Things are picking up now that it's irrigation time. I have gotten more calls this week. Interestingly, not all pump calls either. I have a carpenter shop with a planer that is not running to look at Friday. A business store in town with a display case that has lost it's lighting to look at too. Several pump calls have come in also, so good to see business coming in! Keep me busy, I'll take it! One is a new customer too, may mean future business.
Well, spring is here, the irrigation calls have started coming in! Very glad about this. It's money in my pocket and service calls to do! I like that. Yesterday, went off to a nice property with a pump that seized up during the winter. When they tried to start it, the motor buzzed, then tripped off. I didn't take the pump apart because the customer is a landscape company that will do that. So it was a quick call and worth a $100.00 bucks! Glad to see the warm weather coming, pumps are starting all over the county! I'm sure some won't start and I may get a call or two.
Just wrapped up my 27th season at Purgatory! It's a good feeling to be heading into down time. I needed it! It's been a rough 5 months. The equipment ran pretty well, but I had a lot of other issues to deal with. Life happens! Oh well, I'm used to it, what else ya gonna do, right? I feel pretty lucky over all. I've had some tough years, like last year! So I'll just chalk this one up to pretty good! I'm looking forward to some time off now. A quick trip out to Pennsylvania to see my kids, and the cute little grandkids! I need some love from them! I am not near family much, and miss it all the time. My son, Jordan, is on his way down today too! That will be nice to have him here for a few days too! Beers on the porch and some good grub tonight! Jordan is great, he really appreciates me and looks up to me. He wants to be like me some day, so he tells me! I hope he can have a good, happy and productive life for himself! He deserves it!
