Planting our Flag
Well, my dad gave me an idea about using diagonally laid wooden furring strips for the background of our sign, something I've been trying to create for a while now... and since he's been right about other things (once or twice!) in the past, I took his advice... Then I cut out some letters...
And hung it with the help of some great friends, who donated their Saturday to help us throw our Grand Opening celebration!
Though the doubters were many in the beginning when I would describe my vision for the sign, in the end I think it turned out great. We've officially planted our flag in St. Louis! For, as the Arch is to Mankind, so our humble sign is a manifestation of our own Indomitable Spirit. So whenever you're driving by and you see it, stop in and say hi!
