My wife and I are both
professionals, having retired from the U.S. Government. I was a
systems engineer and my wife was a systems analyst. She has a Ph.D. in
Human and Organizational Systems. For the past seven years, I
served on the Board of Directors for our 58-home community. We
are both fit, non-smokers in our 60s.
We have traveled
extensively; my wife has been to 30 countries. We typically rent an
apartment for our vacation stays, and years ago, we house sat for friends in
Pujols-le-Haut, France. More recently we house sat in Scotland for almost 3 months, and formed a friendship with the owners of that home. We love Europe, particularly France, Switzerland, and the British Isles.
We have lived in the same home for over 30 years, and have what we believe to be better-than-average knowledge of potential household problems and how to solve them. Over the years, we have done the necessary household maintenance, including minor repairs, landscaping, and a major kitchen renovation.
We are more than happy to care for your pets. At least twice each year, we care for one of three different neighbors' pets while the neighbors are away on vacation. We are partial to cats, in particular. We had two adorable cats of our own, both of whom lived to the age of 17 before departing for kitty heaven.
We are a very reliable couple, and you can rest
assured that we will treat your home and your pets as if they were our own.
