My first celebrity encounter (and this WAS fun!):  I met Roy Rogers and Dale Evans in a Big Boy Restaurant in Appleton, Wisconsin about midnight one summer night in about 1970 or 1971.   They were the star act at the Seymour County Fair and were staying in the motel (no hotels in Appleton then) next to the Big Boy and were getting a late night dinner after performing. They were in the booth next to the one I was in and they were very nice.

Can you top that?  Roy Rogers and Dale Evans! and at a Big Boy Restaurant!  You have to admit, that is a fun chance encounter!  Can you top it?

POST the FIRST CELEBRITY you ever said hello to.
