Fame fades so fast. It’s been a week since my 15 minutes of fame (on the radio) and I’m almost forgetting to write about it.
Mike Petersen invited me to talk about the Susie Forest on the Lands Council radio program on KYRS Spokane’s very local station. It was a fun experience. I met Mike in the lobby of The Community Building and I followed him up the stairs and through the labyrinth of hallways to the tiny studio. Since I was out of breath trying to keep up with his long legs, I was relieved that I was not going to have to speak at the beginning of the program.
When my time came we talked about the start of the Forest and about the goals. Then Mike asked about his favorite tree, the ponderosa. And I goofed – or was it a senior moment? I apologize Mike, I forgot one of the three planted in the Susie Forest. There is one along the Spokane River that was planted as part of a convention.
Because of Susie we also talked a bit about bicycle issues. It was a great 15 minutes and I hope people were listening. Sadly there was no one there to record it, so my 15 minutes is out there somewhere in the cosmos.
