  • News: Mouseketeer Cousin recalls meeting Walt Disney...

    http://www.pal-item.com/apps/pbcs.dl...609250303/1008

    "I got to meet Walt Disney when I was with her," Myers said.
    The pair, who were close as children and remain close as adults, were visiting Disneyland.
    "We were walking along and all of the sudden someone called 'Bonnie.' We turned around and it was Walt Disney," Myers remembers. "He was the most charming person."
    Even before she turned to see who was calling her name, Fields said she knew it had to be someone from her Mouseketeer years because that is the only time she has gone by Bonnie. It was, in fact, Disney who asked Fields if they could call her Bonnie for the show, although the day he asked, she didn't realize who he was.
    She got to know him.
    "He was on set with us every single day," Fields said. "We were his children and he took care of us that way, too. He was a doll."

    I got to meet Walt in 1965. He served me and my family a drink at the Coca Cola Corner on Main St. It will always be an incredible memory.

      The only time I saw Walt in person, was in the basement of the Scientology Celebrity Center in 1966. I was walking down a hallway marked "clearing" and then I saw him out of the corner of my eye in a tiny office. He looked gray and tired, not like his photos. He was hunched over a desk wired to a small meter of some sort. I paused to tie my shoe and listen in, it seemed like these men in dark suits with black books were very interested in the hypnotic effects of the "It's a Small World" Song. Then a man with a gurney and a pile of clay pushed down the hallway and into the office. I saw a box on the shelf below the gurney marked "lifemask". Then something hit me, I blacked out and woke up in an Alley behind the Formosa Cafe my wallet intact.

        That's news?
        Good morning, son
        In twenty years from now
        Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
        And I can tell you 'bout today
        And how I picked you up and everything changed
        It was pain
        Sunny days and rain
        I knew you'd feel the same things...

          Must have been a slow news day. DId you notice that the ad at the top of the page was for a mortuary? Wondering if there's a connection here?
