    Sounds like a good deal Kurt.

    Well, we had to double cut some lawns today. Can't believe it, it is September 22 and we are double cutting. Better than no cutting like last year. :laugh:

    Its spring again! another 1.4 inches of rain last night and good chances of rain through wednesday. Way too wet to mow today as water is laying around and grounds are just saturated. (basically just under 4' since last monday.) Not worth ripping up yards and loosing customers!

    The more I sit and think about it, the more I want to make it to the expo this year. (Being unable to work due to rain and wet conditions has me itching to get away). Walker.. you going this year? How far is it from the expo to your place? The lady has an appartment just off campus in cinci so I figured I could drive there and stay after the show.

    Got yesterday for about 3 hours and mowed after one inch of rain. Just did all the rental properties. Was able to get out today for a full day. Started raining here about 5 pm lightly and then we had some more rain here a little bit ago. This year is turning out to be a good one.

    While out working today, I was offered a part time job with the City that I live in with the parks and rec department. Would be a change of scenery if I would be able to do it. lol

    I got a Citation in Willoughby Hills on Rt. 91 for "Unsecured Load." While Driving down the road, some Leaves & Grass (Chopped up from the Walker) were blowing out the back of my truck. It was only 1 dump from my walker and I had BOTH Boards on the sides of my truck. I even got out & tarped it up while he ran my plate..... Still got a ticket. I can PAY IT & Waive it but, I might actually burn a day @ Work & go to court. I'd like to see the dash cam. The whole situation didn't bother me until a few hours later. Once I reflected upon the whole ordeal.... He made me feel like a Criminal. "Less Tackleberry... More Mahoney!" Haha!

    In a nut shell can someone explain to me how this thread got a half a million hits? I know if I read the 1000 pages I would understand but I can't even get one person to look at a central Texas site.

    Us Ohio boys are dedicated.

    And on the unsecure load, that's becoming big. I had a statey eyeball me for a couple miles about a month ago, had a bed full of grass but luckily it had been rained on so nothing came out. Since then I've left my mesh tarp on the truck and just pull it back at each job. Takes 10 seconds and it's alot nicer to cruise down the road and not feel like an a$$ for dumping grass and leaves everywhere. (not calling u an a$$, that's just how I used to feel lol).
