    Years ago, I met Tony Randall at The Children's Museum in Indianapolis. I went up to him to tell him I had enjoyed his performance in "The Music Man" that he was touring Indiana with at the time, 32 years ago, to be exact, the same year my middle son was born. I was really excited, he was standoffish. Of course, I realize I was interrupting his downtime, but as a celebrity, he was always "on". I didn't want his autograph or anything, just to tell him I enjoyed the musical. Anyway, I doubt that I would go up to another celebrity again.

    Oh, and I met former basketball coach of the Indiana University Hurryin' Hoosiers, Mike Davis. He was very nice, and gave me autographs for all 3 of my sons. I was impressed.

    I met and had my pic taken with Former Governor/Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge.

    Local judges and senator and state rep. are friends for years.

    Also have pics and friends with local tv celebs.

    That's about it. No one hugely famous.

    I met John Cleese in Boston. He was selling movies about meetings he made with another person. Of course, the movies were comical and Monty Pythonish....but I loved them.
