GATEWAY
Hello, good to hear, same here we have double our mowing and landscaping has me staying up late doing bids after a long day of work.
I thought the economy would get us this year, but no sign yet.
KNOCK ON WOOD

P.S.
DONT MENTION THE "D" WORD.

I got a hand full of calls in early march and nothing for a few weeks now. I landed a big bid early this year so I'm not too worried, it put me above where I wanted to be for the year.

Years starting out crappy equipment wise. Trucks trans started acting up the other day, got all kinds of codes coming up and it starts in 3rd gear when put in drive. I did some reading and they're saying somethings messed up in the harness to the trans. So I get to spend tomorrow pulling the harness out and inspecting it. yay.

On a good note I got the money lined up for my shop, so the drive will probably be put in next month and it'll start going up shortly after.

Kurt had some standing water in a couple of yards this week.

First full week of mowing is in the books and I am glad it is over. Crazy week with the rain and it looks like a wet week coming up next week too. only about 31 more weeks to go before we start plowing again.
