    We are located in Brookings SD only a few miles from Minn.

    How many others are from this area?

    Got 5 inches of snow Friday night almost doubled our total for the season. Temps supposed to be 50 by next weekend, not even freezinf overnight by then. I'm ready. It has been a rather mild winter, but we had a very cold October even though we worked most of November and December, the winter has gotten long and monotonous.

    LOL! I don't even want to get into the coyote /jackrabbit thing! The first person I had ever seen fertilizing a lawn with a liquid application was back in 1983(I think), and it was you, Doug. I was walking to class (yes in Brookings). I imagine you have a few more customers since then... I am in Chamberlain; my real job is grounds keeper at St Joe's Indian School. I have been spraying trees and pasture off of a 4wheeler for 5 or 6 years now. Am just now getting into lawn fertilizing. I hope I can keep up. BTW, not much snow here last week, mabey an inch. Later - Foster

    hey.......4 of us in SD, how about that! Pyro we're just about neighbors, I do almost all my work in Yankton. Live in NE Neb. Maybe we could get together some time....?

    On the Pyro thing, did you know Will Kissel from Yankton? Wonderful person....God rest his soul......another pyro nut, but a great guy! I knew him pretty good did work for him a few times, but spent more time talking!

    Good luck all! THE SNOW IS MELTING......!!

    I was real good friends with Will he used to come over to our fireworks stand and we would also meet him at the PGI conventions every year. The last time I remember seeing him is when him and Kasey came down to help us set up our VHS homecoming show. He was a great guy and really knew his stuff.

    What is the name of your company, I may have heard of you before. Some time we could possibly get together
