Hey Y'all, 

 No hiding where we are from! Yes, we are from the deep South-Alabama -and proud of it, so you will get the best in Southern hospitality, if you choose us! 

We will care for your home as if it were our own. Southern hospitality is something us southerns carry with us. It's not something that just happens when I invite you to my home.

We are non smokers, we keep our home tidy and expect yours to be likewise. We will respect your home, as you would ours and will leave it as we find it or better! 

Louis and I are followers of Jesus Christ. We serve Jesus through our local community of believers at Church of the Highlands in Birmingham, Al.

  Louis and recently celebrated 41 years of marriage! We are retired and looking for travel opportunities, and sightseeing on a budget. We also see this as a opportunity to serve others. We would prefer at least a week long sit, to give us the opportunity to explore your corner of the world. 

 I am a retired FedEx courier, and Louis is retired from Sherwin Williams as a chemical operator. We have traveled to Honduras, Mexico and Israel on mission trips and Italy, Greece, Hawaii and Australia for pleasure.

 Both of our mom's passed this year, my mom at 95, and Louis's at 91. We both shared in their caregiving, and we are finding that we now have a lot of time on our hands, and don't want to become couch potatoes!

 We don't own a pet right now. We have been too busy in the past few years to give it the proper attention. But you can't raise three boys and not have a dog, so we have owned our share over the years. Rest assured we would love and take very good care of your pet and follow your instructions to the letter. We do have grand dogs! Two of our sons own dogs and we visit with them often. Ezra is a 16 year old Boxer Lab mix and Barron is a very energetic German Wire Haired Pointer 3 years old. 

We recently had the pleasure of sitting with a sweet and energetic German Short Hair Pointer. The owners were very pleased with our care and asked us to come back for a future date. 

 We have posted background checks,  references, and pictures on our profile page. If you feel our qualities and hospitality fit your need, we would be honored to serve you.  We look forward to hearing from you!
