It all started back in the early 90's, 3 of my friends and I were at dinner one night and somehow we started talking about famous people we have met or seen!!!! Well one thing led to another and soon our little game as we called it went from meeting them and seeing them(meaning famous people)to being within the same air space as they were!!! So from that point on the "GAME" was on, we would each all scour the newspaper to see "who" was in town and doing what!!! So one of us saw that the Broadway play Meet me in St. Louis was coming to town and the lead actress in the play was Debby Boone, I said "Oh I want to go to that play, I have met Debby Boone before and it would be so cool to see this play as I LOVE the movie and maybe get a chance to see her up close again!!!! So we bought our tickets and to the Play we were going!!!!!These 2 photos here of Debby Boone was when we met her for the first time, one of our really good friends had met her in Calif. and they became good friends, so when she came to Phoenix to do a concert we got to go back stage and meet her!!!!!And as expected she is a real doll and just a very sweet lady!!!!In these photos she was pregnant with her first child.
Here she is talking to our friend's Mom and as you can tell in this photo, she is so very warm and pleasant to be around.
Play Night!!!! "Clang, Clang, Clang", went the trolley, Ding, Ding, Ding went the bell,Zing, Zing, Zing, went my heartstrings, From the moment I saw him I fell!!!!The Trolley song is one of my favorite songs from this movie!!! I love any Judy Garland Movie and this is no exception!!!!
I always save all my ticket stubs and my Playbill, we had very good seats for this play, 3rd Row!!!! As you can see we paid $34.00, back in 91 that was a high ticket price!!!!!
At the show there was a table set up selling Debby's new Children's book, all the books were signed with the bottom message, but I asked the lady selling the books if she wouldn't mind telling Debby that I am a good friend of her friend Lance and I was hoping to talk to her. After a few minutes out she walked!!!!! She was so nice and then personalized the book for our 3 children!!!!Back in those days, I didn't carry a camera with me every where!!!!So the signed book was the best souvenir I could have wished for!!!!
Debby Boone was not my first Famous person to have crossed my path, but I started with her because it explains how the game began!!! So Mondays will now be filled with pictures and stories of famous people I have met, crossed paths with or was within the same air space as they were!!!!!Remember my close encounter with Michael Jackson???? I posted those photos the day he died on June 26th.
