Subject: RE: Coffee, music



North End I-15
Never drank coffee till I was 19 years old . Was working back in East Grand Forks Mn. building a Potato warehouse.
Every morning the Farmers wife would bring out a 5 gallon pail with Thermos full of coffee and cookies. Afternoon it was sandwiches and coffee.
I was working for the contractor so I just kept on working thinking it was for the farm help.
The Contractor set me down and said it was not polite to not stop working and drink coffee.
So I guess to keep the boss happy I started drinking coffee.
I was being paid double the wages the farm workers were so thought I had to earn it.
They were making 1$ an hour , I was making 2$ . Sure a difference in wages between Montana and the Red River Valley in 1960. I was being paid on Montana scale. Was told not to tell what I was making per hour. We worked 12 plus hour days .

Just bought a Kurig , terrible coffee samples that came with it.
