sorry I missed GW *waves*
Hi Simon. Yeah, those fleeting minutes of fame. One of mine was participating in a Pagan ritual, at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, and in Kennewick WA, over the bones of "The Kennewick Man" not long after discovery. And then meeting with tribal Elders of the native tribes in the area.
Many jokes were made at my expense, and, it was the first time my family (very xtian at the time) actually believed what I had said, that I was Pagan, after seeing me on Headline News.......hahaaha . I got a stern talking to.
haha! I know some of those tribal elders, you are still a story being told. lol
haha knowmad!! very cool. great guys, we had a good conversation, very "informal, cards on the table". I promised discretion, so that's where it ends..........but, there was this hilarious picture of 3 of us, in one of the local papers, where one of the elders is sort of looking at me, (we're standing very close, chatting), another guy is there, and I look like I'm about to bite his head off. I was much more muscular back then, and a lot taller that the elder, so it looked bad.
Truth of the photo, was he was right at the funniest part of a story, and I was trying not to bust out in hysterical laughter, until he finished.
Of course, they didn't print the fotos of us laughing and shaking hands and such, just the one where I look like I'm being mean.......well, we parted friendly, yes, we disagreed on a few matters related to the "find", but all in all, a very human, humane, and wonderful interchange. Please, give my regards to any who might remember me.
