Here's a little chang-er-roo we did at the Early household recently. Our house came with the holder for a flag over our front porch. We were super excited about not having to buy the hardware and just picking up a flag and a pole for the 4th this year. we headed to the garden section at Lowes and the only post + flag combo we could find included the hardware. There was no getting around buying them seperately either. Dang. Ok, so we'll have a spare set should be need it. So off home we went with smiles on our faces with a project to do when we got there. It was like Christmas in July. It was a new decoration for the front of our house that everyone would see. Excited I tell you (we really don't live exciting lives do we?) After installing it we were really disappointed when we hung it and instead of our flag saluting us, it just kinda hung there. Flat. It looked like our house had grown an appendage. See? Not the flattering, attentive flag we were looking for. Double-Dang.
So it stayed like this for a few weeks (ok ok, about a month) before we decided to do something about it. One day John had had enough of it and luckily for us, we had kept the hardware kit from our purchase (and when I say kept, I mean it sat on our dryer for a month). Out comes the drill, oh happy drill, how I love you.
And after a little help from the iphone,
Because we wouldn't want a crooked flag.
Drum Roll Please...
Ta Da! We finally have our flag. Oh the joy of little the little things.
