I was a paint maker. Messy, dusty, smelly, but it was good. I mean, thinking back now with the health and safety we’ve got now; I mean, we used to make lead based paint and there’s like bags of lead powder, and they’d give us a little face-mask and a pint of milk. I mean, there was a forty-five gallon barrel with formaldehyde!
