ABOUT ME I am retired and now I have more time to garden, travel, blog, and enjoy the great outdoors. I am a loving, caring and sharing person and I value my friendships in high regard. An animal lover at heart, especially dogs, I am the dog whisperer of the neighbourhood. My friends love me because I am a genuine person whose kindness goes a million miles and back. I love looking after others so my guests are well taken care of. Come and knock on my door, I'll be waiting to welcome you.
