Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 18th February, 2020)
Reaching out into the Open
I am a linesman for the County and I drive the main road,
Searching In the Sun for another overload,
I hear you singing in the wire, I can hear you through the whine,
And the Wichita Linesman is still on the line....
What a job!
Good move to have half-hidden that lamp post, Mick - thinkin' on the go what.
Veronica,that's the song of my favorite singer of all time..as for that job..Id be terrified.
Great drinking song...often mis-sung
'I'm the linesman at Notts County
and I've been to Maine Road..
Good photo Mick....and a good play with words !
Ladies, I loved Glen Campbells songs too !
Crazy still using wires when they could be using digital radio. The antenna's on lampposts could be set up to do the job.
I am always amused when I see a lineman at the top of a lamppost
or a pylon. Why is he wearing a
hard hat ? The only thing likely
to land on his head is bird muck
or the landing gear of an aircraft.
Elf & Safety Eh ?
Veronica. One of the most misquoted lines in music. It's Lineman, not Linesman. Still a cracking song !! One of my all time favourites as well.
It's the first thing I thought when I saw the photo Maureen. x
he can see mick's House from there.
I loved Glen Campbell and bless him,he didn't even know what a guitar was at the end,.so sad...Veronica,since seeing your comment the song has been on my mind all day.
They wear a hard hat, Ray, in case they fall and land on their head.
Yes,Maureen and Veronica couldn't agree more about the song,so heartfelt,and Glen Campbell, what a brilliant musician.I too would be beyond terrified,I hate heights.
Bet it's cold and windy up there.
Its not just our house he will see from up there, he can also see in the back gardens of the houses and catch topless woman topping up there fake tans
Loved Glen Campbell's "Dreams of The Everyday Housewife". Could have been any of us, Maureen, Helen, Elizabeth, Veronica. xx
Hard hats aren't worn 'in case they fall and land on their head'. They are protection against something falling on your head or striking your head against something.
Irene,if you go on utube and type his name to listen to "Jesus and me"it's a great song,not really religious,just a brilliant song.
Thanks Maureen. Will do. xx
I was a linesman when I did my national service so I guess I was a linesman for the country !
How boring mick
And I thought the hard hat was to protect the Lineman from any passengers falling out of the Benidorm to Ringway charter flight!
You know what they're like after a few duty frees ! ;-)
Topless women and tans - in this weather, Mick?
Looks like Mick's climbed up the pole
with his camera and telescopic lens
you little Shevvy voyeur
