Earth Day Memories, then and now~

Stuntman Dar  Robinson and Actor/Environmentalist Iron Eyes Cody, two kind and gentle men.   Many years ago in California, I had the privilege of meeting a person who was often shown in commercials to tug at the heart-strings of us all,  to treat our Planet or Mother Earth better.

It had all been […]
