    • Hi Gallivanta πŸ˜€ You would have been welcome to pretty much the whole bowl as only a couple of us had room for the trifle. The rest were full after eating so much πŸ˜€ Ralph xox πŸ˜€

      PS. I must have had the fastest LIKE on WP record, about 5 seconds, not bad for a 40 photo slideshow !! Not from you or Wendy by the way!!


      • A whole bowl of trifle to myself; divine. Ummm, well…. I think I saw your party face and pressed like immediately. Then I took my time scrolling through the photos. I assure you, I looked at everyone πŸ™‚ …I am that type of Gall.


      • No. No. No. Don’t be greedy as you would have had to share the trifle with Valerie πŸ˜€ I expect you are still looking at certain party goers. What a Gall !! πŸ˜‰


      • Oh, all right then. I will share the trifle with one other if I must. After all it is not my birthday. And eyes only for you, Ralph…but, hey, that means I didn’t need to look at 40 photos after all πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


    • Hi Alastair πŸ˜€ It’s a shame we all don’t live nearer. It’s meant to be a small world nowadays but it’s not that small. Ralph πŸ˜€


    • Really ??? *singing in a party tone*
      Happy birthday to you.
      Happy birthday to you.
      Happy birthday dear Bethhhhh.
      Happy birthday to you.

      SPEEEECH !!

      I hope you had a lovely day my friend. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  1. Oh Yes, I would come. It looks like a fun party and that birthday cake looks soo good. I can also play with the dog.


    • Hi YC πŸ˜€ Yes. We did have fun !! Now what’s all this about playing with the dog ?? I’m more fun ……but, I suppose, I don’t have a waggy tail πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  2. Thanks for sharing your fun party with your good friends. Though I am too far away in person, you definitely brought me there in spirit (though not with alcoholic spirits, alas!)


    • Hello Catherine πŸ˜€
      Alas, poor Catherine, in yonder land she be.
      What magick spell to bring her here so she could party
      Day and night, night and day imbibing Cava free.
      Alas, poor Catherine, in yonder land she be.
      Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  3. Ay Ralph!
    You always crack me up with your commentary on the photos!
    And – of course – I would have gone. Would you have been my date or would I have had to find my own?
    {Saludos y Abrazos}


    • Hey RoSy my date !! πŸ˜€ i don’t know how I survived the party without you πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  4. Oooh, you have such elegant friends! I’d have to get a whole new ward-robe to attend your parties. But, it would be worth it, I do believe. πŸ™‚


    • Hi Yvonne πŸ˜€ No need to bring your own furniture. Come as you are !! πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • Hello Voluptulusula πŸ˜€ Wow. What a party goer ! A trifle over the top but what the heck…..it’s a party !! πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  5. I would have come of course to see all your wonderful friends again…. and for the trifle…naturally, it looks delicious. Love parties!


    • Hi Ute πŸ˜€ It’s a shame you weren’t here for this one. They all asked after you and Brian was thrilled with your thank you email ref. the grape harvest. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  6. I would have loved to come, but I guess my invitation got lost in the mail. 😦 Looks like it was great fun. Your friends look to be as lovely as you, Ralph. XX00XX πŸ™‚


    • Hi Elizabeth πŸ˜€
      I would have sent the invitation by snail mail. It may have got squished….if I sent one to you that is …..which I would have done if I knew the postal address of your creek πŸ˜‰
      Oh you are so sweet with your final words …..ummm ….what are you after ??? Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • Hi Claire πŸ˜€ I am sure you would have been there with Chloe πŸ˜€ Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • Hi Celeste πŸ˜€ Those Go-Go photos are $5 each…….see you later behind the bike shed……. bring a wheelbarrow as I have loads πŸ˜‰ hehe. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  7. You had a what…A PARTY??? and I was not invited. I’M SULKING…. and also why is it only for the chosen few??? LOL hope you enjoyed the party. Have a lovely day!


    • Good evening Liz πŸ˜€
      Yes. I admit it. Under extreme duress may I say !! A party only for the chosen few. Oh heck, I’m in big trouble now for not inviting you and many others. I’ve been a bad, bad boy πŸ˜‰
      Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  8. From what I see you have a great group of nice people who always show up on birthday parties. I like that you have such an entertaining social life! You all seem to be real fun!


    • Good evening my friend πŸ˜€
      I am really blessed to have such good friends and many more could not make the party. I hope your social life is fantastic as well Julita πŸ˜€ Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • Hi Heila πŸ˜€
      Being a mere male I am going to be confused by your “Yessss!”. Is this a “yes” that means “no” OR a “yes, if you buy me a solid gold Ferrari” OR “yes” at this second but “no” thereafter OR you would have come to the party ? πŸ˜‰ hehe. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • Wow, you’re more complicated than a woman… LOL! If you’d live around the corner I would have definitely bothered you on the night of your party… I do not care for expensive cars and even less for men who drive them. πŸ˜‰


      • πŸ˜† More complicated than a woman ?? Not really πŸ˜€
        That’s good news about the cars. I have stopped driving for about a year as my feet hurt pressing the brake pedal and gave my car away to my original apartment cleaner. Must be late for you, so good night πŸ˜€ xox


  9. I would have loved to attend – if I had received an invite (hint, hint); actually my budget would have stopped me. Hope everyone had a great time.


  10. Yes! I have a November birthday (I turned 58!!) so that would have been fun to have some refreshments and I would have brought a cake or another treat to share! Thanks for finding that youtube connection for my blog!


    • Hi Katie πŸ˜€ I hope you are taking your party hat and bubbly to work as, yes, the day will be more fun. 😎 Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • I’ll send you a new mask and I’ll pump in the champagne while you are at work Katie. 😎 xox


  11. Hey Mr. Ralph πŸ™‚
    i know i am very late to have some trifle πŸ˜€ .. but enjoyed the party pics and yeah if Mr. Jim apply some hair dye to his hairs he will look like 40 , Only his hairs tells that he is 60 now πŸ™‚ , And i love the birthday girl(Margaret) eyes , May Allah bless them with health and happiness πŸ™‚ ameen


    • Hello again Afsheen πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for your blessings. I am sure that they will be thankful for them. I think that Jim likes the colour of his hair as it makes him look distinguished πŸ˜‰ Do have a fun day. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • Well i do not know why i have this feeling that he will look so young in colored hairs :d .. convince him so that he could celebrate his 40th birthday πŸ˜€ . hehehe …


      • Okay. Next time I see Jim I will tell him what you suggest here πŸ˜€ x


  12. The bigger question is, “Would they have invited me?” They know Manny, but they don’t know me. I will come to your party instead. Manny should be home soon, MFR. He came across from Australia with Carol and Glenn’s daughter, and she is cruising right now. I’m not sure what his flight number is, though. He should be back in time for your party. πŸ™‚ Lots of love xox
