|Still Super at 50|
A reader of this blog....in response to my chance “encounter” with Julia Roberts at the Dolphin at Disneyworld....passes along this very interesting tidbit from his travels. We’ll just call him “Hal” as he desires anonymity:
Got a similar item in my life.
Years ago, I spent several hours on a flight from Sydney to LA sitting and talking to model Elle McPherson. Wasn't sure who she was at the time, only knew she was gorgeous, friendly & looked familiar. After landing, she thanked me for
being so kind and making the flight more enjoyable. Fifteen minutes later, I saw her photo on a magazine cover. My jaw dropped like anvil falling off of a blacksmith's stand. And not one shred of proof that I'd ever met her and flown
across the Pacific with her (& a few dozen other people)
thanks Hal, great story. I always considered Elle THE most beautiful woman in the world. Till Kate came along.
and on the subject of models..one afternoon on my Philly radio talk show Cheryl Tiegs dropped in for a visit. She was touting a camera...Canon or something and doing interviews about it.
During the commercial breaks she proceeded to take my Nikon 35mm and started taking shots of me. I’ve still got some of those shots and will try to get them screened for this blog in the future.
....she was a delight...down to earth and of course...a knockout!
