I'm doing okay. Apparently Phil is doing really good. They wanted to send him home on Friday, but he talked them into another week. I really want to make sure he is ready. I couldn't go through anything like the last time again!

   Nancy D the cat picture and discussion made me laugh out loud. So funny. Good afternoon to you. Hope you are well and staying safe.
   Jan, love you
   Jane, how are you? Any news on how Phil is doing. Still thinking of you 2.
    I notice Don isn't asking for my address to send those pesky space taking master salts to me. Wonder why? Lololololol

I love that picture, Jan! It reminds me so much of my Angel Wendy! She'd jump to the countertop - jump to the refrigerator - and jump to the top of the cupboards.

Lol that’s a good one Nancy!! That cat standing like that!!!

Debi, I would like to contribute if and when you want to do more of the H&J project. I use it constantly as I’m sure others do!! It is the most helpful salt project that I know of!

Hope everyone had a good and SAFE Holiday yesterday. I spent a part of the day, going through MORE boxes from storage(from the early 90's). I keep "finding" things that I'd forgotten that I had! Yesterday it was several Table Salts(that just take up too much space, to display!) One, that I decided was TOO NICE to put back in a box, is the SNAIL Table(Master) Salt. It's not pictured in the H.J. book or the Compendium. My pattern glass book doesn't mention Snail being made in this size. Is it SPECIAL or not? If it needs to be seen, I'll get a photo taken(when I "get around" to photographing some of my "finds!) I've "found" several things that I wonder WHY I Packed Away 27 years ago( I KNOW WHY, I didn't have space to display them!! I've also found things that are going to the Goodwill, that I WONDER WHY I SAVED THEM! Such is LIFE!

   Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Happy Memorial Day to you all. I miss the parades but still feel very thankful. I think just about every family has had someone in the service. My Dad was in the Army during WW2, my husband in Vietnahm. I was in the Army reserves during Desert Storm, my son was in the Marines.. I think the military touches us all.

Lynda, in that group of unpacked salts, I see the only match I've ever seen of my apricot colored salt, ruffle and needing a stand. I posted mine recently in opalescent, etc. I suppose you might call it rust colored though it's too rich a color to call just rust.

Debi, Family search is totally free. It's the LDS site, and has a lot of digitized records from the Library in Salt Lake. Some records have a key above the camera icon, which means it has to be viewed at a library associated with the SLC library. Check your local library to see if they are one of those. It's a great resource.

Good morning to everyone. Thought I would share a doggie photo for a change. My town has always had a Memorial Day parade. Of course, canceled this year. But, our Volunteer Firemen and our Police are going to parade tomorrow through all the streets. We are asked to watch from our homes. They also held a competition for best decorated bikes and houses. So uplifting in this wonderful town that I have lived in for 62 years.
Hope you all are doing well.

Linda: I am only signed up on Ancestry. Other sites offer "free" accounts but after a point you have to pay. I'm not paying for more than one Genealogy account. Too many fees for everything! I have found a couple people I keep in contact with. We have distant family in common and have access to each other's trees. Just made another surname connection this week. It's interesting.

   Good afternoon all you salters. Debi, so glad you stay busy. I do remember your Jensens. They do comand some peasos. I think Jan hit it on the head, when you have so many it is hard to find what you don't have. How Susie P comes up with her finds is a mystery to me but God bless her. I keep haunting her to sell to me but no luck there. Sometimes I just don't give a fig about buying. I have to get back into the project here. I've had these little pedestal out for months for page 150, H/J. At least that gives me pleasure. Mary has a few for me so I guess I'll pay her and get them here.
  I'm going to my daughters for dinner. They were here yeaserday. Those 2 girls can talk your ears off. I just love it.
   Linda, good to hear from you.

I imagine we all go through salt slumps and for different reasons. I get my dander up about shipping fees, or I just plain can’t find anything so I quit looking, or good old depression sets in and I have no focus for anything. I suppose it’s more common in long-time collectors?? Well, that’s my two cents!!

