Default MMTPT319~ September 9, 2014 ~ Those Signs Should Be Brightened ~

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #319


Those Signs Should Be Brightened, But Now We're Just Frightened!


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!

Actually, before I get to the story, I wanted to share that last month I got to meet our Sheri aka KSNURSE IRL!! She is simply the most delightful, beautiful and amazing lady - it was such a gift to be able to spend some time with her. The fact that she can work night shift and coordinate the Teaparties is astounding. Mwwwaaaaahhhh Sheri! Now, onto the story:

1. Gertie Gussie is the most gregarious gal in Gainsville. She is always talking to someone, sharing a story and often a giggle - she sure does know how to make other people happy - and that makes her happy too!

2. Even though she herself was getting up there in the birthday candle count Gertie runs a sort of a taxi service. She drives all kinds of people to doctor appointments, the bank and post office, grocery shopping, over to visit sick friends and just about any errand you could imagine. Sometimes she will just take someone for a ride on a sunny Sunday so that they can get out of the house...and of course she won't accept money, even for gas.

3. One rainy evening Gertie was in a part of town that she doesn't usually frequent. She came up to an intersection that wasn't well marked and missed seeing a yield sign. It seemed that the other car came out of nowhere and Gertie had caused a fender bender.

4. The young policeman who came to investigate was trying to make a name for himself on the force. He asked Gertie to read a sign well down the road. When Gertie couldn't read it, he gave her a ticket and took away her drivers license, telling her that she would have to get some specs before she would be able to get her driving privileges reinstated.

5. Poor Gertie! Poor Gainsville!! How can the 42,000 people of town ever be able to get where they are going?? If that sign had been brighter Gertie surely would have seen it and none of this ever would have happened. Oh Gertie we need you, the cop only squeezed you. Those signs should be brightened, but now we're just frightened!

6. I guess that this is where we come in, Teapotters. Gainsville needs to be a bit brighter, don't you think? And while we're at it, maybe we could get that rookie policeman a sense of humor...

Here is a ditty that some of us can relate to:




CHALLENGE TRANSLATION
:
Make a bright, fun card. If there are only tasteful neutrals we may not even let you in the back door...(just kidding - you know that you are always welcome here!!)


EPEC ~ (EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES!)

Make a card to tickle the funny bone - it would be great to have funny images and sentiments filling the gallery this week!


DESTINATION STATION:

This week our destination is Aurora, CO. If you would like a destination for your card, how about Connie aka Connie Jo9? Connie is a Teapotter from way back and she is the sister of the one and only Mutnik. Connie is having a bit of a rough go right now and needs some Teapotter love. To find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit post 422 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 MMTPT319 Gallery

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given Sheri (KSNurse) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

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.

I just went with bright colour and not fun! Sorry, short of time this week since I'm going to be out all day tomorrow, which is my day off.

Spot on trend with the eye-chart teapot. I've been seeing quite a few eye-chart themed stamps recently. But I don't have one.

I've been doing the Teapot challenge long enough that Connie was a regular when I started. I'm sorry to hear of her misfortunes and I hope this card will cheer her up.
