The Lady Bugs Plan picnic at Fantasy Forest cartoon by Gloria Poole

Since most of the guests didn't make it to the first Lady Bug picnic, the Lady Bugs decided to try again. So they're sending invitations as follows. Then scroll down to see the place of the next picnic.

These three photos tell another part of the story of the Lady bug Picnic:

 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. Then they hand wrote invitations, because hand-written invitations are waaaaaaaaay better than ordinary typed ones and are more fitting and proper etiquette. 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. And 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 respondere vous plait [ unsure of correct spelling] 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. "

Stay tuned for the next page of the story of Lady Bug Picnic [made up as I go and with cartoon illustrations]. To follow the story, you may need to scroll back to first post on this blog and read coming forward. There are some random cartoons that are unrelated to the story, just for fun.
