   Susie P...... so very sorry. I have broken more salts with other salts. Aggravating.

   Debi, I'm with what Joan said about the H & J project. Can't you have a page of the type of salt after the official H & J page? Like H & J 'Rounds With Flat Tops'; next page 'rounds with flat tops' non H & J. etc. ??? Possible ???

I was on the local channel 10 news tonight - I was the closing comment - I even looked good - Heck they don't call it the Salon of Beauty for nothing - Been going there since I was a child and the owner has been doing my hair for a zillion years - Happy for her - sad for all of us old ladies out in the cold bad hair day world -

Mary, your diamond looks like a "Jack", the others look like Kings. There are subtle differences among all pictured. Some have weapons, some don't. Mine seems strange because the tiny club next to the king doesn't match the heart shape of the salt.

Joan: I think we probably should just stick with the H&J pages as they are in the book. Easiest way to go. I just don't want all the work to go to waste when people posted pictures and descriptions of all those other round salts. It's mostly a lot of variations on plain round ones and the ones with those little collar bases. Not much on maker information though since we have no idea.

Next up would be the first page with oval shapes. Whenever you guys are ready with pictures let me know and we'll get started.

Hey Nancy, Did you happen to notice that your heart shaped salt has a "club" in the left corner instead of a heart like Mary's and Susie's? Also my diamond is shaped differently from Susie's and my king has a left facing profile while all the others are facing straight on. Looks like we have a couple different versions of these bridge sets!!

Debi, When it comes to the completed H&J project pages, I can tell you that I use them a lot more often than I use the book. It's a lot easier to find what you are looking for, they have more updated information and of course the pictures show more detail. Personally, I hate large PDF files that you have to scroll through to find what you are looking for and as such only use them as a last resort. And having an individual picture and information page for each salt is wonderful and I'd hate to see that change. As far as working on the rest of the H&J pages, I would vote that we continue what we have been doing and "try" to finish out the individual salts, as best we can, on the remaining pages. If we start moving H&J numbers around in order to group them into categories it may become cumbersome and confusing to users, especially if they have the book and are using the site for better pictures and more information...just my opinion...after all, that was the reason we decided to undertake this project to begin with. And I know that there are a ton of salts not in the book, but I don't think any of us will live long enough to get to every one...lol!! I can tell you that since I have been downsizing and selling my more common salts on eBay I have run across quite a few newcomers to the hobby and they seem to be interested in where I get my information from. I always refer them to the H&J project pages (even before the book), especially when its a question about a salt on a page that we have already completed...and they love it!! So I think there may be more people checking out those pages than you think! For some reason I find newcomers are reluctant to post on the site...I'm not sure why?? Maybe they think they have nothing to offer, so are just try to learn from what we post! I wish we could find a way to get more of them involved! I think I need to go back to writing the site information on my packing slips...that may help! Anyway...those are "my" thinking out loud thoughts...lol!!

Big Sis, So happy to hear that Junior has gained weight since his last vet visit. Two ounces is a really good amount for a cat his size. And I would take it as a good sign that even with all of his problems his body is still capable of gaining weight!

I have the diamond king intaglio and I agree that there is a lot of detail to the etching of the piece and it is made of higher quality clear glass (very smooth in your words). Unfortunately, mine has lost most of its enamel work and therefore doesn't show the true beauty of the workmanship.

I'm still trying to decide if other round with flat tops not shown in H&J should just be a PDF file or if each salt should have an individual picture to click on, or if I should add them at all. That would be a whole lot more pictures but much easier to spot what you might be looking for. One thing I dislike about H&J is how other round with flat top salts are included on other misc. pages. If we wanted to have salts grouped by types, then some of those salts would have to be pulled off other pages. If we go strictly by the H&J book, we will obviously never get the whole book done with input by just several people. There are so many other salts not pictured in H&J. My main focus is on individual salts, but are they even that popular any more with collectors? Comment or not...I'm just thinking out loud...or rather typing out my thoughts. And we never even got to the round salts with uneven tops as far as posting those not shown in H&J. I think it's too big of a project to try and catalog every open salt. In the end, who cares? If we get a salt we can't identify we post it here and ask.

