More About That Picture

Posted by len on October 13th, 2006

In the last post, Sue included a picture of some idiot on a ladder that was itself supported by a raised tractor. I felt I should discuss that photo a bit. That is indeed me. On the farm in Iowa a few days ago, Sue’s father Lawrence needed some help getting a chain around one of the thick branches so he could control the direction the tree would fall when he cuts it down in a few weeks. Before he dreamed up the tractor idea he had the ladder fully extended to reach the 24 foot high branch base. I gotta say that ladder was wobbly like me at the R&H Christmas party. I climbed up it 5 feet and got a really sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Right after seeing me turn white is when Lawrence suggested the tractor concept which, at first, seemed like a less death-defying prospect. Can’t imagine now why I had that thought given the experience of holding a 15 foot ladder while being raised in the loader of his tractor about 10 feet and THEN needing to climb the ladder. In the end the job was done and I survived. Now I feel stronger and more assured that after nuclear winter rains down upon us and some crazy tractor+ladder contraption is the only means for survival in the Mad-Max-post-apocalyptic wasteland, I shall reign as king!!

    Len,

    You’re fucking crazy man. That’s why America mourns its loss and the rest of the world waits on baited breath for your arrival.
