That is one of the funnyest, most relevant, and ultimately sobering piece of 
prose I have heard in a while, I laughed out loud until I thought about it for 
a few more seconds!  

As we age, memory lapses seem to be a reality for many of us, and certainly 
gives impetus toward establishing a routine for tower work in order to not 
forget something critical.  I'm thinking a laminated checklist of all safety 
gear and preps at the tower base, at least then the worst that occurs at height 
should be a forgotten tool.
