    Yea I was very happy I got $550 back out of the billy goat and $150 out of the smaller backpack, so I was able to get some new hand tools and pay on some bills. Yea I plan on running my leaf loader till the end of may. I always get monstrousity spring cleanups.

    I usually only do spring cleanups on my regulars so would have little use for a leaf loader this time of year. I left all of my accounts in pretty good shape in the fall, not that some leaves didn't blow onto them.

    I did get a call from a guy that chose someone else over me for the fall cleanup, a guy that never showed up. This has been going on for 4 or 5 years with this guy. He calls me for a price for fall cleanup and plowing, hires someone else and then calls me when they don't show. I did end up doing it one year, but mostly he's just a waste of my time, so I did something I don't usually do...didn't bother to call him back.
