    It's bad enough last week I had to deal with rain from Ivan, a gasket went on the 20 hp Kohler motor on my small lazer oil was just pouring out so that was down all week. I had a employee do a no call no show the entire week so he could put a new motor in his jap car and I had to finish cutting the last 11 lawns on Sunday. But today tops it last night after eating diner something fell into my eye and no matter what I could not get it out. So after waking every hour last night in pain I went to see and eye doctor this morning $230 dollars later he removed some sort of white rock under my upper eye lid that had been scratching me every time I blinked. So now I got one blue eye and one pure black from the drops everything is blurry and it looks like I'll be taking today and tomorrow off. Then on Wednesday we get to start cutting lawns all over again. Can’t hardly wait for this day to end and with any luck I'll have my little lazer back before we start cutting again.

    Thanks Mac knew I could count on you for sympathy. I am headed to a dealership to start picking out my new truck for this fall so one eye is going to have to be good enough today not time to take the whole day off.

    Next you'll want time off for losing your leg!

    Way too many slackers in the green industry!

    Still hurts but I think I will be working tomorrow had enough time off and the 48 k price tag I saw today says to me I need to work a little harder still. Well I got an estimate in 30 mins perhaps they will help me with my new truck.
