Hey, everyone and, I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. I am here with another fun new series. Jobs I have done, these are not in order just 15 jobs I have done, some were good, others I hated, picking strawberries was one of the ones I did like most times and, definitely miss now that I don't get too do it anymore, at least I can still relive it, with you here. I remember it, like it was yesterday, especially Grandpa waking us up at 5 am and, saying you're burning daylight or time to roll out lol. We would all get out of school, for summer break early the end of May I think. So, we could pick berries, for Grandma and, Grandpa, or my Mom to sell at the berry stand and, also earn some money for ourselves, usually 20 dollars a day or so more or less, we also had a lot of fun just laughing and, joking out in the field and, eating strawberries of course, we usually picked a variety called shuckstons, they were the best and, also sometimes Totums, they were big, but not as sweet. Those were good days though. I miss those times, then after a hot day we would go swimming down at the creek. Did you ever pick strawberries?

I did pick strawberries. My mom and I would pick them and my mom would make the jam. The last time I picked strawberries I couldn't move for a week afterwards! A job like that works every muscle in your body. Some you never knew you had!
