Mary Ann & CharlesA few years ago, the travelling bug hit us, and we decided to see a bit of the world: Nova Scotia, Canada (many times), Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, and Mexico.

In late 2016, we sold everything we did not need, packed our bags, headed to Costa Rica for six months, and returned the following year for another six months. For three and a half years, we resided in a small Mexican fishing village between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. Then we decided there were more areas of Mexico we wanted to visit. At the moment, between house-sitting gigs, we are checking out Ajijic in Jalisco State.


Mary Ann

I have a wonderful family—a funny and interesting husband, fantastic kids and stepkids, and five grandchildren. Although it is difficult to be away from them, my husband and I chose to live life the way we wanted to, and for us, that meant travelling.

  • I’m an avid reader, love crossword puzzles, and play Scrabble.

  • Wine, water, and coffee are my drinks of choice, but not necessarily in that order.

  • Travelling was unheard of until 7 years ago.

  • I had two successful publications that I founded and operated, both in Ontario.

  • I am very protective of my husband, children, and friends.

  • My second husband, whom I married in 2008, has been my biggest champion. Life would not be as much fun without him.

  • I love to laugh!

I believe we all have a passion in life; for some of us, it is apparent from the beginning; for others, like myself, it needs to be nurtured; we need to believe in ourselves and have the confidence to leap forward in spite of obstacles and setbacks.

I am a Canadian baby-boomer-aged comedian who does not do winters; I enjoy playing the drums and tennis, laying on the beach soaking up the sun, watching the world go by, and spending my children’s inheritance.

  • I purposely fill in her crossword puzzles in ink with incorrect words that fit.

  • Playing drums is a passion of mine.
