Our names are Rich and Shelley. We live here in Boise, Idaho. This blog shares our lives with our families or anyone else who finds this site. Included here you will find stories about our vacations, stories about our two dogs, Jake and Ripley, our thoughts and opinions about life and country and typical family updates for our friends and family to follow along with to help stay in touch.
Rich is a police officer with a local agency in the Treasure Valley. He works the swing shift (3:30 pm to 1:30 am) Tuesday through Friday. Rich has been a police officer since 1998.
Shelley is a physician at a local area hospital. Her hours vary week to week and day to day. Since her work is largely confidential patient information, not much will appear in this blog.
Jake is a pound dog we rescued from the shelter in 2001. He was about 6 – 9 months old at the time. He’s the brown and white dog laying down under the table.
Ripley is a pure bread Appenzeller. That’s a swiss herding dog. Ripley was born in July 2003 in Canada. She is in the photo, but is hard to see since she is primarily black and is hidden by the shadows under the table.
