We all know the joke: How many Belgians does it take to change a light bulb? Ans— Four, one to hold the bulb and three to turn the ladder. Whilst sitting at the reading table reading the newspaper and catching up on the Stew, we live in a quiet area of the harbour so when there is movement outdoors, it is noticed. Two blokes arrived to check the streetlights up on the walking path on top of the dike. Apparently the lamp poles were loosened back during that harsh windstorm we had. They worked on the first pole, swinging it back and forth, then dug up some sod and heeled it in at the lamp’s base. As they moved on to pole two, two more men arrived in their service kit. The one kept working, his work partner broke off to go and chat with the two new guys. So there the three standing, hands in their pockets as the fourth chap worked on. The three continued their chinwag as the worker moved on to the next lamp pole. Two of the three assumed the serious working pose with their hands on their backs. Meanwhile the real worker moved on to another pole, eventually disappearing into the little harbour park. The yellow arrow points to him under the hanging flower basket…and yes the “important” workers continued to waffle on as the fourth man just kept going. So watching this incredible scene play out we realised that we too had this joke on ourselves— How many Dutchmen does it take to secure a street light pole? Answer: Four, three to waffle and one to do the work from pole to pole.
