I Could ……


My apartment in Spain is pretty much finished. I am living on my own with 3 cats ( who would be looked after if I went away for a while). I am very happy here but I am going to push my luck even more. I have so many options, choices to make and I am asking for your help.



  1. I could stay at home, blog, visit friends, go shopping, watch TV, go to the occasional party
  2. I could go on a cruise possibly meeting up with other blogging friends in the ports the ship visits
  3. I could fly to anywhere in the world and also meet up with blogging friends
  4. I could join a dating agency and get mixed up with an 18 year old Russian who turns out to be a 20 stone wrestler
  5. I could go to Vegas and marry the first woman who flashes her eyelashes at me
  6. I could fall for a fellow blogger who flashes her comments at me

Can you think of anything I missed ?


So what do you think I could do ??

  1. I think that there are many options between some and some others. blink
    By the way, is a blink the same as an eyelash flash? is there room for misinterpretation? perhaps delusion? Creativity and Imagination are excellent bedfellows, but have you SEEEEEEEN them the next morning?!?! whoa…


    • Hi Elisa. There are so many great options I could choose.*flash blink strobe* The cruise in the Med looks promising * spark twinkle * I don’t think that there is a cruise ship port in Oklahoma ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  2. Ah Ralph… I wish I could wave a magic wand for you. I will keep you in my thoughts, that what you desire will come to you.


    • You are so sweet Linda. I am sure that your thoughts are being heard and acted on. When you find your magic wand just whack me over the head with it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  3. Ralph. everyone should be as fortunate as you to be in a quandry or should that be dilemma or maybe perplexiity about what to do next. Why don’t you write down your choices on small strips of wood and have someone mix up the answers for you. Then while blindfolded draw a straw, so to speak. Then whatever you pick will be your choice. How complicated is that? Or not? ๐Ÿ™‚ Or stay at home and go for 2-3 days or more on sightseeing trips all over Spain. Lots of great places to see, eat, and photograph. Hire a good driver and someone that is fun and away you go. ๐Ÿ™‚ Or not! ๐Ÿ™‚


    • I have to be very clear about what I am about to do Yvonne. I would hate to mess this up as you have worked so hard on my problem. Okay I have got 7 strips of wood from the base of my bed which has now collapsed in a tangled mess of mattress, sheets, pillows and cats. There’s no one around so I’ll blindfold myself and toss the strips of wood in the air. Okay. I have just broken a lampshade. We are doing well !! Got one. It says “This way up”. I’ll keep working on this ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


      • Ok. You have got my laughing till I am crying. Yes you have that effect on people. Could you make it a bit simpler and get some of those things that you stir drinks with? I really am trying tlo help you here. Have you THUNK it through? I hope you know that I am joking- more or less….

  4. Decisions, decisions. ๐Ÿ˜• I guess that your choice depends on how much excitement you think you can cope with. ๐Ÿ˜€


    • Men are really good at decision making. You have now given me 2 decisions and I am undecided which one to opt for. I’ll go for the second one as the first one will probably be the wrong one ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Excitement level !! Wow. I had not thought of excitement being thrown into the equation. You’ve got me Sylvia. Your comment has given me too much excitement for one day. Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  5. Keep all options open – live it up – & just do what your sweet caring heart desires!
    And – have fun while doing it ๐Ÿ˜‰
    xx Saludos y Abrazos xx


    • Can I hire you as my Romance Consultant RoSy as you always have special comment for me ? This one is so positive and covers all the bases. Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  6. I am for nr. 1 and nr. 2 ! You can stay as you used to stay with no trouble and have your splendid life like you used to have, or you can try to get trouble and can enjoy maybe a love boat story which can end with a beautiful marriage or a broken heart (so trouble) the choice is yours Ralph ๐Ÿ™‚ !


