Default MMTPT337 ~January 13, 2015~ Tonight's Success Factor Depends on a Tractor

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #337


Tonight's Success Factor Depends on a Tractor

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. Jayne’s high-school heart went a-flutter whenever she saw Blaine. Tall and ruggedly athletic, Blaine was always ready to play a prank on one of his many friends…or laugh when someone was able to prank him. Even though Blaine was always friendly to her, Jayne didn’t think that he felt the same. Quiet and studious, Jayne was by all appearances quite the opposite of Blaine.

2. One Sunday in church the pastor announced that a hayride was scheduled for the youth next weekend. All of the young people were encouraged to invite someone from outside the congregation to join them. Jayne saw this as her opening and on Monday summoned her courage to ask Blaine to accompany the group. Much to her delight, his trademark smirk came over Blaine’s face as he said “Sure, that sounds like a lot of fun!”

3. The week seemed to last forever, but Saturday finally came and Blaine met Jayne at the farm. She didn’t notice, but Blaine was just as nervous as Jayne…you see, Blaine’s heart went aflutter when he saw her too. He was thrilled to have an opportunity to spend time with Jayne outside of school. – even if it was with a large group on a cool evening.

4. When the time came to board the ride, Blaine held out his hand for Jayne to steady herself as she stepped on a bale of straw and up onto the wagon. Despite her nerves, she found it easy to speak to Blaine and soon they were talking as though they had known each other forever. Jayne was singing inside as the others climbed aboard one by one. As the teens took their places, Jayne couldn’t imagine anything more perfect!

5. The farmer jumped up into the seat of the International Harvester tractor and started to crank the engine…and failed. Pause and try again…and again…and again – but the tractor stood silent. The teens groaned and Jayne’s heart sank. Her perfect evening was quickly turning into a disaster. Oh Farmer please start it we must now depart this. Tonight’s success factor depends on this tractor.

6. Ruh- roh Teapotters it seems as though we are going to have to get a replacement vehicle – and fast!!! Jayne and Blaine’s future could rest upon it! Let’s muster 42,000 tractors to save the day (or the night!).

Here is a little bit of musical inspiration:


Challenge Translation:

Bring your tractors - red or green or anything in between. Bring farming implements or vegetables from your garden. ...but don't bring any flat tires or broken gearboxes or it's the back door for you!

EPEC ~ (EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES!)
Some inspirational quotes or scripture would help a garden grow...

DESTINATION STATION:

This week our destination is Pittstown, NJ. If you would like a destination for your card, how about Lloyd? Lloyd is the uncle of momof5sons (me).
To find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit post #440 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 Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #337 Challenge Gallery.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT337 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

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.
