I am off to roam the Inn Suites and then off to the Main show. Today is childrens day at the show, I usually wait for it to quiet down before going there. But I love the children and how they see the minerals, gems and jewelry.
Jim arrives back in Tucson today, I have missed him greatly. We love to enjoy Tucson together.
Later.....

Well, as you can tell, I have been too tired late at night to put photos and captions on here. I have amazing photos, great rocks and wonderful people yet to add.
I leave for home today, and expect I will be loading photos for hours on end in the comfort of my own living room.
Jim made it in, Jolyon and I went to the airport to pick him up and went straight to Peter and Allyson Megaw's party. Bill did NOT have an iguana on his head as last year.
But I got a good photo of him which I will share later, it is rather an interesting one...ahem.
Got to hand it to Bill Larson, he has a great sense of humour.

My biggest dilemma today...how to get all the rocks and minerals I picked up this week home......

My best wishes to you all...

Well Ladies and Gentlemen, I am going to pack up my trusty Mac Book Air and head out to the Main show. Last night was the TGMS dinner and awards ceremony. Congratulations to all who won.
I have great photos taken of all winners and the fun of the dinner and silent auction as well. I urge people to attend and support the event every year. We are grateful to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Society for all their hard work and this is a great way to show our appreciation.

Till later, and look for hundreds more photos to come....
My very best to you all, Gail

Back in Dallas and settling in. We have a new member of our home, a puppy...white standard sized poodle named Albite. He joined our four other big dogs a few weeks before coming to Tucson. I had quite a greeting when I came in the front door!

Our flight was on time and no worries on bringing our minerals in our carry on luggage. Our son Tom, who was a dealer at the Westward Look show, brought all our minerals back when he left that Tuesday after. We also asked a dealer friend to bring a couple of flats back as well.

It is often a concern, and if someone was smart they might start a courier service to deliver minerals for people who fly in but need drivers to deliver. Just a thought.....

So......let's see what photos I can add this fine morning....
