup o' soup, but that would only be to celebrate the anniversary.

This happens to be our big Ann Arbor/Saline day. Looks like a heavier rain is developing there now. Maybe we'll get some afternoon cutting in.

Yea, we're living it large. Ramen is probably for dinner or something. We get mac and cheese for $0.40/box... not too shabby.

Thats pretty much all I did as well, Had to get a new tire for one of the trailers, a new shaft for a stick edger and adjust the carb on my dixie. And it just started pouring again

We lucked out. Got started around 1:30 and just finished without more than a few small drops at a time. That cold front just came through though and I think we may see some stronger t-storms tonight.

Im getting out of trees. Tree guys have a rap of not answering their phones, and it is when we are busy.

If you still need them done let me know, im in waterford, but will do takedowns cheap, you clean it up.
