Hi everyone,

Granddaddy liked the tar manufacturing industry and his job was called pulling tar.

Granddaddy made certain he earned a thousand dollars a year by filling several barrels with tar each day. Pulling bark was hard work, but Granddaddy stayed the course. Since pulling bark did not pay enough for him to buy a farm and a house large enough for Grand Mama and his children, he looked around for another way to earn money.

When Granddaddy looked for another job, he had already taught you and me, that hard work should reap high productivity and good income.
