My husband Chris and I originally are from Oakland, Ca., and now live in Etna, Ca. That's an hour south of Ashland, Oregon. He's an attorney, I'm a school librarian - but we are sort of retired, and are musicians who travel frequently to the SF bay area and other areas to perform. We don't smoke, drink, use any drugs, we're acoustic musicians ((website hidden)) and we do house concerts, too, especially if that means a discount on our lodging. We have a ten year old lame dog, Chancie, who travels with us, is slow, lives with two cats and ignores them, and is under complete voice control. He adores being around other dogs.
