January 9th 2010 Indianapolis Show


1.    The day of the Indy show had arrived and I looked

      outside to a bunch of snow…          

      So I did what any good father would do and handed his daughter a snow

      shovel.  My son tried to take my position as an observer but as you can

      see in the next picture my daughter got him lined out.

 2.    Kids sure are handy J

 3.    We got to the show and checked out who all was there.

 4.    Notice that Griff and Bill O. are listed twice?  I was relieved to learn

      that it was mistake; there was only one of each at the show.  Bill O. is a

      nice enough fellow but I don’t think the world is ready for two Griffs.  


 Group 1


5.    A lot of people braved the bad weather to make it to the show, Rick and

      his son Jake (not pictured) made it.  

6.    The Splattman! Rhonda must have called and reminded him.

7.    It was a pleasure to meet Kevin and his daughter Kenzie.

8.    Chris J.  A great guy who has the best hand made collection I’ve ever


 Group 2


9.    Diane B. gave my kids a couple of animatronic puppies, you push a button

      and they roll around and play Christmas tunes.  I asked our Pomeranian

      why he couldn’t do that, he just looked at me like I was stupid (so did my


10.  Diane entertaining kids, when we go to a show my kids always ask if Diane

      is going to be there.  A wonderful person, thanks Diane.  PS, Diane after

      the kids went to bed me and Karen played with the puppiesJ. 

11.  Mike A. manning the Id/Appraisal table.

12.  Kim W. keeping an eye on things while Mike is out wondering around.  I

      wasn’t able to get a picture of Beth the club President, she unfortunately

      wasn’t able to be at the show but she left it in very capable hands with

      Mike and Kim. 

Group 3


13.  Griff, me and Ron Shepard.  I’m smiling because I’m at the marble show,

      Ron’s smiling because he’s a happy guy and Griff is smiling because he just

      lifted my wallet.  

14.  Griff counting my loot.

15.  Ron, Kokoken and Steve S.

16.  The light outside of my favorite marble room.

      spectacular Vitros that you will see at a show.

Group 6


25.  Elizabeth and Steve, Steve loaned me several really cool marbles to take

      pictures of for my site.  Included were some 1991 Jabo’s , these were

      some of the very first classics made.  Thanks Steve.  

26.  Some other interesting things that Steve brought to the show, here is the

      shear from a 1932 Vitro machine. 

27.  Here is a cup and shear from a modern Jabo machine.

28.  The cup is stationary on the marble machine and the shear sits in a water

      cooled platform that moves back and forth and cuts off chunks of glass as

      it flows into the cup.  Very neat stuff. 

Group 7

32.  Some John Hamon Miller contemporaries.

Group 8


33.  Lonnie Conyers, he usually hangs out with this guy Bud (whom I failed to

      get a picture of), a couple of real marble nuts.  I had talked to Bud he

      told me that it had really been a great show for him and that he wished it

      would last a couple more days.     

34.  Some of Bud’s marbles (I think).

35.  Some of Lonnie’s marbles, the Vitro, 3rd row down, 3rd from the left is a

      really neat marble.  If I hadn’t been robbed by an unnamed party earlier

      it would be in my collection.

     some Christmas puppies per my son’s request.
