or a brick stone builder. A wonderful find!
Bill Phillips: A lot of the old graves have fallen into disrepair but why they filled this with bricks is a mystery. A friend of mine cuts the grass at this church I will ask him if he knows

I wonder where that saying comes from
Bill Phillips: I don't know but i guess houses which are built with bricks are seen as solid and reliable, so it is applied to solid and reliable people

Ha ha ha ha that is really good Bill, so much better than those awful, good pictures you have been posting of late.
Bill Phillips: I try to keep the average standard down Ridge
A fine brick he was...
Bill Phillips: I wonder if his name was House?

Seems to me he also had a split personality
Bill Phillips: His name might have been of the Flemish Bonds
"Of solid character"

Very good Bill, but which one was he?

Like the quirkiness - Mrs Dog would like this.
Bill Phillips: Yes I can imagine Mrs D doing something with this! As to which brick? Well take your pick grin

"A pillar of the community", too?
Bill Phillips: For sure and a gravely serious chap no doubt
Better than being a plank...
Bill Phillips: Plenty of them around Frank.
His grave looks very old, Bill, but the bricks seem relatively new; unlikely to have been placed there at the time of his burial. A mystery.
Bill Phillips: I see a touch of the Sherlock Holmes in your comment Beverly.
That's a funny one Bill...can I count how many squares of bricks in here?
Bill Phillips: If you want to smile
I could put those bricks to good use.You wouldn't feel much pain after the first one.
Bill Phillips: I found a nice empty one just the right size for you and all your cameras
What a most unusual find, I guess none of us will actually know what this is all about.
Bill Phillips: Speculating is often more fun than knowing Brian
perhaps he was into Masonry and this is one of their secret signs !!
Bill Phillips: My Dad was a Freemason but I never saw any bricks!
Quite an intriguing image Bill! Great title.
Bill Phillips: It got me wondering Richard

Bill Phillips: It is rather odd!
Nice treatment, nice find. Not another brick in the wall Bill smile
Bill Phillips: No dark Sarcasm please
"So we took the side off, expecting to find the coffin, and guess what we found!?"
Bill Phillips: It looks like that Holmes
