    Something like an 04-05 Silver Eagle with 250 hours. It was only used once a week, and a couple of times I would rent it from the in-law to do larger one-off mows for my maintenance clients when they were out of town and such.

    I've had some installs fall off on me for the year but the customers have stated that they want them done next year for various reasons.

    They are tearing up the road at the Farm House for the new Wind-Mill farm going in that area, so the hitching ledge might be put on hold.

    A church liked a wall I estimated for them, but they want to get other projects done first.

    So I've been doing a lot of smaller stuff such as summer maintenance, tree/shrub trimming, lawn grading after concrete installation, and request for lawn spraying for Crab Grass that has gone out of control this year.

    Next week I'll be starting on a simple little retaining wall for the mother-in-law and after that a drive-way widening with a retaining wall. Nothing huge, but sometimes I prefer how the small stuff adds up.

    I nice little retaining wall, and flagstone path at the mother-in-laws house. I picked the perfect time of year to do the job, as it's been fairly hot out here. So ultimately I have an air-conditioned house, and a pool to take a dip in if I get hot.:cool2:

    I call this place my second office too. When I'm in Bloomington and I need to do some cpu work, etc... then I just go there.

    Thanks. Thumbs Up

    It's been flippin hot out and it seems like it's taking forever to get each step of the project done. 95* with heat indexes of 105*. The AC unit keeps kicking on and jumping the ambient temperature up about 20 degrees. That and the side of the house becomes a freakin oven when the sun gets over there. Basically I've been working early in the mornings till about 4:30 - 5:00 p.m.. At that point I'm usually completely soaked from sweat, The heat I can deal with, this high humidity is killing me.

    Ultimately I'm taking more breaks, drinking over a gallon of water a day, and it seems like it just takes more energy to do anything.

    It's going smoothly, just slow because of the heat. Hopefully today will be the last real hot day in this stretch and I can get it done at the first of the week.
