My wife and I are both retired and travel several times a year. We recently moved to eastern Texas to stay reasonably close to our daughter and three grandsons now living in Frisco, Texas. We have started a small homestead - chickens, pigeons and rabbits; as well as some young fruit trees and vegetable/herb garden. We also have two adorable small dogs, a Yorkshire Terrier, Winston, and an apricot Pug puppy named Ruth Bader Ginsburg or Ruthi.
Our Home & Location
2,000 SF ranch, 3 BR, 2 BA on a 2.3 acre homestead located in the picturesque small town of Mt Vernon, Texas. Grocery, gas, several local eateries are five minutes away. Enjoy coffee and breakfast around the historic town square located 0.5 mile away. Expanded shopping is a 20 minute drive east to Mt Pleasant.
Bob Sandlin State Park is 15 minutes south, providing water sports and excellent fishing. Dallas is two hours drive east on I-30. Austin is about four hours south....

Responsibilities & Pets
12 laying hens, 2 pigeons and 2 rabbits. Feeding is easy and only takes about 15 minutes. I will clean out the henhouse and hutches prior to leaving, so the nasty part is taken care of. You can enjoy free and fresh eggs during your stay.
Water plants in greenhouse and garden. Again, about 15 minutes work and the fruits and vegetables of your labor are yours to enjoy.
