If you watch any of the medical
shows on OWN or the Discovery Health
Channel ya may see a few doctors and nurses on TV that boat
with us or hang at the Two Harbors Reef bar.
My wife works in Oncology and it seems she knows everyone in the medical
field here in the west.
She gets famous patients too.
Can't mention their names, but their stories are from fantastic, to sad where their only visitors are family
members counting their approaching
inheritance and needed signatures then vanishing into the night.
A very famous car customizer was a patient of my wifes in to get his cancerous bladder replaced.
The surgery removes one's bladder and replaces it with a new one made from the patients intestine.
Boxes of custom printed TV show t shirts and sweatshirts arrived at the hospital one day for the staff.
He sent us a set of Hollow Rubber springs to easily install on our truck after the wife showed him a picture of our truck hooked up to our wakeboard boat
one quiet night at the hospital.
Cool gesture IMHO.
Amazing, fantastic suspension enhancers. if ya tow a boat, perhaps Google
Hollow Rubber Springs and check them out.
We just happened to be at the next table from he and his family
over at the Harbor reef restaurant one summer evening. He invited out to his boat for drinks that night.
I was walking to my truck yesterday and Charlie Sheens agent who lives up the street from us pulled up to talk. I was heading to West Marine
and he asked to come along. Lance needed some new dock
lines and we'd knock down a few drinks at the near-by beach bar.
We stopped off at the Rudder
Room bar and 2 shots into Jack, he finally admitted Charlie's troubles were due to crack use.
"It's become impossible to be around him", and he's going to quit working for him this next week.
He still works for Charlie's dad Martin though.
Going to private school
my daughter meets the kids
of the famous, or some of her friends are semi-famous themselves. Often they are invited along on our boating
Yeah, Cybil Shepards kids
are dropped off / picked up in a limo every day.
The amount of kids used in Hollywood is amazing.
Watch the ESPN channel for 2 hours and count how many different kids faces you see in the commercials in that 2 hour timespan. That includes TV ads for motion pictures,, count the kids in that too.
You'll easily get over 80 perhaps far more. Remember that's only ESPN!
Try the Disney Channel or MTV,, far higher count. It's a huge industry employing bussloads of kids.
My daughter worked in Hollywood for about 4 years. Appeared in every movie
Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston made and TV series and commercials. She earned enough to pay for her schooling. She now has her doctorate in math and heads the wardrobe dept for a studio. Math major with a clothing
design minor at CSUN. Bizzare combo,, but it works and pays well.
She still gets recognised in public when the movies or her TV appearances re-appear on AMC or TCM or re-run on cable at night.
Old ladies give her their phone
number to give to the police on the show because they saw who killed her dad. That was the shows story line, not in real life, and some just don't get it.
In high school
, our daughter would invite the son of a super famous Director to go boating
/ wake boarding with us from time to time.
A neat kid fun to have along.
We had to arrange security
on our over nite trips to the Colorado River.
I got it through the local sheriffs office that had a list of LEO's that moonlighted off-duty.
That's led to some fastastic future well paying gigs for the LEOS BTW.
At the boat show
we noticed Kurt Russell checking out the vendors.
The drunks were loud, obnoxious and would not leave him alone. Russell kept moving fast, and the drunks formed a wake behind him in pursuit.
An avid family boater is a former St Louis Cardinal pitcher that lives a few doors down from us.
We like to hit a few drinks and lunch at a floating bar on the Colorado river.
Some in the bar that notice who he is need to recite his entire career to him.
He's patient, bends an ear and plays along, though the kids get annoyed because it takes their time from their dad
"Takes less time it's it's far easier to be nice to these people than to be an a hole" Jimmy Buffet told him once he says.
Seems to work