    • That’s a great idea Shiro. Keep my apartment as a base and go on a love boat cruise. I’ll have to Google what a love boat cruise entails. I wonder if I have to be on my best behaviour….. impossible !! Is that part of the package …. get married or a broken heart ?? Ship’s captains can conduct marriages. I hope he keeps his eye on the ship’s course or the marriage could end up on the rocks before it’s consumated ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


      • Hahaha, yes you can also end up on the rocks or on a beautiful woman who will take care of you and I really wish this for you. Someone who really will have a crush on you and that won`t be difficult because with your sense of humour you can make shine everyone :), wish you a happy Monday evening with a little kiss,from your friend Serach Xoxo ๐Ÿ™‚


      • Wow Serach what a lovely reply. I just love your play on words ….. or on a beautiful woman who will take care of you …… love it !! I have noticed that no one has stepped forward and said that she will come on a cruise with me ….. yet !! Big kiss. xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  7. Choices! Choices! Choices! Oh, what to do? What a huge dilemma to have to solve! Ralph, your humor just makes me smile…..


    • OMG. I have just fluffed my way through 2 decisions and now I have 3 choices. I asked for help Annie not multichoice choices. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And you have even thrown a dilemma in the pot. I am a mere male lost in the complexities of womanhood. Is this what is in store for me on a love boat ? Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€ hehe !!


      • I just picked myself up off the floor from laughing so much at your reply, thanks for the exercise! Your sense of humor just rocks my boat, so I am sure you will have no problem finding a lady friend whether it be through decisions, choices or dilemma’s! lol…


      • Thanks Annie for your faith in my finding a lady.
        Letโ€™s do some sums. There are approximately 3 1/2 billion women on this planet. Say 1 1/2 billion are too young or too old. Leaves 2 billion eligible. 1 billion are married or in a relationship. Leaves 1 billion. 999.999 million have issues, PMT, divorce, hate men etc. That leaves just one woman and she loves Cliff Richard. ๐Ÿ˜‰ hehe !!


  8. LOL… I say go for the cruise! Maybe it’s because I still have yet to go on one myself. I just think it would be grand if you could meet many blogging friends and possibly even a lady friend while cruising.


    • Go for the cruise it is then Rene my friend.. It’s late now here in Spain so I should get some shut eye. There are so many different types of cruises, not only to destinations, but type of vessel, types of passengers, fares, hammocks etc. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am going to need expert help on this to find out what is best for me. A lady friend would be the cherry on the cake. Have a lovely week. Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  9. Throw your self completely and unashamedly into life Ralph, think positive things, and I’m sure it will throw something positive back at you. That’s my advice. ๐Ÿ™‚


    • I really needed this comment of yours just at this very moment Tracy. I was just about to write something to someone which I would have regretted saying as soon as I pressed Send. So I never will. Amazing how one is being helped at particularly difficult times to do the right thing. I so believe that I am being helped through my life. Your words are so true and full of wisdom. Big hug for that. Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


    • You are so right Sheri. It’s a “what the heck” moment !! Dating agencies are so formal. I would rather be on the deck of a ship, turn a corner on deck, collide with a beautiful blonde (like you) who is carrying a tray of drinks. The tray tips all its contents down the front of her white dress.

      Now there’s two endings here:

      1. She shouts at me, whacks me over the head with the tray and pushes me over the rail into the white churning waves of the ship’s wake.


      2. Her eyes lower, her cheeks turn red with embarrassment and says, “I am so sorry it is my fault I was not watching where I was going”. I drape my coat over her coffee stained cleavage and gently lead her back to her stateroom as she is really rich and gorgeous ………

      Which ending will happen to me ??

      Love Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


      • PS I have just commented on your about and I don’t know why I was guided to press your almost illegible Linkedin link. The woman in my story (above) could be you M’lady ๐Ÿ˜€


    • Wow. Thanks Beth. I am getting really good vibes from you and all the other commenters. A really big hug. Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  10. How can I help with such big choices? Most mornings I have trouble deciding if I want porridge or toast for breakfast, or both, or none at all, or something else entirely ๐Ÿ™‚


    • I hope you make your decision by lunchtime as you’ll have to scrap the idea of breakfast then begin choosing what to have for lunch ….. tea ….. dinner …. supper …… and end up with a biscuit in bed. ๐Ÿ˜‰ What a day of choices for you Gallivanta ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  11. It all really depends on how adventurous you are ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think you should try each one of those ideas ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Adventurous Michelle ?? Oh okay. I will have to skydive onto the cruise ship to board her ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll do that ! Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€

  12. Train to be a tattoo artist, get another apartment in Vegas, and spend half your time in each place looking for tattoo doppelgangers! ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • Hi Claire (I am using my psychic powers to divine your name) … WooooOOOOoooo !! ๐Ÿ˜‰ … welcome to Bluefish Way ๐Ÿ˜€

      Spain Tattooist

      Vegas Tattooist

      Your madcap idea works. It took me ages ….. about 2 seconds to train to be 2 tattooists.
      I’m bored with that. Could I do something else now like giving you a hug ? Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  13. Just an FYI, they don’t flash “eyelashes” in Vegas. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Choose it all! No limits!!


