Sleeping Beauty


……there was a Ralphie who lived in a tower in Spainland. For two years he was under the spell of the Wicked Twitch who made his hands shake shakily and his walk teeter teeterly in a dastardly way.



He used to sleep normally…..


….. with an afternoon siesta ……



…… and he even made a vlog (very late on going-to-bed) Youtube video.


NOT that one ! This one !


Although under the spell of the Wicked Twitch Ralphie was happy…….


….. and while out walking one day he came across a fair maiden called Farmer Sue Tickle …..


….. who gave him a bag of magic pills. Ralphie immediately ate oneΒ  and Farmer Sue Tickle chanted …….


Kazzammm !!!

Ralphie was zapped by a sleeping spell !


He slept in the morning …..


……. at noon …..


……. in the early afternoon ……


….. into the evening …..


……. late into the night.



His housework and blogging suffered.



Hour after hour, day after day Ralphie slept, awakening only for short periods.



Ralphie dreamed .

Once he was a furry creature searching for warmth.


Another time he was attacked by a Yellow Giant !


And recently he dreamt that he was used as a Post It.




Ralphie’s 3 Fairy Godmothers exploded into view.

WAKE UP Ralphie !


WAKE UP Ralphie or I’ll clonk you one !


Sorry. You’re a hopeless case Ralphie !


And just as quickly ……


…… they vanished !


Can Ralphie be saved from the Wicked Twitch and the sleep spell placed upon him by Farmer Sue Tickle ?


Is there a …….. ?


Who knows ? The magic pills have gone. The Wicked Twitch is still casting her spell ….

….. and Ralphie ?

He’s gone to bed !




Coming ?

    • Hi YC πŸ˜€ What a great idea. Yes. Turning off the lights may help me to sleep, but it’s no good when making a video. Ralph πŸ˜€


  2. Thanks to Not a Punk Rocker, the penny dropped for me, too. Clonk, it hit me on the head. I hope this new personality trend is short lived, Ralphie, we need you awake and alert, at least some of the time!

    How is Toni, she must be ready to bring that new child into this crazy world.

    Take care, mate. Your groupies depend on you. oxo ❀ ❀ πŸ™‚

    • Hello Ute πŸ˜€ I think that you are on a winner there. 3 hours work ? Let’s see. Travelling time, coffee & lunch breaks, personal blogging & emails, solitaire, chatting with friends. That’s about 3 hours ! So long as the pay, holidays, perks are really good I should renegotiate your contract for a 3 hour working …. month ? If I was your boss I would sign the contract πŸ˜€ Ralph zzz ❀

  7. Oh no, that giant yellow thing is terrifying. Now I’ll never get to sleep. πŸ˜† You know, Ralphie, it’s much too late at night here to be laughing so loud. The neighbors called and told me to knock it off and go to bed. So I will say good night, darlin. ❀ zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  8. Thank you for liking “First Snow.” I am sorry to hear that the medicine you are taking is turning you into Sleeping Beauty. Is there an another medication that you could take that won’t put you to sleep, or are you stuck with this one?

    I can relate to what you are going through. One of my dad’s doctors is changing the dose of his blood pressure medications, and now my dad’s blood pressure is going up and down. His sleep patterns are off too, but I am not sure it is because of the medicine he is taking.

    • Hello Arlene πŸ˜€ I hope that the doctor finds the balance that your dad needs. It must be a worry for you.
      The course of tablets I took finished a week ago, but I am still sleeping too much. A five hour siesta this afternoon and 2 hours this evening can’t be right, but I prefer sleeping to not being able to sleep.
      Have a lovely week. Ralph zzz ❀


      • Thanks for your concern about my dad. Yes, I hope she will find the right dose soon. These constant visits to the outpatient clinic are tiring for both of us.

        I am surprised to find out that you are still sleeping a lot even though you are not taking those tablets anymore. Perhaps you are experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Hopefully the side effect of sleeping too much will go away soon.

        I appreciate your likes for some of the illustrations I did on Imagine New Designs Gallery. I have noticed that people like my sketches and other illustration work on that website more than the actual professional work I did for different organizations. That is part of the reason why I decided to create Moonlight Gallery as a blog solely for my illustration work. I am thinking about including other types of illustration work besides fantasy art on my Moonlight Gallery blog. I enjoy doing pieces like “Siamese Fighting Fish” and “Vintage Car” as well as fantasy art.

      • I agree. The visits to the medics do take so much out of you. My next is on the 16th, a two hour round trip through the mountains, plus the waiting.
        You might be right that I’m having withdrawal symptoms. I am still tired and didn’t blog yesterday, just couldn’t face it. I must catch up this morning !
        I loved the fish. Great picture πŸ˜€

      • Wow, that’s a long trip to the hospital! I am glad the outpatient clinic I take my dad to is not that far away. However, we sometimes wait around a long time too depending on how busy the clinic is.

        I am sorry to hear you are still feeling tired, but I am glad to hear from you again. I am also glad you liked the fish picture. πŸ™‚

    I made my way here via Frank’s post on intended emails – LOL
    I’ve been away from the WP for a while. Nothing bad – just been busy busy. Frank stopped by to see how I was doing & when I stopped to respond I was directed to you. So- visiting two of my favorite guys in one day has been a treat. Now – dinner calls & I must eat. (Hey – that rhymed!)
    I hope to make my way to the WP soon.
    Meanwhile – keep livin’ it up!

    You certainly have lots of adventures! Thanks for giving me my laugh for the day. No, actually, it was my laugh for the week.

    I am so glad that I work from home, since my office mates would not take too kindly to all this laughter. πŸ™‚

    • No we haven’t talked for ages Julie. I’m fine. Just permanently walking around like I’m drunk with hands that don’t work. Otherwise I am a happy bunny. And how are you my friend ? Happy Sunday ! Ralph xox ❀


      • Are you sure that ‘drunk’ sensation hasn’t come from a little bottle of something? I’m doing well at the moment thank you, but we’re going through a seasonal change, and it’s starting to get colder, and we’re having quite a bit of rain……which is ideal for me, as I’m not a hot weather person, especially when it hits 40-odd. Have a great week sweets, and get some rest, I know what you’re like, always on the go. Julie ❀ xx

      • I never drink alone at home and only have a couple of beers at a party or socially.
        It seems that women love the sun for a tan. I love it too, but 40+ is a bit much. Mid 30s and I’m happy. I expect you can do with the rain.
        Have a lovely week Julie and do have a singsong in the rain.
        Take care my friend xoxo ❀


      • I’m the same, I’d rather eat chocolate at home alone, and tanning is not my thing. My sisters always laugh at my white legs, but c’est la vie. I’ll be on the news, woman dancing down the street singing in the rain…..where is Gene Kelly when you need him? <3<3
