The Old Man: The Old Man main role is as driver and caretaker of Luna, but he also serves the role of map-reader/navigator since in this band of gypsies he seems to be the only one to know right from left. When not driving, the Old Man, plays financier, dad joke teller and voice of reason when things get weird.
The Hussy: While maybe not the most flattering nickname it was one given to me by a dear friend and well it just stuck in my online/writing life. As the only one with real gypsy blood, I take responsibility for this crazy idea of Riskypsy and by responsibility I mean documenting through photos and my writings. My main role is a food provider for the group as well as the one who decides where we will head next.
Jayne: A rescue from the Northeast Animal Shelter and originally from Alabama at the shelter she was named Pete (did I say she was from Alabama?) since she was a girl with a boy name when we met her, we named her after a boy with a girl’s name (watch Firefly then you get it). While she is a bit neurotic with a few *cough* abandonment issues, she is the best companion a pair of gypsies could want.
Simon: Another rescue from the Northeast Animal Shelter and just like his sister originally from Alabama. Simon comes with own set of quirks, but the love for his sister is strong and true. Simon's body heat keeps us warm on cold nights and I am sure at some point he will love us as much as he loves Jayne.
