Tell us about yourself:
After my husband retired from the USPS in 2005, we bought a new truck & a fifth wheel and traveled for 3 years. Then in 2008, I decided we needed a home base, so we lived in Fredonia, Az. until September of 2013. Fredonia is a very small town located just south of the Utah state line from Kanab, Utah (Home of The Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.) My husband and I have been very active in volunteering there for many years. and enjoyed every minute of it. It is a wonderful place, any-one who gets a chance to visit there should definitely do it. It will renew your faith in mankind. I have 5 grandchildren, 21, 17, 9 and 5 year old fraternal twins. Oddly enough my other daughter-in-law is expecting fraternal twins also in January. What are the chances? So we moved here to Stockton last October. We are so much closer to my two sons and their wives and families here. Unfortunately my husband never had children but he has 2 brothers and tons of nieces & nephews who live in the area. I missed them terribly while we were traveling and living in AZ. We own a mixed breed dog named Roxy, she was adopted from the Tooele County Animal Shelter just a little over 7 years ago. She is such a sweetheart and she makes us laugh with her antics. We also have a 6 year old medium hair orange tabby. We found him when he was very tiny, all alone and covered with stickers and burrs. We had stopped at the Yuba Lake State Park, UT. C. G. for the night. This was not a place we usually stopped at but we were very tired so we did. My husband took his time driving through the almost empty C. G. looking for a perfect spot and finally decided on one. We had something to eat, then sat outside to enjoy the evening. We had Roxy tied close by us and she was bouncing around and jumping up and down and really being playful. Suddenly I thought I heard a faint "meow".. my husband said I was imagining things because we had recently lost our cat Hooch of kidney failure. He was 18 1/2 and I was still grieving. But no. I heard it again and started walking toward it.. there was this little tiny thing meowing away and not afraid at all. I picked him up even with all the burrs, and since we still had cat food left from our deceased cat I fed him and gave him water. He was ravenous. I tried to get the burrs out but they weren't coming. I immediately told my husband we were taking him home with us. The next day we arrived home and after a trip to Best Friends, who shaved him for me, we began the first day of his new loving life with us and Roxy. We never did know if he was with people camping there and got lost or if he was dumped off.. but he certainly did not seem to be feral. So we all live together happily in our nice little house and everybody gets along and I get to see my grand kids pretty often and I would say that "life is pretty good here!"
