Just blew everything down to the street and chopped up the straglers. On Sunday not one leave was down off the trees. Now for tommorrow I have plenty of leaf work to do and I knew that Sunday as I was out looking over properties. Needless to say the bagger is on the rider tonight, the rakes are warming up to be used and it should be a fun day. lol

I'm putting the leaf box and loader on tomorrow.

So today's fun. There's a renter at a bunch of duplexes I do, a few weeks back he came out and started mfing a guy I had helping, complaining that we won't clean up after him. Dude has a 100' hose and leaves it everywhere each week, and stuff from his patio laying everywhere. So the guy picks the hose up, throws it in the yard and starts screaming "pick my mfing hose up b****". funny part is, guy is like 120lbs and looks like kid rock, and my buddy that was helping is a fairly built guy. So now every week he has this damn hose spread everywhere all the way to his front yard. Today I was cranky so I coil his hose up on his patio...and then turn the mower and chopped it up! Lmao. Talk about stress relief. It's worth the 30 bucks for a new hose. And best of all, the property company said they're giving him a notice to start keeping his stuff on his patio lol.

The wind down here really blows. No pun inteneded. Still need to put the box on the truck. Put two tarp loads in the truck today to run to the dump. Not enough time in the day to get anything done besides cutting and that is it. Thanfully I have not reallly needed the loader yet. But later this week I sure as hell will.

At this rate, if we get the rain they are calling for this week will be a complete dud for work outside. Maybe I can get the box on when it is raining. I sure as heck won't be doing leaves in the rain.

Is anyone going to the expo in Louisville this week? I'm going down for Friday. I have two hours to kill after the show ends so was wondering if anyone would want to meet up somewhere to eat and bull ****.
