    Even the telemarkets have stopped calling. Somebody please call...one minute I can't stop the ring now its silent. I call it myself just to see if it got shut off or something. Ho hum. :(

    I know its just a matter of time but even still its depressing.

    What's your number man, I'll call you. I'm just sitting here waiting for the driveway to dry off a little so I can get outside and do a few more practice runs with my new trailer.

    Fear Not! March is the month for call. Near the middle/end of march phone gets ringing here. Ive gotten a couple calls for scheduled work aroung late march early april.
    It will be like a switch turned on when all the calls come in.

    Still early here.
    We got our first call yesterday for an estimate for fert and for a weekly cut and trim. I was surprised because we don't usually get calls in February.

    We haven't even started advertising yet, so I asked her where she heard about us. (I do this with every call; I like to know what advertising is working and what isn't).
    Anyway, she says that it's from some advertising that we did two years ago, and she saved it and put it in her phone book.
    Kinda nice to know that previous years advertising is still working for us.
