Goodbye for a week dear Friends

I will post this just before I leave for Ronda Hospital, Andalucia, Spain for a week of tests to see if they can find out what is wrong with me. I am being admitted at 18:00 Spanish time tonight. My laptop will be taking a rest as well as I am not taking it with me. I will leave these instructions for you to obey unconditionally *wink*

1) No hanky-panky in my comments area.Bouquet of pink roses *another wink*

2) No graffiti. *another other wink*

3) Please take your litter home with you.

4) Do not feed my cats, but you may stroke them.

5) Press LIKE on any post. (that includes you, Marsha)

6) You may comment on any post and I will answer each and every one of you on my return.

Have a great and happy week dear friends, and thank you for your visits and comments as I love the banter and exchanges.

Hugs and Love. Ralph xx

A little goodbye present for you

  1. I’ll remember to clean up after me. Hope you’ve left plenty of cola in the fridge.

    Have a good time


    • Thanks Alastair. You made a good job of tidying up. I came home to a really clean comment area. Sorry, fridge was turned off. Ralph


  2. An entire week in the hospital. Oh, how I’ve dreamed of doing that. Whenever I’ve had a major mishap, they release me the very same day. And then when I go home, I have to wait on myself.


    • Teresa, you are very welcome to take my place if, God forbid, there is a next time. The hospital hotel was great except they take things from you like blood and bone marrow. I don’t recommend it. Love Ralph x


      • I have actually been thinking about you this week, hoping all was well–missed your wry humor that brightens my day.


  3. Nothing’s wrong Ralph, Just a little nippy weather. You’ll be here soon and I make sure no one leaves any litter here or I will kick-ass em ๐Ÿ™‚


    • You surely KA’d them, Mani, not one scrap of paper like a โ‚ฌ50 note anywhere !! Ralph


  4. Ralph, all the best, we all will miss you here in blogland! Surely we will all behave! ๐Ÿ™‚ Big hug! Ute xx


    • Hi Ute, thanks for missing me. Behave !! ….huh!!… there again I believe you…must be the tablets I’m on. Hugs Ralph x


  5. Best to you Ralph and we will look forward to your return. Sending positive energy your way. ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Hi LuAnn. It’s great to be back. My cats were fed by a friend but were alone for 8 days and I found them hiding under the bed. My voice and a stroke they were back to normal in minutes. Nice to be home. I’ll wave to you as you drive by me in Spain. Hugs. Ralph x


  6. LOL… you’d better survive! What would we do without you? One week will be difficult enough! Praying all goes well. ((hugs))


    • Hi Rene. Thanks for your prayer and I did return in one piece even though my Spanish is limited. I think the doctor who gave me an ultra-scan said I am having twins !! Love Ralph x


  7. Hasta pronto Ralph!
    Will be thinking good thoughts for you. And will add you to my night-time prayers.
    YES – YOU will SURVIVE ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • Hi Marianne. They found nothing wrong with me….said I was depressed…huh!!….I am English in a foreign hospital, just frustrated, wanted to go home. Take care. Ralph x


      • Good to hear youยดre OK, Ralph. I think weยดve all been a bit depressed with all the grey cloudy skies and rain weยดve been having.

        Take care ๐Ÿ™‚


      • Yes, I agree. You’re East and I’m West, Marianne, and there are some severe monsoon like thunderstorms been coming by for a while now ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


    • Hello Yessie, what’s with this goof ? Yes, okay, I admit it. I am. But not medically proven, as yet !! Hugs Ralph x


  8. Hey guys, the farmer is out. Time to party in the fields! ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • There is ALWAYS one !! Hi Katie. Party time. I’m back !! Love Ralph x


      • My End of the World Party is still going, the trouble is I don’t know where it is ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • Hi Renxkyoko. Thank you. Lets say I went in and came out feeling worse than when I went in, but knowing I am okay. Hugs Ralph x


  9. I’m sure the nurses will appreciate your visit. We appreciate you and hope they send you back here soon!

    Blessings ~ Wendy


    • Hi Wendy. I wish that was true, as I saw tears of happiness roll down their cheeks as I left ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s nice to be back, hugs Ralph x


  10. Praying for good, attentive physicians–results–and relief.


    • Thank you also for your prayers Alice. Yes they were. Hugs. Ralph x


    • Hi YellowCable. It did, I think !! Thanks for your comment. Ralph x ๐Ÿ™‚


    • That’s sweet of you Daniela. I’m back…..oh heck, she says!! Missed you. Ralph x


      • So glad you are back -:)! Please let me know how did it all go and how are you now!
        Take Care,


      • I shall be writing a few posts about it in the next couple of days Daniela. I am also pleased to be back amongst my blogging friends again. Thank you for caring. Ralph x


  11. not goodbye!! an entire week without your wit, now what will we do to amuse ourselves? Ah, we can go back over your blog, chuckling as we do a double-take!
    Rest assured we will clean up after the party, just not until the night before your return ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • Hey Roxie, I really missed you, your fun and kind words. Who warned you that I was coming home? The place is spotless, cleaner than when I left it. Hugs Ralph x


      • Hey Ralph!!!
        Yes, missed you too, ooops, spotless and empty, we partied and took everything…swept it clean, LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰


      • You were so good that I wouldn’t have noticed except you left the Windows open ๐Ÿ˜‰


  12. Behave? Ha!
    And since you said you would respond to every comment when you get back….it’s just so tempting to go through and respond on every post. Even if I have in the past.
    But if I must behave. Hufffffffffff
    ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re in my thoughts young man.


    • Lori, Lori, Lori !!! What am I going to do with you ? And no huffing here please as this is a huff free zone. Love and hugs Ralph x


  13. Good Luck dear Ralph, and my best wishes for you. We will be missing you as always. You are in my thoughts too! Love, nia


    • Thank you for your kind wishes Nia, and I missed you too. Love Ralph x


  14. Good luck with your tests. We’ll look for good news when you get back. Thanks for keeping the candles lit beside the comment box. How inviting is that? Who could NOT like that??? LOL


    • Hi Marsha. Thank you for your comment and…..faint…..LIKE !! It is good news I am fit as a fiddle, the tests say, though my hands still shake, my balance is wonky. They could find nothing wrong with me….so a Spanish doctor with little English has diagnosed that I am depressed and has prescribed happy pills, Valley of the Dolls which I will not take. I just love Spain !! The candles were for you. Hugs. Ralph x


    • Hi Kate. Missed you and your fun blog !! You can uncross your fingers now…..hope you haven’t got cramp in them. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love Ralph x


  15. Hi guys/gals. my neighbour in the ward, son, lent me his laptop for 2 minutes. i am okay. I will be doing more tests. Possibly out next wednesday. Hugs. Ralph x


  16. Ralph here. I am like a Swiss cheese with holes in me everywhere. Thank you for your lovely comments, as I am alone in hospital I really my appreciated them. Brought tears to my eyes. I donยดt know if and when I will be out. Love & hugs. Ralph x


    • Hang in there. Here’s hoping you at least have a cute nurse/doctor!
      Good to hear from you. 8)


      • Hi Katie. They were all cute except they carry weapons like needles. Thanks for your response Katie. Love as before. Ralph x


    • Ralph! Was just thinking of you and was surprised to see you here! I’m so sorry you’re feeling so alone in the hospital. If I lived closer, I’d visit you. If I had the money, I’d hop on a plane. Miss you. Please don’t say “if”– praying for wisdom for the doctors and medical staff, and comfort, strength, and healing for you. ((hugs))


      • You are really sweet Rene, such a lovely comment which I did read in hospital as the son of the man in the next bed lent me his laptop for a couple of minutes. I really appreciated yours and all the other comments. It made such a difference to my being away from you. Hugs Ralph x


    • Hey Ralph, I’ve nominated you for 5 blog awards, surprise, surprise! Welcome back pal. Hope it wasn’t everything you dreamed it would be ๐Ÿ˜‰


      • Hey Charlie. Thanks for your welcome. It wasn’t quite a dream, more of a hallucinogenic trip. Maybe I was on one ??!!?? Ralph


      • Thanks YellowCable again for your kind words which I also read in hospital. Hugs Ralph x


    • Hi b&wc, missed you ! I’m aching all over but glad to be home. Thanks for your concern. I really appreciate it. Hugs Ralph x


  17. I just came across one of your comments, so thought I’d pop across to see you. Hope the hospital tests went well, and you’re soon back on top form. ๐Ÿ™‚


  18. fab post…I would like to ask you that what made compelled you to title your blog. “blue fish way”….:)
    take care

    Harshit Chauhan


    • Hi Harshit, thank you for your comment. A year or so ago I needed a username for a forum, and couldn’t come up with anything sensible, just silly things like “muddy boots” and then my wind chime tinkled and on it is a large lace like blue fish. So I started off as Bluefish, but WordPress domain wouldn’t let me use it as it already is taken as a dot-com, so I added the WAY….Bluefish Way was born. Ralph


      • ๐Ÿ™‚
        great, u told me the history of your blog..
        glad to follow ๐Ÿ™‚
        that name was fab and the same compelled me to ask.


      • Hi Harshit, Thanks for your great comment. I am afraid you were in my WordPress Dashboard Spam again ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


    • Vielen Dank Wolfgang. Ich wรผnsche Ihnen auch ein tolles Wochenende. Achten Sie darauf. Ralph


    • I’m back Seyi, but thank you for your concern. I really do appreciate your lovely words. Hugs Ralph x


  19. Feel Better and I look forward to more of your posts. I’ll stroke the cat I love our furry friends!


    • If you love cats then you are definitely a friend of mine Tovah ๐Ÿ˜€ Hugs Ralph x


    • I had an amazing experience the other day. Another blogger came with a message which I slept on. When I awoke my hands were still, not shaking, not totally, but usable. Since then I am returning to normal. So I thank the Universes and Others who healed me. I am getting hot writing this. Ralph x
