It's been one of those years where I wonder what the heck I'm doing. Having some positive reinforcement helps to keep me looking forward instead of quitting all together.

Lots of competition around here, hopefully I'll be able to get a better foothold in the biz next year.

Hey, nice to see the local appreciation.. Were you one of the guys driving the truck with the clam/claw picking up brush piles ???

I'm eventually going to do the rest of the landscaping around the house by the end of next summer.

Can't say that It stuck out in my mind if I ever seen it. I'm sure I have though.

I'm doing a booth out at Danvers Days this weekend. You are more than welcome to swing by if you want to. They have some decent music at night so it might be interesting.

Right now I'm getting my photos and poster-board together for the display.

Yes, I will be in the cheesy small town parade. But it's good to do things in the community I live in.

Danvers Days 2009

Here's the booth, I'm here right now, live on location.

I'm trying one pic first before I can figure to re-size on this laptop.

Yes it is. Shade all day and some large Ash trees next to me.

Here's a couple more pics, luckily I'm right next to the sidewalk, right across the street from the fire station where they have the dinners every night.

I'll be able to grab the attention of the people who just come up and eat, but not necessarily stick around for the carnival.

Good news, picked up one small job that will pay for the booth and pics.
