    :blob2: Im so ready to put a lid on this season for the sole reason is that customers are really startin to suck. people sign up for leave pickup and request that we dont do them until the second week of dec. because of there oak trees and pears hang onto leaves. so now all the leaves are down and there calling you can come tom. but when i call them back to let them know ill see them the second week of dec like requested its a problem, maybe its me but ive so had enough of impatient people this year. tony

    Ditto, almost done here, maybe two weeks if it doesn't snow first. I will be going away for week during new years. Thinking about that is keeping me going.

    I hear that Tony. Everyone wants you to hurry up and wait, or wait and hurry up. They want them done by Thanksgiving, but don't want you to work if it is windy because it will cost them more. We really only have a problem with the few that we only do cleanup's for, most of our regular mowing customers are understanding.

    I here ya'. I got the bulk of the cleanups done last week, just a couple left. Then put on the winterizer apps. We had a little snow that hopefully will be gone soon . Then I can get the loose end tied up and the winterizer on. Winterizer should take only a couple days. I saw the snow coming with mixed feelings, on one hand I do have this work left to do but I need the break for a few days. It's nice to spend a couple days with my daughter.
