Dabbled with a tree removal. This thing was a mess. The top had been snapped over a few years ago or so and nothing but small branches grew straight up.

Yeah 24", I like them so far. Once it broke in a lil bit it runs really good. Unfortunately most of the trimming jobs this year have been brutal. I definitely need to get a extended attachment for my echo pas

Got a few shirts made so no one had to wonder who the long hair guys are working in their neighbors yards. First time getting shirts made.

Truck repair today, new starter. Went pretty good for me as normally I have horrible things go wrong or am missing tools etc. New Starter sounded strong. Heat shield didnt look so hot.



Got new plugs,wires,cap and rotor to do also. Original plugs etc, hope they come out ok.

Got all but one plug out , didnt really want to break it or something stupid. I think I will just have the mechanic get it out when I have the brake lines replaced. It sure ran better with the new plugs and wires. Its funny how you dont notice things that slowly diminish.

Picked up a new blower on craigslist today . BR550 a lil rough.

Paid 150 for it, put a new fuel line on it fired on the first pull. Still have got to figure out how the wires in the handle work to turn it off also need a plug boot and primer bulb. I dont think I did so bad? I mean if it works for one day I could get a new one...lol



Also made it to Chicago the other day.....Is it strange that I wanted in the stadium to watch the grounds crew ?






Going to slice seed a lawn tomorrow and sign on a much needed job in the AM. New driveway and flagstone to start.

Start this project this week hopefully, New driveway going in and closing off the old and a small flag stone walkway. I hope to bang this out before the leaves get me bogged down.








Will also be doing a deck and hopefully alot more work at this property. I love clearing work and bringing old property's back.
