Something about ourselves
We are a retired couple in our mid- sixties. Dale is a former civil servant and I, Mike, am a retired secondary school teacher. We are casual, non-smokers, respectful of others' property and travel without children or pets. We expect the same of visitors to our home. We are experienced exchangers. Dale is very allergic to cats and therefore we cannot consider an exchange where a cat has been a pet.
