    Didn't go out today. Its been raining all day. Hoping to catch up tomorrow as long as it doesn't rain. If not Saturday. I have a customer to do that has a good hill to mow and don't want to be sliding down it. I have been growing steady for the last 3 weeks. I wont bid low cause I am needing to make a profit not brake even. Cost to get there, fuel, wear & Tare, my hourly pay. 1/4 acre lot here is paying $35 to $40. Don't let them talk you down even if you are needing the customers you will be losing in the long run. I did get the chance to blow off the deck and clean the other equipment. Also sharpened and balanced the blades. Also went and got my new door signs. Ready to rock and roll!!

    We mowed and I spread mulch and trimmed hedges all day! Gotta stay on schedule! No customers complained!

    I did get started about 1:30, mowed a couple of jobs. Mowing worked fine. But, about 5:00, just ready to start another property, some sprinkles, then a full rain storm. Yes, behind in schedule, but glad I got some jobs finished.

    Didn't even attempt it today, 3 of them are commercial accounts and the rest have a couple good hills and are higher end customers and i don't want to rut the yards or tear up the grass from a sliding mower.
