As we get ready for StoryCorps coming to town next week, Mary the Kayak Lady and her mother Goldy stopped by to do a little recording of their own. Goldy is leaving town before the booth gets to town, so we tried a KAXE version of StoryCorps.
Mary and Goldy came in and we sat together for 40 minutes while Mary asked her mom some questions. Britta Arendt from the Grand Rapids Herald review was there, and we all enjoyed hearing the feisty Goldy tell her stories of conquering her bucket list.
Goldy is 86 and determine to try new things. Here's just a few things that Goldy has done in the last few years:
jump out of a plane
ride bucking bronco
drive a race car
ride a jetski
ride in a helicopter
I knew that I would enjoy this pre-StoryCorps session, but I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did! There was something utterly inspiring about sitting across the console from a 4'5" 86 year old woman that not only wasn't afraid to try new things, but LOOKED for them. You could see the pride in Mary's eyes and the surprise in her face at some of the things her mother said.
Hope you can be a part of the StoryCorps project, here in Grand Rapids, Minnesota August 29th-September 20th. Call us for more information! 218-326-1234