I recently got this set of card intaglios - I have never seen a set where the glass is the shape of the cards - except the diamond - This glass is also not the usual intaglio glass - very smooth - What is intriguing me is the detail of the intaglio bases - Each represents one king of a suit - I apologize for the picture - I have been taking them in every light and background and apparently have not hit the right one yet - Jane - Don - Susie - I am sure you all have ones like this - To me so very different - I know there are some with camels that are multi-colored - but the workmanship on the clothing on these gents is just incredible -

Junior Cat Kern goes in tomorrow for a booster shot for his worms - He will also get weighed again - Fat prayers now being accepted ---

My goal at this point is to stop selling on eBay the end of August - Hopefully I will be pretty far down and what is left will be direct sales or club sales - Not sure how well this is going to work - but at least it is a goal - My shelves still need some space made - and of course what is in my office and in the garage - Okay now here is the unbelievable part - I have removed all of my saved searches - Hopefully if I have to type something in I will think about it a bit - I am telling you this so if I get crazier on the board - It is basically buying withdrawal only -

I was getting the error message too. Hoped it would work itself out and it did. Figures, it was another thing going wrong on an already bad tech day for me. Couldn't download an upgrade of Paint Shop Pro that I bought last night, and AOL email was giving me error messages too. Arghhhh!!

Joan: Thank you for the measurement. I will add that too. I pulled out all three large drawers of round with flat top salts today and I could only find the one salt. So again, it stumps me why I have the word taller written inside.

Happy to see the site working again...was getting an error message all afternoon.

Debi, The height shows 1-1/16” on my calipers. Thanks for updating the H&J pages with the information.

Judy, Thank you for posting your picture. Debi did say that it was your original picture on the H&J page. But I thought that you may have duplicates of the same salt and could possibly capture the difference in height better than my pictures did. You always take such nice pictures that show more details, especially when it comes to clear salts.

Jan, Please don’t worry about finding your salt(s) and taking pictures. I think Debi has this one wrapped-up! Thanks anyway!

I was doing some rearranging and it occurred to me that when I'm buying at a flea markets/ antique shows/ malls I tend to have a theme that day, once it was shoes, once intaglios once novelities, the last time it was hourglass shapes. Anyone else do that? It's not intentional, believe me!

I don't know Lynda. Never had much interest in them because they were expensive. I have a couple colors but that's about it. I did look up an old picture of a display of Steuben salts and there are no swirled ones in it. But the bottom of yours looks like it is better glass. Someone who is more into art glass might know.

Judy & Jan, If you happen to have a H&J 2567 handy, can you please take a couple of pictures and post them so we can compare it with the pictures Debi and I posted of this salt. We are trying to figure out if there were two versions. I found another "good" picture of one on eBay (Item #222887615919). To me it looks similar to your salt Debi, except that it seems to have that overhanging lip/unpolished rim edge I was talking about. Thanks in advance ladies for your help!

Thank you all for your birthday wishes. My sons have a habit of sneaking up behind me and lifting me. They started it when they were in college. I have many photos of this action. This photo was taken 2 years ago on my 80th birthday. As you can see, they almost dropped me. They got spooked when they heard my bones creaking. Afraid they would break me! Anyway, now that I'm 82, I doubt they will try it again. Although, I trust them and I'm game. Maybe in Cape Cod this June when the grandsons can help.

Morning all - I saw the silver plated salt set on Antique Road Show last night. They covered them really quickly.

I remember reading that glass manufacturers would change parts on the molds, i.e. rims, and reproduce the piece. Looks like Cambridge may have been very good at this. We just completed H&J 2687 were "Marjorie" is posted. the Cambridge salt was produced with different heights.

