LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
 
You sent an email update for a job that we responded to and got
the job. We have been here since last May. The job is going well.
Without the Gazette, we would not have found this opportunity, so
we thank you very much. We will certainly be renewing our
subscription when we are ready to find our next caretaker
opportunity through the Gazette. Carl and Janine M., Port Leyden,
NY    

Carl and Janine, that’s great news! Please let us know how
it works out and if we can do a Caretaker Profile story about
your experiences there in a future issue of the Gazette.

Gary, I just wanted to give you an update on my help-wanted ad
responses as I am quite pleased. I only received two calls;
however, they were quality calls and one looks like quite a good
fit for my arrangement. The subscribers are quite qualified and
serious, and I am thrilled that I placed my help-wanted ad with
you! You can use this as a testimonial. Sincerely, Jill S.,
Tampa, FL

Jill, I’m glad to read that you received serious, qualified
responses to your help-wanted ad that ran in the Gazette. If you
find that you need to rerun and update your ad, please let us
know and we’ll be happy to publish your ad in a future
issue.

Dear Dunn Family, I've been subscribing to, reading, and enjoying
The Caretaker Gazette since sometime around 1998 (maybe even
1997?). I applied for a position that was placed in your
publication back in 1999, and by 2000, I had been accepted by the
property owner as his selected choice to be his property
caretaker. He went through "MANY" applications for this position
before finally narrowing his selection down to two potential
candidates. "I won!" That was over two decades ago! The property
was sold last year to new owners who have generously allowed me
to continue on as the resident property caretaker/security guard.
As long as I have lived here, I have paid no rent, and I've been
blessed to live on the property as if I own it! I can do anything
I would do if it were mine, including the building of my own
home! I also have the freedom to run my own small self-employed
business as a handyman and building and grounds maintenance man.
Thank you for making this happen through your awesome
publication. Thank you Caretaker Gazette!  John H., O Brien, OR

Thanks for your letter and for sharing your wonderful
experiences as a property caretaker, John. We're glad that The
Caretaker Gazette played a role in helping you to achieve your
great lifestyle. Please spread the good word about the
Gazette!

Wow, were you ever correct when you said I would get a response
to my cat/housesitting ad! I came home from a few days away to
find nearly 40 emails and several letters in response - I haven't
even gotten my copy of The Caretaker Gazette in the mail yet so
it came as a wonderful surprise. And, honestly, how do you ever
even choose? They all (or most all) sound absolutely great and
are the kind of people you would like to know and have in your
home. Thank you; thank you for providing such a terrific service.
Nancy M. Cedar Key, FL

Nancy, more and more property owners like you, tell us that
they have found their best housesitters by advertising in the
Gazette. Please keep us in mind the next time you’ll need a
cat/housesitter for your place in Florida, and please tell your
neighbors about the success you have had using our publication in
case they need a cat/housesitting person.

