I am reorganizing it so it flows sequentially and is easier to read. The above cartoon is to illustrate what this story is about and that is encouraging parents and care-givers to read to small children. The story and illustrations of The Lady bugs that give picnics are reorganized by me Gloria Poole as author and illustrator to simplify its on line readability.

The lizard happens upon the lady bugs setting out their tea party picnic, and screeches to a halt.

The lizard scares the sea gull and it takes flight, and the lady bugs freeze in their tracks [because lizards eat lady bugs] .

Fuschia Rabbit Hurrying to Tea party; cartoon by Gloria Poole
This is fuschia rabbit hurrying to the tea party. She's hurrying because she's late and fears she will miss the tea party altogether.

She's wearing her best fascinator and of course, her bright white tail.

She's got that sort of turned down lip, because well, she so much wanted the Lady Bugs to like her;

and to come to her carrot patch party later on in the year.

Cartoon-created by Gloria Poole; Oct 2013; and it is named "redcap monkey"


 The red cap monkey was invited to the lady bug picnic,
 which is why he is wearing his best cap. 
And he was ambling along on all fours as monkeys do, 
and the hot sun was beaming on his behind. 
 And well, wearing that fur coat and that cap, he was getting too hot. 
So he has a frownie face.  And then he just stopped a minute;
 and had a talk with himself 
and he said : "well, it's just a bunch of ole lady bugs.
They probably won't notice if I don't show up. " 
And then he got to the jungle edge and he decided that he would just miss
 the tea party and head to the jungle where it is nice and cool
 and he could play in the trees, and that is what he did. 
And he missed the tea party /picnic altogether.

Cartoon blue kangaroo admiring flowers dancing, created by Gloria Poole; Nov 2013

 The  blue mama kangaroo with her baby in her pouch is also headed to the Lady bug picnic. Of course, the Lady Bugs were all excited to hear about the new baby kangaroo, and they sent a special invitation to mama kangaroo and wrote in fine and fancy calligraphy PLEASE bring baby too, fearing mama kanga might leave the wee one home with dad. So, the mama kangaroo was thrilled! After all, she had been cooped up in that house with that new baby for a while now, and having a reason to go somewhere was good news to her.

She was bounding along on those gigantic legs of hers,and lo and behold, she saw beside the path dancing flowers!

They were holding hands and forming a 'can-can' line and singing happily. Well, she was astonished.

But what was even more astonishing was she saw her own wee one give an A-OK signal to the flowers. Well, mama kangaroo just stopped in her tracks to witness her own baby taking notice of the surroundings and responding to it. "This is something to write in my baby book for sure--

aw, shucks, why didn't I bring my cell phone with the camera?',she thought to herself. .


The Lady Bugs invited Raymond Reindeer and he sent back his reply with a cartoon of himself that he drew in red ink to show them how happy he was at being invited.

Since Fuschia Rabbit, Red Cap Monkey, Blue Kangaroo and baby didn't get to the first picnic the Lady Bugs had, and since the giant lizard did, the Lady Bugs decided to schedule another picnic in a safer place than The Meadow. They put their heads together and came up with the idea that probably the Fantasy Forest would appeal more to Red Cap Monkey, Fuschia Rabbit and Blue Kangaroo, so they scheduled the Twin Mushrooms pavilion for the day of the picnic.

Pg. 5
Then they hand wrote invitations, because hand-written invitations are waaaaaaaaay better than ordinary typed ones and are more fitting and proper etiquette.

Here is one of their invitations:

cartoon-invitation-ladybug-picnic-gloriapoole-Nov-2013
cartoon-invitation-ladybug-picnic-by- gloriapoole-Nov-2013


So they sent the invitations by U S mail and they put one on the web for those whose addresses they didn't know. They included a set of directions with it instead of a map,even though the invitation said "map included". They reasoned that anyone who couldn't read would probably feel uncomfortable at their picnic anyway,so written instructions were more informative.



.
>cartoon-directions-to-ladybug-picnic-gloriapoole-2013
cartoon-directions-to-ladybug-picnic-gloriapoole-2013


They sent along a photo of Fantasy Forest to help them recognize it,


just in case some weren't local or had never spent any time in the forest. They even told them whom to R.S.V.P too. R.S.V.P. means repondez s'il vous plait in French

which means in English please respond whether or not you plan to attend. They wrote that Lady Octavia Bug could be called

if one of the guests got lost on the way to Fantasy Forest.


"Now, then..." thought the Lady Bugs. "We have planned carefully. The Twin Mushrooms will be a much safer place

for a picnic than the open meadow. And we have invited properly those we want to attend, and have sent directions.

Now, then we must begin to plan the menu.

"


Pg. 6

When Lady Octavia got home, she called up Fuchsia Rabbit on her cell phone to ask if she received the invitation and directions. Ring Ring! Fuchsia Rabbit answered. "Fuchsia Rabbit, we missed you at the picnic and have sent you an invitation to another picnic , with directions. " begins Lady Octavia.