I think the circles or bull's eyes look smaller on mine, but as Jan said, the camera is quite finicky and will magnify whatever is closest to the lens. Side by side pictures are not easy unless they are exactly the same distance and you really center them. Tomorrow I will look better and see if I have an even shorter salt. I never (that I can remember) got rid of one salt even if it was slightly different. If I wrote taller in this one, then the other I have (or had) must have been shorter.

On molds ... I don't know about a heavily used one producing different sizes over time, but sometimes they were reworked if they were getting rough inside. That doesn't always mean the pattern was changed a lot. And you have to think it through that if a mold is refined by taking a bit more away inside, then it will produce a larger salt. That might account for being taller or larger detail like the circles.

Oh, the pictures on the H&J Project page are Judy's so maybe tomorrow we will hear from her.

Lynda, I'm so sorry. I meant to acknowledge your post in one of my posts, but I got busy taking pictures and I forgot. I think you theory as to why a salt may get bigger over time may be a good one. However, this salt seems to be taller, or shorter, in just one area under the rim depending on which one you are looking at. So I don't know if that could be attributed to mold use...but I guess anything is possible when it comes to pouring hot glass into molds!!

Debi, Your salt looks more like the H&J and catalog pictures to me with the arches closer to the rim or in your words the top above the arches is shorter.
  
Okay…these are lined up size-by-side and still very hard to see that the left of is just a tiny bit taller than the right. And the arches on the right one are a tiny bit closer to the rim. I tried every which way to Sunday to pick up the extra rim lip glass that makes it wider, but it doesn’t show up, and the top down view shows them as basically being the same size…will post that picture next…very frustrating!

Was also wondering who the larger picture images came from and maybe they have both of the different sizes as well? Also, you must have had doubts or previous conversations about the size of this salt being taller than H&J’s or why would you have that noted?? I think this may turn out to be one of those “we’ll never know for sure” unless a catalog picture should surface at a later day!

Here’s a thought about the yellow salts Mary spied on the bay: the apparent size variation can be due to camera angle aka camera operator! Every photo I took was slightly askew when I edited them, but was unaware of it until then. Even a fraction of an inch difference in in placement side by side can be magnified in a photo. Long story short—it’s just plain difficult to know it all from photos.

AHA - a pat on the back by Little Sis - I am walking tall - well as tall as I can - but my heart is filled with glee - Glad my serious moment for this month is over and I can continue to just dumb it along - I love reading what you all do to get information - Some day - I want to have enough time and a solid desire to do some research on my very own salts - I have a burning desire to do so - but not sure I have the follow through like you all do - Perhaps my lot in life is to sit back and marvel at what others do - drink Pepsi and eat popcorn --and buy a new salt weekly -------------------

See What Debi said about the eBay salt pictures I posted - I never knew that - I am so dumb - but am coming to the conclusion I don't have to know everything or even anything - Just be willing to "listen" and learn --

Please no tests - I hate tests - I flunk tests - No tests --

Mary: Are your two yellow salts the same diameter? The difference in height of those could be because of firing them to turn white. If you look at the H&J Project for H&J 569 it looks like it came in three sizes. But there's also a difference between the pale blue one and pink one next to it if you look at the flat area above the flower area. There are just some things we will never know.

Debi, Looks like I was typing while you were posting…lol!! I’ll try to take a better side by side picture. My pomade jar is a tiny bit taller…1/16” and the rim is also a bit wider. Again, will take better pictures and post them next.

Well Big Sis, I am truly impressed by your “serious moment” and excellent input!! You are so right that many small items were indeed used for multiple purposes and the patterns/molds altered slightly to accommodate the new “purpose” or “double life” for the item. And as Lynda has so graciously pointed out with her pictures of pomade/vanity jars, most had smaller, flat rims added to the tops of known salt molds/patterns to allow for a lid to be put in place. Not many of these appeared in H&J however and I think I have only spotted a few (i.e., #3046 & 3047) just to point out a couple. But the harder ones to spot as “not salts” in H&J maybe the ones with the flat tops that originally had lids (mostly glass) with lips that held them in place…like H&J 2575 which I do believe is a pomade jar. And these are typically described as maker unknown, circa 1900’s. Besides salts I also collect Victorian Silver Novelty Items/“Smalls” circa 1870-1910 that include items such as match safes, stamp boxes, wax seals, sewing needle holders, buttonhooks, etc. and pomade/vanity jars with sterling lids (see attached picture). So I was interested to see if anyone knew more about H&J 2567 also being made as a pomade jar….possibly backed up with a picture in a catalog or whether anyone thought that the larger images may in fact be a pomade jar (like the one I have) and not the salt version in the H&J and catalog pictures.

