Today while mowing, one of my customers came out with a nice box of cigars and handed them to me and said thanks for the great work. The cigars are A. Fuente, Robustos in a cedar wrap. Talk about my lucky day. Some customers are just great!!!!

Congratualations! Would you have predicted that this would happen, if asked six months ago?

One of our customers gave us an Echo PB210E blower a couple of weeks ago.

I would have fell over. I quit cigars in '87 and it hasn't been easy.

I frequently take my lovely spouse to one of our finer eateries for dinner. they happen to have a "scotch and cigar" parlor. I always like to sit near the door of that room!

Wow! What a thoughtful gift. Your customer gave you the
a gift that will take 10 minutes off your life and create
a hazard to your health. Years from now when your laying
in the hospital bed with tubes shoved down your throat and your family standing over you in disbelief you can think back to that fine box of cigars and thank yourself for
doing such a fine job and sucking the life out of yourself.

OK, im just spitting cuz my grandpa died from lung cancer.

Let me take a deep ( clean ) breath...................................................................... OK, im done now... I will go back to my job at LawnSite.com and mind my own business now.

Please don't get offended, its nothing personal. I promise.

Yes, I was de-LIGHT-ed to get the cigars. As for the customer giving me a comp six months ago, I guess he would have given me the cigars or some other comp. The customer is one that once in a while, will send an extra $20-30 over what you bill him. He is a young prepy type with an SUV and a Volvo 950 something or the other.

Chuck you're right on target but I do like a cigar now and then with strong coffee. I'm a victim of big tobacco, especially Cuban.
