    I haven't got into the bus. yet. But, come jan-feb. I'm gonna go crazy with it. I'm a Police officer now but what the dept. doesn't know is I've already got my two weeks notice typed up. After dealing with the people I've dealt with, I shouldn't have any problems dealing with customers.. As for support, The only one who is 100% behind me is my wife. My father and mother say I'm an idiot if I quit my job. There's no money in the lawn care business! I know too many that are rockin in the business. I'm tired of dodging bullets. I can't wait to start dodging tree limbs...I'm pumped!!!!!!! I've always been the way when someone tells me I can't do something, I go out and do it great.....
