I purposely never let either of my kids touch a mower when growing up.

It worked.

Both college grads with one in grad school currently.

Not a single thing, although, in the case of his kids, he seems to think correlation does equal causation. Or, as I learned in college (after I was done mowing our lawn), post hoc ergo propter hoc.

Okay I eat my words and apologies to ye all. despite the fact that I posted earlier about all the crap that we have to put up with on this side of the pond. Anyway I am under a lot of pressure this week and I told my family I had to pick up plants on Sunday for a landscaping job today. Strangely enough the sh1t didn't hit the fan cause my 4 year old son demanded that he come along and help. Know what? It was great my Son knows loads of plant names and was in his element. All the family helped loading the truck and my son Tim directing the whole operation . There was an appreciation of how time consuming this job can be, it turned out to be a great family day out. So the answer is yes I will be bringing my son to work if he wants to. Despite all the stresses and strains this job can bring it still is a very enjoyable profession.

Thanks again and ye are right and was most definitely wrong.

Depending on temperatures

Ocean is usually my co-pilot early spring and fall when the temps are cool. His position is security and customer relations; occasionally dealing with competitors.
