  1. Ralph hasn’t visited meme in a while
    He’s left her in a tizzy
    But with buying a great big villa and such
    She knows he’s been very busy

    What she wants is for him to know
    That his blog really is a treasure
    She invites him to hear her holiday songs
    And hope they give him pleasure


    • Dear Meme, so your greatest desire is for me to visit you, which I will, after I have had a cup of coffee, saved the planet, stroked my cats and had a sleep. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ralph x

      Ralph hasn’t been over to see Meme
      His tablets are making him quite dreamy
      For once in a while
      Her blog makes him smile
      But I’m waiting for my kettle to steamy.


  2. Dear Ralph. There are so many things. The only one I really want is to go fishing with my uncle that last time.


    • Dear LCP. Not knowing your situation with your uncle I cannot possibly reply to your comment, but what I CAN say is that dreams do come true. ๐Ÿ˜€


  3. While you are thinking about what to say. Here is a little joke for you.

    Two women were sitting next to each other in a bar.
    After a while, one looks at the other and says, ‘I can’t help but think, from listening to you, that you’re from Ireland …..’

    The other woman responds proudly, ‘Yes, I sure am!’

    The first one says, ‘So am I! And whereabouts in Ireland are ya from?’

    The other woman answers, ‘I’m from Dublin , I am.’

    The first one responds, ‘So, am I!! And what street did you live on in Dublin ?’

    The other woman says, ‘A lovely little area. It was in the west end. I lived on Warbury Street in the old central part of town.’

    The first one says, ‘Faith, and it’s a small world. So did I! So did I! And what school did ya go to?’

    The other woman answers, ‘Well now, I went to Holy Heart of Mary, of course..’

    The first one gets really excited and says, ‘And so did I!
    Tell me, what year did you graduate?’
    The other woman answers, ‘Well, now, let’s see. I graduated in 1964.’
    The first woman exclaims, ‘The Good Lord must be smiling down upon us! I can hardly believe our good luck at winding up in the same pub tonight! Can you believe it? I graduated from Holy Heart of Mary in 1964 meself!’

    About this time, Michael walks into the bar, sits down, and orders a beer.
    Brian, the bartender, walks over to Michael shaking his head and mutters, ‘It’s going to be a long night tonight.’

    Michael asks, ‘Why do you say that, Brian?’
    Brian answers, ‘The Murphy twins are drunk again’.


    • Dear Alastair,
      There are at least three possible responses that I can give you.
      1) Doctor Who is on the way with his Tardis to take you back 2,500 years to ancient Egypt.
      2) Take your mum to Las Vegas where she can bet as much as she wants…or…
      3) I am sending out thoughts that she will become well again. Ralph


    • I’m wishing for your mom to get better too, Alastair.


      • Not knowing your mother’s situation I may have been a little flippant with my first two remarks. Please forgive me and I wish you both well and that she gets better. Ralph


      • Sometimes being flippant is a good, albeit pathetic, way to cope with adversity. I hope Alastair is okay with that–or should I say that I hope that he understands that some of us find it easier to cope with hard times by hiding our pain behind a veil of humor? I know that’s the case for me. It’s something I learned to use as a coping mechanism from living through a dysfunctional childhood.


  4. Dear Santa, oh Ralph. I have toooooooo many wishes. I am so confused some time by them. From moment to moment, the wish keeps changing ever and ever. How do I start telling you this? Ah, I know now. I wish to sort the wishes out. ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Dear YC,
      A wish is a hope or desire for something. Fictionally, wishes can be used as plot devices. In folklore, opportunities for “making a wish” or for wishes to “come true” or “be granted” are themes that are sometimes used.
      Your blog: A Little Bit Of Wiggle Room tells me that you wiggle, in other words, you move with short movements up & down or from side to side. Your wiggling between wishes has caused your problem. Stop it !! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ralph x


  5. Imagine there’s no countries, it isn’t hard to do
    No need to kill or die for and no religions too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will live as one
    [ From: ]

    Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger a brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing for the world


    • Dear Katie
      Very apt in the way the world is even now after so many years since that song was first written. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Ralph x


      • It’s been a hard day’s night
        And I’ve been working like a dog.
        It’s been a hard day’s night,
        I should be sleeping like a log.


