A movie ticket was $0.25 as was bowling per game or 5-games for a buck, and you could buy a sack of 10 hamburgers for a buck. So making $5 a week cutting lawns was a big deal.
When I was 14 I got my working papers, started working with Moony Landscaping laying sod, planting bushes and trees, creating landscaping beds, and cutting lawns. Worked in landscaping until I was out of school and scored my first manager job. Then for 28-years I was an advid home gardener, doing mine and some of my neighbors property, and now at 53 I started my own company. So... 45/years... LOL... it was more fun when I was 8... LOL
