I once delivered to Richard Burgi when he was staying in Vancouver filming 'The Sentinel', now most noted for his part in Desperate Housewives. I've delivered to several hockey players on the Canucks team as well. I ran across James Avery (the father of 'Fresh Prince') in a hotel one time.

Met R Lee Emery (tv's MAIL CALL drill sargent) on board the USS Missouri in Hawaii last winter. This was after I retired but it was still fun. He even made my wife take 2 pictures of us to make sure one tured out.

I met Dale Earnhart several years ago as he picked up his airplane from a refurbisher I used to deliver. I also met F. Lee Baily there.

Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is in Gainesville, Fl. Mr. Griffin owns a business here in town and is often seen there.

Pat Borders ( former MVP World Series) lives on some split delivery work. He is a great guy, down to earth.
