Hi Wilson, Octane was great!

The chute has a funky design the in effect windrows the grass instead of throwing as far away from the mower as possible necessitating go over the yard multiple times even after only a week. Also makes taking care of leave in the fall a pain.

No worries. When your charger decides to make it's way over give me a call. I'm going outside shortly to modify the mower with a heat gun. As an explanation as to why I might not hear the phone.

Yes I do know her, she worked/s nights at Benetti's. She's also about to go on maternity leave.

Not yet sir. Though I did have an interview for a job I'm not really sure I want at this point. I have the weekend to decide if I want to call for a second interview. I'm hoping some other things yield fruit before I have to make the call.

Hi Wilson. Glad you were able to stop by the shop the other day, and glad you enjoyed it. Sorry to have missed you, both in Charlotte and in Atlanta. I hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed your travels.

I haven't had any fresh coffee in a week and a half.
I am about to completely be depleted. I have run around to Crema Coffee Roasters and they were closed due to a family emergency. I tried to have a friend pick up beans at Crema in Greenville and he let me down! I really am getting desperate here.
