I am a retired English second language teacher. I enjoy my retirement on an acreage where I raise cattle. My home is only a short drive into a very attractive community which has many modern amenities. I have a modern, comfortable three bedroom home. I have hosting experience and recently completed a criminal record check. One guest that I previously hosted came speaking no English and left being able to carry out basic conversations.
