I will be fixing all the mowers for this place but first round of work comes in tomorrow four push mowers all just needing springtime tuneup . I got some not so good news today too from my heart dr. my ekg wasn't normal so more test and they think might marfans he said he won't rule it out until some more tests are done. I focusing on the good news this is one of biggest contract in this area for small engine repair.

Everyone needs a win now and then. Hope your doctors are able to come up with a plan to mend whatever is ailing you.

Congratulations on the business and I hope that your health problems clear up. One thing on the business, keep real good records, including pictures of the machines when they come in and go out. Have accurate date and time stamps on the pics.  I've learned that a picture is worth a thousand lawyers. I'm always suspicious of new business. Did they pay? Did they play games? Be carefull. Good Luck, Rick

Keep notes on your clients too. Being in the construction business for 33 years sometimes folks get an aggravating charge because I know from my records I'll earn it. Lol

I'm tired from watching them unload all day. I'm at a stand still until tomorrow because they waiting on budget approval the CO ok it but they are waiting for someone else to ok to. I did clean a carb for a customer today and finished up on a rebuild.

I spend my days waiting for approvals so I can buy stuff for work. It's an annoying but necessary process
