…and a fortuitously cloudy one at that as Mark, Romero and Gary catch us out, showing up at 9:30 for the first time ever; three guys, two trucks and a crane, Mark handing me the 3/8″ fuel line needed to finish getting the Chevy running as Gary was rummaging around in the sockets, me saying 11/16″ was a little sloppy; “17” sez Mark, man of few words and so right to work dismantling Linda’s well-traveled “Some Models for the Universe, 1991”. The Chevy soon running, I unloaded winter’s slash into the burnpile and refilled the bed piece by piece with pieces of the elaborate crate in which the Center for the Arts had sent us the glass centers…
Dismantled, reassembled, loaded onto Courtney Transport’s flatbed to be moved a few dozen feet and set permanently out [standing] in their field as Lefty observed from the resuscitated Chevy as well as underfoot, the Models came back to life;
All was done by noon-thirty, and all were down the road before the rain came [“inch of rain; four inches of wind” as Mark observes], making for a nice sound at lunch under the porch roof’s tin and dry and bright by late afternoon light..
Many more depictions of these, our new old friends, [whose travels included Chalon-sur-Saone, France; Long Island City, New York; Walsenburg, Colorado; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Scottsdale, Arizona and a lengthy stay in Mt. Vernon, Illinois at Cedarhurst Center for the Arts before landing in Gerlach last November to winter at Wall Spring] will doubtless appear in subsequent posts…
Maybe; it could take awhile for any subsequent posts.
