Affirmed.
(Court opinion corrected 11/21/12.) Plaintiff, an attorney, continued to sign advertising contracts with Yellow Book, even after he was placed on notice of personal collections suit against him (after his company went out of business and ceased paying its bills), and in so doing he did not attempt to cross out contract language as to personal guarantee or add language limiting his guarantee to his corporate role. Court properly found that Plaintiff intended to be bound personally under contract guarantee. (LAVIN and PUCINSKI, concurring.)
