He had a zany side to him (just ask his grandkids and students) and this
shot shows him babbling to his bubbling fountain. He used to sit in his
Secret Garden every happy hour (weather permitting) and on this day he
was fascinated by the dancing and gurgling of the fountain, so much so
he wanted to join in the merriment himself! The fountain was a garden
hose weighted down by a brick immersed in an old pig scalding kettle
which came with the old farmhouse. Leave it to CVR to have thought of
how to turn an old cast iron pot into a thing of great delight.
