First off let us say this, I already feel blessed to be a part of a spectacular community that is quickly growing, as the orples and I keep stumbling on new blogs, and wonderful people. As we travel through cyberspace, we find ourselves exploring the world, tromping through the wilderness, visiting our neighbor’s domains. Sometimes, I find it hard to squeeze in my own adventures. Believe me, Inspiration is not a problem for us—by any means. The world is at our ‘twigtips’.
One of Sonel’s lovely friends meets the orples.
The above conversation came about as the result of a delightfully surprising ping-back my friend, Sophia (in Africa), created on a thread I began, involving a fly. Mr. Fly looked so cool sitting on that beautiful flower in ‘Sonel’s blog‘.
Meet Mr. Fly. This is where this story started.
and then, this happened ….. After Sophia invited us to come and stroll through her blog, the orples met Mr. Fly (above), only to be told to go away. Sophia stepped right up to the plate in the orple’s defense. She and her friends told Mr. Fly a thing or two, as you can tell by the conversation in the first picture with Ms. Barbet. I’m suspect this story isn’t over yet. No matter, while we waiting for that tale to unfold, if you would like to visit the neighbors, to see what our friends are up to, you’ll find the orples have been globe trotting, enjoying a variety of adventures, worldwide.
Someone 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.
Anyway, back to our original story; Sophia told the story of Mr. Fly and his bad manners to the fine folks at Michelle’s Pet Challenge, and wha-lah! Sophia not only honored me with mega-links—I might add—she fulfilled her weekly critter challenge—two birds, one stone. Sophia really outdid herself, too. I am still awestruck, and grateful for the effort she put into her beautiful post. I suspect she had fun doing it on her end. I know I’ve enjoyed the conversations on our end. If you would like to join the orples as they explore our world, prey tell through a comment on my of my blog posts. Leave me a link to your blog. Introduce yourselves. Check out what we’re doing, already. Read my other posts to follow the conversations, through post content, and comments to find out what we’re up to. Be nosy. All are welcome.
