Algy’s “Best of 2012” Selection of Adventures

As the year draws to a close, Algy has been busy putting together selections of his favourite Tumblr “Adventures” from 2012. He hopes that you may enjoy looking back over some of them too.

He has divided his favourites into three groups, but they are not always so easy to categorize. For example, some of the GIF posts include poems, and vice versa.

Algy would love to know which of his 2012 Adventures you liked best, whether it is included in his own selections or not. He says please send a message to tell him which was your favourite, and he’ll send you a nice reply 🙂

Algy Receives Some Christmas Presents


Heavy sleet was falling outside, so Algy thought it best to open his Christmas presents indoors. He wasn’t really quite sure what all of them were for, so he consulted his wise new friend from Vancouver, who expressed a very definite opinion about the blue things. Despite his friend’s assurances, however, Algy still had some doubts …

With very special thanks to Stephanie XX

Feliz Navidad! Happy Krismas! Feliz Natal! Счастливого Рождества! Buon Natale! Veselé vánoce! Gleðileg jól! May your days be merry and bright! XXX
