Yesterday revolved around going to a meeting of Dungeonmaster's management, as it were. Much was hashed out, but there's details that have to be worked on...so much to do.

We followed that up with a stop at The Last Grenadier, a game shop on Hollywood Way. They've got so much stock, but much of it looks ... outdated? The Gateway convention reminded me that the War House in Long Beach still exists, and the items they offered at the con suggests that the store is doing better than TLG. No time for a road trip anytime soon, but does anyone reading this shop at the War House?

After Gary passed away, Aero Hobbies was bought by his employee. Last time I was in it, I didn't recognise anyone nor they me, but it was well-stocked enough to bring acquisitional glee to my son's eye.

My daughter and her friends asked to go to the War House last Sunday and my husband drove-- I'll report back.

I bought my first D&D dice and my first figures special for my characters at Aero Hobbies in the late 70s, at its previous venue. It's been years since I visited them in Santa Monica, as well, and I have to admit that I'd forgotten about them.

After the demise of the proprietor, most places don't survive. We had a store (All-Star Games) in Diamond Bar whose two owners died within a few weeks of each other, and when their senior employee tried to make it work, it failed. A real pity; they were a pretty good store.

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...
