Re: The Gem Trader December drop

I see little similarity in the lidocaine tourmalines; they are different weights, proportions and saturations. I do think he may get two or three stones from the same find at the same time and release them one at a time, I would if it were me. Nothing this month really grabbed me. I did get a violet...

Re: murry is dying

I found a CD from 2004 with lots of pictures of Murry. I know I've already posted plenty, but these were such happy days I hope you all will indulge me. I had just sold $100k of photos to one client in about 20 minutes. The money was wired to my account that day. I paid off my student loans the next...

Re: Colored Stone E-rings/Eyecandy

Re: Oh the weather outside is frightful, but

Sharon, those are really wonderful. The form reminds me a little of some sort of onion shaped pendulous glass ornaments we had when I was a kid. I am sure they will delight you for many years to come!

Re: murry is dying

Thank you all for so much support. Peachster I am so sorry to hear about your golden retriever. It sounds like she had a great life and a wonderful companion in you.

Re: When to Stop Sending Photos as a Christman Card

In real life I am a photographer, so my holiday card is always a photo. It is usually in an edition of between 100 and 125.

Re: murry is dying

Thank you for thinking of me, Sharon. It continues to be a hard thing to live through. I picked up his ashes the other day, then walked a mile and a half home in a cold light rain. That was probably stupid as I've had a nasty cough and rumbly lungs (only at night) since the day before the event two ...

I found a CD from 2003 with lots of nice photos.This one is the position that he used to go to sleep in on me every night and some afternoons if I stretched out for a moment.

Re: murry is dying

It is a gut wrenching and soul freezing thing to end the life of someone who has been a loyal and noble friend.

This morning when I picked him up to take him down from bed he felt so small. He almost slipped through my arms.

I was looking for a few particular pictures, but haven't found them yet. In the mean time here are a few good ones I did find.
