    I'm glad I keep my camera with me. I can snap spy photo's of the competition and learn what they are up to. So far I'm the only one with a trimmer and blower so I think I'm safe for the time being.

    I'm already training my grandson to try to stay ahead of them. It's looking very promising.

    Not teachin' him quite good enough.... no ear protection, no eye protection???? What if he gets soapy bubbles in his eyes.... then he'll be sittin' on the side of the truck, lookin' in the side mirror for an hour trying to get it out like my helpers do.....

    Was that a Wally-World he was parked in front of?

    Might have been a dealer picking up junkers for repair.

    I think at least if you're poor and broke you might can still see the light, isn't that something, when you can see what money does to folks...? We are, no matter what anyone says or does, no better than anyone else on this earth.

    That truck looks to be an F-350 full ton, since it's probably paid for it is quite possible the man lasts the season.
    As for myself, I am more worried about the working man pushing me out than the guy with all the bling bling.
    At the same rate I wish him all the best of luck, nice outfit especially if it's a starter.
