Answer: Carlo Ponti

We all have our fantasies, right? Some of us have fantasies involving Italian women, right? Hmmmm …

Anyway, we all have our fantasies. If you are a reader of this blog, which at least some of you are, then you must share some of the same fantasies I have. I just know it. I, for one, am scared to think of Ken’s, but that is another story.

I have this dream that a wonderful woman contacts me. She tells me of this wonderful place, a place to rest, a place to get back in touch with one’s self, wonderful food, simple company, beautiful surroundings. A place to finally find a bit of peace, albeit for a short amount of time.

Then yet another woman comes to me and says “Single Dad, I have just the place for you … go, unwind, for once think of yourself.”

Usually that is where I wake up.

Not this time …

Elizabeth was a recipient of Caregifted respite grant (see some of her posts here). She encouraged me to apply … which I did. And a few days ago I heard fromĀ Heather McHugh, Founder and Executive Director of Caregifted.

I’M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!

Well, no, but somewhere. Somewhere quiet. Somewhere via the wonderful people at Caregifted.

I will share as I learn more …


As for the previous post, about Pearlsky and the new adult program, I just heard from the lawyers. “This makes no sense. Something strange is happening there. I will talk with them more and if it is not resolved this way, we will try something else.”


Johnny Carson was once asked …

If you had to be in a hospital bed for a month, who would you want in the bed next to you?

Carlo Ponti

Why Carlo Ponti?

So I could see his wife, Sophia Loren, walk in every day.

Wasn’t Sophia one of the Three Faiths?

    I wanted to comment on your last post, but didn’t know what to say. I know what to say about this post, I am so happy you are getting this opportunity, also, I dream about having my own home, and throwing one of those amazing, color coordinated, looks like a freaking magazine cover parties.

  2. Why, thank you for the shout-out. It was actually great fun for me to scroll through those posts about caregifted, too. I wrote every day about my actual trip to Canada, too, and the one that comes to mind is this: http://elizabethaquino.blogspot.com/2013/06/what-respite-looks-like.html

    It shows what respite looks like, and while it’s not Sophia Loren, it’s pretty astoundingly different than I ordinarily feel.

    Bravo to you, Single Dad! You totally deserve it!

    Mine used to be scary maybe, now they are mostly pathetic. Primarily involving fantasizing about the days that I used to have fantasies.

    YAY!!!! Hope hope hoping that you get the care and respite you need. Hugs to you, the strongest man I know.

    A break, you deserve it. You totally, fully, completely, unconditionally, utterly, wholeheartedly, thoroughly, fully, absolutely, entirely deserve it.

    Thanks for sharing your fantasies.
    I suppose I’ve got a few…well loads really.
    I fantasise about going on holiday; about having enough money coming in so that I can take care of all the people who I love; about women who can’t get enough of me and see me as some kind of super hero…
    And that’s when I know I’m really tripping!
