    I am!! Got the trailer loaded and just waiting til around noon to go out. I want to leave now, but something tells me people do not want to hear the mowers this early on easter morning!!! Growing like a jungle here, will probably switch most to every 5 days for awhile instead of weekly.

    I was going to go do a few today since they are not going to be home but I thought I'd consider their neighbor's and wait until tomorrow.

    I wouldn't even go out on a regular sunday unless absolutely neccessary, nevermind easter. I think it is best not to go out. Even if the people you are mowing aren't home...what about the neighbors?

    Even though I am behind I shut it off yesterday a 3:30 because we had a family dinner and will also have dinner today at 1:00 after church. I really do not like working on Sunday anyway and I refuse to mow or do landscaping on Easter.

    I agree with everyone else... Consider the neighbors and your customers, NO ONE will want to hear a mower/blower/trimmer on Easter... Its just not good business. Besides, Easter is like the one national holiday that people usually get together and eat early (at least in my family/area) we always have a big Easter dinner around 2pm and I KNOW my customers/family would cringe if they heard one of my mowers going... Heck, My wife gets mad if I even "look" at my equipment on a holiday! Best to wait a day, it will be there tomorrow!
