there is a 30 year old gelding that needs a safe place to land. we won't have room til jenny and winston leave. and there is a 16 year old deaf pom coming in tomorrow. he has been with the same family for sixteen years so he won't like it here. apparently they are moving and there is no room for him in their new home, he must be a big pom, sigh.
Ha ha - Caroline, welcome to the club. Carol and I have talked about this dream for nearly a year, and periodically surf the real estate market looking at the fantastic properties, even multi-home properties on tons of acreage, one can get for very little money by moving north or east. Retirement can't come soon enough for me (too bad one really NEEDS a pension to live on, even if collectively we'd be mortgage free!)
