Okay, I am pretty much done! I have some photos of the Ed Swoboda slide show from his presentation. I might add those in soon, just for reference. But am taking a break before doing so. Each photo, depending on the time of day, was about 45 seconds to a minute or more to load. So this was a report done with love, shall we say?
I am impressed with the people whom we see year in and year out, as well as new friends we seem to make each time we go to Tucson.
What an honor to co host with Jordi, that evening was delightful. Honoring the outgoing curators as well as the incoming was priceless. The smiles, the handshakes and hugs, well....all I can say is that you are all wonderful.

I will be doing the Houston show report in a few weeks, so look for that. We are also attending Munich this year, so I wonder if I will have MORE than 31 pages for that! Ha!

Best regards to Bill Smith, may this report give you hours of entertainment, we are thinking of you!
Special hugs to Jordi and my dear, patient, husband...Jim.
It was quite a time!!!
Gail Spann

A good idea :-)

I just fantasized how cool it would be to find this complete scenario under the Christmas Tree once: http://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/files/dscn1562_958.jpg ;-)

Thank you so much for the wonderful report, Gail! We all appreciate the immense amount of time you've spent posting pictures and adding comments. Your report is the closest thing to experiencing Tucson in person. Luckily I was able to make the show this year, but I followed your reports closely for the last two years to keep up with the action. Keep up the great work!

I just have to throw my thanks in as well. Your report from Tucson 2010 is what made me finally decide to haul the family out there last year - sad we missed this year! It is always a joy to see your reports and I always CRAVE more! Thanks again!
