Harrison Ford - Harrison Ford grew up in the upper class neighborhoods of the North Shore of Chicago. Ford's Upper Crust upbringing afforded him quite a knowledge of the surrounding state, Wisconsin's spectacular north woods areas and since he appreciated the north, he's built a respectable waterfront home on a lake near our family's cabins. One fall, my brother and I were readying the cabins for the winter, picking up supplies at the local Ace hardware store when Harrison Ford was checking out in front of him. Of all things, Ford was wearing a "trademark" Indiana Jones type hat and when the polite-as-can-be North Woods checkout girl asked for his autograph, he curtly and angrily responded, "My signature is on the credit card receipt, that's all you get". It was neat to see Ford, my brother said but after that attitude Ford chose to show, we wish he'd stay in Hollywood where perhaps the fame he's gained with his public following isn't as offensive to him as it seems to be to him in our North Woods.
