Hmmm. What did i do in a previous life? I think I helped build the pyramids. It was a hard life. But the lawn service business was kinda slow in that area. So I had to do something on the side. I would cut on of the shieks back yards then the sand would shift and cover the front yard before I could get to it. He tried to stiff me for half the payments. So I took one of his concumbines in trade...........

I've been in the lawn care biz full time for three years now. Before that I was a corporate engineer-- working for the man. I was involved with everything from new manufacturing floor layouts, to time studies, justifying new capital equipment, rebuilding old machine tools and identifying best vendors, etc. It was alot of fun, but the lawn care stuff was always on my mind. So I took a chance and am happier now than ever before.

U.S.Army mechanic.Ran heavy dirt equiptment for six months. (fun). Got in trouble for working to hard. Dirt forman said I was working the other brothers out of a job. Brown-noseing the big boss was more important than how you worked. So I started cutting grass.We did'nt even have a blower. Used bromes. That was twenty years ago. Time for another change.My next truck will be a Freightliner. <p>----------<br>Yesteryear L/S<br>Hollywood Fla