      • Thanks. It is amazing how some songs transcend time. I wish this one didn’t.


  6. I wish for free grounding for myself and immediate family for a year, including the ability for said grounding to ripple forth effortlessly to the people we touch in some way to be shared on and on.

    I wish for as many kisses and touches as I want, forever, from the person I wish them from.

    And, something intimate and meaningful, to me, in a box wrapped in silver paper with a sparkly red ribbon, uhm or purple ribbon or electric blue ribbon..LOTS OF RIBBONS!

    oh! and a glass of fresh clean water available to anyone who is thirsty, anything they want it.


    • Dear Elisa,
      Four very worthwhile requests !! I hope you mean by grounding, the spiritual grounding and not the allowed out of the house grounding ? Or maybe it is both you are asking for ? I think that you only have to ask the person for the love you crave. A box of multicloured ribbons wrapped in multicoloured ribbons is the way to go. And, yes, everyone should have clean water to drink Hugs. Ralph x


  7. My greatest desire is to have my estranged daughter and grandson to come home. But since that isn’t happening I want the world to realize we all need each other, that one is no better than the other, that we all bleed red we all have the same body parts and the same heart beats in all of us. that we need to open those hearts to those less fortunate and not let the boundaries of this world stop us all from loving and helping one another.


    • Dear Len,
      I have exactly the same problem with my two daughters as you have read on my Thoughts of a Divorced Father page. So I will write this request with you and agree with everything you say. So all I can do is to send out my Love to everyone. Thank you for writing to Ralph Len. Love Ralph x


      • Dearest Len,
        Please read Lada Ray’s comments and my replies towards the bottom of these comments. I am really honoured that a blogger such as yourself could even consider nominating me for an award. Thank you but I’m afraid I must decline. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Ralph x


  8. Dear Ralph-
    Being selfish – I would like to get over this sickness that’s been lingering within me for a week now. I’d love to be healthy again.
    My wish for the world is for a better tomorrow (if it happens today – I won’t complain ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
    & for world PeAce. Sadly – I doubt I’ll live to see the day.
    And – if we’re talking materialistic things – well – I want lots. But – my budget doesn’t allow for more than what I have – which even if I can’t afford to get whatever I want when I want – it’s more than what many others on earth have. My dream splurge would be to get myself a new wardrobe without having to look at prices. Other things on my wish list are – or fun – Pajama Jeans, The Hawaii Chair, tons of warm socks & the best pillow ever – if there is one.
    Will be thrilled to hear from you!
    RoSy ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Dear RoSy,
      I will pray for healing for you and while I am at it, for world peace, but we all know the world peace will only happen after the Return of Christ, so roll on that Day.
      I am sorry to hear that your budgie won’t allow to buy excessive items. A clever bird !! That is quite some fashion statement wearing, Pajama Jeans, a Hawaiian chair as a top, accessorized with a ton of socks and a pillow. A photo of this ensemble will go viral ๐Ÿ˜€ Ralph x


      • Oh how exciting!!! I got a reply! I believe in RALPH! ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. There are so many things I could list but I think perhaps one of the most important for me is to move beyond our prejudices and biases and stop passing judgment unless we have walked in someone else’s shoes. Many of the other taxing problems in the world could be alleviated if we took the time to know one another.


    • Dear LuAnn,
      What a wonderful request. I am amazed as all the comments have asked for desires and dreams beyond materialistic wants. I have the power, which we all have, by thought to change for the better things around us that we know are wrong. For I believe thoughts are things and we can manifest goodness, kindness and love to overcome whatever bothers us. You two are a dream team and I class you as many others, great friends. Ralph x


      • I often wish we lived closer and I could meet you. Perhaps someday…one never knows. I feel you are a most remarkable man. ๐Ÿ™‚


  10. Please could you send a new President for South Africa. He would need to be well educated, beyond reproach, incorruptible, have only one wife, and no girlfriends, and definitely not twenty children. He would also have to really care about the welfare of the poor, and the education of the country’s children, instead of spending taxpayers’ money on his own extravagant lifestyle. Thanks for listening, Santa Ralph. ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Dear Paradise,
      South Africa as most other countries are run by selfish people with politics similar to the Mafia. Many such leaders are overthrown usually by force and replaced by similar people who say one thing but carry on with the old ways. There should be no politics, no individual leader, just teams of people tasked to run as charities are run, with thought and care as their main priorities. That is true government. ๐Ÿ˜€ Ralph


  11. Dear Sant Ralph,

    I know what I’ll ask for may be hard to achieve but there is no such thing as impossible. Therefor, I want to want nothing, and thanks to that be genuinely happy and free.

