Christmas Decorations, Pregnancy And A Bombshell

Christmas Decorations


I am not posting as much as I like as there is so much going on in my real world such as the installation of my new roof top rocket……



……and medical issues. Yesterday I had to go to Ronda Hospital, an hour’s drive. We saw some lovely things on the way such as potholes…….


…..and more potholes……


…..with the locals obeying the signs.


Eventually I arrived in the waiting room and saw some strange characters there…..


…..who were doing…….


…..or had done normal things for Spain.



I was in the waiting room, waiting (that’s what you do in a waiting room. Flippin’ waiting !!) waiting to go on the doughnut machine…..


……because a previous scan had shown up Christmas tree decorations in my sinuses. This is an actual picture of inside my sinuses.


Three minutes inside the machine…….


and the deed was done !


On Monday I have a four hour round trip to Malaga hospital because I don’t want to do this………


….. so I’m going to see an eye doctor…..


…….who is going to put me through gruelling vision tests such as………









Toni, my neighbour, cleaner, cook and laundry lady, is pregnant……..


………and is quite upset about it…….


…… she caught a virus a few weeks ago and was given a strong course of antibiotics which stopped her contraceptive Pill from working.Β  That’s another modern pharmaceutical miracle at its best !! Huh!





In about a month’s time I will be making

Breaking news

So stay tuned !!


Meanwhile I’m off to look at this lovely new car. I am rather upset because some idiot wrote white numbers all over the wind shield……..


…….and then I’ll go and have a Spanish doughnut.


Damn it !! It’s closed…….um… ?



Has your week been as boring as mine ??

    • Hello Beth πŸ˜€ Ralphworld ! I like that !! I should have called my blog that, if I thought of it ! Never mind. Would you like to share my next appointment with me ? πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox ❀


  1. Ralphworld describes this mad place perfectly, ksbeth! And, don’t we love hearing about it? Oh, hi, Ralph, how’s tricks? O:) (That’s s’posed to be an angel, let’s see if WP does the right tthing.) Hugs and other stuff from Down Under. oxo ❀


    • Hi Yvonne πŸ˜€ WP doesn’t do Angel emocions. Ivy posted these new WP smileys a while ago. Right click. “Save Image as….” and put them somewhere safe. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Mirna πŸ˜€ I missed you too my friend. Thanks for the kisses. Ralph xox ❀ ❀


  2. Dang, potholes!!! Hope you are well and that the tests come back the way that makes it easiest to improve and move forward. Hugs. 8)


    • Hi Katie πŸ˜€ Yes, dang potholes !

      It’s a shame you haven’t a blog “Real,Man’s Health” as you would have either mended me months ago or I would have taken up fishing in potholes as medication πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Annie πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for your lovely comment……..I think !! πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox ❀


  3. So, this may be the same comment coming in twice…but WP will not defeat me. 8)
    Hope you are well. Hope the tests come back the way you want. Hope you don’t fall into a pothole. Hugs 8)


    • Hi Katie 2….The sequel ! πŸ™‚ No you were not defeated by WP. You are probably having the same problems as me with WP when posting a comment or trying to move to the next post on a blog. I have found that double clicking unseizes a locked comment etc. So I double click all the time now. I’m watching out for potholes…….Aaargh ! Too late ! Ralph xox ❀


      • Thanks for the tip!
        Can you hear me down there? I’ll get a rope to toss so you can climb out…oops. Guess I should have tied off one end. 8)


      • What a relief !! Thank you Katie. Ooops ! Silly you ! It’s lucky I know how to perform the Indian Rope Trick ! Oh. Slight problem ! No flute ! Can you throw one down ? If you haven’t got one, a piano will do……..second thoughts……um !!


    • Hello Debby πŸ˜€ I am so pleased that you enjoyed this post. That is you, yes ? I must go for an eye test πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox ❀


      • Whew. I’m glad I was not in error or I would have been in big trouble………which is normal for me πŸ˜‰ Love from Cutie ❀


  4. LOL Ralph! Oh my you made me laughing really hard this Sunday morning – almost spill my tea :)) How exciting week you had!
    Hope you are feeling better now – then you don’t have to see a lady-dog and driving through potholes! Take care Ralph, wishing you a relax Sunday..


    • Hello Indah πŸ˜€ We had some fun with this post, didn’t we ? I’m glad you didn’t spill your tea ! It’s been a lovely Sunday and I hope yours is a good one too. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi YC πŸ˜€ Yes, the dog woman was very friendly. She constantly wagged her tail, licked my hand and tried to climb on my leg. Such a sweet thing ! πŸ˜‰ Ralph πŸ˜€

    • Hello Ştefania πŸ˜€ Thank you so much my friend. I wish you a Sunday of fun and pleasantries. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Wendy πŸ˜€ The worst wait was in Victoria hospital just outside Malaga (where I am going tomorrow…..aargh !) I got there and found 5 people had the same appointment time for the same doctor. I waited 3 hours before being seen !
      I hope you have never had to wait too long. Ralph xox ❀


      • Yes, I have done the waiting, it is bad here in Jimena. Best to take a book, sandwiches, plenty of water….good luck tomorrow x


      • Thanks Wendy. It went better than I thought. I got there early and was seen EARLY !! Amazing !! The only down side was wearing a cap with electrodes and holes in it, in which she squeezed gel through my hair which solidified in the heat on the way home. My hair has been washed but now has a gel sheen to it. πŸ™‚


    • Hey Shey πŸ˜€ ! Me protest ? Never !! No, that WIS a quiet week for me. Hugs from your action man πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Elizabeth πŸ˜€ That’s true. I AM interested in everything ! So, what are you wearing ? lol Ralph xoxox ❀ πŸ˜€


  5. Hi Ralph, The most interesting thing in my life this week is that I can’t post comments on Bluefish way through my wordpress account. You are way less boring than I am! πŸ™‚


  6. Grand humor as always! Love the photos. Really like the space rocket chimney of yours, being part of the US space launch program! Here in FL few chimneys abound.

    Best eyechart I have seen, and have seen many over the yrs, sigh. Hope your eye issue is resolved to avoid potholes, seem to be a lot of them around.


    • Hi Steve πŸ˜€ Thanks for your great comment. I needed that. Yes, a brilliant eyechart !! Didn’t see it today though 😦 I do hope you and AJ are fine and I wish you both well. Ralph πŸ˜€


    • Hello Sheri πŸ˜€ I love your double dose of kisses. What can I talk about after those ? From your normally extreme boring friend a multitude of xoxox’s Ralph xox ❀


  7. Hola Ralph!
    My week has been eventful. But – yours sounds like it was more exciting.
    Hope all went well with your medical visits.
    By the way – the insides of your sinuses are very pretty. πŸ˜‰

    An – OH NO – baby. I have one of those. LOL
    I love her to pieces. πŸ˜€

    xx Saludos y Abrazos xx


    • Hello RoSy πŸ˜€ Oh. All of me is very pretty my friend. I am so glad that you have one of those…..(what is she talking about ? Keep amusing her !)………… I am sure you do love her. Big hug. Ralph xox ❀


  8. I have to ask if you are the dad Ralph? Don’t doctors recommend extra precautions if one is on anti-biotics?


      • Thanks Sandra. Toni has been my cleaner etc. for nearly 2 years now and has a lovely helpful family and even though I had thought about it, I didn’t try it on with her even if she offered it on a plate, which she never did. I’d rather keep my home help than lose her for a few hours of pleasure. ❀


      • You really thought the worst of me didn’t you Sandra ? I may have to try to be a bad boy sometime as it may increase my blog cred. Have a lovely Sunday my friend. ❀


  9. Congratulations on making “Breaking News” in about a month’s time!
    Looking froward! Resa xo


    • Hi Resa πŸ˜€ Ah ha ! Is the breaking news congratulatory or maybe something else ? Time will tell !! Got to keep you guessing πŸ˜€ Ralph xxox ❀


  10. Wow. I thought we had potholes and problems with proper rifle placement while sitting. I was wrong. πŸ˜‰
    One thing though.

    Can I get my black camaro back? My insurance guy is making noises about the circumstances surrounding the wreck.

    I told him wrecked it when my high heel got stuck on the gas pedal, because if I’d told him the truth, he’d never believe me anyway. But how many times in your life do you get to see a giant escaped donut rolling down the street, right?

    So I got distracted…big deal. πŸ˜‰


  11. Hi CeeLee πŸ˜€ I was going to post a video of driving in high heels but I thought better of it as I might get excited. Getting the blue car out of the car park is fun to watch. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Michael πŸ˜€ Thank you so much. I hope you are having a great day. Ralph πŸ˜€


    • Hi SDHD πŸ˜€ I agree. There are so many fun photos around and the one you mention is very funny. Big hug. Ralph xox ❀


  12. Ooh Ralph, such a great post and all these marvellous pictures made me laughing a lot ! I’m sorry that you always have to go in hospital for these terrible check-up/visits but I’m so happy that you are always the same man like I know, positive and keeps me always smiling(and shaking with my head)……a big hug and kisses from SΓ©rach πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ !


    • Hello my friend πŸ˜€

      I am so pleased that you enjoyed this post. I had fun drafting it !

      It’s all test, tests and more tests at the moment. The next one is on the 12th June. I just want to be cured that’s all. Maybe one day it will happen.

      I hope you are having a lovely week Serach. Ralph xox ❀


      • Thank you so much and It would be wonderful for you if the could find it and make you better !! Wish you a very pleasant week full of lovely things, kisses SΓ©rach Xxx


  13. Ralph, I just love your posts. Your photos and captions are the best! I certainly hope all this talk of doctors and hospitals doesn’t mean there is trouble. I hope all is well for you.


    • Hi Mary πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for your praise. Love it, ! Female doctors and nurses always mean trouble for me πŸ˜‰ lol. Ralph xox ❀


  14. So strange that some women greet a positive pregnancy test with anger while some of us are half-killing ourselves trying to get the same result.


    • Hi Rachel πŸ˜€ I am so sorry to hear of you being unable to have children. Maybe soon, yes ? My neighbours aren’t angry. They are walking around in a daze, as it was an unexpected shock for them. Ralph xox ❀
