The Quartermaster aspires to be a Mason…

…No, not that kind of Mason.

It seems that practically any small town or village in Italy has at least one or two little shrines or grottoes where townspeople can stop and pray, or leave a spray of flowers. Lots of these little niches are dedicated either to Our Lady or Padre Pio. I’d like to build a small shrine in my backyard, which would require me to dabble in amateur masonry. Fortunately, the old homespun look is rather charming. Precision is not required, which is good, because I seriously doubt that I will be adept at being a Mason.
