If you were flying to your next cruise and got bumped up to 1st class and were placed next to a celebrity who would you like it to be?
I have soooooo many choices but I will say Oprah Winfrey
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
Good question, I'm not sure. It would have to be someone fun, but not too annoying, so that rules out Richard Simmons. Those shorts reveal more thigh than I would like to see. Maybe Dr. Phil, or Ty from Trading Spaces/Extreme House Makeover. Or Rachel Ray, she could give me ideas on the best places to travel and eat ($40 a day on the Food TV Channel).
Lena Horne, she has had such an incredible life and in her 80's is still one of the most beautiful women in the world....she can have the window seat, I'll take the aisle and right across would be Halle Berry and on the other side of her would be the top cardiologist in the world because I would be having a heart attack sitting between Lena and Halle so I would need the heart doctor
There are quite a number of folks I would like to sit with and I agree with CA that the Bushes would be on top of my list. We have had the pleasure of meeting and dining with the former President and Mrs Bush and they were delightful folks and I've meet JEB as well and enjoyed his company. I would however like to dine with Col. North, Sean Hannity, Arnold Swartzaneggier, or Dick Cheney. Agree with them or not, they are all very intelligent and interesting people.
Definately, without a doubt, it would have to be Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees. It's been a life-long dream of mine (well at least since I was 13!) to meet him in person, and maybe have him sing me a song. If he were to sit down next to me on a flight, I'd probably faint and miss the whole experience!
Former Minnesota Twins great and Baseball Hall of Famer, Harmon Killebrew. He was my boyhood idle and others I have spoke with that know him say he is a great conversationalist.
I was lucky enough to sit across from another Twins Hall of Famer,Kirby Puckett, on a return from Fort Lauderdale. It was interesting to know that the most enjoyable memories he had in baseball were the first time he put on a big league uniform and that you didn't have to carry your own bags when you traveled. His worst memory was waking up one morning with a blind spot in his eye. It was the start of the glaucoma that ended his career.

Robert, again, I think you misunderstand. The reason I pointed out that Jesus talks to many people as I am one that thinks he speaks to me. Others of differant religions do not feel that way. I also will not get into a political or religious debate as it is a futile excersise.
