Toe The Line !!

This post came about when I was visiting Pelly‘s post Siren’s call . While chatting to her about her unique style of photography I remarked on her toes. Well, blow me !! I never knew that there were so many styles of toes dangling off the end of the feet of humanity.

There are these five

separatorI took a photo of my foot and frightened myself to death. So I will not show my Egyptian foot to you as you may be having your dinner. A certain blogger who shall be nameless,ย  keeps calling me Ra, maybe there is something in it. ๐Ÿ™‚

separatorSo, who are your toes rooting for ???

  1. My Greek freek feet will stay snuggled in my special fuzzy gator slippers. WP may censor your site if they were unleashed on the public. ;). Great post Ra. ๐Ÿ˜Ž


    • Thank you for saving me from the Wrath Of WP Katie. I am indebted to you forever. How is your training of fuzzy gator wrestling going? Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  2. After long consideration I think my feet are Greek, so I am a Greek Goddess! No? Well the top is German the feet are Greek, what is the middle bit??? I wonder????


    • You are a Goddess with an International conundrum dear Ute ๐Ÿ˜€ I have a feeling that the middle bit may be a secret of the Gods only to be revealed while dancing with the Stars. Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  3. LoL, hmm, I guess based on circumstance here I am one of these who have “cat’s paws” ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Purrfectly understandable dear YC. Sorry, no milk tonight as Cleo has it all ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ra xox :D.


  4. Mine don’t look like any of those. I must be out of this world! ๐Ÿ˜†


    • Greetings from the Planet Earth dear RoSy. You may as well go home as there is no intelligent life to be found around here ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


      • ๐Ÿ˜† LMAO! ๐Ÿ˜†
        Thanks for the warning Ralph. But – I’m sent on a special mission & must complete it before heading back. Alien Hugs from me to you!


  5. If “adinparadise” is Cleo, I am Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, beauty and eternal youth! Why? I have Greek feet!


    • Hi my dear friend Aphrodite. Are you having a holiday in Cyprus again this year? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


      • Dear Ralph. I am always and everywhere. ๐Ÿ™‚ Aphrodite ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Hi my Egyptian friend. Taking your sock off helps to determine your root. I hope the other foot is the same ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  6. After staring at my feet and think about it for some time I tend to say Greek (which is, to 1/4, absolutely right) ๐Ÿ˜€
    And the looks of those guys’ faces are priceless!


    • Wow !! Another Greek Goddess !! I hope the other 3/4 is the same ๐Ÿ˜€
      Yes, priceless. It is a very funny video ๐Ÿ˜€ Ra xox


  7. Hi Ralph, as usual, wonderfully hilarious. Very funny story here, I was showing the different foot shapes to my daughter and I noticed that while my toe formation was Egyptian (being Scandinavian that was a surprise) but I saw that my daughters toe formation was obviously Greek! This is where my brain shut off and I pointed at the drawing and said to her “Hey look Christina, your Greek” At which point she gave me that “look” and my brain came back on again. Christina’s father was born in Greece, so she is in fact half Greek, hence the foot shape. Talk about suspension of intelligence! I loved this post, thanks, for the laughs my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚ xo, and we both loved the video!


    • Hi my friends Penny and Christina. Never a “duh” moment in your family then ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am so pleased that you both had fun with this post and I will be down your way when I have had a sleep. It’s 2am here. Love and hugs. Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


    • You learn a lot on my posts my dear friend Yvonne. But none of it of any use to anyone ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have a lovely weekend. Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


      • I do learn things.The best part of your blog is that you have such a keen sense of humor. I really admire you for that. I have one day left of the week-end. Week-end days are just days. I am a loner and not much of a mixter. I am amused by my pets and anything that is humorous. I’m not a recluse though. I like people but I just am not into idle chit chat and gossip. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • I am pretty much the same as you, alone (all say “Aaah”), I have my pets (all say “Oooh”) and I don’t gossip. Did you hear about the blogger who ……. (an hour later) …… and then she went and ……. (a week later)……. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  8. My feet are kind of in-between Egyptian and Roman, but I have petite Asian feet! Love the accompanying photos and captions…. LOL


    • Then you must also be on a secret mission my dear friend Rene ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have a great Sunday. Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


    • Maybe I am your long lost mad eccentric uncle that the family does not talk about, dear niece ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  9. Hilarious dear “Ra” (…Copyright ยฉ all rights reserved)!
    It’s great to know that there are so many Greeks around ๐Ÿ˜‰ Welcome dear friends!!!
    Wow!! the Celtic foot is sooo bizarre!!! I’d love to see a specimen…
    Great egyptian walk tutorial by the way ๐Ÿ˜€
    Ah! and did you know that Cleopatra was Greek? (


    • Hello my Greek Goddess with beautiful eyes ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much for your permission to use a photograph, I really do appreciate it. So many Greeks here, wonderful !! And I am really surprised, (so must be the imposter Cleopatra be as I almost patted her asp ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), surprised that Cleopatra was Greek !! I hope you are having a great Sunday (what’s left of it !! ) Love Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  10. After about an hour of intense toe inspection I came to the conclusion that I fall under the…(wait for it)…None of the above. That must mean I am either unique or an alien. Very funny video. Love reading your posts Ralph. ROFLMAO!!! Take care and have a wonderful day!!!


