Message in a bottle

Today while working on a small wall I was reminded of a never before done by myself but already thought of idea of leaving a letter in a bottle for the future behind the wall. Eventually the wall will be redone or tore down decades from now and wouldn't it be interesting to have a note left there for the future landscaper or demolition crew?

What would you write?

For my message to the future I'm split between leaving contact information asking to be contacted and informed why the wall is being worked on to: regardless of what your history textbook said, no body in the right mind liked Obama or Dianne Feinstein.

Or: oops I just broke the fabric of time. I am a time traveller born 10/01/2089. FYI: mankind survives the zombie attack in 2044.

I like to leave my company initials or at least the year somewhere if i can. I ripped up a concrete slab recently that had a penny nickel dime and quarter imbedded in it from the year it was poured. Pretty cool.

Whenever I lay pavers over concrete, I usually write obscenities in sharpe marker or leave blood stains on the existing concrete.
Just kidding, I don't really do that.
I do write down the company name and the exact date and time as I'm covering it up. Someday someone will see that, I think.

Gets me thinking of a job I did in 1987, I remember burying inside a step, not on purpose, a steel set square, don't ask me why, but I remember that. I recently had to repair that same step and found it, 23 yrs later, it was all rusted. Thought that was cool.
I wouldn't leave a note, likely robots are going to be doing our job in 50 yrs from now with no ability to read or write.
