Talk about a happy accident! Your Stone Bank blogger sat down to breakfast on the Amtrak recently with two strangers. But we weren’t strangers for long. Deb and Kath were great breakfast companions — and they loved the story of the Stone Bank.
When Deb returned home to Wisconsin, she ordered a Stone Bank T-shirt from StoneBank.org.
Deb reports that she loves her shirt and she sent this photo!
This is the year that we plan to raise the back section of the bank and put the roof on. Join us on the journey! Every T-shirt sale helps. Don’t want a T-shirt? Dedicate a stone or just make a contribution.
Let’s get this done! Your donation will make a difference.
Thanks for your support.

Dear Stone Bank Folowers: How about a couple of guesses about the Stone Bank Puzzle! Simple guess will do. It took longer than a week for the Amtrak passengers at the Rugby, ND station to fix it — but how much longer?
AND NOW THERE IS A PRIZE! Three of the Stone Bank wristbands. All the rage! So post your guess in the comments section.

It seemed like a great idea. A puzzle!
Such symbolism. Such a challenge. Such fun.
And such a great way to raise money for the Stone Bank project.
Only five were made — and we donated one to the Amtrak station in Rugby, N.D., where there is always a puzzle in the waiting area. (The station master even keeps track of how long each puzzle takes to finish.)
Here’s how it looked after Week 1.
Comment on this blog post about how long it will take for the Amtrak waiting room puzzle to be completed. (No cheating.)
Oh, and No Prize. Just the fun of guessing.
Take into your calculation that the train has been running on time, so passengers don’t have a long stay in the waiting room. Hmmm.
