Can you hike for an hour? Can you see yourself biking for fourteen days with two twelve-year-olds? How about walking nearly 9,000 miles around the outer states of the U.S.A.? Three times in four days in late August, strangers-on-the-move through Ozaukee County were on-the-spot interviewed for Spotting Wisconsin. What is a ‘challenge’ is personal. Hearing these people meeting challenges is inspirational.

Jim Falkner of Milwaukee sat next to me at a live airing of the humorous Wisconsin Public Radio show, Michael Feldman’s Whad’Ya Know? We ‘yacked’ a little before the show. It made me wonder, what does Jim know? So, a couple days later, I phoned to find out that he had been admitted to the hospital the next morning after the show. Change—it happens! I am making an intention to handle it better with Jim as a role model. (Jim and I are deeply saddened that Michael Feldman’s show of thirty-one years has been cancelled. This episode was recorded in Jim’s hospital room in spring of 2015. ) See this photo message to Feldman from Jim on the day I recorded him. ‘Like,’ comment and share at Spotting Wisconsin’s Facebook page.
