Lacey hangin out
This is what we did, everywhere, all the time
I was a lineman once.
In fact I taught my father when he was fifty four to climb. He did as good as the young guys but was just a tad more deliberate.
That picture was taken in a land far far away in 1967. In 1968 I graduated from lineman to cable splicer, same land far far away.
If you've ever been around telco guys you'll see they wear those scissors. Most of them call them "snips". But they're scissors. They also like to cut pennies to show how strong the snips are.
One day I found I could cut quarters with mine. All it took was seeing a lineman do it. Anything a lineman can do..................
