It had been a very long and extraordinarily exciting day, and – like so many people who give parties – Algy found that he had tired much more rapidly than his guests. So, while they were still singing at the tops of their voices and doing crazy dances to the infinitely repetitive Surfin’ Bird, Algy slipped away quietly and found himself a secluded corner in the garden, where he could tuck his head under his wing and sleep. As he closed his eyes he thought of all his amazing Tumblr friends, who had done so much to make his Tumblr birthday party a wonderful success, and he remembered a poem by Langston Hughes, which he dedicates to you:

          Bring me all of your dreams,
          You dreamer,
          Bring me all your
          Heart melodies
          That I may wrap them
          In a blue cloud-cloth
          Away from the too-rough fingers
          Of the world.

[Algy is quoting the poem The Dream Keeper by the early 20th century American poet Langston Hughes.]

Postscript: to those who have suggested otherwise, Algy assures you that he himself drinks nothing but fruit juices and water – the whisky was strictly for his guests 🙂)


13th March 2014

It’s official: The Adventures of Algy turned 2 today!

Algy hopes very much that you will join him in his joyful celebration, and he will be posting and reblogging your wonderful contributions on Love from Algy throughout the day. Thank you XOXOXO

It’s not too late to join in the fun if you would like to – please use the submissions page on Love from Algy for uploads, or you can send him links to your own posts and he will reblog. There will be cake and ice cream for all :)))

The sun came out! And the weather forecast said that it might continue to shine for several more days. So Algy decided that he would like to build a special sandcastle on the beach, to celebrate his 2nd Anniversary on Tumblr. The only problem was, collecting sand for his castle seemed to be a very much slower and more arduous task for a fluffy bird than he had foreseen…

Don’t forget to join Algy’s celebration on Thursday 13th March 🙂

Today, Algy received a special e-card from Tumblr. It was two years ago today that Algy’s assistant created The Adventures of Algy, and started work on his blog.

And two years ago on 13th March, Algy himself made his very first appearance on Tumblr. Algy has had a great many adventures since then – rarely did a fluffy bird work so hard, or brave so many dangers! But the past year has been especially exciting, and so much of what Algy has achieved is owing to your very kind support and encouragement.

So Algy invites you all to join his party to celebrate his wonderful 2nd Anniversary on Tumblr, on Thursday 13th March. He has created a submissions page on his new sideblog Love from Algy where you can upload, or you can send him links to your own posts and he will reblog.

Algy hopes very much that you will join him in his joyful celebration, and he will post or reblog your kind contributions on Love from Algy on Thursday 13th March.

N.B. If you make a post that you want Algy to see, please be sure to let him know, or include @adventuresofalgy or @lovefromalgy in the text. He tries hard to keep up with all your wonderful posts, but sometimes he can’t help missing some.

Let’s Party :)))
