    Today I let my guys have the day off while I helped a friend of mine who is also an lco, when i returned home about 20 minutes ago I notice that all of my 3.5 acres has been mowed, striped, trimmed, and edged. So I walked toward my back door and saw a note on it and it said "Thanks for being a great boss". :blush: :blush:

    Lunch??? More like maybe a gift certificate to a nice dinner with their families... ( within reason ) WOW, people with a work ethic like that seem to be few and far between Nowadays.. I'd show them how much they mean to you... I know I would. Hang on to them.

    Thats really nice. I am glad to hear that some people appreciate their employment. If I gave my guys the day off they would spend it talking about how underpaid they are.
