Thanks for the props bud!

We did 3 paver walkways already, nothing spectacular, but work. 225 sq., 110 sq. and 200 sq. for the 3. I'll get pictures up when i go back to the job, whenever that may be.
Plus we had to go back and touch up a few of our jobs from the winter last year, fix the lawn and whatnot, stuff we couldnt do because of the temps around christmas.

Now I just need to find a little time to go buy my trailers and We'll be set.

Good luck this year guys

Thought you guys would get a kick out of this like myself. I had a lady call with a private # and start bitching at me for my postcard/plastic bag with a rubber band holding it to the door. She said she was on vacation and stopped her mail and newspapers from coming to her house. When she got home from vacatin she found my postacard on her door and said that shows robbers that no one is home and had her home been broken into she would have called her attorney. I kindly asked for her address to make sure she does not get on next yer and she hung up on me. I guess next year she will be getting one too

LMAO!!

I think the fact of no activity at the house would show no1 is home. Not just the fact of the door hanger. So silly.
