Spotting Famous People...
As with most other people, I have over the years seen a number of famous people, and I include the key ones here.
I saw this famed actor at a fete in a noted Windsor girls school. I was hoping to get his autograph! When Moore completed his "speech" he opened the fete, and the school girls started rushing towards him screaming...in this insane melee I attempted foolishly to get his signature, and ofcourse ended up with a squiggle!
Ian Mc Caskill
He was a well-known tv weather forecaster. When I was in a book shop in snobby old Gerrards Cross (Gerrards X) I raised my head above a pile of publications. As I did so I saw a another face opposite me grinning from ear to ear with glasses on. I recognized him instantly...I was tempted to ask him what the weather would be like today...!!?
He was a well-known English actor. I saw him sitting against the brick wall that divided a funeral home, and St Mary's Church in Slough. He was absorbed in animated conversation with someone unknown.

He is a noted newsreader, and I saw him at Paddington Station. I did try to talk to him but it did not work out...Famous people must get irritated with members of the public trying to attract their attention. But there you are.....that is the price of fame...
At present, I cannot recall anyone else who I have seen who might be deemed well-known (apart from the Queen of England!). I just did the above piece for a bit of "trivia"...RS
I do not have much of a memory at all of childhood. But here is listing of what I recall excluding the actual recall of being born, or re...
Eton, and Eton College is very close to where I live. The latter is famous for having had many pupils who have gone onto to having very ...

From around 1966 to 1977 I lived in Royal Windsor. The following are two links. One on the town, and the other on the famous Windsor Castle...
