So with December creeping in and 2018 slowly coming to the end of the road (thank God), in spite of how crummy this year has been for me, I just want to say I'm very honored to have had the privilege to meet all these wonderful people this year, whether you consider them celebrities or not.

Caroll Spinney (and his wife Debbie):



Steve Whitmire:



Frank Conniff and Trace Bealieu:



Jason Marsden:



Tara Strong:



Veronica Taylor:



And Levar Burton:


And of course, the autographs I got from most of them.












Meeting them all put a huge smile on my face, and I thank them all for making my 2018 a little special in the end. :cool:
Great photos, and I really like them as well.

Bruce Springsteen
Gabriel Iglesias
Frank Oz
Bobby Moynihan
Bernadette Peters
Jason Alexander
Marc Summers
Fred Newman
Michael Moronna (of ‘Pete & Pete’)
Terrence Mann
Andrea Martin
Alan Alda
Steve Wozniak (Apple co-founder)
Dan Rather
Leon Panetta (former FBI director)
Frank Abagnale (the man whose story inspired the film ‘Catch Me if You Can’)
Ken Burns
Rita Moreno
Ehud Barak (former Israeli Prime Minister)
John Cleese
Ted Koppel

Okay, I think I’m starting to become overwhelmed of the amount of famous people I’ve met. Oh, I did birefly shake the hands of Cory Booker, and I did once see Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick in restaurant one time, but I didn’t talk to them (but my mother did).

Lucky you! Which one was the nicest out of all of them?

@datman24 Oooh, I’m jealous you got to meet Bruce Springsteen, Jason Alexander and Frank Oz!

My dad met Bruce at a book signing convention a few years ago. He mentioned he was one of the most down to earth guys he’s met.

We got to spend five minutes in a room with him privately after he spoke at the school where my father works. He was kind enough to sign stuff and pose for photos.

A correction:

My mom did not meet Kathleen Turner. I thought she did and asked her, but said no to that. Did just find out though that she has met other celebrities.
