I only have 352 accounts left to blow out...

The way both trucks have been going its looking like this will happen in about 3 week done tops...Which is good.......

me/partner have banged out 158 already.we average 17 a day with a 40 cfm compressor....Which is actually pretty good....Average 1500$ in work a day or so...Soon there after I will get the dole.......

I am already sick of them.....
ARGGGGH!

I would rather dig ditches in the hot sun with no water than do do 352
more....

::Puts self out of misery::

Not me..Don't get me wrong they are easy/simple/good money maker.

But I'm sick of the

"Hi Mrs. XYZ,can I please turn the water off?" Times about 350.....

This one lady Every year goes to me

" can you please move the lawn furniture into my cellar 300 yards away"

I did it for two years..She never gave up buffalo.

She said the same thing to me this year, I respond
"I'm sorry we have a tight schedule to keep"

HA!it felt good.and we did have keep track of time today.

We're all pretty fried after a season (I worked this year & winterize is yet to
go) but irrigation is a service industry & Mrs.XYZ makes you a living, so take
the crap & move on; it will soon be over.

They were spectacular a week or so ago; too much leave drop since then. However, I look out over to the west and a lot of peaks are already getting a good snowcap on them. This just might be the year I master moguls....

Installs in the 80's!! What a dream. I'd still be doing them. Try installs in the 100s. If installs in the 80's is tough you would die in Texas.
