WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY AND CHALLENGE #100
MY FIDDLE! OH FADDLE! HE'S SPOTLESS IN SEATTLE!!
Note: Anyone is welcome to play! Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun!
This is my story!
1. Last week was my 100th teaparty but I chose to celebrate my 101 teaparty as a special milestone instead! It all has to do with black and white dots, I mean spots! You probably arenít surprised to see that the teapot being featured this week is an adorable little spotless dalmation doggie teapot! Heís dalmation through and through and a direct descendant of some pretty famous dalmations. You might recognize some of his family members by name. Patch, Lucky, Lightening Bolt, Rolly, Pepper, Two-Tone, Whizzer, Pongo, Perdita, Dip-Stick, Little Dipper, Domino, Odd-Ball, and Dotty.
2. Lightning Bolt was his idol but Odd-Ball is the family member he can most identify with! You see Odd-Ball was born without spots only to get them later in life. Duke, having been spotless all his life, is hoping for the same and even though all of his family members encourage him day after day, he's beginning to wonder if his spots will ever come in! Duke is a little self conscious and in his pursuit of happiness (to be a Fire Engine Dalmation!) he applied for a job on line on Fire Engine 9! Let's just say he neglected to mention that he is spotless! He had thoroughly intended to mention that on his on-line application but when the job description mentioned that part of his job responsibilities would be riding on Fire Engine 9 in local parades, he got a little nervous about that! The long and short of it is that he traveled to Seattle, aced the job interview, won the heart of the Captain of the Fire House and got the job! Woot! There is just one little dilema, he pretty much guaranteed the Captain that by the time he comes to work in two weeks he will have his spots! Yikes!
3. The Captain Calls the Shots! Go Out and Get Your Spots!! That's where we come in! Bring dots, I mean spots! 42,000 of them! Don't be worried about how they arrive. They can be on a vase, in a blank space, on a teapot, in a small spot, in a background, on a greyhound, on a flower, in a shower, on a big brad, even a small lad. Bring 'em on a cake, or maybe a snake, stuck to a table, or on a white label, enclosed in a square, in an old lady's hair! Bring em on a ladybug, a coffee mug, a giraffe or a small calf. Brings lots of dots, I mean spots, cuz the Captain calls the shots!
4. Meet Hoover, the Spot Remover! He's why we don't need to worry about how your spots get to Seattle. Hoover is an expert at removing spots! He has a long and successful background at the Dalmation Plantation where for years, he removed spots from Dalmations to disquise them from a certain Dalmation obsessed crazy lady with a long cigarette! No reason why he can't remove spots from other things and place them ON A DALAMATION instead of taking them OFF A DALMATION!
Oh Fiddle, Oh Faddle, We're Off to Seattle! You should probably bring an umbrella, just don't bring Cruella! If you get confused and bring stripes, you have to come in the back door cuz Duke's afraid of lions and he really can't end up a zebra! Don't cha know!!!
