Hurry! Hurry! Hurry! Lean-to Shed Progress & Paris Notre-Dame Gargoyles

The weather has been so hot, I don't know how people work in the heat when it is in the 90s or higher. The low 90s is fine in Fresno in the shade, we don't have high humidity and don't need to run the AC at that temperature. It got to 93 today but Jan worked anyway.

Here is Jan this afternoon with the sides up for the lean-to shed for the extra long boards. The sides are pretty high, Jan is almost 6'2" tall. The sides were made of four panels he picked up from a discard pile.

Now I'm thinking, "Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!" Patience, patience, woman I tell myself.

It will be much better for Jan to get all the wood organized so we can get back to the garden castle shed project.

We have a very lonely little gargoyle waiting for his perch to protect his castle from evil. So, what do you think? Is he scary? Naaaa, he's a cute little guy.

Here are some scary gargoyles.

In 1991 Jan and I climbed the stairs at Notre-Dame in Paris to see the gargoyles. I had to scan the 3 photos from that day. It was an amazing feeling seeing them, here is Jan, peeking through.

The Notre-Dame gargoyles served a purpose, they were downspouts for the gutters. They look vicious to me.

The Notre-Dame Cathedral website says, "Although some of them may be frightening, they remind us that all creatures are the work of God, so they deserve His love and salvation."
