    being fortunate enough to be 37 and still have both of my parents is a blessing. So every holiday i do my best to take off, not only for my self but also for my guys.... Where else am i going to get a good home-cooked meal like this?

    i was recovering from a night of heavy binge White Castle eating followed by lots of beer. You can bet I didn't work that Sunday lol. I saw one guy out mowing. Easter is one of the 5 biggest holidays. Christmas, New Years, Thanksgiving and 4th of July imo. Unless it's snowing or an extreme emergency, take the time off. There's 360 other days to work.

    I didn't work...but it seemed that every other homeowner was mowing their own lawn on this Easter Holiday. My gal & I noticed all this activity during our leisurely walk through our neighborhood.

    i noticed that too... but i think there is still a difference between a resi mower and a commercial mower. Still rather push ahead the wek before and have enverything done by the holiday.

    That is a good point but you can get there many times before the people show up
