Sean is 70 and a retired school teacher and an avid flower gardener. He was born in Coffs Harbour Australia. Jeanie is 66 and a retired mental health counselor as well as an artist. We love having people visit us and we are hospitable. People often comment that they feel very comfortable in our home. We have an outside cat and a few chickens in the back corner of the yard. The neighbor will feed them while we are gone. My retired sister, Nel, lives with us sometimes (and sometimes with our Mom in Florida). She may travel with us if she is not in Florida. We have two daughters with families on the north side of Seattle and they have preschool children, so we have toddler toys, booster chairs, and a portable crib. Our daughters would be helpful to assist if you request them to.
