    I would be in a world of trouble. I worry about that a lot. I work alone. I'm not lucky enough to have family or freinds that could take over for me. Next year I will be hiring someone to help me. Hopefully if I need a day off or if something happens they will be able to continue working.

    yes it would carry on. i have a close bussiness partner that would carry the load for a while. on the record..i would rather be ran over, face down in a mud puddle, by a dump truck full of dirty tampons than to have that happen.

    Yea, esp. since it is about the end of the season. Between my dad and a LCO friend, I wouldnt have any problems at all.

    If you mean literaly "tomorrow", then yes. It's almost winter here. As long as it was my left leg and I could still plow with the right.

    During the summer, no. I don't have any family or friends close by either. Good thing my wife is the bread winner.

    Same here, I'd be ok for at least the first 6 months, at least financially...
    The rebuilding would blow thou.

    Big, BIG trouble. My wife is always worried that something could happen to me and I'd be scre**d.

    Well, since I do 99% of the work and my partner doesn't, no, I wouldn't so much be in trouble as I would pissing him off by shoving a big workload on him...
