Now that’s hillbilly engineering right there…

The g’parents recently put up a new back deck, the problem was that you couldn’t sit out there with the sun shining b’cuz it was HOT!! So, the guys decided to erect a tarp.

We had a lot of fun watching them put it up too. Those poles, one of which you see a ladder leaning on below, were small trees that they cut down and bolted to the railing. They then tied the tarp on with rope at the corners.

Decided that maybe the flag should drape across, but that didn’t work out too well.

So here it is finished. It works great though. We spent the rest of our trip sitting up there under it.
