Hi Gail,

Glad to know you are back. Thanks for all the photos. I'm still surprised by how the flowers are in February in Arizona. For the horse you can see some like this in France too. They are either carved directly in wood or are made of wood shards.

Hope to get a great Denver's report.

Cheers

Christophe

Hello one and all, update time.
I am done with chemotherapy and am on some follow up pills, for five years, which will help with keeping cancer at bay. I feel great! Have a good deal of my strength back, am growing some hair, am enjoying cooking and volunteering again.
Dave Wilber was just here for a week, we had fun. So....we will be at the Denver show, look for a show report as usual! Hugs to you all, and to those who kindly sent notes.


Congratulations Gail!

Hi Gail,

Glad to hear your health is coming back strong. Did you happen to take any pics of the fluorescent mineral display (showcase, not dealer display) at the main show? If so, could you post it? Thanks.
