And Make Believe It Came From You

Did Frank Sinatra entice you to join the Capital Record Club when you were 12 claiming you were 18? It happened to me. After I received my first delivery box for 97 cents, four Beatle albums ~ delighted, I forgot about the membership. 4 weeks later, Capital sent me Buck Owens' "Roll Out The Carpet," Lp and a bill for $3.42. Unacceptable. I began my short career as a forger. This story includes Huskie dungarees, Cool Whip, (not in that order), a Mickey Mantle forger, The Boy Scout Manual's section on "Stalking," and The Thurman Munson/Pepsi Cola Fan Club.
