This is my story!
1. Well, you just never know where we are going from week to week! I am excited this week! We are going to camp! Like when we were little kiddos!
Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah
Here we are at Camp Granada.
Camp is very entertaining;
And they say we'll have some tea if it stops raining.
We went gardening with Jane Spivey;
She then developed poison ivy.
You remember Lisa Skinner;
She likes cookies, and she's not really that much thinner!
The Master Gardner hates our flowers.
And we've been growing, those for hours!
And the baker, thinks we're rookies
She won't even let us bake our special cookies!
Now don't worry, don't let this scare ya.
The Garden Planner, she got malaria.
Do you remember Janie Harden;
She's supposely knows how to plant a garden.
Help us quickly, Muddah, Fadduh,
Help us quickly, to save Granada.
Bring us flowers, even while it showers.
Gotta get these flowers growing in a coupla hours.
We need Sunshine, oh Muddah, Fadduh.
It's quite missing at Camp Granada!
Bring some flowers, do it quickly.
Our new garden is so very dull and sickly.
Dearest Fadduh, darling Muddah,
Where's the flowers? Why'd ya shudder?
Wait a minute! What's that coming?
Happy voices and I think I hear some humming?
Carts are blooming, packed with petals!
What's on the bottom? Are those tea kettles?
Weather's clearin, it's getting hotter.
What has happened and what's a teapotter?
Tea and Cookies, Parade of Flowers
42,000? OMG, this could go on for hours!
It's not wetter, Gee, dat's better!
Muddah, Fadduh, kindly disregard this letter!
Bring a card made with an image of a flower cart. Bring flowers, colorful and bloomin' beautiful! Bring flowers and more flowers, flowers to make our garden sing! Bring Sunshine! Lots of it, Sunshine to make our garden grow! If you simply cannot build a cart with wheels, just bring enough flowers to fill one. We will probably run into some contruction types along the way and we bribe them with cookies to build our carts!
You must come in the back door if you tip-toed through the poison ivy, can't swim, or smiled at the grumpy old Camp Director that makes the rules at Camp including the one about making our beds every day! Oh, and if you are not afraid of big bugs and crawly things in the cabins, then you go in the front door, first!!
This week our destination is Case Granda, Arizona. If you would like a destination for your cards this week, how about sending them to Betty. Betty has been brought to our attention by fellow Teapotter Dorothy (Etsdas).
Betty is a very good friend of Dorothy's. Sadly, she has recently been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and has been in the hospital for the past 17 days.
For more information including Betty's address go to Post #269
in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. 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 totally 100% voluntary!
Here is my card.
Here is the awesome card
that Dorothy (Etsdas) made for her friend, Betty.
