I got autographs from two of my heroes this weekend.
Marty Sklar was president of Walt Disney Imagineering (the people who design and build the parks) for many years. He has been at the opening of every park since Disneyland. He signed a copy of his new book "One Little Spark" for my son and "Dream it, Do it" for me.
The other one was also an imagineer. Bob Gurr designed the monorail, the autopia cars and all of the vintage vehicles at Disneyland and WDW. Not to mention the "Doom Buggies" for the Haunted Mansion. A wonderful, warm man, he autographed a copy of a book he wrote in 1952 on car design. He was thrilled to see the book and told me stories of some other copies he'd seen. Library copies that were worn out because people had traced his designs so much.
