Lyle, the cables anchor utility poles. I thought phone poles were pretty much the same all over, but in the Midwest and beyond I frequently saw utility setups where two poles were place ten or twenty feet apart, with a crossbar running between them. Then they usually have lots of these anchor cables, which I imagine is because it's windy out there and these structures catch the wind more than a single pole with a couple of crossbars four or five feet wide. I don't remember if I've got any interesting pictures where one of these things is included.

Every now and then, you post a frame that I think could have been mine ...

Which gives me some comfort.

Mark, those doors are nice, but the deer are decidedly flippy...
