In my capacity as volunteer Secretary for my Daddy, I've had some interesting days. I got him in to this about 10 years ago, and it has provided him with a lot of benefits. #1) It has kept his mind and body moving in his Golden Years, and #2) He's made some serious coins in the process.
Daddy's business is an interesting one. Because of the nature of it he deals with people all across our beloved nation. He deals with people from all socio-economic/cultural/whatevers that share a common interest.
Now, Daddy is comprutuh illiterate! So, since I got him in to this mess I have remained his volunteer Secretary. I do his billing, website maintenance, and all of his computer letters, too. I really enjoy it. It's a small way of paying him back for all he's done for me.
Over this last decade we've dealt with some famous folks. If I started throwing out names, there would be some you would recognize. Some are politicians, entertainers, business moguls (one is the founder of a company that was a start-up at the time, that now shows films on the worldwide computer by the bunches).
Anyway, today I had an e-mail exchange with another famous person.
When I saw the name tagged on to the computer letter I wondered, "Hmmmm....I wonder if this really is (famous person's name withheld)?" Sure enough it was. I could tell by the actual e-mail address that I was indeed writing to a famous folks.
Said "famous folk" is a nationally syndicated radio personality, best-selling author, frequent guest on big-time cable news shows, an in-demand speaker, and I can tell y'all...one helluvagal!
Really. I swear, that lady is just as down-to-earth plain folks as she appears to the general public.
It got me to thinking about other famous folks I've run across in the past. I met Tom Landry once. Met Terry Bradshaw a couple of times. Really nice guys...nothing snobby at all.
A co-worker of mine at my "day job" once spent over an hour in her office with the great Walter Payton, and tells me that without a doubt he was one of the classiest, "Sweetest" humans that life ever put in her path.
Ya' know...it would be hard to be famous! It would be tough to try to go about a day to day life with everybody recognizing you, and wanting something from you. Heck, I've got some stories I can't tell, due to the nature of my employment...but some famous folks just tend to be triple-jerks.
But, not this gal.
Oh, BTW...she's a CONSERVATIVE! (Which explains much about why she's a helluvagal).
Maybe you've got an experience with famous folks you'd like to tell about.
Anyway...it was pretty dang cool to deal with famous folk that interact with common folk...like common folk.
I know that made ZERO sense.
But, it's been a few days since I posted something, and I don't want The Globber to forget me.
Y'all have a great evening, okay?
