While mowing the place where my parents stay for the winter, a man stopped and asked if he was willing to help him in his business of emptying foreclosed homes and then mowing the yards to keep them from looking abandoned. This guy works for several banks in the area and has more work than he can keep up with; is this a sign of the times or what!!! Bill has been interested in some odd jobs for additional money and I had been resisting the 9-5 grind for him again or worse, shift work nightmares!
