The crew erects what turns out to be a pergola rather than a pavilion.

Proof negative
 They began erecting woodhenge across the street from me yesterday, where Bear's house was. Meanwhile, I worried about the drift of paint chips in my yard, figuring that some of the paint was so old it must be lead or casein, a milk-based paint once used. I planned to rake up and dispose of the chips and bury the dust. Then my lead-testing kit was delivered. You dip the swabs in vinegar, whereupon they turn yellow, and then rub them on the surfaces you are testing. If they turn red or purple, lead is present. If not, you're damn lucky!
After working on the pergola, Jacob and Austin came over here.