Lynda: Just not interested in buying a common glass just because I don't have it for $5-10 plus postage when all I can see happening to them is they are put in a box lot of 50 salts and sell for $20. I do watch for a few Fostoria and from other companies I don't have but have not seen them. The salts I bought last year mostly had pretty hefty price tags. Four were George Jensen sterling with cobalt enamel, one blue and white spongeware, one old blue and white Delft trencher style and then a $20 blue and white double. Total for those 7 salts was about $1350 and I got back about $425 for the 2 duplicates so I'm still doing my part in buying, just not in great quantity. LOL I've been back into Ancestry for a couple years now so between that and playing some computer games I keep busy.

Wish I had some new beauties to share but have not bought any new salts. Had to look at my eBay purchase history to see how long it's been. December 2019 was the last time I bought a new salt. Looked through the entire year and I only bought 7 all year and two were pairs where I sold one, so 5 new salts since January 2019.

   Jan, I've see another glass lable Mirror. It had large ovals between columns if my memory serves me right. I only remember it because it looked like mirrors you'll have on the wall. YouDon and Debi are really quite amazing with your knowledge. I just learned what "pattern pieces" means. I always thought it was a piece with a pattern on it. Duhhh, You all are Impressive. I am so glad I know you guys.

Of course, there aren't many very attractive salts on the general open market now. First they disappeared from flea market shelves because sellers discovered eBay. I'm not sure what caused the bottom to drop out of prices there in the first decade of the 21st century, maybe a combination of the economy and an aging base of salt collectors. The collections at Evans are heavy with attractive makers and types, lots of lacies sometimes. I think what market is left is heavily in the NW. But what do I know?

I have three Daum Nancy salts that probably qualify as rare. Bought my first one, which I never thought I'd have, at a national convention. I sold a number of salts at the Buy & Sell event and took all my earnings to Wilf Cohen's Daum Nancy table and spent it all on one salt, the Summer.

James weighed all of 6#, definitely couldn’t get food for himself. He is 13# now and the vet is happy with him. Libbie is not a rescue, although I did try to find a rescue Asian type cat. No, she is a retired mama from an Oriental shorthair breeder in California. Pretty sad when your cat travels farther than you do!!

So sweet, Jan. You saved James life if he was declawed, he wouldn’t have survived. And to adopt a rescue, wonderful. So nice they love each other. I had one cat named Mittens when I was a teenager. Unfortunately, she was hit by a car. My mom had a cat for years and I often took care of her. One of my boys was very allergic to animals and we had to give up our dog, Prince, to a friend. But I love all animals.

Nancy, James was a stray, if you can believe it. I tried everything I could think of to find his owners. He is neutered and all 4 feet are declawed... I wanted a pal for him for when I am away, and found Libbie on the internet. I had to interview To get her, including a thorough description of James and his personality. Her breeder thought they were a good match. Looks like she was right!!

Someone call his from the hospital and told him he would be there for a while. Then they will try to get him back into Encompass or Wellspan, but it may not be possible to get in where he wants. They will, though, get him into a good place.

   Jane, My heart goes out to you both. I know as I get older I don't tolerate events like this. Too much to deal with at our age. I also do not like to be away from the comforts and security of my home. So I would imagine that is dificult for Phil. Still, I don't understand them sending him home as he obviously wasn't ready. Covid is no excuse. But they recognize it now and hopefully he'll get the help he needs. You have a lot of friends pulling for you. Bless you and Phil. Take good care of yourself.

He wasn't doing that Lynda. He was here alone waiting for the paramedics to come and he was scared because we didn't know what was happening. When he fell he could have broken his neck again. The balloon in the catheter deflated for some reason, and it fell out. They said that happens from time to time. He's in a room at the hospital now. Their PT is working with him and said he needs a lot more intensive therapy. They are trying to get him back to Encompass. Failing that they will get him into the Wellspan system. So - that's where things stand now.

