Working at a bait shop, night crawlers were 25 cents a dozen. Boat rentals were $7.50 a day.

Raised chickens and sold eggs. Also built and sold birdhouses and tied a few fishing flies. Good times.

Picking potatoes fifty-some years ago. That's my little sister doing the same thing. Forty cents a barrel. If I wanted something through the course of the year, I earned it during our three week harvest picking spuds.

My mother hated snakes. She paid me a penny per inch to remove them. She hated them so bad she didn't even want to see the harvest, so pay was on the honor system.
