Today is a different kind of day. I regretfully had to call my clients and tell them I am sick. I hate not showing up for work, especially when it lets the dogs down. But today I wanted to talk about my brother, he lives in Jacksonville Florida and I don’t get to see him as much as I should.
He’s a great guy and is the kind of guy who makes friends everywhere he goes. He is a member of a great church, and as you can imagine knows everyone at the church. He does a lot of free work for the church members and for the neighbors that live around him.
He has the nicest fiancé that you could ever meet. I love her to death.
He works trimming trees and shrubs at a “Jacksonville Area Tree Removal” which is very hard work but he loves it. He loves being outside in the fresh air and connected to nature.
He studied horticulture in high school and then he got a bachelors in horticulture in college. He is the pruning and trimming trees now but is studying to be an arborist. He headed up a tree removal crew for 2 years but does not like being the guy that’s in charge and taking all the arrows.
He still helps cut down the trees and slash clean up when they need him but most of the time he does pruning and tree trimming. He got very lucky when he got this job because he tells me he works for the nicest people and the best tree service in Jacksonville Florida.
He goes to night classes at the community college twice a week and he works on Saturdays. I can’t imagine being able to keep up with all that he does.
He’s a fantastic guy and he’s coming here next week. I have not seen him in 2 years, and I can’t wait to see him.
