It started off ok ... I woke up ... after that it was all down hill. First thing I went to take delivery of my new mower ... wrong deck so I will have to wait until the correct one comes in on Friday. Next I went to my first house ... someone else was mowing it? Knocked on the door and asked the old lady what was going on. She stated that her old lawn care company contacted her and advised that she had WON a free lawn cutting. Was not sure how to handle it ... so I left. I will probably bill her anyway, but I hate to lose her. Yard is a good money maker. Now that I think of it ... it is a good marketing tool ... I guess ... will be calling the other company later to yell a lot. Next two yards went ok ... good cooling down time. Lunch yard was at Grandma's ... I cut the grass, she fixes lunch and we visit for a few minutes. This is a free yard, cause it is Grand Ma's and my mother would kill me if I charged. Anyway ... I hit a root in the yard that I have driven over 6000 since I was 8 years old. It catches the blade ... bends it, the blade bar and messes up the shaft. I push the rest of it with a 21 and take lunch with me. Now I am back were I started, Mower Shop ... 1 1/2 hours later I am fixed and my wallet is a lot lighter. Next yard ... is ok. As I leave I run over the curb and think nothing of it. Find out at the next yard that I forgot to strap down the gas can that I filled up at the end of yesterday. $15 worth of gas gone. I give up and go home. Now I am behind for tomorrow .... It can only get better.
