Afternoon nap for Bob and Ed.

Sorting through Luther's 50 cent and $1 stuff. Luther had bought out a rock shop and was selling it all by the pound. Some fantastic deals were made.

My dad and sister ready for the feast!

Time to eat!

Pat gives the food a thumbs up!

Debbie having a bad reaction to something she ate!

A few goodies I bought and traded for at the roundup.

A beautiful lemon quartz specimen that Rob Whaley donated to the Diamond Hill Museum collection. He collected this in 1980.

Picked up some nice Tom Leary bismuth.

A nice multi colored knapped point, gifted to me from Rick B.

Got some great shells from Brian. He dives and collects these himself, many are from the Bahamas.

Some points I traded from Michael Cheatle, collected in Conway, SC.

Among the other weird stuff I traded for and bought, was this Hippo tusk. I also got a killer Tiger tooth mounted in gold.

A big thank you to some of the cleanup crew, Mark, Carol, Bob and Jose. I appreciate all that help get things organized and cleaned at the end of every roundup.

It was a fantastic week as always. I'm already looking forward to next year.
