Teaser Tell All Time

Standard

Here we are again – talkin’ Teaser Tell All!

Looks like yesterday’s photo was (in the scheme of things) an easy one for most of you because quite a few of you will be getting a RIGHT NOT FIRST badge……but only ONE will get the FIRST RIGHT badge……..and you’ll have to wait to hear about that!

Up first is telling you WHO our FIRST COMMENTERS were………………………………..let’s have a drumroll PLEASE

OUR THREE FIRST COMMENTERS WERE:

SHARON, INGRID and KATTY (and the Weims)

Wahooooo for the Winners!

Here’s your badge ladies – you each get one of these:

I was one of THREE First Commenters on the Teaser of August 9, 2022 – YIPPPPEEE!

WE couldn’t be First Commenters because the BUS WAS LATE!

Well that happens sometimes – – – too bad – – – maybe next week??!!

Let’s move on shall we?    Here’s the Teaser photo we had yesterday………………it was a GUEST TEASER photo.

 

This beautiful photo is of PARIS, FRANCE rooftops and we thank Csilla’s Cousin Anna – who also lives in Budapest – for allowing us to use this image for TEASER!!

WHO GUESSED THE TEASER PHOTO LOCATION FIRST????

KATTY (and the weims) !!

WAAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

That means they win the DOUBLE WINNER BADGE because they were a FIRST COMMENTER and FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!

We were the FIRST RIGHT GUESSERS and FIRST COMMENTERS on the Teaser post photo of August 9, 2022! WOW!

Did you also guess correctly????  If you did, you get one of these badges:

Well I guessed RIGHT on the Teaser post of August 9, 2022 but I was NOT FIRST…..at least this week……!

If you guessed but you were WRONG with your guess, this badge is yours!:

DARN! I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser photo of August 9, 2022. Maybe next week I’ll be RIGHT ON!

Cheer Team?  You’re on!!

Hip Hip Hooray!!!

Teaser Tuesday Time!

Standard

Hi Ho Students!   It’s that time again – HAVE YOU COMMENTED YET?

Yes it’s Tuesday AGAIN and we’re ready to either stump you or make you feel extra smart because you recognize where the photo was taken immediately.     It’s a GUEST TEASER so put on your thinking caps!

“WAIT – we said THINKING CAP not CAT!!”

“Har De Har – very funny”

Why do I think you’re being sarcastic Roger?    OK – let’s get down to business.   Here’s the rules and the badges up for grabs today:

Alrighty then……without further ado – our Security Guard will bring in today’s TEASER!

“Here’s the photo Professors!”

 

How’s that for a Teaser?    Maybe it’s EASY but maybe it’s HARD………….you’re the only ones who can answer that!!

“I’d like to prowl around on those rooftops!”

Well they’re a little steep for us but you young whippersnappers might enjoy the challenge of those rooftops!     Let’s bring the Cheer Team in for a little CHEER shall we?????

Today we’re cheering out of the pool
Because we’re off to ballet school!
The Teaser today looks harder than a rock
If someone guesses right we’ll all be in shock
Just study hard and give it a shot
Now go have a meal in your favorite spot!
Miss D has things ready on the cafeteria line
We took a quick peek and it all looks mighty fine!

I think the Cheer Team has the right idea – let’s wander over to the Fish School Cafeteria for something to eat – a little brain food purrrhaps?

Hello Students!   Time to fill your tummies with something yummy!

SPARK on Monday

Standard

Time for a SPARK.  “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when she stopped blogging some time ago. It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it. Although Annie isn’t currently blogging, a lot of us who enjoyed her SPARKS decided to keep posting SPARKS of our own.

I am fairly certain I’ve seen this SPARK before but when I found it – it didn’t matter if I had or hadn’t.  I just like it a lot and wanted to make it my “inspiration” for the coming week.

I have a lot of small cracks……………but I still feel far from broken – I am more resilient and have stood the test of time for almost 75 years – I have yet to fall apart!    I might have come close but maybe that’s what life is all about.    I’m not going anywhere until whatever my purpose was in being brought into this world has been fulfilled.    Period.

Besides – there is always hope!

Hugs, Pam

 

Sunday Selfie Blog Hop

Standard

Sunday’s here!   That means it’s SELFIE day at The Cat On My Head.    If you’d like to join the hop you can click their badge above and link up.    Our chance to show ourselves off to the world by posting a selfie.

My selfie this week is rather boring – just me sitting on the front sidewalk looking around for some action.    Whether it’s a skink poking its’ head out from under the sidewalk or a chipmunk dashing between holes under the holly trees OR the cat next door who mooches breakfast from us most mornings.   Even though she’s in her own yard I see her and want to flex my considerable muscle (some say its’ fat – I say it’s muscle) to make sure she knows this is MY house.    She can visit (she spends the night on MY front porch when her humans leave her out for the night) and get a meal from here but that’s the extent of how far I put the welcome mat out !

SO – here’s the gem Mom has of the BACK of me on the lookout:

THEN she put it in Lunapic so she could make it somewhat more interesting than a picture of a big cat from the back sitting on a sidewalk minding his own business.

 

Whoa!  Put on your sunglasses to look at this one!   This is me with Lunapic’s “FLOWERS” art effect at 100%.

Yes of course we did a jigsaw puzzle………………this is quite an effect isn’t it – you can see lots of flowers around – I think if Mom had reduced the intensity to something like 50% it would have looked better but then SHE was the artist – I was the subject matter.    So here’s your puzzle:

  Just click this little photo for the puzzle and good luck!

 

Happy Sunday to everyone especially our Blog Hop hosts at The Cat On My Head!   

Hugs, Teddy

Bakin’ With Bacon and The King

Standard

Greetings bacon fans!     Well the HEAT is unending here in Castle Baconia which is what led me to think I’d share one of the Castle’s favorite nice, cool, crunchy and extremely delicious salads with you.    This is one that can be a whole meal.   At least the Royal Mom thinks so!    It’s refreshing and extra tasty especially with the mustard, apple cider vinegar, olive oil dressing.    You can add other ingredients if you like – some people like walnuts in it too but I’m a “purist”…………hahaha      Seriously, you may want to add other things and this is one of those recipes that is open to many additions per your taste so GO FOR IT!

 

Spinach, Apple, Bacon Salad

Ingredients

1 Granny Smith apple, halved, cored and thinly sliced

6 cups spinach leaves, washed and dried with paper towels

6 slices bacon – cut into 1/4″ strips

1 small shallot, chopped (optional but yummy)

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Directions

  1. Place spinach and apple slices into a large mixing bowl. Render bacon strips over low heat until crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon onto paper towels to drain. Add shallots to bacon fat and saute’ until soft and fragrant. Whisk in mustard, vinegar and then olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour dressing over spinach, add bacon and toss to wilt salad slightly.

 

Now doesn’t that just sound fabulous?    Well, it is.    The Royal Mom (and Royal Dad) both think so – and who are we to question royalty?

 

THIS RECIPE WAS BLESSED BY THE BACON FAIRY!

Keep cool…..and enjoy some bacon!   

Your King
