    First Job, Worst Job, Dream Job

    My first job was selling newspapers outside the AO Smith automotive parts plant in 7th and 8th grade.  Got there about 5am for the end of third shift and the beginning of first.
    Worst Job: Cleaning up a Milwaukee County Park in 9th and 10th Grade.  Learned what "trash" really meant back then.
