You can always marry a Cali girl. I lived with 3 SDSU girls when I was stationed there. A great time in my life.

Back to damn hotness and tons of shizz in everybodys yard. I drove the pickup with brushbox back and forth to the dump all day. With all the weather and extra jobs we are not behind. Picked up 3 more duallys (lawn and pool) this week.

Yea, hot today, but not humid. No joke, till 12 today it was a cool breeze. It felt like late October. Nice on the duallys. How much do you typically get per month for pool service? Did you do pools back in your San Diego days?

The pool thing started here. A buddy of mine had a pool only service. He left for Kentucky and gave me the business, so I just merged the two. I maintained the large aquatic facilities at the USCG base at SD and Miami when I was there. So I had the base knowledge. I have been looking at couple commercial routes for sale around here. Chemical costs are what can kill you. I buy chlorine pucks and bars a ton at a time. I generally get 85 a month if they have an autovac.

Great week! Stayed on schedule even with the holiday. We had it kinda cool compared to the rest of the country. The usual mid summer rush is on. What is with all the Pinellas guys doing weekly service for 10 bucks a cut? I'm going to enjoy this morning on the deck with some grilled garbage omelet. Two more weeks to closing on our new (to me) house.

10 bucks a cut? Sounds like another scrub that will be out of business before September. No way can you make any profit unless it is a very small property, like 20 min done, I have heard of some doing the under cut in this area, but I think their equipment may have fallen out of their Honda Civic trunk.
I had a hard week, but it all got done. Didn't cut on the 4th, had to watch my 2yr old, but was out the next day and caught up. Picked up another account this weekend too. I even had equipment issues, still managed somehow. Hope all had a nice holiday, got some rest today, so the freight train will be charged up for the week. Dodging the rain ofcourse....
Peace bruthas! WOO HOO! Gonna finish my beer with an epsom salt bath and turn on some Johnny Cash....
