John E. & Mary Keogh


John & Mary Keogh

John: Once a town gets to a certain size you just have a whole lot of bureaucracy. Well, I think I’ve told you about everything I know.

Q: What about you Mary, do we know everything about you?

Mary: I think pretty well, yes. My years were spent mostly with childcare and family. I really enjoy living where I live especially out here in Spanish Valley.

Q: Well you have a nice place.

Mary: We have lots of privacy here and, after you raise eleven children, privacy gets to be quite a priority for you. When there are always a lot of children around you don’t have very much privacy and their friends increase the numbers. I prize my privacy but I like people too, don’t misunderstand me, but I do enjoy my privacy here.
