Men never fully grow up.
It seems as if there remains inside of each man a little boy.
I have observed through my many years of building unique homes that men love to climb. It’s just part of their nature. Like monkeys, they are.
I’ve got tons of photos similar to this one. Photos that I find that I’m not sure what the crewman is doing, but certainly he is hanging on… and clearly busy.
It doesn’t matter if we were building a timber frame, or if it was a log cabin. Regardless of the project, there are photos throughout my photo box of men hanging onto various timbered structures.
Now keep in mind, that this activity was not brought about because a ladder was unavailable… I always kept an ample supply on site. And I must confess that I was not immune to the “call to climb”… boy, I could tell you some stories in that regard. lol
It is a shame that our world today supplies little opportunity for men to climb as they once did when they were little boys… but I am here to bear witness, that if given the opportunity, eventually all men, will climb.
I’ve also noticed that they smile more broadly when they do.
