Expect the Unexpected ...

The man who does our yard ... and does an amazing job, by the way ... is retiring after this week. He told me a month or two ago that he'd hurt his shoulder ... but he was valiantly trying to make it through the season so he could schedule surgery over the winter.

Well, I guess the man's in so much pain that he just can't function. He's decided to sell all of his equipment and call it quits. Surgery or no surgery ... he ain't coming back.

So, one more thing for the to-do list ... find a reliable yard man ...

Our property isn't anything fancy ... we just need someone to mow and weed-eat along the fence. Of course, it's late enough in the season, it may only need mowed one more time ... but our guy also came out a couple times in the fall and drove his mower over the leaves to mulch everything up for us. Before you ask, there are just way too many leaves to rake. Raking just isn't an option.

Anyway, if you know anyone you'd recommend for the job, please drop me a line at ThirtyWhat@Comcast.Net.

Forward troubles, Illinois
Lock the front door, oh boy
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn
Bother me tomorrow, today I'll buy no sorrow
Doo, doo, doo, lookin' out my back door

  1. Why yes ... yes you can! And I'd be happy to pay you what we paid Frank ...

    The only problem is ... do you have a lawnmower? Our little riding lawnmower died a few years ago ... that's when we started hiring it out.

    But if you're looking to start a little business on the side, we'd be more than happy to be your first customers! :D