   O K Joan, Debi,.....just a thought from one who has no knowledge but..... how bout this theory on the Electric. One company makes that salt, uses the mold over and over. As time goes by due to wear and tare, the mold changes a bit by getting worn on the inside and salt comes out bigger because of it.,....huh, huh, not a bad hypothesis 😆

Joan: I'm pretty sure I follow what you say about the two slightly different ELECTRIC salts. I looked in the U. S. Glass Catalog but there's no pomade jar shown. The PDF copies are in pretty rough shape and many of the US Glass pattern numbers aren't in it. I think whoever was copying it didn't copy all of it. My question is...Is it your opinion that the taller one is not the salt? Are they both the same diameter? Your picture looks like the one on the left is larger but it might just be the picture. I just went and looked at mine. I wrote inside it "2567 Taller" but it's the only one I have so I don't know how I knew it was taller. I would not put much stock in catalog images for preciseness. The rim shape doesn't match the real thing at all in my opinion. They look a bit tapered but the salts are vertical. If you can send me or post a better picture with them side by side to show the difference in height I will add the info to the page. I copied the picture with the lid on.

Do not be afraid - Serious moment to begin - I am okay - Just following a smart train of thought of my more mature but years younger Little Sis -

I have for a long time thought that "salts" have had multiple uses I think I started to think this way with the double basket salt which was also sold with a small set of shakers - So if the maker could have a double standard for the basket - Then why couldn't other things have double lives also - The usual pomades are easy to spot because of the rims - the one you are showing does not denote a lid while standing on its own - "Smalls" were quite popular years ago and if a lid got broken - the base was not thrown away as it might possibly be done today - The canoes - Toothpicks in the beginning - perhaps - but just as many attributed to salts - Perhaps things became salts because their lids were broken and perhaps lids were put on salts because pomades were as popular -
Perhaps the piece that you have two different sizes for were simply made on different days - or perhaps even farmed out to another glass maker to be done - So many unanswered questions and so many rationalizations depending on what you are collecting -
I do love the one with the paneling more when it has a lid than when it is by itself - A bit of class and style - Just like the right hat - Thanks for sharing those LS and for all the information you gave us with them - Wouldn't it be marvelous if we could do a version of "You were there" and go back to the hay days of the glass industries and the actual time salts - of all materials - were at their most popular -- I seldom whish to relive the past - but there are parts of the past I would actually like to live -

Salt/jar on left is the one that came with the lid and is similar to the larger images on Debi’s H&J 2567 page. The right salt’s arches are closer to the rim and more like the H&J and catalog pictures.

