I'm going to a concert to see Blind Melon and about 10 other bands. Only problem I see is it might rain tomorrow and the show might get cancelled. Work on Labor Day? Are you kidding me?

thankfully I'm not mowing BECAUSE tropical storm Lee is bringing us some MUCH needed rain on Monday and probably Tuesday. Lawns here were all but burnt. We needed this SO bad. Glad to take a few days off!

You said it! Though the grass does seem to recognize the winter holidays

i have to laugh, there is ALWAYS thread about who's working this holiday or that holiday.

and there's ALWAYS those that critisize those who work on the holiday.

but yes i'm working. on my way out the door after this post. i work pretty much every holiday unless it falls on a sunday and i'm not behind. i also sometimes have christmas off when it doesn't snow. but any holiday that falls on a normal work day, i am working and yes that includes thanksgiving.

I only have one regular Monday account, a large residential, so I'm going to go ahead and mow it. I emailed the customer to be sure they didn't care if I mowed. Our kids came up yesterday, so that was our "cookout" day.

I'm kinda caught up on going in to work on my equipment...on one hand I'd like shorter days this week, but on the other hand, I'd like to take today off.
