    Who would you like to have met ?

    Who in history would you have liked to have met and spent an afternoon with ?

    My choice would be Sir Winston Churchill. I always found his wisdom and intellect to be profoundly interesting.

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

    I've always said I would've loved to have lunch with Jackie Mason, Henny Youngman & Myron Cohen. A few zingers for sure!
    (note: you youngsters'll have to google those names )

    Partial list:

    Abraham Lincoln (of course),
    FDR,
    Barack Obama (still alive but counts as historical)
    Isaac Asimov (author),
    Saint Thomas More (jailed by Henry VIII),
    Lester B. Pearson,
    Stanley Kubrick,
    Ernest Rutherford (physicist and mathematician)
    Alberta Einstein (of course)
    If you have something to say - then say.

    On this subject-years ago I was Barberians Steak House and Jackie Mason was at the other table. I was probably one of the few who recognized the guy.

    I was in the restaurant at the old Sutton Place Hotel years ago and Paul Newman was at another table (on the subject of old restaurants).
