hi ! I'm Deb and married to Gary. We're in this together. He does most of the fix ups and I do most of the on line work. He always teases me about talking too much. We're looking forward to having you stay in our Miramiguoa Home. We like to meet people and be friendly. We like the woods and rivers around us, for swimming, fishing, hiking, photography and relaxing around a campfire. I just started painting photos from our vacations. Gary enjoys hunting and gardening. We both enjoy music, food and traveling. Who doesn't? We're in our 60's and semi-retired.
