  • Leonard Nimoy - I worked at the time in downtown San Francisco and was spending my lunch hour looking at fine china at Gumps Department Store. Suddenly, Leonard Nimoy asked me to show him and his lady friend some fine crystal. He thought I worked there! I graciously showed him around the crystal department, and helped him select a pattern. When it came time to pay, I shocked him by revealing that I was just a Star Trek fan, and didn't work there. I got a very strange look from him then, and blushed a deep red, rushing out of the store as discreetly as possible.

  • Bob Dole - In 2001, my wife and I were in Washington to see the inauguration of President George Bush. After the ceremony, the President was to ride from the Capitol to the White House. While waiting on the street with a crowd of people, we saw former Senator Bob Dole and his wife Elizabeth walking toward us. They stopped to greet us and even agreed to have their pictures taken with us. Although we saw many famous political figures that day, he was the only one we met personally.

  • Jim Nabors - My friend and I were on lunch break in Ravenna, Ohio at a McDonalds. We had just arrived and were getting out of the car when we both looked over at the car pulling out next to us and said that the driver looked like Gomer Pyle. Well, he saw us looking at him and he just shook his head yes.....its me!! He was performing at our local theater and was out getting lunch. Weird for our small town.

  • Woody Hayes - Once in awhile, our school, Woodward High, in Toledo, Ohio, would be visited by football scouts - some not recognizable. But one stood out, Coach Woody Hayes of the Ohio State Buckeyes. I was going to a class, and he rounded the corner and asked where the office was. I motioned, "Right through there." I shook his hand as he walked by. I was in total shock and told all my friends in class.

  • Soupy Sales - I have had the pleasure of meeting Soupy four times. The first time was at the Jersey State Fair. I'm gonna save the best for last. The 3rd time was in Philly at a non-sports card show. The 4th time was at The Doo Dah Parade in Ocean City, NJ where I asked him to say a famous line of his while I videotaped it. I said, "Soupy, I appeal to you!" and he replied, "No you don't!!" The 2nd time was the best, unreal and also on videotape. I asked him to throw a pie in my face and he did it. What a thrill!! He was gracious and humble each and every time.

  • Cloris Leachman - I was driving past the farmer's market a few Sundays ago in Brentwood here in Los Angeles. I stopped at a crosswalk and there was a very fit looking senior lovingly dragging a feisty toddler across the street. It was none other than the beloved "Phyllis" of TV fame. I leaned out the window and congratulated her on her record 8th Emmy Award which she'd won recently. She turned around, stopped, and thanked me warmly, and we chatted for a bit, right there in the middle of the street! She said there was no award greater than what she had in her arms, her little granddaughter named Hallelujah! What a great lady. Since I live in LA we encounter celebrities pretty often but that was my favorite by far.
