Party. One of # ?

Just over a week ago I was invited for drinks and tapas at Jim & Louise’s small cottage in the valley just outside of our village in Spain.

Please enjoy my fun captions.


This was not a party animal on the BBQ



There was light entertainment laid on



Any larger, an air water bomber would have drenched us



Well ! I was the only single man there !



No ! We are not allowed one !



I think the wine has just hit me !



I love this party animal !



I can make fire in my hand ! Look !



I’ve had so much. The wine is flowing out my ear !



I support my friends !



DO NOT remove ! The super moon was last week !



The Three Tenners !



My only purpose in life is to still support my friends !



There’s enough in these empties for another drink !



Really ?



Is that bacon I can smell ?



What have I just sat on ?



NO MORE selfies !



I lied ! I didn’t delete this photo Hilda !



I’ve recovered enough for another party Wednesday night ! Heck ! That’s tonight !

Oh, how I suffer. Life is so hard here in Spain, don’t you think ?

  1. Who’s a little party animal then???? By the way, don’t answer the door until you see if it’s Hilda carrying a weapon.

    I just noticed that Jim and Louise were responsible for Manny’s awakening!

    Have fun at the next party. ❀ oxo


    • Hi Beth πŸ˜€ Ole ! Got to get my party frock out for tonight ! Big hug. Ralph xox ❀


  2. Seems to me you have had a great time with your friends at the party. I certainly hope you have as much fun at the next. Looking forward to pictures.
    Hugs xx


    • Hi Deb πŸ˜€ Thank you my friend. It’s a shame all my blogging friends live so far away inc. you. I should have a post with photos done by the weekend. Hugs back to you Deb. Ralph xox ❀


      • It is a shame we’re all so far away from each other. I’m on the east coast of USA.
        I’ll keep my eyes opened for your new pics this weekend.
        Have a great rest of the week
        Big hug xxx β™₯

      • I agree my friend. It’s a long way across The Pond ! Hugs back ❀


  3. Seems like a very fun party. If this is a suffering that you have to endure then I am sure many are envy you now πŸ˜‰


    • Hi YC πŸ˜€ lol. I have not even got to the party yet and I’ve written half the post already ! I don’t think they will envy what I have written πŸ˜‰ Ralph


    • Hello SDHD πŸ˜€ I shall act all innocent tonight hoping that she has not read this post. Oh dear if she has ! Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Georgia πŸ˜€ Sometimes Spain gets one’s castanets clacking. Parties are those moments. Ralph xox ❀


  4. I love that picture of you Ralph, and all the ladies gathered around you….what secrets were you telling them?


      • It should be fixed now so Akismet say. I’ll comment on my next visit to you to see if it’s true. Hugs. ❀


    • Hi Pam πŸ˜€ What’s nice about living here is that we don’t party that often but when we do we have a lot of fun and catching up to do. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Ute πŸ˜€ I expect this post brought back a few memories. We all miss you as you are a wonderful lady. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


      • Yes it did indeed, seeing all your friends there I know. You lot always know how to have a great time…… just wait when I am retired…… πŸ™‚


    • Hi Resa πŸ˜€ Thank you my friend. It was fun. Hilda was the former, she has not seen this post yet ! I’m hiding just in case ! Sorry you missed the party. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  5. Ralph the Raver…..I think I passed quite close to where you live last week – Next time I’m down that way I’m definitely going to look in on you – unless of course you are out partying!! xox


    • Hi Lottie πŸ˜€ Raving Ralph more like it. Of course you would be welcome anytime. Party night is the best time to visit ! Join in the fun ! Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  6. I love your selfies. πŸ™‚ You have such a hard life. You have my deepest sympathy. πŸ˜₯ You said you were the only single man there, but the question is–How many single women were there? πŸ˜‰ ((HUGS))


    • Hello Elizabeth πŸ˜€ I really do welcome your deepest sympathy. These parties are so troublesome……..or is it me ? There were no single women at the party as there is a great lack of them around here……or are they hiding from me ? πŸ˜‰ Hugs to you my friend. Ralph xox ❀


      • They wouldn’t hide from you, my dear. Nope, no way. Next party, drop some hints that a few single ladies should be invited. Although I hate to share, I do so want you to find that perfect companion. Love and hugs. xoxox


      • That is really sweet of you to say my friend. I hate to share too, but a man has to do what a man has to do ! Hugs back for the whole weekend. ❀


  7. I’m ok not being invited to the party because I get hugs whenever I need them. I NEED A HUG TODAY!!!!!


    • Hi Dawn πŸ˜€ Hugs galore heading your way from me in southern Spain. Hope that’s aplenty for today. Have another one for luck. Ralph xox ❀


  8. Ralph, how did you arrange to be the only single guy there? I love your captions, you’ve got such a great sense of humor.


    • Hi Mary πŸ˜€ I’m not sure why I am the only single invited to these parties. Maybe the others pity me, want to look after me or fancy me πŸ˜‰ Have a lovely evening my friend. Ralph xox ❀


  9. This is great! This is a really fun, creative, and very interesting blog πŸ™‚
    I absolutely love this!


    • Hello Dawna πŸ˜€ Welcome to my blog, Bluefish Way ! Wow ! If I ever need a reference I’ll come your way. That was $10 that we agreed. Yes ? πŸ˜‰ Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  10. Way hard! I think you attend much more parties than I do. And I’m about 40 years younger than you. Or maybe it’s the other way around?


    • Hi Julita πŸ˜€ lol. The other way round ? Okay, we’ll swap πŸ˜‰ Hugs. Ralph xox I’ve given up commenting on your blog as the comments I make end up in your dashboard spam 😦


  11. Oh what fun!
    That fire on the hand trick is something else!
    Keep livin’ it up Ralph. πŸ™‚
    xx Saludos y Abrazos xx


  12. I totally can understand you,summer takes you from one party to another and life become a big party ! Very lovely photos and I’m in love with the light entertainment, the more the better πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ !
