It seems as though the economy has taken a bite out of just about everyone these days. I am finding it most difficult to land an Exhibit anywhere. I have struck out at places like the Smithsonia Institute, Navy Museums, and others. No one has any money to support an outside venue. Many will do the Exhibit for free, but as much as I want to put these wonderful artifacts on display, I can't afford to. I sure hope things change, as I have continued to add to the Exhibit, but no place to show them. I have thought about donating the Exhibit on a long term loan, but no one can promise the items will be on display.

I can't see making any donations and not having the items on display. I guess I am venting here as it is getting a bit fustrating for me. I want these items on display to help Educate the public, but can't find anyone willing to do an Exhibit. I will be doing a few small Exhibits for the Library and Veterans in June and August, but that's about it. I seem to have run out of options. Oh well, things will get beter one day I hope. Thanks for listening............
