I am a mother of 7, grandmother of 6, and surrogate mother to chickens, goats, dogs, cats and couple of pigs! I lived most of my life in the Pacific Northwest, but much prefer the warmer climate here in the South. Not a fan of the summer humidity, but find that so long as I have AC available to me, I am a happy camper! I love my critters and enjoy spending time, both IRL and online, with others who enjoy their animals. I am on 22 acres with extended family members; we live close to the Tennessee River.
