    Hello John,
    I so much loved both classes on OWL drawinng. I thought we could find those here to go back over the class. I wasn”t always ready to move on, sort of a slow learner. I didn’t see the donation part, so today will send you something as you are so talented, personable and just seem a all and all cool guy. My name is Kim Kitchen. I hope there is a way I can go back for a review.

    Thanks so much.
    Think I did register last week . Unfortunately missed the first class.
    Doing the Registration again to be sure I’m on board!
    There was a mound of extra work on my plate so had to miss the
    first one.
    Hope to make at least some of Tuesday’s class. Have a long standing
    Doctors test App; maybe a tad late. Sorry.
