    His sign says "Reasonable Rates"...........I thought he would be more on the high end.

    i have been trying to get a shot of a guy here. He is to quick for me, he is in his 60's i think. He has mercury sable station wagon pulling a 4x8 trailer that has 2x6's falling off the back. his trimmer which is electric hooked up to a marine battery and a cart. trimmer and blower(broom) are stored in the back seat. Cart he puts anywhere it will fit. Wife goes along and pushes the cart for the trimmer.

    That pic reminds me when my cousin called me to ask if i would mow her lawn. Her lawn guy mowed her lawn with his lawn tractor and when he was done drove up RAMPS into his truck! Well he wasnt so luck when the rider slipped of a ramp and ended up on top of him. He was older and ended up in the ER and my cousin had an upside down rider in her yard for 2 days. hahah funny as hell.

    I will. when i had to pick up a helper in the trailer court i thought it was a hispanic rig. I have seen them down side streets. About a month ago I was at a stop light half off in lala land thinking about what had to be done the rest of the day he passed right in front of me. My mouth was about on the seat of the truck and i was shaking my head.

    There was a guy in his 70's or so last year that would do trimming for older residents with an electric trimmer, but he carried a 100 ft cord and had a new van. A grandson of one of them works for a decal place and put on his van windows " grandpas lawn service" no name or num. it was just a joke to say he appriciated what he was doing.

    The guy from the top is out on sats only. I will have to try to have the cam phone handy. video would be even better.

    I too am at a loss for words over seeing that first picture. Who the heck has their Christmas lights still up in July anyway?

    Also, it looks like this is a duplex or apartment complex, so I'm sure an anon. complaint to the management about a commercial vehicle being parked there every night might be a cause for that to stop.
