PostPosted: Apr 27, 2009 20:07    Post subject: Visit to Bill Pinch collection  

We got a visit in with Bill Pinch, collector of note from the Rochester, N.Y. area. He is a delightful man with exquisite tastes in art, cars and minerals. ( to name a few things. )

He had invited us to visit him when we were all in Tucson, and he also invited Jolyon...so we went together. We were there right around lunch time till just before dinner on Friday.

Every once in a while I leave to go do something like llaundry, or unpack, or play with the dogs. Then I tackle adding a few more entries into this report. It is such a joy to see the whilttling away of the many photos I have taken though, and to share them.
So, here goes my next round....

Thanks for a lovely report with human photographs and great seeing some of Bill Pinch specimens! He is extremely knowledgable.

Gail's answer: Thanks Peter, still have more to put on there, just have to find the time. I haven't even downloaded all the photos of both my cameras yet.
