This is Mo's Real Story:
When I was pregnant with my daughter we decided to name her Maureen after me. However, her middle name is Rose after my husband's favorite Johnny Cash Song "Give my love to Rose". We call my daughter Rose or Rosie. So when I told my husband the exciting news that I would be hosting Tea Pot Tuesday and I needed his and Rosie's help picking out a tea pot and story, they suggested this one. I also wanted to make it easy knowing that it is a holiday week and most of us Woman will be doing the preparing and cooking! My love and regards to the Mothermark.... Can't wait for your return!

Tea Party Story:
Today we are taking a trip to Grand Ole Opry! Johnny Cash came back to pay us ladies a visit at our tea party! He loves a party! He is personally singing for us our favorite Johnny Cash Song: Give my Love to Rose:

I found him by the railroad track this morning
I could see that he was nearly dead
I knelt down beside him and I listened
Just to hear the words the dying fellow said

He said they let me out of prison down in Frisco
For ten long years I've paid for what I've done
I was trying to get back to Louisiana
To see my Rose and get to know my son

Chorus:
Give my love to Rose please won't you mister
Take her all my money, tell her to buy some pretty clothes
Tell my boy his daddy's so proud of him
And don't forget to give my love to Rose

Tell them I said thanks for waiting for me
Tell my boy to help his mom at home
Tell my Rose to try to find another
For it ain't right that she should live alone

Mister here's a bag with all my money
It won't last them long the way it goes
God bless you for finding me this morning
And don't forget to give my love to Rose

Chorus:
Give my love to Rose please won't you mister
Take her all my money, tell her to buy some pretty clothes
Tell my boy his daddy's so proud of him
And don't forget to give my love to Rose


If you want to come in the front door of the Grand Ole Opry tea party bring a card with any of the following: A rose (or your favorite flower), country song theme, Johnny Cash Theme, or a card for your daughter/mother. Additionally, I try to make all of my cards FUNctional, try to add that to the challenge!

Thanks for having me as our Host this week and I hope everyone has a VERY Happy THANKSGIVING! Gobble Gobble!

What a delightful challenge, Maureen! Thank you for hosting this week. I'm fairly certain that I'll be late, as usual, but I will be there!

Happy tea partying everyone! Thanks for leaving the light on for our MM until she returns.

Well I fell in to a burning ring of fire; I went down, down, down and the flames went higher, the ring of fire, the ring of fire...

Whoooo Hoooo! I shall sleep on this one.

Wow - those are some cool options! My grandmother's name was Rose and I have a cow I named Rosie and I love Johnny Cash (ghosts are pretty cool too - have we ever had a ghost at a teaparty before?) - this should be fun!

Like a Rose
Argh, can't believe the trouble I had printing my non-country sentiment. DH is at home, because there's a public-sector strike today. He's only a contract worker in his company and not in the union, but his manager advised him to take the day off. Thank goodness he has the holiday days worked up to do it and still get paid! He works in DTP, and he had trouble getting that verse to print...
Now I have to face the wind and rain and go off and post it!
Thanks for a great challenge, Maureen.

Ghosts??? It took my awhile to figure out what you were saying Nancy. I think I need to get my cup of coffee and my brain.

Great teapot and challenge Maureen.
