visiting Wiz on California's Green

Huell Howser and Wiz

Not much to say hey, yet…
We talked for five minutes as he asked if I'd like an autographed postcard.
Not for me, but perhaps for the folks at "Walt's Barn." You went to see the Los Angeles Live Steamers and started with the Carolwood Pacific Historical Society exhibit of Walt Disney's trains. If you could make it out to the folks at Walt's Barn that would be tremendous. In the Venn diagram of the universe of Disney, I could tell you everything you'd care to ask about Walt and Trains, and more than you'll ever want to know about the intersection between them.

He then expressed what a great job the Barn volunteers were doing. I invited him back to see the new installation of the DLRR #101 'Combination Car.' His 4"x6" gift image of himself crouched in a field of California Poppies was inscribed To the folks at Walt's Barn, You ARE California's Gold! [Later I donated that card to the care of Nathan, the Carolwood Archivist.]

I forget what else we talked about, small talk about where the exhibit is an enclave within an enclave, that Walt was a founding member of the Live Steamers and how the barn represents the spark of imagination which would later become Disneyland as Walt's tinker space to putter about is now enshrined as the birthplace of WDI, Walt Disney Imagineering, known today just as Imagnineering.

I thought I was the last in line scheduled, but as the magnanimous gentleman he was, he would see those who showed up late as well, so I bid him safe travels as I thanked him for what I thought was a tremendous public service I for one appreciated in producing the environmentally consciousnesses arousing California's Green.
As I was about to walk away, an assistant offered to snap a photo of the two of us together, and as Huell welcomed the last visitors of the evening, the assistant asked me for my email address.

'twas much later, a few weeks perhaps, I was suprised in my inbox by the photo seen above. Thanks again Huell!
