Yeah brutha, it took five years to finally get enough business to take the next step. but i managed to do it. Between thugs stealing my equipment, equipment and truck breaking down, customers not paying.... a hard road to take, but I figured one day it would work out. I have learned alot from this business. I just kept pressing on, doing the best I could do.....and I get er done! WOO HOO! Thanks for the replies, means alot that someone is out there that knew me when I first started. Peace my bruthas!

Thank God for this rain. My neighborhood is noticeably greener. Hopefully this kicks off the spring growth flush.

Had a descent week, got a few compliments on some of my lawn accounts that I do down on 22nd Ave SE-brought in another account. Not a bad week, still fighting this dang cold...but better than last week. Long day today, barely beat the rain. Time for a brew and pizza....WOO HOO! Freight train needs a lil rest! Peace my bruthas!

Man this week flew by. Spent today putting a power steering pump on my shop/backup truck and trimming all my Hollys. Now its time for steaks and asparagus on the grill, strawberrys with homemade whipped cream and Heineken for the muscles.
