  • 9/11 Tribute Flag

    10 years ago a group of people tried to put up a tribute flag on the hillside using caulk but they were stopped halfway through and was sited for trespassing and for using caulk on grazing land..
    when the media reported on the unfinished flag the community was in a up roar but there was nothing that could be done..
    so for the next couple months Mrs.Trout and I watched the rain wash away the unfinished flag...

    today we watched a group of people lay out another flag on the same hillside.
    the cool part is that I can see it through my shop window, I got to watch the progress of the flag while I was cutting parts for my catch'n air project.
    Mrs.Trout took these pictures from our front porch...

      they carried it up the hill in rolls so it must be some kind of plastic or tarp. those stars are to perfect.
      It took some planning that's for sure and I'm sure they had permission because it took them a good 13 hours to complete..
      I bet they are tired from standing and sitting on that hillside all day..

      it looks great and were honored to have the great view of it..

        Very nice! Will it stay there for awhile do you think? Or did they unassemble it before they left?

                  That is so neat Trout. They could make it out of painted rocks, like the names of towns that we see along the highways. Would be quite a job though. I don't think I could do it. Thanks for showing us.

                    I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                    Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                    He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

                    We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
