    This is my helper trimming some Holly's today. This is one of my year long contract jobs. The owner came out to give some Christmas cards to me and my helper and in each card was a nice crisp one hundred dollar bill I thought my helpers mouth was going to hit the ground.

    Nice bonus!

    Where in NC are you?

    I hate trimming bushes that big, everytime I do them that size I wish for some kind of machine with a bucket on it like the power company uses so I can trim without standing on a ladder.

    Very smooth work. Nice to hear about your tip. What brand of trimmer are you using? Merry Christmas.

    I know what you mean with the Christmas "bonus" I got $50 from a old lady for Christmas last year, plus a box of chocolates. She is always the lady that offers me pop, or other things like that. Very good customer. She does talk too much sometimes, wanting to visit for a long time, so I always find time to stop by when I am not on a schedule and have time. Also looks like you have a very good helper.

    That second pic looks a little scary, what with the lean and all. :dancing:
