Broken sprinkler lines underground can be entertaining when you don't have to troubleshoot it. The bulge in the lawn that appears when the sprinkler goes on and disappears shortly after like watching a volcano that is going to erupt. Its a bummer when it swallows a mower though.

I'm tired off feeling like I'm running behind constantly, shuffling jobs mid day to keep someone happy. Sorry....end of rant.

Is everyone else still slammed stupid busy?

These crazy storms are killing me. Getting further and further behind. I will work in the crappiest of crap weather but refuse to work in lightning. Had to skip 10 customers this week because I just ran out of time in the week

I'm looking for a new Dump Site for brush, weeds and small trees near Livonia, Northville, Novi or Wixom. Any suggestions?

When the going gets rough.....add a Wed deadline on a big tree project, during a holiday week. I pray to God, everything goes as planned tomorrow.

We will be doing trees, in the rain tomorrow. I bid the job high, because I didn't want it, and they bit.

I said we would have it done Monday after the holiday. He countered by adding on 50% of my bid to have it done by Wed. Could you say no?

Mind you, this is at a $3m estate, in a neighborhood I'm looking to overtake, and their current service provider couldn't make it happen. I PRAY everything goes right tomorrow, and I will be paying cash for a new TT Monday morning.
