The Orples and The Fly

Olivia and Oscar were strolling through Sonel’s blog and came across the most beautiful flower. But alas, this ill tempered fly who didn’t want to be bothered with pesky orples was already there. Just wait until Olivia tells Sophia how rude Mr. Fly was. I bet she will set him straight.

Some please tell Mr. Fly that he might actually have fun, if he'd relax long enough to stop and play. He seems to be so serious.

In the meantime if anyone would like to so over to Sonel’s post and set that fly straight for us, click here. I’m sure Olivia and Oscar will appreciate the support. I’m sure once Mr. Fly realizes the orples only want to have fun, he’ll ease up anyway. We’ll see. If you want to see what else Olivia and Oscar ar up to, check out the category—‘Visiting The Neighbors‘ on my blog.

The Orples and The Model Bridge

As the Orples and I have been traveling around, with one eye on other people’s blogs, Colline has given us permission to play on her turf. She told me to come check out what she’s up to, and we did. You should come see the model bridge she built for her class.

Oscar waits for the glue to dry, while Olive rushes him along.  She appears to be in a hurry.

Olivia is hoping you guys will enjoy Colline’s hard work as much as I did. Plus, Oscar is finally getting to do something useful. If you want to see what else the orples are up to, check out their Category, Visiting the Neighbors, on my blog page. And please, feel free to re-blog. Also, if you’d like to participate, just speak up. I’m sure the orples will find plenty of places to play on everyone’s blogs. Actually, when I read the article that went with this, Colline was admiring this bridge, not building it,  but don’t tell Olivia. Sometimes she gets so excited, she gets her stories mixed up. Please forgive her for her hastiness.

[New Post] The Orple’s New Friend

Today, Olivia and Oscar found out about Sonel’s monkeys. They were a bit tiffed with me for not having introduced them to Mr. Monkey earlier, but they do realize that all things come with good time.  I need to ask Sonel if this little Monkey has a name so I can extend formal introductions. But for now, it’s Mr. Monkey and the orples, playing together, in Africa on Sonel’s blog (link below). She has some fun little critter’s to play with, So I’m sure we will be visiting her often. In the meantime, tick, tock. Gotta Run. It ain’t easy being an orple-keeper, you know. 🙂

Okay,  Sonel,  I neglected to copy the link from which I pulled this particular photo on your blog. If you would like to direct me back to the source, I’ll share THAT link. For now, THIS link is directing others to enjoy your monkeys via another post from your blog. I get side-tracked trying to keep up with Olivia and Oscar. You would have to be an orple-keeper to understand the frustrations, I imagine.  But we try.:)

[New Post] Return Address

Yesterday, as an exercise suggested by the Daily Post, I wrote Olivia and Oscar a letter, asking their opinion relative to inviting other bloggers to join our adventures by allowing us to tag along in some of their photographs. Today, Olivia is responding to my idea by writing back. Check it out—. OOProofreading110814 Dear Marcy, Oscar and I have discussed your idea. We would love to meet new people and travel the world with you through cyberspace. Please tell our audience to let us know if they want to allow us to play in their mud puddles. We can pull their photos through screenshots, then we’ll hop into their scenery, giving them the credit for their environment and a link to the original source of the information. I love the idea. I hope they do, too. And of course, Oscar and I love the idea of using ping-backs and re-blogs to blog-hop. How fun would that be? Win-win for everybody. We’re on board with you Marcy. We’ll spread the word. Thanks for asking. See you in Orpleland, Love, Olivia (and Oscar)
