The stars aligned in 2019 and I got me the walk-on I deserve.
When Natasha Bedingfield, fresh from wowing us at the American Travel Fair http://www.ipw.com, with a particularly stirring version of Prince’s Purple Rain, introduced me.
She pointed out my purple beard from the stage in the plaza in Anaheim http://www.visitanaheim.org.
You see I got purpled up in Huntingdon Beach http://www.surfcityusa.com the previous night when we had been entertained by Snoop Dogg https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2019/09/18/snoop-and-me-acting-the-goat-in-california/.
Well this is Southern California where the stars come out to shine.
And Lisa herself graced us with her presence.
Walk of Fame
Sometimes, of course, you just want to be on your own and she was good enough not to come autograph-hunting.
Greta Garbo, of course, made a name for herself for ‘vanting to be alone’.
But, alas, she has to share the Walk of Fame with hundreds of other Hollywood stars.
There’s Donald Duck too and a host of Asian picture clickers have gathered around Michael Jackson’s star.
But it is Marilyn Monroe’s tribute that I’m here to see… we’ve been inseparable the last couple of days https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2019/06/22/my-weekend-with-marilyn/.
In Venice Beach http://www.venicebeach.com, at her last resting place and now here in Hollywood.
This being Southern California the Beach Boys obviously wanted to turf up and surf up.
And here they are at lunch during the American Travel Fair. And I made Mike Love’s day by holding out my hand to touch him.
Jason Derulo also swayed his stuff while the best of Broadway also trod the boards for us.
So what could possibly bring down the curtain on such a show. We’d had Harry Potter and a light show at Universal http://www.universalhollywoodstudios.com.
While Jimmy Fallon on an audio gave us a behind-the-scenes tour of the sets.
And we were also enthralled at the special effects show with stunt actors setting each other on fire.
But it was the Happiest Place on Earth for the finale… with Mickey in Da House with his Disney pals… http://www.disneyland.disney.go.com.
Oh, I’m the king of swingers… I don’t want this party ever to stop.
