Yo With Hurricane Fay breathing down my neck, This might be my last post on LS. After Hurricane Charlie wiped me out just 4 years ago, I just don't have it in me to start over again. I got in this business after a divorce left me totally broke 15 years ago. I was already retired from a state job at the time. I started in this business with an electric chain saw knocking on doors to trim palm trees in 1993. By 1996 in was cutting grass by day and going to college by night getting my AS in 1999 and BS in 2002. I also became the single parent raising my children in 1996. BTW they both have degrees now and are professionals. 1999 I added pest control. 2000 I added a wholesale nursery. 2001 I became a licensed Irrigation Contractor. 2004 just 50 days after buying a retail nursery, Hurricane Charlie wiped me out. A 1.2 m loss uninsured left both mentally and financially broke. I picked myself up once again and two years ago started a Fert & squirt business and have been doing OK. The lack of stress of a one man band has made me a happy camper this last year. I have been enjoying riding my motorcycle and actually using my boat. I have been doing extremely well with my love of playing tournament pool and winning many tournament. But sometime in the next 12 to 36 hours my world may come to an end. Statistically I have 7.5 years left. But my investment income won't let me live, only survive. I have been hand to mouth before and don't want to go there again. Mother Nature can be a cruel B!tch.
