Mary-less Bathtub

(For those not familiar with the idea of a "Bathtub Mary," in the Northeast - at least - where there were a lot of Catholic immigrants, many people created impromptu shrines by half burying upright bathtubs, then placing a statue of Mary - or some other saint - in it. When I walk around my changing neighborhood I still see some bathtubs sticking up - but no longer containing a statue.)

Pax et bonum
