Printer’s Blocks (085/365)

2012 03 25 IMG_1771w
“Before printing was discovered, a century was equal to a thousand years.“

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), U.S. philosopher, author, naturalist. A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers (1849), in The Writings of Henry David Thoreau, vol. 1, p. 60, Houghton Mifflin (1906).

TIME:  2:31 PM
PLACE:  St. Louis City Museum
SUBJECT:  Wall of printer’s blocks

Today I accompanied StellaDella’s Brownie troop and troop leader to the City Museum in St. Louis.  DramaQueen, MonkeyBoy and DQ’s BFF also came with us.  It was a trade-off – they could come and have fun, but we also used them to help wrangle the 9 girls.  Another set of parents met us later for even more reinforcements – then we let the three older ones off on their own.  It worked out well.  At 1:30pm we ate lunch in a private room off the Skateless Park.  These blocks were attached to one of the end walls of our room.
