Hi All, I just got home from Branson last night, and am GLAD Keith has helped us find Ed!! Had a WONDERFUL TRIP(with 40 "SENIORS-my age!). I even found "goodies" in the Branson Shops(the bus wouldn't stop at all the Antique Malls along the way!)Only one salt, but it was nicely sun-purpled, as the one I already had wasn't. May "chat later, but sorry to have missed your Birthday Sue, Hope it was a GOOD ONE! Don

Keith, thank you for asking about Ed. We all need to keep track of our valued collectors. Ed contributed so much to our knowledge of salt collecting. When we get older and no longer are able to attend meetings and collect, we shouldn’t be forgotten. Ed is a wonderful man and I’m so happy we are in touch with him again. I have many salt friends I’ve never met face to face, but by communicating and adding knowledge to discussions, we still have much to offer.

To all who reads this message: Ed Bowman’s message to all of you: I Am Alive And Well and Kicking. I wish all of you could have listened to the one hour conversation Norma & I just had with Ed. He sounds great, and really likes his “ new home”. He has adjusted very well, & is contented where he is.......sounded just like the same old Ed. Uses a walker......but has been very smart about the decisions he has made in regards to his long term health care. Still has medical issues, but they are being addressed quite well where he is. He would love to hear from all of you. WHAT GREAT NEWS !! Thanks again to all of you who have been concerned. What a Relief to hear Ed so “chipper”. Keith

Deane Rabourn here. Don and I have been searching for Ed since the first of the year. I sent Adult Protective Services accompanied by the police out to his last known address and was told he had gone to live with relatives. I have tried the cell number several times and get a message that it has been disconnected. Will try again. I guess if you want to know something - ask the salt people. Thanks to all for helping locate him.

I did an internet search for Ed, and came up with an obituary for his grand son in 2002. Kieth, or Lynda message me I can send you the obit, maybe we can come up with a phone number for his kids. I'll try their names on ancestry. Ive also sent some messages to people who seem to be his family on facebook. cross your fingers that someone responds

Keith: The last time I was in touch with Ed he was moving to a smaller place - an apartment I think - in Hartford City. He could not keep up the grounds around his large property any more. It was about the time he had all his salts up for auction. Now if he moved again into assisted living, I don't know. Nancy D is right about his name. It's Harry Bowman. If he had to move to assisted living and Hartford City did not have a facility like that, he might be in Marion, Indiana. That's about the largest city near there.

Jane: Exactly why I don't want to switch to another company. None have good reviews and rates keep going up. Why go through all the hassle with the same results? I just got off Larry's cell phone from talking with WOW because our telephone has been out since the last time I talked to someone on Saturday. If we get kicked offline one more time and I have to call back, they will send someone out to look at all the outside lines.

Our internet has been for most of the last few days. I'm getting them out here one last time, then switching to something else if they can't solve the problem. TV going out all the time, but that at least seems to be OK now. But we keep getting booted of the internet and when the internet is out the phone is out so I can't call when we are actually offline. What a freaking' nightmare! I'm so tired of this.

My aide was able to find the salt so I could take another photo. It is a milky green. I was sure it was a pure dark green. Maybe there is another I have in one of the cabinets, but don’t want my aides to go rummaging through them. I do think I had a different photo that is probably in the cloud now.

Since day 1 I have kept my records of what salt I have in the H & J. I draw pictures, write stuff and stick in papers. Lololololol, pretty much works for me.

Thanks Susie - Last night they said it was in Vegas and this morning they said it was still in So Cal - I think I was more afraid of more to come - Mackie was on my desk and we rode it through together - His eyes got so big - Now I cannot believe I calmly rode the "ride" and told him we were okay because it was a roller not a jerker -

Gonna have to get coffee and catch up on the board and personal emails - Been gone too long - Prepare yourselves as this time I am really back to stay - Acceptance and a change of mental and wishful attitude seems to be working -

Susie: My thinking is this was silver plated. Brass would have been too weak for such a large piece. The part right on top of the glass looks like solid metal. This would look absolutely gorgeous if it was the type of metal that accepted the silver restorer, but if it isn't nickel, it wouldn't take. Any type of cleaner would probably work, just be careful around the enamel.

