Her name is Olivia Bea and she is here.
The blind is never closed but I had to close it to shut out some light so I could get a picture. I can see out and see deer and turkey and Cat and chickens and squirrels and whatever else passes through!
Unfortunately, even though the sellers did an amazing job of packing her up securely with a sturdy box inside a box and the wheel attached to a wooden frame, wrapped in bubble wrap and plastic, UPS still managed to send her on a rough ride.
What part of “Fragile! Handle With Care” did they not see? There’s also a huge hole in the bottom that went through both boxes.
The wheel arrived with one foot disconneted, which Vince put back together but apparently the main frame is out of whack because when the left pedal goes down, it pushes against the wooden frame. Vince has called Schacht, the manufacturer, and they told him how they think it needs to be fixed so he will try that this evening. If it works, great! There are a few minor dings that I wish hadn’t happened but so long as she works like she is supposed to, I will not complain. If Vince can’t resolve the “out of whack” issues, we’ll have to make a claim on the insurance and go from there.
Nothing is ever as easy as it should be it seems. In the end, it’s a wooden object and it can be fixed or replaced. I wish all the world’s troubles were so easily resolved.
