Anyway, I have been out of town for the past couple of days. My wife and I had to get away from the kids. We went to Lake Tahoe; Here are some pics:

nice trip and nice work man. i may sound like everyone else but, you should look into a used 32" (seems like the perfect size) on craigslist, and then keep a 21" on the trailer for the properties with those stairs that came up earlier. Good Luck though!(:

Thank you for the compliment. Yes I have been keeping my eye open for a good 32 or 36. I just haven't found one that I can afford. If I find one in my budget I'll snatch it up for sure. It'll make quick work of the jobs I have.

Honestly I haven't had much of anything come through from craigslist as far as I know. I ask pretty much everybody who calls where they found me, and nobody has mentioned craigslist. I update my postings regularly too.

Ok so here are some pictures of my "lawn" I installed about 10 days ago. First, let me give you a little background on it; DONT COMMENT UNTIL YOU'VE READ THIS FIRST, ALSO, THE GRASS LOOKS WAY BETTER IN PERSON.. FOR SOME REASON IT LOOKS LUMPY IN THE PICTURES, BUT ITS VERY FLAT AND FULL LOOKING:

My daughter is 3 years old. She LOVES grass. As most of you know, we live in the mountains, and happen to live on a lot that is very hilly, and dont have a lot of flat areas. Whenever we go on walks, or go visit family in the flat lands, my daughter has a blast playing in the grass.

I had this over grown ugly rosemary bush that I removed a few weeks back. One day while my daughter was taking her afternoon nap, I thought maybe it'd be nice to surprise her with grass when she woke up. So I quickly went outside to a small, relatively level area, and leveled it some more, filled in some low spots with some potting soil I had lying around, and went down to Lowes and bought a few rolls of sod. When she woke up and saw the grass, she was pretty excited. Yesterday I built a little border out of some 2x3's I had lying around and steaked them in with a few 1x2's. Then I used some wood stain I had lying around and stained the wood real quick.. Not perfect, but hey, it was for my 3 year old daughter and she is happy!

Not that anybody cares.. But yesterday I took a bunch of stuff out of my garage and took all the equipment off the wall and started from scratch with how I organize my equip. I built a couple trimmer racks, and have the blowers and hedge trimmer hanging below them. Then I built a couple of small shelves out of fence boards (new ones) for paint and lubes and stuff. I think it looks pretty good.

Are you licensed for applications? I remember you saying that you dont really have grass except for what you just planted, so why the spreader? Good quick racks haha
