Hey DW~~
I'm doing pretty good, all things considered.
I sure can't complain about the great weather
here, that's for sure.

Well if he went over to the filthy thread I hope he wears
waders so he doesn't get sick.

If I remember correctly (and that's always questionable), he's due back in Denver today. If that's so, he's probably catching up on "other stuff" and can't be bothered with us "common folks". I truly hope that's the case.

The History Channel had a show about that farm in Nebraska where they were selling the new-old cars. Fascinating but, the prices were insane.

A 1960 Chevrolet Apache with ONE mile on it is awesome. However, sitting in a soybean field for 53 years is just not worth $120,000 to me. It was to someone! One of the show's hosts noted about several cars that he could buy a model fully restored and driveable for a fraction of what these cars were going for at auction. Some very unremarkable 4-door cars were going for ridiculous money. I guess the economy has turned around...

Kind of like the antique road show. I always say, good luck getting those numbers. Maybe it has to do with the auction house? Have you seen that PBS show where four specialist go to swap meets throughout the country picking up flea market finds? Afterwards, their finds are put up for auction at an LA auction house, and I swear, half the time they never come in at half the cost the "pickers" paid....I think thats what they call themselves "pickers"

I like the Storage Wars--just buy a bunch of junk and hope you get something worth while. Actually, I know a gal that does that and it's really a win some, lose some kind of deal. The TV show is somewhat "staged" from what I understand.
I have a couple dolls that were my mothers that I'd like to know what they might be worth. Not for selling them, but for insuring them if they have any value other than what I know she paid for them. She always said, they're only worth what someone else would actually buy them for. She just loved her dolls, and had not a vast collection, but maybe a dozen or so very pretty ones that she just wanted.

Good West Coast morning, Rose!

Those experts on "Market Warriors" didn't have a consistent and good track record for sure. Last Monday, PBS followed Antiques Roadshow with a new series, Geneaology Roadshow.

I've seen storage wars (mom has cable) I like the Bev Hill silver haired fox who drives the Mercedes(?) He always gets screwed but he seems to have a good attitude about it

Before this stuff became well known, many artist friends supported themselves knowing what was what. One acquaintance (back in the 60's) started collecting Navaho rugs. He's made plenty as an artist, but those rugs bought beach front property. lol

Re dolls - If you have an auction house near you, make a call and see if they have a day set out for appraisals. Many auction houses do.

Old "new" cars sitting out in the elements for years, or untended in old buildings, has to have all sorts of condition issues.

Of course, car makers and salesmen for a century have banked on much irrationality in car purchasing.

Good afternoon to you! can't sleep in late even on a Sunday without being woken up by all these wild parrots around here. Urban legend has it that they're escapes from a local nursery- hardware-lumber yard that went up in smoke back in the 40's. Huge numbers now as they make their was feeding on Camphor trees. Ye gads they're loud

I thought you were kidding about Genealogy Roadshow....for some reason I got it into my head that you wrote 'Geriatric Roadshow'

The risk/reward seems really skewed here. A pretty blonde from Australia bought a 4-door '57 Chevy for- a lot of money. I think she said she took three flights and rented a car to get to Nebraska. The show host asked what I thought was a dumb question. He asked how she was going to get the car back to Oz. She didn't know. I really thought she would have planned that far ahead.

On the "Fast & Loud" I watch they've had guys from Australia and Sweden(!) who are pretty regular buyers so, I appreciate that there is a market outside the US. Even with it being a 4-door and after shipping she might make some money. But, she said she was a "Grease" fan and I suspect she's going to keep it.

TRUE!

Great concept though. The man had a dealership and held back cars that didn't sell or that he liked. It would have been better if he at least stored them in a barn, reasonably protected from the elements like the urban myths about other classics.

A world in the U.S.A. with wild parrots I do not know, but for viewing documentary/independent films on PBS.

Well, for a guy who is A noted observer, last night was the first full episode I have ever seen of the show, "Breaking Bad". I enjoyed it and, as far as I'm concerned, everything was wrapped up quite nicely. Good show!

I have concluded that Cutler is the newest version of a QB years ago for the Colts, Jeff George. On the field; strong 'gun' arms and dubious decisions. All-around need of attitude adjustment.
