Hello everyone,

 

Here are some pictures and commentary on the Crossroads of America Marble Show.  As usual Beth Morris and company put on a wonderful show, there were plenty of vendors and collectors on hand as well.  All in all a fantastic time.  I did take a few more pictures than usual, I tried to get more pictures of the marbles than I usually do but it does make for a rather long read.

 

Some things in Indiana:

 

1.  Misty mornings.

2.  Big bean fields.

3.  Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Colts.

4.  And the Great Crossroads of America Marble Show!
