    Do any of you guys put up x-mas lighting? Franchise deal - buy on the open market - ect. Looking for extra work along with keeping a guy or twon busy for a couple weeks this fall/winter.

    I am going into the business this year along with a friend that does pest control. Already have about 25 jobs lined up and haven't even advertised yet.

    No its someone elses--I never get to my own stuff---its a cottage on a lake---no heat....had a small propane heater and cordless tools. It's not great but 1000 times better than it was. It beats the broken sink, caved in floor, chipped toilet, no sheetrock and one wire that was there before---they are happy with it.

    The bath is small--- it's like working in your pocket. :)

    If I lived somewhere it snowed I would plow my arse off. Some guys sell: xmas trees, wood, prune etc. I am lucky enough to be kept busy through the winter.
