To wash out the tank to set up for the Joker run these marbles were named after Dave's second granddaughter ("Mylee"). These are 1/2" and 5/8"'s in size and I'm told less then 200 lbs were made.

Will post pics as soon as I can.

RE. Jabo "mylee" Run -Please excuse me if this is a duplication becuase I believe I just accidentally caused it to

go into the trash whilst attempting to scroll down the screen in an effort to add this/reply. I really do not know

what I'm doing.

I want to bring some clarification to the usage of the name "mylee" as it relates to a specific marble.

For sometime(years) Dave McCullough has wanted to pull off a Red, White & Blue marble. Call it patriotic fervor.

Actually some time in the past year I proposed the same to him letting him know a R,W&Blue marble w/mica

would be totally cool. In 1989-'90 I commissioned David Salazar to make me some Peppermint Swirls. I had

Peppermint Swirl examples from over a doz. different contemporary marble makers during the early 1990s.

So, when during the March 5th Tribute to Friendship Run he did indeed accomplish a 3/4" Red, White & Blue w/

mica marble the immediate thought was to give it serious name recognition. Thus the name Mylee. That was

clearly established.

Now I do not know the inner machinations occuring with this latest run but I felt for the purposes of clarification

I should bring to the attention of all that quite legitimately(and how more legitimate than withe Dave Mc-

Cullough's sanction could it be) a marble has already been named after his granddaughter Mylee.

Thank you for considering these nomenclature facts, David Chamberlain

That's what I had understood also! I also knew that Dave always wanted a red, white and blue marble. I was told that it was named after Dave's 2 grandaughter Mylee! And was named during the Tribute to Friendship run! I even wrote it down! So I was very confussed after I read that the last Joker run named one Mylee also???????

Dave wrote me that the washout to set the tank for the most recent 2009 Joker 2nd Run Oxblood/Aventurine Series was named after his second granddaughter, "Mylee" by Rick Hall & Ed Parsons two of the main investors of the Joker run. These marbles are 1/2" and 5/8" in diameter.

I must say they sure are sweet...Jabo "Mylee" Run.
