The swing came in today. It was on the porch when I got back from saving a dog and the grocery store.
The dog was walking down the sidewalk carrying it's leash, with no owner in site. It had a rabies tag. I called the doc's office listed, and of course it was closed, so I left a message with the service. Finally a long 15 minutes ( I was busy and had things to do.)went by and I called again. They patched me through to the office who gave me the name and number of the owner.
The owner said, "Lord.....Thanks you.....he's be done got away from me, dis mornin." (Really it was something like that.) I brought her the dog and she was very happy and told me the dog had been in jail for running away before. She just got him out of jail, week before last, along with her nephew. At that point I was ready to leave. I am sure jail for the dog was the pound, but I am not sure about the nephew. Poor little pup was very cute but reeked of cigarette smoke. Can dog's get lung cancer? Also did she know Lord actually once lived at the house? Lord Morrison that is.
Back to the swing.
- Over all I give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
- I was able to assemble the swing in under 30 minutes, well except one part.
- The finish was lacking, but I really wanted the porch swing Paprika red anyway.
- The style is nice, but it doesn't look too comfortable. Very straight back, but you do hang a swing on a little angle.
Norm would not approve!..... used the screw driver to clean this out.......
This is the bolt that would not go in. The built in metal part seemed stripped. I'll let Chris take a look this evening. To do list... moisturize those cuticles..
Note to all manufacturers. Have someone random in your company assemble your product using your instructions. Maybe someone in accounting. What is up with instructions now days?
Now... to install the hooks in the porch ceiling......and we will need a little more chain.
Don't forget about this.....we've got some good ones so far....We need your ideas.
