RV2. The Factory.

This second video is giving the illusion of Hilda inserting items into the 17 green envelopes. As I was “injured” during the making of this video, my official stunt double, Dunt Stubble, stood in for me. Those of you with a nervous disposition (like me) please look away when watching this video. It’s quite long and I have learned NOT to stand in front of the camera and NOT learned how to cut a clip. Enjoy !!



David , (Hilda’s husband)drove me up to Cortes de la Frontera Correos (post office) this morning and the green envelopes are “speedily” on their way to 17 of you as I speak.



Some of you in my last post asked to see Samantha. She refuses to be videoed, so I hope that this slideshow will be a small consolation.

Have you ever worked in a factory like Hilda’s home ??

  1. It was a very nice day you and Hilda had there. Those are gifts are lovely too! Everyone is going to be delighted.

    Thank you showing the picture of Samantha πŸ™‚


    • Hi YC πŸ˜€
      Yes. It was a lovely day, but had to go indoors when the wind got too strong to finish the last two envelopes. Samantha is quite camera shy, but I’ll turn her into a diva one day. Thanks for commenting. You are one of the best. Ralph πŸ˜€


  2. Aww, Ralph, how sweet and generous of you! Another great video! Your captions made me literally laugh out loud. I was delighted to see you both enjoying the beautiful weather and working together, as well as hearing the rooster crowing in the background. Keep making more videos! xoxo, René ❀


    • Hello Rene πŸ˜€ We did enjoy the afternoon and Hilda is a gem as she helps me such a lot. Have a lovely day my friend. Ralph xox ❀


  3. you are a natural videographer, another great one ralph. and i can’t believe the sweat shop you have hilda working in! we are going to have to rescue her from those grueling conditions. i agree with rene, don’t stop making videos ) b


    • Hi Beth πŸ˜€ Wow. Such a compliment !! Thank you so much. Oh yes !! With me around there is no slacking from Hilda πŸ˜‰ I will make more videos as I need the practice for my holiday. Big hug. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Mirna πŸ˜€ Got any suggestions of what you would like to see next time? Ralph xox ❀


      • yes…your place….it seems be magic Ralph and the cat all around you….show us….Kisses my friend and waiting for the new video…Ah! Dont forget the view….


      • Wow..Okay !! You have given me some ideas for videoing the cats. I’ll wait for a sunny day for the views as it’s forecast rain all weekend here. Loads of kisses back Mirna ❀ xox


  4. Oh, Ralphie, you are one in a million! What a generous person you are. (How much did you have to pay Hilda and that handsome Dunt?)

    Samantha is lovely, tabby cats rule the world! (I just discovered that Minx, another tabby, loves baked beans. I’ll never have to buy cat food again. Evviva.)

    Big hugs to you, Hilda, Dunt and the cats. xxxxx ❀


    • Hello again Yvonne πŸ˜€
      Hilda and Dunt don’t get paid as I just feed them bread and water, and, when finished, they are led back to the dungeons ……… in-house accommodation FREE !! How generous is that ?? πŸ˜‰
      Baked beans ?? Must be the salt in them I expect. My two have prawns/shrimps for a treat every so often. They only like their normal brands of food usually.
      I hope you are settled in back home. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  5. Ah, your Samantha looks an awful lot like my little Miss Felix (we thought she was a boy).


    • Hi Georgia πŸ˜€ Poor Miss Felix !! She must have psychological gender problems after being called a boy πŸ˜‰ hehe. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Tazien πŸ˜€ Is that WP smiley a smile or a wink ? I think this post deserves a wink πŸ˜‰ hehe. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Lottie πŸ˜€ I’m so glad that you love the videos. Hopefully they will improve over time. Hopefully “I” will improve over time !! πŸ˜‰
      I hope you are getting settled and not finding life too hard in Spain. Hugs back. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Loving πŸ˜€ Yes. A lot of fun to do. As I am learning all about the camera and editor I am sure the quality will improve over time. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


      • Keep it up. It keeps us entertained. I think I may do the video thing some time in the future. I love learning how to do new things. See you soon! πŸ™‚


  6. The Panasonic Lumix seems to be a good brand. I’ve got an underwater camera from them that has been snorkeling in salt water many times and even in a mineral water cave once and still works as well as the day I got it, though it is now several years old.


