    If you had the chance to keep the lawn care biz running, and maybe expand into something else what would you do & why? Bare in mind you have or can get the money!

    I would like to do repo work or something like that. Or may be even a bail bonds operation.

    That looks awesome, if I ever get down that way I will surely stop by :drinkup: Along a similar line, I would open a bowling alley myself...old school type, dark, dingy, smoky...:laugh:

    Of course if money was truly NO OBJECT I would just buy an NFL team. I would be the scrub owner sitting in the owner's suite in a tank top swiggin' a Budweiser on camera :laugh:

    When we open .... there will be an OPEN invite to ANY member (of age) to come in n let me buy em a drink ...play some pool or cards

    I'd show some more photo's but we want the finished look to be a total suprise to everyone

    Lots of Tourney's .... bring'n em in from GA, SC ..... APA stuff ....BCA .... Pro's guest spots ....Sprint tour fore the Pro Ladies .... Good Stuff

    On a side note the man whom owns the shopping center had one of the larger Tree services in Miami ...when Andrew hit .... he retired ...n started buy Real Estate ...n to say he has done well is an understatement
