Destination Station Teapot Tuesday #100

Silly Sydney is really Elaine, a very close friend of Cat (Catgondek) and a teapotter who has been diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus. Elaine recently had a very serious surgery. Elaine truly does love the ocean and has a dream of seeing it first hand. Knowing that Cat has spent a great deal of time around the ocean she has often asked Cat what its like to feel the sand between your toes, hear the ocean waves, etc. Wasn't it a wonderful idea of Cat's to bring the ocean to Elaine? To move her to a happy spot during this difficult time? Elaine won't be able to make a trip to see the ocean but our cards will bring it to her along with well wishes! Elaine has two dogs (Annie and Sweetie) who most definately are the joy of her life! Guess what? They also share the dream of chasing frisbies on the beach!

Poor Elaine! She is living on jello! Can you imagine? Hey, speaking of Jello.......Elaine has been to a couple our our teaparties so she knows how they sometimes get a little rowdy! All you rowdy teapotters, here's your chance to sling some jello (not you Bertie!) at a fellow teapotter if you so choose.....Elaine won't have to go to the store if we sling a box of jello or two at her along with our cards! Of course that's just an option, we all know that alot of the teapotters are just too well behaved to sling jello and would feel better just sending a card!!

Here is Elaine's Address:

Elaine Elford
1301 Shirley Drive
Ypsilanti, MI 48198

Thank you so much! And Cat thanks you also. Her friend Elaine (and ours) will love her visit to the beach!

Thanks everyone!

UPDATE AS OF 3-26-11 ~ by Cat (Catgondek)

Elaine is still having health problems due to her reconstructed esophagus and is on a severely restricted diet. Blessedly, she has been allowed to work from home and is trying to put in enough hours to remain full time so that she can pay her bills although some weeks her health problems don't let her. She is still able to manage alone, still eating lots of jello and other easily digested things, and still dreaming of someday seeing the ocean.
