It is one thirty in the morning and I cannot stay awake. The margarita's didn't help any!
I will continue my show photo report tomorrow. Lots of good photos to come. Night Y'all.

Hi Gail,

Glad both of you arrived safely in Tucson. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us (I really like your rhodo).

Hope to see more of them in the coming days.

Enjoy the show

Christophe

Hi Gail,

Thanks for you efforts in taking and posting the photos of the minerals and people involved. It is a comfort for those of us who had to pass on this year`s show. I have been to most of the Tucson shows for the last 20 years and really miss the action. The only thing I don`t envy you is the cold weather ! For once it is warmer here up north than what you had a couple of days ago. Have fun and keep on reporting !
Knut

It was great to meet Steve and Diane Sorrel in person today.

I am going to be honest here, I am so tired after two mineral shopping all day long and going to two wonderful parties tonight. I will leave you with a spoiler, or two.....just to keep you coming back. Night!

Thanks to all for sharing not only the pics but the feelings and the atmosphere.

It is a good counterpoint to my boring and cold -without Show- Sunday here in Europe.

Cheers

PS: Gail, every year with your report I learn to love a bit more your "people pictures" than mineral ones.

I have to say I am not surprised you were too tired last night Gail. Yesterday was such a busy day. I don't know how you do it! We left Danny's party at 10 last night and you hadn't made it there by then. It was really good meeting you and Jim. Thanks and we will see you Tuesday.

Regards
Steve

One of the highlights of this trip is meeting Steve and Diane.
We ended up at Danny and Marissas at 10:30 and stayed about an hour. Got some great photos last night! The Mules parked outside Wayne and Dona Leichts house were amazing!!! Photos to follow....

Thanks Debbie!

I am sorry for the delay, it has been a very busy time. So much has happened and I have a lot of catching up to do on here.
