Now,That's My Kind of Comforter!

I found this video via Kim Komando's Facebook share. (That woman is a goldmine of information.) Anyway, the story is inspiring and heartwarming (I cried a little.). It's a rags-to-riches story about a regular Joe who had fallen on hard times and watched an Antiques Road Show episode that changed his life dramatically.  L.T. seems like a great guy, and I am very happy for him.

Not to be a wet-blanket (sorry), and no offense intended, but I can't help but wonder how his family came in possession of an Indian chief's blanket in the first place. Knowing its extreme value even back then, it's only natural to be curious. I wonder if L.T. knows.  Regardless, it's a cool story.


  1. Beautiful story! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wow, that's an amazing story. LT looks like a pretty cool guy.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  3. I saw that video a few weeks ago too. Makes you wonder if you should check your attic or basement (cellar) for more treasures. Happy Thanksgiving! I hope your exchange student has a wonderful American holiday experience via your family.

    1. Thanks, Dave. You, too! Maren enjoyed the meal very much. I found it interesting that while she didn't appreciate the pumpkin pie, she loved the rutabagas, of which my MIL makes only a small bowl because only she and I like them. Maren said that her family has rutabagas at their Christmas dinners, so it was a nice treat for her.

  4. Wow that is pretty cool, I wish the man well and I hope that he does well with his new found freedom. Thanks for the neat story.

  5. Kinda makes you ant to gut the attic, hey?!