    Another great post will do too.

    Your faithful follower,


    • Dear Julita, (after so many months I now know your name b&wc. Hi Julita ๐Ÿ˜€ )
      To ask for nothing and to want for nothing is a wonderful request. You will now receive everything you need as your needs are known. Happiness and freedom are needed so urgently by all. We all must work to achieve such a dream. Hugs. Ralph x


    • Julita – I love your request to Santa Ralph. It would be a beautiful world if we did not have to want. That we had the things we needed in order to survive, be healthy and share love. What a wonderful place that would be. Thanks for sharing.


      • I feel the same. I think this world would be a much happier & better place if we’d all at least want less.

        So peace & love, Lori! ๐Ÿ™‚
        Thanks for your response!


  12. Dear Santa Ralph, I do not wish for many material things as I am happy with what I got. Anything else is a bonus. I do wish for love, hugs and cuddles. I wished more people would spread their love all over this world. I’d like to see happiness and that is my greatest desire! Thank you for listening to me. Ute xx


    • Dear Ute,
      Your blog is worth a thousand blogs which generates through you, smiles, love, happiness and well being even though you burn the dinner ๐Ÿ˜€ I am sure that you will soon receive the love, hugs and cuddles that you wish for as you already know that person and he is near to you. Love Ralph x


      • My dear Ralph, thank you so much for this lovely answer, it got tears in my eyes. Wished I could give you a big cuddle too! x


  13. Dear Santa Ralph …. I have a ton wishes and little bit confused which one i must choose, but the biggest wish is hope i can spend upcoming Christmas and holiday seasons with family and someone special :D, share the joy and blessing. But maybe this time i only spend time with family but it’s ok ….. life is joy. But wish me luck hope all my dream come true lol. Have a nice week Ralph, thanks.


    • Dear Yessie,
      I have read and slept on your request. Good morning. Spending Christmas with your family is the way to go as you may meet other family members that you have not seen for ages. Your special friend, I am sure, you will see a lot more often during the year. Have fun, have a lovely Christmas and I will raise my glass to you and all my other friends in WordPress during my Christmas dinner to wish you all health, happiness and love. Hugs. Ralph x


  14. Dear Commenters,
    Now it’s my turn to ask you all for my dream. My dream is that wherever we are throughout the world that “all of humanity can find humanity in all”. That we can find in our hearts forgiveness, compassion, help one another and reprove where necessary those who know these things but act with selfishness etc. Love and hugs. Ralph x


  15. Dear Sa — Ralph ๐Ÿ™‚
    I could wish for universal peace (or world domination) or maybe for the existence of sparkling unicorns. But I think these kind of wishes are in a dimension which is way too high. So instead I guess, I’ll go for hoping for less teenage pregnancy. And free hugs for everyone. At least it’s a start ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • Dear Scarlett,
      Sparkling Unicorns are a great idea, especially the ones with great powers. Your other request is for teenage pregnancies to be reduced. The old method of chaperones worked but at the moment some teenagers need a little self respect, self control and realise that what they do is not PC. I am sure that we all welcome your hugs. I know that I do.Thank you. Ralph x


  16. Dear Santa,

    This year you seem to be overly generous with your kindness, as I received a prompt letter from you requesting my deepest darkest wishes for the upcoming season. Since the lump or coal and sticks of wood that I have received in previous years are no long available for you to use in case of emergencies, I thought you might be feeling a bit befuddled by my truest desires. Since you were so kind to send me the letter, I will respond in kind.

