After years of scrounging crossarms, hardware, brackets and a pole I finally planted this in my back yard a few months back. I'd been threatening to do this for some time but I don't think anyone took me seriously. They just kind of laughed it off....you know, the rantings of a mad man. Well, I showed them. The look on my wifes face when she got home from work was priceless. My kids and friends look at me kind of funny now even though I've explained and shown them there's lots of us out there. Oh well, my dog and the backyard birds seem to appeciate my efforts. And I like it, too.
