Changing Light Bulbs

This month has been extraordinarily busy for us as we have been preparing the ranch for a big cattle round-up and BBQ. To brighten Vic's day, Sophia and I went looking for him to let him know we had lunch ready.  As I came around the curved driveway I saw the backhoe right away. It wasn't until I looked up, toward the tree-tops, that I saw my husband [900 feet] in the air! My heart sank and jaw dropped at what he done to devise a way to get up the power pole and change two giant light bulbs!


I proceeded to talk to him...only in my head, so that I didn't startle him. 


What I wanted to do was...SCREAM!  "GET DOWN FROM THERE!" 
"Are You Crazy?"




Here, we see a normal 14 foot ladder leaning on a ROUND power pole, [not very safe, I might add] waiting for its bulbs to be changed.




Next, we see a 14' ladder balanced inside a backhoe scoop with a husband perched on top, in order to get to the top of a 30' power pole!


Wife is at ground level....freaking out!





OK are we serious here?
No safety equipment, you are giving me a heart attach!




Finally he's coming down from that dangerous situation.




After a quick discussion on why he should not have done that, he nodded and completely ignored me!


I agree he got the job done but... WHAT IF?

All I have to say is wow...I would be freaking out too! I showed Bob the picture, and he said "that's very smart" -- oh boy, men :)
I can only imagine the amount of time, $, frustration & love that has been put into this event so far. We are very excited to participate in such an event at the ranch, and want to thank you in advance for everything you guys have put into getting things ready.

Cheers, N

Reminds me of the time Gabe used the bed of the Ranger to prop the ladder up to get on the roof to hang Christmas lights. The best part is when he told his friend, "here, hold my beer" before he got on the unstable ladder. Awesome...
