Well this has been a long time coming. I have wanted a flag pole for about 7 years now. Our neighbor, Chuck, said not to worry he would make me one! well he is a very busy man. But a month ago him and Don started on my flag pole. They welded, sanded, painted, welded some more and repainted more. and now thanks to Don(my husband) look at this beautiful flag pole in our yard. Don raised our flag this morning. It is beautiful. Now I am going to make a flower bed around it and plant some mums in it for fall. I thought a scarecrow in there would be nice too.
