The Letter

The Letter


 During the last visit to my pretty young Neurologist in Ronda hospital, Andalucia, Spain in May, I asked her to not make an appointment for me during the month of July as I would be on holiday in Israel. Guess what ? I have just found out that an appointment was made for me at the end of July, but I never received the letter stating the date, time and room number.


So what happened to the letter ?



Maybe my Neurologist is testing my psychic ability by not sending the letter.





Oh well ! I can dream !





… only 20 miles (30k)…….


…..from my home near Cortes de la Frontera.



I live in the town’s railway station village. The letter could have come by train…..



…….and had a scenic 40 minute rail ride from Ronda.



It could have come on the train by courier……..





…..or by other means…….




……or by snail mail. 3 months ? It should be leaving the hospital about now !



Or, just maybe, the letter was incorrectly mailed…….





…….or it had to go through hospital security first.




Maybe the letter was held up…….









…..or a new mailman just started.




It’s too late now. But where in the world…….


…..did it end up ? As junk male ?


On cloud 9 perhaps ?…….


……or on top of the world ?


……or maybe here.



The hospital doesn’t email me ! So……



……I am on the look out for the next letter……


……but in reality it will be a couple of months before I am sent another.


(All these pictures were found on Google Search and are definitely not mine and never will be.)


Have you had something happen to you that you were not aware of at the time ?

  1. No, I could not remember any of sort yet but I am sure I had some shares of those. I hope you get another slot to meet the Dr. soon 😉


    • Hi YC 😀 It’s better not to know sometimes. I hope she slots me in soon as I am losing it ! 😉 Ralph 😀


  2. Oh, yes. I mailed a letter with 4 rent checks for June thru September. Three were cashed. The check for September disappeared. Please check your mailbox.


    • Hi JF 😀 Wow ! That’s something you don’t want to hear. I hope that check turns up soon. I have looked in my mailbox. Other than a new wasp’s nest there’s nothing in there. Ralph 😀


  3. I once mailed the light bill to the gas company and vice versa. The gas company clerk was very kindly, and called for me, exchanged checks 🙂 No worse for wear!


  4. Yes. Apparently I was born, but don’t ask me for the details, OK?

    Your sense of fun and imagination knows no bounds, it seems. Keep it up. (The fun, I mean.) 🙂 oxo ❤


    • Hello Yvonne 😀 Amazing ! You were born ! Now that was a first for you my friend !
      Your wish is my command. I’ll keep it up ! Ralph xox ❤


  5. I know what you mean. I’ve had an important postal loss recently. As always, I suspect identity theft. Kisses and hugs _Resa


    • Hi Resa 😀 Oh no ! I do hope someone hasn’t stolen your identity. That’s terrible. There’s only one way to check if I am replying to the real you, that’s behind the bike sheds 😉
      Someone is really welcome to steal my medical problem and leave my identity intact. Hugs and kisses back my friend. Ralph xox ❤


  6. Laughing hysterically! I have tears in my eyes, this is just too funny!


    • HI Dawn 😀 Good ! Good ! And good ! That’s just what you need at this time. Giga-hugs. Ralph xox ❤


  7. Vince loved your Pho King picture. We have Pho King Chinese food in Visalia! If I’ve lost mail – oh right that bank card. Good reminder. Thanks Ralph. Now, what were you saying? Somebody stole your identity – just your mail – but not your femail? I don’t think anyone would want my identity! hehehe. Just don’t go postal on anyone. Take care, my friend. 🙂 Great post.


    • Hi MVBFM 😀 Really ? In Visalia ? Wow ! I was just thinking that I am glad I called my blog Bluefish Way and not Pho King Way or I would be banned from WP for life 😉
      I did have my femail/female stolen by Nigerians if you remember. Never mind. My identity is intact. Love Donald Duck xox ❤

      • Dear Don,
        Are you all you’re quacked up to be or are you just quacking me up? Those quacks who stole your femail should be swimming on my pool during duck hunting season. 🙂 Vince, the best Pho King hunter in the west, would quack that mystery and blast them into smithereens.


