My husband David and I live on "The Mace Place" and raise cattle for show. We both enjoy the country life but just wish that once in awhile we could get pizza delivery! We have no children unless you count our fur baby Rowdy. He's a red heeler/blue heeler mix and he definitely lives up to his name! Two cats; Tigger and Piglet, that I've had since I started in radio. They are barn cats but still spoiled rotten. They bring the occasional "present" to me and leave it at the back step! (Nice!) Calving season is my favorite season and you can see a lot of my pictures on my Flickr account. http://flickr/photos/njmace
