Have you ever seen a celebrity in person?

Yes I have. I had a 5 minute conversation with John Wayne in the US Consulate in Barcelona. I spoke with Helen Hayes at a garden party in Cuernavaca, Mexico. I sat next to Orson Welles at the counter of Sanborn's Coffee Shop in Mexico City (he occupied two stools). I played blackjack next to El Cordovez (famous Spanish bullfighter) in Quito, Ecuador. I got kissed in the streets of Quito by El Vite (a famous Spanish bullfighter). I talked to Teddy Kennedy in Mexico City when he was on a mission for his brother. I talked to Marucio Garces and Silvia Piñal (two famous Mexican movie stars) in Quito. I shoot hands with President Kennedy at an Embassy party in Mexico City. I had a half hour conversation with Manuel Capetillo (famous Mexican bullfighter who was the brother of a friend of mine) in Barcelona. Had a meeting set up to meet Bob Hope when he was in the Dominican Republic during the revolution of 1965) but he had to cancel for rehearsals. Got movies of Bing Crosby and his wife Kathy, Phil Harris and Alice Fay, and the Cisco Kid during a parade at the Calgary Stampede Parade. Had my picture taken with Lee Van Cliburn, famous American concert pianist) at a restaurant in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Passed by the table of Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood at a Las Vegas nightclub. Took pictures of Pat and Richard Nixon in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico during an official visit (was about 50 feet away). Other than that nothing interesting.
