    Just curious what everyone will be doing regarding their scheduling for Monday the 4th of July? Are you working that day, or moving them?

    I may bump them back to the Saturday before and take the long weekend, this way not interrupting their holiday or mine.

    Your thoughts?

    Monday is when I have all of my commercial accounts scheduled so I might just be able to keep it the same, If some of my 5 day rotations fall on the 4th I think I will actually do them on sunday possible, but for sure not on the fourth.

    I will not work on July 4th. That day is for family and to honor the USA.....work will get done the Friday before.

    Working. We get 20 weeks of vacation that we don't want every year, so we work all the holidays that fall on a weekday (all three of them) during the mowing season.

    Taking off and will push everything back one day. Hoping to take a four day weekend and be done by Thursday the week before the 4th.

    I'll be camped out at the motorcycle dirt drags on the creek Fourth of July weekend. Too drunk to fish, let alone run a mower.
    All of my lawns will be looking good for the holiday weekend before I head up to the creek.

    Ya, right. Come on down and drink beer with me at Boozy Creek. We need more judges for the ladies competition.
