aint life grand?

Earlier this week, I had a customer discontinue service because her husband just got back home from being deployed. Right after I finished the last mowing, I was loading up my stuff and this guy came up to me and said him and his brother are going away for about a year and they need someone to take care of their lawns. They live right beside each other. Right then, I recovered from my loss 2 fold! Pretty cool, and I love that neighborhood, because it works really nice in my route, so I didn't have to change my route up.

Anyone ever had anything like this happen?
My set up:
-2007 Chevy 2500hd 8.1l 4x4
-7x18 enclosed trailer
-Grasshopper front mount 61", gravely 52"
-36" Gravely Walkbehind, 21" exmark push mower
-Stihl everything
