Ramana in his generosity has honoured me with The Liebster Award.

I was aware that in German “Liebster” means dearest, or favourite.  Here I become confused – I will return to this point later.

Having learned in the past by my mistakes while using the German language, I thought I better check on the meaning of the word “Liebster”.

This is what I found:

German     English

liebster        beloved
liebster        boyfriend
liebster        dearest
liebster        sweetheart

Now my mind is more than a little addled and who can blame me?
Sudden declarations of love on my blog.  His belovedHis Dearest. His Sweetheart.  Any one would be enough to bowl a girl over, if she heard it in a romantic situation surrounded by soft lights and sweet music….

But to be his BOYFRIEND! 😯 That shock was more than enough to set my heart going.  It took half a can of my spray to get it back on even keel.  I didn’t think he swung that way.

Where were my Toyboys, my protectors when I needed them.  Ashok, Nick, Magpie, Conrad, Mayo, Paul, Will and Tee O, I need your help.  What am I to do?

As for the first point… The Bounder; the Rascal has conferred the honour on FOUR other women:- Gaelikaa’s Diary, Padmum, Delirious and Silver Fox.

The Cad.

I should have listened to my mother!

I am off to lie down in a darkened room…..

I can’t even offer the award to my Toyboys listed above because their wives might not appreciate having me around for extra curricular distractions! 🙁

    Hey, Cuz! We don’t have to put up with this effrontery. You want me to dot his eye, cross his teeth??

    Of all the things. Affection. I can’t believe it!

    Grannymar, I’m concerned. I checked into Rummuser’s blog entry on this at and realized that not only did he give it to five women, it was given to him as one of five recipients. You see what we have here, don’t you? It’s a pyramid scheme! A regular Ponzi Scheme of affection.

    Who knows where loose affection accelerating exponentially might lead?? It could be the end of uncivilization as we know it!

    We, the Toyboys Guild members, need to respond.

    Conrad – Thanks, Cuz. I am glad to have you on board to protect me.

    Tee O – A pyramid scheme? Do you think Swami Ramana’s Ashram will now be in Egypt and not in the mountains?

    Delirious – ‘Romeo Ramana’ kinda suits! 😆

  4. Mayo

    It’s OK Grannymar , polygamy is legal in India now.
    He’s following his heart!
    Or is this polygamy legality stuff just hear-say?!!!!
    The Mormoms at least stick with the opposite sex, but to combine, I’m with Old Foss, it’s UNCILIVILIZED.

    I agree with you that Rummuser is everything that you say. How come you left me out of the toyboy gang?

    I suspect that Rummuser is now a Rumuser.

  6. Red Top

    I agree Rummy, Grannymar did you bad. Up to this point in time you were the “lead dog” of the Toyboys.
    I will have to cut Grannymar off rom the wine. She has been hitting pretty hard later. her mind has gone “fuzzy”.

    Mayo – He shared his heart with everyone! Does he have another one? You telling me he is fickle?

    Ramana – If you are all the things I say…. should you be on the list? I think I need to sleep on it.

    Red Top – That was my hair AND you were the one who made it fuzzy!

    Will – Glad to know I am safe!

    Nick – I don’t think I want to go down that road! Though it might answer a question or two! 😉

  8. The Old Fossil

    Grannymar and Nick, I looked up Toyboy in the Fossil Universal Translator and it came out StudenHunken in German. The complication is that it had a picture accompanying it and the picture was of Ramana.

  9. Grannymar Post author

    Tee O – The Fossil Universal Translator is a little like mine without the pictures! The ones in my head are bad enough. 😯

    Methinks perhaps Ramana is becoming a politician! One phrase fits all. Such a sly old dog he is (in a good way).

  11. Grannymar Post author

    Shackman – Welcome to the fun. Ramana is a man of many words and few, to suit every situation. 😆

    Alice – You were almost next door to him on your travels through India. He lives in Pune and would award you and hubby a very warm welcome!
