It was 440 million years old ... and I lost it

Tuesday, March 03, 2020

It was about 440 million years old, I lost it in my house. So I bought another one, and misplaced it too. Really bugged me. It made it on the planet for that long, and in a few months this modern day homo-sapiens lost them.

You might wonder, what could be that old, and where would you buy such a thing.

There was private fossil shop near the dinosaur museum in Drumheller Canada. I bought a trilobite fossil, about 440 million years old, for $40. In no time at all I misplaced it. So sad, ... the next time I went there I bought another one. I misplaced it too. Its like I could loose all of antiquity given enough time.

Today I found them in a treasure box. I now have two trilobite fossils. Also found in that box ... my hospital name tag from when I was born, 1958. It fits around my thumb. Not nearly as old as the trilobites though.
