CELEBRITIES GALORE ...!

It was another exciting day here in "Tinseltown" yesterday as I ran into one celebrity after another, first at the office and later on my way home.  The fun began at lunch, when Actor Matthew Perry took the table next to mine at the Hamburger Hamlet on Sunset.  But then -- hours later -- I had an even more spectacular encounter with a local luminary I like to call "SloMoe:  The Slow Schmoe."  SloMoe has taken up permanent residence at the Whole Foods store on San Vicente, where he specializes in blocking the aisles for hours on end.  He moves in slow motion, like one of those 16 RPM record albums which were obsolete even when people listened to vinyl records.  The only thing I can't figure out is, if he's so slow, how does he always end up ahead of me ...?!?

What an interesting life you must have! sloMoe looks like a couple characters I have seen around here! We went last nite to the Wilderness Pub and had a great hamburger! came with beer battered fries too. Last stars I saw in person were lou Costello and Joan Blondell---she sat next to me at the movies!  Oh how I wish I was back in CA---except for the traffic. After our accident this last week I don't know if my nerves could stand CA Traffic!  Barb

LOL, I think every store has a Sloe Moe.  It is interesting how one that slow would get in front of you.  Maybe its your obvious admiration! You just have to stop and watch him in umm in-action!
