The post bird brought Algy a beautiful card full of dazzling light, sent by his new friend funnyful in Sweden. So Algy put on the wonderful top hat which Tumblr had given him on April Fools’ Day, flew up into the nearest tree, and held the card up to the sky, so that the lovely Swedish light could illuminate his Highland home.

Thank you so much, dear Charlotta xoxo Algy loves your card and your beautiful, sparkling light, and he loves your handwriting too πŸ™‚ Even the stamp is pretty!

p.s. Algy says he thinks maybe he is the original Tumblr Pro :)) He thanks the Tumblr gods kindly for the loan of the hat, and asks them “Can I keep it, please?”


When Algy got home, he was very excited to find a beautiful card waiting for him. It was addressed “To Algy”, and brought him a lovely squirrel who had been sent by his friend Karen to travel all the way to the Scottish Highlands from Ohio in the USA. Algy had heard of flying squirrels, but he had never before met one that had flown across a mighty ocean… However, here it was, without a doubt, and Algy guessed that it would now need a tree to live in. The weather was unpleasantly damp and windy, but the squirrel had lovely thick fur and didn’t seem to mind, so Algy gave it a wee tour of the local trees, so that it could choose one for itself. The squirrel brought him greetings from the United States, and a strange message: “You’re One Cool Dude”. Algy was puzzled. He was undoubtedly cool – in fact the wind felt bitterly cold today – but he wasn’t quite sure whether that was what Karen had meant πŸ™‚

Thank you, Karen – Algy sends you a special furry squirrel hug which he has just learned from his new friend πŸ™‚
