    I love your raised beds! I think that’s what I want to do when I have room and a way to keep them from being eaten by my puppies! lol

    If Jan and Dean count as celebrities, yes, I’ve met some! A friend and I were fans in high school (still love that music) and we would go to every concert close to us! We’d take these ridiculously huge banners with us that we’d unfurl which always got their attention! Before we knew it, we were getting to go backstage at every show, sit in on sound checks, hang with the band. It was fabulous fun and Dean and they guys in the band were fun and so nice! Jan was always in and out and couldn’t stay focused on anything for any length of time due to his severe injuries from his accident way back when, but I was always amazed at how he could remember and sing every song without a hitch!

    That is one period in my life I will always remember!

      That’s cool that you traveled to see the concerts. There are only a few bands I’d be willing to do that for!

    We saw Fred too!
    A couple years ago Josh saw Kerri Russel at the PSU farmers market and DIDNT TELL ME because he was sure it wasn’t really her. Later that day I was reading or something and it said something about how she was here filming and had been seen at the market. I mentioned it to Josh and he said, super casual, “oh yeah, she was a few people up from us in line at Pine State”.

      That’s too funny! I wouldn’t be sure if it was really Kerri Russell too. I’d need confirmation before I got too excited. BUT it was very clearly Fred Armisen, without a doubt!

    we’ve seen Fred!! πŸ™‚

    I had Thanksgiving dinner one year with Willem Dafoe, he was here filming a movie and had nowhere to be so he came to dinner at my best friend’s house.

    I also met Mary Tyler Moore at Saks Fifth Avenue once – she was shopping at the cosmetics counter πŸ™‚ I went up and talked to her and she was VERY nice!

      That is so cool you had Thanksgiving dinner with Willem Dafoe. I love him!

    That’s so disappointing about the food at Bridgeport cuz we love their beer!

    Having lived and worked in LA, I’ve seen & met tons of actors, sports people, etc. You sorta get used to it. Then when I was away for a while, it got exciting again – mostly when you see them when you least expect to.

    It was funniest when I worked at a Paint Your Own Ceramic store in Santa Monica because celebs would come in all the time, and we’d have to interact because I was there to help them. You just had to treat them like normal people which was kinda easy because everyone around there was used to it.

    When I lived in NY, I saw Susan Sarandon and, later, Adrien Brody. Here in Seattle, I’ve only seen Michael McDonald from Mad TV.

    Hope you get your energy back! Thanks for the good wishes this week. I’ll let you know what I hear!

      I’ve been disappointed by Bridgeport’s food before. I wanted to give it another try. Meh. πŸ™

      That’s cool that you saw so many celebrities in LA. I’d probably be less excited about it too if it was a daily occurrence…

    I lived in Nashville for a while, so I would randomly see country music artists. I saw George Jones and his wife eating lunch at a Mexican restaurant outside Nashville TN. Vince Gill was eating at a small pizza place that I went to once. Martina McBride was shopping in Williams Sonoma with her daughter. I saw Ronnie Dunn at Costco and at the Nashville Airport with Kix Brooks. I also saw Keith Urban, Leigh Ann Womack, and Del McCoury (a bluegrass artist) at the Nashville Airport. While stopping to eat in Asheville, NC I saw Andy McDowell.

    The very first famous person I ever saw (I wouldn’t call this person a celebrity), was Amy Carter. This was during the Carter presidency and she was with her secret service detail, but neither parent was with her. We were in the Japanese Tea Garden at Golden Gate Park having a snack. They walked in and sat at the table behind us and I was looking right at her. Being only 8 or 9, I thought it was pretty cool.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I think seeing the Secret Service would be exciting!

  6. Diane Fit to the Finish

    I’ve met a few celebrities, and it was pretty exciting – even if I didn’t “like them” too much! It’s almost like they are magic or something!

    Your garden looks great!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Thanks Diane! πŸ™‚

      Yeah, isn’t it funny how you may not be into the celebrity but once you see/meet them it’s suddenly exciting!

  7. Jess

    The most famous person I have met is the mother from Everybody Loves Raymond. She is very short.

    I used to work at a restaurant that used to get a lot of celebs, but just NZ ones. I have served about 15 ‘famous’ people; singers, actors, news presenters etc.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      That’s cool. I never saw Everybody loves Raymond but I like her on “The Middle.” πŸ˜‰