    • Hello sweet Amalia 😀 I’m pleased you enjoyed this post as I do yours in such a different way. Have a lovely week my friend. Ralph xox ❤

  8. Ralph, I think your letter is at the noodle house! That makes sense, doesn’t it? I hope you get it, or get another one. Cheers! xoxo


    • Hi Amy 😀 Of course it makes sense for the letter to be canoodling. Where else could it be enjoying itself 😉 I’d like another one please, hand delivered. Happy end of the week my friend. Ralph xox ❤

      • we had rain too, first in 4 months! Is it my imagination or it is already colder than this time last year? we arrived on 23rd October and it was t-shirt weather. Not feeling very warm today! xox


      • It IS definitely cooler. I was cold in bed last night. I don’t expect it will last long and will soon warm up again ! 😀

    • Hey Shey 😀 It’s best you don’t know 😉
      Are you connected to the internet yet or are you still lurking, disguised, in your local library.
      It’s your big vote day tomorrow. I suggest you vote for “Hamstahs Rule UK”, you know it makes sense !
      Hugs. Ralph xox ❤


  9. One of these days it will arrive…
    Maybe it will arrive with the info on your next appt that gets scheduled.
    And – why the heck did they schedule you for July when you specifically asked them not to? UGH!

    I believe I have things happen to me all the time that I’m not aware of. I have no specifics – as I am probably still unaware of them. 😉
    xx Saludos y Abrazos xx


    • Hi RoSy 😀

      I hope the next letter will come soon as you say. And I have an UGH ! agreement with you, she wasn’t listening !

      I do hope that you will always be unaware of those things that you are unaware of or else you will become aware of things that you were unaware of and PANIC !

      Hugs. Ralph xox ❤

    • Hi Debby 😀 I bet you were expecting my answer to be “I knew you were going to say that !” but I won’t because my psychic skills are as useful as a chocolate teapot ! 😉 I need a lot of honing ! Big hug. Ralph xox ❤

    • Hi Sheri 😀 I am pleased to hear that ! What the world needs is the sound of laughter. Big hug. Ralph xox ❤


    • Hi Louisa 😀 If they were mine you would be welcome to them, but as they are not I must stay neutral in what you wish to do with them. Happy Thursday ! Ralph xox ❤


  10. So that’s the letter I received and threw away. So sorry, guess I should have forwarded it. 😳 Too too funny. Laughed myself silly over this one, my dear, and the worst part is that it’s so true. I get tons of misdirected mail in my box every year. 😀 ❤ xoxoxo


    • Oh Elizabeth ! So you didn’t even go to my appointment and save the day 😉
      I hope your misdirected male is returned to sender. Ralph xox ❤



    • Ahoy Sir Drake ! Avast ye and heave to thy landyards. There be no finer wench on the Seven Seas to behold and she be on the morning Packet out of Liverpool disguised as a cabin boy 😉


  11. You are humorous, Ralph! I think in your way to be more easily pass situations. Congratulations for what you are!

    I liked the style in which you approached, the discomfort, when the letter has not arrived. Very nice your choices.
    Have a wonderful Sunday, Ralph and only joy! Regards, Stefania. 🙂


    • You are so sweet. Thank you Ştefania. Joy and happiness to you my friend. Ralph xox ❤


  12. Ralph, I currently walk around unaware at least half the time. Around twenty five years ago I went to my manager for my yearly review. I found out I had received a promotion (in name only with no increase in pay) six months earlier. They forgot to tell me!


    • Hi Mary 😀 Oh no ! No pay increase ! What a dastardly thing to do to you. Did you rise to the rank as unpaid Admiral in the end ? 😉 Ralph xox ❤


  13. So hilarious all these lovely illustrations !! But I’m displeased for you now you’ve to wait again, hoping you’ll receive the next post……………………………..:) 🙂


    • Hi Serach 😀 I hope so too as I was dizzy this weekend, but I am okay now. Have a lovely week ahead. Ralph xox ❤
