He built scaffolding in front of one very tall stela. I was perched on top, with no way to get down, so he maneuvered huge sheets of plastic that I always carried with me so I could work up there.

To dry the paper, he then used pine sticks to build a fire at the base of the stela, but the smoke all came up to where I was working. I was gagging on smoke, my face wrapped in a wet handkerchief, but my eyes were crying continually. We were having so much rain that it was hard to believe that there are long periods of time sometimes six months and sometimes a year during which Uaxactun gets no rain at all.

We did have a field day though, even if most of it was in the rain. One of the first stelae I did a rubbing of was Stela 1, which had the upper portion broken off in ancient times Figure 1.

As this is the only monument found on it raining most of the time, the Aldanas took us right the only mound at Uolantun, Morley postulated in The Inscriptions into their very comfortable home, where kids, chickens, of Peten that this tiny site was an offshoot of nearby Uaxactun.

Uaxactun Stela 5. Figure 2. Uaxactun Stela 3. I first became acquainted with Ed Shook when I was rabbits, and a pig lived happily together.

I believe his last library was the one he sold to the stuffed it with pieces of cloth, then made its yellow hair archaeological museum in Villahermosa, Mexico. Of from nylon rope. And of course this doll had to have a course each library had fewer of the rare books than the dress.

We hated to leave Uaxactun, we were having so one before it. Ed started his work as a young man of much fun despite the rain. In my field book I made many 21 in Campeche, Mexico. There was no trail, nor was there any water in it.
