CHEESE2009 is on a distinguished road
Default Wow!

So the kid I hired (11 years old) to work every Wednesday with me was fantastic today!

I did my share of running back & forth for several reasons;
Changing cutting height
Adding Fuel
Pulling the mower up a few steps

but that was all.

The kid makes amazing lines when he cuts the grass, especially after he had his Pepsi - sugar = victory!

Working with this kid compared to my former assistant (22 years old) cut 3 hours out of the day, fast fast fast!

He had a great time helping me out today & was tough enough to go through the entire day with me.

This kid is basically earning $13/Hour & it's money well spent!

I can't wait for him to grow up a little more & learn how to trim.

His job is basically to use a self-propelled & blow after I'm done trimming. My system with him actually works compared to the former assistant.

So now he's off to go to his soccer game, I guess he's going to sleep well tonight!

When you are that age, you want to be around the big kids and impress everyone. Maybe it's 18 where many lose that energy and start getting lazy.
