    Man it has been busy doing leaves down here. This last rain we got brought down 90 percent of them. With the cold we have gotten the grass has slowed down. I was hoping to get 2 more passes for leaves and cutsafter this week. But it looks like that might be a stretch to get them.

    Well, another hard day of leaves of here. I am so tired that I forgot to lock in a trimmer today and it rolled right out of the trimmer rack and I lost it along the road. Someone picked up a perfectly new trimmer. Just got back from the police department from filing a report for it. I feel like such a buffon.

    got some more leaves done today, got stuck in the rain while sucking up the last pile, that sucked was soaked and frozen as it was about 35 degrees.

    rained pretty good here, big drops a couple of times. Enough rain to wet everything, but lucked out it was pretty warm here

    We've just been Motorin' on thru. The leaves are really starting to come down. All Except for the Accounts whithin a Mile of the Lake. They're Just starting to turn. Other than that, we're just moving along, slowly but surely. Accounts that typically take 20 Min.... Are now taking over an Hour. At least it's not like last year. Last year the leaves stayed on the trees until it snowed in mid-Nov. Then they all just Dropped.

    Its really nice out today and what am i doin? sittin at home. Been going from 9 till past dark everyday, i needed a break. Gunna work on equipment today and try to relax. I started feeling sick yesterday so hopefully an easy day will help keep a cold off.

    I'm about 4 days back logged on one time leaf jobs and still have 6 good size accounts to do for first time since all the leaves fell, then on to round 2 of clean ups. try to milk em some.

    Yep i should of been out working earlier too. Kinda of breezy here and I did not feel like chasing the leaves around with the wind blowing. Was going to clean out my Mom's gutters but did not feel like walking on the roof with the wind blowing too. My luck it would have blown me off the darn thing.

    Plus the Bucks are playing now too.
