I Met a Hero: My Lexington Comic & Toy Convention 2017 Experience

Well I met another hero of mine Sunday.
Mr. Lee Majors, star of The Six Million Dollar Man, The Fall Guy, The Big Valley, Raven, several movies and TV guest spots, and most recently, Ash vs Evil Dead.
Lee was appearing at the Lexington ComicCon in Kentucky.
He was taking pictures with fans, signing autographs, and doing a Q&A with fans.
I first got my picture taken with him, in which he called me boss (Wow!), and I thanked him for everything that he’s done. And he said thank you back to me.
I then went to his Q&A shortly thereafter, where I was able to go fanboy on him, telling him that two of his shows, The Six Million Dollar Man and The Fall Guy, were on in reruns in the mid to late 90s, 5 days a week, and that I watched and recorded them.
I told him both of these shows were two positive things in my life when I was in my early teens.
He told me “Thank you” and then jokingly said “So you were the one watching?”
The emcee jokingly said that I helped pay for Lee’s mortgage back then, and I said I was happy to do it, too.
I asked Lee about working with wrestler Andre The Giant on a two part episode of Six Mil, and he had a lot of good, funny stories about him.
Lee also talked about Kentucky a lot, saying “Go Wildcats” at the start of his Q&A.
He’s not from Kentucky, but he grew up in Middlesboro, and graduated from Eastern Kentucky University.
He said that when he went back to Eastern a few years ago to speak at a graduation, that he had a better turnout than Mitch McConnell did there that same day at Eastern.
All in all, he had a lot of great stories.
He later was doing a signing, which I also attended, because I wanted him to sign the picture that was taken of me and him.
When I got to him, he said hi and then said “Oh I remember you”. Then he signed the picture, and while he was doing this, I told him that I meant what I said at his Q&A.
He also told me that he had not noticed my Six Mil shirt when the pic was taken, but he liked it.
Before I left, I told him I loved him, and he said “Thanks Lucas”.
For me, as a fan of his since I was 13 or 14, this was a perfect day.
I was so happy.
And he could not have been more nice and professional.
Lee Majors is a class act.
I also saw several other great people there I’m a fan of, including several wrestlers and a few other actors, but Lee was the reason I was there.
Perfect day.
I will include pics from the event, including the one of me and Lee.
Love and Peace
