    We are finally getting done for 07! It's been a long one!

    Just curious to what you all do over the winter break?


    Plan for next year?

    Any of you have any big plans during your break?

    I have absolutly no plans other then going to a couple trade shows, trying to grow my business...and can't wait to spend more time with my family!

    What about you all?

    Gearing up for snow, here. Have been out 3x salting, with a few straggler lawns as the snow melts. Between snow events I get out prepay/renewal letters and work on equipment. Trade shows as weather allows. With all that going on it doesn't seem like there's much down time left anymore, but I guess that's ok too, as long as the books show the results of all the work. Oh yeah, have to close out year end books and do taxes, too, lol. We do try to slip down to Disney around the last week of March before all h**l breaks loose.
