Putting up a new archway

On Sunday this weekend we went outside because mum wanted to put up a archway in our sitting area. The archway mum wanted to make from a old insulator pole that had been on our farm for 20 years. It was so heavy even dad couldn't lift it up so he picked it up with the tractor and put it on the chains and lifted it over the fence. The insulator that were on the poles date back to the 1960s. The pole was way to long so we had to measure it with a measuring tape and cut it, we dug two holes in the area and put the poles in then dad put the insulator on top. After we had finished the final result was great and mum planted a couple of plants around the poles and then mum had a big rose growing next to the poles where we had put them in so she got a piece of rose and tied it to the archway so it would grow over it.  But while we were putting the poles in I found a massive worm and took a photo with dads phone. Have you ever built anything?


Here is a photo of dad while he was bolting in the insulater at the top so it would be stable and hold for a long time.


Here is a picture of the big worm that I saw when we had to dig the wholes we thought it was about the size of a pencil because half of the head was in the ground.


Here is a picture of the final result and we added a sign and nailed it up. It say Beware cables below so it would look vintage.

    Great idea for a post and I enjoyed seeing the photographs that helped show the story of what was created. How long was the worm? It was kind of hard to tell by just viewing the photograph - also we've talked before about the margins and the photographs - something to think about.
