Just gearing up for the Tucson show again this year. Jim and I will be enjoying the fun and will be sharing our usual photographic tour of minerals, people and scenery.
Looking forward to seeing friends and sharing stories.

I am looking forward to a brief visit to some of the shows and trust that Gail`s excellent photo-reporting will cover the rest... I hope to see some of you there.

Jim and I managed to get ourselves onto the plane and heading to Tucson this fine morning and landed midday. The temps were just wonderful, mid 60s, sunny and light winds.
On our way to check into our hotel we just had to stop in to say hi to a dear friend...

Just finished day one at the Westward Look, all I can say is WOW! I have taken 276 photos. Lots of familiar faces, great minerals, fabulous weather and good chocolate!
Jim and I are meeting up with the Weinrichs for dinner so will do some photos and report later, unless too many margaritas!

So, I only had one BIG margarita and am staying awake quite nicely so far.
Jim is cataloging minerals as I am busy doing my show report. We spent a great deal of our day catching up with old and new friends, it was more about the social, but we still managed to see a lot of minerals.
