A summary of Mary's visit

Mary can't hide the fact that she really likes dogs. She was always giving the dogs treats and they were usually licking their lips in anticipation.

Mary and I made a trip to the National Gallery when she was here. "Maman", just outside the National Gallery, is a huge spider. Mary's two favourite paintings are "The Temptation of St. Anthony", attributed to Hieronymus Bosch, and "Voice of Fire" by Barnett Newman. The chapel is the part of a real chapel that was dismantled and reassembled inside the gallery building.

Things Mary did when she was here (when it was not hosing down):
top L: unloaded stuff from trailer and installed foam bed protector. (photo taken after use)
top R: loaded about 1.5 cubic yds of clay from back of property into trailer, and then shovelled it into the hole by the tree stumps. (see blue bucket at top of image). This shows the rain that was pelting down - a common occurance during Mary's visit!
bottom L: sifted rocks out of dirt piles and levelled it all out.
bottom R: got rid of junk. Hmm, lawn needs mowing again -- must be all that rain!
