The suspense was just too much. The waiting to hear whether that fine man, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, was going to be confirmed to the Supreme Court … or not. He was finally at 50 to 48, or so I’ve heard. But we didn’t know that this morning. To ease the tension, we hopped in the ‘cage’ (car) and went for a jaunt around the county.
It’s been a lovely day. A little dry, but that’s OK. I like cloudy days. Makes it more interesting, but that was the only thing interesting until we turned onto our dirt road.
What is it? It’s the “aliens” again. lol Just kidding. It’s the high tension lines power company guys, I think they’re private contractors, that travel around from State to State performing maintenance work so I can sit here in comfort and have my electricity. At my former blog, I blogged about them landing at the Church yard next door many years ago, but have lost that link. Sorry. What they do is the pilot holds the helicopter still while one of the men shimmies down to the high tension line and does whatever to make sure everything is still humming along. There’s a ground wire with a hook (first photo) that trails along below the ‘copter for the shimmie guy to hook onto the power line so he doesn’t get shocked. Talk about tension! They’re sure familiar with it, aren’t they?! I don’t know if they’re brave or crazy but am thankful that there are men who can do this kind of work. God bless them.
That’s been our day. Hope yours was happy and blessed also.

I think we all need to be more like the flowers for one day out of the week. 🙂
