Our Monday morning adventures continued as we met up with Bob of Really Old Rocks and his friend Gary Johnson. I got some turquoise (of unknown origin - old from the estate of a bead shop owner) and apache tears from Gary. Here's Gary and the pretties I got from him.

It took a while to sort through the various packs of half drilled drops to make sure I can match up pairs and here is the pile I ended up with and a picture of the two people who helped me - brother and sister!
As we were leaving the Pueblo show I saw one of my gemmie friends, Robyn Hawk and not far behind was another friend! What a coincidence! Here's a picture of us gals with one of the many crystal skulls you'll see at the freeway shows.
Our next stop was the 22nd Street show. I was in search of an ammolite pendant for a friend of mine. As I looked and looked for what I thought I saw 2 days ago I found a man, DavidOtteson, selling ribbon turquoise cabs. I can't believe I missed him 2 days ago since I love ribbon turquoise! It's hard to find since it has to be just a thin ribbon of turquoise in some hard rock like quartz or jasper. I did forget to take a picture of David, but here are the gorgeous cabs I got.
