Anyway, my yard guy is tall - he told me 6-4 - and so thin he could hide behind a soda straw. He putters around town on his riding mower with his other tools in a small trailer on back, picking up odd jobs. He can't see well out of one eye and is very sensitive to light - which I presume is one of the reasons he's on disability. A lot of guys "on the dole" as they say are lazy as sin; he's not. He also works on motors, whatever makes a buck.
He seems a nice guy, and is married. When we first came to this small town we were ripe for the picking - "Hey, look. City slickers. Hot damn, easy money."
He doesn't seem that way, and the last time he was here he took an old TV in trade for the work.
$40 a day for mowing and weed-whacking for a 100' x 50' lot. Not bad.
