I was asked to decorate a empty billboard along Dekalb Ave. at Arizona near Candler Park and Kirkwood. I had met with the guy that is leasing the land to farm from the LandTrust. We spoke about the billboard and what he wanted to do with it. We went over details and he gave me the go ahead.
Last Saturday I went over by myself because he was feeling under the weather. It was a heavy sign and the hill was quite steep so it took my a bit to get it installed. I don’t even like ladders all that much! I put up a double-sided large bear head and a little blue cross I had with me. The bear really looked great. That was last Saturday. It was hot.
I had several folks comment on how they liked it. How it made them smile on the way to work. Then I got word that it was gone. Gone?!
Now, I do not know where it went or where it is now. I have no clue. I guess it doesn’t matter anymore. It lasted all of 4 days. I was just bothered that it was requested and that it was on private property. It was also a *&^#@& to hang up.
I just wanted to get that off my chest. It was a lot to “bear“.
