Sudden death overtime minute of fame (Status: lookie, I'm on the T and V)

Here is a link to a report on my thrift store Picasso that ran on the local NBC affiliate.  Must be a slow news day here in Columbus.  The reporter keeps mispronouncing my last name (it's pronounced beau-dish not Baa-dish).  Yes, they had me reenact discovering the print.

  2. Cool! First a print star and now a TV star. We may have to buy you a pair of Foster Grants and a big floppy hat so you can go around incognito.

    Seriously, I'm so excited for you. I was telling my SIL all about your find today.

    1. How many times have you heard similar stories and thought "Man, I wish it was me"; it's kinda nut when it actually happens.

    1. Fame is fleeting, true friendship lasts forever. I've been lucky this time but soon someone else will hit the jackpot and I will be a foot note to their story (like the person who found the original copy of the Declaration of Independance in a Nashville thrift store for $2,50 a few years back).
      I swear I look much more dashing in person or on your arm at the Thrifters Ball. Hey,the Thrifters Ball should be a "thing"!
