All abooooard! Last call for the Tea Party Not-So-Express! Calling all tea partiers! For you adventurers who love the ocean, the sand, the sun, fishing, coffee, m&m candies, and touring beautiful lighthouses, this tugboat is for you! We are on our way to the beautiful province of Nova Scotia today with da Muddermark! We will be docking in Peggy's Cove.
SnoSnot (aka JoJot aka Joanne) and da Muddermark (aka Mothermark aka Cindy) are already aboard, but they ducked outta sight when Bertie (for those of who do not know who Bertie is, she is my alter ego) took this photo of the Tea Party Not-So-Express tugboat. Seems they forgot to get their passports updated, but they absolutely refuse to miss out on today's fun so they are stow-aways. Word has it that some of our lovely Canadian friends are going to vouch for them at the border, so no worries about any illegal activities.
The only thing you might want to be prepared for, though, is the fish part of this adventure. Seems we'll be required to catch about 42,000 pounds of fish on the commercial charter boat da Muddermark has signed on with on behalf of all tea party attendees. And, yes, you WILL be required to bait your own hook! Bertie acquired some special fish bait to lure some fishies to come along her; you can see some of them happily swimming right next to the Tea Party Not-So-Express tugboat. Just think how tired they are going to be by the time they arrive at Peggy's Cove....just in time for the fish slingin' contest Bertie heard about. Da Muddermark is giving her entire stamp collection to the tea partier who can fling their fish the farthest! Woo-hoo!
So bring your fishin' pole and gear; wear your fishin' attire; enjoy the beautiful sights in Nova Scotia; and party down with your tea partyin' friends today. You don't even have to bring your own lunch. Bertie is servin' espresso, lattes, regular coffee, and m&m candies on the tugboat to hold ya'll over until lunch that is bein' served up by Sabrina and MariLynn! The menu? Why, fish, of course! So, if you decide to join us today, you can go to da Muddermark's glob for all the slimy details!
Author's Note: I have so come to love Teapot Tuesday as hosted by Mothermark. We have so much fun and now Cindy even has her very own challenge thread on Splitcoaststampers that you can check out here! Please come join us. We need all the fishermen we can get today if we're going to catch 42,000 pounds of fish!!
