Dad tells me that when he was a kid, this was one of the jobs he did.
The story went that when he got paid, he took his cheque home to Grandma and she'd decide how much of it he could keep. Everyone worked in their family, and everyone paid in to keep it going. The story has it that Grandma was always getting in trouble with Grampa because she was soft and let the boys keep too much of their earnings.
I think things worked out differently with the Great Depression between Canada and the US. From bits and snippets it seems to me that the USA recovered from the depression much faster than Canada did. It would make sense, given our penchant for liberalism and socialism.
The story was that Pop became a legendary bowler on par with Fred Flintsone. The pin monkeys all hated him with a passion because he eventually got so good that he could knock over the pins with a dirty look.
I tell no lies. Believe it or else! Have a good Thursday.
