    Yea I'm going it to keep it a one or two man show this time though. My new work schedule allows me to have Tuesday through Thursday off so I may as well cut some lawns. Picked up the Husqvarna MT 52 28 today. I like it alot. Can't wait to cut some grass with it.

    Does anyone around the Flint area have any decent small equipment they are ready to get rid of? I am looking or a backpack blower and perhaps a trimmer. I need a few extra things, as I will be doing a small bit of mowing again. I have pretty much gotten out of it, in lieu of the lawn and bed care (chemical), but have a tiny amount, but not enough to justify buying new pieces if I can find something decent used. I certainly appreciate it ahead of time. Please let me know.

    No, I am out of Flint, in Genesee County. Started in 1984. Unfortunately, there is now another one here in Genesee County, about 20 minutes to the north in Clio. Why the county ever allowed them to do a name that close is beyond me.
    The one you speak of, I may have talked to him before. I did work for Bob Evan's restaurants some years ago, and then we got some checks for work done down in that area. I looked them up, called them, and we got it straightened out through corporate. :)

    Has anyone ever complained to the state police and made a difference? I was pulled over in my new to me car for having a performance dot approved exhaust by a cop who about rearended me doing at least 80 trying to catch me speeding and then looking for any scrap he could find. He tried asking me a bunch of incriminating questions for a nibble on anything with meat on it and even questioned my insurance paper because it was a print out on my computer because I am waiting for insurance to be mailed to me. This is the first time I've been pulled over and text book questioned for incriminating evidence on things he had no reason for asking. Kinda made me hot especially because the real reason I was pulled over was because I was driving a nice Honda del sol in Lansing at 10:30 pm. 2nd time in Lansing with that car and second time being pulled over. The first time they at least waited to catch me at a speed drop where you can't really see the sign. Think its even worth the time calling the police post?

    Exercise your right to remain silent.

    Give them your license, registration and insurance. If he isn't writing you, ask if you can leave.

    Get somewhere with MSP? :laugh:

    I've seen these idiots think they can stop a vehicle on slippery roads just because they walk in front of it. Several times. Everyone else waits for a break in traffic. Not the troopers. They are one level above God.

    I wasn't really hot till I left and realized what happened. If I would of been on my game I would reminded silent to see what the punk would of done. I could tell he was fresh out of cadet school. Down towards me unless you are endangering someone you most likely won't ever be pulled over.
