I Met Huell Howser

On Sunday I got to meet one of my many childhood heros, Huell Howser. That's right Huell Howser. Are you more surprised that I met him or that he is my childhood hero? Huell Howser is best known for his T.V. show on PBS, "California's Gold." I used to watch this show every weekend. One of the reasons why I love California history is because of this great program.
Huell has been just about everywhere in California interviewing people about anything he can think of. I am pretty sure that there isn't a place I have been in California that he has not done a show on, or at least it seems that way. His travels inspire me and make me want to go to all of the same places.

I got to meet this man because he was speaking in Irvine and my wife's parents got tickets for us all to go. In his speech he talked about his life and how he ended up in California doing a show about California. He was very funny and had a great outlook on life. I was honored to get the chance to speak to him and shake his hand.

Have you ever met someone famous who you admire for their accomplishments? Post a comment and tell us about it.

Hi this is Jenna!
It's really cool that you met Huell Howser.
I have never met anyone that inspired me.
I have met two famous people that I liked but don't that much anymore.
I think were going to have a awesome year.

Hi Mr. Laing,

It's Ty and you are lucky that you met Huell Howser. My parents love his show.

I met Mike Vitar. He was "Benny The Jet Rodriguez" in The Sandlot(it used to be my favorite movie). He was really nice and autographed some baseballs for me and my sister. He is a fireman now, like my dad. Hope we have a great year.

I would like to thank TY for actually responding to the question that I asked in my post. I want you to share something rather than just say silly things.

Hi! It's Darius.
I got to meet President Clinton when we were in New York. We saw him at Radio City Music Hall for the Christmas Special. We were sitting in the first row and Mom took me over to him in the third row to offer him Mom's seat so he could sit up front next to me. My mom said to say hello to President Clinton and I said that he was not the President because George Bush was President! My mom got very mad and was embarrased.I am very happy that you met Huel Howser.
Your friend,
Darius

cpYes, yes I have. And it would be Beakman of the Beakman's World show. I admire him because he's very funny but he can also tell you a lot about science and physics.
