It's up! Not quite finished, though. Our new Scottsboro sign.
Keith finessed the tractor into position, with tiny moves forward and back, since he was wedged between the posts and a construction trailer on the property. The two Jims, Zach, Odle, Kathleen and I provided variably useful feedback, and it first looked as though, due to the slope, the tractor would not be able to lift the crosspiece quite high enough. More tilting, adjusting, bringing the load down to rotate the log so the letters would be vertical. And then, in the 5 minutes while I was gone to fetch the peavey, there it was, settled carefully twelve feet up.
Odle climbed up into the basket, there was a bit more lifting and shims tucked behind the left end, someone tossed up the mallet and Odle drove in the spikes.
Now DiAnne has to paint our logo and the signboard with moveable letters mounted in place, and--voila, there it is.
