We are two retired local gov employees and are enjoying our down time, finally. We've had many tragic events and illnesses in the recent past and are finally attempting to enjoy life's little miracles. We have two adorable Yorkie-poo puppies 2 & 3 yo and they travel with us everywhere we go. We have 4 children (2 deceased) and 6 grandchildren we just adore. We did have horses when the children were here, but now we enjoy our puppies and the wildlife and traveling. We enjoy the ocean and have traveled to the OR coast the last few years and to Cape May, NJ for 2 mo vacations.