    • Hi LB πŸ˜€ You take some wonderful photographs and videos especially the one drifting down the river. I really enjoyed that one. I have a lot of work to do to get my work up to your standard. Big hug. Ralph xox ❀


  7. Lookin’ quite spiffy Ralph!
    You sure have star quality.
    You always have a natural flowing way of keeping things interesting & entertaining.
    I can so see you having some sort of reality show.
    And – I would definitely watch it! πŸ™‚

    So nice of Hilda to help you out there. What a lovely day it looks like it was too. A nice place to sit out there on such a lovely day.

    xx Saludos y Abrazos xx


    • Hi RoSy πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much my friend for your kind words. Appreciated !!
      Reality show ?? Now that’s an idea !! Something like “Real (huh !!) Wives Of LA” !! No, that’s no good as I will need a few wives !! πŸ˜‰
      Yes. Hilda is a great help to me and her house on top of the little hill has a lovely view.
      Love and hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  8. I hope Hilda can make it to Hollywood with you when you start your new film project. 8)8)


    • Hi Katie πŸ˜€ Hollywood ?? No, definitely not !! It’ll have to be Miami then I can see you πŸ˜€ Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  9. I love the sounds in the background – seems like a very beautiful peaceful place you live in! Looking forward to receiving my envelope. πŸ™‚


    • Hello HD πŸ˜€ Lovely, isn’t it ?
      Your envelope is on it’s way. The mule should be out of the village by now πŸ˜‰ hehe.
      Hugs my friend. Ralph xox ❀


  10. Lovely to see Hilda here, as most valuable help for you. And the beautiful sunshine, So lovely ! Wished I was there!


    • Hi Ute πŸ˜€ Yes, Hilda is such a sweetie to help the way she does. Actually, that day was gorgeous, but this weekend it’s bucketing it down with rain…….that would make you feel at home !! πŸ˜‰ hehe. Big hugs. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Julie πŸ˜€ LOL Dunt is such a diva !! Have a lovely weekend my friend. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Drake πŸ˜€ Thank you my friend !!
      “Very well done” ??? Would you like it medium rare next time ? πŸ˜‰ Ralph πŸ˜€


  11. I’ve enjoyed to watch the video and all the day because I had not even see your post I was Happy so πŸ™‚ Happy that I repeat it several times how sweet and kind you have been to send this gift to me and other 16 !!! Your Assistant, dear Hilda is a very kind and helpfully woman, do send her my greetings and she did a great job πŸ™‚ ! You are a very gentle and generous man and you will hear from me, by the way how glad you was (in the video) when you was back at home ! Love to hear from you at the telephone today and I hope I didn’t disturb you but I had to thank you by phone ! Wish you a great weekend and thanks for that beautiful scarf, SΓ©rachShiro πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ ! ❀


    • Hello Shiro πŸ˜€
      I also had two wonderful surprises today. The first was to hear that the green envelope only took 2 days to arrive at your home from Southern Spain. And the second was to pick up the phone and to listen to your lovely voice. What a wonderful shock it was to talk to you. I never thought in a thousand years that I would ever talk to you, just comment. πŸ˜€
      It was a great pleasure to send you a little something in thanks for playing along with the Valentine Cards. I asked Hilda to shop for me while she was out (she loves shopping !!) and got the scarves. I would have probably sent everyone a cement mixer !! LOL hehe.
      No. You didn’t disturb me. It was a fantastic phone call. Thank you again for calling. Made my day !!
      My love and hugs to you, your family and Facebook !!
      Love and hugs. Ralph xox ❀ ❀


