If you lived during the Wild West years (mid 1800's???)....what job would you have that somewhat corresponds with the job you have now? Or would you be better suited for another job entirely?

I would live in a teepee and take care of the horses. And I would walk in a sea of grass. Doesn't correspond with my job now, but I'm looking into becoming a veterinary tech. (animal nurse).

My guess I’d be a blacksmith. I like working with HOT things and making items of use. Pickup up after the horses ,,,,, now that’s another job. I got’a hire a stableboy for that.

Hmmm.. let's see, they didn't have computers, or airplanes back then, so I guess I'll have to pick something with guns..

Probably either a gun-smith, or somebody in law-enforcement, and since I am a man of God, I'll also be a preacher at a church.

A saloon girl!

Not many woman bookkeepers back then so I'll take the store clerk.

I was thinking the same, a saloon girl server, serving warm drinks since they didnt have refrigeration back then. Oh wait, maybe the piano player at a saloon???
