    I've been done for a week now. been sitting at home watching mail call, the history channel, the learning channel.feel like I've gained 10 pounds allready. I do snow plowing during the winter months, so other than that, It's vacation time and getting business ready for next spring. what's everyone been doing??

    Respectfully,

    Richard/Owner ;) :D

    The antidote to boredom: Vodka.

    sodgod, You do some very nice work there. I really like the retaining wall. The grass in that picture is just soooo nice (pic of equipment)... just feel like taking an afternoon nap on that grass!! beautiful turf. I'm 17 but my primary interests lay in mowing, cleanups, mulching and snow removal. Anything other than that i'm not terribly excited about LOL. I like to build things, modify things and buy/sell/trade stuff too.
    So far, just one more cleanup to go then we're done! for the last week or two i have been looking forward to this! we take on alot of one time cleanups during the fall, its good money really helps pay for the toys, errr... equipment i mean! there for a while we were booked for 2 weeks. Usually had one guy working for me, on a few jobs had two working (thats serious productivity). it has been such a WET RAINY dreary leaf season here... really sickening.

    ps. wish i could fit all my equipment into one picture haha.... i can't even get my truck and trailer into one pic (much less my parents idiotic driveway)... one ton Ford dually w/12' flatbed and a 22' trailer (that i built).

    Keep up the good work!
