Back in the day we were running 7-9 full landscape crews (heavily equipped), 16 or so lawn crews, a couple irrigation crews and carpenters for decks and gazebos. Full nursery and tree farms too! We worked all around the state. I was proud to be part of that outfit. It was a great team.

It's been a while. I often wonder how he's doing. He always was a winner and a mentor in my book.

Things are going okay for me. I just picked up 4 new accounts this week. All are pretty close so thats good. I went to one estimate yesterday. I told the lady that I cut 4 times monthly. She looked at me confused and said 4 times a month seems like alot to me, does it really need 4 times a month. So I explainedto her yes and so on. Needless to say it looked like her lawn hadn't been cut since dec. or jan. I just walked away and laughed to myself.