Okay…will try this one last time!
The second one is H&J 2567 described on Debi’s completed page as U.S.Glass No.15038, c. 1896, aka Electric; Texas Bull’s Eye and has the catalog pictures, for both an individual and a master salt, documenting their existence. Now, please bear with me while I try to describe my train of thought on this one. If you look at the catalog pictures and the H&J picture (top left on Debi’s page) and compare them to the larger full image pictures there seems to be a difference in the height of the top flat portion of the salts. Look how close the arch is to the top of the rim on the H&J and catalog pics and then look at where the arch is located to the rim on the large images. .It is subtle/slight, maybe 1/16” difference between the two and may just be the angle they were taken at, but it is noticeable. I have two of these. One looks like the catalog and H&J pictures with the shorter top, arch closer to the rim and the other has the taller top with the arch farther from the rim, like the two larger pictures. The taller top version also has just the tiniest lip (some may say roughness or excess glass), maybe 1/32” overhanging the outside rim that can be felt, but is difficult to see. The one with the taller top and overhanging lip came with a brass lid that snaps tightly over that lip, whereas the lid does not snap tight on the shorter topped salt version without the lip. Here’s my question…Do you think this pattern piece was made in two versions? One as a vanity/pomade jar with a taller top portion and a rim lip to accommodate the jar’s lid…that looks like the one in the larger pictures. And a second version with the lower top portion and no rim lip…like the ones in the H&J and catalog pictures. Was the pomade jar’s higher top and overhanging lip ground down/off to make it into the “salt” version? Or did the salts come first, being there is a master size also, and the elevated top and rim lip added at a later date to create a pomade jar with a lid? Another mystery to solve!!! I’m wondering if a vanity/pomade jar can be found in this pattern in any of the U.S. Glass catalogs???

People did not eat way back when salts were actually used - People dined - A fully dressed table must have taken the servants hours to properly set - and to be set for the meal being served that night - I cannot see a lot of our salts that are catalogue proven being used in the manner in which I eat and salt my food - I also would not want to hear a harpsichord playing while I am chowing down on a Sombrero's carne asada wet burrito with extra salsa - But then they probably had whole pig with one red apple - Well there I go again - No information given - no help given - but a lot of words and space abused -

My compliments and thanks to Debi, Judy & Jan on their stellar work and super-sonic speed on completing the most recent H&J page. By the time I located some of the salts needed and started to take pictures you already had everything posted with great pictures and amazing research. All I can say is you ladies “rock” and are way too organized for me…lol!

But while searching through my clear glass salts I did run across a couple of interesting pieces from pages that we have already completed. H&J does describes them as salts but they may have been made/used for different purposes, as well as salts, and would appreciate everyone’s views.

First one is H&J 2575 described as maker unknown, circa 1900. I have one that has a lid (check out the pattern on the top of the lid and the bottom of the salt) and my thought is that it may have originally been made to be a vanity/pomade jar and ended up in H&J because the lid was lost. The bottom “jar” is the right size for a salt measuring 1” high by 1-3/4” in diameter so I can see why it would be identified as such. What do you guys think?

  O K, what I think I know about that salt....Jane just sold hers on ebay and I remember???...maybe some of what she said.

  Gillander silver plate, Cambridge swan. Hers came with clear glass and acid washed swan. She also had hers resilvered. I tried to win hers but didn't manage. Mine really needs resilvering. I like the whimsey of the piece.

  What confuses me is trying to see this on a table and people trying to get salt out of it.

The soda glass came about because they needed the lead for bullets during the Civil war, even though it was being developed earlier, maybe by the time of the Mexican war?

Mary, I used to think Sandwich glass was a special type of glass, but it turns out that it is just glass from the Sandwich Glass Co. Some are oodles olden, so very wantable. I need to brush up on glass history but seems like flint glass was first, the kind that rings when you ping it. Lacies then the old clunkers kind of overlap, then soda glass came into the picture about then, cheaper to make and some other benefit. Help, somebody fill us in here!

Hers was pink, about the color of pink from the late 50s & 60S. most everyone thought there should be something sitting on top.

I am thinking that most of the masters which are similar to the ones you have shown were circa 1870 - 1890 and most if not all are pressed glass - The Lacy period was 1825 - 1850 - So the Lacy salts would have come before your master salts - That is one of the problems with the old master salts - unless you can find them in a catalog - and a catalog from the manufacturer - not a seller of wares - It is difficult to place maker and age - Most of them will show up as a circa date and not a definite date - It is like the OCTAGON pattern - Very popular at the time so every company known to the glass world made there own version of them - I must have had 10 different examples of that salt and each one slightly different in height and the cross lines varied - This was in both the individual and the master - If a "pattern" - and I use that word loosely - was found to be popular - It was a free for all to produce it - There are several that fall in this category so even looking at a picture in a catalog - if it only shows the OCTAGON from a side view - Your guess is as good as anyone's on which one you have in your hand - Sorry I cannot be of specific help on your salts - but for your question of which came first the Lacy or the Master - my best guess would be the Lacy -

