    Because I have to go to teach every morning, Monday to Friday, I fill very sorry to live my husband Larry alone and I would like to find someone that can stay wit him, playing or attending to the garden and to the animals or talking or walking . He love also to bike and we have two and more bikes.
    I go to school at 7 am and I am back at 3,30 pm. During this time you will have time for your self and to find 4 or 5 ours to stay with Larry , playing or going in bike or farming whit him . You can have breakfast and lunch together and will be possible to wait for me coming home or come to the school with the bikes or with my car. The school is in the city of Palermo at 15 kilometres .
