Lisa,

I live in the Dallas area and am planning on attending. I may not make it on Friday due to other appointments, but will be out there on Saturday and hopefully on Sunday.

Howdy ya'll from Texas! I am in Dallas and we are in the second day of the convention. Last night was the grand opening with the members only show. This morning was the Collectors Swap Meet and we just finished a 2 hour show event. Seminars are this afternoon and auction tonight. More tomorrow and wrap up Sunday! I am already tired....

The news is the convention has smaller attendance this year. About 22 dealers in the showroom. There are not many solid collectors here as before either! We miss you! It has been great seeing some of my solid buddies and especially nice to meet my long time internet friend, Sophie Miara from Paris. We have become fast friends and will be visiting her in Paris later this year I hope. There are also not as many solids available as last year sad.gif But, I did see color pics of the new Niemans exclusives as well as the general distribution! The exclusives are all GREAT! Lorna Scruggs from Niemans had the pics and gave me a copy. I will get with Lisa and see if I can fax to her. I will let the pics speak for themselves. Lorna told me Bob Conte was the designer again...Hallelujah! rolleyes.gif

On Sunday morning, I am hosting a roundtable on Estee Lauder. I will give you another update when I get back to California on Wednesday.

Bye ya'll!

Good old Woody, we can always rely on you. I still wish I was there though.
Katita, see you in Vegas. Can't wait. Must save up for Reston next year.

Can't wait to meet you too, Nancy. Bring a bottle of your favorite single malt scotch. My favorite over here is Oban. Yum! It would probably be regarded as rot gut to you! laugh.gif wink.gif
