    I enjoy animals, including my two cats, Leo and Leya. I occasionally rescue my neighbors' chicken - "Chick Chick" - when she wanders away from home and I hear her clucking outside my front door.
    To escape the summer heat during the pandemic, I'm soaking in an inflatable kiddie pool on my back deck! I enjoy these stay-at-home mini-vacations, watching cardinals, blue jays, and dragonflies while the breeze rustles the trees and banana plants. I believe in trying to make the most out of life's simple pleasures.
