Legends of Aviation



Wahoo! We've made it to the big time! 15 minutes of fame! Call it what you want but what an exciting evening at the Beverly Hilton in January 09. Dick bought tickets to this charitable event so I could scope out the celebs. They told us we didn't have to walk the red carpet if we didn't want to. What? of course we're walking. Just before we stepped onto the carpet, a man came up and told Dick he was being inducted. They placed a medal around his neck, introduced him to the press and I proceeded to "work it" while the cameras flashed. This gave us entry into the social where the celebs hang out. I met Morgan Freeman, saw Harrison Ford with Calista Flockhart (I didn't dare ask for a photo), Dick had his picture taken with Buzz Aldrin (astronaut) and we sat with Dick Rutan (the guy who flew nonstop around the world in the 80s). We're still not sure why Dick was inducted. We think they got him mixed up with someone else. Oh well, we'll know when we don't get invited back next year.
