Yep !








I wonder what the cats will give to me.Β  I am soooo excited !

I got some great ideas for them off of a Google search.

Flying lessons perhaps …..


…… a book …..


….. chocolate ……


….. a new smartphone ……


….. a drinks cabinet …..


….. a new coffee cup (come on ! 69 !) ….


….. or, even a lovely lady whom I can be nice to.





Awww !Β  My cats are sooo sweet in thinking about me.Β 

I thought they were like this >>>



I just can’t wait for the postman to arrive !



Β 69va





Cats !Β  Oh boy !


Are you a “Yep !!” type of person ?

    • Thank you so much dear Mirna. You may tip me upside down or turn me over for a whole year and I’ll still be 69. My cats don’t know that ….. yet !

  1. Happy Birthday, Ralph! No matter, Samantha & Sonic are gifts themselves. Anyway, can you imagine what they would pick as a gift for you? A dead mouse at the door! Or a live fish in a bowl! Have a wonderful birthday! πŸ’˜ Chryssa

      I am so lucky that my cats will never present me with such gifts as they are apartment cats and only venture onto the 2 balconies.

Some of them bright colors. Of course most of the ones I buy are like sizes 5-9 for women 5’2″ to 5″5″. I don’t suppose that would work for someone you height. Hmmmm. Maybe just some hugs and kisses??? xoxoxoxox Hope you had a wonderful birthday. πŸ™‚
