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!

Before we get into the nitty gritty of today's challenge, I must announce our A-Card-&-Me Award Winners. Now remember people, these two won extra cookies so make sure you sit by them at the teaparty today! What kind of extra cookies did they get? Well, my favorite! Move over! I'm sitting there! Snort!

The envelope please.......

And the winner in the category for Best of the Best ~ The Oscar for the Best Dressed in 2011 goes to:

Sophisticated Lady ~ AudreyAnn

Hey, where's the other envelope? Oh, its there, under those cookies!

The winner in the category for Worst of the Worst ~ The Oscar for the Worst Dressed in 2011 goes to:

Fashion Dottie ~ By Marleygo

Congratulations to our 1st Annual A-Card-&-Me Award winners! You both get extra cookies! Whoo hoo! Okay, I know we are on a time schedule here so I must get on with our teaparty!

This is my story!

1. You meet the strangest people at an event like the A-Card-&-Me Awards! Now don't get me wrong, there are some fabulous stars to rub elbows with which provides quite a thrill but some elbows we would not invite to tea! You've heard of Little League Parents, always pushing their kids to be the next multi-millionaire star baseball player, MVP in the World Series at the age of three! Well, its no different in the world of Oscar Awards. Parents pushing their kids to be the next multi-millionaire leading men and lady, Oscar winners at the age of 3! How do I know? Like I said, you meet the strangest people at an event like the A-Card-&-Me Awards!

2. This plays like a Hollywood Script! Meet Hamilton Hartford Horner. He is a well known Hollywood Director even though he hasn't won an Oscar for over 15 years. He's not been able to get much going. He has a wife of 35 years, Hettie Harmony-Horner. She was afraid to drop her maiden name for fear it might disrupt the harmony in her life!! Harmony to Hettie means holidays, good food and family. She is known around Hollywood as Holiday Hettie, famous for her yummy spagetti and Coach Teddy, her enormously successful brother! They have a child named Jack, he's as smart as a tack, but much too laid back. He cares about two things, spagetti noodles and poodles!

Little Jack Horner
Sits in the corner,
Eating Spagetti pie;
He slurped up a noodle,
Gave one to his poodle,
And said 'What a good boy am I!'

3. Says Coach Teddy, Hettie, okay! Alright already! I'm sick of spagetti! I'm ready alright? Alright all ready, I'm ready alright!! Now, no more spagetti, alright already? You see, Hamilton Hartford Horner knows that he could get an Oscar award if Coach Teddy would agree to let him make a movie of the story of his life. How he grew up surrounded by every sport known to man, his success in each and his un-canny ability to teach! And what better child to play the young Teddy than his own child Jack! They may even win two Oscars for their family! Hettie has been inviting Teddy over for spagetti for 15years trying to get him to agree to allow Hamilton to produce and direct "The Coach's Corner Starring Little Jack Horner!" It's a happy day in Hollywood, he finally said they could!

4. Mission #1? Accomplished! Mission #2? That is where we come in! Little Jack Horner has not a clue about sports! Not a clue, who knew? He loves oodles and oodles of noodles and poodles, that's all! So, its time for a crash course in all things sport! Bring basketball, baseball, and football. Bring tennis, soccer and swimming! Bring wrestling, boxing and track. Bring golf, bowling, and darts! Bring race cars, sky diving and bungy! Bring bull riding and bronc riding. Bring fishing and hunting. If it takes a coach to help win, then it's easily in!

If you bring a noodle or a poodle, you will be charged with breaking Little Jack Horner's focus and as a result you will be sentenced to the back door. What an adventure!

Challenge Translation:
Pretty cut and dry. Bring sports related cards! All kinds!

Teapot Tuesday Destination Station #135

This week's destination is Farmington, New Mexico. My sister who lives in Farmington, New Mexico brought to my attention the plight of a young 19 year old boy by the name of Bobby Riddle. The day after Thanksgiving Bobby was was involved in a terrible accident. While burning leaves he had a gas container explode in his hand. He was burned over 65% of his body. Bobby continues to be treated at a burn Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. As you can imagine, he is undergone several grafts and surgeries. He has recently made some progress by taking some steps and was able to no longer rely on get feeding tubes and a respirator. He may be released in early March so that he can come home to Farmington.

For more information including the address to mail your card to please visit Post #186 of The Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread, should you decide to send your challenge card to Bobby. 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 strictly voluntary.

Here is my card.
