My Little Black Book

I’ve got to go to Court !

I’m being had up for being a terrible kisser I think, so says “Liposuction Side Effects”.

*suck & slurp*

It must have been all the spam I had !

(I didn’t open the zip file)


I also had spam to appear in the same Court on Easter Sunday for not paying a toll in ( I think ) the USA.

I haven’t got a car and I live in Spain.

I’ll lose the case !


And now on to the post.





Sorry Samantha. My hands and balance are even worse after my final session of The Drip.

Maria, Ralph & Mariam. This was taken at 10am. I was up at 5am ! Tired before the drip started !
Maria, Ralph & Mariam. (This photo was taken at 10am 07 April. I was up at 5am and was tired before the drip itself even started.  Finished at 4pm. Whew !)

No more IVs. Yay ! Just tests in 3 month’s time.










I haven’t got a Little Black Book. A Microsoft Notepad with lots of blogs and author names, yes !

This is a third of all the names
This is about a third of all the commenters names I have

You see, when I first started receiving comments, I wanted (still do ) to be friendly and use the author’s name in my replies. Sometimes I couldn’t find names which was difficult for me and things could get a little weird. Such as >>>>>

IMAGINARY BLOG.                                                   MY IMAGINARY COMMENT

My Love For Lorn And Becka……………..That’s really sad For Lorn.
Forgetting My Pants………………………Thanks Forgetting My Pants.
Writing Made Simple…………………….. I’ve got it Made.
Keeping Abreast Of Life…………………..You’ve got a handful there Abreast.
A Wee Scottish Blog……………………… I really needed that Wee.

I am even starting to remember some of your names without referring to my Little Black Book Notepad.

So if your name is Ten Ton Tony from Tonga, please comment so I can add you to my list !







Are you a real or imaginary blogger ?

I think you are imaginary, lost & bewildered.

  4. I had a scare a few months ago – I discovered that I was following and commenting on the blog of a distinctly dodgy person who is now in jail. It’s really made me think twice about the true persona of our on-line ‘friends’. Your little black book is a great idea – I’m hopeless at remembering peeps names too. Very soon there is going to be a kitten at our house! You’ve inspired me to get a cat 🙂 Glad that you are now drip free and I hope that you are feeling lots better. Have a great week dear Ralph – lots of hugs xxxxx

      I find the list of bloggers really useful and I have to refer to it a lot as some people are either new or only comment rarely.
      I think both you and Irishman will love a cat at home. They are fun.
      I am not better, but my Neurologist reckons it will be a few weeks before I see any benefit from The Drip. I may become really dodgy then 😉
      Have a lovely day, well a windy one. It is here.

      • Oh Ralph, I’m so sorry to hear that you are still feeling crapola 😦 I’m sure the neurologist knows what he’s doing and that you will feel the benefits soon. It’s very windy here too but bright. Mrs Canary has just laid her first egg!! I’m so excited – I’ve been watching her make a nest for the past week and Mr Canary has been kissing her a lot! I don’t think that you are remotely dodgy by the way! I simply meant that it’s scary that we think we ‘know’ someone by their on-line persona and sometimes we are badly wrong. Guess that’s all part and parcel of the internet age that we live in. Have a lovely day and enjoy the sunshine, albeit a bit breezy xox

      • That’s lovely. Is Mrs Canary wild ? I have a big problem with house sparrows nesting in the rain gutters. None above the rear balcony this year as I have CDs flashing in the wind. I sit there and don’t want half the campo all over me, but in the front there are 3 nests. I had the builders cover the gutters and chimneys with 1cm fencing to stop the birds nesting in the gutter itself. I’ll clear the nests in the Autumn. Cloudy and very windy here. xox

    Is there a chance the medication effects will take a while to show up, Ralph, or was it all a darn waste of time and hoping? At least those nice nurses got the chance to meet you, and spend time in your illustrious presence.

  23. Thank you for liking “Glory of the Grass.” I am glad that you are done with the IVs, but I am sad that they did not help you. Is there any other treatment for your problems with your hands and your balance? I sympathize with your situation because my dad has problems with balance too, and sometimes he asks for my help to get things or put things away because it is such a hassle for him to get up and move around. He worries about dropping things too, and he has.

    My cats have varying reactions to loud noises depending on what the noise is and how close it is to them. They are not scared of the sound of Fourth of July firecrackers, but they got frightened by the sound of a casserole lid I accidentally dropped in the kitchen. They will tolerate the noise of the vacuum cleaner in a nearby room, but they will run away if I move the vacuum cleaner too close to them.

    To answer your question, I am pretty sure that I am a real blogger unless we are all part of the daydream of some brain in a jar connected to an artificial intelligence machine. 🙂 Take care, Ralph. 🙂

    • Hi dear Arlene. My Neurologist said that it may take a couple of months for the IV to show a change in my condition. She didn’t say that short term I may feel worse. Oh boy ! Your dad and I together should go into the house wrecking business 🙄 I hope he gets better.

      Thanks for telling me about your cats, They are characters aren’t they ?

      You may be right when you said, “….we are all part of the daydream of some brain in a jar connected to an artificial intelligence machine”, but I’m not too sure about the intelligent part 😉

      • Oh no, more bad side effects again! 😦
        I know it is tough what you and my dad have to go through. At least you can laugh about your problems. I am not sure if my dad will ever get better because his balance problems are caused by nerve damage caused by diabetes. He has trouble changing his bad eating habits, so his blood sugar is still not well controlled. His high blood sugar levels make the nerve damage worse.

        You are welcome. Yes, my cats have distinct personalities, and their antics make me laugh. 🙂

        You may be right that we are actually hooked up to a different machine. How about an LSD drug trip simulator or a roller coaster safety testing machine? 😉

        I hope you have a lovely day too, Ralph. 🙂

      • Thank you for your support, Ralph. I have heard that people can get addicted to sugar, so it can be difficult for people to stop eating too much of it. My dad uses artificial sweeteners, but he still eats too many carbohydrates, which is not good for him.

        My cats do something similar too but not very often.

        It would be great if we could unplug the LSD simulator machine. 🙂
