    Start back on a regular mowing routine again tomorrow after a long winter. Been doing cleanups and sidework for 2 weeks now but the bread and butter, for me, is still mowing.
    It's been a wet spring.
    Picked up 6 more clients in an upscale neighborhood I got into because of flyers. Also, I have pretty much run a mow joe out of business with these properties. They all say they found you get what you pay for. I feel if I do a good job and remain honest, I will have these properties for a good long time. These are "word of mouth" people. I've already had a couple of more referrals I have to look at from this neighborhood. The only problem with this scenario is if I pi$$ one off, will I lose more? All in all, though, a good deal for my company for the present.
    Cashflow should improve greatly this year. People know who we are.

    Good luck to all.