ICELAND

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED from April 20 – 30, 2024 in a beautiful
forest located in the countryside district of Borgarbyggo, West
Iceland, doing nature-conservation and environment-oriented
tasks. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (an Icelandic non-governmental,
non-profit volunteer organization) has been cooperating with the
Icelandic Forest Service and our groups of volunteers have been
helping out for more than 15 years, with very good results for
the participants, the projects and the Icelandic nature
conservation and reforestation efforts. The countryside here is
in a unique natural environment with a breathtaking landscape,
between glaciers and lava fields. The place is like an oasis in
the desert, as the weather there is often better than in the
surroundings. The area's landscape, nature and culture reflect
this heritage and bring history to life. There are many
possibilities for outdoor recreation in a true natural paradise.
The area is home to the most powerful hot spring in Europe,
Deildartunguhver. Among the natural wonders nearby are the
Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls, where water pours out of a
lava field over a length of one kilometer. Additionally, the
Hallmundarhraun lava field is among the deepest and best known in
Iceland. Langjokull (Long Glacier), the second largest glacier in
Iceland, expands over 950 km² and its highest point is 1,355
meters. In addition to the natural wonders, this area is also
famous for being one of the first settled locations in Iceland
and featured in some of the oldest Icelandic sagas. Historically,
its natural warmth made the location an early settlement adding
even more depth to its incredible saga and Viking tales that
surround the place. The region can be regarded as the setting for
most of the Icelandic sagas. The main tasks will be to maintain
hiking paths, build stairs, make, and put up signs. Volunteers
will also put up benches and tables in the forest. Other tasks
will be to trim branches and beautify groves that are located
near the hiking paths. Well maintained paths enable people to
visit these amazing areas without damaging the surroundings and
in addition our volunteers’ work helps to improve safety for
visitors. No previous experience is necessary, but the work is
demanding and requires that volunteers be in good physical
condition. As it is outdoors work, volunteers shall be ready to
adapt and be flexible with the working and free-time schedule, as
depending on the weather, we may not be able to perform some of
the tasks or activities planned. The weather is unpredictable,
and it can be cold and/or rainy, so be prepared to experience all
kinds of weather. We recommend bringing good walking shoes/boots,
warm and/or waterproof clothes (underlayers, overcoats, scarves,
gloves, and hats), as most of the tasks and activities take place
outside. For more information, please visit XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

PROPERTY CARETAKER PROFILE

Roy Fox: Historic Museum Caretaker 
Address: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Date of Birth: 6/23/39
Interests: history, radio, reading and writing
Quote: “This is my way of life!” - Roy Fox

Roy Fox in his King Manor office

	Situated in the middle of eleven beautiful acres in the center
of Jamaica, Queens, New York, a few short blocks from the Long
Island Railroad, stands the 18th century home of Rufus King
(1755-1827). For over thirty years, the home and grounds have
been lovingly cared for by Roy Fox, known as Fox, the live-in
caretaker and resident historian of the King Manor House. Rufus
King, one of the original framers and signers of the United
States Constitution, was an early abolitionist and an outspoken
opponent of slavery. Fox explains that although the oldest part
of the home dates to the mid-1700’s, King purchased the home
and ninety acres in 1805. According to Fox, Rufus King made
numerous improvements to the home and property, including
planting a row of 13 stately oak trees, one tree for each of the
