  • Hayley Mills - I drove with my family 600+ miles to see Hayley Mills in her play "The Bird Sanctuary" on 4/l6/05. I had the stage manager give her my birthday card to her and he put it in her dressing room for her to read later. After the wonderful play was over, she came out with her fellow players and saw the crowd of us. She wanted to go with them to eat but she very courteously signed each person's photo of her--when I told her I was the one who sent her the bday card she said "Let me give you a big hug" and SHE DID! She was so very, very sweet!!!! My family and I call her "Hayley the Hugger". Hayley, I hope you'll read this...........THANKS AGAIN, Donna in N.C.

  • Joey Heatherton - My wife and I went to see her opening at the Sands in Las Vegas. While waiting in line to get in, I went down to the flower shop and bought one red rose. We were seated right in front of the stage and after Joey performed her dance routine I wanted to give her the rose. However she left before I could give it to her. I was sad. Next came Jerry Lewis and Joey's agent came down to me and asked if I wanted to give the rose to Joey. I said yes. He asked us to stay after Jerry Lewis' performance. When the show was over, a security guard came and got us and escorted us up to Joey's dressing room. Her agent met us at the door and asked us in. She came over to me and I gave her the rose, a hug and a kiss. How excited I was.

  • Raquel Welch - It's one thing to watch celebrities that share your birthday perform, as I've had the opportunity on two occasions. I've seen The Buddy Miles Band perform in 1972 and Queen, on two occasions in 1977 & 1978. Of course, I had no idea that Buddy or Freddie Mercury shared my birthdate, at the time. But the biggest thrill was getting to meet Raquel Welch (I hope I got the spelling right). I already knew that we shared Sept. 5 and when I mentioned this to her, all she could respond with was "My condolences".

  • Vincent Price - While working as a waiter in Ottawa one night an old guy came in just before closing- it was Vincent Price!! I sat with him while he ate his hamburger and drank a glass of red wine (which the chef kept) in the empty restaurant. What an honour. Chatted about food and the theatre and the barns he'd played in over the years. Again- what an honour. Great guy.

  • Anne Murray - I was on a business trip and making my way through Chicago O'Hare airport late one night when, as I finally reached my gate, they announced another flight delay. I sat down and prepared for another lonely evening spent in an airport holding yard. Being Canadian, I immediately reconized the Canadian superstar sitting quietly across from me in the aisle. I smiled and said hello and drummed up the courage to ask her the all-time dumbest question, "Going somewhere?" She smiled and nodded to the simpleton, "Yes, she was." I then asked her for her autograph and had her sign a book I had bought for my daughter. Life is made up of important life-changing moments when you establish yourself as a scholar. This wasn't one of them!

  • Raymond Burr - Having some time to kill, I went to a meeting at a religious club on campus. I was surprised to find that Raymond Burr of "Perry Mason" fame was the speaker. After getting his autograph for my mom (really!), I asked if Perry Mason would ever lose a case. He replied, "Nobody bats 1000". I am still waiting after more than 50 years.

  • Jerry Orbach - I was a cook at the LAKE LURE INN in Lake Lure, North Carolina where a lot of the film "Dirty Dancing" was filmed. I sat at the hotel bar and had a few drinks with Jerry Orbach. He was a "helluva" a nice guy. Also met Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. Met most of the cast there, too. A lot of them were staying at the Lake Lure Inn. I was also the one that was catering them their food at the shoot. They were all great. I "partayed" with quite a few of the cast members. Wayne Knight was a blast and funny as hell. BEST SUMMER I EVER HAD !!

  • Ozzy Osbourne - An Army pal of mine was a roadie for a while working with Showco. He came to Detroit in September 1978 working on the Van Halen and Black Sabbath tour. My friend "Hudge" got me four backstage passes. Prior to the concert, Hudge took us backstage to see how things worked. While we were backstage, I had to visit the restroom. Much to my surprise, in walks Ozzy. He saw me and said, "Hello, mate" and proceeded to answer nature's call. Not the most glamorous of stories, but the closest I've come to a major rock star.
