We're an active, non-smoking retired couple that loves to travel and misses the companionship of fur babies. We've been house and pet sitting for 2 years and love the opportunities for us to travel in retirement, or extend our holiday time in a location. One such extension at a sit in England gave us experience with chickens and ducks as well as a trio of adorable shelties.
MIdwesterners by birth - Linda grew up in Wichita KS and Mary Lynne in St Louis MO. We've lived in Kansas City, San Francisco Bay Area (22 years there), Wichita and are now in St Louis City. Yes, moving is one of our skills but we have others!
Mary Lynne was a painting contractor in CA for 15 years. Some of those fancy Victorian houses there are her work. During our time there we also did extensive remodeling of our personal residences. We've pulled more than one toilet and demolished a few walls and can tackle most any home repair except complex electrical or plumbing. In Kansas we owned and operated a Budget Blinds franchise for 8 years.
We've been both city- and country-dwellers and still know the 10 things to do before calling the pump & well crew and how to get a skunk out from under a house!
Though not currently pet-owners, cats and dogs have been a part of our life and we welcome the opportunity to care for yours.
