Those who grew-up in
Morris County, NJ are probably familiar with the AT&T training facility in
Chester that truly is a sght to see. The facility actually treats the logs
used in making telephone poles with the preservative compound to make them
weather and pest proof. Now, imagine a field of these poles standing
upright in unseen vats so that their tops are just a few feet above ground.
I remember being told by my folks that that was where telephone poles were
born, and the little ones were "just babies that would grow up to be big and
strong like their parents."
It was always a neat place to drive past with your kids to tell them of the
"urban legend" about where telephone poles came from.
A good friend who grew up in the area told me about the time his now
grown-up son was driving by the area and matter-of-factly explained to his
girlfriend about the birthplace of telephone poles and other myths
which he actually believed "because his dad told him so."
You could imagine the look on that girl's
face when she realized that her boyfriend was not kidding...he meant and
believed every word of it.
And if you don't believe it..go ask the Easter Bunny!. :)
