As I mentioned in the last post I bought a canopy marquee to go up outdoors for dinner. Mr. B was not thrilled about giving this thing a try before the dinner scheduled for a week from Wednesday but I didn't want any surprises so I insisted we give it a try today. The instructions mentioned at least 4 times something about watching out for your fingers and 'pinching' this or that so I told Mr. B to watch out for his fingers and off we went.
The thing is, this was surprisingly easy to put up and take down! The most difficult parts of this project were:
1. Getting Mr. B to do this
2. Reading the badly printed instructions
3. Getting it packed tight enough to get it into the wheeled nylon, zippered bag when it is taken down
I think this is going to be great for our dinner party!