    Santa, I would like world peace. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Food in every region of the world that fills belly’s and gives them that extra bite more as icing on the cake. No more human trafficking, regardless of the depraved ideas they are being sold for. Kindness provided to each one, but also to all things. There is only one Earth and if we continue to treat her poorly, we will not have the ability to make the fore-mentioned gifts come about.

    And on a purely selfish level, I would like a Ford F350 and all gas paid for the rest of its life. If you don’t mind, a four door would be even better! A fluffy puppy under the Christmas tree anda light at the end of the tunnel (the batteries you sent earlier are almost dead). ๐Ÿ˜›

    With all my Christmas Jolly,

    ps. you can always send the lump of coal and stick of wood to Ms. Migraine (teehehe)


    • Dear Lori,
      Wow. A post with a whole bag of requests. I agree with you for all the humanity dreams that you wish for and as you have been a good girl this year I will see what I can do.
      Now about your selfish wishes. You don’t ask for much, do you ????
      The Ford F350 is a bit too much for my credit card. It just had a nervous breakdown ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I have had to buy the Saudi Arabian oilfields to keep it topped up.

      A fluffy puppy should be under your Christmas tree.

      And now a present, coal and sticks for Mrs Migraine. Sorry no light at the tunnel but the snowman has Christmas lights to blind Mrs Migraine and she may run away.

      A Jolly, Jolly, Christmas. Hugs Ralph x


      • hahaha….. well it’s good a credit card gets a nervous breakdown every once in awhile. That’s what keeps some of us in check…..right?

        Now those are my kinda lights and we could wrap them around the fluffy puppy so he/she could light the way. ๐Ÿ˜€

        As for the statement that I’ve been a good girl this year…..that’s all relative right? lol I sure don’t feel or look good, but I love the gifts you gave Ms. Migraine. I hope you send them with one swift kick.

        ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hugs Santa!


      • Dear Lori,
        You are one of the most deserving Ladies on this planet. You are suffering so much with almost a permanent migraine yet you give so much in making and giving Lapghans of Love to people that really need to be warm. I am afraid that I could not get you the items you asked for but I hope that you will accept this small gift of special large handle crochet all sizes. This is a gift from my heart as a thank you for being my friend. Love and hugs. Santa Ralph x ๐Ÿ˜€


    • It was encouraging to read someone else’s materialistic wishes, even if they were tongue-in-cheek…. I’ve procrastinated on even ‘liking’ this post (because it is the sort of post you cannot simply do so without adding a comment – or, in this case, a request)…because I have an awful lot of trouble asking for anything materialistic and I certainly don’t expect you to be able to grant nonmaterial wishes. So, the encouragement has led me to wish for this: the set of things my youngest children (the ones who live with me) have asked for that I cannot provide for Christmas… the camera my second-oldest daughter asked for, the new pair of ice skates my third oldest daughter asked for, the marching band jacket my oldest daughter asked for, and the archery set my son asked for. I am thankful for your post, as it gave me the opportunity to even just think what it might be like to grant their wishes, even if all that happens is you can wish for them to have these things, too.
      Hugs to you, Santa Ralph ๐Ÿ™‚


      • Dear Lyann.
        Your request requires Santa Ralph to send you an email. Prepare to receive one very soon, probably tomorrow afternoon, my time. Hugs Ralph x


      • Lyann, I have been there….unfortuantely, many times in my life. Your children know with everything absolute that if you could, those wishes would be under the tree for them.

        Posting what your children would like most says volumes of who you are as a mother. Merry Christmas.


      • You and your children are very welcome Lyann. A very Merry Christmas to you and your talented family. Love Ralph x ๐Ÿ™‚


  17. Dear Santa Ralph,
    What an imaginative idea for a post. You never cease to amaze me. So, you are collecting wishes, then offering sound advice in return. Almost like Dear Abby turns into Mrs. Claus. Or Santa turns into Frasier. Hmmm Well, my Jolly friend, I am well fixed for wishes at present, so I’m going to wish for you, and for another friend is also estranged from her daughter. I know how difficult it is when those you love the most won’t communicate with you. You move on in life, but the longing is always there. My friend hasn’t heard from her daughter in over 10 years, and she doesn’t know what happened. She’s tried everything she knows, but nothing works. So, Santa Ralph, for you and Elane, and for others that are estranged from the ones they love, I wish for forgiveness, for a peaceful heart, for an eradication of the conditions that caused the estrangements in the first place, so that they don’t continue, and for clear and genuine communication. That is my wish.


