Good photos and Tucson coverage, Gail! Few people, specimens, or events escaped your roving camera. My only disappointment: the Gemfields lady on this page is only a poster. In one of your early photos, she appeared to be admiring the big rhodo from the other side of the case!

Gail

I to would like to add my thanks for all you do. I only make it to Tuscon once in a great while any more. It is nice to see not only the minerals but how people have changed over the last 40+ years. I feel old now.

Got it Steve, thanks. I am so busy taking photos that I don't always catch names, or only worry that I post the wrong name. It took me ages to figure out how to spell Gene Meieran's last name! If anyone sees a photo of someone they know, please tell me what page to find them on, then the photo number above the photo? I appreciate the help!
Cheers, Gail

I would like to thank you all very much for reporting Tucson Show. I was very upset that I can not go, and you help me to survive this hard time :-) In fact I was so unhappy that I went on trip to Mezica for underground collection. Rest of time I spent refreshing pages with reports :-)
