HOUSE SITTER AVAILABLE.
Due to a cancellation, we are available for
housesitting from mid-November and through
December. We are very tidy, careful, honest and
respectful people. We love animals and can care
for gardens too. I am a practical person who
isn’t afraid to rummage through the toolbox if
necessary. We are seeking housesitting

own home. Excellent references available.