    • Duped by another scam ๐Ÿ˜‰ The brochure said ” Vegas …… Flash your eyelashes at Ralph for marriage ……… Katie’s Con ACME. Inc. Corp.

      I’ll choose them all at your advice Katie. If it all goes tits-up I will know who to thank ๐Ÿ˜‰


  14. Much too fabulous, so elated your apartment is now finished and most scintillating! What a perfect feline-swathed haven!

    My dear matie, if any of those darling options include pulling into port here in ol’ briny, lizard-dappled, alligator-infused Florida, I am all for pushing that option mightily! Sir and I cannot wait to haul you to a swamp, I mean, very safe natural spring, and push you in, er, I mean, lead you along the boardwalk to gawp at darling gators, er…I mean sweet manatees and cute gars and so forth!!!

    Right-ho, whatever you choose, they are all smashing options and wishing you the very best with your new adventures to come!! Innumerable cheers dear Ralph,

    Autumn Jade


    • Hello my salt soaked friend ๐Ÿ˜€ I would love to take a love boat cruise out of Miami with your briny permission of course and before I depart on the High Seas I would love to meet you Autumn Jade & Sir. I have done the Everglades air boat ride and seen the gator wrestling, both in my room in the Best Western Hotel ๐Ÿ˜‰ But to meet you both would be a great honour before you throw me in the swamp. Big hug. Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  15. My vote – number 6 any time -:)! But you already know that -:)!


    • Of course I know that my friend. I put #6 in the post just for you. Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


  16. option 1 sounds like a safe bet
    options 2 + 3 sound like a lot of fun!
    options 3 and 4 will break your heart (and your pocket)
    option 5 could really be a 200 lb bloke sitting in front of a computer in Nigeria…


    • Option 5 must be the brother of option 4 then ๐Ÿ™‚
      This post has got me confused. I haven’t a clue what to do. Move to Croatia or Italy perhaps ? ๐Ÿ˜‰


      • for Croatia you will need a medical certificate, I can introduce you to our Dr Who who issued ours.
        Italy is soon bankrupt (much like Spain, really, so you might as well stay put), I would suggest a cruise in the Caribbean or Med or such places, so if you like a place you can just decide NOT to return on board… ๐Ÿ˜‰


      • I am very tempted to go on a love boat, singles cruise out of Miami which is a better option than the 200lb Nigerian travel agent I know has to offer ๐Ÿ˜‰ Miami looks the best from what I’ve seen so far. American women love the British men as Brits always seem to play the villains in modern movies. I could be a bad boy ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Oooh. You’ve got a Dr Who as well. Mine spends all his time tut-tutting at a computer screen. ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. I’m with Daniela at #6. Flashing comments are the best. Some women are like me and can’t wink, therefore flashing eyelashes are out of the question. Some women just plain flash, and there you’d have a hottie! So back to the comments. But you can always blog on the cruise ship, and all the beautiful women will flock over to see what humor you have written on your screen, and you could have the best of both worlds – eyelashes and comments. ๐Ÿ™‚ I vote for blogging on the cruise ship at the bar. ๐Ÿ™‚ xox


    • #6 it is then !! Flashing comments are definitely a go in my book !! A hottie flashing a comment is a new one, but I’m game ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ralph xox ๐Ÿ˜€


      • Bring on the hotties! Oh, wait, Smokey, I don’t think Ralph meant you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I know, Ralph loves bears, but I think he prefers women. Yes, Fanny is cute, and she’s about your size. Hmmm Well you’ll have to talk to Ralph about that. Yes, he has a guest room. hmmm OK, I’m out of my depth, here. Ralph help! xoxo


      • I’m out of my depth as well. I don’t mind you talking to Manny in this thread Marsha …… he’s not HERE !! He’s with Carol !! Haha !! ๐Ÿ˜€ xox
