Wish I could be there to see it out on display. They both have great collections having seen them at their house over the years.

Les and Paula Presmyk came through Pine Bluff on their way to The East Coast Show. Les, being ever mindful of the environment, was explaining to Gwen and me that although this is a slower mode of transportation, it leaves a much smaller carbon footprint than the old fashioned internal combustion engine. ;-)

Paula and Les are two of the nicest people one could ever hope to meet. They are going to have 52 cases of their mineral collection on display in Springfield. Paula has won both the Desautels and the Lidstrom Awards. Wish that Gwen and I could be there to see their collection.

I took very few photos at this year's show but here is one that I found amusing. It was in Scott Werschky's case and he is seriously infected.
