What I really wanted to collect was Picasso painting, but I found out I couldn’t afford them. So, I decided to collect cheeseburgers, extra pickles, NO onions! My humble collection began with a lapel pin, a pair of earrings and a belt buckle. It has grown to include everything from a Harlequin novel “My Darling My Hamburger,” to a telephone, Christmas ornaments, a purse–even the very cheeseburger that sat on Jimmy Buffett’s desk (see large double-decker burger in center photo.)
My collection has been featured in Taste of Home Magazine, the Food Network, Tennessee Crossroads (see video here) and FOX network. When my birthday rolls around many of my students find it a personal challenge to find a cheeseburger I don’t already have. Good Luck.
