President's Message

September and fall is upon us.  It has been a frustrating time period as the annual Gem and Mineral Show which we love so much has had to be cancelled for this year.  This makes us very sad and frustrated.  The National Guard here in Lexington was not able to drill on their usual weekend due to budget shortfalls.  This pushed their training to the weekend of our show... or possibly the following weekend.  We could not take a chance of our wonderful vendors being left out in the cold at the last minute - and all those who support the show being disappointed.  We are hoping to regroup and be able to do a show in the Spring.

Editor’s Comments

A True Rockhound

I wondered if any of you have a dog that does this. Our dog is named Mo (Mocha). She’s a pound puppy, part chocolate lab, part retriever (we think). Mo is a sweet dog but scared of just about everything. Mo loves rocks. She gets into my dump pile and finds a rock to her liking. Then she plays with it (throws it in the air and pounces on it), chews on it, sleeps with it and then leaves it in the yard. The next time she wants a rock she goes to the pile and gets a new one. Need-less to say, we have to be careful ―mo-ing‖ the lawn. She has also been known to steal rocks from my workshop.
