Default Vacation time!

Well my family and I are going one our yearly vacation. This year we are going to California for 10 days.

Thursday I had a crew of 3 and we finished up all the jobs. I told all my clients about my vacation and said, "see you in 2 weeks". I do this every year. My clients are very understanding and appreciate all that I do. I gave them all a contact number and an emergency # just in case. I told them to remeber the height of their lawn last year and how well it looked after I returned back to work. With all the rain we are having I told them to turn off their sprinkler systems till I get back. I had a funny client like Breeze has and she says to me, if I turn the system off how will it get water. I almost died laughing. I said I not sure, it has only been raining everyday for the past month, so I think it will be okay.

I boarding now, so I'll talk to you all later.

John

We are in the San Diago area. Sunday we went to LA on a road trip. This week my son and I are golfing everyday. Our first stop today is at Torrey Pines. I am trying to attach some pics but I am having some trouble doing it with the I Phone. Maybe I can figure it out.
Off to put my name on the list so we can golf this afternoon.

John

A vacation sounds great!

Lawn Service = Being out in the gorgeous sun, walking along poolsides, learning about wildlife... ... the worst vacation ever!!

I'm still debating if I should do snow removal this winter, or take a vacation. Maybe I'll go camping in late October...

You'll see me in the news, "Man lives in box in alleyway, torched a garbage can & roasted marshmallows"

I wonder what a cheap get away would be... I feel like renting a hotel 30 mins away, just to feel like I've left my boring life, ahaha! It's been YEARS since I've gone somewhere outside of Canada.

Maybe an affordable all inclusive cruise trip... I'll look into it.. sounds good.
I'll jump off the boat stealing a raft & become a pirate with a Breeze flag.

Arggg matieee!!

Default Little, where's the green grass?

Staying down here in Southern Cali. the only green grass I have seen is on the golf course. Most houses here have native plants and shrubs that surround their homes. Most LCO's I have seen are commerical doing maintance on building and office spaces. They do look great, but very small. I know that Cali. is in a water conservation state. But wow . Is Northern Cali. more green?
we are enjoying our stay here in this great state. I must say it is very clean everywhere we go.

John

How do you keep things running when you are gone?
