Default MMTPT267 ~Oh Freddy start croakin', Rick's heart will be broken!~

[
Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #267


Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. 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! 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. Ricky Rana's best bud was his dad. Together they would hike, fish, camp and do all sorts of manly stuff. Ricky was learning all about the natural world the best way possible. Ricky's very favorite thing to do was hunt frogs. Ricky new the names of every type of frog in his area...and could even identify them just by the sound that they made! Ricky had learned to be very quiet and still, to slowly approach the amphibians. He could sit still for long stretches just watching them croak or chirp or sing their way through the day.

2. Most of the time his dad made Ricky watch, but occasionally they would catch a frog with their fishing net. Once while they were fishing Ricky heard a loud "jug-o-rum" right where he was sitting and knew there was a bullfrog nearby. He caught the beautiful green specimen and this time his dad let Ricky take him home.

3. Ricky's mom wasn't thrilled but helped him set up a terrarium habitat for his new pet...who was promptly named Freddy of course! Freddy had a pretty cool pad on their shaded back porch. Every morning - even before he ate breakfast - Ricky would check on his pet. Ricky made sure that Freddy had fresh clean water, aquatic plants and plenty of small fish and insects to catch.

4. One day, Ricky got very sick and could not get out of bed. His parents took him to the hospital and found out that Ricky needed surgery. Ricky made his parents promise to take care of Freddy. They did, but when his mom was changing Freddy's water he hopped right out of the tank and away into the neighbors' yard. She chased and followed Freddy, but he was soon lost as lost could be. Oh Freddy start croakin', Rick's heart will be broken! You must not long roam, Ricky soon will be home!

5. Well you guessed 'er Chester...Teapotters have to go a frog-huntin'! Keep those pinkies up ladies as you crawl on your bellies through the swamp. I've heard from a very reliable source that flinging cookies is the best way to attract frogs!

I thought that this month I wouldn't have a song about a frog, but by a frog...remember this?


Challenge translation:
Make get well cards with frogs, fish or camping.

EPEC (Extra Points for Exta Cookies):
Include a heart on your card. But no flies as Ricky's mom will get mad! It will be the back door for all of us!

Destination Station:
This week our cards are going to Milwaukee Wisconsin. If you would like a destination for your card, how about Tyler? Tyler is the nephew of SCSer Mzinkspot .

WOW! What an amazing weekend. My husband bought tickets to go to the Eagles concert for our anniversary. We didn't get home until 1:30am. Both the music and the late night were nostalgic. I'm glad my card worked out the way I saw it in my mind as I'm still suffering from fried brain...late nights take a toll on creativity. HERE is my Freddy the Frog.

I haven't had time to make a card yet, but I wanted to share this poem.

What a wonderful bird the frog are
When he stand he sit almost;
When he hop he fly almost.

He ain't got no sense hardly;
He ain't got no tail hardly either.
When he sit, he sit on wht he ain't got almost.
Anonymous


I know the grammar is terrible, but it is funny---almost.

Such a slacker!! Sorry to post this so late, but I ended up having to work 4 12 hour shifts in a row to help cover a co-worker who is now in the hospital. Forgive me my Teapotter friends, here is my Confessions card.

I went bigger than frogs, although my crocs might try eating all the cute frogs in the gallery. Here's my card .

Does anyone know Mzinkspot's first name, so I can tell Tyler I heard about him from his aunt?

MMTPT267 Hoppin' Fun
It only took me six upload attempts, starting last night, to hop into the gallery.
And I saw some of the rest of you had problems too.
Lydia says they've rolled out a fix - so here's hoping it will be plain sailing from now on. .

I can't wait til Friday so I get home (I'm out of town on business) and make a card for Tyler. This really touched me for a couple of reasons - my son had chronic respiratory issues when he was little & was sick a lot, & my 74 yr old dad was recently diagnosed with a leaky heart valve. We have added Tyler & his family to our prayers!

Default Freddy the Frog card

So, I arrived home last night from a business trip & couldn't wait to make a card this morning. I have 2 photos - front & inside of card. Hope they come through! Prayers for healing! The frog on the outside of the card is on a wire spring. On the inside, my frog is jumping over a honey pop mushroom (Inky Antics set). TFL!
