    People do weird stuff with those 12" pop ups...saw one in the middle of a turf area sticking out...guess they expected the lawn man to trim around it. I need to get a picture of it...people do such crazy stuff.

    I'm a hack for not doing irrigation work. This pic I'm prepping for a small lighting install.

    Thanks Jim.

    The gf broke up with me this past weekened after 5 years of being together.. I don't really know why she did I never got a direct reason.

    But I guess it gives me more time to work and learn new things

    hate to hear that mitch, this may not make sense to you but i was always told that anyone can gather 'em. takes a cowboy to scatter 'em.

    i got a feeling that you'll be fine :waving:

    #3 is my favorite. WM used to make the 30 series heads to prevent root intrusion, but failed. Why you guys don't include "cookie cutting" trimming of the heads every few years in your service work, is beyond me. :dizzy:

    Mitch, like most guys, might have missed the "we need to talk" part of a relationship. Our deal, going on thirty three years, has been to wake up in the morning, no matter what dissagrement happened last night, love each other and start over fresh: forget the past. :)
