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… 😀

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 Birthday Algy!

As you may have heard, it’s Algy’s 5th birthday today…

So some of Algy’s fluffy friends got together and presented him with a bouquet of beautiful pink roses, and a pretty little windmill, as they thought that – given the weather typical in the wild West Highlands of Scotland – it would have plenty of occasion to go round and round 🙂

Happy 5th Tumblr Birthday Algy!

Algy is holding a very special Tumblr birthday party TODAY on his sideblog @lovefromalgy​.

He has already received lots and lots of wonderful contributions and messages from his amazing Tumblr friends – in fact, he has received so many that the party will be continuing for many hours yet!

So Algy hopes that you will all join in the celebrations and submit your own images to share with all Algy’s Tumblr friends 🙂

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 🙂

Announcing Algy’s 5th Birthday Party…

adventuresofalgy:

On Monday 13th March 2017, Algy will celebrate his 5th birthday.

That’s 5 years of Algy’s Adventures on Tumblr!

Five years is a long, long time for a fluffy bird – even for one who is surprisingly fluffy. When Algy started his adventures in March 2012, he never dreamed that he would still be adventuring in 2017!

This could never have happened without YOU – all of Algy’s wonderful Tumblr friends and followers 🙂

So Algy is holding a very special Tumblr birthday party on his sideblog @lovefromalgy​ on Monday, and he hopes that you will all join in the celebrations and submit your own images to share with all Algy’s friends 🙂

Algy apologises for celebrating his birthday on a working day, but hopes that you will all be able to join the party at some time on Monday.

When? MONDAY 13TH MARCH 2017, from 12 noon GMT until late…

Where? On Algy’s own sideblog @lovefromalgy

How to join in the celebrations? Submit one or more images, or post on your own blog and send Algy a link – your own original work, please. And of course come along and enjoy the fun on the day, and late into the night 🙂

Algy will also be running a small retrospective of his five years of amazing adventures – on his main blog @adventuresofalgy – on Sunday 12th March and on Monday 13th March.

One of the guests at Algy’s Magical Midwinter Star party decided to try a special dance which is described in Algy’s book The Magical Midwinter Star 🙂

The first person who REBLOGS this GIF together with A CAPTION INCLUDING THE NAME OF THAT DANCE from Algy’s book will win a signed paperback copy of The Magical Midwinter Star.

Sorry – but the three people who have already won copies of the book by entering the Photo Challenge may not win another copy. Just one book per person 🙂

There are still 2 prizes left in the Photo Challenge at the time of posting this GIF…

And if you have not yet joined Algy’s Magical Midwinter Star party over on @lovefromalgy, hurry on over… 🙂
