Wordful Wednesday-{Blast from the past series IV}

Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, only WITH words. It’s for those of us that can’t contain the chatter, but in a good way. More info. in my tabber box titled WW on the right. Thank you for playing along!

I’m feeling like wrapping up this “Blast from the past Hollywood edition”.  With four installments, I’m feeling all blasted from the past out.

I don’t know if I ever told you that all of the photos I’ve been sharing were taken at a Celebrity Golf Tournament in Los Angeles in 1990.  My BBF’s dad secured us tickets, and it was definitely the high light of my Sophmore year.

{Hulk Hogan}

{Don’t even ask.  I have no idea.}

{I think these ‘actors’ were supposed to be characters from Xena:  Warrior Princess, a series on air at the time.}

I met Leslie Nielsen, Henry Winkler (another super nice movie star), Hulk Hogan, Deborah Van Valkenburg (played Jackie on Too Close for Comfort), Jim J. Bullock (played Monroe on Too Close for Comfort), and either Jeff or Beau Bridges, but I think it was both (Jeff of Beau told me I looked like Ann-Margaret…had to go home to find out who she was!).   And of course the others that made an appearance in my series, I, II, and III.

Such a fun day!

I think next week I’m going to have to feature my kids.  They’ve done a lot of growing lately and I have TONS of vacation pictures!

If you missed my post yesterday, you might want to hop on over.  My encounter with Cindy Crawford trumps all of the celebrity sightings of two decades ago!

Don’t forget to hop on over to Amanda’s place to see what she has to be Wordful about.

    Too funny! I was just telling the kids about Hulk Hogan yesterday. Gotta love the 80s with such descriptive celebrity names. Off to read all about you and Cindy!

    Oh, and I should tell you that my SIL has been stalking, yes stalking, Henry Winkler for years and even invited him to my nephew’s bar mitzvah. He declined with a handwritten note. Isn’t that so nice? (yet scary at the same time?)