Well, Mary, they each weigh about a pound, and don't seem to have any mold marks, so are they blown in mold or just hand pressed? The more I look, the more questions I have.
Dori we aren't trying to be mean, but you could qualify your statements with, I think,and maybe, or I haven't? Nobody has all the answers, and we're more like a family here. Course I guess there's always one member of a family that gets under everyone's skin LOL

I came across this going through a book the other day. Apparently is a pattern named RETORT aka OWL made by Dalzell, Gilmore & Leighton Co. It says there is an individual and master salt in the pattern. Does anyone have any idea what those salts look like? Or does anyone have either the ind. or master?

I found 3 full catalogs of Mosser glass while working on the last H&J page and added them in the USA catalog section.

Sue: I have the salts, I was just referring to the catalog pages picturing some of them. The entire page is in Ed Bowman's work on Heisey but the salts are way too small to extract and put on the info pages. I'll have to go through my Heisey Books and see if any are there, although that is usually the first thing I do when I get a new book is check for reprinted catalog pages.

Jan & Judy: You guys did the heavy lifting with all the pictures and measurements supplied. I just put it all together. I included the SUNRAY salt on the page where the ashtray was shown because I didn't find it anywhere else in H&J. Speaking of that...I have all those pictures of other round salts many people provided that are not shown in H&J. Even though we may not have a lot of information on them maybe I should add a section of round with flat tops not shown in H&J. What do you think? I'll have to see how that goes with the first few and add them so you can see what I mean.

I can’t believe the H&J page is done!! Debi has put in an enormous amount of time and effort into that project and this whole site. There is SOOOOOO much here that every salt collector, from newbie to oldbie (yes I just made that up) can enjoy and learn from. Thank you so much, Debi!!!!

Susie,We haven't had much snow, but its hard to tell. The wind is blowing like crazy, blizzard warnings for the whole day. We haven't lost any power but there has been outages all over. Interstate is closed,and so are some of the secondary roads. Glad I don't have to go anywhere today. Thanks for asking, hope it blows itself out before it gets to you, the south is getting the front part of this storm.

Next page is done and up in the H&J Project. I think we got this one done in record time. Big thanks to Jan and Judy for all of their pictures. I had to take pictures of only a few which gave me a lot more time for getting the research done and hunting down catalog pictures. Still have a couple Heisey ones to find from books or somewhere else. Ed Bowman has them on his Heisey page but they are scaled down too small for me to get the salts off the page and have them look good on the pages. They blow up and are too digital and scrambled to recognize. I tried that.

Have not seen the hunt scene in red Don - so send away - Hey we just might blow Kent and the readers away - all by our own little loner somes - Especially when we get Jane's contributions - Okay so for whatever the next issue is after this one already in production we will be showing red intaglios and the classic scene we started out with - Obviously I do not remember and too many posts back to refresh the faded mind -

Just took a picture of the square one, and discovered two dark Amethyst in the rectangular shape(one large, one small) AND I discovered two in a "rounded rectangular shape" with a cut design around the edges! Took pictures, and will TRY to send them when us two "wizards" find time to read our Computer Man's directions! The Red that I find is square and has the "Hunt Scene" in the bottom. Again took photo, and will send if you haven't seen it!

I'm not sure why I was never tempted to start collecting intaglios. I have some golf ones, some field hockey I thought were golf, one round one with red rhinestones, a larger pretty ice blue with fancy rim and that half round one. That's it.

This picture shows the difference in the shades of cobalt blue...also comes in a turquoise blue shown in my previous picture. This scene also comes in two different sizes. These blue ones and my previous multi-colored ones are all the smaller size.

