Seriously Funny !


~UK/Israel Flag Pin~


The other day David & Hilda invited me to go to the coast with them to do some food shopping.Β  Our first stop in Estepona, Andalucia, Spain, was for David to collect a spare part for his car while Hilda and I went for a coffee.


You may have noticed that I am wearing a UK/Israel flag pin.


I support Israel 100%.Β  Why ?Β  It’s the Promised Land.Β  Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East that treats all its citizens equally, no matter what race or religion.Β  I have experienced a beautiful country with Israelis, Christian Palestinians, Muslim Palestinians working together and enjoying each others’ company without prejudice.Β  This country has a Divine right to exist, flourish and to defend itself.Β  There is a cancer of fear and evil surrounding and attacking the tiny country of Israel; a cancer of hate, violence, crime, drugs, economic and political immorality, etc. which is spreading throughout the world.Β  There is no compromise but to totally eradicate all forms of that cancer of fear and evil and it has to be done now.Β  I ❀ Israel and I will stand by that country shoulder to shoulder.Β  If these few words help Israel then I am a happy bunny !Β  I can’t wait for the day when everyone can say with joy and happiness >>>>

“I ❀ my neighbour !”


~Blocked in~


After David met up with Hilda and I, we went back to the car hoping to drive on to Aldi and Mercadona food stores ….


….. but, when we got back to the car we found a massive truck double parked behind us being unloaded and blocking us in.

So what do friends do while waiting ?Β  Have a sweet perhaps ?




Or get out and take some photos ?Β  Perhaps not !


That’s better !







~Fish and Chips~

Freed at last, shopping done, off we went to Marlows for some good old English fish & chips.Β 


Makes a change from eating Spanish tapas while out for the day !


Ha !Β  Tapas are more like this !


Anyway, Hilda cut the fish for me.


Simple and fishy !Β  That’s enough talk about me !Β 


See !Β  Simple and fishy !


Hilda, my camerawoman, took these photos in the restaurant.Β  I felt shaken, not stirred !





They ran out of “The End Of The World Is Nigh” sandwich boards.


Meanwhile, back home !


No, I didn’t, Sonic !Β  You are Spanish cats and eat tapas !Β  Hahaha !




Wow !Β  2000 followers !Β  Thank you so much everyone for spending that special moment in clicking on Follow from your home, wine bottle, ward, prison cell, empty office, bar, train, suburban chaos, traffic jam or insomnia.Β  99% are WordPress.Β  The rest must be my therapists.Β  Thank you all !

Roxana is the 2000th follower.




~Sunset in Spain~


It’s not very often I get to see a great sunset here as the skies are usually totally clear or clouded over, but this particular evening was quite spectacular.


~My Christmas Lights~



Seriously, what do you find funny ?

  3. I can’t remember the last time I had fish ‘n chips! There is a lovely place at the opposite end of town that does them up best. I think I feel a bus trip coming on πŸ™‚

  4. Dear Ralph,
    So happy to hear Roxana is your 2000th Therapist!
    I find it funny that people eat fish & chips. Why eat fish when you can eat lentils? Why eat chips when you can eat brussel sprouts? Hahaha! I’m sure you see the humor in all of this food hilarity!
    Of course cats don’t like tapas… Hello!!! Cats want Beef Feast. Or, they want those unhealthy expensive treat things that make their fur thicker for shedding on your clothes & bedding.
    Much love, hugs and kisses,
    ❀ #< xoxo

    • Hello dear Resa πŸ˜€
      Roxana is Spanish so I wouldn’t have a clue what she would be therapising about.
      Ah, lentils, those funny little furry creatures that hurl themselves off of cliffs or do they sprout in Brussels ? So your star sign is Vegetarian ? No beef from me then πŸ˜€
      Yep, my cats do shed fur in bucket loads that’s why I give them a brush every morning. They demand that I do it !
      Love, hugs and kisses back dear friend.

    • Hi Kate πŸ˜€
      Yep, I concur and even agree with you πŸ˜€
      Deprived cats ? I am nearly falling off, sitting, sort of, on the front edge of my office chair with Samantha sprawled out on the seat behind me with her paws in my back and Sonic on my lap trying to bury himself inside the dressing gown I’m wearing ! They say hi back to you my friend. Ralph xox ❀

      Israel needs all the support it can get especially in these times when war is looming and all Israel wants is peace and friendship.

  9. The Spanish female dancer was funny when you talked about Tapas πŸ™‚ ! About your words over Israel, I’m totally agree with you because my parents have there been several times and have always talked positive about it and for myself I already have made long time ago my own opinion that I found Israel a great and strong, very interesting country !! πŸ™‚
