The Wee Plum Pot Goes To Altadena
The Canadian Royal Mounted Police Beaver escorted the Wee Plum traveling pot to her new May digs in sunny Altadena. We are so very glad to have her for the month of May and have planned oh so many tea-ventures for her! Karen, April's Teapot hostess, sent the teapot with many delicious treats and some wonderful gifts. Tea towels, recipes, goodies... I can hardly wait to enjoy it all and share it with friends. Thank you, Karen, for such a thoughtful gift. Because her arrival coincided with our weekly Game night, Captain Beaver of the RCMP and the Wee Teapot came to game with us. Captain Beaver rolled a critical hit against a hydra. It was very exciting, and, a totally new experience for him. Royal Canadian Mounted Beavers don't play D&D very often. The DM, a frequent traveler to the British Isles and Ireland in particular, was delighted to have a teapot come to gaming. In fact, he totally hogged the teapot all night and has requested that a teapot with cosy become a regular fixture of our weekly gathering. We will have more traditional teatimes later, but if the Traveling Teapot is all about sharing tea with friends, we got off to a great start.
