Having returned from Gaithersburg, I can attest that a three day
(well, 2.5 days) of selling can really burn out vendors. Bob's
choice is to do it from his room and that seems to work for him as he
can lounge and his security is pretty good - though I do fault him
for not taking that extra effort of saving his collection when the
fire alarm sounded. I fully expected to see all those priceless
photos in the parking lot....
If a fire alarm goes off you forget every thing in the room except your wife and yourself (your kids also if they are there) and you use caution as you get out of the building. Having been a volunteer fireman I ask you the question "Have you ever seen the body of someone who was over come by smoke while trying to save other things besides themselves"? Not a pretty thing. So never never fault anyone who gets out when the alarm sounds and leaves his Rembrant painting behind.
Thank you
