No ruts here. I just didn't use the big mower - well, I couldn't even if I wanted to. The engine block cracked yesterday.

[QUOTE=GBSAUTO;4122697]It all depends on what you pay... I was driving 100 miles a day for crap money(worked for parents).. i havent worked in 2 weeks and bills are now coming due.. Had 2 interviews in 2 weeks.. 1 with a lawn company, didnt think 10+ yrs experience was enough.. The other with royal edger.. they hired someone the day before my "test day".. Said they forgot to call me..
PM me if you have ?'s about my ability..(if you can)[/

Go to the Florida forum and check out the "whats a FL CPO license worth?". The guy is in PR and looking to train a spray tech. Golden opportunity to get a paycheck and your CPO license.

First Sunday morning I can relax in a long time. All the yards caught up. Coffee and griddle time. Can't wait for fall.
