Favorite Thing Day 19

Favorite Thing Day 19

What does your 78 year old neighbor and I have in common? We both find ourselves sitting captivated every Monday at 8pm, watching Antiques Road Show.

I love old things, which probably explains my obsession with Antiques Road Show. It’s exciting to see how much someone’s old plant holder, that just so happens to be from the early CROMWELLIAN period and is extremely rare, is worth. But it’s more than that for me. I love the history and stories behind these objects. It’s not just Antiques Road Show’s priceless treasures that I love but old movies, old music(it drives poor Preston crazy), old books, old people, and old cheese. (I threw those last two in to make sure you were reading!)

The difference between me and your 78 year old neighbor is that he actually probably owns some of these old things of which I have been speaking…I just dream of them!

So…for those of you looking for some good entertainment next Monday night tune into Antiques Road Show…it changes lives!
