Default MMTPT223 ~ November 6, 2012 ~ A duck in the city is a duck out of water!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY MMTPT223 AND

THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY

A duck in the city is a duck out of water!
Jake's a duck and should live on a lake for goodness sake!

Jake and Jen are living in the city
Jake is the object of his friends’ pity.

Jake’s a drake, who is a duck out of water.
The lake is where he wants to be and oughtta
But alas, his hen, Jen won’t leave the city life
for Jake this is a source of so much strife.

Lake Winnipeg is where he’d rather stay.
His only city friend is a solitary blue jay.
The lake is the place for a duck to get muddy
At the lake he has lots and lots of buddies
There’s Chuck the Buck, Kip the Chipmunk and Cabot the Rabbit.
Seeing his friends and conversing with them was his daily habit.

Jake flew to the lake and with a loud quack,
said “Hey you guys it’s good to be back.
I’ve missed you all, but Jen the city won’t forsake
I wish I could get her to just come see the lake.
You know this is where I’d rather live
But Jen won’t yield, she just won’t give
I’m late for dinner and I’ve got to get back.”
So he bid a quick farewell; alas and alack.

“It was so good to see our old friend Jake
He’s been absent too long from our home, the lake.”
Chuck, Kip and Cabot put their heads together for ideas
How could they persuade Jen to get over her fears?
Just then, Flo heard the guys talking
She wasn’t aware of Jen’s balking.

Flo said to her hubby, “Chuck, if you please
I’ll enlist the help of the girls, you see.
we’ll find a way to help Jen feel at ease,
I’ve got an idea, leave this to me.”

So Flo the Doe, called Tabitha the Rabbit and Tip the Chipmunk
And let them know that Jake is in a funk.
Tip said, “I wondered why I hadn’t seen him around
I didn’t know Jen was so tightly wound.

These compassionate wives formed a huddle
and decided to travel to see Jen in her pitiful puddle.
Tip and Tabitha hopped up on Flo
And off to the city they did go.
“Hi Jen, we’re glad to meet you, we know your husband Jake.
We’ve brought you a snack of invertebrates from the lake.”

Jen looked up with a tear in her eye. Then choked up and let out a sigh.
“I’m sorry I’ve been such a drag you all must think I’m such a hag.
I’ve never lived on a lake and I’m afraid of leaving town.”
Why don’t you see for yourself? – come on down.
The lake is so peaceful, the air is superb
Better than having a view of a city curb.

Come for a visit, just give it a try.
You’ll be back home in a jiff, since you can fly.
The lake is a really nice place to reside
the air is clean and the view is wide.
We’ll leave you now so you can think and decide.


Jen munched on the snack the gals had brought
She’d never had lake invertebrates, freshly caught.
Jen enjoyed this newfound snack
And now she wanted to give something back.

“These three strangers thought enough to bring me a gift
I’ll consider what they said; I shouldn’t give them the short shrift.”

Jake returned home to find Jen in deep thought
“Hi honey, look what my new friends brought!
I’ve had a visit from the wives of your buddies
I really didn’t mean to be a fuddy duddy.
Can we fly to the Lake so I can take a peek?
Maybe we’ll stay a day or a week.”

And so Jake and Jen flew to the lake
The fresh air made Jen feel awake.
The fear left her and she felt as she ougghta
a duck in the city is a duck out of water!
Jen was so happy she never looked back
Her new friends helped her get on track.
Jake and Jen lived happily ever after, Quack! Quack

CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:
Bring masculine outdoorsy cards, extra points if it features a lake or deer, or birds, or chipmunks or rabbits. Our recipient has a good sense of humour (humor for those South of the border) so funny cards are also welcome. Please no frilly cards. Masculine is the key.

EPEC (EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES!)***Extra cookies if you include Scripture.***

DESTINATION STATION:

This week our destination is Winnipeg, MB Canada. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Bob? Bob was brought to our attention by his daughter, our fellow Teapotter, Charlene (crystaldolphins). Many of us are familiar with her gorgeous creations. Here is a link to her gallery.

For more information as well as the address to mail your card to please visit Post #322 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 a link to Charlene's card
Here is a link to my card.

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #223 Challenge Gallery.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT223 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? SCS has given Cindy (Mothermark) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

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

well, I committed myself to a few to many things this week so don't have time to make a card but I do have this fun camping card I made for DTGD that still needs a home so it is on the way to Mr Mitchell....

DTGD, Camp trip by Ksnurse - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I think it's outdoorsy enough, even if it has a moose instead of deer....and a little bit of humor....

Hi ya'll! I fixed my "striped" deer. As I noted, I didn't want him to think he was part zebra! Hee!

I can't seem to remember to post my card here in the forum. Here is my card for Tom, posted yesterday in the challenge gallery. Sorry, I had to girly it up just a bit with some ribbon and bling, hopefully he won't mind!

Hi ladies. I am just letting you know that I won't be able to participate in our group for a few weeks. I am having neck surgery on Friday. I have two vertebrae that are chipped and the bone is pressing on my spinal cord. It's a 4-5 hour surgery with 3 day stay in the hospital with 3 months recovery. I will be back as soon as possible. I will miss you ladies and your beautiful creations.

I will put my tickle a teapotter card in the mail tomorrow.

I've finally finished commenting on all of the cards in this gallery! wow! Wow! wow! I feel like I have taken a trip down memory lane. Seeing all the different and beautiful cards was like looking at photos of different properties they have owned or different things we did! Thank you so much for each and every card. They are ALL PERFECT! Both mom and dad will appreciate the work and care and details that have gone into every one. He has received a few so far and is enjoying them so much. He has no idea how many more are coming!

He ended up in the hospital again last night. I will get an update tonight. He is dehydrated again and hopefully that is all. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. Huge hugs from my mom and dad and me
