That, my dear friends, is the end of the show report, hope you enjoyed it and thanks for the kind words, both on here and in private.

I will be at the Denver show, with camera in hand!
Cheers!!!!!

Thank you so much Gail, as always.

Great news that we will also enjoy your Denver Show report!

BTW, the photo from Herb Obodda that you published here and that I copied below, is the nicer photo from him I ever saw, and I saw many... ;-)

Good job Gail!

This is also my favorite of Herb, and I have taken many of him.

That is a nice photo! Obvious delight!

Thank you for documenting this great show Gail -- I've been attending for years; these photos are nice reminders of the many vendors and friends there. I breezed in on Sunday to have Jeff Scovil do some portraits and was so happy to see friends, though all too briefly because I had to hang out near the studio and wait for an opening. Alfredo, sorry did not make it back to your booth!!!...I liked those pseudomorphs? after fluorite was it?...can't you post a photo of those? Saw Vic and Cindy and a few others, but so sorry to have missed John (White) and Gail and others.

Til next time,
Cheers!
Elise

So..look for my Denver show report coming up next month. I will try to get a real feel for the various shows and main show too. Perhaps I should start on caffeine now?

Gail, take a break now, you deserve it, caffeine not yet. Congratulations on your superb report about the Springfield show. Waiting for the next about Denver. And Munich too, perhaps?
