So I did two days today. Feels like someone hit me with a hammer. All over. :)

Well, at least since it was raining I was able to get my spray setup complete. I got my wand, trigger and nozzle setup. I just have to find the energy to put it all together and calibrate it.

LOL you are me in the future.

My rain just finished up, got a crapload of work tomorrow.

Set up my sprayer while I've been waiting though, hahaha!

I wanna fill it up with beer & see what happens....

It'd get warm really quick. :p Well, I suppose after it all goes flat you can try it on the lawn. I wonder what beer will do to a lawn. Probably just attract neighbor-type pests. "I smelled a party."

Saturday 96
Sunday 105 with late day thunder storms
Monday 97 with late day thunder storms
Tuesday 98 with late day thunder storms
Wednesday 95 with late day thunder storms

All my jobs for the week are sod jobs. I feel like I lost 5 pounds today. One man didn't show up today and one quit at noon. Didn't come back from lunch! Neither answering the phone.

Got home about 5, had half a beer and couldn't keep my eyes open.

Having sod delivered in the morning for 2 jobs so I guess I am working Sat and Sun. Going to be too hot to just leave them on the sites.

swstout, sorry to hear that. I can't believe with near 10% unemployment in this country that there are people that won't stick to a job.

I do think a lot of unemployment cases are voluntary. :(

There are a lot of people who wont take a job because of unemployment. The 2 from yesterday are kids (18 year olds) who still live at home so they don't have any pressing needs.

My wife and I were on the first job at 5:30 this morning and got the sodding done by 10:15 Already 97. Went to job 2 and wet down the pallets and covered them with an aluminum tarp. Will go back this afternoon and wet them down again. 5:30 again tomorrow. This job is only about 3,000 sq. ft.
