    Hello Valynne and Paul.
    Really enjoyed your report on John’s visit. I lived in New England for serveral years and love Boston so your pictures brought back memories. I know John from his musical performances at our church. Have a great day.

    Remember tax time is upon us.

      Hey Jerry!

      Thanks for commenting – don’t get as many comments from guys, even though I know a lot of my guy friends follow the blog : ) I will give Jody a call re: books – I think she has been slammed. Once she gets to my books I will send you the info….

      * Jerry does taxes out of the Evergreen H&R Block Office – he’s been doing this stuff for a long time and H&R Prices are very reasonable. I worked for H&R Block for several tax seasons in CA when I was a teen (QC and Reception). Did I ever tell you that, Jerry? Can’t believe that was twenty-some years ago…

    Hey Valynne,

    Went to the LoHi (Lower Highlands) Farmer’s Market a couple weeks ago and me some people who said they know you. They have a company called “Clean Getaway”. Mikel Stone & Lindsey Mann. Cleangetawaysoap.com. They said to tell you “Hi” for them.

    How’s the sale of Mountain Girl Organics going?

    Can’t wait to see you guys when you swing through Colorado soon. When will you be here??

    My husband and I are interested in traveling all over the US. I have been looking into housesitting. Would it be possible to do this for a year.

      Hi Denise,

      Sorry for the delay – I missed this comment as I don’t go to our “About Us” page often. There are house and pet sitting opportunities all over the world and each one is a bit different. You could absolutely sit for a year; one long job or several short ones and anything in between. You can find links to organizations that will guide you at the top right of this page. Good luck and keep us posted!
