May as well start it off with a bit of a Bonanza related one!
On one of my name tags (Yeah. I have a tendency to misplace them) I have I'm from Waycross, GA and we always introduce ourselves to our guests. Now if y'all could ever hear me talk, it is quite obvious I am not a native Floridian. An older gentleman spotted the town name and he chuckled and said "Man. I bet you don't even know who that man from Waycross is."
"Pernell Roberts?" He was looking at me so stunned and asked me how I knew that. I proceeded to tell him that it has always been my favorite TV show and I remember watching "The one with Hoss seeing Leprechauns" on VHS when I was little and how we wore the tape out when I was about 7.
"That's just amazing! I watched that show when it first came on. I was there when Adam left to that other guy-"
"Yeah! Candy! You got a good memory!"
"My Grandma wanted to name me Canaday but thankfully she lost."
And him, his family and I talked for at least fifteen minutes about the show and my fellow Cast Members (Co-workers) couldn't believe I actually could hold a pleasant conversation with no sarcasm involved (It was a hard feat but I made it) and they left, saying they were so glad I was the person I saw first because I had already made their day.
I can't wait to share some of my stories with you because good Lord if this ain't the most interesting job ever. Stay tuned!
