    I finished my last property at 6:30 tonight (saturday) at least i made a good amount of cash and got a few more jobs to do next week. Had to unload the trailer in the dark. Between school and landscaping it gets kinda tough to keep up this time of year because of the shorter day light hours and the rain.

    Posting pics is easy... If your computer is only a few years old or newer I'm sure that somewhere on there you will have some photo software hiding, usually comes with your printer when you install that. Resize the pics to 800x600 or smaller and you are good to go. I think at the top of the Pictures forum there is some better directions as well as some links to some free picture editing software you can download, but I may be wrong...

    As for the rain... Here it only rained/drizzled this morning BUT I wasn't about to go out today! High today was about 41 with a strong north wind, most of the day was colder than that... No thank you... I will just go out tomorrow sometime and catch the few I had to do today!

    Grass has come to a halt around here. Plus the weather is getting bad around this area. I'm not sure how many cleanups are going to get done this fall.

    I took my son to basketball practice this morning, and then put in 8 hrs at the factory. I guess for me I will be mowing all day tomorrow as long as it doesn't rain too hard.
