  1. A Farmer

    I would also put my money on lime. Luddite Photo Day is a pretty good reminder to me that if farm work were as hard today as it was back in then, I would’ve moved to town and gotten a job(well, I still have a town job). Driving a tractor or combine a few weeks in the spring and fall and baling hay a few evenings a year is a lot different than working sunup to sundown most of the year.
