I dunno, that's from a song, I think. Anyway. Here's the display I was dying to see, my main reason for trekking to the big ol' Tucson Gem and Mineral Show -- otherwise known as the Mecca for Mineral Geeks:
I must've memorized their entire site before coming to their hotel room/shop here, where I was completely overwhelmed -- and instantly bankrupted. I dumped so much money here, they gave me the wholesaler's discount.
Then it was off to several other dealers at this same hotel. Basically, the gem and mineral folks take over the whole burg, including every hotel. So this display was in a suite that had been stripped of furniture to make room for the rocks. That's my idea of a vacation.
Oh, and here's a picture of the MIL and me. Just to prove we really survived each other's company for two whole days:
Yeah, I look fat. Meh. Will work on that some other time.
