Don't Blink or You'll Miss My Roadshow Appearance

Way back in August I went to Antiques Roadshow here in Vegas. I brought my friend Mel and several nice antiques from my parents. If you really want to read about the whole experience, click here.


Anyhow, it finally aired last night! Now, I am putting myself out there, for all of you to see in my "I'm Such A Dork" glory. Enjoy!

I WATCHED that episode! I wish I had known it was you - I would have bragged.
You sure are a cutie. I don't think you seem dorky at ALL.

We DVR'd it the other night but ended up watching it live anyway. It was nice to be able to see you head on instead of picking you out of the background like on the other episodes. Way to go!

Girl - I'd asked him if he wanted to buy it for the top dollar amount!! hehe

I saw your drinking horn on the roadshow, and it was a very interesting piece. I am an avid
18th century history buff, and I have never seen a drinking horn before.

It appears that the horn has "Fecit 1766 Tho Doty" inscribed on it. This means..."Made in 1766 by Thomas Doty". I have a feeling that this horn was owned by Col. Thomas Doty in Massachussetts. He also owned the "Doty Tavern" that was the meeting place of patriots at the eve of the American Revolution. If you can attribute the horn to this Thomas Doty, I would venture to say your horn is even more valuable than its original appraisal. Thanks for showing us your wonderful drinking horn. It's already gaining some talk amongst the 18th century reenactment community. Take care.
