  • 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 tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

                    I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

                    Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves...
