356: Valentine’s Day. Crazy Or What ?

~Private Message~


Hello my darling wife Natascha,

Happy Valentine’s Day !

No one reads my posts (they either Like on Reader, or scroll down so fast that their devices smoke).  So this message is just between the two of us …… Nooo !  Don’t scroll down so fast that your laptop smokes.  It’s smokin’ !   Oh well, just me talkng to myself then !   I was going to say ….

“I am still amazed on how we hit it off a couple of years ago, got together and became an item.  Yes, it is almost 10 months since we went through all those upsets and then the joy of getting married.   Natascha, you are awesome !  A real pussycat mummy and also a mummy to the wild birds in the garden.  Perhaps most of all is the way you care for me.   My hands make me pretty useless in doing most things and you are always there for me when I need help.  You never complain, just get on with doing almost everything even when you are not feeling well or suffering with a migraine. You are awesome !  Murli, Sonic, Samantha and myself love you to bits, lots and lots and lots. Happy Valentine’s Day sweetheart  ❤ “


~Crazy Lovers !~

There’s this woman who married a ghost pirate.  She is now divorcing him.  Who did she call ?  Ghostbusters ?

And this woman is planning to marry her duvet.  LADY !  Don’t we all !

Then there is this woman who is engaged to a chandelier.  I think that she loves Bud Light too much !

Finally, a woman has a boyfriend called Schatz.  He’s a Boeing 737-800 !  She loves his thrusters.  Don’t upset him Lady, because he may dump you ….. from 30,000 feet ! 


As it is Valentine’s Day, it’s time I gave Samantha a big hug

This is what Samantha thinks of me giving her a hug. “Mummy, get me out of here !”

What Object Would You Marry ?

I know that most of you are married to your coffee pot  😉

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone !

Ralph xox ❤

  8. Love your post. The objects I would Marry is my cat Queen Daisy Mae. Love your striped Tabby Cat. Reminds me of my last cat Tigger who was also a Striped Tabby. She looked exactly like the cat your hugging. Natacha looks beautiful in her wedding dress. Sorry I haven’t commented lately but I’m working on a writing project I started accidentally.

    • Thank you for loving this post Crystal, so kind of you to say. Marrying your cat ! That rings a bell. I think that if I was not around Natascha would marry every cat on the planet 🙂
      I hope your writing project goes well. Take care. Ralph xox ❤


  9. I don’t know about all those other crazy people loving inanimate objects…I just know you and Natascha exemplify the very meaning of Valentines Day!

    • I don’t know about them as well Al, but I am sure that there is a brain cell misplaced somewhere.
      Thank you for your kind words and do have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your family my friend. Ralph 🙂


  10. Ralph, I rarely use the Reader! It’s unreliable. I get emails that you have posted, and I visit the blog. I prefer visiting the actual blogs, it’s like visiting someone in their home.
    The second part of your post is very funny.
    The first part is the true Valentine. I’m so happy you and Natascha found each other. Your love is evident.
    Natascha, the opening shot of you is fabulous! This is the one I will use when I draw the Art Gown O Royal Treasure. If you have seen the 4or 5 I have done already, you see that they are renditions, not portraits. I will do my best.
    So, the second part is funny, and the first part is a true valentine. That makes this post…A Funny Valentine …

    • Thank you for your wonderful comment.
      I agree with you about the Reader, dear Resa. I had one blogger, Gottfried, who liked 20 posts in less than a minute today. Filled up my Inbox and WP notifier ! Rascal !
      I do exactly the same thing as you, visit the blog via my inbox. Heck, we never had the chance to tidy up before your visit to comment 😉
      You are very welcome to use the photograph for your Royal Treasure post. I am sure that you will do your best. Looking forward to reading it. Natascha would have looked lovely in that gown, wouldn’t she ? Never mind, your thought was awesome my friend.
      Great video by Sting !
      Anyway, Happy Valentine’s Day, have a good one.
      Love from myself and Natascha. Ralph xoxoxoxo ❤


    • Thank you so much Amanda. We hope that you had a lovely day too my friend. Hugs. Ralph xox ❤


    • Yes, dear Charlotte, lots of love. It’s lovely to read your blog which is full of love from your family, friends and “workmates” towards you. You deserve it 🙂 Thank you so much for your wishes my friend. Hugs. Ralph xox ❤

  11. Hello Max 🙂 I hope you had a wonderful meal in Gaucin this afternoon with Jim and Louise. I miss you all ! Life as been good to Natascha and myself, no regrets except leaving many good friends behind. I will be writing an email to you as soon as I have finished answering these comments. Write to you later. Ralph xox ❤

  13. Belated Happy Valentines Day to you, Ralph and Natascha! I always read your posts word-for-word, never scanning or skipping anything. Yours is one of my favorites, and I mean that. I find it funny, touching and sometimes you head into surreal territory that I find very entertaining!
    My wife and I did something this year that we’ve never done in 28 years of marriage: we totally ignored Valentine’s Day! It’s now two days later, but so far, it appears that she meant it when she told me not to do anything. It was risky, but so far, so good….

    • Thank you so much Des. It’s awesome to read your take on how you see my blog. I really do appreciate the feedback and your kind words.
      Definitely risky, but not celebrating Valentine’s Day seemed to have worked for both of you. At least you didn’t mention a frying pan in the shape of your head which is a good sign that your love for each other is 24/7 for 365 days of the year, not just for Valentine’s Day. Take care my friend. Ralph 🙂

      lol. Amazing, I never knew that perfect pillows make great coffee. Live and learn ! Well Katie, I do have a lovely Soft Kitty cushion from you. Do you want it back ? No, you can’t have it ! It’s lovely !
      Take care my friend. Ralph xox ❤
