I built this little pedestal bench on my property a couple of months ago, on a small creek and next to a crop field. A nice place to play banjo. After returning from an extended motorcycle trip, I walked back to the site and was stunned to see my little bench about 60 yds. In the soy bean field. Cynically, I thought someone was messing with me; realistically, we had a heck of a rain. Still in one piece, I replanted the bench.
A new lesson for an old dog. Sink it deeper, move to higher ground, or just play banjo and hope the "creek don't rise"

Nice Sonny! Hope your bench stays planted now.

Very nice Sonny. Is that a Bell banjo you are playing? you still plan to be at Appomattox?

Hey Scott, it's a Jay Moschella banjo. I do have one of Terry's, it's a grain painted Boucher. I'm looking forward to Appomattox and have room in the A frame if anyone needs shelter.

Nice work Sonny.  What a lovely spot to play, too!    :)
