      These are so cool! That's the MOST insulators I've seen in one place. We have a couple around our house that belonged to my wife's dad. Great post!!!!

      Beautiful in every way. I love it that you have created an interesting outdoor collection for anyone passing by to enjoy. The lighted insulators are especially enjoyable. :-)

      Hope there is no naughty kids with BB guns around. Very nice collection...

      I'd SO love to have that pole and its crossbars to display somewhere around here, though my own collection of glass insulators isn't nearly so worthy of such a perfect thing to display them on...

      Thanks scotto363 There are a lot more plus I lost a bunch in the Jones fire we use to walk the old lines to find them and bought quite a few
      Thank you watchsearcher for the nice comment I live at the end of a road not much traffic but people do seem to like it
      No worries Dave2no1 it would take a heck of a BB gun to reach these from the road
      Thanks AnythingObscure the pole is one that was on my property that got burned in the Jones fire the long cross bar I found fishing the upper Sacramento river had all the pins in it and yep packed it out the lower crossbar a fellow collector gave me
      Thanks for the loves

      I want a pole and cross bars too. So far I have one crossbar.
    7. OLECODY OLECODY, 7 months ago
      Fortapache you have some good insulators not that hard to find a pole or just improvise you can make the crossbar if you get one together be sure to post it

      Hi Bill!
      So glad to see you posting again. My Dad did the same thing with insulators, had them everywhere, even on top of the grape arbor! Just so you know, we all see our pictures on different venues especially Pinterest. I will look up a piece of jewelry, and then have a double take..hey, that’s mine! Yeah, it kinda bugs, but you can also view it as a compliment that they find your items/ posts interesting. I too, am skeptical, about the coming year. All I can think about are the families that are struggling, and the children that are going hungry. Maybe that’s why I have let up on the jewelry buying. Feel spoiled and selfish. My grandsons haven’t seen the inside of a classroom all year! So far, all in my family have been healthy throughout this “pandemic”. My poor Daughter and Son in Law have to be tested everyday!, as they work in a State Hospital. Ok, I have talked your ear off enough, just so glad to have you back!
      Merry Christmas Bill! Oh, pray for rain!

      Thanks Eileen my mom really liked her insulators she also had them on their grape arbor and my pop made a rail along their garden fence to put them on we are pert near related lol It was the artifact post that worried me the way things are today everybody being so sensitive I just started deleting couldn`t stop lol. Look up the word picnic snowflakes find it offensive LMAO. Glad you and your family are doing good are your daughter and son inlaw gonna get the shot? These are certainly some troubling times
      Dont pray to hard today I gotta put a motor in my bobcat please, but pray like the dickens tomorrow I will be
      Merry Christmas and a very Happier New Year

      Awesome collection !!

      Oh, now I completely understand about your posts. “ that once belonged to blah blah blah , 2000 years ago, put it back” RIDICULOUS! Especially if it’s been in your family for decades upon decades. Too many uptight people with nothing to do. I got wind somewhere they were going to ban Margaret Michell’s masterpiece “Gone With the Wind”. I immediately purchased it, ( maybe a marketing ploy but I doubt it). Everyone wants to erase history.
      Anyhoo, it does seem we are “pert near related”, only you kept your ranch and I sold mine.
      I miss it so, it was the kids that asked me to, too much work for me, ( but I loved it) Oh well, gotta look forward. Answering your question about my jewelry, I wear it nearly everyday!
      It doesn’t go in a box marked “previous posts”. LOL It is to wear and enjoy!

      I had a thread less one but sold it for next to nothing only to find out later that it was very collectable and worth more then the $20 I got for it .
    13. OLECODY OLECODY, 7 months ago
      Eileen why in the world would they ban Gone With the Wind people are way to sensitive getting ridiculous the word police would like us to stop using words like (picnic) and oh so many more
      We sold our folks place a few years ago I bought this place after my divorce in 92
      Glad to hear you wear your jewellery you got some very nice things
    14. OLECODY OLECODY, 7 months ago
      TKR yep might of sold it a little cheap those threadless insulators bring pretty good money depending on the CD color rarity I have one a threadless confederate egg I paid 300 for
