I’m Truly Honored …. Share the Passion!
Sharon & I have spent a lot of time working with kids over the decades, sharing our passion for our wild heritage with them but this is a first. An “impersonator” went in my stead and it sounds like he was a HUGE success. We want to thank Mike for sharing the passion though the lack of a mustache is the dead give away!
Today was dress as your favorite character day at my elementary school. I dressed up as you (as best I could!) and had the students who were still in costume come down at the end of the day while our librarian snapped a photo. I went into each classroom during the day and showed them my “Moose Peterson ID” (the plastic sleeve on my photog jacket). I explained that you were a world famous wildlife photographer—and that you helped save endangered species. This made you quite popular! I told them to go home and google your website so you may get 500 hits over the weekend!
