PostPosted: Sep 14, 2012 22:34    Post subject: Fabulous Denver Gem and Mineral Show, Sept 14, 2012 and on...Gail Spann  

Well, here I am in wonderful Denver, Colorado, for another great gem and mineral show!
I was in Long Beach, California, this morning as Jim and our son, Tom, had driven to Denver after dropping me at the airport yesterday.
I got into the Merchandise Mart later in the day, but still got some fun shots before heading out to dinner with a couple that we enjoy when visiting here.

This is another Gail Spann fun show report, so hope you enjoy it!!!

It had been a long time that I went without sleep, so had coffee and found myself in a mood to chat..endlessly! I was catching up with everyone's stories and paying my respects as the short afternoon went on. So many people that we have met in the mineral community and so little time to visit!!!!

That's about it for our very short Friday portion. Having just flown in from California, and Jim picking me up at the Airport and then going straight to the show without even stopping at our hotel, it left me little time to get many photos.I got up at five a.m. this morning to finish Fridays report. But...I get to go back and see what amazing exhibits they have today!
So...on to Saturday of the show!
