Of Pupptets for Whooping Cranes, Crystals, Fossils, and Collecting Passion
Once again, I paraphrase Eleanor St George from the proposition that doll collectors are not single-minded, perhaps no collector is. Also, dolls and collecting are everywhere. Take that Mr. Fogel at about! Last weekend on Sunday Morning, whooping cranes were being raised with crane puppets as their mothers. A collection of gigantic fossils and crystals protected in a private museum was also featured. The owners want to retire, and want to sell it intact. The husband gave up medical school to pursue them around the world. My mother was rock hound, as am I, and I was spellbound, as much by the passion of this collector as by his magnificent acquisitions. I had to share what I saw, but go on the CBS website, look for Programs, Sunday Morning, March 26, 2017.
