  • Joe Namath - Back in the '70s as an early teen living by the beach in Fort Lauderdale we used to play football at the beach after school. Broadway Joe would walk the beach with his honeys and stop and play QB for us. I was 13 and caught passes from Joe.

  • Pete Rose - I was working at a pizza delivery place a few years back and as I was about to run a delivery I noticed the exit was blocked by a large Volkswagen SUV. I got out of the car to see if anyone was in it so I could ask them to move. As I stepped out so did the driver. He was wearing a nice tan trench coat and looked awfully familiar to me but I couldn't pinpoint who it was. He looked at me and I asked "Do I know you?" He quickly replied, "No." I said, "Are you sure?" He cracked a grin and said, "I bet you don't". It hit me two days later and I started laughing. I guess I won that bet.

  • Andy Summers - Back in 2002, I was part of an Art and Music Foundation, one of the presentations we made was Andy Summer Trio in Panama City. After the concert we went to a beach house of one of the directors and Andy came with us. Ricardo, my four-year-old son, also came with us and Andy told me that he has a son of the same age. So Andy made a good connection with my son and he held him and taught him some guitar moves using his personal Stratoscaster and I took some pictures. I told my son that when he grows up he can show all his friends the pictures of Andy Summer holding him and playing guitar with him.

  • James Drury - At a show in Lake Tahoe in the early '70s, my husband and I sat with some friends near James Drury, his wife, and their sons. My husband encouraged me to ask Mr. Drury for his autograph. After he signed on the back of my husband's business card, James Drury gave me a sweet kiss on the lips! That started a line of ladies wanting his autograph, and a kiss. Unfortunately for them, they only recieved his "John Hancock". I really felt blessed! Mr. Drury and his family were so gracious and courteous. I wish that more celebrities were like them.

  • O.J. Simpson, Nicole Simpson - I was a medical student back in the late 1980's in New York City, living in Little Italy, not far from the Village. The Rolling Stones were in town, and, as was not unusual, a rumor was flying over the airwaves that they were playing an impromptu gig at the famous China Club one night. So, I and several hundred other gullible people showed up outside the place that night....no sign of the Stones, but an unmistakeable O.J. Simpson came out of the place, with a tall, beautiful blond on his arm (who I only some years later realized was his wife, Nicole Simpson). They smiled and waved at the crowd. Looking back on it, it was a bit creepy.

  • Joan Collins - Back in 1992 while in Rome, I noticed a woman in a drugstore with a large white hat & dark glasses. Upon further investigation, my wife and I concluded it was Joan Collins. Upon realizing she was spotted, she left that store and went into the next small shop. I decided to follow, but as I tried to find her, there she was directly behind me. She quickly was in my face and started yelling at me to stop following her and to leave her alone. I was so intimidated that I never got a chance to even take her picture.

  • Whoopi Goldberg - I was in a downtown San Francisco bookstore (on the street where the cable cars roll past loaded with tourists going to Fisherman's Wharf), when Whoopi Goldberg walked into the shop. Our eyes met and I smiled. She smiled and nodded, as if to say "Yes, I am who you think I am". I wanted to respect her privacy, so I did not approach her after that, although I'd love to know what book she eventually bought.

  • Gerald Ford - My husand, a staunch Republiican, was invited by Ford to a bash in Washington because my husband contributed quite a bit of money to Republican coffers. so we went. The affair was held at the Capitol Club and the Vice-President, Nelson Rockefeller and his new wife, Happy, also were there. I was actually allowed to take my little camera in and so got several good pictures of the president and his wife, Betty. As the president took my hand and looked into my eyes, I nearly fainted. He was very tanned and handsome and I could think of only one thing to say so I said, "You are much better-looking in person than on television." I could have bit my tongue out. I wanted so badly to be erudite and impressive. He just smiled and said "Thank you" and then Betty spoke to me and I was even more tongue-tied. I am a Democrat but I have always loved the Fords from that day to this, and was ever so glad to meet a President of the United States.
