  • Robert Kennedy - In the spring of 1962 when I was 12, my mother, my brother, two of my brother's friends, and I were seeing the sights in Washington, DC. Among the places we went was the old FBI building, where we were part of a tour group. Completing the tour, we left the buiilding en masse, and the door was courteously held open by a man in a suit who wanted to enter but couldn't until the tour group had cleared out of the way. As we went a bit further down the sidewalk, my mother said to me, "Do you realize who was holding the door for us? That is Attorney General Robert Kennedy." I have to admit that at age 12 I was not particularly impressed. But how times have changed -- it is inconceivable that the nation's Attorney General would be holding a door open for a crowd of tourists, with no security detail around him.

  • Pierce Brosnan - My wife and I were vacationing in California in June of 1992. We went to this secluded beach, in Malibu, called Paradise Cove. This beach was made famous as the location for James Garner's character's trailer in "The Rockford Files". We were about to have lunch so I went over to the outdoor showers to clean up. I turned to my right and low and behold...it's Pierce Brosnan showering right next to me. He is not that tall (I'd say about 5'9") I asked him for a picture. He refused. Didn't say a word. He just walked away. I was determined to get a picture. When he walked past the restaurants large window....I took the picture while we were having lunch.

  • James Brown - One night in Compton, California James was coming out of the back door of a club he had just played at. As we drove by I was suprised to see how short he was. I waved and he waved back. Bless you, James.

  • Pat Boone - I worked in a bookstore in the St. Louis Airport. I looked out onto the concourse one day and noticed a guy in very WHITE loafers. As I looked up, he looked at me and I knew it was Pat Boone. As he was giving me his autograph, I told him that it was the shoes that did it. He said it happens to him all the time. Very nice man.

  • Milton Berle - I was at an animal rights gala. Uncle Miltie had been in hiding for many years but was at the gala. He had stopped smoking his cigars but would still have one in his mouth. He stepped outside the same time I did. I kept my distance but found out that he was a vegetarian for more then 50 years. This was around 1989.

  • Jacqueline Kennedy - Springtime 1968, walking along Fifth Ave.... When I passed by 1040 Fifth Ave....Mrs. Kennedy came out of the door of her apartment building there, said hello to me and jumped into the back of a taxi. This was before she was married to Mr. Onassis.

  • Wilford Brimley - I was living in Las Vegas, NV and was out at The Landmark Casino during National Finals Rodeo week when after a Moe Bandy concert I was joined at the crap table by Mr. Brimley. He was very cordial and a great crap shooter.

  • Ernest Borgnine - I was helping my sister move and we were driving south on highway 5 in California. We had pulled over at the rest stop that overlooks Mt. Shasta. I got to talking with some guy there about my ascent of Mt. Shasta a few years earlier. He seemed familiar but I was tired and couldn't recall who he was. When I returned to the truck my sister said "So what did he say?" I said "What did who say?" She said, "Ernest Borgnine." and it all clicked in. At that very second Mr. Borgnine knocked on my window and wanted me to retell my tale of the climb to one of his traveling companions. He seemed enthusiastic enough to do it himself right then and there. We chatted for some time. Depending on traffic his motor home and our moving truck played leapfrog for about 150 miles before we lost track of each other, but each time he passed us he honked, smiled, laughed and pointed at us. A very nice down-to-earth man who helped us enjoy the passage of time.
