1 - 6 Days, 7 - 21 Days

We are an active, fit, nonsmoking, retired professional couple who have been married for thirty years enjoying children, grandchildren, the families of nieces and nephews and our beloved pets.

My wife retired from the U.S. Postal Service and held the position of Postmaster among other assignments.  She then went on to become the co- owner (with me) and CEO of a franchise providing in-home care services for seniors.  

I began my career as an attorney with U.S. Dept. of Justice in various locations of the country during which time I maintained a Top Secret clearance.  After taking an early retirement, I went into private practice and became a partner in two different law firms.  I finally ceased the active practice of law to relocate and assist my wife in the care of her parents.

We relocated to manage the household, financial and medical affairs of her parents.  The passing of her father and relocation of her mother to an independent living facility now allows us to start a new career in house sitting and further our interest in traveling.

We have owned and cared for five homes including a large historic home built in 1904 and another one that required in-ground pool maintenance.  

We both enjoy keeping an active lifestyle by playing tennis and exercising at the Y.  Others hobbies include, reading gardening, music, cooking and travel.  Our children and grandchildren are a great source of enjoyment.  We also love pets and have continually had dogs in our household over the years of our marriage.

We look forward to a new career in house sitting as well as the experience and ability to travel that it will provide.