Fuchsia Rabbit replies, "yes, those came in the mail. Thank you very much. "

"Well, I don't want to pry but I was wondering why you missed the first picnic? " asks Lady Octavia, "perhaps you didn't know the way?"

"Oh, no dear, I know the way. We rabbits always know our way around to the places where carrots and leafy greens are, "replied Fuschia Rabbit, "but I think you might laugh when I tell you what happened. "

"Well, possibly, because I was quite worried Lone Wolf had eaten you! Not a laughing matter at all, " says Lady Octavia.

"Lone Wolf? I don't know him, Is he new in The Meadow?" asks Fuchsia.

"How can you not know him? He is ferocious. And those teeth--why he could probably swallow you in one bite,"says Lady Octavia obviously stressed.

"Well, I don't think I have ever met him,"replies Fushcia.

"i will zing over to you right now a photo I took of him once on my cell phone when we Lady Bugs say him approaching. You must always know your enemies," says Lady Octavia, and she hits the green send button on her cellphone. Zing!

Fushcia looks at her text messages and says ,"that photo arrived, and you are quite right. Those teeth of his are scary. I will certainly be on the look-out for him from now on."

"But Fushcia, you didn't tell me why you didn't come to the first picnic., " replies Lady Octavia.

"Now, don't laugh because it's absolutely true. But my built in wi-fi just went berserk that day," says Fuchsia.

"Your built in wi-fi?" asks Lady Octavia.

"My whiskers!" answer Fuchsia Rabbit, "my whiskers are antennas, surely you knew that about rabbits?"

"Well, maybe. But I didn't know you picked the wi-fi signal on them!" says Lady Octavia rather excitedly, "who knew?"

Fuchsia said, " well, when that Satnav, or GlossNost Satellite goes over my head, my whiskers tingle at first, then vibrate furiously. I get mixed signals with the planet earth, and I have to just stop in my tracks. It becomes confusing to me. "

"Why, you poor thing. I can only imagine what that must be like. I have tiny antennas too," says Lady Octavia, "but unfortunately I I don't get free wi-fi on them. I am not even sure what a satellite is."

"I have a photo of one I saved from the news.Can you receive multi-media on your cell phone?'asks Fuchsia," I will send it to you."

"Sure, can't everybody?"replies Lady Octavia.

Fuchsia send the photo.

"Oh, my! look at that! "says Lady Octavia as she studies the satellite,"is that how it looks over the earth?"

Fuchsia replies, "yes, I think it is over the ocean in that photo in the news. it is really quite amazing because it sends T.V. and wifi signals and it can jam signals too," says Fuchsia.

"What!," exclaims Lady Octavia with fury rising, "maybe that is what happens to my home wi-fi?"

"it is possible. I read all about in the BBC news and saved the photo just in case I ever saw it, I would recognize it", says Fuchsia Rabbit.

"Can you see into outer space?asks Lady Octavia.

"We rabbits are nocturnal creatures so we have very good night vision, "replies Fushcia,"and the satellite passes over head and sort of glows so I imagine that it is it."

"hmm, what to think?asks Lady Octavia, "but I have so many tasks to accomplish before the next picnic."

"Maybe I will wrap my whiskers in tin foil before heading to the Twin Mushrooms pavilion," says Fushcia Rabbit as she rings off.

Lady octavia laughs heartily, "that would be a sight to behold for certain! Why it's a hysterical image in my mind to think on it, "says Lady Octavia.

Pg 7.

Lady Octavia calls up Red Cap Monkey on his cell phone. "Red, we Ladies were sad that you didn't make to the first picnic. Did you get lost, dear? asks Lady Octavia.

Red Cap Monkey replied, "Ms Octavia, I was on my way there. And the sun was roasting my behind! I got all sweaty and then I saw the banana tree and the fruit there, and I could almost taste it. And I thought how cool the banana tree forest is, and I just went there instead."

Lady Octavia said, "oh", rather sad that their picnic couldn't compete with a banana tree.

Red quickly realized he had hurt her feelings, so he said, "Lady Octavia, there's more to it. I guess I just don't like to admit it but its' true. I was scared."

"Scared of what, Red?' asks Lady Octavia.

"Well. to tell you the truth I am not sure what that thing in the sky is, but it scares me", answers Red.

"Oh, do you mean the satellite? asks Lady Octavia.

"No, I mean that thing that looks like a mechanical bird. Some people call it a drone, but I call it bombardier bird ,"replies Red Cap.

"Bombadier Bird?", asks Lady Octavia, " i don't think I have seen that. Fuchsia Rabbit just told me about the satellite about ten minutes ago. I guess I have been out-of-the-loop on electronics."

"That bombardier bird is an attack thing in disguise. I am sure of it," says Red.

"How can you be so sure?, asks Lady Octavia.

"I saw it with my own two eyes as it nose-dived, scooped up something, took flight with its mechanical wings going 90 miles a minute," says Red.

"Well, birds do have wings you know, and 90 miles a minute is not so fast for a bird," replies Lady Octavia.

"Ms Octavia, that is no bird! If you ever saw it you would know what I mean," replies Red Cap.

"Do you have a picture of it by any chance?, asks Lady Octavia," I would certainly like to see what you are talking about."

"Yes, I photographed it on my cell phone, thinking this is news, that maybe I should send to the newspaper,"replies Red Cap.

"Well. zing it over to me right now please. You have stoked my curiosity, "says Lady Octavia.

So, Red Cap found the photo on his cell phone and clicked the green send button. "There, I've sent it, " he said,"Let me know if you don't receive it."

"Thanks, Red Cap, it arrived. It is sort of odd looking, isn't it? asks Lady Octavia.

"Yes, I am convinced it is not real, but mechanical spy," says Red.

"Oh, before I forget. There is one other thing to watch for on the path to Fantasy Forest," says Lady Octavia. "it is not so much a risk to you because of your size, but of course, if they smashed into you, they could break some bones or something, so you have to be aware. Also, you can help spread the word. I am talking about the lady bug smashers," says Lady Octavia.

"I have never seen those, "replies Red Cap.

"That might not be their real name, but it is what I call them. If they run over a lady bug, it's all over but the crying," replies Lady Octavia. "i'll zing a photo over to you right now."

"That looks like little humans to me, Lady Octavia, " replies Red, "they are not dangerous."

"Not the little humans, silly. That thingamajig they are riding on," replies Lady Octavia.

"Oh, yea, I see. I almost overlooked that, looking at the beautiful little people,"says Red Cap," you know humans like monkeys, and monkeys like humans. I am not afraid of them" says Red.

"Those lady bug smashers could land you in the hospital if they hit you, and they absolutely send lady bugs to the morgue", replies Lady Octavia, "you have to be careful around them. I saw them the other day on my way to the Fantasy Forest. "

The Twin Mushroom Towers of the Fantasy Forest are where the up-coming Lady Bug Picnic is to take place, and it has a hostel that has a family room for out of town company. Mr and Mrs. Orange Bear are owners of the"Welcome Home" hostel.



As Lady Octavia Bug approaches to see what it's accommodations look like, and how much it costs, she finds Mr and Mrs Orange Bear sitting on the grassy knoll.

Mrs. Orange Bear said, " well, we knew you were coming because you texted us,

and we wanted to make sure you found us."

Lady Octavia was overjoyed, because the hostel's family suite was spacious, airy, comfortable,peaceful AND affordable. "Why, to think", she thought to herself,

" that any guests coming to the picnic from far away can stay here and be comfortable,and not break their budget." "Mr and Mrs Bear, I am so happy to know about this place. The Twin Mushrooms pavilion is already scheduled for that day, but I am a bit worried

if it should pour down rain and our guests be in a tizzy. Are reservations required?", she asks.

Just call on your way here. We'll make room if we have too. "

  "Oh, thank you very much, " Lady Octavia beamed as she spoke the words. "Here is my card, if you need to get in touch with me.

<





We have sent invitations to Fuschia Rabbit, Red Cap Monkey, Blue Kangaroo whose name by the way is Mama Kanga and her baby, and well, of course, we did not invite that horrible

Giant Chameleon, or Lone Wolf. We cannot let them amongst our people--why it's horrifying to think what would happen!

We will run from the Twin Mushroom Pavilion to the safety of your hostel if we get so much as a whiff of them lurking near by. And oh, almost forgot,

we Lady Bugs also invited Raymond Reindeer who RSVP'd quickly and said he "would be there with his boots on", and we are delighted, because they are so busy this time of year,

delivering all those Christmas gifts. We couldn't not invite him, because he lives in our meadow, and we didn't want to hurt his feelings.

We Lady Bugs thought he would scoff at the idea, with Christmas only 19 days away, but he sent his drawing of himself doing his happy dance in his boots,

when he got his invitation in the U S mail. 

 "Now, now, dear" said Mrs Orange Bear, "don't get yourself so worked up. I am sure that the Twin Mushroom Pavilion is quite safe.

We do business here on its grounds, 24/ 7."

"But," added Mr, Orange Bear quickly, "we will certainly provide you a safe refuge if those characters should show up at your picnic; not to worry". Also, I will notify my cousin Ollie Orange Bear about your picnic since he works for the local paper and would like to interview Raymond Reindeer.

 

Lady Octavia Bug asked, Thank you so much. Would you like me to sign your visitor's book? I would be more than happy to do that."

"Why, yes, that would be great, because it helps us build our reputation too. How kind of you to offer, " replies Mrs. Orange Bear, " follow me to the alcove."

And so they walk the short distance to the hostel, and enter the door. There in the cozy alcove is the Visitor's Log Book and Lady Octavia Bug signs her name

exactly as it appears on her business card:






"I'll be going now, Perhaps we shall see you soon, but if not, then there will be more opportunities. I invite over night guests for the holidays often and sometimes,

they prefer European pleasantries instead of the meadow. I just reassure myself that it is not personal. Some "people" just don't like grass and flowers and sunshine,"

said Lady Octavia. And so she leaves the Twin Mushroom pavilion's hostel and waves good-bye to Mr and Mrs. Bear.