    • no noooooooooooo it’s all just part of the EVIL government plot, where they altered your toes and …


      • That’s it, then Frank !! Elisa has just solved your quandary. There is no hope for you then …….. unless ?? ….. no !!… I better not tell you or I might put my foot in it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have fun. Ra ๐Ÿ˜€


      • Yes, that evil government plot Codename: ToeJam. I always wondered why my toes looked so perfect. Now I know the answer. Makes me wonder what else did they do. Hmmmmmm!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


  11. Hello, I have Egyptian roots and I didn’t know ๐Ÿ™‚
    Love the picture of Cathy Staff so hilarious and the under the table flirt video was also very nice……..hahaha! Wish you Buonanotte Ralph Xoxo


    • That’s enough about your hair Shir …. oh !! Egyptian roots !! … silly me …Julita reckons we are family with Egyptian toes …. so welcome back into the fold my friend ๐Ÿ˜€ Good night and sweet dreams. Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  12. Dearest Ra, I can’t see my toes because….. my foot is in my mouth? I’m too fat??? I’ve had all my toes chopped off??? Actually, since I’m in a hotel computer room, with some French people, I’m afraid if I take my shoes off to examine my hitherto unscrutinized toes, that I might raise their suspicions of Americans. I’m going to hazard a guess at Egyptian, and dare not be Celtic, since those have been declared bizarre. IF my toes ARE Egyptian, what in the world happened to my thick black hair??? Do you have an answer for me dear Ra?


    • Hi MVBF Marsha. What am I going to do with you? I shouldn’t worry about the French people as they do strange things like squashing grapes with their feet to make wine. I cannot comment on which root you are until you tell me definitely which one you ARE. So put your bare foot up on the keyboard and compare your toes. While you are there, you can add nail polish ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


      • Squish, squish. It was a little sloshy in there. I may have to start sucking on my toes, though! Grapes, yum!! Mmm


  13. I am a Greek. And the only Greek name beginning with the right letter is : Vanessa !!!!
    Thank you for this deep insight into our characters and origins… Vanessa


    • I knew it !! You have always been Greek to me Vanessa, but in a lovely way ๐Ÿ˜€
      Do have a lovely week and take care. Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  14. mine looks like Celtic……. but I am Italian….. something wrong going on here… ๐Ÿ™‚


    • It is so simple. It is the scotch …… oops!! … Scottish in your jeans … genes… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  15. So.. The minute I saw this I raised my leg up and rested it on the table to inspect my toes. And… I’m not too sure… Looks like I’m either of Greek or Alien decent. Haha.


    • I would go for the Alien, Rynna, as you are such a traveller ๐Ÿ˜‰ See you again in 5 light years, and I appreciate your decency ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


      • NOTIFICATION: Rynna is unable to reply to your comment at this moment as her status has been set to be-back-in-5-light-years.


      • Hi NOTIFICATION. Welcome to my blog. Thanks for telling me about Rynna, your mind is so WARPed ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


    • Then you must be a Greek Goddess dear Ella. What fun !! Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


    • You have really put your foot in it now LuAnn. You may have a split personality. Do you talk to yourself a lot ?? Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


    • Dutch paws are a new one on me AW and your Granny must be fun. Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


    • Hi ks3nia, You have always been a Greek Goddess to me ๐Ÿ˜€ Ra xox


  16. Interesting little post… apparently I’m Egyptian.. I have trouble believing that, but it saddens me that I didn’t “inherit” my Germanic roots ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • So sad Krys *crying*. What will you do? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Never mind you and I are family ….. aren’t you lucky ? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


      • Are you really that lucky, Ralph? I don’t know if you’d want us to be part of the same gene pool haha


      • Someone has to splash around in our gene pool, so it may as well be us. NOTICE: No Diving Allowed ๐Ÿ˜‰


      • Damn. That’s the best part ๐Ÿ˜‰


  17. Oh my gosh – you had me look! Distinctly Egyptian. Is that fair dinkum though??


    • Then we belong to the same Fair Dinkum family dear Noeleen ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ralph xox


  18. Dear Ralph,

    I had to take a stroll on my olde weathered Egyptian phalanges into the delightful blog of a certain Pelly you mentioned and was absolutely enthralled with her fabulous photography! What art! And what a hoot this post is. Brilliant! Horrendous hoards of cheers,



    • So we are family my friend !! Egyptian through and through. How exciting !! Pelly is very talented and has a keen and distinctive photographic skill. I am so pleased that you had a look around her blog. Have a lovely day Autumn Jade. Ra xox ๐Ÿ˜€


      • Of course we are family, dear Dr. Uncle Ra, PhUn. I suspected such all the time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Yes, I have transformed into a quite an avid fan of exquisite Pelly’s photographic skill, most indubitably. Thankee for mentioning her in your post.

        You too matie, hope you are enjoying an absolutely scintillating day indeed!
