I've met mostly local Chicago sports celebs. I used to see the Blackhawks all the time in the early 90s (that's when they were actually good) and talked to Roenick on a number of occasions. Very cool. The other most prominent ones I've met are Carlton Fisk (very funny & cool) and Walter Payton (RIP. I'm so glad I met him because he died at the young age of 45).

I've met (and hung with) the members of Rush, Triumph and Saga (all rock groups and no, I wasn't a groupie).

My husband met John Candy several times in the 80s when he shop at the local market he used to work at. Said he was the nicest and most humble guy you'd ever come across. That would have been a thrill for me.

Actually, I ran into Geddy Lee again over the holidays (after something like 16 years) and chatted for a bit. I even told him about his fans on SO and he said he may pop in for a look.

I met him when he was 18 and was doing his book tour Fire on Ice (cocky overall because he hadn't played 1 min in the NHL). I worked Security during his autograph signing, not only did his mom control the whole show but he was so cocky and arrogant even with the small kids (3 or 4 years old) who just wanted to shake his hand.

No Book, no autograph and no time with his fans. Gretzky on the other hand stayed an extra hour to get through all the fans and then hung out for an extra 1/2 hour and signed Autographs for all of the Security/Protection Officers.

I've met:

Colin Mochrie (Whose Line is it Anyway?) - a true and FUNNY gentleman. What you saw on TV was what you got.

Wayne Brady (Whose Line is it Anyway?) - a doll (and a GREAT hugger!!).

Drew Carey - when I went to a taping of WL, he was answering questions from the crowd and he answered mine. He complimented me on my Indians jacket.

Melissa Gilbert, Dean Butler, Alison Arngrim, Charlotte Stewart, Hersha Parady, Pamela Roylance, Stan Ivar, Allison Balson (Little House on the Prairie) - All these cast members appeared at the 2005 Tombstone (AZ) Western Film Festival. I must confess that I was not very impressed with Melissa Gilbert. While the other actors were everywhere mingling with fans, posing for pictures and signing autographs, she was by far the most standoffish. She only did ONE autograph signing (the rest did 2-3) and everyone was rushed through the line.

Having said that, everyone else was WONDERFUL!! Especially the men - Dean Butler and Stan Ivar. Such sweethearts - no egos whatsoever. Not "Hollywood" at all. Which brings me to...

Brenda & Wendi Turnbaugh (Little House on the Prairie) - They may not have gotten much screen time as the baby of the Ingalls family, but they are the LHOP cast members closest to my heart. Ever the autograph seeker, I went on a quest to get as many LHOP autographs as possible. Since the sisters have long since left show biz (LHOP was their only acting job), it was hard to find them, but I did. It's been 4 years now since Brenda answered my letter, and we quickly became the best of friends. I've even stayed at her house!! They were also at the Tombstone event, which is the first time I met them in person. We're still very close today.
