Probably around 9 or 10

I made a buck an hour for mowing, raking, digging, scooping, hauling and what ever else there was to do

1st "real" job was at 13 working in a grocery store
$2 an hour and a free breakfast or lunch (depending on the shift)

You know
Thinking about it now that was poop work but I always had a $100 in my pocket

and some money in the bank

At 16 I went to the chevy dealer and paid cash for my first brand new pick-up

Thinking about it now

Life used to be pretty sweet

I started working when I was 12.   My sister and I went into business for ourselves so we could buy clothes. We made flyers and mowed lawns, babysitting, house cleaning,and pet care. We also sold pecans and blueberries door to door that we got from my family's farm. Most people might not consider that a "real job" but it was since it was necessary.
