I went out advertising a couple days ago and got yet again another job. Why do you think they would wait till now to want their lawn done? Beats me. All I know is this new job I got is huge. It's about 3/4 acres and has somewhat of a slope. I know what you're thinkin', "this kid doesn't know a big job it it bit him in the butt." Seems like a big job to me with a 21" and about 5" tall grass. Of course it won't be that long next time. Anyway, my point is, have any of you guys had this problem where you get business later in the year? Seems to me that I'm having a business boom right now in my little town. I could be gettting more. I'm going to call a couple of the others guys out there and ask if they had any jobs I could have. It's pretty hot here so most guys might be down-scaling while I'm shootin' to the top!

Yeah Ocutter, I am. I didn't realize how big it was untill I got out there. The owners all &quot;oh yeah, its alot of grass.&quot; I didn't think it was that big but I didn't have much of a choice, my rider is being worked on.
