    Sales were up just over 6% but expenses went up about the same.

    For me it had its ups and downs I started off great till about June then things dried up a bit. I had my best August ever and if not for all the rain would had had my best September. My October was good but to much rain and November has been good still cutting some lawns with the good weather here in Baltimore.

    I should have said to, that a lot of that went to cover extra wages. For the work.
