a morphing gif - me in to a Welsh Collie

According to the New Yorker, "on the internet, nobody knows you're a dog". Maybe so, maybe so.


It seems rather strange to have a page about me on a web page about me and really, once you get past the dogs, what is there (other than a lot of mud on your clothes...)

However, a brief bio...

I live in Vermont. I work, by choice, the graveyard shift with children diagnosed with emotional and behavioral disorders. I am reclusive by nature. I live on enough land that no one can see what I do on my property and where I never have to see another human or their effect on the land. I am a Justice of the Peace, able to perform both weddings and civil unions (among other duties.) I use a Macintosh. I think Sweatman's in Holly Hill, SC has the best pig on the planet. My house is quite small, unfinished, and very dusty. I collect bowling balls.
