We are Don and Iris, parents of 3 and grandparents of 11. We are non-smoking, non-drinking, quiet, clean, honest and dependable.
We have been homeowners since we got married in 1975, and have either renovated, added to, or built each house we have lived in. Don is capable of doing virtually any house related repair including electrical, plumbing, drywall, paint, etc. Iris is a capable homemaker and delights in keeping a clean and orderly house and yard. We also enjoy growing our own fruits and vegetables, specializing in tomatoes and grapes!
We have also owned a rental property and Don has been condo council president (doing a lot of the maintenace himself). Don has been a truck driver, countertop installer, electrical technician and electrical engineer, but his favorite job is Grampa.
We have travelled a bit and have cruised to Alaska when we could get a reasonable deal. We want to experience different locations and see life more like a local than a tourist.
Our experience with animals is limited, but we did live on an acreage for 13 years with our own cows, and regularly looked after the neighbour's horses, dogs, and cats when they were off to horse shows, etc.
