    This year I opened a garden center, it has been very demanding.
    I thought I was busy running a grounds maintainance business. Try running two businesses. At least we have got alot of work from having a garden center. Everybody who comes in wants the trees installed or ponds put in etc...

    Just thought I would share what I have been doing since I have not had much time to chat on lawnsite.

    I must confess, I hired a couple of great employees so I am getting a little time to do some things I enjoy. Always enjoy reading what the other lco's are up to.

    Just try to keep your eyes on what your doing and you won't tear your mowers up.LOL:nono:

    Yeah, I saw where they just "HAD" to mention he was using an AR 15 and the fact that it's the civillian version of the M 16. They had a whole big write up in the paper about it.

    That kind of thing really ticks me off both 3 ways!!!

    #1. They got to take a hack at a weapon that a lot of people would like to see banned.

    #2. The idiot ticks me off because he used it. Why not use a bolt action .223??? Same thing.

    #3. Heck why don't the press give some other idiot the heads up on a good accurate rifle suitable for this type of use.

    I am a good shot with my .308 sniper rifle. maybe I should have went hunting the dummy :D Counter sniper if you will. I would have been sure to keep my mouth shut about his weapon of choice.

    Duh Mr./Mrs. reporter :confused:
