“We Three Cats” – A Song For Christmas

It’s really quiet here in the kitchen.  I wonder what the cats are up to in my bedroom.

My Wonderful Six Week Holiday From Blogging. Ha !

Hi lovely bubblies.  I’m back after 6 weeks … sort of.  Okay, I know you are saying to yourself,

“Oh Nooooo !”

… but a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do … ruin your day !

Heron on a roof top 

My old laptop died so the Spanish technician told me after 5 weeks.  To stay in touch with you I used a psychotic tablet that switched off in the middle of every long comment I pecked at letter by letter.  Your posts loaded slower than snail mail.  The list goes on.  I was like a fish out of water or a heron on a roof top.

So what have I been doing for 5 weeks ?

I tidied up the cupboards.

 o3

Shush Samantha !  I organised my paperwork.

o4

For goodness sake,  SHUT UP Samantha !  Toni, my neighbour, removed the hornets nests.  I supervised of course.

Ooops !

Thanks Toni.  Really most of my days were spent cleaning up after my cats.

 My new crazy laptop

I have a new laptop.  It’s a crazy Spanish Windows 10 smartphone on steroids !  It took me days to set up the way I wanted in ENGLISH with a Spanish keyboard.  THEN … I verified that I am who I am with Microsoft and decided to go to bed early and shut down with an update.  Update … a little word, isn’t it ?.  Oh boy, was I in for IT !  One hour of hypnotising English update spinning dots …

o14

 and three hours of Spanish spinning dots ! 

By then I was watching an imaginary spinning skirt instead of dots.

o15

  Finally at 5am,  when, at last, I could see what these updates had done.  The display and Start Menu had changed and most apps are now SPANISH !  Who wants an expensive Frisbee laptop ? 🙂

BUT … I will be strong,  go forth with an English stiff upper lip,  fix the ……..

o13

Oh boy !  Some holiday ! 🙂

I just ruined your day, haven’t I ? 🙂

An Ant With A Magnifying Glass

 ~Day 1~

Do you remember in my last post when I tried to give money back to the bank,  had a leak in the kitchen and found hornets’ nests ?  Well,  it’s got a whole lot worse !

A couple of days after publishing the last post and while I was having fun answering your comments,  my laptop produced a million vertical lines,  made mechanical clunking noises,  went black and would not switch off.

w26a

w1

~Day 2 to Day 11~

After a night of “praising” my Dell laptop I sent it away to be fixed locally.  As it didn’t work, the village Spanish computer man either sent it to Dell repair in Madrid,  or to a beach lounger on the Costa,  or to a laptop dancing club.  Who knows !

What to do ?  No laptop !!!  Arghh !!!

d13gif

The cats don’t care.

I do have a Tablet … in a box !

I bought it a year ago and looked at it.  The cable sockets were so tiny that an ant with a magnifying glass couldn’t see them and none of my laptop cables would fit.  Too big !

I switched it on.  My vibrating hands tapped,  swiped,  squeezed and stretched.  Weird things happened.  Nothing did what I wanted.  Almost becoming an expensive frisbee I returned the Tablet to its box.

A year passed,  until now !

w13a

w1

No laptop means no blogging …. an unboxed Tablet is a 1% chance of blogging especially as I have to start from scratch.  Oh boy !

I spent half a day trying to sign in to Gmail.  I knew my password was right … “gspot” … The word corrector had changed my email address first letters of my name to capitals,  not all letters in lower case and I hadn’t noticed !  This Tablet WILL,  by the time this is published,  become a very expensive frisbee !

w1

Via a Google Search I found my blog.  I spent another half day trying to find where to Log In.  A stupid WP monkey hid it in the small “Follow” box at the bottom right of the page by clicking on the three dots.  I did remember my password … “Won’tPress” …

w1

So here I am,  almost at the end of drafting this post.  I really do need to be a 12yo Tablet whizzkid and have nearby a 45 (not inches)-24-36 woman on whom I can tap,  slide,  squeeze and stretch (not necessarily in that order)…. my Tablet resting on her 45 degree slope.

I digress.  The writing on blog pages are either too tiny for an ant with a magnifying glass to read or it zooms in to 3 words on a page.  My vibrating hands !!  Oh boy !

