    Im 52 and my 23 year old son rents the basement from me. We are quiet but at the same time are social. We do need a little personal space as I'm sure you do as well. Im retired from the Army and have worked in the medical and educational fields as well. I know a hint of German language. We live in a nice safe neighborhood in a 3 bedroom home in Mapleton IL

    I would love to share recipes. Both my adult son and I are amazing cooks. I can teach you to sew a lap quilt in a week. We can paint barn quilts and i have several craft supplies. I also have several scrap wood projects that you can build on your own. I love to play board games and my 23 year old don loves video games.
