Story 352
Lucille Ball, Ronald Reagan - It was in the '80s at Pope AFB in NC, Bob Hope was doing his show back then to celebrate the Air Force's 40th birthday, his guest stars were President Reagan, Barbara Mandrell, Brooke Shields and Emmanuel Lewis along with Lucy, I got the terriable task of directing traffic coming in for the rehersal and taping of the show, and in NC with the sun and heat I was sunburned, hot and tired. A limo pulled in and seeing them all day and knowing I could not see in I did not pay much attention to it. About 5 minutes later it was back, Out came Lucy with bottles of water for me and my freinds, she stopped and chatted as she passed them out, not only was I star stuck but I will never forget how nice she smelled, I kick myself for not asking her what she was wearing as I never have smelled it again. she was so nice, I told her how I love her shows, but not so much the "Here's Lucy Show" she laughed and said that it was not her favorite either, I asked her how Mr. Mooney was, she laughed and said as grouchy and lovable as always and then she hugged me. I got a photo with her. I also met President Reagan but it was only for a moment, I was a medic in the Air Force and after parking cars I had to go back to the clinic to work when in came about 10 guys (Secret Service) and a minute later in came President Reagan and Nancy. They chatted for a minute as they were waiting for his own doctor to do something. As luck would have it no one had a camera, but he did sign my Air Force hat. He said if anyone has a problem with it to tell them to call him. We laughed and he moved on.
