GOING HOME – Maybe it will be There

The 31 Gang [ Daryle, Cindy, Clarke and Chris ] will start their race with you tomorrow. I will be leaving for Owensboro, Kentucky, at noon to attend my wife’s reunion. Along the route, I will be searching for that special treasure that will launch us from the starting gate toward that pot of gold at the end of our journey. I will be reporting back to you Monday night on whether we were successful or not. There is no doubt in my mind that by then you will have emailed me many stories of fabulous finds.

During next four days I will be making every effort to use the knowledge that has served me so well to search out that first step in the plan that we are beginning together. Pottery, Art Glass and Paintings will be my targets, but don’t be surprised if I return with something totally different than those items. That is what makes the treasure hunt so exciting. You never know what you will be returning with. I will travel with my books, jewelers loop, tape measure and all the other things that might come in handy in the search.

The best part about this venture is that if I return empty handed after four days, it will only heighten my desire to go back out there on Tuesday. Remember, as I said before, this isn’t a sprint.

I have been talking to members all day who are just beginning to get the treasure fever. What are my paintings worth? Does this crock or bowl have any value? I have my dad’s old campaign butons — are they worth selling? Can you feel the excitement building?

Already, I can’t wait to return from my trip so that we can talk. I have prepared blogs to be posted while I am gone, and if you have any questions please email me, because I will be checking in. I have been a little disappointed on the number of comments on the blogs, so let me hear from you. This keeps me motivated. Thanks for all your support and patience as we move forward.
