The Real Deal.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Since moving to the Berkshires, in western Massachusetts, some eight years ago I have volunteered or worked at Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Boston Pops and any number of world re-known musicians, singers, and groups. 

I have also had opportunities to greet or scan tickets from some pretty well know people too. You never know who you will see at Tanglewood. Last night for a classical concert with Emanuel Axe and Leonidis Karavkos in a smaller venue on the grounds, I met Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue. It was close to the start time and the line was moving but there were many trying to approach. I looked up and saw Marlo Thomas, and said, hello it is so good to see you here. She smiled and moved forward. Then I saw her husband Phil Donahue. I am a fan and told him so and he asked my name and extended his hand. It was a magic moment. I also told him I admired the work his wife did with St. Judes. He said I will tell her. And then they were gone. Made my night......they are the real deal.

Those kinds of moments can impose wonderful memories to our lives, Sheila.  Like you, I've met a number of notable people, and how they interact with those they encounter often leaves an impression.

Morning Sheila.

Marlo seems to be a very well down to earth person, just like her dad.  Haven't seen Phil on TV in a long time, he seems to be the same way.

Hi Sheila,
How fun.  It's always a thrill to meet someone famous.  I was face to face with Robert F. Kennedy at a rally in Oregon the week before he died.  A bittersweet memory.
