Granite Hand Installation

It finally quit raining long enough to allow me to install my granite hand sculpture in Cave Hill Cemetery.
 Cave Hill Monument Company had supplied the lettered base.  Here, they're drilling 2 holes for the 3/4" x 6" stainless steel pins.
 All of these pictures (except for the last one) were taken by Meg.  I watch as they clean out the holes with pressurized air.
 We did a dry run to make sure it fit exactly right.  We used Meg's crane truck for the delivery and installation.
 Then, Meg swiveled the sculpture out of the way so that Billy could apply the epoxy.
 We set the piece.  (More hands make for light work...)
 ...and this is the final monument in Cave Hill.  I enjoyed this project from beginning to end.
Meanwhile, back home...Skidoo is right on Meg's heels as she puts out goodies for the wildlife.