(Insert ant with magnifying image here)

Can’t do it.

On trying to upload an ant with a magnifying glass image to Add New in the Media Library,  WordPress said that I needed their special App for my device.  I followed the instructions like the good boy I am.  Pressed “Install”.  Nothing happened.  In small red writing underneath, it exclaimed with glee  >>>

! Your device does not exist

Silly me !  Of course it doesn’t exist !  It’s a very expensive frisbeeeeeee !

w1

Well,  how did I do ?

At least we can communicate,  can’t we ?  Sort of !

All images are from my WP Media Library.

My next post will be in November as this Tablet is making me crazy !!  No change there then  :)

Tales From The River Bank. That’s A Buzz !

Many of you know by now that I have big problems with my vibrating hands.

w23a

w1

~Bank~

Problems, such as extracting euros from a cashpoint in a Spanish village nearby.

w2

Twice, on different occasions, I went to grab hold of the money, instead of which I pushed the euros back into the slot.  Luckily there was enough showing for a friend to extract it.

My true bank is on the coast, 30 miles away.  It’s an international bank and all communications to me are in English.  The local village banks are totally Spanish and my Spanish is limited.  Goodness knows what they are really like >>>

w14

Secondly, because of my hands, I am unable to write >>>>

w13

So I have kept with the coastal bank for a number of years.  I had to do something after pushing the euros back into the ATM slot.  I went to the coast and withdrew a few thousand euros so that I would never have to use a local ATM again ….. well, for a few weeks !

w3

I have guard cats protecting this money 24/7 with dedication and ferocity.

w24a

w1

Happy that both Samantha and Sonic were 0% behind me I took a break from drafting this post and went out onto the rear balcony.  Wow !  The Universe reminded me in the form of a cloud to tell you about what I saw after visiting the coastal bank.

This cloud is a cropped mirror image. Click for the big picture.

I emailed a few photos to Resa, who very kindly published a feature post.  Click on Resa’s photo to see the post.  Thank you my friend and the Universe for reminding me❤

resa200

Well,  that’s it for this post.  Oh no, I spoke too soon !

w1

~River~

w25a

Oh heck !   What now Samantha ?

w27a

What do you mean your bum’s wet ?

w30a

w29a

w26a

w28a

OMG.  You’re right Samantha ! 

The work surface was covered in water.  Not knowing where it came from and being a Sunday afternoon I turned off the water to the apartment.  The plumber arrived Monday afternoon and on removing one of the overhead cabinets found a broken repair to the hot water pipe in the wall.   It seems that this repair was made during installation of the kitchen units put in a year before I moved into the apartment.

w32

Not having the right welding equipment with him he went away leaving a water bottle to channel the leak to drip into a basin.  At least I had water back on again.

w33

w34

w31

Tuesday afternoon he returned, repaired the pipe, put back the unit and emptied my wallet.  I may have to return to the coastal bank earlier than I had planned.   Oh boy !

w1

~Buzz~

Hornets are really sneaky like my cats.

w35a

Hornets fly into the apartment carrying a bucket of mud and quietly build their nests in inaccessible places.  Last year. I found a huge lump of dried mud on the back corner of a curtain.

w7

This year one built a nest here …..

w8

w9

w10

…. and another here.

w11

w12

Luckily for me, just as the hornets were about to bring in all their relations and lay eggs, the outside temperature shot up into the 40°Cs, peaking at 48° C.  This meant me closing all the windows and doors and running the air conditioning all day and evening.  Yep, the hornets were locked out and never returned once the temperature dropped.

I am unable to climb stepladders, so I will ask Toni, my neighbour, to remove the nests while I take photographs for a future post.  What a buzz !

w1

No wonder I have vibrating hands  !!!! 🙂

w23b

w36a

Oh boy !

w1

Have you tried to give money back to the bank,  or had a leak,  or enjoyed a buzz ?

