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.

|Cartoon happy reindeer created by Gloria Poole , Nov 2013|
I Gloria Poole am adding two more cartoons here [this is one of my blogs] that I created in past week. Since I am praying this will be a very safe site for small children to see regularly, I am planning to add to it regularly. When I say I am praying it will be safe, I mean that what I put on it myself is safe, moral, and free of viruses as best I could certify that depending upon my isp account's measures in place. This is not a shared apartment nor a shared blog, nor a shared isp acct, nor a shared internet account. But I have learned after ten years of having websites and blogs that there is a shadow internet that people are not aware of it, til millions of people's info was compromised by cyber-hacker/criminals. Since I am one of those people, whose info has been compromised often by using the internet, I know what I write about.
These cartoons are simple stories. The top one is a page in the Lady bug picnic story on this blog. So if you haven't read the 'pages' of it, scroll to first entry and read coming forward. I am trying to create an online [e-book for small children] that the mother or daddy could sit down and scroll through post entries to the read the entire story to the child. Also, I have created another cartoon sketch that it much more developed and that I painted and named "Raymond Reindeer" which I think I posted to another blog of mine or maybe to earlier posts on this one. They are totally different cartoons created in different years but both created by me.
Story for page of Lady bug picnic:
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. [ next page not posted yet--stay tuned].

|Computer-generated-graphics-solar system-by-Gloria Poole; yr 2013|
Cartoon drawn by Gloria Poole in yr 1995 in Atlanta, GA & it's named "judo"
The second cartoon is a cartoon to make you laugh. It's a woman learning judo.
I was required to take judo for self defense when I was a student nurse [many years ago] .
I am a Registered Nurse, licensed in Missouri but can't work in it except to write on blogs
[because of trauma on two different events of concussions, fractures, with the sequelae of that].
The YA on it is because the Army Major that taught me and the entire class of student nurses
[in Atlanta GA ] said for judo you have to shout first to throw the attacker off guard.
I have only used judo once in my life, to save my own life
[in Colorado during those horrible years I lived there. ]
|Cartoon-created by Gloria Poole; Oct 2013; and it is named "redcap monkey"|
The third one is a cartoon that I intended to be a page
in the lady bug picnic story. So to continue the story:
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.
