    On April Fools day no less, I actually thought it was a joke. I was over my brothers place waiting on 5 yards of fill dirt to level off his backyard. We were getting it from a buddy of ours from high school who we have known since we were 10 years old. He runs a lawn care/landscaping business here in town and I worked with him a few years back. He finally arrived after getting stopped by the DOT for a seat belt ticket after an inspection and crap. He tells me his company is trying to phaze out lawnmowing in a few years and were not taking on any new accounts this year but were getting a buttload of calls the past 2 weeks. He noticed my flyer in his grandfathers store and told me he had been referring the calls to another LCO but he was not a big fan of his work and told me he would be referring the calls to me now. I have only given 1 estimate and was wondering when the calls were gonna start and then I got that great piece of news. Got my equipment today finally and just got to get my new truck in the next couple weeks. I hope the calls start pouring in now. I was just waiting for the psyche out April Fools joke but it was all true.

    Thanks guys. I sure hope the phone starts ringing. I knew it was gonna be a grind and a tough go in year 1 and maybe parts of year 2, I just hope with this gift that fell in my lap I can start off my business with some good success.
