Kalgoorly nugget

The Teylers Museum in Haarlem is the Netherlands' first and oldest museum. It opened to the public in 1784. Among their treasures is this gem from Kalgoorly, Australia. Its greatest width is no less than an inch. I took a picture of it because this is how I imagine the nuggets in Jackson's creek would have looked: indeed, as large as a walnut!  

Not yet sold out....!

Rick and Brian at Chapters-Indigo downtown Vancouver last week promoting their (Brian, Rick and Mary's) Slumach and his (Rick's) Timbuktu and Route 66 stories. There are still a few copies left for sale.

Another chance...don't miss it THIS time!

Chapters at Robson and Howe in downtown Vancouver is hosting Rick and Brian Antonson for another book signing, this one on Saturday, October 20th, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. 
Get your signed copy of Route 66 Still Kicks, To Timbuktu for a Haircut, and Slumach's Gold right then and there and ask the author(s) to personalize your copy or copies with a dedication. Of course you don't HAVE to buy anything. Just drop in and meet these two famous authors. The underground garage of Pacific Centre next door charges a low one-time fee for all-day parking on weekends and the SkyTrains stops close by.
