Good way to earn a little extra do-re-mi, though.

Done it way too many times. And sometimes for free. And by free I mean trading labor today for someone else's labor later.

14 hours a day at $.90 an hour 4 to 6 days a week, fair money for a 13/14 year old.

By the hour?!?! Fuck that.

We were paid by the bale. Damned if I can remember how clue. But you could make a pretty good lick in a long day.

A dime/bale, maybe...

Stack 'em three wide, 12 high, 15 ft long on two trucks, and 22 ft long on two trucks. Two guys on the ground and one on the truck, we'd load the four trucks in just over an hour with Grandpa Lipshitz (came to this country in 1911 with 35 cents yada yada) driving. 90% of the time they would have to be roped down for over the road, CT po-po frowned on leaving bales on the road. You could smoke in the cab but not in the field, and had to spit on the dash and snuff it when you were done.

Almost all of my hay hauling (of my own cut and bale as well as bought) has been in my '60 GMC 3/4 long bed step side and most of that has been 33 bales a load.
Been at it 47 years.
Never lost one on the road (knock wood), but a bunch picking up in the field. God I hate to pick 'em up and stack 'em a second time. Those have mostly been from leaving the truck in granny and working at its pace.
Both glad and sorry that is behind me.

Stake body with no stakes and 12 high we had to rope and loadbinders, front to back on the two outside rows. They owned two farms about 12 miles apart plus leased hay fields as far as 20 miles away in order to feed 400 milking head plus the dried off, calves, and heifers. I don't want to go back but I wish I could still do it. ;)

Fuck a bunch o' chaindogs. If I never see/use another one, I'll die happy enough.

Amazing Octopus is amazing...

That octopus dance needs an appropriate score.
He/she about 5 feet long.

Anything from 2001: A Space Odyssey would do.

Also sprach Zarathustra:

Start this bit, then start the octopus vid muted, and embiggened.

I gather that there is a version with the Benny Hill theme as soundtrack but I haven't been able to find it as yet.

Anyway, if you want the story, as opposed to a cheap laugh, here you are:

Better bigger. And in full HD.
