We have been married for 34 years and are still best friends. We have been doing house-sitting for 15 years now, after selling a small hobby farm in Washington State. Linda retired from 30 years of teaching and Rick retired from being a road construction foreman and contractor.
We now have our own time schedule, a wonderful thing about being retired. We have refurbished homes, and sold them. The realtors letters of refernce are in this web site. We also have purchased a home for ourselves and are working on it, plus had a home built for rental property, that also has a shop for Rick.
We both are taking time to develop our artistic talents, in metal, wood and glass art pieces. This mature age gives us the freedom to travel and visit different parts of this world. Not having the farm animals is an adjustment, but that is why we look forward to taking care of other people's pets.
We are really enjoying being gradparents to our daughter's three little boys. We also enjoy our daily exercise and lead an active lifestyle. We participate in Masters Crossfit classes 3-5 times a week. We take pride in being physically fit and look forward to the challenges of caretaking other peoples' property.
