We five girls had Lincoln Logs to play with way before my brother Patrick arrived on the scene. We loved putting them together and making houses and villages. I became an Interior Designer. Patrick did try architecture but is now a radiant heating specialist. The set stayed in the window seat/chest next to the fireplace and when grandchildren arrived they enjoyed playing with the Lincoln Logs so much so that Mom kept them when she moved into a retirement center and the first great-grandchild played with them. They are now with my brother until his 20-something boys have children. - Becky, Cincinnati
