  2. My condolences to the family, and marble community. brad
  3. I reread this post, and realized it was not well-written. I have never met Dean, but I have both his books. My 🤣🤣🤣 is due to the small-world syndrome between glass collectors/makers.

I gave her 2 bags, and she paid for 2 cigar boxes. Her kids left the first 2 bags of mibs every where, and the cigar boxes answered her prayers for solving that issue. The looks on the kids faces when getting a bag was priceless...
  12. I’ve got 4 tubs of akroware that need a new home...
