    When it rains I sit down and think of stuff to put on the forum.

    The main thing is to keep the customers informed thru it all.

    No business in Auburn, just driving down Division the other day and saw a setup that fits your description.

    cntryboymc,

    Do you buy your John Deere equipment from Lakeland in Savannah, NY?

    Just curious, I have been dickering on a new ZTR with them and they mentioned an Auburn LCO who fits your description who uses the green equipment exclusively.
    It can stop raining now....

    I do all that business and equipment stuff, but I got a hair cut too and it made me feel better. Now it's time to go to the bank. We're geting nasty lighting stricks so I packed it in for the day. It's not good to walk around with a big steel stick in your hand and head phones with a antenna pointed toward the heavens. I believe in God but why push your luck, if you know what I mean.