Wow - if you have one in a square shape definitely need a picture - So far we do have several colors and three shapes/sizes - The larger one - smaller one and a square - Kent is going to think I have lost my mind when I turn this one in - but like Don said - think it will be fun to see how many colors and shapes of intaglios we can come up with - One or two at a time - I know we do not have enough years left to do them all - but we can have fun with them as long as we can -

I do not think there has to be a 12 page singular article in every newsletter - Nice to have information articles - don't get me wrong - but I think something fun - like this - where we have a possibility of getting other people involved too is essential to the newsletter being for all of us -

besides the club newsletters are back to big articles from their presentations rather than sharing them with the national one - So we3 need filler - and our own collections are great filler - don't ya think -

I know you are all going to agree with me because none of you want my co-editor job - lol lol lol

Just checked my "stock" of Intaglios in this shape and design. I have 4 examples, the Black is Black, no sign of Red, and also have in Pink, Lt. Green and Lt. Amber. I have the smaller size in Royal Blue and Dark Amber. Also have a Crystal with this design, in a square shape. I don't THINK I have this design in a holder, but it will be much harder to check! The ones in holders are on the top 2 shelves of my Hall Cabinet, and will require effort I don't have right now! The others are in a drawer of my "Printer's Cabinet, and just had to open drawer. It will be FUN to see how many different colors they made!

Susie - I think your deep red is between my red red and my black red - Please send pictures direct to me also - we have a good start on this and after we have one running - then we can pick the next picture for the next article - Just a fun one hopefully we can garner some outside pictures also - I am not into baskets - even with intaglios in them - but yours are so pretty Susie --

Thanks Jane - always have to go to you for answers on intaglios --

Don - we can figure away for you to participate also if you want

WOW! It looks like "Puff" has taken on a life of his own! He truly is a "Piece of Art" but Dragon's aren't my "thing"! I would have "passed him up" because of the cost. Speaking of "cost" I just "passed" on a New partial upper plate, that was going to cost over $18,000!! I decided on a "reasonable" replacement for $1,700! At 77, I couldn't see living long enough to get my money's worth(but it WAS permanent!) I love your new Intaglio's Mary I have a Black one like that, but my red like that was Opaque Red, not bright Red. It got broken, but I have two other Ruby Intaglio's, in different shapes.

You ladies are as crazy as I am - Have been away too long - Okay we need to figure this out so everyone gets a chance to have Puff for a visit - I will get him some traveling clothes - Hat and good suitcase and we will figure the best route to include everyone - Maybe we can get one place in each stop that is the best - Pork - Beef or Corn (on the Cob) and of course the Jersey Shore - Kangaroos and Panda Bears - Puff and I are pretty excited about this journey - Indy race way - Disney something in Florida and Toledo Ohio so he can meet family -- Lovin it already

In all seriousness - I truly had no idea of his heritage and rarity - I just knew I loved him and had to have him - Great to get brought up to date about him and the company that made him - You all have so much knowledge - perhaps each with a specific area - but whatever you know - bits and pieces or a book full - always willing to share it - I admire all of you and thanks for always coming through

Breakfast in bed-check. Crisp clean linens- check!! And I beg to differ, Miss Linda, but Iowa has the best steak!! Where do you think all that corn goes??!! In any case, Mary, I would be carrying Puff around in my pocket for a very long time, just so I could pull him out and admire him every minute or two!! He looks excited at the prospect of a road trip!!! Please let us know what he prefers to eat! Want him to have a most enjoyable road trip!!!

Nebraska is called the "Beef state" for a REASON, Mary. Iowa grows corn, and maybe pigs. LOL But I'll admit Ames IA does have one good restaurant. I'm going to have to do some research and figure out the best steakhouse in Nebraska, I'll let you know, after I've gained about 50 pounds HAAHAA.

Mary, I just love all the detail on Puff. You know if he decides to make a road trip he should come on I80 through Nebraska, have a little break here, then go on to Iowa and have a little break there, and after he's rested up he can drop down to I70 and stop in Indiana, before he goes on to New Jersey
