Quiet, unassuming 65-year-old retired Navy veteran & English teacher needs a safe, comfortable (but cheap) studio apartment (or flat, if you're European) on Salt Lake City's east side, preferably near downtown and/or the VA Medical Center, commencing October 1st. I do not smoke, drink, party or discharge firearms within the city limits (I am, however, immensely entertaining). Mostly, I consider myself an introspective homebody; peace & quiet are essential. Bus/train must be easily accessible, as walking with "bad" knees isn't much fun. Laundry facilities (washer/dryer) must be on-site. I shall be accompanied by my therapy cat, my laptop & not much else (furnishings are very few). Okay - last requirement: I prefer a short-term lease (6-9 months), as I shall be relocating overseas next spring/summer.
