I am also mom to Jake, an 8 year old Boston Terrier, to Luci, a 3 year old Boxer, Jester, a 4 year old neutered Tom Cat, and last but not least, Spooki, a 1 year old Tortoiseshell cat, who is very feisty and rotten.

We are 15 miles from the nearest grocery store, and we love it. We are a Christian family, we attend Cando Free Will Baptist Church.
