the hired man

His first job, at 12, was as a paper boy at the West Plains Daily Quill, when Frank Martin was the editor and publisher. Barry claimed to be 13, the minimum age for employment, and no one asked for ID.  He recently picked up a few hours haying for the Martins and marvels,  "I never thought I'd be working for Frank Martin again 40 years later."
