    I'm done. Sold my lawn business. Customer list, equipment, trailer, all delivered to the new owners garage in exchange for a cashiers check. His son also left me a substantial deposit on my truck and plow. I'm holding on to those til next month when he comes up with the balance.

    Its been real, guys (and gals). Maybe see you around now and then in the off-topic forum.

    Congrats Bill,

    Glad to hear you're able to "retire". There are many times I'd like to get out myself, but the reality of actually finding a "buyer" who will pay you what the business is actually worth is tough to find.

    Hope all goes well w/ your future endeavors. Sometimes being a pee-on ain't so bad afterall. A lot less headaches.

    The right offer from the right people came along at the right time. I havent yet decided what I'm going to do for a "career" the second half of my life but have found something in the meantime which pays well, isnt very strenuous but is still varied and challenging enough so that I wont go stir-crazy, a 7:30 to 4 workday with no weekends, benefits, etc so I will ride it out til the right thing comes along.

    I guess the only unanswered question is:

    Do you still plan to cut your own grass? :D

    Take it easy, hope things work out great for ya, and don't be a stranger here. :)

    My ex got the house after our divorce, she does her own lawn with one of my 21 inch mowers, the plumber at my apt complex mows the lawn here on the weekends.

    So the short answer is: No

    Congrats on getting out when you wanted ... divorce can be a rough time ...been there done that.
    Hang tough.
    For the most part it has been a pleasure .. . I think we would get along quite fine in person. If you ever get the urge to travel to Canada drop me a line.
