Today’s Post Dec. 18, 2014

Today’s post is really on my other blog and you really should check out the links. This little watch is so cool. I had no idea! I am suspecting you didn’t either.  You can follow the links on my new blog to Amazon’s site, right straight to this watch. Look for the green text or click on the caption in the photo.

To check out the watch go to and pick click the screen caption. You won't regret it!

Olivia and Oscar each had to have one. Lord help us, the orples are going hi-tech on  me now. 🙂

Tonight’s Post 12.17.14 —-

As was true last night, tonight’s post is on if you haven’t seen it already. Please note to open each individual post, click on that post’s title. To return to toggle mode to view all of my posts continually, use the orange (text) title key (Orples) in the top left of my blog page. That is my ‘home’ page key.



Be sure and follow the links to Ute’s blog where there are all kinds of cool ideas for last minute Christmas treats. If you have time, and don’t know Ute already, you should really check out her blog. The lady has some fantastic ideas and she is generous enough to share them with us all. You’ll love her posts. Go see. 🙂 LOL—I think Olivia, being the bossy little thing that she can be, is rubbing off on me.

I am still having problems with a few links, so if you want  to be following me, please be sure we are linked on your end, and I will do the same on this end. Again, I thank you all for you patience while I get these blog sites behaving correctly.

I was happy to have stumbled onto his blog sometime ago and I hope you will be too. AD Martin is one of our neighbors.

New Site — Orples.Net

Today’s post (to be posted later today) will be on I am weaning away from this site to pick up a private Domain under GoDaddy. I am still trying to figure out all of the ‘bells and whistles’, but while I’m fumbling around, trying to learn what’s, where, when, and how, I figure I can be redirecting traffic and maybe some of you brighter seasoned bloggers might have some suggestions.

The face of my new web site. What do you think?

The face of my new web site. What do you think?

Please tell me what you like, don’t like, etc. Talk to me, guys. You are my audience. With out you, why bother? Your opinions are important and appreciated—and so is your patience.

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to all of you who are bearing with us, as the Orples and I transcend one more time.  I am sure as time goes on, so will life, and with it, change.  Thanks for tagging along. I hope you’ll each be glad you did. 🙂 Hugs to all, Love, Oscar, Olivia, and Marcy.

The Orple Update Report

Many of you are aware that I have been trying to work my way through switching my WordPress Account over to be hosted by GoDaddy, complete with a new website address. I am making some changes on my website, including a facelift while I am making my other site adjustments. It is/has been a journey. In addition to the aesthetic changes, you will notice that I have posted some Amazon links on the side of my posts for your shopping convenience. Shopping through these links helps me survive at no cost to you … hint, hint…We all have to make a living, sad, but true.

I'm getting there! If you want to check out my upcoming NEW site please feel free to visit me over there (link given in text below).

I’m getting there! If you want to check out my upcoming NEW site please feel free to visit me over there (link given in text below).

I am still trying to reconnect with my old followers and many of you are already linked to me on my new site as opposed to here. Our ‘Orple Adventures‘ games will continue on my new blog with a page having been added to give our neighbors a direct link to their own web/blog sites—see ‘The Rules of the Game‘ (top right of page under the title block of my new blog). Don’t forget to like, like, like, away as you peruse the content of that site if you will please. Likes are loved (and appreciated) by Olivia, Oscar, and myself, have no doubt.

For now, while I am working out kinks on that site, I am continuing to post on this account (my original WordPress account).  I still need to figure out how to update my posts since December 5th, to show up on that sight. When the dates catch up in both places, you will know I was successful. In the meantime, today  is a good day to officially launch  

Today should prove to be a memorable date to introduce the sister site since it is 12/13/14 … It will be the next century before we see the sequences begin again with 1/2/3 in 2103.

The Orples Find a Raspberry Patch

It is such a beautiful day, the orples decided to enjoy the Breezes at Dawn, over on Robin’s blog. While waiting for Robin to show up, they have discovered a raspberry patch. Yum! Harvey, the dragonfly appears to be a generous fellow. He obviously doesn’t mind sharing his bounty.

The Orples meet Harvey.

While those guys are chomping away, you are welcome to join us as we visit the neighbors and chat with them about their Orple Adventures. And if you would like to join our fun, let me know via the comments, and I’ll add your name to my list. 🙂 In the meantime, we hope you enjoy your visit today.

The Orples Go To Church

Okay, I lied, I admit it. Church is an understatement when you compare your little neighborhood gathering place to the breathtaking architecture to be found in this cathedral. Okay, so I lied again, since the orples are looking at a model of the cathedral, not the cathedral itself. If you want to see photos of the real deal then you’ll have to check out Amy, who thinks The World is a Book, and admire some of the spectacular photographs she has shared on her blog.  This photo was pulled from part 2 of her theme. Be sure to check out part 1 as well, while you are visiting Amy.

As for those of you who are unfamiliar with the orples, Oscar and Olivia, and where they’ve been over the past month or two, you may want to visit the neighbors. Who knows? Maybe you might like to join in on the fun yourselves? Just peruse past articles, and you’ll soon find out what we are up to in Orpleland. 🙂

The Orples Enjoy Izzy’s Waterfalls

Oscar just loves water. Cold water, hot water, bath water, it doesn’t matter.  Izzy said,’waterfall’, and Oscar asked, ‘where?’. So here we go, off to visit Isadora’s blog  It really is a lovely waterfall, I think on that we can agree.

While the orples are swimming, we may has well visit the neighbors and see what else Olivia and Oscar have been up to. 🙂

The Orples Miss Sonel

The orples wanted to visit Sophia since it has been awhile since we have seen her.  It appears she is on break. Bummer. Even Sonel’s little monkeys miss her while she is away. We’ll visit them, keeping  them company, until Sophia returns to her little corner of the world and picks up where she left off.

While the Orples are in Africa, the rest of us can peruse the neighborhood and check out their other activities of the recent past. 🙂
