    KK –

    From what I've heard, “room-hopping” is the first order of business on the first night, so we might not hear anything until tomorrow! Even then, they may not remember! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Hopefully, we'll get some information by tomorrow evening. <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ />

    KK,

    I am planning to go to the sale and exhibition on Saturday, where I will meet up with Nancy.

    I will post more later to let you know how things went.

    Take care, Jeanette <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    An IPBA udpate…trouble at the show…..Angela and Nancy were shopping together and ran across an Ivory Panda priced at $50….they both grabbed for it and got into a major cat fight……they were rolling around on the floor when Lorraine walked in the room….she started beating them with her walking stick to break the two up them up and wound up busting the panda!!!!! When that happened, Nancy and Angela went wild and started chasing Lorraine down the hallway………When Lorraine turned the corner, she ran smack dab into Phyllis and knocked her across the hall. The police are on the way and the ambulance has been called…….more later! <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    Update 5:30PM EST: Seems like poor Phyllis was knocked out when she went flying across the hall. While Lorraine and I were waiting for help, Angela and Nancy snuck back down to the room where the panda has been for sale. It was in pieces, beaten to a pulp by Lorraine's walking stick as she tried to break up the fight between the two crazed solid collecting women. The seller just stood there looking dumbfounded. “What happened?” asked the seller..”you two were fighting over a $50 solid?” About that time another IPBA member said….”hey, didn't I see one of those on Ebay? I think it sold for over $4,000!”…….

    The seller looked a little green in the face. Then she turned to Angela and Nancy, who by this time were trying to sneak back into the crowd of onlookers gathered outside the room…….the next thing you know, the seller lunges toward Angela and Nancy who are now running down the hallway and entering the stairwell with the seller in hot pursuit. That is the last anyone has seen of any of them……

    We need reinforcements! Jeanette, get here soon!!! <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    Good morning everyone….yes, we are having fun <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />
    The show has been good! I would say not as many solids as last year – maybe they are being held for Vegas! Still, a lot of solid interest. Have seen no store or Lauder reps yet, so we have heard nothing about the new releases or seen pics of any kind. Today is the first day of public admission to the show, so maybe there will be more activity today.

    I think everyone has a solid or two to go home with and a story to tell <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    P.S. Still no sign of Angela and Nancy <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
