I am a novelist and trumpet player and a basic "nice guy." My ranch is calm and I am calm...I like people and animals. I like to travel, speak Spanish, German, and Hebrew. I have been well educated and love movies. I have a housemate, Kris, who shares the home but her space is on the other side of the home and is "invisible" unless you want to meet her. Kris has Vera, a white kitty, and Betsy, a miniture Pomeranian. I have two dogs, Ollie, and Wendy, two horses, and two cats. If you are "pet sensitive," this may not be your "cup of tea." You may use the professionally equiped kitchen and all the stuff. We will meet your needs and cater to you. You are the only guest(s). You may hear me play my trumpet. I am a professional classical musician and I practice daily but, typically, not when you are around and not at odd hours.
