Post MMTPT159 ~ IT'S ALL ABOUT THE VERT, SAID CURT!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #159

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE VERT, SAID CURT.
IT'S MORE ABOUT THE TREES, EXCLAIMED BREEZE!
WHAT ABOUT THE GOLF, SAID ROLF?


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. Well, August is half way gone and its just a matter of time before the scene on this little teapot is gonna be covered with the white stuff! As a matter of fact, if we could turn it around, I betcha the winter version is on the backside! This looks like quite the fun place to live doesn't it! What a wonderful little countryside village. I betcha the people at the top of the hill don't visit their friends at the bottom of the hill very often! Hey, they gotta get back home and that's quite a climb! Four wheel drive vehicles you say? Nah.....there aren't any motorized vehicles in this town!

2. This little town is filled with people from all walks of life! But there's a new threesome in town and the townfolk are not sure what to think. They have been quietly observing the three for a couple of weeks now and the verdict is still out! Part of the problem is that no one quite understands what they are talking about, why they are here, and if they are staying? The local law enforcement can't investigate as they have their hands full right now! It seems a herd of 42,000 renegade cows broke loose from their meadow and are trampling flowers beds and vegetable gardens. They seem to be on a mission, headed for the local Tea House and it has yet to be determined what their intentions are upon arriving!

3. Donatta Chucallme Asnoop, the local private investigator, has volunteered to investigate for nuttin' With a name like that what other career could he possible succeed at? But so far he has only one conversation to base any findings on! And this is what he overheard while in the bushes:

It's all about the vert, said Curt.
It's more about the trees, exclaimed Breeze!
Well, what about the golf, asked Rolf.

What is that supposed to tell him? He has a mind to catch up with the renegade cows and see if this Curt guy has any connection to the sudden and very determined departure of the cows from the meadow! Wonder if Elsie is in the office yet, she might come in handy to translate!

4. Here's the scoup, Asnoop! That Elsie is good! It seems there is a famous Entremanure in town by the name of Curt, The Squirt! The cows from the meadow are headed to the Tea House because he is holding a syposium, Entremanurial Expertise by the Exquisite Curt the Squirt! He is always looking to make money and even though he is town on personal business, he is taking time to share (I mean charge for) his expertise with the local cows from the meadow. He has been joined by two additional fellows from a successful new business called Recover Like No Other! Their slogan is Finding Shacks to Relax, We'd Lover to Recover! They specialize in finding women the perfect location for post surgery recovery, for a fee of course!! Evidently Curt has hired them to find the perfect place for a family member to relax after knee replacement surgery of all things! Who knew? Anyway, they have ventured to our little town to investigate! Curt's Aunt is an expert Snowboarder (that's why Curt is determined to find vert!), she loves and photographs trees almost daily (that's why Breeze wants trees) and she struggles at golf (that's why Rolf wants golf), a place to improve, what a good move! We are off to let our opinion known! And Curt says the Tea House is awesome! Whoot!

Do you agree with Curt? You should bring vert! (psst.....snow and snowboarder stuff!)

Do you agree with Breeze? You should bring trees!

Do you agree with Rolf? You should bring golf!

You have to come in the back door if you bring a cow. Curt's gig is sold out and the Tea House can't figure out where they are gonna seat all this Entremanurer wannabees! Yikes!

CHALLENGE TRANSLATION
Bring a wintery card, snow, snowflakes, snowboarding, snowy mountains.....
Bring lots of trees.....in the spring, in the fall, any season at all!
Bring golf......that sport where you hit that little white ball into a wee little hole in the grass!

DESTINATION STATION
This week's destination is Aurora, Colorado! If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Connie Jo! The sister of Fellow Teapotter Cathy (Mutnik~Curthy~Teapotter obsessed with Curt, The Squirt!) who is also a most dedicated and loyal Teapotter (Connie Jo9 aka Con-Aire) is having knee replacement surgery today while we are having our tea! This surgery has been planned for quite some time and Cathy brought it to my attention several months ago. Wow, how time flies! This week we get to bring a bright spot to the recovery of a fellow Teapotter by sending her some SCS Teapotter love!

For more information including how Connie became a snowboarder and how Curt became a Teapotter as well as Connie Jo's address, please visit Post #242 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 link to the one awesome card and here is a link to anudder awesome card that Mutnik and Curt made Connie!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given me permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Friday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send me a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater! If you dont' want to cheat, I am posting a sneak peak on my blog each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. I usually post it sometimes during the weekend before the next Tuesday!

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!
