    I know what u mean it's hard when it's 95 outside, to keep going out in it and working hard... but u gotta do what u gotta do.

    MAN! WHAT A RELEIF! NOW I KNOW I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE! I really do think its the heat. Lately I haven't felt like doing anything! I'm in central Arkansas, and we had some three digit temperature over here. And I only mow one day a week, you probobly mow 8-10 hr. days for atleast 4 days a week. But..... 04turft is right.... ya gotta do what you gotta do.

    I'm ready for the fall.

    yeah yeah! I just got whacked with jury duty today, I didn't get selected for the case, but I was split half/half pissed off, but at least I can make some money now and get back to work.

    Lately the harsh heat has slowed me down a lot also. I have actually enjoyed customers calling with "Maybe next week it will need it". Not making the money sucks, but the 100+ heat sucks worse. This weekend we got two large rains and it helped me out today. Not having a dust storm while cutting was nice.

    Its even near 100 in Green Bay so I know what you are feeling. Yes I also sometimes feel that its difficult to get out there but just remember that you could be stuck in some basement all day working for some idiot. Even though its hot, its still outside. Take em one at a time and build in some nice breaks. Plan something fun to do later in the day and give yourself something to look forward to. Even if its sitting in the A/C watchin tv with a cold one. Remember that there are less than 6 months until Christmas.
