Ollie Orange Bear cartoon by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

Cartoon: Lady bug picnic protest by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia; 23-April-2014
The story of the Lady Bug Picnic resumes so if you are reading this to a small child, begin here:

Lady Octavia looked out her kitchen window, after she got back from telling her friends about the Astronaut photo that appeared on her phone;  and lo and behold! Ollie Orange Bear was marching back and forth on the sidewalk near her house under The Big Tree, and he was carrying a white flag with the words "Lady Bug Picnic" written on it and he was waving it around and shouting . She rushed to talk to him. "Ollie Orange Bear, what are you doing? " she asked.  
Ollie said, "Miss Octavia, you know my cousins Mr and Mrs Orange Bear?" 
"Well, indeed I do. I met them when I visited their Welcome Home hostel to see if it would be adequate if a rain-out occurred for our picnic", replied Lady Octavia. 
 "Well. Yes. I knew that because they told me. But I am mad because I have been waiting forever for that picnic! I want to be there at the Welcome Home when you have that picnic and sort of wander over to it to see Raymond Reindeer. You know he was in the news and I don't think I will have another chance to meet him. So WHEN IS THAT PICNIC?" he asked practically shouting at her. 
 "Oh, I see", said Lady Octavia, "well. Ollie, we couldn't have a picnic in the snow! Every time we had it planned it snowed, or had downpour from heaven. It was really discouraging to us Lady Bugs too." 
Ollie said, "but Miss Olivia [he was taught to call his elders by their proper title but Lady just sounded too formal since after all, he was protesting her at her own house] , spring has sprung. The snow is gone. So ?". 
 Lady Octavia laughed and said, "Ollie, you're in luck because it is soon. I will call you personally when we have a few consecutive days of warm , pleasant, dry weather to tell you when to see Raymond Reindeer at the picnic. AND, if you march around with that flag to notify everyone, why, I might even invite you to the picnic. "
 Ollie grinned and replied "I am happy, happy, happy, Miss Olivia. Thank you very much. I'm going right now to tell my cousins Mr and Mrs Orange Bear that the picnic is on again. Of course, weather good for picnic is also good for travelers who love my cousins' hostel. Life is good, Miss Olivia. " 
And he left. 

Stay tuned .

The Astronaut from NASA contacts Lady Bug cartoon by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

The story of the Lady Bugs sponsoring a picnic continues in a different version than the one in the book I wrote and illustrated. {Aside to parents} This is paragraph is to read to your children: : 

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. "

Stay tuned for next page in story...

Updated copyright since 9-April-2014, necessary for several reasons
Copyright Notice: I, Gloria Poole, residing in Missouri but born in state of Georgia, own this blog and all rights to it. I created it to begin with, years ago [but modified last year] , and have continued it after I moved to Missouri Oct 31, 2009.  I own all rights to this blog and to all content of it. I created the art and signed it, that I put on it,and photographed it;and uploaded it to this blog. I have the original paintings and sketches.  I also own all rights to any art, words, graphics  I have created or do create in any place, for any reason or no reason, with any tool or method or brush  on any surface, at any time. I have never assigned my copyrights to any one and I do not have an artist's rep or a literary agent at this time and have never had either [in the past].  I sign my name on art as Gloria, and on some sketches as Gloria Poole. Gloria Poole is my real, born with, legal name since I resumed it legally after my 2nd divorce which was in Arapahoe County Colorado. I removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore by order of District Court Judge at time of final decree of divorce from male DBP in Oct 2007 who lives in Colorado; and I resumed my maiden name including my surname of Poole. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009.  I am also known on the web as; gloriapoole; Gloria as on art such as this which I signed when I  completed it; gloria.poole; gloria-poole; gloria0817; gpoole817; gloria_poole; gloriapoole1749; gloriapoole.RN; gloriapooleRN at yahoo in which the RN means standard abbreviation for Registered Nurse; and as artist-gloria; artist-gloriapoole; gloriapoole-paintings; Poole, Gloria; Ms. Gloria Poole; Gloria Poole creator of words that WORK and Tapestry of LIFE;   and as other variations of my real, born with, legal name of Gloria Poole. And I am known as G-L-O-R-I-A on and I had three domains with much art I created with my name written that way, for about 6 yrs until they were stolen from me by cyberthugs.  I also had many domains and many with my very name written as gloriapoole in them from years 2004-2011 when criminals broke into my web-hosting accounts and ripped my domains and content right out-of-admin-panel.  I have not bought domains since , because there is no security on web-hosting 'packages" because  they do not honor business law or contract laws or any laws that I can tell since web-hosting companies do not try to stop cyber-criminals.

For the record: I am white, single again [divorced twice], woman with brown hair, Southern Baptist Christian, and the mother of two grown "children" who are daughters named Jennifer and Leigh. I am also a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri; and an artist in all artists' mediums; and a blogger, tweeter, poet, author of children's book, and citizen journo; and photographer. I was born in the state  of Georgia and am a US citizen by birth so I have all Constitutional protections including the First Amendment right to publish, speak, write, protest and the right not to associate with ungodly in general and  atheist perverts in particular, or with violent murderous people or with alcoholics or with d-r-ug-a-d-d-ic-t-s [spelled to try avoid being labeled as wrong sort of person by political censorship on the prowl].
Also, for the record [for purposes of copyright and law enforcement {because several facets of my identity such as state of Georgia issued ID were stolen from me more than once and they were in tangible form}], I am not an employee of anyone, and Gloria Poole is my real, born with, legal name {but I have a middle Christian, given name at birth also that I never write as part of my signature}; and I draw, paint, sketch, photograph, tweet, blog , write from my own private apartment in Missouri, which is NOT shared with anyone. I work for myself in other words from my home studio-office which is a dedicated room for that purpose. I think the criminal who stole my GA ID and my Holy Bible with my name printed on it, cut my photo out of the ID and inserted his accomplice's photo which is how it was used to access bank and credit union accounts of mine that began in Colorado. I lived in Colorado only a few yrs and was married a second time there for only 4 yrs and ten months before final decree of divorce from male DBP there. both divorces of mine are public record--one in Georgia and one in Colorado. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 to the same apt I am creating this blog from, which is my only residence.
 I have NEVER had blond hair even as a tiny child. Both of my daughters were very blond up until college, but their hair is also darker more like mine now. But I know for certain that one of the accomplices of DBP who lives in Colorado dyes her hair a platinum [false looking] blond because she's old and gray- headed if hair not dyed blond. That is a statement of fact relevant to an on-going investigation into who is using my name and identity. I have been reported as blond yet I have NEVER been blond and NEVER dyed my hair. If you see my selfie from 15-March-2014 on about me page, you see the slight grey tendrils at my temples in my brown hair. I reason I earned them! And I'm keeping them.
Also, statement of fact: I am not subject to censorship or employer laws. I am a private  US citizen by birth and draw, paint, photograph, blog, and tweet from my own private apartment. I always sign the art I create unless I have not finished it and plan to re-draw it or re-paint it.  I do not have not for profit and never did. I never applied for not for profit status for any LLC or LLP I created, nor for my name or art. I intend some day to make a profit! No one is authorized to log into any account of mine anywhere, but me. 
Also, as a statement of fact: the title to this blog that is written in script was generated on computer and is not an example of my hand-writing or signature. My signature is on the art I created, and photographed and uploaded to this blog of mine and also to other blogs of mine.
