Flagpole: arrived!

Flagpole: arrived!  UPS Freight delivered my flagpole on Monday morning, and I've been busy putting it together (it's a kit, of course) and getting it ready to be erected.  This afternoon Randy B. (who lives just north of me) will drive his loader down here.  It can raise 30' high, so it should make short work of getting the flagpole up.  After that, all we have to do is pour some sand around it (while making sure it's standing straight up!), do a little sealing with silicone caulking, and then it's ready to go.  The crummy photo at right shows the bottom section of the pole with one end near the concrete foundation, and the other section still in its tube on the left.  The logs on the lawn are holding the pole up off the grass, which apparently can permanently stain the aluminum of the flagpole...
