  • Art Linkletter - We were waiting for a flight to Hong Kong (as I recall) in the LA airport when Art Linkletter sat down next to me. "Hello, Mr. Linkletter." I said.... and for the next 35-40 minutes, he entertained us with stories of his sheep farms and other investments in the Far East. He hadn't changed at all since I last saw him on TV - years ago. His wife, he said, can't/doesn't travel, but he seemed very chipper.

  • George Kennedy - In 1981, I used to work for a flying club at Van Nuys Airport (Van Nuys, California). One day, during my lunch break, a familiar voice asked if I could fuel up his Beechcraft Bonanza. I turned around to say that I was on my lunch break and saw that it was George Kennedy (Joe Petroni) from the "Airport" movies. I stopped eating my lunch and proceeded to fuel up Mr. Kennedy's plane. We chatted for a while that day and many more times after that. He was always very nice to me.

  • Sir Paul McCartney - In the summer of 2002, I was riding on my motorcycle to work in New York City. On 54th street, between 8th Avenue and Broadway, a limousine stopped in the middle of the block. I couldn't see who it was from the back, but I had a feeling it was someone famous. When I reached the corner, I saw that it was Sir Paul McCartney. He had stopped to look at some flowers being sold by a vendor. I jumped off my cycle, shook his hand and said hello. He was very friendly. I can't believe I got to shake the hand of a Beatle!

  • Ted Kennedy - On the second deck of Reagan Airport's USAir terminal, almost empty in the early afternoon, I was surprised to see Ted Kennedy approaching. I nodded with a polite recognition tilt to my head, only to get in return "Hi, John. How are you doing?" I was stunned for a second how he would ever know me as we never met. Then I heard, "Fine Senator, thanks for asking" from another John walking quietly and unnoticed next to me. Oh, well.

  • Tony Danza - Angelo's and Maxie's in NYC and Tony Danza comes in one night with a guest. People left him alone but I know my wife would kill me if I didn't ask for his autogragh. I turned and aked from the bar if I could have it and he called me over. He Wrote, "Lisa, Greg says you're the best" Love, Tony. Great guy.

  • Fred Haise - I work in a restaurant in the Clear Lake area of Houston, TX. Clear Lake is home to NASA and many of the employees and astronauts who work there. Fred Haise and his wife had dinner in my restaurant - in my section - this evening 7/21/06. He is very much alive and a nice guy indeed. I didn't realize who he was until my manager told me, but the man is beyond celebrity. He is a national hero. PS. He ate salmon, rice, and steamed veggies.

  • Harvey Fierstein - Myself and a few friends were at the Gay Pride Day Parade in Philadelphia, Pa. in June 1997. While I was waiting for my friends to get food from a vendor, I turned around and just about bumped into Harvey. He was carrying a plate of food in one hand and a drink in the other. I stood there with my mouth open and for the first time in my life, was speechless! LOL...Harvey politely smiled that wide smile of his and walked on. It was a moment I will remember forever...

  • Bob Denver - While waiting at LAX for a flight to Las Vegas, our gate had been moved several times due to construction. I recognized several passengers from waiting in line and if I saw them, I would let them know that the gate had been changed and where it had been relocated. One of these people was reading a science fiction magazine in a bar and I informed him of the change. I later struck up a conversation with him at the gate and we had a one-on-one discussion about my being from Georgia and how Las Vegas had changed since I had been there. He then mentioned that he was in Los Angeles to appear in an "Entertainment Tonight" episode and that was when I recognized him. He was much older looking than the last time I had seen him on television. The white deck shoes should have been a clue. A very friendly individual.
