Ted Nugent.......

.......was just in front of me at the Walmart check-out line. He paid for the groceries and items of an older lady between us. Kinda cool of him. He was very polite and friendly to the lady and the check-out person. 
Nobody recognized him but me. I’m getting old.

No, I didn’t say anything to him. Let him enjoy his moment of kindness and anonymity.

    I talked to him briefly some years ago via the internet on NRA radio. I said his tv shows are obnoxious, but thanked him for doing so much for gun rights. He responded by advising me how I might aspire to be more like him. It was very entertaining, and yes he's a polite gentleman in personable conversation.

    I listened to a lot of his music way back when but  now I'd likely not recognize him. He seems quite ordinary.

    It's cool he's still a gentleman. Good story. 👍

    Met him and Jim Shockey at shot show a few years back we were all in a side room looking at stuff. Wasn’t a big crowd so we chatted for a minute or two he and Jim were both pretty ordinary guys.

    This is exactly what he looked like today. Slightly different hat and a camo shirt. I guess he cut his long hair. 



    Suppose he is down here hunting. 

    I have seen a few famous folks in my small town. Some for hunting, some for family, others for property. 

    Ted is the first I’ve seen do something for others. And I don’t even listen to his music. 

    Just say’n.

    His music was real popular on the radio when I was a kid. 

    I used to email Alice Cooper on his radio show. He answered a couple on the air. He was another home town  favorite way back.

    Both guys seem to have grounded values maybe not so evident in their public persona.

    I just looked up his FB page. Yep, he’s here hunting.  He posted these pics two hours ago.

    I never listened to his music, though I know what it is. 

    His act of kindness just struck me as out of the ordinary for most famous people. Especially when nobody knew who he was and it wasn’t an obvious publicity stunt.

    I know some folks that have met him and they all say he is a good guy, right after they say boy is he tall.

    I think he's a decent man, avoided drugs and drink and the nonsense that happened in the 60s.  I talked to him once in Raleigh, he invited me over to where he was playing to shoot bows.  He always registers under the name "Howard Hill" at the hotels where he stays.

    He follows the idea of walk low and carry a big gun. 😉

    That’s awesome.  I like famous folks that do good stuff when there are no cameras to catch it.

    I met Ted and his wife Shemane at the April 2002 NRA convention in Reno, NV. Spoke to both for a while. They struck me as being good folks. Bought and had them sign their cookbook "Kill It & Grill It"
