I’m not exactly a hoarder, but some of this crap make me think I might be a candidate. Although most is in the trash now, including these remnants of my early-adulthood fondness for stealing blank letterhead. (I was a big sender of prank mail, back in the day.) Including:
This is the station that became WTBS. TCG stood for Turner Communications Group, if I recall correctly. (Ted was into billboards as well as UHF TV stations.) J.C. worked here in the early ’80s, and I used to fly down for weekend visits; Delta had a cheap flight out of Columbus. We’d always go to the station for at least a little while, because J.C. was always working, and I’d play in the wrestling ring while he finished up. Georgia Championship Wrestling was taped Saturday mornings. Good times.
Other of my friends tended to work for print outlets:
This is my Uncle Arthur’s casket flag. It’s a nice cotton one, and I need to get it out and fly it. Casket flags are slightly disproportionate, a flag maker told me once, and we don’t have a pole, but in Columbus we displayed this on July 4 by hanging it from nails driven into the mortar of our brick house. Think I’ll do that here.
I kept this because it’s a movie waiting to be written. A madcap comedy.
And while I loved my time in Ann Arbor, both of these went into the trash. Just not a hat girl.
Off to closet no. 2 now. MORE COFFEE.
