I grew up in Colorado... traveled east to the state of Iowa for college and most of law school... and then traveled east to the state of Massachusetts with my husband, Dale. That was over 35 years ago. Initially, we lived somewhat inland, but we now live in a small town just a few miles from the ocean. Having run out of land to the east (without crossing the ocean), we've been here for some 20 years.
We live with our two cats, both of whom are spoiled rotten, just as cats are supposed to be. We spend as much time as we can, either ocean fishing or ballroom dancing; the cats spend as much time as they can, sleeping.
