    The first job I ever had was picking butter beans for $2 a bucket. It took me all day to fill one bucket. Then the farmer didn't have change so he took us to a convenience store to break a twenty. I spent my $2 on lemonade after spending the day in the sun. Came home with a few coins.

    One of my earliest jobs I had I spent a summer being a Hoddie for a team of three brick masons. I worked my young butt off. It was a god awful pace/grind but I earned a good wage and earned some respect. But best of all I did learn to lay a plumb brick course.

    My first job was at 15 years old, in the local flea market. I worked for the poster guy. He sold t shirts, posters, leather goods and other assorted rock-n-roll paraphernalia. Great fun. It was like 5 blocks from my house so I got a lot of hours.

    First paying job? Construction labor for my uncles business. Then thoroughbred farms. I was raised on a hay and beef cattle farm in Missouri. So that I guess was first.