Disappointment

I am disappointed.  My good for nothing cats just lie around and sleep all day.

d9

Even the sheep out the back, who the cats should be counting to go to sleep, are disappointed and have gone to sleep themselves as they are never counted and have got bored.

d14

d13gif

So I am going to change all that and bring in a strict exercise regime for my cats.  But nothing like the way my Spanish friend, Manuel, exercises his dog Yaki (Yak Key).

d16a

Right you three, you need to wake up and get some exercise.  So Daddy has worked out a daily schedule to get you fit and healthy.

d17a

Okay, I can see your point China Cat.  You are excused from exercising and you don’t have a wedgie.  You have a WEDGE jammed under the bedroom door to stop it slamming in the wind and throwing you down the hall.  These are wedgies !

d3a

d18a

d13gif

Right you TWO !  This is how it is going to work.

When I wake up in the morning  I’ll brush your fur as normal …..

d12

…. then you will do an hour of yoga ….

d10

…. followed by chasing your toys around the apartment until you drop

d19

And if there is any slacking, you will do it all again in the afternoon.  Got it ??

I’m going to make myself a coffee.  Talk amongst yourselves and when I come back I want to hear a “Yes, Daddy, we are really happy to do lots of exercises”.

Kitty Love

~300th Blog Post~

Yes, this is my 300th blog post.  Some of you have been with me from almost the very beginning.  It is like a marriage, but we have never had a domestic, have we ?

What do you mean, there are other women reading this post ?   No there’s not, there’s only you.  No, I’m NOT arguing !  Oh boy ! 😉

The other day, out of the blue, arrived this love letter for Sonic.

It’s a little difficult to read.  It says >>>

“Dear Sonic, I have had a crush on you since mommy showed me your picture.  I hope you feel the same !  With love, Jeepo”

So excited with all the attention Sonic fell asleep for 10 hours and then replied >>>

k17

Almost instantly, Jeepo replied with these four pictures of herself >>>>

k20

It said >>>

“Dear Sonic,  This is my special bed where I am collecting fur.  I’m hoping to send you a big fur ball one day”

I digress.  Eventually Black Drake replied to China Cat >>>

“Dear China Cat,
I have someone I want you to meet! (a bad boy friend of mine!)
However, first mommy has to cut mats of fur off of Johnny, & take more pictures for Samantha!
Johnny knows & is hiding. He has lots of mats.
As soon as the whole Johnny thing is over, I’ll be writing and sending you a pic of my friend.
Much love,

My Worst Photography Experience Ever !

~So what went wrong~

Camera charged.  Ralph dressed up.  Off I went to watch the tiny carnival procession in my local Spanish village.  On my return I transferred the 35 photographs into my laptop and *sigh* not one came out any sense.  Do I delete them ?  No !  You know me, I’ll have fun with them at the expense of the eyes of my readers.  I am very kind like that ! 

BTW my eyesight is bad and it wasn’t caused by looking at THESE photographs 😉

What do you think created these abysmal photographs ?  Is it >>>

1.  The tuition I have been given by the photographic Mistress Master Pelly who sometimes uses a blur technique.

2.  The photographs were taken at the point where day met night and my camera had a nervous breakdown not knowing whether to flash or not.

3.  My hands shook too much.

4.  The planetary rotation of the Earth was affected at the same instant I took each photograph by the jumping up and down and pulling out of hair by readers of my latest blog post.

The village scientists drowning themselves in wine and whiskey would come up with the ultimate solution of mosquito eradication.

You won’t believe this.  In fact I don’t believe this.  My good for nothing black cat Sonic who sleeps all day, complains bitterly when not petted or fed on time and keeps me awake as I am just dropping off to sleep at night has just received a love letter !  Yes, a love letter !  Heck, I’ve never ever received a love letter !  Do you want to read it ?  Okay, I will show it to you in my next post including what Samantha has fallen in love with.

f50c

Oh boy !

f1

Have you ever received a love letter ?

BTW if by some miracle I do receive email love letters from you.  When I have picked myself up after fainting I will publish them including your avatar and links to your blog.  I am kind like that.  I may even reply in a desperate sort of way😀

Fourth Birthday Bash

~Fourth~

b3

I have just passed the fourth year of blogging with WordPressCom.  I really must get a life !

Perhaps I will !

b1

~Birthday~

Hilda is a great local friend to me.  Remember how she and her husband, David, hosted the Summer Party ?  And some of you may remember Hilda helping out as my Interior Designer when my apartment was renovated.

b31

She also buys the cat treats when they go to Murky Donna supermarket.

b18a

And then there was the time when Manny, a teddy bear blogger from California, clambered around in her cleavage.  He loved that !

b28

b33

Anyway, she suggests ….

b2

Yes, on the 15th of December this year is my 70th birthday.

