Commendation by the Mayor of Nashville

It is not often that I get caught completely by surprise.

But the proclamation signed by the Mayor of Nashville, which was presented to me at this week’s Nashville Photography Club meeting, was a great surprise.  I am very honored by this commendation from Karl F. Dean, the Mayor of Nashville.

This document will get a special place on the wall in my new home in South Africa.

Thanks to the Mayor, to all my friends at the Nashville Photography Club and to all my friends at the Nashville Zoo.
