The weather has been great for the festival this year. No rain, no floods, no bitter cold, no heat -- just right, comfortable weather. I have some pics of friends and favorite marble makers that I'll share with the folks who couldn't come this year.

I bought mostly contemps, a few vintage machines mades, but I won't do pics in my hotel room again. They would be dark. I'll post pics of the pretty contemps after i get home. the show pics are in sunlight so they won't be dark.

There was a wedding at the marble festival this year. The groom is a member of the Nutmeg Marble Club, West Virginia Marble Collector's Club, and Texas Marble Collectors Inc.

Adrian Hernandez married Barbara Garza. Some of us attended the wedding.
