My first thought was: Sean Connery! Yeah!

.. then I remembered I would most likely pass out before I could ask him anything at all!  I mean, lets face it.. if he smiled at me.. you'd have to peel me off of the floor !  If I heard his voice pass out!  

Nope.. I couldn't ask him the time of day! heh.


Then I grinned and thought: Harrison Ford! Woof!

... then the smile left my face.. nope, that would be no different from Sean Connery (probably worse!)!  *sigh*

Ok, so now I wondered who do I want to ask a question to? 

The answer is:  that I would have questions for any celebrity ! 

I've been lucky and met many and gotten to talk to many and ask many questions..  however, there was one that I didn't get to meet but I did write to him and asked my question.

The actor is Red Skelton. 

When I wrote to him I told him of a dream I had about meeting him, and in this dream I went up to him and asked him, "since you have made me laugh and made me feel happy for many years, I wondered:  What makes Red Skelton happy?"

I received a signed photo and the letter below as a response from Red Skelton.

Maybe Sheri's question could become a new book.. Questions You Always Wanted to Ask A Celebrity...  I bet there would be some really off beat and funny questions asked! 

How about you? Who and What would you ask that certain celebrity???

Wow...that is about the nicest question I can imagine asking...and what a very sweet letter in return!
And I think you're right...that would make for one interesting book.

What a WONDEFUL letter, Pat....It is so nice to know he took the time and effort to write you.....It says a lot about him, doesn't it?
Like you, therte are many things I might ask certain people, if I had the chance...But off hand, I cannot think of any one! (lol)

Debi: I think you could learn a lot about the celebrities by their responses to good questions and silly ones.

Naomi: well I'm sure you ask people like Betty: how are you today? lol.. people forget celebs are people too!

hello Amanda: thanks for coming by. Well it is true i'd probably pass out if I met Connery or Ford so I remembered this letter from long ago.. the contest was a good outlet for it !

What a cool letter! It's always nice to see people who still take the time to sit down and write a truly personal letter. That's certainly one for the books!

I know I wouldn't be able to ask a celebrity anything because they always reduce me to a quivering wreck. I did think the letter you got from Red Skelton was absolutely charming though.

I start a free week tomorrow so planning to get AIM.

Cath: most of them, I have no trouble talking to ..but Connery and Ford would surely send me passing out to the floor! The first time I ever saw Deforest in person I couldn't look at him! My heart pounded so loud i expected him to jump up and start doing an indian dance! But once I embarassed myself by doing the impersonation, I got a lot better lol.. I saw my "calling" to make him and Carolyn laugh! But for the most part I just try to act the way I think they'd want me to.. respectful. (at least until I have actually met them.. then.. all bets are off!)

What timing. I just had a dream TODAY that I flew to Paris with Doris Day and James Garner. We had a blast !

It was one of the best dreams I have ever had. So, I guess my question would be to Doris Day.

"Doris, what is your favorite movie of all time?"

(Being a movie critic, OF COURSE I
would be dying to know the answer to this one) !

Daniel: lol.. well, it would be hard tho think that some reporter somewhere didn't ask her that! But I don't know i'd want to research every interview !

I just knew he was a sweet man.
I loved his show.

Your letter to Red brought tears to my eyes, because it was so honest and touching. Then I read his response, and remembered how funny he really was. You're a class act, Pat, and I am still in awe that you met Deforest Kelley! I can't do this meme, because I get all shaky and cold just being near hockey players, never mind movie stars!

Love the letters!

I'd like to ask Walt Disney for a list of movies he would have liked the studio to have made. They seem to be running out of ideas and I wish there was still a Wonderful World of Color/Disneyland show on TV. The crud they have on the Disney Channel makes it not even worth watching anymore. When I was a kid they had Vault Disney really late at night, now you'd be lucky to see even a good cartoon :(
