Personal Quote:

"Mostly, they know the face, but they don't know the name. Some people are funny. Some are nice. They don't try to take up your time. They say, 'I see you a lot and I sure enjoy you' and they're gone. It's my voice, too, that people recognize. I had no idea that my voice is distinctive in any way. But people will say, 'I knew you by your voice' ." (on being recognized in public) See more »
