Definitely Kewpie worthy!

How long did you hang around after the spectators arrived to admire your work?

I don't often bare my soul, it's ugly and tends to frighten people.

Well done, indeed! The faux trunnions are especially praiseworthy for their innovative design and superb craftsmanship. Sure hope they anchor that carriage to the ground to discourage some idiot from pulling up and towing it away behind a truck, just for spite.

The cannon, which was previously thought to weigh 18 pounds, actually weighs 16 pounds, according to experts who helped restore the cannon. And yes, it's blue.--NEWS4SA


And to think that people rely on these morons for accurate news.

After moving my truck and trailer out of the way, we hung around about 2 hours looking at things there.
The trunnion collar worked exactly as planned.
The forklift was big enough.
And yes, news reporters are generally idiots when it comes to facts.


Double D, thanks for the Kewpie! It has a place of honor on my Kewpie shelf.

The only way to top this is to build "Saint Peter's Gates".
Not really ready to deliver them yet though.

The rain certainly is an issue but the San Antonio sun will beat on this thing pretty hard. There is a plan to move it into a new building when it gets built but that will be years. I told them to be sure to have a door that is bigger than 91" wide or it won't fit inside.
