Subject: LapDigest News for Issue No. 51 - Wed 8/27/97

Today's issue has one submission. You have NOT been sending
in queries. Why not? Was the message about my life such a
downer? Is there nothing you want to know? There is a lot
of talent in our little club and they can answer almost
anything! Please continue to send those questions in! When
you don't send in queries, I have to scrounge to make a
decent issue and I don't have as much time to do that as I
used to. So please help me out, gang, I can't do it
alone!!!

And remember to add the words "-- non-commercial republish
permission granted --" at the end of every item submitted.
This gives permission for others to use your item for
non-commercial purposes. Then clubs may legally pick up the
items and reprint them in club bulletins, and thus your words
may have wider circulation and influence. Please use those
four words at the end of each item you submit.

Directory was more in the order of $60 then the $45 we cited
in Issue 50.

Subject: BIO: Lois & Bill Pattillo


Lois and I do quite a few of different areas of the lapidary
arts. We do cabochons, silver work, collecting in several
different areas, cutting, polishing and general lapidary
hobbies. We have several sizes saws, faceting equipment,
Diamond Gem grinder and related equipment. We collect as a
hobby and enjoy the hobby, very much. We have a unique
collection of rocks that look like food, that we exhibit at
our show and several other show, throughout the year. We
have been a member of the Gulf Coast Gem and Mineral
Society for about 20 years.
