  • Linda Ronstadt - I was heading into Central Park to see The Pirates of Penzance starring Linda Ronstadt and Kevin Kline in the early 1980's. I was walking fast with my head down, as New Yorkers often do, when I bumped hard into a woman walking in the opposite direction. I said excuse me, she said "That's ok, I'm in a rush, too". That was my first and only meeting with Linda Ronstadt.

  • Robert Reed - In 1990 or 1991 when I was working at Sears in Pasadena, California he bought a convection microwave oven from me - top of the line and he bought the extended warranty, too. I remember I kept thinking this can't be "Mr. Brady" I am waiting on, but then he handed me his charge card and, of course, it was him. I played it cool and was treating him like a regular guy. Then my co-worker came over and practically screamed "YOU'RE THE GUY FROM THE BRADY BUNCH". He was really nice and mentioned he had just finished filming "A Very Brady Christmas" and that "as long at they keep paying me I will keep doing them". Nice guy...sadly he died about two years later...

  • Mickey Rooney - Mr Rooney and his wife recently performed in St Davids Hall, Cardiff in Wales. He performed songs and entertained the audience with stories from his amazing 70+ years in showbusiness. Great stuff! After the show Mr Rooney signed autographs for a very long line of people. Near me in the line was a blind gentleman and as he reached the table Mickey stood up grabbed his hand and introduced himself and his wife to the delight of his blind fan. Probably the most famous man I've ever met - classy too!

  • Joe Louis - JOE LOUIS The Brown Bomber. One of the best heavyweight boxers ever to enter the ring. He had the largest hands I have ever seen on a man. When he shook mine it disappeared in his. I was absolutely stunned when he walked up behind our foursome on the first tee of the Meadowlark Golf Course in Huntington Beach, California back in 1963. He was playing with one of golf's first black professionals, Charlie Sifford, and two other black men. He was one of two people I have ever personally asked for an autograph and I regret to say that I have somehow lost the golf card that he signed for me that day. The first hole is fairly short at Meadowlark, just 340 yards and we were awed when his drive rolled up at our feet on the green as we prepared to putt. His drives were to follow us that closely all day long.

  • Shelley Berman - I was attending the Lucy-Desi Festival in Jamestown, NY...among the featured guest stars were Ronnie Schell, Tom Poston, Shelley Berman, among others. When I went up to shake hands with Mr. Berman, he had a diabetic attack and threw up all over my shoes! I felt so sorry for him.

  • Pat Nixon - As a pre-adolescent, I was in the National Spelling Bee in 1971. The spellers were treated to a whirlwind week of Washington, D.C. sightseeing before and after the bee, including tours of the U.S. Mint, all the memorials, a session of Congress (bonus dead person: I also shook hands with Shirley Chisholm), and the White House and handshaking with the First Lady. Mrs. Nixon, at the time, was less than two weeks away from Tricia's wedding, and boy, did she look stressed. She wore an aqua skirt suit and a frozen smile on her face. Even though I was 12, I could tell as she shook my hand that she would rather have been anyplace else. (No sign of Dick that day.)

  • Joe Theismann - I was working for a rental car company in Sterling, Virginia in 1978. One day, during the "gas crisis" of that year. Joe Theismann walked into the gas station portion of the shop and asked if he could get a fill-up. The mechanics and I were only too happy to help him out, assuming he would just pay and leave. After he paid up and just as he turned to go, one of the mechanics asked him a question about something he had done during a game. Joe stopped, thought about it, and then said: "That's a good question!" He then sat down in the lobby, and for the next half hour or so gabbed about his career, answered questions, and got to know all of us. It wasn't until we had run out of things to say that he finally gave us each a warm handshake and went on his way. Thanks, Joe. You made every one of us fell pretty special toward "our Redskins."

  • Robert Goulet - Growing up, my father was a stagehand on Broadway in NYC. When I turned 13, my mother took me to see the play "CAMELOT". At that time my dad was working that show. Before the show, we went back stage to Robert Goulet's dressing room. My dad had made arrangements for me to meet with him. He greeted us in his Sir Lancelot costume and invited us into his dressing room. What a thrill this was for me. I have several pics of him and I together on that memorable day. That was 43 years ago, Dad is now retired and I am married to a stagehand and my son-in-law is also a stagehand. I have met the biggest and the best and have many, many stories to tell about each and every one. maybe next time I'll tell all about STEVE and EYDIE.
