We went back to our hotel, handed the Aragonite to Joe Budd, since he was at the hotel, and asked him to photo it for us.
Then we got dressed to head over to Bill and Carol Smith's home for a viewing of their minerals and a great home cooked meal.
( How nice to be on the receiving end of this for a change! )
Will post pictures of the get together later.

So...Moving on to Sunday.

SUNDAY Sept 20, 2009

Sunday, the show will be closing at five and we are all over trying to look at minerals, pick up minerals we purchased, pick up mineral we had photographed, continue paying our respects and sharing stories with everyone.
What a day!
We went and had breakfast at the Cracker Barrel with Irv Brown, we don't get to visit quietly at the show so thought a restaurant would give us a chance to catch up.
It is amazing how many people we have gotten to know in the almost five years we have been collecting.

How cute! Good to see that there are still young children who are interested in nature an who are fascinated by the beauty of minerals and the thrill and fun of collecting! I started at the age of 8 oder 9 and today, only one generation later, the kids nearly never have interests like that. They rather collect ringtones than minerals ... :-/ But the more we have to support children who join this passion. So it's really wonderful to see such a little one showing so much enthusiasm! Great!

Gail,

The woman of the post -> http://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=7285#7285 , is not only: "A woman that I met through friends on Facebook..." but is nothing more and nothing less than the graceful Ludmila Cheshko which with her partner Michael B. Leybov, edit the fine Russian magazine Mineral Observer--Mineralogical Almanac -> http://www.lithographie.org/bookshop/no_c_mineral_observer.htm

Both are wonderful people, but her English language is just OK, that's why probably you don't noticed who she is. So, the honor of the meeting were mutual!..;-)

Jordi -- you beat me to it! Nice to see Ludmilla, who is a good long-time friend of ours, as is Michael. Glad to see she made Denver again... as we, unfortunately, did not. The publication they put out is excellent.
