Well not many people grow old and wish they had worked more.

Turn off the darn cell phone, life does go on. Enjoy your vacation and check messages once and I mean once a day.

If you return and find the guys did not perform, take your time and replace them with guys you can rely on. Start planning now on working for the business not in the business if you want to grow.

I have a 4.5 year old and a 1.5 year old. Spent yesterday at marine land with them. Sent the oldest to camp grandma this morning and spent the day with the crew building a monster playhouse that we maybe 1/2 finished. It's going to be an awesome surprise when she returns.

Enjoy your family while you can.

You haven't lived until you've been to Southeast Asia.

Couple of observations I made at the beach, we were at North Myrtle.

1. NPRs are king, and I can see why with all the mess of traffic and cramped spaces.
2. More exmarks than anything, and a LOT more walk behinds than ZTRs, which there are a lot of chopped up areas, but even on the larger areas, walk behinds.
3. People in my area do anything they can do get rid of pine needles and they are priceless at the beach.
4. You can't drive a mile without seeing a LCO, or at least someone with a couple of mowers.
5. Image is the least thing LCOs worry about. Ya, it was hot there, upper 80's, low 90's, but still... I would say probably 60% of who I saw cutting, individuals and crews, wore shorts w/no shirts, or jeans w/no shirts. I guess property owners at the beach call it "beach life".
6. Clumps don't matter... Numerous lots over 1/2 acre with windrows and clumps left laying everywhere.
