...I was very happy to look up and see the display folks that are working with our committee for the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas. I had no idea they would be there, so what a thrill to hook up. These fellows are working on all the displays for the Mineral Hall.
We have had fun visiting during the galas also.
They mentioned they were looking for, and found, large Selenite crystals for part of the display.
Jim and I serve on the Mineral Hall Committee, and I serve on the Advisory Board.

We are awaiting the birth of our seventh grandchild, we have the other six all set with a great beginner collection. I am all for seeing children at shows.
