Mechanical Grandfather

Mabel Watson Payne rode the bus with me today and went out to see my office at the San Francisco library where I work when I am not doing the greater work of looking after her. She wore her 1950s style aqua blue sundress from England – as it was a quite warm day. A colleague took our picture sitting together at my desk and I do not understand why it is that she looks perfectly composed and I look like the tin man in the Wizard of Oz, waiting for the oil can.

Back at home after another interesting bus ride we played with the wooden fruit puzzle for half an hour before it was time for the afternoon nap.
