Gary Gray Hi Kathy, I was born in 1960 and remember meeting a lot of famous people growing up. After a Johnny Cash concert, Cash gave me and my dad a ride home in his limo. I was 5 years old and remember that like it was yesterday! I sat on Johnny Cash's lap and he asked me, "Boy, do you know who I am?" I responded, "Yes Sir, you're Johnny Cash!". I think he was surprised I knew who he was at that age. :)

Kathy Pinna I would have been surprised, too, Gary! ;) I saw Johnny Cash's limo on Pawn Stars a couple of weeks ago!! That's so cool - what wonderful experiences!
