    Well March is right around the corner and we received 6 unsolicited telephone calls yesterday for estimates so that got me to thinking.

    By now all of the new "professional" lawn jockeys have probably had their homemade flyers printed at the local Qwik-Print and should be plastering them all over innocent and unsuspecting mailboxes any tme now. So, being that I enjoy seeing new equipment as much as anyone and I am bored, after the estimates are finished today I think I'll ride on over to the closest Wally World and watch these new "business owners" spend their allotted $373.25 to make their season equipment purchases and then watch them pile them into the trunk of their 1972 Pinto, or hang them out the hatchback window of their Explorer.....:dancing:

    Mike, that '72 Pinto is probably worth 5 times more now than when it was made being it's an antique:laugh:

    Yeah I was just thinking Rod. One of our Home Cheapo's is directly across the street from one of our Wally's and then there is a K-Mart across the street from that and a Sears up the road......shoot I might make a full day of it :clapping:
