Mother getting worse

Drove back from Cleveland directly to my mother's home as she felt sick over the weekend. She is 94. (Little I knew this was the last time I was able to talk to her)

Sir Greg collars slave aaron

As requested by Sir Greg, I presided over the collaring ceremony of his slave aaron. Very moving ceremony.

C.L.A.W.

slave beau and I traveled to Cleveland for CLAW 11. I offered two classes on Friday and spend good time with many friends. Sir Greg, a Junior Master in the family, attended as well with his slave aaron. This event mark the first anniversary of our first meeting. It was very special to be present at the induction of Gay Leather Icon and friend, Guy Baldwin, as a member of the Leather Hall of Fame.

Master Griffin collars slave disir

The whole family went to Castle Griffin for a special reception to celebrate the collaring of slave disir.

slave jay comes for a visit

slave jay from New York City came for his first visit and it was a productive one. Everybody in the family likes him. I met him first in NYC in June 2009 and again in 2011.

C.C.F.F.

Charm City Fetish Fair - A small event but a very good one with many friends around. I presented my new class "Misconception about Master/slave Relationships". slave paul staffed the MTTA table and slave beau took his first glimpse of the Carter Johnson Leather Library. It was good to see Draco, a young dom I have been helping. He was able to volunteer and met Mama Vi at the Library.

Welcome back slave beau

slave beau is back home after spending several weeks in San Francisco.

Joint MAsT Meeting

At our joint MAsT Meeting, we did have a presentation on Leather Families. The panel included Master David Cook, Lady Lynette and myself.

Happy 4th!

America's Birthday. We hosted a Leather Family cookout. Master J, Master David and his slave t and Mistress Mary and her slave cita joined me, Fuego, and slaves david, paul and mordecai for a great afternoon (Even that it was so hot!). As always, slave paul did his best in putting together a good display of food. Both Fuego and slave mordecai has a chance to meet some of our closest friends. Happy Birthday, America!

Black Rose Presentation

We presented at the Tuesday Education evening for Black Rose. It was a very nice crowd. The presentation was preceded by a nice dinner with Danielle and other BR members.
