Re-discovered some forgotten delights from my first dig while going through an old box.

These dominoes are my favorites. They're bone, and what I imagine as child size (11/16 X 1-3/8) or made for a small hand.

They feel great, in hand. I coated them with mineral oil before boxing them up years ago. They're kinda dry. Would the curatorial committee recommend another application, or something else, entirely?

Then came Larry Lutz. He always had a crush on Conchita. https://i578.photobucket.com/albums/ss221/surfaceone/Surf%20II/85d92c54.jpg

With Larry was his cousin, Facetia, who was bold as buttons. https://i578.photobucket.com/albums/ss221/surfaceone/Surf%20II/DSC03103.jpg
