One of my favorite sitcoms growing up was Home Improvement.
The show followed the life of a Tim Taylor who was a home improvement TV host of Tool Time, well if you call what he did improving things. He had a wife and three mischievous kids, a neighbor who would never reveal the bottom of his face as they hid it every time in hilarious ways and a co-host on his TV show in Al Borland who he picked on constantly about his attire and his mother.
As most readers know, I have spent the last couple of years chasing down autographs whether from a card company or TTM of actors or actresses I grew up watching and have done pretty well. Except you Drew Carey. Curse you!
I have sent TTM requests to Tim Taylor who was played by the great Tim Allen and have received some back before. I have been told though that many are suspicious that his secretary signs them. Makes me want to chase down an authentic signature of him somewhere so I at least have a guarantee. I see many of his 8x10's on eBay are only like $50.
Getting back on topic, one signature I wanted to pair with my TTM Tim Taylor was his co-host of Tool Time, Al Borland who was played by Richard Karn.
So I used my usual sources for autographs TTM and found one of Karn and sent it out. Within a coupe of weeks, this came to me.
One of Al's favorite lines when Tim messed something up was, "I don't think so Tim" which is a line I use a lot today with family and friends when they do something bumbling. I mean, it's really catchy.
A thanks goes out to Richard for sending me back my request and will be added to my 90's PC. I hope to see you back on TV someday, somewhere. Bringing back Home Improvement would be amazing but not expected. At least I get to watch you and others on the show every night of the week on the Laff network at 9pm. The show never gets old.
