Welcome new followers! Algy is painting a picture for you 🙂

Algy has had a wonderful couple of weeks, with his adventures trending on Tumblr, articles about him in the local press, his books selling locally to visitors to the area, and lots of interest in his adventures generally. So he is reposting this special GIF – one of his all-time favourites – to welcome all his new followers and thank all his loyal friends. Thank you all very much indeed – Algy sends you all lots of surprisingly fluffy hugs xoxo

Algy is also trying to work on the illustrations for his second book, which is due to be published at the end of November, but he thinks maybe he will have to ask his assistant for some help with that 🙂

Algy perched on a rock in the evening sun and thought about life, the universe, fame and the ocean. There were few things he enjoyed more than watching the sea splash up against the rock and wondering whether it would manage to sprinkle him with sticky, salty water. His wee moment of fame on Tumblr was just like the sparkling splash of the waves – a lovely, momentary burst of bright spray that might perhaps reach him, but was gone in an instant. But fortunately – unlike the attention of the human world – the sea never stopped, and Algy knew that he could return to the rock any time he wanted to, and watch it again. And sometimes the splashes would reach him 🙂

With his blog unexpectedly trending on Tumblr, it had been such an
exciting day that Algy felt in need of a calming influence. So when the
sun put in a reluctant appearance in the mid evening, Algy flew down to
the beach and perched beside the water. It was a calm night, and the
waves washed in and out in a leisurely way, entirely unconcerned with
the fame or fortunes of a fluffy bird.

As he observed the constant motion
of the sea, it seemed to Algy that the mighty ocean was always
“trending”, and his own wee moment of fame was entirely insignificant in
comparison – a speck in the ocean, you might say 🙂

Algy leaned back on the barnacled rock in the fading golden
light, and watched the sun sinking slowly down into the cloud bank as he listened
to the waves repeating their ancient song. He felt happy to think that
the waves would still be washing against his rock long, long after the
world had forgotten that a fluffy bird once perched there, sending his adventures out around the world through the mysterious Tumblr ether…
