  • Goldie Hawn - In 1986 my hubby and I were in Hawaii on the island of Maui. We were playing "tourist" in the little fishing village of La Haina, noted for its arts and crafts. The narrow street was crowded and we saw an attractive couple pushing a stroller move on by. She wore a white muslin dress and he ws in jeans. They proceeded down the street and soon someone shouted that Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell were in the crowd. Soon they drew a crowd, especially when they entered an art gallery. She graciously signed some autographs, and they left the shop. Besides her tremendous beauty, I was struck by the fact that so famous a couple could have been on a crowded little street for so long without someone noticing sooner. They wore no sunglasses. I guess that is how stars blend in with crowds every day. We just don't notice them. DKH

  • Tex Ritter - When I was 13 years old I went to a Tex Ritter concert at a local junior high school auditorium in Hamilton, Ohio. I was always a huge fan of Tex when I was small. I sat in awe of the great man during the first half of the performance. He was accompanied on stage by his long time cowboy sidekick Smiley Burnette. During the intermission I was honored to walk up to the stage and request his current hit at the time "Hill Billy Heaven" which he sang right after the show resumed. He made a young person pretty happy.

  • Jay North - I met Jay North when he appeared at our local movie theatre in High Point, NC. I remember being very excited to see him. After he left the stage I went upstairs to the restroom and I heard voices down the hall. I walked around the corner and there was Jay and company in the theatre manager's office. I said hello and he was very cordial and even posed for a picture with me. He didn't seem much like the boys I knew. He was very professional and it made me feel a little sad for some reason. I felt sorry for him and wished he could come home with me and play with me and my friends. I think he would have liked that too. I think he had to grow up too fast and would have loved a chance to play and just be one of the guys for a day. It still makes me smile to think of him and that day.

  • Mr. T - In 1996, my family took a vacation to San Antonio, TX. We had been out and about, and when we returned to our hotel, one of the hotel employees was gushing all over about Mr. T staying at their hotel. He even told us that Mr. T was out at the pool, and encouraged us to check it out. Not wanting to be too intrusive, we did go poolside but did not approach him, and we saw him with his entourage. Meanwhile, a little boy and his dad went up and asked Mr. T for his autograph, and Mr. T refused!!! The little boy left obviously upset. I left disappointed for the little boy, and in Mr. T for being less than gracious. His glory days were long over when this happened. I was just curious if he realized it!

  • Angie Dickinson - I was in the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas in 1994 when I saw her looking at the slot machines while holding a cup of quarters. I approached her and asked for an autograph. She was so nice and friendly. As she signed her name, she had a big smile on her face. What a classy lovely lady.

  • Gloria Steinem - In the mid'80s I was at the San Jose, CA airport to pick up a friend. Standing next to the luggage carousel I saw a woman waiting for her luggage. She had a carry-on in one hand and she tried to retrieve a big suitcase with the other one. I told her I could help and stepped up to assist her. She said she didn't really need help but she allowed me to grab the suitcase anyway and thanked me. As she wheeled it toward the door, I began to think she looked familiar. By the time she got to the waiting limousine outside, I realized I had just helped the famous women's rights advocate, Gloria Steinem.

  • Paul Shaffer - I met him at Union Station in Indianapolis, IN in 1989. He was nice and sat and talked to me for about ten minutes or so. Very nice guy!

  • George Strait - I saw him while at a San Antonio Spurs Game. Very Low key and tried not to draw attention to himself. He has also came to my work place, Sportsman's Warehouse. He is always very nice every time he comes in, and seems to be very down to earth. He is into hunting on his ranch in Texas so he stops in from time to time for some gear. Great guy and I will always be a fan.
