When I worked at the NASA Security Office, i met several astrounauts. But, when "Tom Sawyer" was being filmed, the cast was brought to the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center and had to receive visitor badges from our office and I met Jonathan Taylor Thomas the young actor from the television series "Home Improvement."
I promise you that his mom was not with him because when he came in our office, he looked liked he crawled out of the bed, put on his clothes and left without brushing his hair or anything. He looked so sleepy and his hair was everywhere! But he was very polite and a cute kid.
I used to work in a bank that had a lot of celebrity customers. Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson were probably the most well known. I waited on each one of them at one tine or another.

Cardinal Sean O;Malley from the Boston Archdiocese, he was transfered here to replace Cardinal Law following all the sexual abuse allegations and the possibility that a priest fathered children and possibly killed their mother. The journey Cardinal O'Malley began is still ongoing because there are still alot of healing and hopefully mending taking place to this day.

In October 2011, I went to Swanton, Ohio to a Charity Ride for Veteran's Open Horse Show. Their honorary guest was James Drury-The Virginian, who starred in a classic television western which ran from 1962-1971, he was one of my childhood heroes who I watched with my dad in those days. I was amazed to his charms and character to be so much like the roles he acted out in the old western.

Bill Clinton --- the late 90's along with Philippine President Fidel V. Ramos we visited Corregidor island and he stood looking so tall, burnt (his face was red) and handsome. He saw where General Douglas MacArthur walked in the beach.. he was very friendly and smiled a lot and did give out souvenirs.
I once got an autograph from Bobbi Blotzer of the rock group RATT - this was back in 1987 and it was right after the concert. Also I briefly saw Fabio in person at a mall -- he was signing autographs and had to leave and he walked right by me with his bodyguards. There was a line about 2 hours waiting to see him!
My older sister and me met Kid n Play(Christopher "Kid" Reid and Christopher "Play" Martin) at a Bennigan's in Hampton,Va. They were really nice guys but the two ladies that were with them got a little catty. That was in the late 80's.

Can be someone political, celebrity, world leader or inspiring. So who be it? (I met Robert Englund in 2004 while I participated as a contestant on his reality show which was never released by the network).
