Post MMTPT106 ~ HEY, GET OFF THE MOUND! YOU'RE NO BAD NEWS BASSETHOUND!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY AND CHALLENGE #106
HEY, GET OFF THE MOUND!
YOU'RE NO BAD NEWS BASSETHOUND!!

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!

Before I get started with the story, I have a request. From time to time I like to communicate with the teapotters (aka ~ anyone who plays in a Teapot Tuesday Challenge). You never know when I might have some important teapotter announcements. If you would like to be included please email me at mothermark@comcast.net with your email address and I will add you to the Teamail Group!

This is my story!

1. Okay, so how could I ever resist featuring this cute little teapot! Giggle! Don't ya just love him?? As long as I have been doing Teapot Tuesday, I am still blown away at all the fun teapots I have not featured! Yikes! We've got quite a future ahead! Yay!

2. Meet Boscoe, the Bassethound! As a wee little puppy, he grew up in the same household as a little fellah who loved baseball and whose favorite movie was The Bad News Bears! As Boscoe grew up, he discovered he had a knack for playing fetch, fielding ground balls, batting with a stick (yes, its amazing, stick in mouth) and sliding into bases quite successfully despite his barrel body and short legs! He began to think those Bad News Bears were a bunch of sissys! He's da man! He can do it all! It just might be a Bassethound thing! Hmm.....that got the ole wheels to turnin'! The Bad News Bassethounds! Yup, a team of Bassethounds will kick butt! And he's got so many friends that getting a team of 12 put together will be cake ! His friends will do anything he threatens! (might have something to do with the fact that he's quite large!)

3. What's up with that? He never even dreamed his talents for baseball were not every Bassethound's talents! Could he honestly be the only talented one? He doesn't even care that the whole team he recruited just walked out on the first practice! He doesn't wanna hear another complaint! I am draggin' my belly! I am stuck on the base! It's too hard to run clear out there! It hurts my teeth to hold on to this stick! Move that base when I slide in, it hurts my belly! I am too short to catch that fly!!

Get off my Field!! Bah! Bassethounds (except for him) are a bunch of sissys! On to Plan B cuz why should he waste his own talents?

4. Hey, I am not a meanie, Queenie! Queenie is a Weenie (Dashund) who thinks she's a Bassethound living life petite, extra short and un-spotted! We gotta get some new talent, big bad macho sports minded dogs like me! With me heading up this team, the sky is the limit! He's thinking 42,000 to nuttin' the first game played!! Whut? Heck no, we are not gonna change the name of the team! I am a Bassethound and proud of it and so are you (sorta!) The Bad News Bassethounds it will be! Besides, it's catchy and due to the infamous Bad News Bears , maybe the name will get us some extra attention! Hey, get off the mound! You're no Bad News Bassethound! Darn that Curt the Squirt, who invited him??

Boscoe needs recruits.....big bad baseball brutes.....but he has to draw the line, they gotta be dogs! Bring your baseball dogs, baseball cards, coaches, team captains, bat boys, umps and referees. Bring your bats, (yah a dog bone's okay) mitts, and baseball hats! If you bring a belly draggin' short little Bassethound, he better be able to play or you're coming in the back door!


Get ready all you baseball, I mean, Baseball Bassethound fans! We're talkin' homeruns, shut-outs, stolen bases and triple plays. You didn't know I knew so much about baseball stuff did ya? Me neither!!

TEAPOT TUESDAY #106 DESTINATION STATION:

This week we are sending our cards to little 10 year old boy who is a baseball player through and through and a member of the Elm Grove Eagles! His name is Andrew ~ #8 and he was brought to my attention by Charlene (cookiebaker) . Andrew has multiple brain tumors and is not doing so well right now. He loves baseball and loves his fellow team members. And they love him! They are so good to Andrew that they all shaved their heads in his honor and are referring to themselves now as the Elm Grove *Bald* Eagles! Giggle! Gives me warm fuzzies.

The details (including address) are here in Post #87 of the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread if you chose to send a card to Andrew. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is strictly voluntary.

I have recruited 13 great SCSer's to make a sample for Andrew and in honor of each of Andrew's fellow Team Members.

Cookiebaker in honor of Andrew here.

Wannabcre8tive - For Andrew in honor of David here.

JoJot - For Andrew in honor of Jake here.

Philsmom - For Andrew in honor of Vince here.

Mutnik - For Andrew in honor of The Coach here and another for the Team here.

KsNurse - For Andrew in honor of Avery here.

Francie G - For Andrew in honor of another Jake here.

Joan Ervin - For Andrew in honor of Nick here.

Marilynn - For Andrew in honor of Dawson here.

Connie Jo - For Andrew in honor of Billy here.

Celisa - For Andrew in honor of Michael here.

I love Rubber - Fort Andrew in honor of Matt here.

Broom - For Andrew in honor of John here.

And here is my card ~ Boscoe the Bassethound, Team Captain!

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #106 Challenge Gallery and our adventures with Boscoe and The Bad News Bassethounds!!

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT106 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? I am posting a sneak peak (tea peek) on my blog each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. I usually post it a couple days after the Tuesday Challenge is posted. So, be sneaky and get a jump on the other tea-potters! Snort!

If you are confused about these challenge, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.

Thanks so much Teapotters! I just know Andrew's family will be overwhelmed by your outpouring of love.

Andrew's aunt doesn't post on SCS but she made a special dog card for him so I wanted to share it with you.

Thinking of You, Andrew

Oh, I hope I get to play tonight. I would love to send a card to Andrew. What a sweet story that all the team shaved their heads. My heart broke a little to read about Andrew's illness.

WOW! All the cards in the gallery are over the top creative. I cannot draw my image, my computer editing skills are just about non existent, my available dogs just did not quite work ... Oh, well. BIG CONGRATULATIONS to those who have inspired us and will be encouraging Andrew.

No humor today. My brother, Alan, died of the same thing when he was eight.

Andrew likes this!

Happy Birthday Toomanycookbooks - although I really don't think one can have too many cookbooks. I very rarely cook - that job belongs to hubby - but I love reading them! Hope you have a wonderful day!!!