"Swamp frog cartoon" by Gloria Poole of Missouri; 16-Mar-2014; acrylics on paper

As Lady Octavia left the Twin Mushrooms Pavilion and hostel to head back to her home under the Big Tree,
she saw Swamp frog sitting on the cobblestone.

She was surprised since he usually didn't frequent public places.She asked , "Swamp frog, what are you doing here? Why did you leave your swamp?"

He answered, "rumor has it that the lady bugs are sponsoring a picnic--a big to-do-- sometime soon, and I thought to myself, 'how convenient! The flies will be there in droves

and I can slurp them up."

Lady Octavia said, "Swamp frog, you are NOT invited. It is gross to watch you eat flies." Swamp frog's big red tongue unfurled and his saliva dripped as he rubbed his chin.

"Well", he said," come to think of it, lady bugs make a tasty snack".

Lady Octavia panicked, then scurried away as fast as her six legs could take her, back to her house under Big Tree and slammed the door shut and bolted it.

"Whew, that was close", she thought to herself.

 

pg 10:






When Lady Octavia got home to her house under The Big Tree, she kicked back in her favorite chair to watch the news. It had been a stressful day, after all.

Swamp Frog made it known he would gobble her up given the chance. And with that news,she had hurried, hurried, hurried so fast she nearly fell over her six feet.

On the news was a report about the NSA rover on Mars and it got her attention. She thought to herself, " wonder what Mars is like? " and then she thought,

"wonder if the astronauts miss earth?". She fell asleep in her chair and slept restlessly. The next day, on her cell phone was a text message from Mars!

The land rover texted her from Mars! It was unbelievable but there it was, plain as day. Lady Octavia was incredulous. "How can this be? How did they know my cell phone number?

Can they read minds?" all tumbled through her mind at once. Just then, a photo appeared on her cell phone and it said "from Mars's rover". It was an astronaut!


And he had the weirdest eyes she had ever seen on any human. Well, she thought to herself, 'maybe he isn't human? Maybe he's a Martian? "

Then that idea just took on a life of its own. A Martian contacted her! She KNEW it--they can read minds!


She ran to tell the other Lady Bugs, saying, "they will never believe this. I have to show them." And so she did.





Pg. 11

The next day Lady Octavia looked out her kitchen window and lo, and behold, there was ollie Orange Bear marching up and down outside her house holding a protest sign.

She went outside to talk to him. "Ollie, what do you think you are doing?" she asked.

" I am protesting. WHEN is that picnic? I need an interview for the paper and I want to interview Raymond Reindeer. My uncle Orange Bear told me about it. And I can't wait forever. The newspaper wants an interview now. Plus everybody is tired of waiting, "replied Ollie.

"Well, I am trying to get it all together but we need nice weather. Mama Kanga is bringing her baby and it is in The Meadow, at Fantasy Forest Twin Mushrooms, not inside the pavilion," replied Lady Octavia.

"Well, I guess you are right about that. Will you call me when you have it settled?" asks Ollie.

" "Sure, I'll be glad too", replies Lady Octavia. pg 12:


Lady Octavia worried some about what Ollie Orange Bear said and she didn't want people to lose interest in the picnic.

On the other hand, she wanted it to be a pleasant picnic, not a downpour of April showers or a last minute blast of winter. What should she do? " I know", she thought to herself,

"I'll call NOAA and they will know the weather. ". She dialed up the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency on their 800 number.

"Hello, NOAA! this is Lady Octavia .I need to know if the weather is going to be pleasant for a while or if there's more freeze and ice on the way?" she said.

The NOAA guy said, "Lady Octavia, I can tell you this much. Right this minute our radar has detected the birds flying back from the South Seas, and they have entered our air space. They should be back into your neighborhood in a few days. ".

Birds flying north from the South Seas

as my wake-up call. Thank you very much, NOAA," said Lady Octavia.

The NOAA man said, "Lady Octavia you have made my day. It's lonely sitting sitting here watching this radar screen all day. Call anytime. "


Lady Octavia said, "why thank you, I might need too again when we Lady Bugs have set a definite day for our picnic. It's a big to-do you know.

We have invited Raymond Reindeer who is on Santa's alternate list for Christmas Eve, and Blue Kanga and her toddler. And of course, with a wee one coming to picnic,

the weather has to be pleasant. "

She hung up, and ran to Ollie Orange Bear's corner of the woods.
"Ollie! Ollie! " she called.

Ollie Orange Bear appeared and said, "Miss Octavia, you remembered me!"

Lady Octavia said, "well, Ollie, the picnic is not today but it's very soon now, because NOAA says the birds are flying back and will be here any day , "replied Lady Octavia.


Ollie said "Miss Olivia, who's NOAA?"


"Silly me, " said Lady Octavia, " NOAA means National Oceanic and atmospheric agency, and they give extended weather reports.

