      Hey there LikaNui!
      I lived on Catalina for most of '89. Loved getting out of Avalon and over to the Isthmus. Did you live there or just sailing through? Were you there in 1989?

      Don't remember if I already posted here about meeting Silvester Stallone and Bridget Nielson while working for "Island Expess" helicopter company. He sure looked short next to her. Just a quick 'Hi' in passing.

        I used to drive the Wiki Wiki bus! I had Babyface and his wife at the time (Tracy) on my bus. It was just me and them in the front unit of a double unit bus. They wanted something to eat so I dropped them off above Baggage Claim H and directed them to... Burger King.

        I asked him for an autograph and he signed a dollar bill and wrote 'Rob, Thanks for the Ride!". Looked me in the eye and said 'Very nice to meet you Rob." Thats really nice, eh?

        My sister and I met Pat Morita at a party at the Pagoda. Gosh I think I was bout 10. He was really nice. He was emceeing Hiroshima when they came to the Waikiki Shell. My family knew the band because some of them were from my hometown in Los Angeles.

            Duane Chapman and his crowd, I have met. Like you, I hope they have a hearty dinner. They are all in for a lot of probs from what I hear from a person who works for them. Isn't it traditional to give them a good meal before they go to the guillotine ?

              Met Vanna White at the same furniture store where I buy my stuff, Wacky Wicker in Palm Desert, CA. We discussed the pros and cons of various fabrics on the upholstered furniture. She's just your average "Joe the Plumber."

                Rave On, Barry! As far as dating yourself, I remember the "day the music died" very well. I was sitting in high school social studies class and my classmate Lupe walked in with tears and gave me the bad news.

                  Victorias Secret had a photo shoot at the resort next to me a couple of days ago. It was closed to the public, but hey, I live next door! They took some shots that you will never see within the pages of the catalog. I got to meet "the girls" up close! Yeeeeeeeeeeowza!

                    Just back from Vegas - sat next to Drew Carey (dining alone) in the coffee shop at MGM Grand - his show was there for a four-day run - very polite during a short chat and when asked for a photo and autograph

                      Did I tell you all about the time that I saved Joan Rivers' life?

                      One time, as I was slowly approaching an intersection, I saw her crossing the street on Park Avenue. I pressed the break, put my car into park, and waited patiently by the stop line until the light turned green and the street was clear of pedestrians.

                        The day the music died is today. It's 50 years today that we lost the great Buddy Holly.

                          Well...I didn't actually 'meet' her but, My mum worked at this hotel & resort in Bermuda called Pink Beach, and one day she had to go to the office and I was waiting for her in the car, and I was in my own world and when i snapped out of it I realised Chilli from TLC was standing in front of my car (it was parked at the main entrance), she was there for the Bermuda jazz festival and she was waiting for this guy to help her w/ her bags. i didn't say anything, I just thought to myself "hmm...she's much shorter in person."

                          also once when my mum was working at pink beach a few years back, she was walking around the property and this guest was struggling on his rented bike (or skooter/mopad) and it was John Travolta taking his son on a ride around the property. he apologised to my mum (he didn't hit her, but he got really close) and road off.
