No, you misunderstand.
You said: "nobody to write to"...
I said: "note to self".
In other words, "take matters into your own hand".
A simple play on words.
Aw, hell... nevermind.
I got it Doc and that was funny. Lately I seem a bit more confused about life and don't want to offend by accident. I was in my mid twenties when I worked for that guy and he was a character. Funny how I'm able to relate to a lot of his old stories now that I'm older.
One quick story. When I first worked in his gang three of us linemen were sent to replace a telephone pole that had been hit by a car. He assured us it was not broken below grade. He said he checked it and we would not have to waste our time, just get it stable with the truck boom and place a new pole right next to it. Well, we took his word which was a mistake, with one guy up in a bucket, I extended the boom and grabbed the top of the pole with the claws. Sure enough the pole snapped at the broken base and headed for the street. We all dove for cover, and the pole bounced about five to ten feet from hitting the ground with the cables offering support. We were angry and shaken but it made for a funny story later on. No casualties.Frank
