Looking for the Teacup

03 Aug

Teacup Trail SignThere’s a new sign on one of my trails. There was a sign there before, but now  a new and improved sign has appeared.

I think somebody must have seen the sign I put up in my puddle a couple days ago and got jealous. That’s the only thing I can figure.

I wasn’t trying to compete with anyone. I don’t plan to start any sign wars by putting a better sign up in my puddle. But I do have to admit, this new trail sign is rather nice.

I’m kind of befuddled though. I’ve been walking on my trails a long time and I’m still looking for the teacup.

I know where the coffee pot is.

But I haven’t been able to find the teacup.

Maybe I’m looking in all the wrong places. Maybe that teacup isn’t big and red like the coffee pot.

What if this is the way to the tea party and I have to bring my own tea cup?

What if that butterfly I chased out of my puddle with my sign was the first guest at the tea party? And I ruined the party.

That’s terrible. I’m going to be known on my trails as a party pooper.

That does it! I’m heading out there right now and taking my sign down.

    you are so funny….If there is a Teapot trail it must mean that somewhere you can get a lovely cup of tea..yummy..I love my tea….Do you think that I might get a lovely cream cake with my cup of tea

      Patreciau, if I can find the teacup I’m sure I can find a cream cake for you too.

    oh my, Bongo… you sure do over-analyze things – just like me, sometimes!!! You were very funny today!!!

      Thanks BuddhaKat. I’m still looking for the tea party.

    Keep searching, B. Mom lets me lick the bottom of her teacup all the time, and it’s DELICIOUS! Warm and sweet. Yum. Find that teacup!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, now I want to find that teacup even more. I think I’ll get my person’s leash and take her out to the trail right now.

    LOL Bongo,look for the white rabbit. He knows where the teacup is, but you are going to have to catch him first because he’s late, he’s late, for a very important date…..Jaz

      Jaz, I can run faster than that rabbit. I’ll find him. Maybe I’ll find Alice too – and get loves from her.

      Dianda, do you think some of the puddles I’ve been finding have tea in them?

      • Dianda

        Not sure if it tastes good.

      • Bongo

        August 4, 2012 at 4:11 pm

        I’ll have to check them out and let you know.

    Wait – maybe it’s a sign by a bad speller and is really supposed to be ” Tree cut trail”? That would be even more strange… cut a tree? Do you look out for one and wait for “timber” shouts…or do they want people to cut trees only on this trail
    Bongo – I think I’ve been in the sun and heat too long – if you find that teacup, could you hand it to me?

    • Bongo

      August 3, 2012 at 5:12 pm

      Karen, I think you need the teacup. I’ll keep looking for it.

    Oh, no Bongo, you’re not a party pooper! You just take your teacup [and your person’s teacup] and go to the party!!!! Wonderful coffee pot by the way!

    • Bongo

      August 4, 2012 at 4:11 pm

      Marina, I think my person has some teacups stashed away in the cupboard. I’m sure I can convince her to share one with me.

    You sure are blessed to be able to walk in such a awesome place! The collies are jealous… Ginger is plotting an escape to go there, but then she is always plotting.. LOL…. if you ever find that teacup post a picture for if it is anything like that coffee pot it will be awesome too!

    • Bongo

      Ginger, I hope your escape plotting works. I would love to share my trails with you and you can help me look for the teacup.

    Wow!!! The Coffee Pot Rocks are gorgeous! I’m sure that the coffee in the pot tastes fab! 🙂

    • Bongo

      August 4, 2012 at 4:15 pm

      Thanks Kevin. I’ve been meaning to try that coffee, but I never seem to have a big enough mug with me when I walk by the coffee pot.

    Maybe the sign is wrong and it was supposed to say coffee?

    • Bongo

      August 4, 2012 at 4:16 pm

      Misaki, I think you’re right. I’m going to have to find that sign maker and tell him to fix it.

    Sedona is so beautiful. You’re lucky Bongo. I went there years ago, just me and my dog Smokey. (As a woman traveling alone, I had no trouble with him around.) It was the best vacation ever. The most interesting part for him was a huge tarantula. I loved how the huge red rocks clashed with the bright green trees and crystal blue water.

      Dawn, I really am lucky getting to walk on my trails here all the time. I don’t find tarantulas very often, but it’s pretty cool when I do.

    Great pictures of Coffee Pot Rock Bongo. There must be a tea pot rock somewhere – keep looking 🙂

    • Bongo

      August 5, 2012 at 2:48 pm

      Thanks Bassa. I’m still looking around for teapot rock. My person says she thinks there’s one somewhere around but probably on a different trail.

    Bongo, if there’s a coffee pot around, there also must be a tea pot somewhere, so keep searching, and if you’ve found it, I’ll come on over to your tea party 🙂
    Btw I have an award for you on my blog, so pick it up if you like.

    • Bongo

      August 5, 2012 at 3:07 pm

      Angels Whisper, I’ll let you know as soon as I find the teapot. It will be a really good party. And thanks loads for the award.

    Well, sweet Bongo we can see how they came to call those rocks Coffee Pot but how are they going to have a trail that resembles a tea cup? Maybe it don’t maybe there is another reason they have that sign there, when you find how what it is we sure hope you let us know. There is no way you ruined a party sweet Bongo you keep your sign up if you want. Hugs and nose kisses

      Misty Shores, I’m still looking for the teacup. So far I haven’t had any luck.

    We think your sign is fine Bongo it is your puddle. The new sign is really nice though and the Coffee Pot is beautiful. Maybe they got the new sign up but they haven’t gotten the teacup there yet!?

    • Bongo

      August 6, 2012 at 9:58 pm

      Lexie and Mica, that could be it. They jumped the gun on the sign. I bet a teacup will be appearing soon.
