I am a retiring adult critical care Registered Nurse. Kids all moved/moving out. Have a nice 2100+ sq ft home, 3 BR, 2.5 bath, 2 living areas & have used this service myself w/ good results. I am a child of the 60's & rather laid back. Common courtesy, common sense, honesty are my rules & greatest expectations. I have traveled enough to not judge others. I try very hard to be independent of the good opinion of others yet in a kind & compassionate manner. I like animals actually better than most people but, currently, I only have an outside cat. I have extensive knowledge of the area, flora, fauna & have lots of local guide books. Can't live w/out the natural world close at hand, music, travel, art, my grandkids (who live in their house w/ my son & his beautiful wife & a great Aussie named Isaac!). My greatest travel adventure has been to Northern India & Nepal, (not for the recent disaster) where I helped set up an ICU in Kathmandu, taught, learned, hiked, had the best time ever & was not injured by the dreaded TATA trucks! Still own a 2 room flat in Moscow, Russia. My son schooled in Russia & is fluent. Favorite museum: The Hermitage; Food: Cheeses. When I travel, I hang w/ the kids in the hostels & generally eat & travel w/ the locals; I do not go to stay in a western hotel room. I am better inoculated than most pets.Things I collect on my travels include books of folk tales, music, folk art, memories & experiences--& maybe a pair of cool earrings. How can anyone have one favorite book; what comes to mind is The Devil Drives a bio of Capt Sir Richard Burton, Skywater about coyotes in the southwest US, Yukon Alone about the Yukon Quest dog sled race, Undaunted Courage about Lewis & Clark & the Corp of Discovery. In Tacoma, you will be approx. 145 miles from the Columbia River Gorge & Astoria, OR. If it's fiction it must be a darn good yarn to hold my interest. Music--any. I prefer songwriters who have something to say either w/ words or w/ the music itself & who understands how to surround themselves w/ excellent musicians. I have a large library including many travel/adventure accounts, local area guide books (which you may borrow) & music of all sorts. I love showing folks this beautiful country. I live on the premises & will be available to assist you in any way (except cooking) as little or as much as you want. I will respect your privacy & if you do want to cook, my kitchen is regular & modern w/ most every appliance/gadget you might need. Just don't burn the house down. I will be available to clean up for you so you do not have to waste time on that. Have a full sized laundry area. One bath has a jetted Jacuzzi tub. My house is in a semi secluded, quiet area, yet readily available to all sorts of shopping. I am at the end of a dead end. Have outdoor living areas, a mostly native 3/4 acre yard & lots of trees. Parking for rental car. If you have never visited the PNW, you are in for a wonderful treat. Tacoma has everything Seattle has except less traffic, less people; yet, we have great light rail & bus access & Seattle is about 35 miles north. My son can assist you with Seattle directions, area pubs, bars, breweries, cafes---the night life stuff. I can guide you to the natural beauties, museums & art. The US Open golf championship is being held about 4 miles from my house in June. Come have a good time, I'll keep you comfortable--so long as you feed yourself!
