I don't think I've ever posted twice in one day on this blog but I just had to this time. I can't contain myself. I found out today that I won tickets to The Antiques Roadshow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Technically, Allen won tickets, but I am going or he will suffer the consequences for the rest of his life!! There are a few tickets available that you can buy, but they are horribly expensive. Or, you can put your name in the drawing and if you win you get 2 tickets for free. I registered myself of course, and then also Allen, for better odds. They do not notify you if you win but you can go to the Antiques Roadshow website after a certain date and check to see if you won. I checked for myself first and was crushed that I had not been picked. I've tried for years to go to this thing. So, I checked for Allen and sure enough, he won.
I've already picked out what we'll be taking. A couple of the pieces are ceramics, as you might expect. Each ticket holder gets to bring 2 items and no more. The show I applied for is in Birmingham thankfully, so it won't be too far. In the past I've applied as far away as Washington DC, so it was really cool to get picked for the show here. Yaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!! I'm SO excited!!!!! Can you tell?????
I'm sure some of you are wondering, is Jack not going with me? No, Jack said he really didn't want to go to begin with so he is fine with Allen going with me, or me going with Allen, however you want to look at it. Jack spent 30 or 40 years working in television and he really doesn't have any desire to be around that stuff anymore. But I am SO excited!!!!!!! And I've got to meet that Yankee jeweler guy. You know, the one with the dark hair and that great New York accent. Be neat to meet the Keno brothers too. I am SO excited!!!!!! I may not sleep much tonight!!!! Eeeeekkkk!!!!!
