Summer Party

The other day I received an invitation …..


….. to go to David & Hilda’s home here in southern Spain for a party.Β  Yay !


It just so happened to coincide with a full moon on the Summer Solstice.Β  The next full moon on a Summer Solstice will be in 2062 when I will be 116 years old and probably will marry a 21 year old super-model that day unless one of you ladies out there sweep me off my feet first.Β  Well, you have 46 years to work on it.Β  πŸ˜€

Click for original solstice full moon photograph. Normally I would have deleted the original straight away as a finger was half over the camera lens, but I could see an unusual result. So with a bit of cropping these two pictures emerged. Great, aren’t they ?



Welcome to the party !






Ralph talking to Thierry who is French and doesn’t understand what I am gibbering about.
Mary and Louise talking intently about wallflowers
Breda and Hilda admiring the wallflowers
Wallflowers John and Adrian
Breda and Louise conversing about wallflowers.
Breda’s wine glass being topped up by Carmen……again !
Carmen the barmen
Jim made a boob in taking this photograph.


As you can see this party had no cats.





Β The food was great.


Ana is so slow in serving the paella !
David the host and chef



Mary, Ralph 2, Margaret and Brian



Β The music by Marcus was brilliant ……


….. to dance the night away to.

Louise & Ralph
Max clinching Ralph




Ralph and Hilda

I bet you would have loved to dance with me.Β  I must learn how to Jive so that I can swing you over my shoulders and between my legs at the bar before the music starts. πŸ˜‰


Β Then, of course, the company of friends enhanced the evening.

Bill and Max
Jim & Louise. Did you notice Jim's magical appearing spectacles ?
Jim & Louise. Did you notice Jim’s magical spectacles ?

Thank you David & Hilda for a wonderful party πŸ˜€


Will you dance with me at least once within the next 46 years ?

I’m unavailable 20th of June 2062 as I’ve probably just met a 21 year old super-model that day and I’ll marry her the following day.Β  Got to work fast when 116 years oldΒ  πŸ˜€

      LOL. Thank you my friend, it was a great party and, yes, most of my friends are British here. Yet there are Norwegian, Irish, French, Romanian and, of course, Spanish here as well.

      “Hi MVBFM πŸ˜€
      I know nothing about WP Org. Does Akismet catch spam in there ? If so, try contacting them here and explain your problem >>>>
      A year or so ago all my comments in other blogs except my own ended up in their spam. I contacted WP Com Forum and a member suggested that I contact Akismet directly, which I did. Within a day or so all my comments returned to normal on other blogs. BTW your blog is the only one where my comments disappear.
      Thank you so much for explaining what you have been up to with your blogs and comments. I am so pleased that in some way I have been some help for you.
      Have a lovely weekend πŸ˜€ ❀ "

        “Because my blog is becoming more popular, i.e. 100+ likes, 100+ comments ( 50% being my replies ) and 250+ WP emails, all generated from one published post, I had to cut back on my posts. I am now publishing once a fortnight which takes a lot of pressure off of me, which means I can reply to comments, visit everyone’s blog who has liked or commented, draft a new post and have plenty of real time. I have also cut back on blogs I follow which has helped tremendously in reducing my inbox. πŸ˜€ ❀ "

      Ah, big problem. At the 46th year point I will be a married man with responsibilities such as staying alive. I think 100 years is pushing the envelope somewhat, but there will always be room in my little book for a dance with you my friend.

      I totally agree with you. Over many years David and Hilda have converted what was basically a shed into a gorgeous home. A lot of work, but the end result is worth it and it makes a lovely place for a party.

      Normally when I visit David and Hilda there are cats everywhere as they have rescued a dozen or so and are now pets. Because there were so many people and so much noise they had all disappeared from the outside except for the one in a quiet corner so I had to take a photo of it just for you my friend. Yes, we did have a fun time and the paella was as tasty as it looked.

I’m having a great night here in Manchester – it’s never stopped raining, we’ve actually had hailstone this afternoon it was so cold brrrrrrrr.. but tonight the sun is shining in my house having eating a delicious curry – recipe courtesy of blogger Sumith and now a belly laugh courtesy of your Party post! I’m still on the weightloss journey so belly really was ‘wobbling’ (particularly after the curry – not sure this really helped the diet!). Hopefully by the time I’m 116 I may have lost the belly! 1 stone down 3 more to go… Dream on….

      Wow, what a long comment ! I am so happy to have made you chuckle and to read that you have enjoyed this post.
      Oh boy, the British summer is really having fun with you, isn’t it ? Heck, it is July for goodness sake and you should be enjoying sunny days instead of brrrrrrrr, hail and constant rain. I have forgotten what those three are as it was about 37Β° C this afternoon, hot, hot, hot !
      I am so pleased to read both here and in your post of your delicious curry. I am not a curry fan. When I was young I used to travel from the boarding school on the Isle of Wight to Nigeria for holidays as my parents lived and worked there. Every Sunday there was a meal laid on in the Bauchi Club for all the expats. In one such meal I picked out a small sardine looking fish from the buffet, ate it whole and I reckon it was solid curry powder. Yuk !
      Oooh, it must be awful to be constantly worried about your figure, but I am glad that you enjoyed your curry anyway my friend.
      Have a great Sunday. Ralph xox ❀


      • Hahahaha – You just continue to enjoy every minute of that glorious Spanish Summer Ralph – I’m not jealous or anything!
        Yak – I’m not surprised your experience of eating the ‘curry powder’ put you off curries for life!
        Hope you have a lovely day tomorrow too and I’ll think of you from under my brolly (sadly not the sun shade that you’ll be looking for..)

    However, I miss your 3 cats. I understand why you don’t take them. Cats don’t whether well at parties. Fortunately, I was pleased to see 2 cats at this party. I especially appreciate that one of the cats came in a dog costume.
    June 20, 2062…. unbelievable!!! I have a date with an aged rock star on that exact day! I don’t care how old he is exactly, as I will be too, old to know that numbers mean anything.
