Another Magdalena Tale

From John Wilson:

"We got out to B. W. Cox's sawmill.  I had a chance to chat with Mr. Cox (he did not like being called Mr. Cox).  What an interesting guy.

"The two guys working the mill were filled with interesting information as well.  Guillermo has been around here for over thirty years.  Javier is more recently from Mexico City.  When it came time to write the receipt and the date became apparent, I mentioned that it was Pi Day.  Quizzical looks from the two.  I held my hands to form a circle and then drew my hand across the middle.  Guillermo immediately lit up and wrote 3.146 in lumberman's chalk on the wall of the shed.  Javier was right behind."
