HI MARTHA, I HAVE TO SAY THAT IN MY PREVIOUS LIFE BACK IN UK I DID MEET A FEW PRETTY INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE.
BEING A "SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS WOMAN" I HAD A COUPLE OF YEARS OF BEING COURTED BY POLITICIANS, AND EVEN ENDED UP WITH PRIVATE MEETINGS WITH THE THEN CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER AND THE PRIME MINISTER.
OF COURSE THEY DIDN'T TAKE MY ADVICE AND PROMPTLY LOST THE NEXT ELECTION!!!!!
HOWEVER IN MY PREVIOUS, PREVIOUS LIFE I DID MEET A CERTAIN PRINCE OF THE REALM - BUT THATS GUARDED BY THE OFFICIAL SECRETS ACT AND CAN'T BE TOLD FOR 50 YEARS
NOT BAD EH????

This is an interesting topic at first I couldn't think of any celebs until my brain kicked in. I was able to be on the set the the "Walton's" a blast from the past. That was interesting to watch and be on the set. Most recent would be politians. Right before September 11 the public could ride the Senate subway. I rode with Sen. Arlen Specter and his entourage. I must say he's quite a ladies man. I saw several other Senators who were well dressed and quite friendly. After 9/11 no more rides on the Senate subway, too bad.

My most famous person I have meet would be Michael Jackson in Walt Disney World, I shook his hand and took a photo with him, within minutes a crowd started forming and a car and guards showed up from nowhere and he was wisked away.

O.K. Everyone.....A few years back, I was asked to sing the National Anthem at a Texas Ranger baseball game. I was excited and very nervous at the thought of singing in a stadium ...acapella ...and knowing that there would be about a 3 second delayed feedback. Anyway, I put in my ear plugs and forged on. When I returned to my seat behind home plate, a gentleman across the aisle, stood up, walked over and graciously thanked me. It was George W. Bush....he was the owner of the Rangers at that time.
Wow... the things I did when I was younger!!!

Mimi, I have to ask how come you were chosen to sing, are you a professional singer and should I know of you.
It would never have been me, I can clear a room in seconds if I start to sing!!!
Wow, Lisa, Michael Jackson. I absolutely loved him in the 80s, whenever I hear any of his Off the Wall music I am 20 years younger.
I know you are really into tennis and although I've never met any of the players I'll always remember watching John McEnroe when I was at Wimbledon in my former years - boy did he have something!

I was asked to sing for the game through an organization that was sponsoring the event that night. THis was after Rose Ann Barr's "performance" and everyone was being really careful. Now, they audition the performer and have them follow some guidelines.
I am certainly not a professional. My college major was in the Performing Arts/Voice. I do still sing tho and enjoy it very much. I have been asked to sing for other sporting events......but my nerves can't take it. I have great respect for those who stand out there facing thousands of fans to honor our Nation.

I take it you didn't scream out the anthem then?
Seriously, I imagine your voice as a smooth southern Texan one. Very nice!

Hakeen Olajwan (sp?) - Rockets basketball player - I was taping a university class project years ago at UH's stadium. Him being there was a surprise. One of my classmates taped him running track (with his permission). All 3 of us got his autograph. I'm not a sports fan, so I was surprised he attended the same university as me.
"Mattress Mac" - owner of Gallery Furniture - Houstonians know that he makes silly commercials. My dad saw him jogging alongside a major road by himself.
Former Houston mayor Lee Brown - My husband & I flew on the same airplane with him to Baltimore. He sat in 1st class while we stayed in coach. I told my husband that I recognized him from his side profile. He didn't believe me until we saw him at baggage pickup.
Dave Ward - Chanel 13 anchor - Recently saw him at a restaurant. He sat directly behind me.
Not a local, but I saw Bob Dole at a strip center. He ran for president and spoke there -- basically, a small presidential rally that the news/radio advertised at the last minute. My husband + I happened to be near by. I took a few pictures and believe George W was there also.

GREYHOUND, YOUR POST REALLY INTRIGUES ME.
I THINK IT MAY BE SOMETHING LOST IN THE DIFFERENCES OF UK AND AMERICA, BUT TO ME A STRIP CENTER IS A PLACE IN A SEEDY AREA OF TOWN WHERE LADIES TAKE THEIR CLOTHING OFF.
NOW THAT WOULDN,T SURPRISE ME SEEING POLITICIANS IN THAT TYPE OF PLACE, BUT WERE YOU "JUST PASSING"??????
Posted 09 March 2005 - 07:39 AM
