So I called my new boss this morning to see what time I should show up to go look at all the lawns I will be mowing this summer.

I went in around 9:30. Met with the boss and off we were to go look at the lawns we have so far. There are about twenty lawns so far. I know that does not sound like a lot of lawns, but the size of the lawns are good.

Well the lawns that we looked at were not growing enough to start mowing them. So it was looking like I would not start till next Monday working 40hrs/wk.

Until I was introduced to the guy in charge of the fertilizer program. When he found out that I was a Certified Pesticide Applicator, His eyes lit up like he was a kid in a candy store. He told me he could use a guy for the rest of the week. And of course I said yes!!!!

So tomorrow I rejoin the Michigan Workforce, However weak it is!

If brute force doesn't solve your problems, then you aren't using enough.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Well done Sprocket. [Applause] [Applause]

Sometimes things all fall into place.... I hope you have a good summer spraying and mowing. I shall be sat behind my desk, jealous of team-mates who get to see out of a window...

Congrats! Glad your certification gets you started this week.

Must admit I don't start mowing until after the wild violets are done. [Smile]
