It doesn't matter to me.  If someone stops on a Sunday and wants to buy hay I'm happy to take their money in exchange.  Since I work Monday thru Friday days away from the farm, evenings and weekends are usually when business is done around here.  I don't like to be disturbed before 10 AM on a Sunday morning or any other in mid January when it's 10 below but any other time is OK.  When there's work or business to be done we do it.  One time Grandpa loaned a hay wagon for use in the Lumberjack Fest. Parade on a Saturday under the condition that it was back by Sunday morning as there was hay to bale Sunday.  The guy who borrowed the wagon just couldn't believe that we worked on Sunday ::)

Weekends around here are my most productive of income.  I have a great number of rubber-necks and more likely than not I get them to open there pocketbooks and share the contents. ;D

  Had a couple walking down the road from a neighbors house they were setting and ended up a very good customer.  They did ask if I was open for business as it was 7:30 in the evening and was tootling around on the gator finishing up some odds and ends before supper.

It's been a while since I had a day off. I work my regular 40 hour job. After work I usually help my friend in his woodshop for a few hours every night. On weekends I help my dad on the dairy farm which is 100 miles away. This is where my mill is so any free time is spent sawing or plaining lumber. I get three weeks paid vacation and all that is spent on the farm. All my coworker's think I'm crazy to help my dad on the farm and use all my vacation up for nothing. They don't say too much when I tell them I sold a half a pickup truck load of hardwood lumber for $750. That nothing always seems to pay off....

Even as a kid on the farm we always worked 7 days a week. Never seem to ever catch up...... Too many irons in the fire....

I do not work on Saturdays at all. Not my stuff, not your stuff, a sabbath. I will help a neighbor fix a broken car in the middle of the road and kids fix their bike tires, since it is like helping a fallen horse.

But, as for regular work, if it needs two days of work to fix your car or whatever, better get it here Thu 8:00am because once the sun goes down Friday night, that is it.

I would just put up a sign that says "Do Not Disturb on Sat./Sun" or 'God worked six days and rested the seventh and so do I" then a 'Beware of Dog" sign underneath it.
