Upcoming Events for 2001
It doesn't seem possible that this year is almost three-fourths over. Time really seems to go by faster the older you get.
January was spent
resting up from our trip to Greece, Egypt and Turkey. The end of January we went to Phoenix to photograph Patsey Moyer for the cover of her new Antiques Detectives book, How to Be a Doll Detective
Then on to Tucson for the February, "Gem and Jewelry Show."
In March I was invited to New York City to tape two segments for the National CBS, "Saturday Morning Show."
One segment aired March 17th, and the other was shown April 14th. I love every opportunity to be on National TV and of course any reason to be in New York. I spent an extra week enjoying one of my favorite cities.
The first week in April was spent in Philadelphia. On the 18th of April, Michael and I flew to Los Angles for three weeks in California, where we did appraisals, seminars, speeches, and book signings.
The 12th of May, I did jewelry appraisals at a local Antiques show. On Saturday the 19th, I found myself getting up with the birds to be on a local CBS morning appraisal show.
In June I spent time in
Birmingham, AL, and Nashville and Knoxville, TN, talking with producers about having my own TV show. Who knows … Maybe it will happen! I also taped a session for "Treasures in Your Attic," a PBS antiques
show. It will be shown next season.
July found us in New Orleans at the annual meeting of the National Watch and Clock Collectors Association. A lot of time was spent doing research and photographing for my
up-coming book, The Collectors Encyclopedia of Pocket and Pendant Watches. Look for it late next spring.
Parts of July, August and September were filled with a leasehold improvement project. A.
D. Publishing had outgrown our dining room and needed its own space. It is still a work in progress!
September 13 through 17 Lisa B. Underwood of Birmingham is flying in to work on a new book, How to be a Silver Detective
I had planned on spending October through December working on books, getting my affairs in order, and catching up on appraisals. But when Peter Cook called and ask if I would go to Dallas and represent
the Antiques Roadshow at the October 12 and 13 National AARP Convention, I accepted. I will make presentations as well as doing appraisals. It sounds like fun!
Stay in touch!
Since my husband, Michael Marshall, has retired from the U.S.EPA, its "no telling" where we might go or what we may do before the end of the 2001.
