Retired couple from Texas ready to take care of your home as if it were our home. Non smokers. I retired from the Dept of Justice, U.S. Govt after 32 years. Jim was a Vice President of the Federal Reserve System at the time he retired. We are both in our 60s. We were both in management positions and traveled a lot for our jobs. Have been to Japan, Bali, Hong Kong, & Australia to throw in a few of our ventures.
After we retired we wanted to travel to the places we chose. We have traveled to many places and love the cultures we have been able to experience.
We have 5 grandchildren and 4 children.
Some travels have included spending a month in Italy and a month in France In 2009 we spent a month in Italy and 3 weeks in Greece. We met a wonderful couple in Greece for a possible future sit.
More recent sits include 2017 & 2018 gorgeous cat sit in France, April 2017 a sit on Bainbridge Island for chickens and a cat that had taken a vacation on his own before we arrived.
A 2014 sit was in France on a sheep farm for a couple that has and trains Border Collies. That was a wonderful experience and hope to return. In 2013 did a sit in NY for a dog and a cat, a 2 week house sit in France in Feb 2012 for a lovely couple and their cat. Did a 2nd sit in Was a wonderful experience. We followed this with another sit nearby with 1 dog, 1 horse and 4 cats. This was the 2nd time for this family. Obviously we liked them alot. We did a sit in Ireland in Oct 2011 for a cat and then to France for 3 weeks to sit for 4 dogs. Great owners and pets. Loved every minute.
In the fall of 2010, we spent 2-3 weeks caring for 1 dog and 3 cats in France. Had a wonderful experience & now have a wonderful new friend that I hope to visit in the future.
We did a house sit in Santa Fe, NM and had the pleasure of being included with their friends in some activities. They made us feel like we were old friends. There was Ellie, the Labadoodle that we took to the Dog Park to play with her friends.
We did another house sit in Ajijic, Mexico and had a wonderful house and pets to sit. The 2 dogs slept with us. We made many new friends and hope to return.
