Walrath Art Pottery and the Pottery Market
This past weekend, I saw Rosville and Weller pottery well overpriced at an estate sale and wondered how anyone could turn a profit if they purchased these pieces at those prices. This is not the first sale I’ve seen this. In fact, this seems to be the norm today, and the reason why so many dealers are having a hard time selling their inventory.
The Comic Speculator: Doom vs Iron Man
With the Iron Man movie premiering this week, I have goose bumps just thinking about it, I thought it would be a good time to highlight one of my favorite runs of ol’ shell-head’s comic. In the 80’s David Micheline and Bob Layton redefined Tony Stark’s character making him the Iron Man we know today.
Every Mother Has One
Nearly every mother has one – the box filled with grade-school artwork, Boy Scout merit badges and years of Mother’ s Day cards. Whether homemade creations with crayon and construction paper or store-bought sentiments, Mother’s Day cards are simply too tough for most moms to toss, and many mothers hold on to cards for decades.
Mother’s Day Tribute: A Mother Knows Her Children
A mother knows her children. That’s what I learned from my own mother in a most unusual way.
My mother had five boys with age differences between each of about 18 months to 2 years, so she was constantly going through the separate stages of growing up for entirely too many years. All of us were different. I was the shy, bookish one, but still able to hold my own in any rumble.

Lyrics by Rida Johnson Young
There’s a spot in me heart which no colleen may own.
There’s a depth in me soul never sounded or known.
There’s a place in me memory, my life, that you fill.
No other can take it, no one ever will.
