Linda Burton is a Beaufort County literacy teacher, mom to three great college kids, and lover of all animals. As a kid, she lived on a farm and had a favorite chicken named Henrietta. With her dogs, Daisy and Harley, she isn’t an ‘empty nester’ because they are the children who will never leave home. As much as she has tried, she has given up on the ‘no dogs on the couch’ rule. She just keeps the vacuum cleaner nearby.
