gold blog

WendyWendy triggered the idea for this post in her fiction story.


Some of you may remember the post of mine when I had some blogging shirts made up for my holiday in Israel.


While in the hotel room bathroom I noticed something unusual.

No ! I wasn’t taking selfies or having my own personal wet t-shirt competition !

The word “blog” ……….


…… changed to “gold” in the mirror.


It did !


Try it yourself !


What I would like to do is to give you all a gold present.

“Give it to me Ralph ! I want it NOW !”

Not this……….


…… or this ! …….


……or even this !


“Shucks Ralph ! I’m pressing Like and I’m gone !”

So there’s no chance of you being a gold digger






And I didn’t go prospecting for it !




I won’t be giving you one of these little fellows ……..



“Oooh !”


……. and definitely not one of these guys ……..




“Why not ?”


……. or gal ……



I didn’t find the gold present at the end of a rainbow








“For heaven’s sake Ralph ! What is it ?”


I’m not giving you this ……. well, it could be if you are nice to me πŸ˜‰


“Yes please Ralph !”

It’s definitely not clothes …….


……. or something I cooked up ! (They are actually Christmas tree baubles ! Not on the woman with the goldfish !)…….


…… and I definitely didn’t rob the tooth fairy !



“So what is it Raaaaalph ?”





Well, you know I don’t accept awards …….. except maybe a real one like this !


….. and my gold present to you is NOT an award. It is a gift from me to you. Our secret. It’s for your sidebar as you and your blogs are so special to me. Take it with my love. ❀

Right click on the gif/Save image as …

and place it in an “Image” widget on your sidebar like you normally do.


or take this plain one.



“Is that it ? No ring ? No gold bar? I’m outta here !”


I don’t suppose there is any reader left to read this ! Maybe just you in your dressing gown munching cereals out of its box or another you totally bored out of your mind at work.

Is there anybody there ?

  1. Wow. Mind=blown. That’s kind of awesome that you made that discovery. πŸ™‚


    • Hi Not πŸ˜€ I have some super glue left after sticking back my blown mind when I saw gold in the mirror. You can borrow it if you like. Ralph xox ❀


  2. You keep coming up with yet another creative, even deviant post! I just about break my neck when I see there is a new post from Ralphie. The cat knows she has to play second fiddle, while I chortle my way through it.

    Yes, I’m here. How did you know that I eat my cereal right out of the box? You’re spooky. And golden.

    I’m going to stick that there gold thing on my blog, as soon as I finish my cereal. Munch, munch. oxo ❀ ❀


    • Hi Yvonne πŸ˜€

      Deviant ? Well, maybe so ! How wonderful to have a cat which plays a fiddle. Mine just sleep then rip up my clothes and bed when they are awake.

      Enjoy your munchies. Hugs. Spooky Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello YC πŸ˜€ You are very welcome. I loved that golden retriever too. Ralph πŸ˜€


  3. I guess I’ll have to start calling you Goldfinger from now on, Ralph. The man with the Midas touch..


    • Hi SDHD πŸ˜€ Hey. I’m a good guy ! But I could be bad, really bad sometimes. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀



  4. And hear I thought you were going all Willy Wonka on us with a Golden ticket? I loved this post and I laughed loudly until I remembered that silence is golden. You’re so cute Ralph. I love those shirts! Also, where did you find that ring?????


    • Hello Stephanie πŸ˜€
      You must have been peeking ! How else would you have known about my Willy Wonka ? πŸ˜‰
      Oh ! The ring ? It’s found on your finger. I peeked. πŸ˜‰
      Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  5. That looks very sweet , thank you Ralph! I wonder how many more friends I had if I win the lottery…. Hehe you might find your dream woman if you did….. πŸ™‚


    • Hello Ute πŸ˜€ You are welcome to take one my friend. Oh ! The present ! Not one of the 3 men ! Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket as it seems my only hope. πŸ˜‰ Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  6. MOL πŸ˜€ You’re not only a gold-digger, but also a fortune teller, Ralph…Granny and I just couldn’t stop reading, this post is GOLDEN and you are too. Thank you for sharing your gold with us. You get an Extra Pawkiss for that πŸ™‚ ❀


    • Hello Binky πŸ˜€ I love receiving your pawkisses my furry friend. A tummy tickle from me. Ralph xox ❀
      PS Sonic & Samantha are good as gold today after reading your comment πŸ˜€

  7. I was just scrolling down my blog reader this morning, with a nice coffee by my side when I saw a big picture of ME! That was scarey, nearly coffee everywhere – then I realised, Oh it’s only Ralph, don’t panic πŸ™‚ Must have been the gold in the khan el khalili market in Cairo, that inspired you? Or just my golden hair, tee hee. Lovely idea anyway Ralph and thanks for making me feel a bit special today x


