I’m having an exciting week at home in Mathews, Virginia.
My refrigerator, which has been acting up for years, finally called
it quits for good and I got a new one. I never realized how much
stress that refrigerator put me through until I was so relieved to have
the new one. Also, a film crew from Harrisonburg, Virginia’s,
public television station WVPT is here this week to get footage for
a documentary they are making on my work, the P.
Buckley Moss Museum, the P.
Buckley Moss Society, and the P.
Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education. It’s
been fun having Production Manager Ed Bickel, Graphic Designer Bettina
Remington, and Producer Shari Pennington here and showing them around
the County and talking about my life, my work, and the business.
Ed, Shari, and Bettina came along on my morning walk and filmed
me walking on a local beach in Mathews. Here, you can see Ed holding
the camera and the Chesapeake Bay behind me.
They also filmed me inside my house.
My daughter Mary Donnelly sent me a picture of my grandson
Sean performing in a play as George Mason. He said he really loves
it and may go into acting. We all think that would be a good idea,
especially his mother who said he was a ham. He takes after my
mother Gran Liz, whom we all agree should have been on the stage.
My grandson Sean Donnelly loves acting and is portraying George
Mason in this picture. George Mason, IV, wrote the Virginia
Declaration of Rights, which later became the basis for the Bill
of Rights in the U.S. Constitution.
I have wonderful news; this year’s snow globes
have arrived and are ready to be shipped! Please contact either
your favorite authorized Moss
dealer, or The Moss Portfolio (800) 430-1320 if you don’t
have a dealer in your area, to order your Dancing
Santas snow globe. I’m also ready to show you a
picture of this year’s Christmas print, A Star to Guide Them,
which will be available mid-October.
The 2007 Dancing
Santas Snow Globe will retail for $135, with an edition size
of 1,200. It features the song O Christmas Tree and a star
that lights up!
A Star to Guide Them features the three wise men following the Christmas
star to Bethlehem. It will be printed in an edition size of 3,000
prints and will retail at $95. Any prints remaining after Christmas
will be destroyed.
Friday morning I’ll fly to Pittsburgh, where I’ll
be met by my brother Dan Buckley and his wife Carol. Carol and
Dan are going to drive with me to Columbiana, Ohio, Saturday morning
for my show with Vivian’s Antiques & Collectibles. It’s
been about fifteen years since I last showed with my old and dear friends
Linda Seidner and Sally Case, and I can hardly wait to get there.
Vivian’s Antiques & Collectibles in Columbiana, Ohio,
will feature Al during its show with Pat on September 22. For
more information, contact the gallery at 330-482-3144.
’Til next week…
