Me and Barn (and Tim Conway too)

I got to meet these guys a couple of years ago. Don was frail, and a little shy, but very nice.

They were about to go on stage for a show here. I got backstage through some radio connections. Conway was cracking jokes left and right!

Harvey and Tim were incredible on the Carol Burnett show.
One of Carol's best friends is Jim Nabors, Gomer Pyle himself.
I had lunch with him, and I must say, he's one of my favorite
celebrities...he was telling all kinds of great stories about
Carol and Phyllis Diller among others. He was super nice and very funny!

Thanks guys. a lot.

FYI, many of the stars you see are very short people. I'm 6' 2'', but I ain't no Herman Munster (who was great in My Cousin Vinney, btw).


Little known fact..Chuck Norris is only 5' 2''. When Chuck Norris enters his room, he claps and the lights come on. Chuck Norris does not have the Clapper.
