64, Hospitality

I am single, no dependents, don't smoke or do drugs. Have had many background checks. I had two kitties for the 13 years that I owned my house in SC. When I sold it, the new owner took them for me so I could travel.

I spent most of my life in SC. My father was a career US Marine, so we moved a lot. After 16 years of working for the post office, I resigned, sold everything and went to live on the Mexican border as a volunteer at a refugee camp. Having been a church pianist for 25 years, I was able to play for a Spanish Nazarene church in San Benito TX close by.

From there, I managed a small resort in Provincetown MA, then worked for about a dozen years in the hospitality business in the Smoky Mountains. There I discovered the Salvation Army and became the pianist in the Sevierville TN Corps at their worship center. I fell in love with the congregation and the work that is done there. I was there for three years. When I relocated to Ohio I started working with that corps in the Angel Tree program, Red Kettle Campaign, and as a driver transporting the children and shut-ins to our services and programs.

I have completed "sits" in Pittsburgh PA, Plymouth MA, Underhill VT, Blackwood NJ, Canterbury NH, Richmond VA, and Manhattan NYC taking care of big houses, animals, and property issues.

I am staying in City Island Bronx NY right now. For the last year after apt sitting in Manhattan, I have been playing the piano and volunteering at the Salvation Army in Long Island.

I have many references from homeowners, and professional/personal as well,
