The Orples @ Have Moved To A New Site :

The Orples and I appreciate our dedicated followers but we fear you may be following the wrong blog. Since I re-vamped our site, our audience has dropped, and I’ve noticed a good number of ‘NEW’ fellow bloggers have chosen to follow us, but are linking to this blog instead of our new blog thread … http://orples.netย  I seldom post on this site anymore, due to time.

This is a general introduction to the face of our 'New Blog'. Please follow us there, as a rule we post everyday.

This is a general introduction to the face of our ‘New Blog‘. showing what is where, to help familiarize you with our new format. Please join us on that thread.ย  Olivia, Oscar, and I look forward to seeing you there. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We post once daily, and often use YOUR past blog posts, linked back to your original post. If you would like to participate and become a neighbor then by all means, please just link to our newย  blog and follow us there. If you are following THIS blog, please be sure we are linked on my new address so you can stay up to date on our latest Orples Adventures. Be sure and click the image to enlarge if you can’t read it, as is, on either/both blog/s), Also please note that the ‘Home’ key takes you to the beginning of our blog, and you can continuous all of our content, in spite of the category a post was placed in.ย  To comment on any particular blog along the way, just click it’s title to open, say what you will, then hit the back key to resume your journey if you like.ย  The announcement posted above would be seen from ‘home’, but not if you are visiting the neighborhood, since it was not tagged in that category.

For those of you who already know all of this, forgive me for being redundant. However, I have run into problems, and have had questions for other people’s blogs unfamiliar to me, thus out of courtesy to those who don’t know, I have taken the time to explain.ย  I want people to come see us, and be comfortable with our environment when they/you arrive.

While we’re at it, this is a good opportunity to introduce ourselves to other bloggers and redirect them to our UPDATED SITE.ย  We would love to see you there! ๐Ÿ™‚

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?

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to all of you who are bearing with us, as the Orples and I transcend one more time.ย  I am sure as time goes on, so will life, and with it, change.ย  Thanks for tagging along. I hope you’ll each be glad you did. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs to all, Love, Oscar, Olivia, and Marcy.

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.ย  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. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Orples Enjoy Izzy’s Waterfalls

Oscar just loves water. Cold water, hot water, bath water, it doesn’t matter.ย  Izzy said,’waterfall’, and Oscar asked, ‘where?’. So here we go, off to visit Isadora’s blogย  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. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Orples Miss Sonel

The orples wanted to visit Sophia since it has been awhile since we have seen her.ย  It appears she is on break. Bummer. Even Sonel’s little monkeys miss her while she is away. We’ll visit them, keepingย  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. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Orples Go To California

Rommel doesn’t need to be in a Sophomore Slump anymore. He has decided to come out and play with the orples. We are going to visit him in California where he has put together a crackerjack post from his neck of the woods.

The Orples Go To The Parade

I just knew the minute the orples saw Colline’s blog and that parade she went to, they would want to go to Canada to play. Let’s go see what’s happening in Colline’s neck of the woods.

The orples join the parade in Canada to celebrate the upcoming holidays.

The Orples Went To The Philippines.

Recently, Renxkyoko went to the Philippines. The orples had to tag along, being the world travelers that they are.ย  It is a good thing they went when they did because today the lovely islands are being hammered by Typoon Hagupit.
