My story begins with my working for Sug Woodall for a dollar a day, draining lakes and collecting minnows at his fish hatchery. I'm not particularly proud of walking off the job the way I did but it was, as they say, an important learning experience. I thank my Dad for making me apologize for my behavior and defending my right not to work for a man for whom I had little respect. Walking out of that minnow pond cost me a dollar a day for about a month. What I learned from my Dad is priceless.
