Brett made quite the impression on me and 11 years later, I’m still intrigued. I met him back in 1990 at the Celebrity Rodeo up in Woodland Park, CO. He posed for a photo with me and left me wanting more. That fall, I traveled down to Arizona to visit a friend of mine, and decided I had to go to Tucson to see if I could find the Young Riders set. Well, being young and determined, I did find it and saw that it was a closed set. However, I saw a couple of people getting ready to leave so I followed them all the way back up to Tucson and begged them to let me come onto the set. They were very gracious and told me to follow them back down and tell whoever stopped me that I was with them. I was thrilled. I was finally going to get the chance to meet Brett again.
Well, turns out he was no longer with the show. So all my efforts were for nothing. I can’t exactly say that, because I had a great time hanging out on the set for two days. I had brought the photo that I had taken with Brett in Colorado and a very sweet gentleman told me he was a friend of Brett’s and would make sure the photo got to Brett to sign. Well he did, and Brett did sign it. And the rest is history.
