    Geez you're old.

    Technically, I would probably be on year 28. Full time. I had 3 years of plowing and shoveling before that.

    Although, if we are talking the first time I shoveled for my dad and was paid.........we'd have to add another 10 years.

    It was the "Blizzard" of 79...I remember it like it was yesterday..You had to shovel your way to the truck...I had to sit on a milk crate to drive...I put on my snow suit and made my way to my 1972 Chevy that we had installed a Cummings the night before the impending storm..We plowed for 11 days straight...

    Don't you have some grievance form to file since you had to work more than 30 minutes?

    Besides, as MJD will attest, I am the "jester" of plowing.

    Also, it was '78. We couldn't afford milk crates. Or snow suits. And it was a Dodge. And it was 13 days straight.

    I wouldn't say it has gotten ugly as these guys like to joke around with one another, however, lets try to focus on grandpa (I mean Grandview ;)) and his 75+ years of plowing

    congrats and good luck this season fellas :waving:

    Well he was born into the monarchy of snow plowing. I think he's still just a prince, and not yet the king as he has to overthrow his superior. Hes waiting on his arsenic delivery from Amazon, but UPS is running slow this week..:help:

    So ... What's in store for the celebration ????

    A new headlight for your Boss Plow?

    A new avatar picture if Giada?

    Your yearly servicing of the wife ?

    Oh...I know.... A 10% increase across the boards of your plowing service fees

    Whenever Defcon enters the room, it gets very ugly.

    Throw in GV, Dave and BUFF and watch out.
