Letters to the Editor
Reprinted from "INSULATORS - Crown Jewels of the Wire", August 1982, page 25
I found an ad for your magazine at a bottle show
last September. I enjoy it very much. Your last edition was best for me so far.
Enclosed is a snapshot of my car with hood ornament. I had an idea during the
fall of '81. I drilled a small hole in the hood of my car. From underneath I
inserted a metal screw from 1" to 1-1/2" long. On top of the hood I
put a wooden peg from a crossarm, and screwed it to the wood screw. I then
placed an insulator on it. This is my hood ornament.
I can change it at any
time. Of course when I park my car away from home, I remove the insulator and
put it in the car.
I've worked for New York Telephone for 25 years as a lineman.
some of the old timers tell me where they buried hundreds of purple insulators.
someday I'll get a map from them, take them along, and dig the glass up.
East Amherst, New York
