    Who is laying around drinking football and watching beer.

    Who is staying busy.

    I hate doing nothing. I recently was going through the paper and saw a few advertisements for handyman work around the house.

    Anyone ever tried this out with any luck?

    Just finished my largest leaf cleanup ever... over 2 acres... solo... took 9.5 hours@$40 per. I'm heading back over to the same house today to trim up a few tall shrubs and then I'm going to take a ride with a fello LCO to find that elusive new Shindaiwa super blower. Inside my house I'm adding 3 large closets (loosing sq. ft. out of shop) to the master and number 2 bedrooms. I still have a bunch of cleanups to do.

    In Jan and Feb I'm heading down to Virginia's Eastern Shore and building a house for a friend.

    Yup, staying busy as usual.

    Still winterizeing equipment (snow on the ground and about 18 degrees) painted great room, stairway wall, landing walls, upstairs hall foyer, and office/toyroom, including cielings. Getting estimates out and scheduling jobs for next spring. Contacting some lawn customers with comprehensive packages. Putting numbers down for fert & squirt program for next year. Making wish list for new equipment purchases next Feb. and playing Mr. Mom (220 228 whatever it takes :p )

    I will ready the Ice hut this weekend and start some ice fishing very soon, also doing more pheasant hunting. I want to try and squeeze in some video game playing, but likely will not get that done:(. I have to admit though I got my eye on next season already though.

    Forgot, also getting Xmas cards ready for customers.

    Today I am writing bills and sending out christmas cards for customers. Tommorow is going to be spent washing and waxing all of the mowers and trailers. I'm a little behind on that this year since we have 3" of snow on the ground and the summer equipment isnt put away yet!:dizzy:

    I'll be doing leaves until January. When and if it snows I supervise plow trucks for a friend and my off time is spent looking for a house and commercial property in NC.
