Brush with Fame Game!!!!Tom Selleck!!!!

In Dec. of 1988 we went to visit my Mom who was living in Southern, Cal. My Grandparents also came along on this trip and my Grandparents had always wanted to go to Hollywood and walk down Hollywood and Vine to see all the stars on the sidewalks. We all had special stars we were looking for and I found mine!!!! I loved watching Magnum P.I. so I couldn't wait to get my picture with Tom's star, never in my life time did I think I would ever get to meet him!!!!!
I know, How could I possible close my eyes when I get to get my picture taken with him....oh so sad!!!He was just so nice to oblige me with a picture!!!!
I had the wonderful opportunity to get to go hear him speak at a small gathering of Government officials from the state of Arizona. Here in this picture is the former Governor of Arizona Jane Hull. Tom was speaking about the importance of Children participating in athletic events but his foundation teaches children the importance of Winning with integrity and loosing with dignity. So he is a great role model as well as being a great actor!!!!

Jamie, I just had a chance to catch up on your blog. You're a very lucky woman but I guess you don't need me to tell you that. Thanks for the comments on my blog, it looks like you do the same for a lot of people. You have a heart of gold! Kathy
