25000 Plus 70 Equals ???



Hello lovely bubblies.  Yes,  between you and me,  we have exceeded 25000 approved comments over this blog’s four and a half years.  25000 ?  Really ?  I have no idea what we talked about as my memory has gone due to ….. 


* …. my 70th Birthday *

Yes,  today I am 70 years old;  a day when everything goes downhill;  a day when I lose my memory,  forget to zip up my trousers,  walk to the shops in my slippers and on arrival forget what I am there for;  a day when I am known locally in this Spànish village for being the notorious English Unzipped Slipper-Wearing Forgetful Shopper.  (I think it was the unzipped bit which swung it)


One amazing gift I received was from Sonata who must have taken forever to create the following.  Thank you so, so much my friend 🙂

Hey cats !  Aren’t you going to wish me a happy birthday ?

At least be a little bit enthusiastic.

No I didn’t !  You two should be giving me a present !



So much for turning 70.  Nothing’s changed !


I am publishing this post really early on my birthday morning.  Must get some sleep before my party this afternoon.  Yes,  there will be photos in my next post.

Now !  Where are my slippers ?



Are you at an age when you wish you were older or younger,  or more foolish or wiser ?

    • Grazie mille Lella. Io non ho sicuri di cosa ti riferisci da fantastiche? Che si tratti di 25.000 commenti, o il mio compleanno, o miei gatti. Ma alla mia età io accetterò qualsiasi cosa. Haha. lol.
      Big hug. Ralph xox ❤

      • Buongiorno Lella da un insolitamente umida sud della Spagna. Inoltre insolitamente, ho salvato la vostra risposta dal mio cruscotto spam. Posso controllare lo spam ogni giorno, quindi non è un problema.
        Io faccio uso di Google Translate soprattutto per rispetto. La vostra lingua sul tuo blog è italiano, in modo da evitare di dover tradurre dall’inglese io uso il traduttore.
        Devo scusarmi per non commentare i tuoi post, ma i prodotti di bellezza non sono necessari per me, come ho un aspetto spento. Intendiamoci, si guarda favoloso indossare il make-up.
        Vi auguro una buona giornata. Ralph ❤
