I’ve Been A Naughty Boy !!


Santa (Einar) sleighed into Estacion Cortes de la Frontera, Spain, this afternoon



He handed out presents to the local children





And then came my turn.

I sat on his knee.


It was then he hit me with a bombshell.


Moi !! Never !!


Do you think that I’ve been a naughty boy this year ??


I would like to add.

Whatever your circumstances.

Whatever country you live in.

Whatever political, religious or colour you are.

Please be kind to each other from now to the End of Days.


A very, very Merry Christmas

And a happy, happy New Year to you, my friends.

With all our love, blessings and hugs

Ralph, Samantha and Sonic (my cats)Β  πŸ™‚

    • Hello Len !! πŸ˜€ I never realised that you had a problem. WP does throw wobblies sometimes. It’s lovely to read your comment and a very merry Christmas to you as well. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  2. Definition of naughty: fun loving, adorable, sits on Santa’s lap, makes his friends smile, party hardy, loves life, and reminds us to be kind to each other. Yeah, by that definition, you’re naughty. Wishing you lots of good cheer, good health, many many more good days and restful nights. Big cyber hug, Paulette


    • Hi Paulette πŸ˜€
      What are you doing to me ? My image is ruined as you are turning me into a Saint πŸ˜‰ May I return those lovely wishes to you as you deserve them. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  3. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy year. How nice from Einar to do this, I am sure the children loved it.What a kind thing to do!


    • Hello my friend πŸ˜€ I hope you have a Zzzzz Christmas and lots of time to relax and chill out.
      The Ferrari ….. oops…..package hasn’t arrived yet, I’m sure it will arrive soon πŸ˜€
      Einar has been quite busy as Santa. He met a few trains at the station and waved to the passengers and has/is visit/ed/ing a couple of other villages. I have a lot of respect for him to go out of his way like that. Have a lovely weekend. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • Haha πŸ˜† Hi Sylvia πŸ˜€ I hope you have your stockings hanging on your hammock for Santa, he might wear them πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox πŸ˜€

    • Hi Katie πŸ˜€ A very merry Christmas to you my friend. At least you sent me a yule-tide log instead of a lump of coal. The postage must have been a month’s wages πŸ˜‰ Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  11. Hmm…at least Santa allows you to sit on his lap, my friend!

    Take care, be well so that you can enjoy this festive holiday coming ahead!!

    Cheers!! πŸ˜€


    • Yep !! That’s it Wendy. 10 seconds on Santa’s knee but no present. I don’t believe in Santa any more πŸ˜₯
      Have a lovely holiday, let the spirit flow …..and the wine…..and the hot toddy. Hugs. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • Yes, my friend…Let it flow, let it flow, let it flowwww…..

        Happy Monday and cheers!! πŸ˜€


  12. “10 seconds on Santa’s knee but no present. I don’t believe in Santa any more…” Ha ha, you’re so naughtily hilarious Ralph. Wish you a happy Christmas. We don’t celebrate Christmas here in Israel but part of my family in Germany does…. most important is, as you say, to be kind to each other. And enjoy the Ferrari. πŸ˜‰


    • Hi Heila my dear friend πŸ˜€ What a lovely comment. Thank you so much. πŸ˜€
      I am sure that you have plenty of great holidays in Israel to enjoy. When I was in the Army in Hongkong I’m surprised that we had any work days at all as we celebrated Gurkha, British and Chinese holidays.
      Oh, I don’t think a Ferrari will turn up on my doorstep. *looking out of the window* Just checking πŸ˜‰
      If you ever need a bit of kindness to head your way, let me know Heila. Okay ?
      Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


    • Hi Willow πŸ˜€ I know !! I am really upset πŸ˜‰ hehe. Merry Christmas to you my friend. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  13. You? Naughty? He must have mixed you up with some other 6’5″ Englishman in the neighborhood. You’re far too sweet! Merry Christmas, MFR.


  14. A Merry Christmas, Ralph and a joyful 2014 to you and yours!!
    Warmest wishes from Stefania! πŸ™‚


    • Thank you my dear friend. It’s raining hard here in Spain. So I have lit the log burner to have a nice warm Christmas.
      Happy Christmas Stefania and a wonderful New Year which will get so much better for you as each day passes through 2014. Big hug. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  15. Hola Ralph!
    Hope that you & your kitty cats had a wonderful Christmas!
    Sorry that you didn’t get any gift from Santa that day.
    But – did he stop by for Christmas?
    xx Saludos y Abrazos xx


    • Hello RoSy πŸ˜€ Yes thank you !! We all curled up around the log burner and watched some TV between ZzzzZzzz’s πŸ˜‰ hehe. My friends gave me small items but nothing from Santa πŸ˜₯ Did Santa visit, or were you a naughty girl ? πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox πŸ˜€


  16. My dear fellow, that fine photograph of you with the ol’ Clause is, well, rather epic. Fantastic. A beautiful post! I am enjoying my holiday cursitating about these lovely posts, catching up on some Christmasy cheer via your scintillating bloggy reflections. Marvelous, and thank you for lighting up me day like a string of dazzling fairy lights πŸ˜‰ Buglicious smiles,

    -wee smiling toadie


    • Happy New Year Autumn Jade πŸ˜€ Well, tonight’s the night to ring out the old and in with the new. I hope that you & Sir’s 2014 will be brilliant. With love from your little fairy light. Ralph xox πŸ˜€


      • Thank you so much matie, and with the warm glow of your dazzling fairy light shimmering through, 2014’s nascent could not be a photon better. (Does this make any sense?? No…maybe? Eh, not really, so to translate-) Much LOVE, many hugs, and jubilant thanks, and NO I’m not going to slide any further on this threateningly mawkish and abominably maudlin slope I seem to be skittering down just now, oh dear,

        CHEERS! πŸ˜€

        Sir and Autty Jade


      • Good golly and BLAST did I really just type that??? Not a photon better??? YUK. I don’t know what has happened. I’m turning into some kind of ol’ grannie sap person, how terrible and nefarious. So sorry you had to see that…I think I was just a bit blinded by all the Santy red, or just a bit lost in the great expanse of cosmos that seem to surround your blog- yes yes, there, excuse filed. πŸ˜‰ Much better.


      • I didn’t notice a thing AJ πŸ˜€ So long as you are enjoying yourself that’s fine with me. xox
