Sunday, last day of the Main show... I will be heading out to the airport mid day to fly to San Diego and Jim is going to pick up our pieces in the display cases, head home on Monday. So it is a wild day of picking up minerals from dealers who were packaging our pieces, chatting with folks and trying to finish up on some photos.

Gail, you could fill 290 instead of 29 pages and it would not get boring to read and to watch :-)

Thank you Tobias, it's a joy adding endless photos knowing people like you are taking the time to look at them. You are delightful.

....I want to thank my husband, Jim Spann, for his support in my taking lots of time to do this report. He also grabs the camera to include me in the photos. We are celebrating our 9th anniversary next week. I am a lucky woman.
