    Ever met a celebrity ?

    I haven't met any mega stars in my time, but a few lesser known almost celebs.

    Ralph Klein...........he was campaigning in a small town while we were driving through. He came up and shook my hand and asked for our support. I told him we live in Ontario and he said........."you are no good to me" and walked away......lol

    Joe Clark..............the Conservative Party called and asked if we would be home on Saturday and how the neighborhood was. I told them we would be home and it was a nice neighborhood. Come Saturday I had forgotten, and my wife was met at our door with Joe Clark and television cameras. It took awhile for her to forgive me for that one. I guess I didn't actually meet him......lol.

    Red Storey, Walter Gretzky, Gordie Howe, Carl Brewer, George Chuvalo.........all nice guys with lots of stories to tell.

    Who have you met ?

    Someone planted a tree a long time ago so I can sit in the shade.

    haha sags....what are you on today?...
    Not sure if he fits into the 'celebrity' category...but I had a nice little impromptu chat with bob dylan in a hotel parking lot when he rolled thru my little town a few years back. Being a long-time fan, people asked me what he was like. My response: after all these years, he was just like I'd hoped he'd be!

    Yvonne Cournoyer, Pete Mahovlich, Yvonne Lambert. They lived in my neighbourhood in the suburbs of Montreal.

    Gordie Howe - it seems that everybody has met Gordie Howe.

    Paul Martin.

    Ralph Klein walked past me at a Flames game once. Actually he staggered past me - he had fallen off the wagon.

    Had dinner with an actor who had a bit part in 2001 A Space Odyssey.
    If you have something to say - then say.

    My daughter met the young actor in the role of Bjorn on Vikings two winters ago in a bar here. He was filming just outside our city in -20 weather, poor guy.