He told me he saw the birds approaching because they entered his air space on radar. Isn't that wonderful? That means WARM weather for sure. "


Ollie said, "and that means P-I-C-N-I-C soon, doesn't it?"


"yes, indeed. I will let you know when, " replied Lady Octavia, "I've go to go now because we have to ramp up again for the picnic to be as we planned.

See you soon Ollie." And she left.



pg 13:



Lady Octavia was true to her word. She called up Ollie Orange Bear to tell him the picnic is happening today.  Ring! Ring!

 Ollie answers his phone. Lady Octavia said  , " Ollie, today is the day. The picnic is happening today . Do you plan to come to interview Raymond Reindeer ? " asked Lady Octavia.

Ollie replied, " I certainly am. Where and what time? "

 

"Well, we have scheduled the picnic table at the Twin Mushrooms Pavilion in the Fantasy Forest, for lunch time---noonish."

"I know exactly where that is Miss Olivia [he knows her official title is Lady Octavia but he was taught as child to call older women Miss or Mrs.], and I'll be there.

Please tell Raymond Reindeer to expect me. "



Pg. 14

"The day of the picnic finally arrived. Mama kangaroo arrived with her baby with no problems. Then Fuchsia Rabbit with her whiskers wrapped in tin foil.

Then Red Cap Monkey got there too and seemed happy. Raymond Reindeer arrived and folded himself up on the lawn beside the picnic table.

"He sure doesn't look like his drawing of himself,"though Lady Octavia as she set the table. "Raymond, Reindeer, I am so glad you came. I did so want to meet you after hearing that you are on Santa's list of alternates for Christmas Eve. I guess that means you are on call 24/7 till 26th of December?" says Lady Octavia.

"Lady Octavia, I have been on that list for years. Santa never calls me. I wait and wait--no flight," replies Raymond, "Santa's crew never calls in sick. Who would and miss the biggest event of the year for children?'

"It's an honor anyway, don't you think?" asks Lady Octavia.

"I suppose so, answer Raymond, "but very few people know of it. "

Lady Octavia Bug said quickly, "I read about it in the local news and I told everyone all about you."

Raymond said, "that's very kind of you to try to cheer me up and for inviting me to the picnic. I almost never get invited anywhere because people think my antlers wouldn't fit into their house, or that I don't eat people food, or too busy, you know stuff like that. Sometimes I am very sad at Christmas, feeling useless and unwanted."

"Oh, no, dear, you mustn't feel that way. I am sure that you give Santa much peace of mind, knowing he has a reliable back up plan just in case. Planning for disasters is something all important people have to do," says Lady Octavia, warmly reassuring.

Pg.15

When Ollie Orange Bear arrived at the Twin Mushrooms Raymond Reindeer was there all folded up with those long legs tucked under him and he was was thrilled to be interviewed.




"Hey! Ollie. Lady Octavia told me to expect you. I am so excited. I've never been interviewed before. " said Raymond excitedly. Then he went on quickly, "I am only the alternate reindeer for Santa, you know that don't you?"


 Ollie replied, " Hey, yourself! You wonderful reindeer that gets to fly over housetops and make children happy once a year."


 Raymond said, " Oh, Ollie. I wish with all my heart that is true but so far, I am just the on-call reindeer in case Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen are out sick.

They NEVER call-out sick--never. "


Ollie said, "before we get started, I want to get my note tablet to take notes. I know it's old fashioned but I love to write my notes in my own hand-writing on real paper.

 It just makes it more memorable in my mind to do it that way."


 "Well. sure take your time. The Lady Bugs are setting the table and I think we're early. " said Raymond.


  Ok, Ollie, was situated so seriously with his paper tablet in his hand and his pen poised. "Now, Raymond, tell me how Santa selected you?"


 Raymond said, "well, you know in Lapland where all reindeer live, there is an annual festival where Santa and his elves appear and they hold reindeer games

to see which reindeers are the strongest. You know reindeers have to be very strong to pull that sleigh loaded with a trillion toys for children everywhere. But that's not all.

Reindeer have to have good eyesight too, and a keen sense of direction. The year I was selected, I won the second prize for keen sense of direction.

Because I didn't have a perfect score, but did beat everyone except the four reindeer who pull the sleigh, Santa put me as the "alternate" list

which is basically being on-call for Santa to call from midnight on Christmas Eve to midnight on Christmas Day, a twenty-four period."


  Ollie asked, "Raymond do you get paid for that?"

 
"What! Are you kidding? It's an honor to be on Santa's list. I don't know if other reindeer get paid but I wouldn't dream of it, because just think, flying Santa around the world,

while he distributes toys to children is a privilege! I would be thrilled to serve--Santa gives away all his toys he and his elves design and make, you know.

It's not likely he is very rich.

" exclaimed Raymond.
Ollie said, "Raymond, what if I write this and put it in the newspaper? Do you think that will help you get to actually fly Santa?"


"Well. I don't think it could hurt me in any way. Maybe one of those other reindeer would want a vacation and see that news and think,

"aha, now's the time for that vacation', " said Raymond.


