Margo at the Market



The other day, Page and I were walking into the market when Margo Kidder came right out the door with her groceries. Lois Lane! I wanted to say hi and tell her I thought she did great on the recent episode of Brothers and Sisters when she smoked pot with Sally Fields. You know, she only lives a couple blocks from us, so it wasn't like the first time I've seen her. I've even said a few words to her at work when she came in looking for service. I also ran into Peter Fonda in town before too. Lacey and Sean would see Dennis Quaid and Paul Mitchell when they worked at the Dairy Queen. A lot of celebrities around here. Just a couple months ago I was in the same resturant with Senator Alan Simpson in Wyoming. I have to admit that was more exciting than seeing any movie/tv star. I wanted to go up and talk to him, but Page talked me out of it. "Let the guy eat in peace!" I guess she was right, but I would have loved to shake his hand. Politicians love that kind of stuff don't they? And if you saw a previous blog post, I about went crazy when I got my picture with the Governor of Wyoming recently. What is it with celebrity that makes us all excited when we see them?

Woah! That is awesome!
People always talk about running into celebrities, but I never do... I've never even seen Robert Redford. My only celebrity sighting was at the Cannes film festival, but it's not like I ran into anybody, I saw them walking into the theatre or out or restuarants from like 20 feet away and through a huge gawking crowd. Totally not the same thing as seeing someone in the raw, in a natural/casual habitat.
