Good luck to you too KW...

We argue very little, basicly our biggest arguement is over how long to work...My idea of a perfect week is to get ahead as much as possible every day so that it will be no problem when/if it rains us out, then, if all the wheels stay rolling, we just take off early Friday...My Twins idea of the perfect week however is to take off at a reasonable time every day with plenty of sunlight left to jump on the Harley.
He slipped and fell in some sludge early this morning, while using a back pack blower, that a trash truck left on a parking lot of a resturant we take care of...He may have messed up his rotery cup pretty bad (I sure hope not) but the point is that we were able to finish up reasonably easily without him, you NEVER know when being 20 lawns ahead will benifit you.

No were not all family, we've tried to keep it that way by hireing family as helpers, but you know it never seems right that after busting butt to built a business for 20 years you look up and your humping it down a curb with the trimmer and second cousin Joey is sitting on the Turf Tiger and you know durn well how it would be if "Elfonzo" were working for you! LOL

But, yes, the business is owned by family.

Tell me about you?
