When we found out Grandpa was going to have another room, I was very excited to fix it up any way he wanted it.
Unfortunately, I only got to hammer in 5 nails and use a bunch of sticky tack.
When I put the first picture where he wanted it, I stayed up against the wall and melodramatically refused to move until Grandpa was sure it was straight.
Grandpa laughed and had me adjust it just once. After that, he laughed again and said, "I'm not going to check if it's straight anymore." And he didn't. Everything else I put up was "just fine." That is until I walked into the room later, turned the corner, and nearly fell over because the John Deere sign was so crooked. I went ahead and fixed it - only needed to move and rehammer the right nail about 3 times...or was it 5? Ended up with a cozy niche in the wall....Have you seen The Shawshank Redemption? Yeah. Hopefully Grandpa will outlive me. Or Dad. Just as long as the sign stays where it is until then.
Grandpa wants to play an April Fool's joke on Dad this Friday. Maybe I'll give Grandpa the power tools...
