I grew up in Portland, Or and got hired on with a framing crew at 19 building primarily apartments and hotels. After about five years with them I moved to the East Bay (Ca.) and continued framing for another four years until the bottom fell out of the housing market and the work dried up.

I'm the middle child of 3. My parents both worked to make ends meet. We didn't have much money, so we didn't pay other people to do anything for us that we could do ourselves. We had a 1/6 acre garden, and grew a lot of our own vegetables. Which helped a lot with the grocery bill even back in the sixties.

I was employed as maintenance supervisor at Youngstown State University for 14 years before retiring and moving to Florida.
