GUEST,Me Again Famous Mudcatters (152* d) RE: Famous Mudcatters 20 Aug 03


I think the nearest I got to fame was in about 1935 when Golden Spike Days was celebrated in Omaha, Nebr. This was in imitation of the Old West and early railroading (mostly the mythical Old West). I had been dressed as a cowboy (movies model, not a real cowboy, of course) and was watching the parade in downtown Omaha, and Barbara Stanwick, on one of the vehicles in the parade, waved at me. (That's what my mother said, anyhow, but she had a lot of stories, mostly embarassing to me, that I cannot recollect, and hardly lived up to).


I've subsequently gotten to know, or at least introduced to, about 8 Nobel prize winners, but they weren't as pretty as Barbara Stanwyck. One of these was 'Harry' {now, Sir Harold Kroto, see his website), a SteelEye Span addict, he once admitted to me.
