This photo does not inSPIRE much comment. But very essential to maintain the correct order 9of positioning of the blocks.
You certainly get around a bit, don't you.

No doubt someone is counting the number of stones there are. Reverend, could you find out the total number and inform us on Photo-a-Day?

That is interesting Rev. I Like to know how these things are done.

On 2nd thoughts, the total number of stones to be kept secret so that a lottery can take place with proceeds going to church funds. The winner would be the one who has guessed this total number correctly.

I hope they don't have any spare pieces left over at the end. ;-)
