Something about ourselves
We are Gail and Dan. I am retired from a professional career and am now a personal chef on a part-time basis. Dan is a Denturist and is also semi-retired. I am originally from the U.S and immigrated to Canada years ago. It is a wonderful country. Dan was born in Newfoundland, on Canada's east coast, but he too has made the west coast home for many years. We are non-smokers and would not want any smoking inside our home. We are clean and responsible and look after our exchange home as if it were our own.
