Hello everyone,

Here is a report on the Decatur Show.  It was a nice show, the drive over to Decatur was fantastic and I got to see a couple of really exceptional things there.  One was a Peltier Comic collection that was insane.  I was told by several in the know Peltier collectors that it was probably the best in the country.  The owner wasn’t letting anyone take pictures yet, I believe that the marbles may be in an upcoming book, but he told me that he would give me a shot at them some time after that so hopefully I’ll get them up on or the forums when I get them.


Unfortunately I got there too late to catch Ron, Nancy and Bill, they brought the Alox Machine to Decatur where they gave a talk and answered questions.


Chuck has become a celebrity since the show, he’s probably also single after his confession of a marble purchase; click this link to see what I’m talking about.


1.  A couple of pics of the drive over.

2.  I once read that the Midwestern US was considered the world’s greatest natural resource because of its ability to produce food.  Nothing to do with marbles, just thought it interesting.

3.  Our destination…

4.   and why we came J
