Story of raymow on St. Pete times today. Proof that any hack can make it in this business. Just mortgage your soul and ethics.

Yep, shoveled up SIX full cans of acorns yesterday. That was only 2 trees! Couldn't do anything else in the yard. Looks like Santa shizzed on everything. Lights and cords running everywhere. Owner did come out with a card with a 50 in it for us though and early payment for the month.

i sure agree with the acorns. one of my clients backyard, i had to rake them up, as well as the leaves. last year i just blew the leaves. is mother nature trying to tell us something? gonna be a cold winter so the acorns are dropping to feed the squirrels and critters. and ya, a hard freeze watch for us monday night into tuesday , wind chill advisory for the morning....wtf? am i in southwest florida or what?

its nice not being busy after a busy summer, but its getting old already, for me at least.

Yea every year I anticipate the slow down and when it gets here I get bored real quick LOL. I have tried real hard to sell landscape , paver and irrigation for this winter and have had some luck, so that should keep me out of trouble for a while
