Lucky Find

I was just walking from the car to my folk’s house (we’re currently mooch docking on their property) when I noticed something shiny on the ground. It looked like a spring until I bent over to pick it up and it turned out to be a headless 5/32″ Allen bolt.

In my head I’m thinking, “Oh great! What now?”  But it was more of a sigh than an angry thought.  I figured it had to be something from the awning since we’ve had it out the last few days (and the wind keeps kicking it back in).

So, up I go to look at all the joints.  Once again, not too difficult.  After just a minute I found where it went! It is one of six bolts holding the awning to its frame.

All it took was a minute to screw it back in.  But, to be on the safe side, I checked all the screws.  Glad I did since two others were a little loose.

It’s the little victories that make me happy!
