What do you want to be when you grow up?

That is the question we ask our boys every so often. They both always give the same answer: The oldest used to say he wanted to be an ambulance man, now his answer has progressed to a paramedic. The middle punk has always said he wants to be a power line man, just like his Dad. Not a lineman, but a Power Line Man... emphasis on the man. It is so cute to listen to him. Every time we drive by a substation he always yells out "That's where Dad works". I have taken our boys to see their Dad at work lots of times. They have even seen helicopters at work with the linemen.

Well, enough about that. All this thinking about my middle punk being a lineman, oh sorry, a Power Line Man has got me thinking about this video on YouTube. Strange how this is something that would have us screeming in our nightmares and yet for these guys it's second nature. The sound is a little quiet so you'll need to turn your sound up a bit probably.
