We are Alison, a retired teacher and James, a retired librarian. We've lived in Iowa City, Iowa for the past 25 years. We are often called on by friends, neighbors and relatives to look after their mail, plants, and pets while they're away.
James enjoys reading, writing, and keeping on top of the news. I work part time at a community arts center and volunteer at Iowa City Public Library.
We are healthy, adventuresome, and enjoy being active (bicycle, jog, snow shoe, swim. tennis) though we are not athletes. Last summer we rode all 7 days of RAGBRAI, loved the challenge, but haven't taken a long bike ride since. Recently we took up pickle ball and think we could use a good coach.
Since we're retired, we welcome the opportunity to explore new places. We are easy going, down to earth, and dependable. As home owners, our experience has been, despite taking security precautions of making official requests to suspend delivery of mail and newspapers, we often return to find damp mail overflowing from our mailbox and past daily newspapers strewn across the lawn, soaking wet.
We can be trusted to look after your home and care for your pets so you can have "peace of mind" while you're away.
Please contact us if you have questions. Thank you for considering us!
Alison and James
