Many of the Seniors in our park live alone and rent reooms out to other single people. Lately people have been complaining about missing items from their homes, garages etc., even the office was burgeled. They were able to find out that two people, man and woman each rented a room in tw2 different homes then went to work as a team robbing people they new weren't home. It went on for sometime until one got caught and somehow they found out there were two working together.

Now a person can still rent a room but the renter is put through their paces and must go to the police station for a thorough check.

I personally welcome the added safety for the rest of us. We also have a new manager who is an ex FBI supervisor and boy is he a stickler for safety. At a meeting last week I was elected Captain for our block as Neighborhood Watch... So far it is easy and fun.

Good for you Chatty. I've got some bad guys around here, I wish
somebody would catch. The problem is, they're so good at lying,
few people can detect their true core.

I think those neighborhood watch groups are absolutely great.
Bet you'll make a wonderful Block Captain!

So far so good, I get in the car about 2:00 a.m., a different time every night so no one knows when I might be wondering about. I have Metro on speed dial and if I see anything weird I call them immediately. I told everyone on my block to put in and keep turned on after dark a gold bulb, front and back doors. Also to trim any tall bushes that block vision to their porchs or windows. So far everyone is cooperation and seem happy someone is watching out for them. There is a block captain for ever block which makes it nice...

Every home should always have a light on front and back to deter problems. Good one, Chatty.

Chatty,
This is so wonderful that you're willing to watch out for
others. You be careful and stay safe.

Actually I have a den and a bedroom each could be rented out reasonably plus all the emenities of the resort go along with the rented room. We'll see in October once he is gone...

Why not. It could turn into the next Golden Girl series.

Chatty, I love the idea of everyone cooperating for safety. Your ideas-lights on and trimming the bushes are great. We all ahould be pro-safety. When people unite for the right reasons, good things happen.

Happy and safe patrolling, Chatty!!

Chatty, can I ride shotgun with you! Reminds me of the days I patrolled air bases during training exercises! I love covert ops!

Wouldn't it be cool if all of us lived near each other? What
a ball we'd have. We could watch each other's back, for sure!

Shared Housing Registry - A group of women in my town are starting a registry of single women home owners who are willing to share accommodations with other single women.

For example, a one bedroom or bachelor apartment could cost $675.00. They are quite small. If a woman gets her own room in a larger home, she can use the whole house, plus enjoy a yard or garden.

The group is just getting started so it will be interesting to see how it goes.

I'm a professional divorced woman. I spend time in Florida in the winter. I visit my son in Europe. House sharing might be a good option for me. I guess it depends on the home and the house mates. Never thought I'd be a Golden Girl...lol.

Kathy
read your post from earlier this month.
Housing needs...in research for genealogy there are many single people in censcus returns who lived as "Boarder" within family homes.Tracing the person back to birth location it can seen that often in Scotland women left the small farming community to work in the city.Men as officers in the emerging police force.
Not being able to afford a whole house they often took one or even two rooms with a family.Teachers often lived like this near a school as their work place.Very often a widow rented rooms to boarders...
One of my ancestors when widowed moved to the city to do this in order to keep her family after a young father fell to his death.The new start in the city meant she stayed in a good area and the teacher and pupil teacher were her means of living.
Like the idea of spending time with your family in Europe as well as your homeland.

so new ways of finding accomodation may not be that new...

Recently I've been hearing about what they call co-housing, or "co-ho," for short. Seems to be the same concept as the shared housing you are talking about, Kathy. I predict we will see more "Golden Girls" sharing homes in the coming years. I just makes sense.

It would be such fun I think. I have lived in an apartment with several women when I took the job in Washington, D.C. and it was so much fun. I would do it again in a heartbeat. We were all sad when we found our own apartments after awhile. I did take two of the women in when they decided they needed to be closer to the job. I never regretted it for one second.

I won't be renting a room now to anyone. Funny how soon life can take a turn and everything changes in a heartbeat.
