Saga of the Yard Work Guys

Yard work guys
Could not do enough on their first visit.
They did so much weeding 
I went out and helped until they shooed me away.
There were three or four of them.
Expensive? Yes, but they stayed three or four hours.

The entire first season they took care of the yard this way
Every single week but they were expensive.
We cut them back to every ten days.
Three or four guys working their tails off, shaming me.
Year one.

Year two.
They have cut their crew down to two guys.
They stay an hour or two the first month.
The next two months they are here about forty five minutes.
Price remains the same.

This is year three.
One guy barely gets out of the truck as it drives by.
He does the yard in twenty minutes. No weeding. 
Same money, because we fought them on the raise they wanted.

Yes, this may be sad, but we live in the country. 
We are lucky to get any yard guy at all.
Next year it will be a six year old with a push mower
and we will probably have to give him a raise.

Goats are fun... hehe... protect your trees, get a box and move it as you go. Weed and feed... I feel bad for the guy in the truck. Less people employed, less people to buy other goods and services. We are all so connected. Hugs. have the very nicest day. Ann

I need a goat. Any idea who has one to give away or sell cheaply?
