Oh well hopefully after tonight everything dries up pretty good. We had enough rain in the past two weeks for about 4 months.

Yep that's the best time to do that. Your already dress for the occasion so why not!!! Do waste a good day to advertise since you have a chance to.

With this wind blowing like it is tonight it might be dry enough for Wednesday but we will just do flowerbeds till probably Friday just to not push it and mess up yards while turning. No since in pushing it since the grass isn't growing much. Customers don't appreciate ruts or turn marks when all you had to do was wait a little longer.

Yes it really is. Ever since I did the EDDM, I have 12 new accounts and only 2 I didn't get. I also picked 1 up today so that makes 13. But I know the closer grass season get here, the more customers I'll get. My goal is to get about 20 plus customers. I also just signed off on the other large commercial account today. The only thing is getting some dependable and reliable helpers. I have one but I don't feel good about him as of yet. But through God, everything is possible. Just like he has my business where it's at now. He'll supply me with all my needs. Always pray before you start the day out and ask God for your needs.

I'm glad your business doing good too. I use you and a lot of other friends on here as motivation to get out and do more each day. Like I said, if you ever need some extra hands one day and I'm available just let me know. I'll do the same. As long as grass grow and stay green, we all still have a job.
