Would This Be Appropriate?

Recommended Posts

Since we're discussing interactions with "famous" people I have had quite a few. 

Crystal Gayle once bought me lunch at a truck stop in Monteagle Tn. 

Met Sammy Kershaw at longhorn steakhouse in Atlanta and we just clicked. (I had never even listened to his music beforehand).

Ran limb lines on the Osage river and bird hunted (unsuccessfully) with Mel Carnahan (former Mo. Governor).

Had the pleasure of rubbing elbows with a large number of big name B.A.S.S. guys and quite a few other famous fishing people, either through hanging around the Hibdon's or through doing boat/motor repairs. 

All are, or were (some have passed on) just regular people that appreciate being treated like regular people.   I tried to do a freebie 10 minute electrical repair for Mark Zona, cuz he's a cool dude and I like him alot....but he wouldn't have it.   

Notoriety doesn't change people, it just changes how OTHER people react to them.

I've bailed my older kids out a couple times.  No problems, they settled up when they said they would.  Sometimes when you're just starting out, things happen and you need a little help. 

My daughter 100%.  My son 0%.  Talk about different outcomes from the same parents in the same household.

Yessir, that whole "it's your upbringing" theory has been proven wrong SO many times.  

Also, some of the most rottenest kids grow up to be the most responsible adults.  Ya just never know.  That's why I'm a firm believer in rehabilitation in prisons.  Don't write off anybody because of their past.  Alot can happen to a persons mind in 24 hours.

Had a friend that use to come by just to visit. He became State Representative.

My Uncle worked at the Pentagon. His Office was distroyed 9/11 but he had left for California 9/10.

Met a bunch when I worked for Johnny Morris.

The one I was concerned about is James Kroll. Not sure how many of you know him but he is pretty well known by Deer Hunters.

3 Paper routes, summer street crew, nursery and garden shop, Schwinn shop, GM and steel sales.

But only the bike shop, GM and steel sales were as an adult.

That's right I forgot that you did the bike shop gig.   We need another bike shop around here, the last one seemed to be doing good....but for some reason they gave it up.  I could enjoy doing that if there was any money in it.
