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!
