    Of course I kept it out, and substituted another brick in its place.  We have another with a dog print, and we've saved out all the ones with the lot numbers inscribed.

    My husband tells strangers that Thomas Jefferson came to visit and his dog stepped on the bats.  You'd be amazed at how many people believe him.

      You know, maybe the dog print story isn't so far off. Wouldn't it be great to know who all visited your place over all these years? You can bet there were some very historical figures.
