SCULPTURES UNDER CONSTRUCTION - installing weatherproof sculpture
Around dinner time the work was finished but for removing the legs the next day. Fred had gone home and I was undecided how long I should wait; the cement had hardened but maybe not enough when children would come and play on the sculptures.
After dinner the helping boy returned with his skate board and was anxious to try it out on these inviting curves. I told him that would not be possible until tomorrow. He said he'd wait but would he? What to do? I was hungry and was determined to wait at least a few hours more. So I gave him money for two portions of fries and asked him if he would get some for me and him. He left and returned with the fries. After that he said that he would stay and guard the sculpture and assured me that he would allow no one on them. I believed him and went home, which is about an hour's drive. The next day Fred and I returned to cut the legs off and finish the work.
