Pinky's Fandance - Patty Duke

Once in awhile you meet someone (whether they're a celebrity or not) who is so kind, warm, and inviting, that you feel like you've known them your whole life. Of course, in the case of Patty Duke, I've been watching her onscreen since she played those twins on The Patty Duke Show (loved it!), so I guess I feel like I have known her forever. As I also read her memoir and had a huge crush on both of her sons, I felt that connection even more.
The typical celebrity booth at an autograph show is a celebrity behind a table signing autographs and posing for pictures. Not Patty. She was standing up among her fans and made sure to spend as much time with each person as she could (to an almost annoying level as someone trying to get back to my man's booth). Still, I loved how she made me feel when I met her and instantly felt like friends. I told her she did a great job raising her boys as I've had the pleasure of meeting both of them and they were great. I was thrilled to meet Patty Duke after so long and she didn't disappoint in the slightest.
