    My employee cut is toe off last week while cutting weeds in a ditch. Other than that it has been a good year.

    Got stung for $9,100...one of our largest residentials...don't ask why the bill got so high.

    Oh well, I will tell you...$385 per cut, fert 6 times a year @ $885, aerate twice a year at $685, other services to boot.

    Been doing biz for bout 7 years now and never a problem...then they filed Chapter 7 (no good to me that I even have a lien on the prop...they can't be forced to sell since it is the primary residence).

    Maybe in 10 years I will get 3 cents on the dollar...LOL (big time)

    someone stole my brand new husqvarna chain saw that i had used all of three times. what really burns me up is that i had it in a crapsman case. that means that whoever stole it, thought they were stealing a crapsman and got a husqvarna instead.
