Well as I often do I found myself in Palm Springs and loving it. My good friends Frank and Elaine McClain have a spectacular home here in Palm Springs and it is one of the nicest I have been in. The place is just perfect! I have helped Frank just a little I am sure over the years, as he is without question one of the best Rolls Royce and Bentley mechanics on the planet…third generations working on these custom built rolling money pits! But I love ‘em, the cars.
The primary reason for my trip was to meet with Ros Soudry, Esquire, and her family for dinner at a local eatery. …
….I chose instead a “new” place. La Dolce Vita Resort and Spa…this place is interesting. Like many places here it is clothing optional…and like many of these places here in the desert, lots of older people. For me I will always have a pair of shorts on, did as a youngster and in all fairness to the environment will until I am tucked away for a dirt nap. Folks, there is nothing more scary than old men attempting to get comfortable on a chaise and you happen to walk by, the view could turn you to salt! What is with old people who want to run around naked….I know what you are thinking, “why do you come to these places?” Well, they are small and run well, clean and easy for me to park and walk to my room. Nudity was meant for the younger people that is why in Rome all the old F&%ks wore togas, I am sure. …So here I will sit, in a walking and breathing gathering of what looks like candidates for a “pre-need convention” ….it is the season!
The Motel is nice, my bed was so F’n hard that if I had gone into a state of cardiac arrest the fire paramedics or whoever could have done compressions right there without moving me to the floor. The room is classic old Palm Springs… …Now I know lots of older people like a hard mattress, seems nothing else is getting hard so the mattress is good.. …From 5:30 to 6:30 Ken and Tim have what is called “social hour” and the hard liquor pours and is all top shelf and free for one hour…try and get that at a Hilton or a Marriott, NOT! …. …Spa treatments we received at the Rosarita Hotel and Spa…nothing will ever compare to those services and price. … would I return, most likely yes!
La Dolce Vita and for those of you in the Funeral Business, what could be bad about having a convention in Palm Springs? Bring lots of business cards.
PS: Some places now say they are “Pet Friendly,” well here too, except your furry friend has to be 20 pounds or under!??!???!?. Well, Charlie weighs in at 85 pounds and is let’s just say not a “sissy” dog. So what gives? Charlie is more well behaved than most miniature mutts that I have been around…and we have a few of those little furry ones and if someone does not mention the words “Doberman Pinscher,” he too thinks himself as “little.” However, he was trained well as a pup and in the end he is “my dog!” So let’s put a stop to this “canine profiling”…I cannot help but wonder when some creative individual will at some point file a lawsuit as to why “Dick and Pete” can have there and John cannot have Charlie, his 85 lb ambassador. Tip, we will be having Charlie certified as a “Service Dog” and thus his admission to be with John more often when he travels.
There is so much more humor to this article on Desperate Exes.com be sure to pay a visit and read the rest of this article. While there read the other articles another new one on Desperate Exes.com is “Comments Policy on Judges” another great read.