      • For me it was the same and it was a GREAT pleasure to hear you live on the telephone ) ! Say to the lovely Hilda that I have already worn that gorgeous scarf and that she made a perfect choice !! Hahaha a cement mixer Maybe I can use…..you never know πŸ™‚ ! You certainly make my day too, all the day I was thinking how I was lucky to have a kind and sympathetic friend as you ! Have a very nice evening Ralph and see you πŸ™‚ ❀


      • I will tell Hilda what you have said. I am sure she will be thrilled to hear what you have to say. You are sweet. ❀ xox


      • Hahaha…….thanks Ralph, do tell her and I wish you a very Happy new week πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ ! ❀


  12. Absolutely wonderful … all of it; the gorgeous scenery, beautiful sunshine … the generous idea of yours! My friend I do have to say this – your own reality show with international audience is just around the corner. Here in Hobbiton we do have some amazing technology as seen in the movie with the same name … Just saying -:)!


    • Hello Daniela πŸ˜€ Thank you. There is a green envelope on it’s way to you as well my friend. Ralph xox ❀


      • Oh my dear, dear friend … I am touched and intrigued all in a same time! I love surprises! Thank you so much -:)!



  13. What wonderful friends you have in Hilda and David… you are indeed a lucky man, and you will make 17 lovely women very happy indeed…! πŸ˜‰
    Samantha is gorgeous, Ralph; as was your wonderful video…
    Lots of hugs and kisses..


    • Hello Carolyn πŸ˜€ Oh, you are so sweet and kind which deserves an extra ❀ . I do hope that you are having a lovely weekend my bestest friend. Ralph xoxox ❀ ❀


  14. What a lovely video watching the beautiful landscape and surroundings of the country. You are delightful and so were your captions. Your compassion to endeavour in the project was a lovely gesture. Editing is something we all need to master, it’s not easy. πŸ™‚ xo


  15. You’re such a sweet man! I hope you’ll get better any time now!!!

    As for Hilda, she seems a very nice woman. I believe she must have a great heart like you.

    Wish you both a lovely week in the southern Spanish sun!


    • Hi Julita πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for saying such nice things about Hilda and myself.
      May I wish you a lovely week wherever you are this week.
      Ralph xox ❀


  16. MFR, You have really outdone yourself in RV2 and in the lovely packages. I am so honored and humbled to have received mine today. Tell Hilda thank you so much, too. She has such a sweet personality. You both had a nice visit, and it was relaxing and fun to listen in. I could feel the warm sunshine and the cool breeze. Thanks again, sweet Ralph. xox RVBFM PS. I think your VVVBF is definitely Hilda.


    • Hi MVBFM πŸ˜€ I am so pleased that your green envelope has arrived. You are very welcome as it’s just a little thank you for participating in the cards and stamps I asked for. Hilda worked really hard throughout the whole process, but enjoyed it.
      You must be on your travels now. Have a great time. Ralph xox ❀


      • Hi Ralph,
        I arrived in Boston at 11:00 p.m. EST. I just finished a post, and it is 1:43 a.m., so I’m going to bed. Have a wonderful week, MFR. Lots of love to you, and thanks again. I love my present, the thought that went into it, and the lovely video that explained the process. Priceless! πŸ™‚ xox Marsha


      • Have a lovely time in Boston. I can feel that you are so much nearer πŸ˜‰
        I told Hilda what you said and she is thrilled with all the feedback.
        Ralph xox ❀


  17. You are really good at this videotaping! I had to chuckle once again at your situations and fun that you add to everyone’s day! I like that you are so nice to Hilda and she to you. It all works well, especially makes interesting stories! I liked the photo of the donkey carting stuff, too! Smiles, Robin


    • Hi Robin πŸ˜€
      Oh, you are so sweet with this comment. Thank you so much. Smiles back. Ralph xox ❀


  18. Absolutely fabulous! And no, I’ve never had the pleasure of working in a factory like that. Love and hugs to both of you, you darling man. πŸ™‚


    • Hello Elizabeth πŸ˜€ Such a sweet comment !! Yes.It’s a lovely factory, but the pay is poor for the long hours put in πŸ˜‰
      Love Ralph xoxox ❀
