    Do I?????

    Crap.

    I know Steve owes me one. Might have to get it from him. :laughing:

    I posted this in the old thread, thanks for letting me know there was a new one. :gunsfiring:

    Got tires and rims for the Ford. Treadwright's "The Claw". They should make a difference.....

    Will do.

    I'm expecting good results and expectations though. They look great from a quality standpoint.

    That and 4-wheeler magazine did a great article and testing on them and really liked them over-all.

    That and almost 1/3 of the price over brand new, I hope they are awesome!

    My Brother-In-Law in Champaign has also been running them on one of his trucks. Had them for 2 years. He said that he now has one that is looking "suspect" but he also has the older style with just a new cap and not the bead to bead re-tread like I got.

    Over-all he has been super happy with them for use around town in the summer and the traction in the winter.

    tires look like they will be a HUGE improvement over whats on there! Matching rims to your signage also I see....that should stand out! That reminds me, next rain day(lol), I need to paint the snow tire rims for the new skid.

    As for the pitcher(s), you & steve can both buy 1 each and I'll help you guys drink them. Sound good? Just give me a date, time, & place:drinkup:

    Rain? What is this rain stuff you speak of?

    I know I'm ready for the weather to change, but not sure I'm ready for the snow just yet...

    contracts sent

    Got all my contracts sent out this week. Learned my best and largest client is bidding me out this year:( Not sure what to do...hold my prices or lower them...client acted like low bid would get it! What a joke. I have been serving with client for over ten years...never had a major complaint or problem in over ten years...

    It's all about the money unfortunately. Having it for ten years is pretty good in our cut-throat economy. Feel lucky......

    Bid it like you normally would, if they don't take it, then it's the other suckers loss. Just hope it's not Blackshore that gets it.

    Just found out I'm losing another one of my better shovelers tonight....that's 2 that I'm losing due to their regular job changing to something that wont allow them to help on snow this yr. Really sucks because I already needed a couple new guys this yr, but now I need 2 more on top of that. So if anybody knows of anyone looking for some winter work, PLEASE let me know!

    OMG! (lol) your shop is 1/4 mile from where you can pick it up!

    They now have a Peach whiskey at 80 proof also. :drinkup:

    And don't forget the corn whiskey at 100 proof.
