PostPosted: Apr 30, 2013 07:38    Post subject: Re: Houston Fine Mineral Show Report, with Gail Spann  

I am going to volunteer, this morning, at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science to work the gem and mineral hall, as I do each Tuesday as a Docent. I will finish the last of the report when I get back later, today.

After the show, we were invited to see and photograph a private collection in Houston. So I went on to take a few hundred more photos after this report photo group. I now know why I have a 32 GB memory card!

I cannot share those photos, as the owner has asked for them to be kept private, but it is one of the great joys of knowing many in the mineral community, the delight of seeing what other people collect.

Be back shortly.... Gail

That, my dear fellow mineral collectors, is that. We went out to do that photo shoot, had dinner with Tom Gressman from the Mineralogical Record, said our goodbyes and drove 282 miles home. It was a sweet time at the party, the Webbs were wonderful hosts, and a great day at the mineral show on Friday.
I hope you enjoy my photo journal of the show.
All the best, Gail Spann.
