    customer gave me a beautiful bottle of wine. she said, "thank you so much, our lawn has never looked so great, we are proud to reccomend you to our neighbors." and i hate wine. but, my toothless nasty, loud , obnoxious mother in law was here the entire day (11 hours, 32 minutes, and 15 seconds, to be exact) , so i drank the whole thing. i was thankful for the wine. it's a damn shame, with all this wind, i'll have to tack on an acorn and leaf surcharge this week.

    I got a bottle of fancy wine from a customer as a "tip" last holiday season. It's still here turning to vinagar. The case of Coors Lite bottles I got from another customer is long gone however.

    Bobby, you could win a prise, if you can pass enough gas to move acorns.

    I actually bought a couple of nice reislings out in the finger lakes this summer for my best customers and plan on giving them the bottles at the end of the year. Hands down my favorite kind!

    The joys of family....Only need a little wine to make it through the visit you are doing well. Two bottles and I would be worried.
