I was there. It was amazing! I emailed the blenko collectors society about identifying a red small piece of glass hoping someone could identify it.

Beautiful glass, are any of the special event glass items still available?
Can I call or purchase on line?

Delois Hogan looked great, we hadn't seen her in some time.
She and Bill both have found the
fountain of youth.
Wonderful and exciting to see Mr bill after so long.

Any news of Rick? We also miss his warm personality

Maybe wrong but I think the Blenko Collectors is history
perhaps the blenko museum can help you identify.

Next time Mr Bill is appearing please let readers know.
I appreciate Mr. Walter and all he is doing for Blenko
but we love Mr Bill and would like to see him again.
