Kit and Nancy have had a wonderful relationship and marriage. It was love at first sight. Kit and Nancy love to cook and prepare meals together, to wash up the dishes together. They tell each other, several times a day that they love one another.

Kit and Nancy also greet many neighborhood cats and dogs by name, and will pet them as well. Being the animal lovers they are, they have a special rapport and communication with animals.

Kit and Nancy love to have friends over in the evenings, to watch videos and British comedies, and to share in their fine vegetarian cuisine. Kit and Nancy like to play various gentle rock and pop music and to dance a bit. In the warmer months, they will entertain guests on their patio and screened-in deck.
