I am a retired farm girl who hated weeding the garden but loved messing about with the animals. I always had the wander-lust and so followed my dreams to travel and live in various foreign lands. At the age of 44 I finally found the Man of My Dreams who rescued me from frustrations in the government world. After retiring again, this time from a proper job, I moved to the mountains of West Virginia with my husband and once again took up "farming" albeit with only abundant flower beds, an ample vegetable garden and three dogs and four "worthless" cats. I don't mind pulling weeds now.
