Yesterday was my birthday. I did what I did last year. I didn't do a damn thing that was related to work. Other send my two part time guys out to finish a mulch job. Spend most of the day sleeping. Here is last years post. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=74781 I did get to go sailing this year on my birthday. I did fined out my girlfriend is terrified of small sail boats and lake water. O well. Well my grandfather gave me the best birthday present ever. He gave every one of my cousins a used car or a truck (there is 12 of us). Which is easy for him since he is an auto body guy/mechanic/used car salesman. So they where all wreck at some point. But I never got anything (my father demands every car I rid in has ABS, airbags and never been in a wreck) So my grandfather always felt really bad about it, since my sister and I got left out. So what did I get I got a 1972 Bobcat 600M skidloader. With a bucket, spikes, manure bucket and forks. He put a new motor in it and replaced all the hydraulic lines. Now he just has to paint it and I will get to bring it home. All I need to do is put tires on it and weld a crack in the bucket. YAHOO!!!!! You can't beat that. The best part is there is pictures of me in this bobcat when I was 3 years old. He bought it off his friend who he always borrowed it from. He still can't figure out what to get my sister that isn't a car.