 "Ok, then, I think if I hurry I can get this in today's news since the picnic is today. Sorry but I can't stay for the picnic--got to go

if I am to meet the deadline for news today, " shouted Ollie as he was already turned and headed back to the city.



Pg. 16

Ollie's timing was perfect. The Ladies [Bug] called Raymond to lunch.
"Raymond, Raymond! lunch is on the table. Come and eat before it gets cold. Fried chicken, potato salad and chocolate cake for dessert", shouted Lady Octavia.



Raymond had to sort of wiggle into the spot saved for him, between Red Cap Monkey and Lady Octavia  because ,well, to be polite he was so MUCH bigger than they were.

Blue Kanga and her baby and Fuschia Rabbit and the other Lady Bugs were on the opposite side of the table. Blue Kanga has those enormous legs that she bounces on along the earth

and the had to be tucked under the table too.  the table was set and the food was there and it smelled delicious!



Lady Octavia said to everyone, "Raymond was interviewed today by Ollie Orange Bear and it might be in today's paper so please read it when you get home.

Also,  we are going to have a blessing on this food. So, Raymond will you please ask The Lord's blessings on this food? "



Raymond said, "me, Miss Octavia?"


And she said, "sure why not?"


So, Raymond swallowed hard and began, " Dear Lord JESUS, we thank you for this wonderful picnic and all the food so lovingly prepared by the Lady Bugs.

And I thank you especially that they invited me , and that I got to tell Ollie Orange Bear about my dreams of helping Santa. And thank you for these friends gathered here,

and bless this food and the hands that prepared it and use it to the nourishment of our bodies. Amen".


 "Raymond, that prayer brought tears to my eyes. Nobody ever blessed me before", said Lady Octavia, then quickly said before everyone got all teary eyed,

"let's eat, I'm starved!"


 And everyone ate and ate and had chocolate cake and went home happy after saying their thank yous.

About author and illustrator Gloria Poole, RN, artist of Missouri and Georgia:

This is one of my personal logos that I made with a computer program instead of paint brush or ink pen. it is to make easily visible the many roles I have. Also, for the record: I am not an employee of anyone. I "work" for myself from my own apt in Missouri drawing, sketching, blogging, photographing, painting and tweeting. I do not have a boss nor a supervisor nor a husband, nor a business partner. I also have never signed a power of attorney to anyone to represent me in any matter [yet]. I do not have a literary agent, nor an artist's rep and never did to date [23 June 2015 at 11:23am].

This is me Gloria Poole,RN,artist, author and illustrator of this story as I looked in spring 2014 but I look exactly the same today.

Update by me Gloria on 11 August 2014 at 9:32am to add this site:
https://sites.google.com/site/tapestriesflowers/ since some seem to think it is secret or suspicious. It isn't. And to tell that readers can read some of the provenance of art I create on the blog in my former married name of https://gloriapoolepappas.blogspot.com, but remember I am divorced from male DBP since Oct 2007 after 4 horrible years of marriage in which he caused many injuries to me and tried to kill me; and I removed the Pappas name from my name in Oct 2007 by Court order of District Court Judge who signed final divorce decree in Arapahoe County Colorado.I resumed my full maiden name at the same time. Also, you can read more about me and see more of the usual sort of art I create on another blog of mine at : https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com

Also, on other blogs of mine also including and each is different as I update them with art I make on rotating basis:

Gloria Poole,RN,artist at my own apt in Missouri on 28 March 2015 at 9:25am.
Updated by me Gloria Poole at my own, private apt in Missouri on 29 March 2015 at 12:08 pm to add in the content that had been stolen off it. I did what I could do to secure this blog also. Updated by me Gloria Poole again on 30th March 2015 at 11:08am to change some of the photos of art I created for better photos of it. Also yesterday 29 March 2015 I added back the missing pages to this story and the accompanying art that had been stolen off blog by cyber-criminals. Update by me Gloria Poole,RN, artist on 5 May 2015 at 6: 13pm to say that I corrected the photo of the hostel and that I have the original art work I created for this blog and the words in paper form also. Also, I made some changes to the security settings and telephones of this account of mine because a cyber-criminal at remote had altered the width of the blog so that some letters were cut off; and I corrected that to full width. I am actively seeking to publish this story that I wrote and illustrated into a paper book and at some point in time, I may take this off the web to put it into paper book form. Update by me Gloria Poole, RN, artist [of /in Missouri since Oct 2009], today 23 June 2015 at 10:28am to amend paragraph about "hostel" art and to write that I added a new phone number to my telephone numbers in an effort to secure some of my blogs and accounts. I rotated around some of my telephone numbers. I have not moved from Missouri, and am still single-again, still white, still Southern Baptist Christian woman. Also see these sites of mine because they also contain art I made; and photos I photographed of genre scenes:

