Once upon a time, someone at A.C.O.G. decided they should go into the business of selling bricks. Engraved ones, to be "planted" in Centennial Park. Most of the public scoffed, but I thought it was a good idea, so I bought five. Please stop snickering.
Now, A.C.O.G. is holding my bricks hostage, and they won't let me see them! The-Powers-That-Be have decreed that mere Atlantans cannot set foot in the park until July 14. So, I not only have no photos of them, but I have no evidence they are even there, nevermind correct. [NOTE: Update below, with photo]
I guess I should just be happy if they plant them right side up:
Joe Bob: "Hey, Earl, these bricks ain't got no engravin's on top of 'em."
Earl: "Dang it, Joe Bob, just plant 'em! We got a tight deadline....happy hour starts in 30 minutes."
When they've decided it's safe to let me in, I'll get some photos online.
On Saturday, 7/20, I finally made it down to Centennial Park, and went off in search of my bricks. I had called the *brick-finder* phone line, and got the block number my bricks are in, but that only narrows it down to about a thousand bricks. And as much as I thought my group of five bricks would jump out at me, it was my third trip around before I found them.
A.C.O.G. did 80% of the job right. All bricks purchased together were supposed to be *laid* together, right in a nice little row perfectly laid out for photographic purposes......NOT! They got four of them in a row, but the brick for my maternal grandparents is one row to the side and below the rest.
I know, I know, I should just be happy they're right side up......whaddaya want for $175.....customer satisfaction?
Maybe I'll call A.C.O.G. and ask them if they could run down there and fix that today.....
