It's Ketch-Up Day

 Greetings  Blogger Buds,

How was your weekend and Monday? Our weekend was good. We took the kids to Comic Con, which was a fun experience. The lovely and talented Diane Wolfe of Dancing Lemurs Publishing had a booth set up there and we got to chat for a few minutes. It's the first time I've seen Diane in a few years. Drat on me for not getting a picture of her and the booth. Both looked great. I did get pics of the kids with the Comic Con characters, of course 😀 The grand girl entered the costume contest as you can see in the last photo. There were over eighty costume entrants and some amazing costumes. 

 




AND

The eternal rocks.

That's all folks. Got rocks? Ever gone to Comic Con?

Looks like a fun time at the Con. The calcite looks like babies. My favorite is the Azurite

Beautiful rocks. Comic con looks fun for the enthusiasts

I did go to ComicCon, here in California, with my son. It was a kick! I'd definitely go again if the opportunity arose.

It was so good to see you again! Glad you found Jedi Santa but I missed Chewbacca.

I've never been to Comic-Con, though it looks like a blast (I had to, with all those Jedi warriors roaming around, lol).
The stones are amazing; it's hard to pick a favorite.

D. Wallace Peach said...

What fun. I love the turtle costume. What a hoot! And those rocks are amazing. As a big fan of rocks of all sorts, I would have been glued to the exhibit. Thanks for sharing, Sandra. (And thanks for the Farlander's Law review. Huge hugs).

Sandra Cox said...

Hi Diana, The exhibit literally made my breath catch.
You are most welcome for the review. Love this series. Can't wait to read Reckoning. It's in queue:)
Jacquie, Blast-Jedi warriors. LOL.
Di, Chewbacca was in the vicinity of the stage...Sort of:) I'm so glad I got to see you too;)
Jacqui, Good on you. Maybe some day we can hit one together:)
Christine, So many rocks. So little town:) Comic Con was fun:)
Alex,It was and me too;)
CJ, They do look like babies! The Azurite is beautiful, isn't it?

Sounds like you had fun.

J.P. Alexander said...

Parece que te divertiste. Me gusto la foto de Chebaca te mando un beso.

Birgit said...

You keep having great weekends and that’s excellent! I’m so happy for you. The comicom looks like fun and you get to see how serious some people are. Love the gems and rocks but that one, Calcite??, a little bit phallic. I have a sad, sad mind.

D.L. Finn said...

That looks like so much fun, Sandra. Never seen or noticed, a storm trooper with blood...lol. Grandkids looked great. No, never been to a comic con. Love all the rock pics!!

Jeanie said...

Sandra Cox said...

Hi Jamie, We did;)
J.P. Gotta love Chewbacca.
Birgit, Oh yes. Folks take their con seriously:)
Denise, It was and thanks. The grands are great;)
Jeanie, Aww, thanks.