https://picasaweb.google,.com/gloria0817

Update on 6th Sept 2015 at 7:14am by me Gloria Poole to notate that I made changes to some of the phones that I had previously added to this account of necessity because cyber-criminals tried to hijack one of my cell phone account by using the carrier's server and insider info of my account. I still have the phone but do not know how many of the employees of the carrier are able to access my info on it. So, I made changes to this account of mine. Also, regardless of what cyber-criminals say, I do not have a "boss" or "supervisor". The man who intermittently tries to hijack my accounts is my 2nd exhusband with initials DBP, who swore he "would track me like an animal and kill me". But he is not getting that chance if I can help it. Obviously this affects many aspects of my life. I do not continue any sort of relationship with him and have not seen him in person since Jan 2009, in a federal courtroom in Denver , Colorado, when I was summoned because he owes me a ton of money for injuries he caused when he was violating a restraining order against him. I MOVED to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 and into my own apt on Nov 2nd 2009 here in Missouri. I am keeping this running commentary because it documents the events that have happened in producing this story, writing it, illustrating it, maintaining it. I still hope to publish this on paper in a book that anybody can buy at book stores. I am also adding in the "standard" copyright I have put on my other blogs this year. This portion of this blog after the story ends, is documentation and clarification which is very necessary for many reasons.

STATEMENT OF OWNERSHIP: This blog and all content, all words, all photos and all art on it, are owned by me and were created and posted by me Gloria Poole , RN, artist of Missouri and Georgia, signed by me, photographed by me and uploaded by me, and I own all rights to it collectively and individually. I do not have a "boss" nor a 'supervisor" as I am not an employee of anyone; and I live alone. The criminals who try to steal my identity with a regular effort are common criminals and ID thieves who should be in prison. You can read my profile for this blog at:

This is my signature I painted to mark the turning of the year. I also painted the "brush" on it. I have posted this on my blogs as I update them.

Copyright notice :I, Gloria Poole, own all rights to all content on this blog. Usually I sign the art I create as simply Gloria since that is my first name, that I was born with; but on pencil and or ink drawings I sometimes also sign my born with surname of Poole which is my legal name again because I resumed it by Court order after both divorces. I am divorced from male with initials DBP of Colorado since Oct 2007 and he has no authority to log in to any account of mine nor to use my name or content in any way. I resumed my full maiden name INCLUDING MY BORN WITH SURNAME OF POOLE after the divorce from him was final in Oct 2007. I MOVED to Missouri in Oct 2009. I am also known on the web and in real life as Gloria; Gloria Poole; Gloria J Poole; Gloria Poole, RN, artist; and on the web as : gloriapoole; gloria-poole; gloria.poole; Ms Gloria Poole; gloriapoole.RN; gloriapoole_RN; gloriapooleRN at yahoo; gloria0817; gpoole817; artist-gloriapoole; gloriapoole-paintings; artist-gloria; Poole,Gloria; gloriapoole1749; and other variations of my real, born with, and legal name of Gloria Poole. For the record, I am a white, single-again, twice divorced, Southern Baptist, born again, Christian, woman and the mother of only two children who are grown daughters who are named Jennifer and Leigh. I am also a prolife activist, blogger, artist in all mediums; photographer for my own purposes, Registered Nurse with a license in Missouri but before that for most of my life in the state of Georgia, U.S. citizen born in the state of Georgia; University of Georgia alum, Georgia Baptist College of Nursing alum, writer, illustrator, author, personhood promoter. This blog may not be downloaded, nor copied individually or collectively as a whole; nor have domains forwarded to it that do not belong to me, nor may the photos or art on it be reproduced or saved to disk by anyone .

Updated by me Gloria on 10th Oct 2015 at 3:22pm to add https settings always and a few meta settings, and to keep on web. I just realized that criminals at remote broke into my blog [this one] and tampered with it AGAIN to change some of the words to teeny, tiny. When those cyber-criminals and ID thieves go to federal prison, my life will get lots better. Meanwhile, I may have to correct this later, since it is going to take a while. Update about 20 minutes later by me Gloria: I think I have corrected the font size everywhere AGAIN, but I suppose because I copyrighted this story and art at Library of Congress on PAPER, it put my info into database that bad people also have access too. It seems virtually impossible to prevent people who have NO authority to login to this account, from logging into it by cyber-crime. I have 2 step login authorization set for this account and all telephones are mine but it doesn't seem to secure it from corrupt people who work for cell phone carriers. I am not sure what solution is. But I am leaving this online for now. Updated slightly by me Gloria Poole, RN, artist of/ in Missouri to add in 2 of my cartoon sites today 31 Dec 2015 at 9:28am. Updated by me Gloria on 21st jan 2016 at 10:42am to add in carton site https://sites.google.com/site/cartoonsbyGloria update info. Updated by me Gloria Poole,Registered Nurse and artist in all mediums on 11th March & also 27th March 2016 at 4:28pm to update the accompanying site of cartoons I made at https://sites.google.com/site/cartoonsbyGloria. Updated by me Gloria Poole, RN, artist on 17th April 2016 at 11:11am to update this blog slightly and also my cartoon auxiliary site and to remind all that I have in my possession the art of the story that I created on paper and then photographed to put on web. For the record the weird formatting is NOT my doing. Cyber-criminals break into this blog routinely because they are trying to steal the copyright and any future royalties. I created all content on this blog and when I created this post, the words were uniform size. It seems to be IMPOSSIBLE to stop the US-governments-former-employees from breaking into my blogs. Updated by me Gloria Poole,Registered Nurse and artist in all mediums on 13th Oct 2016 at 4:38pm .