thirteen original colonies. Fox points out several of the
magnificent oaks that survive to this day, providing shade and
adding beauty to the home, just as they did over 200 years ago.
	How does one find such an interesting and unique caretaking
position? In Fox’s case, it was a combination of serendipity
and necessity. After a successful career as a popular radio host
in Chicago, Detroit, and Pittsburgh, Fox and his then-wife, Mary,
relocated to the New York City area when Mary accepted a position
involving the restoration of the amusement park carousel in
Prospect Park, located in Brooklyn, New York. Fox’s wife came
east first and began work in Prospect Park. When Fox left Detroit
to join Mary in Brooklyn, the pair needed to find a home. Fox
soon learned from his wife’s boss (the Head of Prospect Park),
that a recently restored historic home was in need of a
caretaker. 
	Fox’s interest was piqued, and he quickly scheduled an
interview with the Park’s Commissioner for the newly formed
caretaker position for the recently restored King Manor House. In
1989 Fox was made an offer he couldn’t refuse: a rent-free
living opportunity in the historic landmark, King Manor. There
was no job description, either verbal or written, for the
position. As Fox recalls, the Park’s Commissioner told him:
“The job’s yours and take good care of the place.” That was
31 years ago, and Fox has been there ever since, becoming an
integral part of the King Manor Museum. 
	Fox recalls his first night in King Manor, with Mary. There was
a persistent knocking sound on the sloped ceiling above their
bed, in the master bedroom. According to Fox, Mary asked if Fox
knew the source of the knocking. Without missing a beat, Fox
said, “That’s Rufus King and he wants his house back without
us in it.” Fox keeps the spirit of Rufus King alive for
visitors, delighting them with tales of King and passionate
re-enactments of King’s anti-slavery speeches. In addition to
living rent-free as the caretaker of King Manor, all of Fox’s
utilities except for his phone are paid for. Outside of the
grounds are several local stores within walking distance where
Fox can buy what he needs as far as food and other provisions.
	The previous caretakers of King Manor were a couple who lived in
the cottage adjacent to the main home. When the home was
restored, the cottage was made part of the museum. As caretaker,
Fox lives in a large apartment located on the top floor of the
three-story museum. The space, formerly the servants’ quarters
during the years when Rufus King and his family occupied the
home, was renovated for the property caretaker. Fox’s apartment
has a spacious kitchen and dining area, two bedrooms, a bathroom,
an office, and several smaller rooms. A massive potted tree,
floor to ceiling in height, nearly fills one of the smaller
rooms. Fox explains that he covers it in lights for the Christmas
season. In addition, behind a door, in a small hallway, one can
still see the original home’s window and exterior facade. A
large room functions as a storage area for some of the museum's
historic artifacts that are not currently on display. 
	Fox’s dedication to preserving and nurturing the legacy of
Rufus King has made him a knowledgeable and passionate caretaker
of the historic home. In addition, his nearly thirty-year
successful radio career has helped to make him a unique caretaker
who always has a wonderful story to share with King Manor
visitors, young and old. His nomadic life as a radio host took
Fox from a small radio station in Henderson, Kentucky to Indiana,
Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, New York,
Massachusetts, New Jersey and then to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
where Fox hosted “The Fox’s Den”, a successful,
long-running show on KDKA. Fox recalls that he was on air when he
first “met” his wife, Mary, a successful radio producer. As a
nod to their radio careers and their many fans, the two were
married on the air. With his emotive voice and steady stream of
anecdotes, Fox still sounds as if he would be as successful on
air today as he was thirty years ago.

