    yup, gas this morning was $2.40 a gallon. dimension went from $19 a bag in 2004, to $23 a bag in 2005, to $29 a bag today. my long time , and very friendly buddy buddy customer called to ask if the price was still the same as last year. i told him, "nope, it's been increased by $8 a month." he cancelled. there ya go.

    scuse me, geo...but...in cop school, they taught you how to: lie, without blinking. they taught you to: make sure your VICTIM is handcuffed, before you beat him. and, they taught u to: swear your partner is telling the truth, reguardless. WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE TAUGHT YOU WAS: simple mathmatics.

    You ain't close - it is from $35 to $43 - that is not a big increase. Bobby has it somewhat more figured out than most - actually really the most - actually the really really really the most - on this forum. - I wish he could take a vacation to SE. Iowa, and spend one day on my mowers mowing the big time properties. He would then have ammo for a lot of threads he has not even thought of yet. Believe me - He knows where he is coming from.

    it's 2 bucks a cut on a four cut a month, less on a 5 cut month. what are you raising yours, 50 cents a cut?

    bob--was born with enough math skills to add an $8 price increase to your average of $17 per month and it comes out to exactly $25 as I said.

    they should have taught the same math to you when you were in the new jerkey boys home.
