Thread Name: BS: Six Degrees Of Separation
Subject: RE: BS: Six Degrees Of Separation
An uncle of mine lived in Victorville CA. Just over the hill was Apple Valley and Roy Rogers' ranch. He and Roy were good friends and had a joint gardening venture going. This, however, was not really a big deal as Roy and Dale were very public people and easily accessible by just about every one in the area. You'd often see them downtown or bowling or in one of the restaurants, out and about like anyone else. They were seldom pestered by fans or admirers and theirs was a condition that many celebrities only dream about.

My aunt and uncle, Roy and Dale, are long gone now and the small town(s) those desert communities were are now huge by comparison. I don't know if it's just because this is California but I have met many folks in the entertainment industries and if name dropping is your thing we could open another thread for that purpose alone. I think that might be interesting albeit I am sure there are many of you celeb types right here on the 'cat.
