Well that was an interesting afternoon...  :curse:

Our task today was to cut the pole down to the right length and wire up the lantern.  :wndr:

Somebody measured the length to be cut off incorrectly though, and we will have to cut more off at the next attempt.  :mrg:

It could have been worse though, we might have cut too much off.  :(

I think I should run away and hide now.  :-[

How can you mix up a candy and a centimeter? :mrg: If you used inches this whole problem would have been avoided. ::) :lol:.

I grew up using them when I helped daddy with things that he was doing.  :)  It used to drive my woodwork teacher mad when I refused to use those nasty new fangled metric things...  :mrg:

We've done it.!!!  ;D

Gary is standing up on his pole and we're just waiting for the sand/rock salt mix to set before we move him to his final position.  ;D
