    Nice to have a day of vacation today! Anyone else relaxing? I just went out to get my newspaper and I saw another company with the mowers in the trailer. Anyone actually working today?

    Is there really such a thing as a day off when you don't even think or talk about this business. I THINK NOT!

    Homers mowing is shut down today, no work. Gonna do the fireworks thing tonight, grill some boigas and duwogs on da grill. Got the walamelon chillin' in da fridge. Am I caught up? Why heck no I ain't. Do I care today? Look in my eyes and see if you see any give a XXXX. I worked on my 21st anniversary the other day, the least I can do is take this one off. That grass will be there tomorrow when the store is opened back up, just be a little taller than it already is!

    Married 21 years............hard to believe that one!:p I must be a good husband:angel:

    Happy 4th..................enjoy it.

    Congratulations Homer.
    I take off every 4th and do the grill out thing and if I had a boat I would do the lake thing. Probably go to a local bar and watch their fireworks show on the lake tonight. So far its been a good year so this will be far more relaxing of a day than last year. Sure I will think about work and have done some paper work this morning but no maintenance or touching lawn equipment. Okay I did touch my tractor LOL but i didnt start it.

    Yep always take the 4th off.

    We are leaving in a little bit to go to a cookout at my brothers house.

    Hopefully it won't rain so we can swim.

    Well, we're not working in the lawns today, but I'm using the blower and a shovel to finally get a little house cleaning done, catch up on the laundry, plus perhaps a little paperwork, but I consider this a day off. By dark, Dr. Crown may stop by and it'll be time to relax.
    Have a happy 4th everyone :)

    Bill.................you have to use a shovel and blower to clean your house? I know mine gets dirty from time to time but never that bad!

    I did use a shovel and blower in my shop last night, been a long time since I cleaned that up.