I am adding in the same set of words as copyright notice I have put since about May 2015 on other blogs to identify this as one of my blogs. I am also keeping the original copyright notices that I added in from time to time as documentation that this was copyrighted all along as I created it.

Copyright notice:I, Gloria Poole, own all rights to all content on this blog. Usually I sign the art I create as simply Gloria since that is my first name, that I was born with; but on pencil and or ink drawings I sometimes also sign my born with surname of Poole which is my legal name again because I removed the Pappas name from my name at time of final divorce decree in Oct 2007 from male DBP, and I resumed my full maiden name of Gloria Poole by Court order at the same time.

Update info: I, gloriapoole, /Gloria Poole,RN, owner and creator of this account, this blog, the story I wrote and illustrated as above, logged in to this account of mine to add to my cartoon site of https://sites.google.com./site/cartoonsbyGloria today 12th Dec 2016 at 1:23pm only to find that the entire site of cartoons is being blocked by unauthorized persons who broke into my account to plunder and steal. Since the cartoon site is MISSING [entire site of it was stolen-- ripped off blog by cybercriminal trying to port my account to their phone, I am putting the cartoon I planned to add to it, to this blog as follows. Copyrighted. I drew this sketch 2 of a super cartoon in ink on a 3 x5 inch sketchbook of mine and those are my fingers on the edge of the lil book. COPYRIGHT. Gloria Poole,RN,artist of/in Missouri. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

This is cartoon I intended to add to my cartoon site cartoons by gloria at https://sites.google.com/site/cartoonsbyGloria today. I drew this, signed it, photographed it, uploaded it and posted it today 12th Dec 2016 since I could not post it to the site of mine that has art I created on it, because site is being blocked by criminals who broke into my account. I, Gloria Poole of Missouri have a paper copyright from the Library of Congress for this story I wrote and illustrated and named "The adventures of Lady Bugs that give picnics" as told above. Updated on 28th March 2017 at 2:44pm by me Gloria Poole, of/in Missouri to add in my 2017 personal logo. Update on 21st April 2017 at 11:57am by me Gloria Poole, who is a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri, and an artist/author/cartoonist/illustrator/photographer/personhood for all promoter/Christian/republican defined by Constitution and white woman/mother. It is necessary to include this statement because several people in past year have tried to totally hijack my name and identity and content on the web. Some of those are in faraway continents, & some of those are in other states of US, and some are black people and some MIGHT be religions other than Christian. I include this detail to define which "gloriapoole " ;"Gloria Poole" I am. I have never lived in Florida, nor Alabama, nor country of Turkey, nor have I ever sold any of my copyright rights to anything to anybody. I contacted the FBI earlier about the attempted theft of my name and they have helped me. I retain all rights to this story and this account and this blog.

Simple frog cartoon created by Gloria Poole,RN,artist of Missouri and Georgia on 16 March 2015

This is a simple frog cartoon I created to show a "frog" in his element of grasses. I drew and painted this with watercolor, yesterday 16 March 2015. I also created another frog in the story about the ladybugs who give picnics which is also on this blog. I remember a time I was afraid of frogs because a tiny frog flew through the air and landed on me when I was younger and scared the wits outa me! So now, it's fun to make them cartoon figures.

This is my signature I signed in digital ink to make a 2015 personal logo.

this is my hand on one of my christian crosses to remind all that I am born again Christian and do not make nor worship images of GOD, nor bow down in worship to any thing, nor make "graven images" or as some Bibles call them "standing up images" [statues] in accordance with Exodus 20 in KJV.

Cartoon lamb, grasshopper and levitating car by Gloria Poole, RN,artist of Missouri and Georgia

Lamb,grasshopper and levitating car [cartoon] by Gloria Poole of Missouri 
This is my signature I signed with digital ink to make a personal logo for this year or until I decide to change it. I also sign art I create as merely Gloria almost always since it is my real first name.

This is the U S flag I photogrpahed on walkabout to remind all that I am a U S citizen with all civil liberties including the first amendment freedom of Press, freedom to worship GOD; and freedom to protest governments in a peaceful, law-abiding way. Those words are my paraphrase of the first amendment. Google it to read the exact words.

This is my hand holding one of my Southern Baptist Christian cross necklaces, to remind all that I adhere to the Holy Bible as the word of GOD and do not make images of GOD, nor worship idols in accordance with Exodus chapter 20 of King James Holy Bible.. You should see another blog of mine at https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com and the about me page on it and also these other blogs of mine that are each different and that cover different topics of art, photography, public health; prolife; personhood ; gloriapoole; :
