Oy vey......the weatherman has been saying this would   be a warm day.........mid 50's instead of 70 and I mowed they entire lawn and got finished just after 5:00  

Looks like a 16 time mowing season this year  wtf  ....makes sense because it is this Deeres 16th season here  clap

I will be taking a couple days off now.

I needed your help yesterday,Mr.King of concrete.........

I had to mix up 4 bags of concrete(I`m guessing here) 80 lbs apiece(?) with a damn trowel.......I asked the sup where the hell the mixer was at.He said he didn`t want to see me carry so much stuff up to the roof. wtf

And that was the easy part.............The hard part was carrying those bags over my shoulder from where I had to park the truck,behind the building,thru the abandoned building(app.100 yds),up three stories,carry them up the ladder and thru a roof hatch that a church mouse could barely get thru.


Oh.........and then to get the two and a half water jugs that it took to mix it up thru the same scenario.......

I asked him where our crane was............He told me he didn`t want to spend the extra 500$ it would take to send him there. pizzedoff

Jeeze.....so lets spend extra to have me do all this........And to think I have a foreman`s/safety meeting every damn month to give our input about this kind of dumb ass shit from happening..........

Yeah Cravn if you had your Deere you could mow your place in a few minutes these days smile

Maybe you should stop by Home Depot and check out the deals they have right now for all the Deere

Yeah Barry I would have let you borrow my mixer that I showed here years ago.........after all the tons I have mixed I know all the easiest ways.

I mix 80lb bag in about 2 minutes and then roll right to the spot to dump it out and if I have to carry it the thing has a handle on it hellyes

I don't know if they sell these at Lowes or Home Depot anymore but that is how I got the first one and when I found another one at a *used stuff* store I got a backup for $5

You would be amazed how good it works and is much better than mixing with a shovel or even an electric mixer........not even close.

Here is a Google link where I even see somebody made a youtube video (of course not me) I have mixed over 25 bags in one day with mine before (when I built my gate at the end of the driveway)

These days I usually will mix 7 bags in a day since it is still work to make things AFTER I mix and pour..........and it takes about 1 minute to clean it after you are finished..........next trip over to Home Depot I will be putting 7 of the 80lb bags in the trunk (extra strength type and they have a good price)......and I save money on gas by NOT driving my 4X4 over to the city.

I had to mix my concrete in a 5 gallon bucket.........no joke. bs

Then carry 3 gallons at a time app. another 20-30 foot away......That's some heavy shit btw.... crazy

And yeah, we usually have electric mixers.....A drill with a paddle. Soimetimes a grub hoe and a wheel barrow,but of course no way was I getting a wheel barrow up there. painful_lol

Sometimes this certain Superintendant is an idiot.......

I`m 52 yrs and the two other guys they sent me,one is older and the other looks older than both of us............Sometimes good help is hard to find. dancing3 .

Top of dam head actually got burnt yesterday from cutting the lawn.
I
Today our friends are picking ME up at 9:30 and we are going to the beach. Had to rub it in to the Mrs as she was in 42 degrees and rain yesterday Smile

And trust me I do look at the riding mowers at the Depot and Lowes every chance I get, but my purchases always get moved to the back of the project list.
