Blank Check for Good Looks

Some months ago I was fortunately enough to be assisting Paul Anka in my Beverly Hills store.  When the time came to pay, Anka hands me a blank check–no “Dan Deutsch,” no “Optical Outlook,” no dollar amount…nothing but an autograph.   “Paul,” I say. “Can I take this and go buy a boat?” He just turns around and smiles.

All I can say is, I’m really enjoying my new boat. Thank you so much, Paul Anka!
