    Ive had a quy help me before part time and it just didnt work out so I went back to being solo. This past summer I hired a security guard to protect the buissness office and shop. She has done an excellent job at security.
    She came to me and wants to apply for a job mowing, she says she can handle the Z and has it under control but Im not sure............what do yall think???

    Oh, you have to be a fool not to hire her. She's got the looks right there on the mower. She looks like me, perty. I wouldn't think twice. Give her full time with benifits.

    Just be careful and don't run her over... we've all seen the sad results of that.

    How many times are you going to let her get away with naping under a tree. She looks a little lazy. She also looks a little shady, I would keep an eye on you luch box too. One way to keep her out of you lunch box is to put peanut butter on the handle.

    Is that where they get the term "dog days of summer". To each his own, I like to get a little dog on my mower sometimes, but more often try to get a little... meow!....
