~ Hot Cats ~

My English friends,  David & Hilda,  who live in their finca nearby,   have been rescuing dogs & cats for years.  This summer has been really hot (40C) and some of their cats show it.

~ Train Journey ~

So one day last week I left my home near Cortes de la Frontera for my next session of acupuncture in Gibraltar.  I went by train & taxi in Spain  and caught a bus in Gibraltar.

My cats were crying (with happiness) as I closed the apartment door.

I walked to Cortes de la Fontera station, arriving early.

Half an hour late my train appeared.

I settled down in my seat to enjoy my stress free travelling experience to San Roque.

~ Acupuncture ~

Amazingly I arrived in Gibraltar spot on time for my second acupuncture appointment.

Francesca again was very professional, kind and caring as I spent almost 2 hours in her hands and I sense a subtle improvement with my balance & hands.

Hopefully next week we will take some photos of Francesca at work on me.  You’ll just love to see me getting the needle, won’t you ?

~ Going Home ~

After 2 hours I started my return journey back home to Spain from Gibraltar.

The first train to arrive …..

A few minutes later my train, heading north, decided to pick me up.

Speeding round bends and through tunnels, the train is finally coming to my village.

It passes my apartment in the big wonky shaped house ….

  3. Hi Ralph,
    I read your “system” for dealing with Emails on Debby Kaye’s blog. Would you be interested in guest posting for MostlyBlogging.com and explaining your system? If yes, do you think you could expand it to a 500 word post? I found you system interesting and helpful and I think my readers might too.

    • Hello again Janice,
      I have had a few hours to mull over your request…..ha ! my internet was down for hours. Seriously, I would enjoy being one of your guest bloggers. Of course I’ll knock something up for you. I have your email address from editing your comment and I’ll send you an attached notepad file in a few days. Is that okay ? Or have you another method you wish to use ?
      PS Humour blogger ? You’ve found me out. I think I need a lawyer 😉
