Look who finally made it out on to the deck! That is the wood carved eagle we bought in Minnesota in June. His perch was almost finished. Yesterday Builder Bob finished up the perch and it was time to screw bolts into the bottom of our eagle. He is heavy but we wanted to make sure the winds wouldn’t blow him over.
He looks pretty good on his perch and we are calling our American Eagle…Iggy.
As people drove by today they were getting a kick out of seeing him. I’m going to try and get a better photo tomorrow……my other photos didn’t turn out to well.
We also saw this beautiful boat coming up the Mississippi around supper time. How ironic that is called the American Eagle! Beautiful boat! This is the third time in the last month that it has gone by our house. Last week we heard it was coming and everyone in the neighborhood was watching for it but……it came by around 9:30 in the dark just like the first time.
This was one of the first pictures I took as it was just coming past our tree. People were even stopping so they could take pictures.
Can’t have a post without fabric…..I bought a new layer cake with a gift certificate I won from Gotcha Covered Quilting. The service was great and fast!
