Sec-Treasurer

I have a cat who both craves affection and fears physical touch.  He solicits petting until he cannot endure the gratification any longer. When bliss overwhelms him, he strikes out and bites just for the relief. I draw so I do not  bite.

I am a photographer. I am Susan’s husband. I am a photographer. I am not good at traveling.

Too bad, I am Susan’s husband. I love the photographs that our students’ make. I am a photographer.
