Every year, SHusband does a display for the annual Buffalo Geological Society's Rock, Gem and Mineral show. There is a theme for the show, and sometimes he follows the theme, but for the past 4 or 5 years, he has made up his own theme. Over the years: Specimens of Sicily, Indian Trap Rocks, Romania Rocks, Testing of Minerals with simple chemical tests to determine their consistency, and this year, and easier one to manage: "Vintage Rock and Minerals Sets".

This display consisted of three different very old collections of sample rocks/minerals with their identifying labels/information.

All were from the 1940's, and one special one was a very limited collection made specifically for Boy Scouts. Since this is the 100th Anniversary of Boy Scouting in America, this was a very timely addition to the display.

He didn't win any prizes this year, but to me is my own special "Rocky".
