These 3 pics. are my daughter Leah who works in no. dakota, and has a man-type job in Minot.
she works for an excavating company, uses water hoses under great pressure, and a vacume also, cleans off trucks and other jobs. she is full of mud all the time, has layers of clothes on, her pants are so full of oil that they are now waterproof. she has found muscles she didn't know she had. safety glasses, inner clothes, outer clothes, big boots.....she thought she was working alongside a man, and found out it was another woman when they shed the outer clothing. she has found out how to define a woman in all the clothes by the way they stand, they put their hands on their hips.
