How about some landscaping? Like a mulch section or something.

I thought of that too but there's not a whole lot of room to work with. It looks big in the pic but the doors are pretty small. Unless it was in the lower section of the door with some ornamentals coming up the front corners of the cab. That might work. I'm going to give all these ideas to my guy

maybe move the grass up a little higher? Don't know, not a specialist. It's a good start.

The past 2 days have sucked big dong. Put in 26 hours of mowing in. Most of my places weren't extremely bad, the only really bad one is this big school I have, its on 14 days because of all the rain we've had, and it was still too wet to get to about an acre of it. I foresee a big fight with the property manager, he's overly demanding to begin with and the place looks like I brush hogged it.

Hate those kind.. of course we all do. Unfortunately, we have also worked about the same hours for the last two days (with between 2 - 4 people) and am not even half way.

One of the cemeteries had calf high grass. Ugh...

Spent a few hours last night working on the truck. Just can't help myself to keep messing with it! I just need to put the front piece of angle on then I can put the wood deck on and she's a flat bed. I'm not sure when I'll get to the dovetail, if we keep getting rain days I can back the bed into the garage and finish it.

Looking good. My wife saw one in another town and wanted it.

I'm back in because of the storms. Wish all this rain would go away and give me a week to catch up.

Looking good Kurt. If it was later in the year, I would seriously entertain buying that dump insert your buddy has for sale.

Man, just cannot catch my breath. Rain this am, got out this afternoon and got a full route cut. Had over an inch of rain today again. Picked up another account next to one today. Then got more rain tonight. At this rate, I just hope it continues to rain the whole year to keep the mowing going all year and each week.

Agreed, we just need a weekly rain for the mowings to continue each week. WE have plenty of ground water so no need for the deluge we all have been seeing.