Maybe I should invite Elena from my Spanish village Tabac.

b34

…. impressing her with my Sunday best suit.  I must remember to paint my nails😀

b36

How about a cabaret ?

b35

Beth !  You’re hired !

Beth

What do you think ?  What will make a party to remember ?

b1

You are also very welcome to mail me a birthday card, the funnier the better >>>

Ralph Whillier,

137, Canada del Real Tesoro,

29391 Estacion Cortes de la Frontera,

Malaga,

Spain.

Or, come to the party !

b1

Talking of Hilda.  The other day the local village put on an Hawaiian night on the beach of the local river where I tried out Tai Chi.

b30

Even though the party was only 50 yards away from my home, I didn’t go as my ankles were swollen probably from the heat of the day and I didn’t want to take the chance of having a fall on the stones.  Still, Mary and Hilda had a great time !

Animated Cats ….. Perhaps Not !

~Warning~

This long post contains gifs (animated photos) which can take a while to load if you have a slow speed IP (Internet Provider).  Play with your toy while waiting. 😀

Welcome to Ralph’s Blogging Class of 2016 ……. Hey you, stop fiddling with your bra and pay attention !  Heck, and you leaning back with your feet on your keyboard painting your toe nails, concentrate !  And that’s just my male readers.  You ladies are even worse !

Oh boy.  Thanks cats !

a1

You will need a Photo Editor (this old prehistoric Editor was on the CD which came with my ancient digital camera) ….

a36

….. and bookmark this free website as it makes the “gifs” for you.

a7

a1

 The simplest “gif” is to take two photos from the same spot.  For your blog, reduce them in size to 450 pixels or less. Upload them to the GIFMaker.  Select the speed.  When happy with the Preview,  click Create GIF Animation, Download The GIF to “save file”.  Done.  It’s easy !

a5gif

a1

This girl “gif” is one photo plus a mirror image of the same photo.  It is really too big for blogging.

a6gif

a1

A photo of a suitcase cropped as a square. Rotate the photo 90 degrees, save.  Rotate another 90 degrees and so on until you have 4 photos.

a4gif

a1

I added text to each of the 5 cat photos, but made a mistake by cropping as rectangles, not squares, so the photos are slightly different in size.

a3a

a3

a3gif

a1

Cropping is easy.  I had taken 3 photos of Marcus playing. The background on all 3 were slightly different ……

a8

…. so I picked the same 2 points in all the photos and cropped them …..

a8a

…. ending up with 3 new, slightly smaller photos which I resized to the same size.

a8c

I uploaded the 3 photos to the GIFMaker, uploading #2 twice to make the “gif” more fluid.

a8d

a8gif

a1

And finally 2 “gifs” spliced together.  Here are the 2 original photos of Ana serving paella in my last post.  Notice the backgrounds are very different.

a10

The same as before.  I picked 2 points, cropped and resized the photos

a10a

These 2 photos I uploaded to the GIFMaker website, set the speed, clicked Create GIF Animation and Download The GIF to “save file”.

a9s

I then uploaded the same 2 photos again, but this time doubled the speed, downloaded as before to “save file”.

a9f

So now I have 2 “gifs” both of which I uploaded to GIFMaker, clicked Combine Animated GIFs and downloaded the finished “gif” to “save file”.  Easy !  Lo and behold, a fun “gif” for my post.

a10gif

a1

Can’t you give me one “gif” cats ?

Summer Party

The other day I received an invitation …..

s12a

….. to go to David & Hilda’s home here in southern Spain for a party.  Yay !

s2

It just so happened to coincide with a full moon on the Summer Solstice.  The next full moon on a Summer Solstice will be in 2062 when I will be 116 years old and probably will marry a 21 year old super-model that day unless one of you ladies out there sweep me off my feet first.  Well, you have 46 years to work on it. 😀

s16

Click for original solstice full moon photograph. Normally I would have deleted the original straight away as a finger was half over the camera lens, but I could see an unusual result. So with a bit of cropping these two pictures emerged. Great, aren’t they ?