    • Hi Wendy πŸ˜€ Sorry about the coffee ! I would hate to be billed for coffee and probably cereal stain cleaning of your dressing gown πŸ˜‰
      Yes. It was the gold suq which started off this post. I used to frequent the gold shops in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. No matter what the design of the gold items, they were sold only by carat, weight and the daily gold price.
      You ARE special my friend. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Camelia πŸ˜€ Intriguing indeed and I’m so pleased that you loved this post. And may you have a lovely week too. Ralph xox ❀
      PS. Your English is better than mine ! πŸ˜€


  8. How lovely and creative! But I can’t stop wishing it was you in a wet t-shirt contest. πŸ˜‰ 8)


    • Hi Katie πŸ˜€ Thank you my friend.
      Sorry. No wet t-shirt for me as I might get a cold and I would then need a nurse to comfort me, mop my brow etc.. On second thoughts … !
      Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Shey πŸ˜€
      Oh ! Come on ! You know I’m the one wearing the gold Speedos ! πŸ˜‰
      Have a lovely week my toy girl. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Lumar πŸ˜‰ Wow ! You ARE original ! I thought all women loved gold and diamonds and ……. lol πŸ˜€ Ralph xox ❀


  9. Fascinating! Well, I’m off to my mirror with a stack of paper and a felt pen. I’ll recycle all of the wasted paper (promise), and if something fab is revealed, I’ll let you know! I mean really, I think “WordPress” should make this “Freshly Pressed”
    _Resa xo


    • Hello my friend πŸ˜€
      I am sure that you have different uses for your mirror πŸ˜‰
      Wow ! I didn’t know WordPress irons clothes as well !
      Have a lovely day Resa. Ralph xox ❀


  10. MFR, You are hilarious. Of course, we are out here reading, reading, reading, I never realized I was a gold blogger. I guess that’s kinder than being a gold digger. πŸ™‚ Another great post. πŸ™‚ xox


    • Hello Marsha MVBF πŸ˜€ You are definitely a gold blogger ! And you could be a gold digger where you live ! I would like to try that one day. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


    • Merhaba SeΓ§il. πŸ˜€ Γ‡ok teşekkΓΌr ederim ve ben harika bir hafta kendinizi yaşıyorsanΔ±z umuyoruz. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Elizabeth πŸ˜€ Wow ! What a gorgeous comment ! Not only do you get a golden present from me I am adding a bouquet of hugs as well. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello JD πŸ˜€ If I admit it all my followers will be wearing them. I couldn’t do that to them. On second thoughts. I admit it !!! lol πŸ˜‰ Ralph πŸ˜€


    • Hello Robert πŸ˜€ Thank you for the follow. I have no idea where I have been. Does anyone know where I’ve been? πŸ˜‰ Ralph πŸ˜€


  11. Another amazing post, Ralph! You really had me going there. That gold bath is a bit OTT, but I so wanted the goldfish bra. πŸ™„ It’s a very pretty award, so I might try to put it on my blog page. I’m not very good at widgets though 😦


    • Hi Sylvia πŸ˜€ It’s nice to get you going especially if you wore that goldfish bra under a blouse. There would be a lot of movement with the fish splashing around. That would be interesting to watch πŸ˜‰
      Widgets are a pain and need a lot of explaining to get them right. I just played with them and practiced making a lot of mistakes on the way to getting them right.
      Hugs. Ralph xox ❀

  12. I’m a silver kinda gal, do you have one in silver?
    Seriously Ralph, that is so ingenious!! πŸ™‚ But you’d never have known blog is gold backwards if you hadn’t looked in the mirror wearing that T-shirt. πŸ™‚
    So now you need to put in on your sidebar!

    Have a golden week!

    ❀ carmen


    • Hi Carmen πŸ˜€ Revlis doesn’t work ! Shame really ! I did try to put it on my sidebar …… the t-shirt that is, but fabric doesn’t work with WP ! πŸ˜‰ Hugs. Ralph xox ❀

    • Hi Lara πŸ˜€ Thank you so much. You are so sweet. And wow you are using it ! Ralph xox ❀

    • Hi Arlene πŸ˜€ It surely was a fun post and I liked those two as well. Have a great weekend. Ralph xox ❀


  15. Funny, funny funny and funnier than funny, Ralph! Haven’t been here in forever, actually haven’t visited almost anyone lately. I do hope you are doing well and taking care of yourself! Your writing is still excellent, but I expect nothing less from you. πŸ™‚ xx


    • Hi Penny πŸ˜€ Wow ! It’s really lovely to see you here my friend after so long. I wish I could blog 24/7. With only 3 or 4 hours a day I am also cutting back, concentrating mainly on this blog which keeps me busy. Thank you so much for your kind words. I hope we can have at least an annual meeting like this πŸ˜‰ lol. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Tracy πŸ˜€ heehee ! I am inclined to agree with you. Have a lovely week. Ralph xox ❀
