Every five years PG&E (pacific gas and electric) comes by and hoses down the insulators to keep a clean contact for the wires. Every single pole has these ceramic insulators that cradle the wires. Look out your window at the cross arm at the top of the pole and you will see them, they look like little UFO’s. When I was little my father walked the railroad tracks by our house and collected the old ones that were used for the decomissioned telegraph lines. He then sold them at the flea market.

These are old glass insulators like my Dad had. Nowadays they are made of ceramic.


  1. Hmm. These look like something else.

  3. ^That’s almost an oxymoron. But yes, they do look rather sexual.
