Have you worked for Tom in the past as well?
Nope, never worked for anyone else but my self.

Clay was brutal for me too. Wall base trench was dug by hand with a pick. Hopefully we can have a clear weekend, looks bad though.

We installed a new lawn the first of the week and everything is really dry. Gonna take awhile for the grass to come up. We're raising the cutting height already, okay not we, my wife is raising the height. We don't want rain this weekend but we do need it bad. Might have another quick lawn install to do and not much time to do it so rain at night wouldn't be too bad. A commercial customer called us yesterday and is having an Open House for their new building on June 21st and they want grass for it. No, they don't want to pay for sod. Would have been nice to have more time.

Any of you guy's going to the L.O golf tournement? It's the first year that I book holidays in the summer and it ends up being the week of the golf day. The course that its at this year is one of the nicest I've been on in a while.

Not a golfer so no go for us.
We did the two lawn installs and last night got 4" of rain. The grass was just starting to come up, going back tomorrow morning and reseeding them both. We needed the rain just not that much. I was pumping water out of a basement for 9 hours today and have to go back tomorrow and likely pump another 5 hours. Darn rain.

This might be wrong place to post this, but I'm looking for a 72" finishing mower for a skid steer made by bobcat. I would rather buy used. Does anyone have one they want to get rid of or know anyone that has one they want to get rid of? If you do send me a PM and we can do business

hay guys, how have you all been? wicked busy i bet, same as me, going crazy!!!
anyways I thought I would post this, I got a truck for sale, wicked nice truck actually, The only reason im sellin it is because it cant tow what I need it to, can put 4-5000 lbs in the box and fly around town no problem whats o over, but for somereason, when ford designed this truck, its just wasnt meant to tow heavy weight, pullin a landscape trailer with a few Z's would be no problem but 15K dump trailer is a whole nother story. Price is $7500 with plow now, if anyones interested give me a shout asap.

thanks alot

Wish I had the time.
Take the digital camera along and take pics of the new surprise that snowway has for us. Apparently there has been a ton of hype about it.

Enjoy the wings and beer, have a few for me
