Gotta admire the old timers. Worked like bulls!

The difference is, we have machines now. And instead of doing maybe 20 houses we have to do 100 just to pay for the equipment and the men that want 12-15-18$ an hour. Oh and then the gas, yeah machines make it easier but they make us spend 50% of our earnings.

Nevertheless I still respect my grandfather and my father for working before machines were made available. My dad still talks about his hedge trimming with scissors and mowing with the reels.
