    Every customer will be cut before the weekend. I will cut Saturday if needed.

    Customers want and should have their lawns looking good for the memorial weekend.

    Exactly!... I usually just work right on through like any other day.
    Personally, I have little desire to take a 3 day weekend at the same time the rest of the country is doing the same thing.

    But this year... I think I am going to.
    But most likely I will be making a 4 day weekend of it.
    I'm taking Friday off and will probably make a 4 day weekend of it.
