The "Keller" show in Orange County seemed a victim of summer vacation: not a ton of customers, and by 11:30 it was pretty dead except for vendors visiting each other and the same half-dozen vultures circling & waiting for dirt cheap bargain prices, and there were plenty of great prices already, so why try to screw 'em down to a few bucks? (can you tell that I had a couple of a-wipes low-balling me in that irritatingly ingratiating way?)

I did have a comically tragic episode with a plastic tub that worked its way open on the way down, so the instructions for a Academy M7 Priest and maybe a couple of parts are somewhere on the I-5 southbound.

The same faces mostly (and no Jeff Garrity!?) many cleaning out their workshops(?), and I got wondering how guys are going to be absent at the next show, but someone else will be selling off their dusty collection on behalf of their widows (or the guy that owns their storage locker).

On the good side, I picked a couple of hard to find Rising Decal sheets from the guy next to me (thanks Scott!)

So, who else went from the Southern California area, which with millions of warm bodies, you'd think there'd be more modelers.
