No, unfortunately I don't know anyone famous. I wanted to know any of the celebrities when I was a little bit younger, but now I don't think it is a good idea. I think they have a completely different life and world and there is no place for regular people like myself. But maybe I am wrong.

Normal life they must have to leave that behind but I bet they miss it sometimes being able to pop out for a pizza or something.

That is great. I don't have any connection to fame. Except for the fact that I play my music and guitar in cafe's, every once in a while. I write my own music and play some country and western songs that everyone knows in between. Everyone knows me, but I don't always know the people that wave at me. I am not famous, but I am well known around here. That is about as close to fame as I want to get right know. Take care.

My husband used to know Willie Nelson. This is true. He used to come down to Florida and party in a biker bar that my husband's club more or less *owned*. He used to stop in whenever he was in Florida and they smoked pot in the back. It's been many years now...over 30...but we have pictures of my husband in his younger days partying on with Willie. He's also met Mel Tillis but he didn't know him as well.

I just remembered that I went to school with Greg Hawkes of The Cars..rock band. I was a freshman and he was a senior and good friends with my boyfriend. Everyone thought he was a geek and my boyfriend only hung around with him because he felt sorry for him...and Greg had a car. Who knew he'd make something of himself?

i have ome touch with famous people from entertainment and news media but the terms are highly professional. it sometimes feels good to know celebrities but when you know then professionsly, you don't have stories about them to share.. even i don't have any stories for that matter.
