I am finally back in Texas, at home and feeling good, I have hundreds of shots of the main show, the cases, the minerals and other things on display there. So keep checking back as I load them.

Great report so far, Gail! Keep up the good (if time consuming) work. It was a pleasure meeting you at the show and talking about a most favorite subject...minerals! I'm sorry I had to cut your picture taking short, but hopefully we'll see some really nice pictures of those minerals at some point in the near future!
