carved in stone

Our son John, standing where his name is etched in stone on the sidewalk at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. Sand had collected in his name making it lighter than others, but it’s still there:-) All graduates names, grouped by the year they graduated, are carved in the sidewalks around the campus. It’s a tradition dating back to 1905.

Left foot, up (5) names:

JOHN JACOB BAGBY II

 

 

Man’s mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimensions.
