Riverboat Bench Installation

Monday, October the 26th was the day that was scheduled for the removal of our sculptures from Yew Dell Gardens.  We were also going to deliver and install the Riverboat Bench that sold during the show.
 The fall colors were at full peak, making it a beautiful and enjoyable drive up and back.
 Once loaded, we left Yew Dell Gardens and headed toward Lagrange.
 Dereck Sheroan (our favorite crane operator) had loaded us up at Yew Dell with the 23 ton crane truck.  He followed us over to the future home for the bench.
 I drilled a couple holes to pin the sculpture to the footer while Dereck set up his crane.
 Eric and I watch as Dereck brings the sculpture toward the footer.
 One of the hardest parts is getting the rigging out from under the piece.  I was glad for the extra pairs of hands.
 The functional sculpture is in its new home among the roses.  Nothing to do now but pick up the installation supplies and go enjoy a GREAT lunch at Bully BBQ, which is located right across from Oldham County High School.
