Yeah! The good old cannery days. I ran the cookers for a while one year. Only got burned one time. I learn fast. Hung on after the harvest one year and unloaded box cars from other plants at the old sugar beet factory. Remember that? Had a carton dropped on me from about 20 feet one night. Glanced off my shoulder so no real damage, but I took off the next day and when I came back the foreman said he thought he really hurt me. I just wanted the day off. Used to spot the cars by taking the brakes off, getting them rolling, then quick jump on and try to apply the brakes at the proper spot.
This was the 50 cent per hour days.
