Thank You All!

Adventures-of-Algy-140318-A.jpg

Finding himself in an unusually odd environment for a fluffy bird, Algy selected a handy if rather uncomfortable perch, and opening his beak as widely as he could, he started to sing an ENORMOUS “THANK YOU!” song to all his incredible Tumblr friends who helped to make his 6th birthday so enjoyable yesterday – especially those who submitted wonderful images for his Amazing Tumblr Birthday Party on his sideblog @lovefromalgy, but also the many friends who watched and enjoyed the party, who made kind comments on his own and other people’s posts, and who sent him personal messages, good wishes and congratulations.

Algy was delighted to receive many contributions from brand new friends, who he hopes to know better very soon. But of course he was also thrilled and touched by the fantastic contributions from many of his long-standing friends, some of whom he has know for almost as long as he has been on Tumblr. So he sings at the top of his voice:

THANK YOU ALL VERY, VERY, MUCH!

And he hopes that you can hear him all around the world…

Algy is now looking forward eagerly to his 7th year of adventures, and if you are wondering what he is doing in such a peculiar environment, he suggests that you follow his forthcoming adventure, which is just about to commence… 😀

Algy’s Balloon Helicopter

Algy received several new toys for his birthday, but his favourite was the balloon helicopter 🙂

Algy hopes you are all enjoying his birthday as much as he is! He thanks all his wonderful friends who have sent messages and greetings and contributions to his Amazing Tumblr Birthday Party on his sideblog @lovefromalgy and sends you all lots of his very fluffiest hugs xoxo

And if you have not yet had a chance to join in, the party is still in full swing 🙂

Banana Splits, Anyone?

And, in due course, the moment which all Algy’s guests had been waiting for finally arrived…

There are banana splits for all Algy’s friends at Algy’s birthday party – with homemade vanilla ice cream, fresh banana and mango, dark chocolate and pecan nuts…

If you haven’t joined Algy’s Amazing Tumblr Birthday Party yet, hurry on over to – you’re not too late 🙂

Happy Birthday, Algy!

Happy Birthday Algy !!!

The morning of Algy’s birthday was rather dull and damp, and the Scotch mist was hovering over the hills, threatening to make the world a great deal damper, but Algy didn’t care. It was his birthday, and time to celebrate…

As all his friends know, Algy is a mature and discerning fluffy bird who delights in reading poetry, but he also loves toys, so he was thrilled to find many colourful and silly things to play with among his birthday gifts 🙂

Algy sends you all lots of very fluffy hugs, and invites you all to join his joyful birthday celebrations over on his sideblog @lovefromalgy xoxo

Happy 5th Birthday, Algy!

The great day has arrived! It is Algy’s 5th Tumblr Birthday.

Algy’s surprisingly fluffy 5th birthday party will start at midday, over on his sideblog @lovefromalgy

It is YOU, Algy’s wonderful Tumblr friends and followers, who have made these five years of Algy’s adventures possible, and YOU who have kept Algy going through good times and bad. Thank you all so very much!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all the thousands of almost-invisible followers who Algy does not really know but who see his posts and leave notes from time to time…

And a VERY SPECIAL HUGE THANK YOU to those hundreds of amazing friends and followers who Algy has come to know and love over the past five years – who frequently “like” Algy’s posts, leave kind comments, and send Algy messages. 

Algy loves you all and sends you all lots of surprisingly fluffy birthday hugs, and hopes that you will be able to join in his birthday celebrations xoxo

To take part in Algy’s birthday party on @lovefromalgy, submit one or more images, or post on your own blog and send Algy a link (your own original work, please). If you post on your own blog, please be sure to let Algy know, as the Tumblr notification system for being mentioned on another blog doesn’t work…

And of course come along to @lovefromalgy and enjoy the fun whenever you can. This very special party is likely to run on into the night here in Scotland (GMT).

Submissions can be made at any time from now until the end of the party. Here’s the link to the Submit form again: again:http://lovefromalgy.tumblr.com/submit

To celebrate, Algy is also running a small retrospective of his 5 years of amazing adventures, on his main blog @adventuresofalgy. This was originally planned for just two days, but Algy has now decided to spread it over 5 days – one day for each year 🙂

Algy thanks all his wonderful Tumblr friends from the bottom of his surprisingly fluffy heart for making this birthday so very special! It was undoubtedly his best birthday ever, and his best Tumblr party ever, and it was all because of you and your amazing contributions to his party 🙂 He sends you all the fluffiest of fluffy hugs.

Thank you, thank you, thank you xoxoxo

The afternoon light was fading fast and it was beginning to get dark, so Algy decided it was high time for refreshments… A crowd of furry and fluffy friends gathered round to watch Algy’s birthday candles burn down, eagerly waiting for the homemade chocolate brownies (with cherries!) and banana splits to be served 🙂

There’s plenty of cake and ice cream for all, so if you haven’t joined Algy’s party yet, hurry on over to @lovefromalgy – everybody is having a wonderful time!

And for those kind friends who were wondering, it’s not too late to join in, as the party is set to run long into the night 🙂 Just use the lovefromalgy submission form or send Algy a link to a post on your blog.
