For those of you who have never been there this place is loaded with history and the performers, whether you are speaking of music, film, or TV is just scratching the surface of the talent that has walked down Hollywood Boulevard, we arrived and I was truly amazed at the names I read on the stars lining the sidewalks, I could list a whole page but will only say that it was really impressive.
Another celebrity that gets very little recognition is a man named John who is disabled and works very hard cleaning the stars on the walk, he is missing a leg and each time I have been down here so has he, he is always down on the ground with a rag, brasso, and a brush making the stars shine, dragging his supplies and crutches from star to star, I really wanted to get a picture of him but when we saw him a young man was kneeling down talking to him, John moved his stuff to the next star and this young man stayed right in front of him and continued talking, about the time I got to him I heard him say to this young man “I really have enjoyed talking to you but really wish you would leave me alone right now as I still have a lot of work to do” I figured he had most likely been harassed enough and gave him a smile and respected what he had asked the young man, by not interrupting him again. He appears to be a great guy and I just wanted to give him a shout out and hope any of you who go to Hollywood will say hello to him and appreciate the good work he does.
Randy Ran Into Rambo
Cindy was Kicking It with Charlie’s Angels
Randy and I saw the Governator back before he got into politics.
And I had to sit down with some joker I ran into but his rambling about things I didn’t understand led me to think it was going to be a Dark Night, he kept interrupting me wanting to know why I was so serious and wanting to put a smile on my face, I was kind of glad to leave this guy sitting there talking to himself.
We really had a good time and on our way back up the street we stopped in a souvenir shop, imagine that someone selling souvenirs in Hollywood, but while looking at all the goodies Cindy picked up a large sucker and said Hey Jimmy take my picture I want a sucker shot, a man standing behind me popped off “looks like it’ll be a picture of two suckers” we got a good laugh and he agreed to make it three suckers and stood with Cindy for a picture, he was visiting from Ohio and was a really good man to meet.
I could go on and on but wanted to share some of our last full day with Randy in Hollywood, We saw stars from yesteryear and today, ate at Mel’s Diner, bought a few t-shirts and drove in LA Traffic which was not anything I would wish on any of you, if you ever get a chance to go and visit Hollywood it is worth it if for nothing else but to see the different people walking the streets that will make you remember how diverse and also exactly the same we all are. It is so eerie you will definitely see stars.
