    Would prefer to skip leaves all together. It's alway's dirty, dusty, wet, cold...but the money is good.

    Snow is in our forecast here for tomorrow, so whether I'm ready or not my season's coming to an end in the next couple weeks. Blow some leaves around and do the final mowings for the season and bingo...I'll be sitting in my deerstand for the next few weeks! :blob3:

    The grass season was basically over 3 weeks ago here in southern va with the drought. There is some rain in the forecast the next few days but even with that i see maybe 1or 2 more cuts max this year. I guess leaf season is the next big thing for 2005, but Im not looking forward to them as dry and dusty as it is.I may be in the market for the job as a greeter at Walmart thes winter or at the hospital working as an EMT

    I'd much prefer to mow on a nice stady schedule year round, no extra crap, no huge weather changes, no LEAVES. Sure it gets boring doing the same thing on the same lawns week after week but having it that way makes the days fly by. Heck I start on monday and blink twice and it's Thursday... Some days I even have to check my schedule and my watch to make sure I'm working the right day since things are going so fast!

    Things are slowing here cutting wise. I sitll have a couple lawns to overseed and fert to apply to some as well. Winds a blowing today so no go for that stuff. GOt done cutting at 1:00 and have been revamping my mailbox. Currently waiting for a coat of paint to dry on the box so I can hit 'er again.

    I do enjoy the cutting season, I will be sad to see it go, but with the fall comes the change in seasons, it all comes with good.
