I'm so dumb

This wasn't for grinding grain...

It's an olive press.

I wrote, "The big round things were for grinding grain. You put a wooden beam through the square hole in the middle, and hooked it up to a turny-thing in the middle and to a bunch of donkeys at the ends, and they just plodded along all day."

But the part about the donkeys was probably true.

Just got a note back from those American nuns in Molise. I think I'll go next weekend.
