Time fly’s when you are having fun. After work today, I dropped Kyle off at soccer practice and then headed home. His friend Mike is going to have his dad pick them up from practice later. I make a couple of frozen tacos and taquitos for dinner and then proceeded to do some more work around the house. I am really neglecting my workouts and exercise routine.
The TV stand has to get built, and the flat packed 150lb box with copious amounts of hardware is awaiting and almost daring me to try and solve the puzzle. I intend to at least make a dent tonight so forget about watching TV.
After sorting thru all the boards, and trim, and wrap my head around the letters and numbers of the parts, I dive in. No cursing, no pain, no frustration….I have built these Sauder furniture kits before, and they seem to be getting, dare I say, easier.
This day in history “US FLAG RAISED AT IWO JIMA” During the bloody Battle for Iwo Jima, U.S. Marines from the 3rd Platoon, E Company, 2nd Battalion, 28th Regiment of the 5th Division take the crest of Mount Suribachi, the island's highest peak and most strategic position, and raise the U.S. flag. Marine photographer Louis Lowery was with them and recorded the event. American soldiers fighting for control of Suribachi's slopes cheered the raising of the flag, and several hours later more Marines headed up to the crest with a larger flag. Joe Rosenthal, a photographer with the Associated Press, met them along the way and recorded the raising of the second flag along with a Marine still photographer and a motion-picture cameraman.”
After reading this, it makes me feel patriotic. I keep saying I prefer to buy American made goods and services. Today, I am proud to say that my Sauder TV Stand is manufactured at Sauder Woodworking Company in Archbold, Ohio.
Most of the TV Stand is complete. Just have to assemble the drawers and place the shelves. Made In America.