I was curious about the base so I brightened the picture. Maybe a bit overboard but the base was really dark. Can't tell if it is brass or maybe metal that lost its silver plating. What do you think? Can't imagine something so elaborate would not have any marks. Maybe they are hidden where it's put together.

Very nice Susie. The salt could be original because those with the hole made to have holders were generally German, some French. (Check out the catalogs.) It will be interesting to see if the holder has any marks. I assume you have to do some cleaning. Picture is rather dark but it looks like the base is enameled too?

We got the formal confirmation that we got the apartment - for June 21! I called her, and she corrected that and emailed a new one. Now she made an arithmetic error which I'll have to call her to correct.

We're selling our washer and dryer, some kitchen appliances, and a lot of books. I don't think we could get them to you!

    Jane, I can't believe you're moving. I don't have it in me to do again. Please let me know what you're selling and your prices.
    I can't believe Nancy fell again. She might need a walker or a cane. At 88 the bones donlt like crashes.

We will be moving to a new apartment sometime in August. I can't believe all the salts we have to pack, not to mention everything else. We are getting rid of a lot! Anyway, I don't know how much I will be on here. I'll try to put up some pictures of intaglios in holder in my "spare time". On another note, I was just on FaceBook. Nancy Dietel fell again in her bathroom I think she said Sunday. She said she's not really hurt, but they had to get the police to pick her up.

Lynda, forgot to thank you for your comment on the "duckie" and milifiori. I thought the duck was a pelican, maybe? It fits in with some of my other fun animal dishes. And the mili has a backstory, but it's too long to go into here.

Thanks Don. We had such a bad winter for collecting, between bad weather, and shows that didn't have anything good, that I might have went a little overboard. But,I don't regret any of them. I was amazed at how many nice ones I had to pick from, that doesn't happen often.

Linda H., That's quite a "HAUL" for a weekend!! With all the salts I have, I would have bought most of them myself! I found 7 that I didn't have, at a Flea Market last Wednesday( which still AMAZES me after 40-some years of collecting open salts!)

I purchased a salt just like your round enameled one in India several years ago. You are right - they are beautiful!

Ok, last one for today. this is a hinged box on 3 feet on little red balls, All over enameling, and a spoon that matches. I thought maybe it was a snuff box, but it's gorgeous, the picture doesn't do it justice

I'd had my eye on this one for a while, I finally caved in and bought it. The bowl is made of stone, maybe Jadite? its marked sterling and something else that's too small to make out.

Another that I was kind of looking for, but not quite on the bucket list----Venetian type with two tiny dolphins for handles. I don't think I'd use them for handles though

Jane, thank you, that's the mark, it's to one side instead of the middle. This baby only cost me $3, it was laying in what I can only call a pile of junk!

Linda - is the mark on your double? It is Teplitz-type - c. 1920 - rare.

Here's a quick look at my loot from the antique / flea market Friday and Saturday.
Mary, I'm so glad you went to your antique show, bet you had a great time. Jane, the last 5 or 6 shows we've been at were duds, not to mention iffy weather. This time we had sprinkles and some wind, but was fun.

Sorry I missed your Birthday, Mary! Glad it went well. I haven't had the computer on for 3 days, been BUSY! Friday and Saturday was the local Fire Department's annual Fish Fry, and our church volunteers to handle all the drinks(my hands have hardly "thawed out" from getting cans out of ICE WATER!) We enjoy doing it for them! Took a "bunch" of Intaglios in holders photos,earlier this week, but haven't found time to do anything with them(don't even have them all back on the shelves!)

Some of you may remember that many moons ago I used to do an antique and collectibles show the second Wednesday of the month - I have not been able to do the show for almost 2 years - They changed it to Saturday and I went today - The promoter gave me my old table back and so I was in the line of the top sellers - I have never been one - but they like me - lol lol - I sold one salt and bought a gadzillion pieces of jewelry and misc. other items - One salt is the one above - I cleaned it and it is even more stunning - Pairpoint - I gotta tell you - I am in pain up to my elbows and then even a little past that - But emotionally and mentally I am a happy camper - Already paid for my table next month and will take a variety of things - Today was solely salts and only silvers - My table was beautiful anyway - Okay - I go see if I can shovel another handful of pills down me and if not - then my last chocolate covered strawberry - Yea - It was soooo worth it!!!!
