Scrap Lumber & Vodka

Scrap Lumber & Vodka

Had a few drinks in the back yard this past Sunday. I was staring at a stack of boards behind the shack and had an idea for some folk art to embellish my tool shed. The metal USMC seal was purchased several years ago from and adorned the front of the shed for years. This started out as a standard American Flag, but spacing the 50 stars was just too difficult after happy hour. A little bit of white spray paint and voila! I really like that it irritates my Air Force neighbor. It’s approximately 8′ x 5′ and be seen from far below the hill my house sets on. Semper Fi!

    I’m an old Marine Brat and a 13+ USAF vet and this looks dam good to me. Its made of wood and had heart and soul in it. Tell that AF puck to pack his mouth with cotton and shut up. There’s no disrespect here for dam sure. Semper Fi brother.. In Vietnam I earned the privilege of wearing the 8 pointer (as long as I cover up the EGA, w/my AF rank) and I’m still a proud Marine Brat…
