I had bought some blocks a couple of years ago (too early!) and now that Tara’s going to be three, dusted them off to really use them for alphabets instead of just “blocks for a tower”.
Of course as expected, we were missing a few. Now, I could just find it again on Amazon or somesuch place, and refill missing blocks, but, how much I searched, I could not find the exact same set of blocks.
Anyway, later my wife remembered that we got these blocks at a particular shop on California Avenue, and I went there today, hoping to find them again. But unfortunately, I didn’t see them, they just don’t exist.
I even tried looking on eBay just randomly searching through all the listings for “wooden alphabetical blocks“ and hoping to see them but I didn’t.
I think I’m going to have to just settle and get one of the many other “ wooden alphabetical blocks and courtavailable on Amazon, etc.
In the meantime, someone out there didn’t recognize them from this picture (at the top of this post), please do let me know!
You either get very excited about stuff like this, or you don’t: a bunch of papyrus was discovered from during the time the great pyramids were being constructed! (so, mundane “normal life” stuff, along with mundane details of the build, but … isn’t that cool?)
