So the mailman just dropped off a heavy envelope, return address was Portland Parks and Rec, Urban Forestry Dept.
I opened it to find I had received an award about 16 years ago. It was a “Nine Year Service Award” from the Portland Urban Forestry Office, awarded in 1992. For nine years of commitment as a citizen who “truly speaks for the trees.” Is that cool?!
Guess it’s been sitting around somewhere all these years. Signed by Bill Naito, Mike Lindberg and Charles Jordan. Brings back memories.
Prolly the last thing I expected to arrive in the mail today. But I’ll take it! And add it to my wall of fame, nearly doubling its size!
Bye, I’m off to talk to the trees…
