I was really excited to receive all your different cards and messages. I had great fun opening your cards and e-cards. Some of you have gone to great lengths in sending these to me. Others with special poems and words which I loved to read. Even your comments in previous posts have been fantastic. Pedro will be thrilled with the variety of stamps and I am thrilled with your generosity and your beautiful cards. Thank you so much.
(I have linked all the Avatars to your blogs)
Please enjoy everything you have sent me. I love you all. Ralph xox 🙂
Fantastic !! Thank you so much dear Pelly. Kisses. Ralph xxxx 🙂
Thank you for all the work you put into this Drake and for your Sister’s kiss. If she wants to visit, please ask her to wear this outfit. hehe. A kiss back to her. Ralph x

Wow. Thank you so much my huggable friend. I will make sure that this post is finished by lunchtime on the 13th as Valentine’s Day will be starting in Australia then. Midnight ! Love your e-card, Carolyn. Ralph xxxx 🙂
Your e-card was so unexpected Debby even though you said you were going to do something. It’s wonderful. Thank you so much. Ralph xxxxxx
😆 So funny ! You and Cupid are really having fun, Beth !! Thank you so much for your great card. Love Ralph xoox
Celeste, it’s got to be you !! I do hope so or I may have to grovel a lot to the other blogger. Just like I do to you 😉 Big hugs. Ralph xxxoooxxx
Haha !! You owned up !! I read your comment below !! Thanks for the card Celeste. Loved it !! xoxox
I really looked forward this morning in opening your two, yes, two cards full of stamps as well as these lovely cards Gallivanta, and you had not let me down. So many stamps for Pedro ,the village policeman who collects stamps, who will be over the moon with what you have sent !! I will wait a few more days before sending them on as there may be late comers to this party. Of course I will be your Valentine, my friend. Love, with thanks. Ralph xxooxxoo
Now that’s what I call a Valentine’s card HD. Self portrait ? Just asking 😉 I wonder where this card will be placed ? Thank you so much my good friend. Love Ralph xoxox
Thank you so much for your massive card MVBFM. Yes, massive !! 1 +1/2 the size of my scanner. Not having a panorama tool I had to use “print/scan” and paste into Paint. This was the best I could do after many tries. But even so, your card is so different and welcome with Ute‘s stamp. Big hugs. Ralph xoxox 🙂
Hi Mary !! I never, ever expected a card from you my friend. I had no idea who had send me the card. The envelope said New York. I was stumped until I opened it this morning, 12th Feb 2014, and lo and behold it was from you Mary. I am overwhelmed that you sent me this card and I thank you so, so much my friend. Love and hugs. Ralph xxxoooxxx
When I opened this card, dear Secret Admirer, all sorts of thoughts flooded in. Is it from a Spanish lady…… flamingo = almost flamenco. Or maybe Sculley FBI….they’re secret !! Possibly from my recent spammer ? 😉 I still have no idea who you are, but no matter, your card is beautiful and your words are exquisite. Thank you so much. Big hugs (even if you are a man 😉 hehe ) Ralph xoxoxox
Oooh Abby !! You are such a teaser, but for a Secret Admirer I could not ask for better !! Thanks for owning up as the mysterious Someone in the 3 comments (below) you made. Love you !! Ralph xoxoxox
Wow, RoSy, I am really impressed with your home-made card. Such a lot of work you must have done to create this fun Valentine’s card. I really love it my sweet friend and thank you for your lovely words. Lots of love. Ralph oooxxxooo
Hey Serach the poet !! What wonderful kind words. Thank you so much my friend. My face must look like the front of your card after reading your poem 🙂 Lots of love. Ralph xoxoxox
Well Yvonne it must have been weeks that your card has been on my shelf, as yours was the first postal one to arrive. And now it’s opened. Yippee !! The first thing I noticed was the kiss on the envelope. You were the only one, so that’s special. What else was special was your card is 3D. Shame that doesn’t show up in scanning it. When I first saw the “Bset” I thought…..ah ha, Yvonne has sent me a spam card 😉 …. but I suppose “Bset” is about right for me. hehe. Thank you so much for sending it and your travels on the water bus etc. to get it to me. My love and hugs. Ralph xxxoooxxx 🙂
Yvonne’s niece Alida and the little boy Jack.
Thank you so much Alida for sending this card all the way from Canada. I really do appreciate it. Happy Valentine’s day as you’re not a blogger…..or are you ?
Hi Jack. I have a treat for you. Watch this:
(Just in case the postman was late)
Thank you so much Aquileana for this lovely e-card and it’s still Valentine’s Day !! Big hugs. Ralph xox 🙂
And I know of 3 more cards to come yet !! Brilliant !!
Whew ! Finished ! It’s amazing how many fiddly bits to do to construct two posts which took me two days. But do you know what ? It was worth every minute, because of you my friends. You were game and came up with the goods. 6 e-cards and 12 postal cards. So much more than I ever expected. All of you, who just read my posts. All of you, who like or comment. To me, you are all gems. I class you as good friends who I’ll never forget. I may be alone physically on Valentine’s Day, but I am never, ever alone with you dear ones.
Ralph xox 🙂
