We are a recently retired couple looking to transition to the next phase of life. We hope that will include new ways of connecting with people, more opportunities for creativity, and continuing to enjoy life off the beaten path. We have a variety of interests: Debby collects vintage dishes and tablecloths and still works part time as a therapist; Jimmy enjoys cooking and dogs and long walks in the woods. We both enjoy reading, so if we are a guest in your home, we might spend some time on your porch or in our room catching up on the latest mystery. We enjoy music, but realize others may not share our taste (blues and classic rock), so we will bring ear buds!

We have both done a fair amount of traveling. We have both been to Europe, Canada and Mexico; Debby has spent time in Asia and Africa, and Jimmy has traveled to South America. We don't mind sleeping in hostels or a tent in the woods, although, as we age, having running water and a potty is becoming more important!

If you stay in our home, we will fuss over you a bit to get you settled. We enjoy getting to know people, but also are very aware of respecting your privacy.
