「【国外-59】米国アラバマ州バーミングハムでのホームステイ(英語のみ)」

I would be very happy to extend a invitation to the families in need.

I do have a nice 6 bedroom 2 acre home I wouldn’t mind sharing.  The walk in level has its own kitchen and private bath and 2 bedrooms with a living room.  I also have a pool (35,000gal) and lots and lots of BBQ.

I have my sweet wife of 20 years who works for Royal Caribbean remotely telecommuting which is nice as she gets to stay home for her work.  She has been with RCCL for 15 years and is a senior level I.T. something… I’m never quite sure what her title is.  She is 45 years old and very funny.  Her name is Lisa.

I have 2 sons 17 and 15 who go to High School and in general are normal teenagers and are pretty good boys.  They are Chris and Bobby.

I am a network administrator in charge of everything plugged into the wall for 21 movie theatres along with the corporate office.  I am 43 years old and my wife laughs at my jokes so I guess I’m very funny too.

We have 1 dog named Ringo he is a Carolina Dog.  He is a good dog and good with small children.  I hope they don’t mind the occasional lick to say hi! J

He weighs about 40 pounds and is about ½ the size of a Labrador.  I suggest the small kids not play tug of war with him as he gives me a work out but he won’t jump on anyone to get attention as he likes his 4 feet on the ground.  He is pretty placid and waits patiently for my wife to finish work all day.  He is about 3 years old now.

As guests in our house we wouldn’t expect nor need anything.   The guests can buy and cook her own food of course anytime or share meals with us its completely up to her.  We are pretty easy going.  My wife is a excellent cook with her Italian upbringing but sometimes it’s just fried chicken and some sides from the local store which isn’t bad.

Our neighborhood is one of the more upscale neighborhoods in the surrounding area with house values of 275-600K.  Shopping is done at the local stores.  We have malls and shops within a 2 to 15 minute drive with traffic depending on where your going.  We have 1 golf course in the neighborhood and a driving range.  What it costs… I’m not sure.  Parks are scattered around outside the neighborhood and with the exception of the state park they are free of course.  Jogging tracks and nature walks and so on.

For entertainment since I work for a movie theatre company we get in for free at the local theatre about 20-30 minutes away.   Also the BBQ locally is just awesome.  It brings tears to the eyes of true BBQ lovers.

We have 2 internet connections.  1  35MB Cable model with wireless and the other is a DSL 6MB connection that is also wireless.  Both can be connected of course via network cables.  If they need a PC I can arrange one or 2 easily.

Best,
Eric

追伸:Please include lots of swimming in the pool and while Alabama isn’t exactly 100% sun and fun as it is nice and quiet and peaceful.   If they are lucky they could learn some English with a slight southern drawl (accent) which would be very funny back home I’m sure.  We have a basketball net and my youngest would just love to have someone to play basketball with.  I forgot to include on the 2nd level (or 3rd depending on how you look at it) a another bedroom that shares that private bath room so the child can sleep in the other room or not it’s up to them.  It also has a day bed.
