363: Never a cross word

~Ralph’s Crossword~

Murli advises, “Think outside of the box”

~Enough To Make You Cross~

A crossword is a thinking man’s Candy Crush

“MAN ?”.  What am I saying ?  Sorry Snowflakes, I know, that’s NOT Politically Correct.  It’s NOT “thinking MAN”.   I meant to say “duh, whoever”.  That should cover all the bases !  Why am I being forced by minority Snowflake Natsis to reject sanity ?

Murli says, “I may be Austrian, but no Sieg Snowflake in my basket “

Using their reasoning, I reckon the dinosaurs died out because they listened to Snowflakes.

Snowflakes would probably die of starvation


And finally, God created Man and Woman.  Nope, God created Womxn and Bridge !

Womxn celebrates six years of marriage to a bridge

Some wedding night !  So her pregnancies will avalanche into the open after one million years.  Each baby will weigh five hundred pounds and she will probably name them Archie, Rocky and Pebbles.

Where was I ?  Oh, crossword !

~That’s Right ! Never A Cross Word Between Us~

That’s true.  Natascha and I have been together for almost 2 years and we have never had an argument.  No need !  

~Cats With Cross Words~

Sonic and Samantha ARE noisy.  What’s going on ?

TIP OF THE DAY:  Cat’s advice.  Finish an argument by licking each other’s faces (and don’t forget to click the Lick button  😉 ).

    • Oh dear ! With so many weird and wacky things going on nowadays I am sure that you are making the sign of the cross permanently dear Annette. I hope you don’t get repetitive strain injury (RSI) from doing it
      😉 Big hug. Ralph xox ❤

  1. This silly post is the best way to start the weekend! Much better than what my husband told me this morning. He said it as he was leaving so I had to look it up. AOC, a democratic Congresswoman from New York, has decided that cauliflower is a colonial vegetable and we should not eat it anymore. Community gardens in New York should grow yuccas and plantains. If you eat cauliflower, you are a racist. WHAT??? I try not to be political online, but this sounds more like a spoof.🤣 It isn’t.😞 Have a great weekend without a cross word!

    • I am so pleased that your weekend started so well dear Linda.
      Unbelievable ! Anyway, I am English, so I think I am allowed to eat cauliflower cheese without guilt 🙂
      Thank you wifi. Do have a wonderful weekend yourself. Ralph xox ❤

    • What a delightful post all around, Ralph. I would never have gotten the crossword puzzle as some answers didn’t fit. However, once I saw the solution, after a slight brain pause I got it and cracked up. How clever of you.

        Oh dear, I think that my crossword may have caused brain damage to some of my readers, but I am glad that you appreciated the solution eventually.
        Take care my friend. Ralph xox ❤


    • Merci beaucoup Georges pour tes bons mots. S’il vous plaît ayez un merveilleux dimanche mon ami. Ralph 🙂


  2. HAHAHA! Love the cat pix!
    I guess I’m half-snowflake as I fall into the gluten and mercury-free group 😀
    Maybe I should marry my teapot. 😀

    • LOL on many accounts dear Magick Mermaid 🙂
      The cats say thank you and hope you get plenty of tummy rubs 😺😺😺
      Oh well, we are not perfect 😉
      Nooooo ! Don’t marry your teapot because you will be permanently in hot water ! 🙂
      Big hug. Ralph xox ❤

  3. Ralph, love your humor, your cats, and the photo of you and Natascha! Now the puzzle! I took it seriously until nothing fit, and I knew it was a Ralph spoof. What makes me cross? Not much, I roll with the PUNCH(S). 🤣 Have a great weekend! 📚 Christine

  4. I’m glad I didn’t try to figure out the crossword at the start of the post, lol !!!
    But that’s sound advice: face licking after an argument. Be more like the cats!!
    Congrats on you and your partner’s non-argumentative two years. May there be more where that came from. Here’s to the cats !! 🙂

    • Whew ! I am so happy that you didn’t do the crossword and got brain damage while trying to solve it Stacey 😉
      I agree. Less arguing and more face licking. Works for me 😉
      Thank you my friend. I am sure that the status quo will continue.
      Have a lovely evening. Ralph xox ❤

  7. Good job on the crossword, Ralph. I like a puzzle with a lot of punch to it.

    Also impressed that you and Natascha are getting along so swimmingly. I learned early on in our marriage of 51 years that compromise was the path to happiness. Whenever we disagree on something we compromise …. and do whatever she wants.

    • I agree Al. Solving a crossword with a diminishing bowl of punch results in a crossword solution like mine 🙂
      So true ! So funny ! So ” Yes dear” ! Have I got another 50 years before I learn to compromise ? lol 🙂
      Take care friend. Ralph 🙂


  8. Excellent Crossword, Ralph. I actually get it! It’s great that you and Natascha never argue. You set a good example for Sonic and Samantha! Des

  9. Excellent crossword, Ralph!!!!
    It took me a few minutes to start thinking, and I’m no Snowflake…..a flake maybe, but no snow.
    The cats look wonderful, happy and healthy.
    Most importantly, so you and Natascha look healthy and happy.
    Congratulations on 2 years (almost) together!! 🎉🎊🎁🎀🎊
    Well, the street makes me cross when I need to get to the other side! 😀 xoxoxoxoxoxo to all the happy family in Graz!

      No, I would never call you a cornflake, even though there is a lot of corny stuff going on between us 😉
      Thank you so much for your congratulations my friend 🙂
      I didn’t know that you were a chicken ? lol 😉
      Big hug hug from all of us. Ralph xoxoxo ❤


  10. What makes me cross? Well, the people who are forcing the Manchester Museum to cover up their Egyptian mummies as they shouldn’t be seen naked. Really? omg, things in this country are getting worse. Great post, love to you both and the cats. xx

    • I agree dear Adele. That’s just plain crazy. As crazy as these idiots looking at a pile of garbage in a Modern Art Museum stating how wonderful it is. 🙄
      Take care my friend. Ralph xox ❤


  11. Your crossword puzzle gives your post that extra punch to reel in the uncommitted reader. It makes me laugh just sitting here thinking about it. And I’m not even punchy. I’m glad you’ve never had a cross word between you. That’s pretty rare I would guess. Of course, if you’re not snowflakes, fighting is unnecessary. As usual, you’ve increased my vocab. Happy flurries, my dear friend, MFR. xxx
