Questions and Comments:

This oven is in
Twain Harte, CA


 

Days 12 & 13: Brimming with brio and an unquenchable enthusiasm,

A good sign: still standing in the morning... . We stuff mo' mortar into the cracks.
  Down to the foundry for iron.
At the brick palace. If all else fails, we cover everything with concrete and shape it into a pyramid.
