Default MMTPT276 ~November 12, 2013~ It's Donald We're Booin', Our Town He Will Ruin

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #276


It's Donald We're Booin', Our Town He Will Ruin

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. Saturday has come again and with it a trip to Lake Wobegone MN. If you don't already know, Wobegone is the little town that time forgot, and the decades cannot improve. It is said that the women are all strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average. Out on the edge of the prairie, little happens to upset the status quo.

2. Every since they were first married in Wobegon, Marge and Sven Olsen take a drive on Saturday afternoons - just to enjoy the beautiful countryside. Up and down the gently rolling prairie, each week they see the same beautiful Minnesotan scenery, flora and fauna. Other than the gentle transformations as seasons pass, nothing ever really changes.

3. Donald DaVeloper has heard about Lake Woebegone and thought that there was something was missing...condos!! Lakefront properties, 8 townhome-style units to a building, dozens of buildings, all with covenants and homeowner associations and gates to keep the locals out. Donald set out to buy all of the lakefront land that he could lay his hands on. His planned community plan was to completely change the community.

4. Word got out about Donald's scheme. The Olsen's and all of their friends began to fret - how could anyone want to change Lake Wobegone? They had to convince their neighbors not to sell out the town. They asked all of the townies to join them on their weekend drive to remind them what a special place their hometown is. But is it too late?? Don't sell your fine land, he'll make it all bland. It's Donald we're booin', our town he will ruin.

Challenge Translation:
Bring country scenes, farms, nature, lakes ... anything that you'd love to see on a country drive.

EPEC ~ (Extra Points for Extra Cookies!)
Bring some Minnesota loons - or any wild birds - with your scene.

Here is some additional musical inspiration:



Destination Station:
This week our destination is Hibbing, Minnesota. If you would like a destination for you card, how about Peggy? Peggy is the mother of Foxy67's son's girlfriend.



To find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit post 377 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 a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #276 Challenge Gallery.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT276 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 Sheri (KSNurse) 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. Feel free to grab this I survived Teapot Tuesday Badge for your blog!

It is almost 7.30 Tuesday night here, so I guess that means most of you are in bed. Sweet dreams.

I'm hoping this looks like a scene from Minnesota farmland. I love this stamp so I was happy to be able to use it. HERE is my "Down on the Farm"

Sorry, I'm a bit short on time this week so I just used today's sketch to make a little autumn scenes - no loons but I did add a flight of birds.

Hi Everybody..This is a short note I got from Kathy. Peggy's daughter(mmtpt276 challange) She was here last week and picked up the cards.

"I'm home. I got home Saturday afternoon. Pat and the boys were really happy to see me. Mom and I opened the cards before I left and they were BEAUTIFUL. I don't know what's going on for Chemo yet I'll find that out after Thanksgiving."

Pat is my son. Kathy stayed with her Mom for a while. but she got some one now to watch her Mom. and take her to apointments...I think Peggy is getting a port in after Thanksgiving..It's hard on Kathy too when she lives so far away, but had to get back to work. I THANK everyone for all the cards they sent and Peggy said To make sure I thank everyone for her.
THANK YOU ALL..
Hugs
Pat(foxy67)