    • Dear Marsha,
      YOU never cease to amaze me !! Not because after Ute and Lori got off my knee, you plonked yourself down so quickly, but with your wish !! What a lovely, kind, generous thought for all of us who have family relationship problems. I do really pray that for all of us these issues are resolved quickly and amicably. Thank you so much dear friend and I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year. Love and hugs. Ralph x


      • Santa Ralph, your cyber-knees are strong, and hold many wish makers, and in the listening and responding, you life enlivens the lives of many. Thanks for the well-wishes, and, Santa Ralph, may your own dreams come true. Marsha ๐Ÿ™‚


  18. haha! What a great post Ralph!!

    Dear Ralph, I wish for many more readers and great posts on my blog ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • Dear Cecilie,
      Your two wishes are the most difficult. Saving the universe is easy compared to gaining more readers for your blog. I know !! advertising , marketing and a famous face. You can borrow my PI (next comment) as Carolyn has lost her glasses and marbles, but I do love her. Great posts on your blog needs skill, determination, effort, extraordinary talent and boobs. Have fun with your blog and writing in this comment area should draw readers to your blog by the thousa….one or two ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hugs Ralph x


  19. Dear Santa Ralph,
    All I want for Christmas is YOU…!
    That’s right…!
    All I want for Christmas is YOU…!
    I have to say it at least twice because you may not hear me the first time…!
    Can I have you…?
    Pretty please….
    Oh, go on…
    Let me, go on…
    I’ll be good; honest I will…..! ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Dear Carolyn,
      Of course you may have me. You can pick yourself off the floor now. But before I am had, I will have to check you out. I will be sending over my own personal PI. He has recently come from the Islands and this is his ID photograph.

      He will check you out thoroughly ๐Ÿ˜‰
      You will also have to fill in a 659 page application form from Help the Aged.
      Be nice and have a good time with my PI. Hugs Ralph x


      • He will never take the place of YOU, Ralph… Sorry, but I only have eyes for you…. Send the form by post, or bring it yourself……
        659 pages is a mere handful, a trifle…
        Why, I’d swim the deepest ocean, scale the highest mountain…..
        Oh, I’m getting carried away, Ralph….. Ralph…..


      • Oh Carolyn, you must swim the deepest ocean from Australia to Spain and climb the highest mountain a few miles north of Gibraltar. My basic calculation reckons that if you start swimming west at one mile an hour against a current of two miles an hour, you will be in New Zealand by next Christmas. I can wait. Ralph x


  20. I would like… a cuddle with a puppy. Just for a few days then I will give it back to its mum.


    • Dear Kate,
      Would you like to cuddle a puppy like this girl ?

      Hugs. Ralph ๐Ÿ™‚

      • So sorry Schtiel. I copied it into Google Translate on Detect Language and it came up as Russian. I love SF as well especially the older films and TV series. ๐Ÿ˜€


  22. Dear Ralph,
    This year, I don’t really know what I want. There’s nothing material I wish for. For the moment I have everything. My friends, family.
    There’s only one thing: the heart of the one I love ๐Ÿ™‚ The only wish I can have for the end of year holidays is that I am loved back.
    Happy December!


    • Dear Daph,
      No chocolates and crisps ?? Wow, what a U-turn. I am sure that you are loved very much. I know I do with dozens of other bloggers. The special one you are longing for cannot be forced to love you, so maybe you will have to wait and see. Hugs Ralph x


    • Thank you so much Jade, a wonderful thought, but I am a blog award free zone. But I really do appreciate your offer. Sorry ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Ralph x


      • It’s entirely up to you, so not to worry. I thought your blog was great, that’s why I mentioned you. Perhaps you’ll get more traffic anyway.
        Cheers and best! ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Dear Santa Ralph,
    I’ve been real good this year. I really DESERVE lots of presents. I deserve em, and I want em!! I want it all!! You hear me you old fart??!! I know you. You’re trying to capture all of the girls for yourself. Hmmph…I’ll bet you haven’t even been that good this year. Not as good as me anyway. Course, I don’t live in a fancy villa in Spain like you do…..Oh tarnation, I don’t mean to be grumbly Santa. I’m sorry!! You can just leave my lump of coal in the stocking with the others……..Hmmm, now if I can just figure out how to generate enough pressure….Let’s see, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend..”


