IT'S NOT BONES THAT
WILL TIE UP THE PHONES!
OH FOR HEAVEN SAKES,
IT'S STRAWBERRY SHAKES!

You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!
This is my story!
1. It's my pleasure to host Teapot Tuesday this week! Thanks so much to the other Teapot Tuesday hostesses for coming up with such fun challenges week in and week out! Its fun having tea on Tuesdays with the likes of all of you! Although, I was not a happy camper when you all were obsessed with your tea and cookies and left me on the plank last Tuesday! Geeze!
2. Meet Schmuddley McCuddley! He's got quite a smile, it can be seen for a mile! Life is good, life is great! Success has always been his fate. Do you think that its bones that will tie up the phones? It's something more sweet, its a pink tastey treat! When you walk through his door, there will be smiles galore! Oh for heaves sakes, it's Strawberry Shakes! His smile can be seen from afar, he'll have a Beemer for a car! Now who woulda thunk, that a cute puppy punk, could come up with plan to out perform his friend Stan!
3. Stan is a waggering man! He's a little green with envy at the idea McCuddley has come up with! How could it be, he just doesn't see! Could he get all this money selling something sweeter than honey? Now his little buddy McCuddley doesn't care what he thinks, he knows deep down, its not just about the drinks. Schmuddley is determined it's all about the smile! He knows that Strawberry shakes is not all that it takes. He knows whats required from the people he's just hired, they'll serve a smile with that shake, for goodness sake!
4. Oh that Stan, what a mean man! He's secretly hired 42,000 cranky grumps to bring through the door on opening day! No way will they all leave with a smile much less a strawberry shake! That motto that he's painted on the wall, won't matter at all! He's crazy if he thinks a smile is what it takes to sell 42,000 Strawberry shakes.
Schmuddley McCuddley's Motto (as provided by a friend of Tyler Tucker)
We smile through our fight,
We smile when the sun is bright,
We smile when we are sad,
We smile even though we may be mad,
We smile through our pain,
We smile even when it rains,
We smile through our fear
We smile when our battle is near,
We smile because it helps us through our day,
we smile when we pray,
We smile because we are brave,
We smile because it's the life god gave.
Rut, roh! Our little buddy Schmuddley McCuddley needs help filling his Strawberry Shake Shop with lots and lots of smiles! His hired help will be key! You know the drill, bring happy things. What do you think would make 42,000 cranky grumps smile? The sky's the limit. Smiles are contagious, strawberry shakes just tickle the tummy and critters and their riddles make for an awful lotta giggles!
EPEC ~ (EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES!)
You get extra points for extra cookies if you bring a joke! Joke on the outside, punch line on the inside! You get extra cookies if you bring a strawberry shake! You get extra cookies if you bring a $1.00 bill framed and hung on the wall, to celebrate Schmuddley McCuddley's first dollar of success!
This week our destination is Greenville, South Carolina. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Tyler. Tyler was brought to our attention by fellow SCSer, Caterina (caterinafmig). Tyler is a very sweet 11 year old boy who currently is in remission from Rhabdomyosarcoma, childhood cancer, however this has caused many serious problems.
For more information, a link to Tyler's website and the address to mail your card, please visit Post #310
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!
