Well it's the last Tuesday of the month....and that means the Teapotters send cards to each other...yep. Da Mudder throws our numbers into a hat and pulls out who we are to send our cards to.
Such fun...........anyhoo...on to my story......
Today we meet Mrs. Estelle T. Stump, (widowed) the schoolhouse grump,,,she's in a slump...... She's herd (ha) that the teapotters don't know their numbers and can't sleep. Danny D. Dweaner, the schoolhouse cleaner, wants to win her. So he's asked his niece,,, Sally Mae Add... to show the teapotters what it's all about.
Danny has herd Stump can't sleep
so he's sending counting sheep.
Now Sally Mae Add is 6 years old and that's as high as she can count. So she's given Stump the Grump her school tablet with 6 counting sheep,,,hoping this will help Grump sleep...and her Uncle Danny D. Dweaner will finally be able to proclaim his love for Stump the Grump. He told Sally Mae Add that he needs her to send 42,000 counting sheep but Sally can only fit 6 sheep on her writing tablet.
If the teapotters can learn to count to 6...will Stump the Grump get out of her slump ???? Will Danny D. Dweaner finally win her ????
Well.... Sally Mae Add got an A+ on her paper....so I'm a thinkin' all will be well.

Wow, A+ and a star. Awesome card for memory lane. I had a lay teacher for kindergarten, but nuns starting with 1st grade and all through 1st and 2nd grade - they were color star crazy. Our papers always had letter grades and the appropriate number and color of stars!! Finally, in 3rd grade, that nun said we were too old for stars! But the sparkly stars always glammed up the papers!
