Well this may state inspection resulted in rear disc brakes and new rotors $325, front hub bearing about another $400. Fuel filler neck replaced for a CEI repair, replace all the brake lines, very badly rusted, ABS wheel sensor. Another $1,375.

$2,100. Not trying to top you but point out that when I say I feel your pain I am. And the tires just passed inspection. They need to be replaced before the winter.

All I can afford to do is to replace the front tires with the rear tires and replace the rears with the tires that were on the front.

I do.
We had one big snow (big for us) this past year. And our state got made fun of all over the media because of what a mess it was! The two years before that we didn't get to see a single flake of snow. So that's off the table here.

Of course we get a bit of a longer mowing season, but winter still sucks! lol

Good idea! I've never done Christmas cards...think I will this year. But what about your customers who don't celebrate Christmas?

All of my customers get the same Christmas cards. 75% of my customers either call me when they receive the card, send me a card or mention how much they loved the card when I see them in the spring. A little effort goes a long ways to keep and retain customers. Edit...purchase them now while you have the money.
