Hey...I ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer. Anyway, Ralph's Dad took this pic of grassman & me. (I'm the geeky-looking guy on the left) I tried to visit Buddy Rogers & Son earlier, but I couldn't get a 'pass' until now. It made me mad cuz I just live right behind them...note the razor wire in the background.

I was very impressed with grassman's operation as well as their facilities. Their office building is new & extremely clean. They even have an air conditioned area where they work on equipment. Nuther thing that impressed me was the quality of equipment. They never buy cheap stuff. It's all top-of-the-line. Lots of very nice mowers, trucks, trailers, spray rigs, etc. They even had a (my favorite) Z-Spray Intermediate. IMO these guys know what equipment to buy to get the job done.

We also drove around Leavenworth to see several properties he takes care of. He also showed me properties with Imprellis damage.

Thanks very much buddy. Even though it was over 100 degrees, I enjoyed every minute.
