    I have been helping a friend out with his business all of this past season, and he is swamped with work. I believe he ended up turning down over 20 yards, which could have been ALL mine. So that is my plan this year...pick up my own plus his extras. I purchased a new Exmark Lazer Z yesterday, and I'm eager to get started. I am planning on about 20 properties to start. I already have a full time job, so this will be supplemental income. I really enjoy cutting grass and working with landscaping.
    Happy New Year to all! I hope prosperity finds us all in '09!

    Let me add, I still help him with concrete curbing...he is a jack of all trades. Grass, landscaping, curbing, master drywaller, and the list goes on.