    • Dear Scrooge’s brother (the greedy one).
      You have been very good this year until this comment, so a little Koala told me !! I’m sorry, Santa Ralph cannot help you this year. You have a whole year in which to change your ways and become a good boy. A good reason to go walkabout. Ralph


      • You’re probably right….Sigh. Oh well, have to think of something to increase my “worthiness.” Can’t go walkabout here….the exercise would probably do me good but too many people and not enough room. I will figure out something, uh huh, sure will!!
        So what is your wish Santa?? What do you want the elves to conjure up for you this year….I read the one further up the list. Now I want the real story!!


      • The real story. You want to know the real story !! The story that is real !! Have you got a week ? Settle down then Howard, put your slippers on and light your pipe. Sit down in your high backed chair by the fire. That’s it. Stoke it up with the poker and pour yourself a brandy. And you can leave the maid alone as I need your full attention. Settled ?. Good !! Now what was I going to say ? I am sure that I was going to say something. Must be my age. Bye Howard ๐Ÿ™‚


  24. Goodness Gracious Alive Ralph, you do get the conversational comments going. How very absolutely completely and in all ways wonderful! My wish a very simple one Ralph. It’s to you. May the love and generosity of true caring that you bestow upon each person who follows,likes and comments to you be returned to you fully and completely. You do truly deserve it! With sincerely love and wishes for a wonderful holiday season for you, Penny.


    • Dearest Penny,
      It’s been such a long time since we last talked to each other and, this time, what a wonderful kind comment. Thank you so much. I will treasure what you have just said. There are many more a lot more needy than me but thank you anyway. Hugs Ralph x


      • It seems to me that those who “give” are just as deserving of love and good wishes as those who “receive” my wise and gentle friend! Penny xx


  25. Dear Ralph… how sweet! Love this notion. How many sat on your knee? Just asking!!

    Ralph/Santa/Mercy/God, I wish for Christmas the strength to empower my own inner realisation of what I must do to reclaim my life, my health. I have the power, but to EMPOWER it, oh just a tad of help with the strength as I feel so awfully tired, about now…

    (hope that wasn’t too serious, but you got me in a quiet moment!)


    • Dear Noeleen. I hope that you have been a good girl this year ? I had 31 sit on my knee all at once. I will never get over it. The pain that is !!
      I am thinking of what to say and watching the snow fall on my blog. I must get that roof fixed !!
      You cannot empower anything alone, no matter how much you try. I believe that we are watched, protected, guided and loved no matter how we see ourselves in the world around us. Ask, that’s all you need to do is ask for guidance, protection and love. It is so easy to say thank you as well for your experiences, thoughts and ideas. I do this every night (when I remember). Another thing I do is, if I have what I think is a bad thought, is to say simply, that is not my thought, I want nothing to do with it, go away, go back to where it came from. It takes time to accept all of this as normality. My. What happened. Am I becoming a guru as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ And a very merry Christmas to you as well Noeleen. Hugs. Ralph x


    • Dear Sheri. I am not going to preach to the converted. For you have THE special blog on the Internet which teaches us that there is so much more than our limited perceptions of Humanity.You know as well as I do that our Path is greater than we could ever realise in our wildest dreams. If your children are meant to walk that Path with you then your wish will surely be granted. Your work is special and I treasure your words. Hugs Ralph x

  29. I have just received this from a friend in an email. SO TRUE !!
    “Dear Santa,
    I don’t want much for Christmas, I just want the person reading this to be happy ..
    Friends are the fruit cake of life- some nutty, some soaked in alcohol, some sweet but mix them together and they’re my friends.
    Send this to all your fruit cakes.”
    Love Ralph x
