Out on a walk recently, I came across these engineers putting up new telephone lines and/or poles. It was a nostalgic sight for me, as my father was a telephone engineer and, in his working life, did his fair share of climbing poles. Like so many things in modern life, it looks possible that the job is these days 'contracted out', as I could see no evidence of BT branding on the vans.

Then I found myself humming 'Wichita Lineman'... ha! I haven't thought of that song in a long time.


  1. Now you've got me singing that song too. It's driving me up the pole !

    1. Haha, love the pun. Yes, it's still in my head too! It's a very persistent ear worm.

  2. I'd better not Youtube that tune, if it's an earworm!

  3. You never see someone climbing a pole here anymore.
