My husband Tom and I live in rural Vergas with our dog, Rousey. Though we usually stick close to home our interests are vast. All three of us hunt but Rousey hunts year-round as her squirrel friends keep her quite busy. The outdoors in general are our favorite! We are avid “bird people”…feeding and watching the many birds that call our yard home. Speaking of homes - most of our time is spent on ours! Several years ago, we purchased the old, Dora Town Hall and have been converting it into our tiny home ever since. When not immersed in a DIY project, I enjoy reading and writing non-fiction. Any spare time is spent with our wonderful families!
