Rainy Day Play

Mabel Watson Payne undertook many projects when we spent the day at her place in San Francisco on Thursday. (There is general agreement that her mouth has been uncomfortable lately with the cutting of new molars, and this has meant a renewed tendency to stick objects and fingers and sometimes her whole hand into her mouth – that old phrase about "growing pains" was not made up for nothing.)

The morning was rainy and dark, but there was no shortage of entertainment. Above, Mabel made an artificial leg to go inside one of my shoes. Below, she courageously overcame the difficulties of walking in a new pair of her mother's heels.
