  4. How to fly your colors?

    If for display and not for height try a ground spike (angle iron) and tube fabricated by local welder. Add a pair of small foot tabs to help set the spike in the soil. Ikea had some nice one piece curtain rod with end caps at 7- 8' or try a lumber yard for closet poles of suitable diameter and length for your flag I used the curtain rod painted black and gold leafed the finial, brass eye screws attach the 3x5 roger.

    The past two days have been cooling off a bit so I've been wearing my new dark gray w/green stripe Monmouth cap, a custom order by KK. madPete - Yes, it becomes an obsession. Another that I ordered at the same time as the gray/green Monmouth was a Whaler with wool from a local Historical Farm-Museum. The wool was from their Cotswold sheep and dyed with marigolds into a very pale yellow color... turned out great. Jas. Hook

    Not hard... she does nice work. Even M'lady enjoys 'em in His/Hers models. Hers have an more obscure loop knited into the backs. Fashionable enough to have been seen on NYC's 5 Ave, says I. Contrary to KK's suggestion of a thrum on 5 th would start a new fashion statement, the Captain lacks the fortitude for that. Jas. Hook
