so the story goes...I was waiting tables at this little local place that had live music on the weekends. One Saturday nite we had a blues performer by the name of Catfish Hodge came in. Apparently he was quite popular locally the 70's. So I was working and asked if he needed anything. "A brick" he replied. "Sorry, I'm fresh outta bricks" I answered. Later in the evening he asked me "Have you found me a brick yet?" "not yet" I said. My much older sister was quite jealous because she was a BIG fan of his & wanted to know about the little inside thing Catfish & I had going. Anyhow the next time he came to play I made sure I had a brick for him. The cool thing was that he actually truly appreciated it. Even though it was such a simple thing he appreciated the thought & the fact that it was something I had made, you know.


sorry for the picture quality

Sorry to be long winded. Just thought a catfish brick needed a little explanation. Thanks for looking.

Thanks for all your replies!

I love the story but I have to know why he wanted a brick and what he did with it?

He was just trying to be a smarty pants. He didn't need a brick for anything. He set it on the bottom of his mic stand for the show. Lord knows what he did with it after that.

Great story!

I love that font face. Did it come with a kit?

Actually I already had the letters. I got them at Michaels a while back for a stepping stone I made for someone a couple Christmas-es (??)  ago.

That's cool! How did you make it? This would be a great present for a lot of people I know.

I bought a kit at AC Moore. Its just colored concrete the only thing the kit is good for is the mold, otherwise you can buy concrete & coloring separately as well as different shaped molds. They even have little coaster sized ones. Oh, the possibilities.

The picture makes it look about the size of an eraser. I'm assuming it's really the size of a real brick??

Yup, brick size. Although, mine is not as thick, you could though, there is room in the mold.
