Delores and her husband, Richard, live just across the Hays County line. They manage their 50-acre estate for the benefit of indigenous wildlife, including white-tailed deer, red fox, small mammals and an abundance of song birds. Delores and Richard enjoy sitting outdoors in the evening watching the hummingbirds gather around the feeder, listening to the mourning doves cooing and waiting to the resident owl to begin his nightly query. Delores says the peace and quiet of close in country living serves as a welcome balance to the her always active, sometimes trying Premiere days.
