    I have had that happen a couple of times with mowing...I call to tell them that we won't be able to make it to the property today, it won't be until Monday and they tell me that the lawn looks great and we did a good job...etc. When actually we never set foot on it.

    Hard to believe bobby hearing something like that from someone in NJ. Usually something like, "when the f*** are you gonna get around to doing the shrubs? They look like s***."

    lucky you. he did once bring me to this little rundown place, they sold hot dogs. it wasnt a stand, it was a building, it was a "main street " type setting, its all a fog to me now( u know, cheech and chong thing) memmory isnt that clear, and im not very familiar with south plainfield, but they were the best hot dogs i ever , ever ate(or was it the best weed, i ever smoked? ) i think he called it "texas weiners?" sound familiar? not the one on 287, this one was in the town of south plainfield
