You betcha. The other guys who did hard work were the short, stocky guys who humped feed sacks at the grain mills.

One time I was at a rural electric co-op and was demonstrating a machine that weighed about 600 pounds. When it came time to put it back in the truck, two workers volunteered to do it since I was obviously a little small. They damn near threw it through the front of the truck. BIG BUCKS they were. Wasn’t nothing but a thing, as we say.

Heh. I remember that, too. I suppose they have forklifts these days. And it's still hard work.
