Star billing in Arkansas

For 2 years I worked 24/7 doing classes in Chattanooga ,Millington, Jackson and Memphis, Tennessee and Jonesboro and West Memphis, Arkansas (still trying to figure out how WM got in Arkansas!) some weeks doing 10 classes a week--I did newspaper, radio and TV interviews--met myself coming and going--then by 1971 we had a full staff and things eased off a bit--it was tiring, it was fun, it was exhausting and I wanted to do more--then everything changed in 1972! I now owned three different tuxes!

What a star my friend. I think I read something you write about this some time ago. Maybe on another site. But it is way interesting to read your stories.

10 classes a week is a lot, I can quite see that it was exhausting.
