My StoryBook...Part Two...

Hello...Before I share more of the story I would like to share some of my musings about our adventure in FunTown. I don't know about you but...I think that an adventure begins with...A buying trip to purchase some new fashion ensembles...after all...there will be many snapshots of me and my traveling companions...We all want to look our best. Next is the packing of our suitcase...so much planning...the right shoes, the evening wear, the casual sportswear and let's not forget the bikini should you be going the seaside. The excitement builds as you set your alarm for your departure.

 I believe that a true adventure begins when you cross a body of water...it suggests that you are going somewhere far away and exotic.

An international journey requires a currency exchange...How fun is it to have a pocket-full of foreign currency. In FunTown they use Tiddly Winks for money...Very clever of them...this way if you want to play a game with a new friend...you can.

Oh...Your lodging is integral to the success of your trip. Tasty food, a comfortable bed, scenic views and let's not forget the little shampoo bottles. Party favors are good.

The cuisine at your destination is always so tasty. It is so fun to go to the famous eateries that are suggested in the travel brochures...as we often tire of the hum-drum  restaurants in our hometowns.

These thoughts are what I had in mind when I imagined Ginny McFinny's visit to FunTown. My first international vacation was in Paris. The excitement of the new country stamps in my shiny new passport. the Euros in my new handbag, the pastries, the fancy meals, the touristy snapshots, the glasses of French red wine served at sidewalk cafes and most important...the warm memories that I will cherish forever. This is what I wanted Ginny to experience. I hope that you enjoy her warm memories also.

My Storybook Welcome to FunTown is available here at my web site.

Have a Bonnie Voyage...Jody, the smiling traveller

Once Upon a Time...

Hello...I realize that over  the last few months I have shared photos from my storybook...but I haven't shared the story with you. If you want to visit the shop...click here...

Let us begin at the beginning,

Allow me to introduce you to Ginny McFinny and her trusty little sidekick, "Pip-Squeak." The story begins when she discovers that the Goody-Goody Gumdrop Candy Company advertised that they were sponsoring a candy-selling contest with the Grand Prize being an all-expense paid trip to FunTown, a place that Ginny had dreamed of all of her life.

So she and Pip-Squeak went door to door in her hometown selling the tasty Goody-Goody Gumdrops...she was very successful as she is charming and quite determined to win.

Hip-Hip Hooray! She was the winner. A lovely little fellow named Hoppy-Go-Lucky escorted her on her journey.

Hoppy was a charming tour guide...I got to make friends with all of the fine citizens of FunTown.

Here is the cliff-hanger...To Be Continued...

Have silly curious fun....Jody, the teaser