Lynda, Lovely salt - I like the old molded ones that someone took the time to embellish with some cutting. Sometimes you can see the cutting going up and down as though this was given to the apprentice. I think it adds to the charm.

Jane, My best to you and Phil as you transition to having him at home and in a wheelchair. Hugs to you.

PS - When I first signed up on this site I lived in GA. I live in PA now so just consider the GA a flash from the past or a typo. HA, HA. I am so glad that the sign in is keeping the riffraff away. Good idea. Thanks!

Night before last we were two degrees above the record low for that date (25, record is 23), I missed the weather at noon so I don't know about this morning. I haven't been brave enough to do any garden shopping, maybe in a week or so, and I'm not buying very much. Here it's wise not to put anything out until the 20th or later.
Since I was such a klutz the other day I haven't played with my salts, other than finding spots for the new ones from Nina. I have a lot of duplicates I'd like to pass on to someone else, but I'm not sure I'm willing to do the FB buy & sell route.
Thanks for the nice comment Don.

The night before I went out and dug back up all the annuals; they are currently still in the garage, and used every old sheet and table cloth, plus my big empty pots, to cover as many blooming perennials as I could, only lost a couple; tonight is supposed to be the last night in the

Phil had his home evaluation this morning. I had to do all the things they showed me Tuesday afternoon when I went to the rehab hospital. They measured and tried to find better ways to do things, but everything went pretty well. In fact before they left they said we did very well. Our communication was really good. So - he will come next week when the wheelchair is delivered to the hospital.

Lynda: That type of salt is also shown in H&J. H&J 872, 877 and 906. I never saw a cobalt one. If it's pictured in OSC I guess I should look that book over again. Don't remember it. I had an amethyst one with painted flowers a long time ago.

Linda: How awful - losing two art glass salts. Heartbreaking to say the least.

Nancy D: Love the cats!

Susie: Beautiful Daum! Maybe someday I'll find that one I love so much again, but I doubt I'll ever see it for sale again.

I am just heartsick. Two of my English salts in holders fell today. It doesn't look like i can even glue all the pieces back together so they can at least be displayed. I doubt I can find replacements either.

Hi ALL, I'm enjoying all the GREAT Cat Photos, AND the GREAT Salts! Just a comment about wearing the masks, if you wear a Hearing Aid, BE CAREFUL!! I LOST my right one, last week! Never did find it, but the Insurance will replace it for $200.00, and with ALL the MONEY folks(out of work) are loosing, it's a SMALL thing! So Be Careful and Be Safe! Don

   Lololol, my brain is or must be fried. I asked my daughter if I wore a mask in Rural King (not General) cause I could'nt remember and it must have been pretty comfortable cause she said I had worn my mask the whole time. We just got the order for my county. Everything is opening up but everyone HAS to wear a mask and only so many people in a building per so many feet. To me that's fine except the masks are manditory for everyone 3 years and older. Now how do u get a baby to wear a mask? I guess they get to stay home.

   Good morning.... afternoon to u all. Nancy D great picture of the cat. Jan, ur weather sounds like Fl. We go from winter right into summer. No in between. Kids got me out and about all weekend. It was nice but weird. We tried to hit a few grochery stores but the lines were very long. I wore my mask in most places but I think I forgot to wear it in this huge store called Rural General. Wearing a mask isn't 2ND nature to me but am a bit frustrated with myself. Kids needed dog food. As I remember though, I stayed far away from people. All and all it was nice to get out.

   Good afternoon everyone. Nancy V, I think ur being smart. Outdoor activity is good for everyone but they have to use common sense. Which many people lack.
   Stay well and safe y'all. Hugs to everyone.

Yeah, Dallas opened up after the worst day yet for new infections and deaths. I'm staying in.
Parks are good as long as people use social distancing. Too many may not. I'm very cautions about restaurants, malls, and even churches unless you are in an area with very few known cases of virus. And known isn't very dependable. Maybe I've been reading and listening to news too much. Makes one paranoid.
