Fifteen minutes of fame (Status: George Clooney is famous, not me)

The Picasso find has hit the local news.  I am on the front page of the Columbus Dispatch and I was interviewed by a local Television station, today.  Here is a link to the story from the Dispatch web site.  There is also a video, where I look dorky -what the heck is up with my over animated eyebrows?

  1. I think you look pretty normal and sane for a person who just bought a Picasso for $14.14. I'd still be bouncing off the walls and laughing like a maniac. If the only thing that looks unusually animated are your eyebrows, you're in excellent shape! LOL

    A huge CONGRATULATIONS again!

    1. well Clooney may be famous but it's your story and name that's all over my facebook page. I guess that's what happens when one has lots of thrift friends. Congratulations on your amazing find! Picasso is definitely on my bucket thrift list.
