Our new wine space came with an interesting sign post out front. It has two spaces for possible signage. From the ground, 20 feet below, it looked like a wine barrel might fit perfectly in the upper spot. As it happened, Winegirl Angela was working on painting some old barrels. We knew that getting the 100 pound barrel up in the air might be a little tricky as would keeping it up there.
The crew gathered together chain, steel pipe, nuts and bolts and brackets. We checked the sketches, then crumpled them up. We checked the wind, then ignored the results and dragged the barrel up and onto the signpost with the Jeepster.
I’m scared of falling from signpoles, so Richard climbed around like a natural lemur to check the level and tighten the screws. It held steady.
In the end, all we needed was the WineGirl and her muscles. The main “The Blending Room” placard is in the works to be strapped up there next.
