All right, I'm just feeling this out, this blogging thing. I can't wait to see what direction it goes in. I hope someone will find it and ask a sensible question.
I want to get some good discussions going, because there are a ton of highwayman stories out there, God knows, I've heard a thousand of them.

I'm not really sure how to do this yet, get questions etc from you out there, the public, but I think it starts with sending me an email to my regular email address hwymnbnb@aol.com.
At least say something interesting and let's get this thing going.

Amy has posted a link to this site on our main website www.highwaymen-buy-sell-trade.com.

Looking forward to a setting up a double booth at the antique show in St Augustine this coming weekend. Summer's coming and shows will be scarce. I'll post the results of that, good or bad, but I'm not gonna turn into a whiner, I promise you. Sometimes we meet the right people at these shows and sell a few highwaymen paintings. And sometimes we don't.

When we have a poor show, I just always blame the media for relentlessly harping on how bad we have it right now and how expensive it is to leave your front porch.. Hey, it's gotta be someone's fault, right ? Oh, and I blame the oil companies, too. I wish there was a realistic way to screw them back like they're screwing all of us.

Keeping up with the times

I'm trying to keep up with the amazing communication age that we have now become accustomed to. Seems I need a blog.
I'm old school, a child of the fifties and sixties. Yes, we had computers when I was in high school, but they were as big as a tractor trailer then. NASA and the Pentagon had the fast ones.
Now I have a fast one.
We're gonna talk about Florida highwaymen art, the artists, the dealers, the deals, the customers, the scam artists, the stories and whatever you readers write in about.
I don't like the idea of censorship, but I'm gonna be the final arbiter as to what gets posted.
And I'm gonna use gonna instead of going to. Some rules are made to be broken.
This is a start, May 10, 2008, and this is all for now.
Next step is to post a link from my website http://www.highwaymen-buy-sell-trade.com/.
