All of you here at the portal probably know by now that our fearless leader “Ralphie” has faced many challenges while living on the streets for the better part of the last eight years. If you do not know, please read his literary offerings in “Streetlife” featured in the menu at the top of the homepage here.
My husband and I, our friends and our family are currently delighting in his company until March 11, 2013, (as long as we legally can do so on a visitors visa) We are richly blessed by his warmth, his kindness, his brilliant wit, his spirituality, his earnestness, his wisdom, his personal grace and his optimism. We are concerned however that he must leave in March and as far as we know, he must return to the streets. This causes us great concern of course for to know Ralphie is to love him, he’s the real deal folks. So I am making a plea that if anyone (in Spain, he will arrive at Barcelona airport 3/11/13) or ANYWHERE ELSE that he can access transportation to, he is open minded you know…knows of available employment, (he’s brilliant and adaptable to nearly any situation) or can offer temporary housing, or has a need for a caring, honest, trustworthy, kind, sober and sane house-sitter, animal companion, (he’s wildly popular with our rescue animals and personal pets) or property management or any other position that includes temporary lodging and some type of modest wage for his simple living expenses please speak up! Ralphie speaks six languages too and he has loads of clerical work experience! If you can help our Ralphie PLEASE notify him here asap.
I am also pleased to tell you that since Ralphie arrived on December 13th, he has gained 11 pounds! He’s looking wonderful!!
Just remember that anyone can suffer losses and tragedies and miscalculations that could land us on the street just like our dear Ralphie. Please get the word out to people that you know and perhaps if we all lift him up with love and care and prayer, he can get back on his feet soon.
