Landscaping lead me to my next job, one to provide income during the winter months. It was to clean out vacant houses. That was perhaps the hardest, filthiest work I’ve ever done. You don’t want to know some of the conditions me and my coworkers had to work in at times. My coworkers by the way, were all American. I guess we didn’t get the memo that this sort of work could only be done by migrants or illegal immigrants.
