For Sale …… Me !

It’s said that if you are single, you would end up old, sad and have two cats.

Heck !  I am single, old, sad and have two cats.  I need to be unsingled !





That’s a great suggestion.  I’ll get dolled up and go out now.



Well, that was an hour wasted.


Here is some of the local talent I met in this Spanish mountain village of mine.

~ Comparing hairdos ~



~ OOTD ~



~ A more slinkier OOTD ~


Baaad idea !




That’s me banished to the wastelands of Facebook then.


That’s a better idea Samantha.  Sell myself !


~ For Sale ~

A genuine Ralph antique thingy.

Two careful lady owners and about five manic ones

Chassis in good condition

Bodywork needs handling carefully.  No waxing !

Smokes due to a rusty piston

On display in a lovely apartment

Speaks English & Spanish.  (His English is understandable whereas his Spanish sounds more like a Klingon with a cold)


So.  Make your bid.  >>>>

1. No thanks.  I’ve already got a rusty antique thingy.

2. Nah !  I would rather have (and crash) the latest sports model with va-va-voom.

3. I’m offering less than one euro.  Deal with it !

4. I’m desperate.  I’ll halve that offer.

5. A little more than one euro, but just for the apartment.

6. One MILLION euros !  It’s a charitable tax deductible gift made out of pity and rice paper.

7. Other, or a bit of the other








I give up.  Maybe I should take up blogging.  Can’t be that hard !


How would you sell yourself ?


Ralph xox ❤


The sheep are from a Google Search and are not mine.  I did not chat them up and I did not have kids …… oh, that’s the goats.  Another story ! 😉

    • Hi Sylvia 😀 My cats are beginning to accept other humans now instead of hiding under the sheets when I have visitors. So they may have to get used to sharing if a miracle happens.
      Is blogging easy then ? 😉

  12. Hi Ralph, you must be feeling better if you missing some company. That’s a positive.
    It must be pretty nice there in the winter. I would put an add in your home town paper in Endland and offer a one week “get away” from winter to senior women ( no strings attached). I wouldn’t make it free because people don’t appreciate something if you just give it away. Just charge enough to cover the food and one or two meals out. Give her your room and you sleep on the couch. That way you would have the opportunity to meet and get to know someone and if it works out – that would be great. If it doesn’t work out – it would only be for a week. You might have some interesting guests and just might meet someone special.

  16. Well, I could just go outside of my home & stand on the street. I’d be bought up quite quickly, but then I live in a major metropolitan city.
    I would suggest you move to a big city to market yourself, but I’m worried you would be arrested for having 2 cats. We have very strict cat licensing laws in Toronto.
    Ralph, you are adorable! Much love, Resa xoxo ❤ <#

  17. I know what you mean about being an ‘antique thingy’, Ralph. It comes to us all, I’m afraid. The idea is to ‘think young’ -which I’m sure you do! How else would you come up with pics of sheep in pink shoes? LOL Perhaps online dating’s the way you should go – depending on how brave you are! If it were me, I’d chicken out at that one. I’m so glad Sonic and Samantha have your best interests at heart. Love to you all out there in lovely Andalusia. 🙂

    If Amazingzon is he available on Prime for next day delivery? Is he dispatched by drone? Finally if I am not entirely satisfied I assume there is a cooling off period for distance selling and the possibility of a full refund?
