Didn't even try it today...got up around 7, got things ready to go, ate breakfast...went outside to hook up and it started to rain...went inside and got distracted for a while puttin around my new house...now its definitely raining buckets here..better luck tomorrow.It seems like keeping a schedule this time of year is impossible...And a lot of lawns out this way dont seem to be growing fast,some are though..weird. Looks like saturday/sunday cuts for me...I recall cutting on fathers day last year. I guess I can paint my walls today after all..She'll be happy to see me doing something productive instead of watching speedvision.lol

got two lawns and a clean-up/thatch done this morning, and the rain came right on time @ 12:00. Oh well, hopefully Friday and Saturday will hold out for us!

Also, thank you Lawn Pro and Metro for the Stickers and inspection forms.. A big help indeed!

I did the vehicle/trailer inspection myself( I was a mechanic in a former life ) Do I have to send one of the copies to anyone or do i keep both parts of that form?

And, I have a single axle trailer...do i need to put brakes on it?

If it wasn't gonna rain tomorrow, I'd start doing all my lawns, I've mowed my lawn 2 times this week already, have to start tomorrow, can't today, I'm "studying" for my exam right now for psychology. (Watching tv, on lawnsite, on trukz, I still have to get my psychology books from upstairs yet). Loving the rain though, grass is very green!

Well was out in Northville/Novi today and got 16 of the 25 done before the rain started around 12:30 and then did 3 while it was sprinkling then called it quits. Not too bad to only be 6 behind!!! Hopefully i can get a 600sq. ft. paver job done this weekend and i'll be all set.

Hey Mike, i may have another aeration for you at 6 & Beck? I'll call you later after i talk to her.

I was told about a week ago from my local county weight master that any single axle commercial tariler that weighed more then 700 lbs had to have brakes. BUT I can't find that on any website so I have no idea. I would think he would know what he was talking about though.

Hmmm, i cant seem to find anything either. It seems that they keep things vague so they can give you a ticket for them later on... Quite a clever way to collect revenue if you ask me.