King Manor Museum

Roy Fox in the dining room of King Manor

	Fox is a voracious reader, and the walls of his caretaker
apartment are lined with bookshelves. The shelves, which fill
each room and every hallway of the apartment, hold Fox’s
collection of 4,000 books. Fox proudly announces that his 4,000
book collection bests Rufus King’s 3,200 book collection. Fox
has no television and is a true bibliophile and historian. Many
of his books are American and British histories. According to
Fox, he knows where each book in his massive collection is
located, and he can find a volume without consulting an index.
Fox loves histories and biographies and takes time to “talk”
to his books as he reads, circling passages and writing responses
to particularly interesting paragraphs. Fox says he is never
bored when there is any downtime at King Manor. A black and white
rescue, Super Cat, is the resident cat and Fox’s constant
companion. Super Cat knows her way around King Manor and will
make her way down to the first floor on occasion, surprising and
greeting guests.
	Fox delights in showing arriving visitors to King Manor a metal
exterior fence that surrounds the manor grounds and property and
was installed during restoration. Written in steel and spanning
the length of the fence is, as Fox describes it, “the greatest
preamble to a constitution ever written.” Walking the length of
the fence, Fox reads the inscription: “WE, the PEOPLE of the
UNITED STATES, in order to form a more perfect union, establish
justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common
defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of
liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish
this Constitution for the United States of America.”
	During a tour of King Manor, Fox shows off the formal dining
room, built by Rufus King in 1810. The room features several
original Federalist era design elements, including a curved wall
at one end of the room, elegant crown molding, and an imposing
carved fireplace mantel. Fox assists in hosting the live music
concerts that are held at King Manor Museum. Depending upon the
time of year and the weather, the concerts are either held on the
porch of the home or inside, in the formal dining room in front
of the curved wall which serves as a stage setting. During Rufus
King’s years there, the home was the site of many concerts,
and, to this day, the acoustics are excellent. According to Fox,
classical, jazz, and historic music ensembles have all performed
at King Manor. The historic home is also host to festivals,
workshops, family programs, and community events. Fox, of course,
is on hand to assist, sharing interesting anecdotes.
	Preparing for and helping to host the naturalization ceremony
for new United States citizens that is held each September on the
grounds of King Manor is another duty that Fox speaks of with
great pride. As he describes it, after the ceremony, Fox welcomes
all new citizens into the King Manor formal dining room. There,
the new citizens are invited to sign their names on a large
replica of the United States Constitution under the names of the
original founding fathers and signers of the Constitution,
including Rufus King, George Washington, and Alexander Hamilton.
Fox recalls that it is a tremendously moving ceremony and a very
proud moment for the new citizens.
In the manor’s library, a life-size statue of Rufus King is
seated at King’s original desk. The desk, which dates to 1796,
predates 44 states and was restored in 2019, in time for the
museum’s 120th anniversary in 2020. In addition to King’s
original desk, there are also four floor-to-ceiling bookcases
designed by King and built into the surrounding walls of the
library. The bookcases, which originally contained over 5,000
inches of shelf space, were custom-made to hold King’s
extensive collection of books. Each bookcase has two floor-level
drawers where King could store maps and other important papers.
The bookcases have glass front doors with curtains to protect
King’s book collection from sunlight and dust. King also added
locks so he could secure his books at night. 
	As many property caretakers know firsthand, historic homes
dating to the 1700’s and 1800’s require near constant
maintenance and upkeep. For larger tasks, Fox will speak with
Kelsey Brow, the Executive Director of King Manor. According to
Fox, Kelsey shares his passion for King Manor and nurturing and
keeping alive the legacy of Rufus King. Fox explains that Kelsey
has been able to secure funding for larger maintenance,
restoration, and repair projects for the museum. In the case of
smaller items, Fox contacts vendors and learns from repair people
what needs to be done and how to do it. The next time issues
arise, Fox is able to apply what he learned and do many of the
tasks himself.
	Fox has spent over three decades enhancing Rufus King’s legacy
through guided tours of the 29-room 22,000 square foot mansion.
Fox is actively involved in educational and community programs as
well as dramatic readings of King’s work. A passion for
history, a love of people, a dedication to lifelong learning, and
a commitment to keeping alive Rufus King’s legacy, all combine
to make Roy Fox an excellent caretaker and steward of the King
Manor Museum.

AN ALTERNATIVE TO COSTLY MEDICAL INSURANCE
 	Over the decades many of our advertisers and subscribers, both
property owners and caretakers/housesitters, have discussed their
healthcare situation and possible insurance options/alternatives
with us. My wife and I dropped our current medical insurance when
the premiums jumped to $2,000 per month with a $12,000 annual
deductible. We switched to a $354 per month healthcare program
for called Medi-Share.
I wanted to send you some information about Medi-Share as I
thought you might be interested in their affordable healthcare.
Like us, you and your family could join their community of
400,000+ who share in each other's medical burdens. Since 1993
more than $4 Billion in medical expenses have been shared and
discounted by Medi-Share members.

Arizona Cowboy has written true stories in four exciting and
interesting books all about half a century on horseback. 2005,
was the year the books closed on the Arizona, cattle and horse
ranch named the DK Ranch. After nearly fifty years there as a
cowhand, I had advanced as their chief honcho. In 2005, the
handwriting on the wall began and the books closed on this
historic steer and horse ranch. I sadly, then, became my
pen-name, The Last DK Cowboy. Read stories of true happenings
during our daily work. Happily chasing steers over the open range
while aboard bronco horses we were trying to make into usable
cowponies. Join me by enjoying these true tales and later in the
other books describing a rewarding, exciting life among wild
cattle and wilder cowhands. Ridin’ out in Arizona’s
beautiful, natural scenic wonders. These true tales, although
unusual, are just as I recollect them. To all those who have ever
dreamed of being a cowboy, here’s your chance to ride along
with me as your sidekick and saddle pard. You can view an
entertaining intro with many colored pictures at lastdkcowboy.com
or write lastdkslashcowboy@gmail.com
