    Since Hurricane Katrina wiped out my last mowing equipment arsenal a few years ago, I have since recovered.

    Dude, your equipment lineup has expanded! Wow, that is great!

    I believe we're going to have a crazy spring season this year. Man, we sure have been getting a bunch of rain lately. I sure hope everyone prospers in this business for 2008.

    I hope the Rain Gods are generous enough this year to keep business steady throughout the year.

    My truck was stolen out of the driveway back in November, 2007.

    WHAT? Somebody stole your truck? Was the key in it or did they break into it and hot wire it??? Did insurance take care of it?

    No, I had all the keys. '05-'07 Ford Super Duty trucks are very simple to steal. The '08's have a chip in the key, which without it, the engine remains immobilized. Hopefully this will cut down on the frequency of thefts of the latest Ford Super Duty trucks.

    My insurance company really came through for us. They paid off the balance on it, and I was actually able to recoup some of the initial down payment, which helped me with the down payment and purchase of the new truck.

    As a result of our unfortunate experience, the perimeter of our property is well-lighted and I had additional security integrated into the new truck.
