What We Like

We've been improving our 1925 home since 2003 and we're almost done!  We have a dog, a cat and four hens.   We walk our dog almost daily in our beautiful Shawnee Park.  Once in a while, we enjoy traveling and camping. Wayne's hobbies include watching a lot of the History Channel and his favorite sports are professional hockey, football and basketball (although Marian is training him to appreciate fine Kentucky collegiate basketball),  He also flies radio controlled planes and is experimenting with hydroponically grown vegetables.  Marian enjoys knitting, gardening, reading, writing and watching movies.
