    So I hear. I was so temped to get a beccari. But, considering how well yours adjusted, I held off. I still want one, though. <pout> I actually came home with money in my pocket and didn't have to whip out the checkbook or c.c. once because Karen lent me your c.c. #. So, thanks bunches!

    No cc. She's banking my orchid habit, I think, 'til she can get everything totaled up. This might hurt.

    Oh, o.k. that's what she meant by, "I'll add it to Dale's tab, he won't even notice because he's loaded." I assumed it was a c.c. #, so my mistake.

    I was really contemplating getting one MJ. But, Howard Gunn and Karen were shopping with me and I decided I'd rather pay more for an established division some day. Plus, where the hell would I put it anyway. I'm waiting for me electrician friend so g.h. #2 is still non-operational. The good news is we have a temporary, very expensive chicken coop if we need it.

    Well ... er ... just a few ...

    Angraecum veitchii - mature plant in spike
    Angraecum florulentum x eburnum - large plant in spike
    Aerangis Mire (platyphylla x verdickii) - huge plant in spike
    Aerangis Elro (platyphylla x modesta) - huge plant w/ 3 spikes
    Angraecum magdalenae - large plant w/ 3 or 4 basal growths
    Oeniella polystachys - large plants w/ multiple 8" spikes

    Those are the angs I came home with. I touched a gazillion others. Cal Orchid had a nice group of angs & a number of other vendors had some good plants as well.

    This year's crowd was definitely off. We were there pretty much all day Friday & I've never seen such a light crowd. Doesn't bode well for the industry, I'm afraid.

    I was hoping yesterday was better and of course today. I agree the crowd was the lightest I've ever seen on a Friday. I'm sure the rain kept some away, but I hope the vendors come out ahead:<
