Tuesday Teaser Class In Session!

Standard

Greetings Students………time for TEASING!   DID YOU COMMENT YET????  

Have a seat and get ready for  Teaser photo from a GUEST – one of our students sent this one in so let’s get started.

As you all know by now, the first thing we do when you arrive in class is give you a little “refresher” on our rules AND remind you of the cool badges we hand out to those who win them by being FAST or RIGHT or WRONG….hahaha.     Now, let’s get THAT out of the way so we can TEASE!

I know them by heart!

And here’s the bling you can win……………..you know you want one (or more!)

Yes I do want one or more or I will get VERY cranky!

Remember tomorrow’s class will be our TELL ALL where we find out who wins what………….and who will go home crying.

Well don’t be sad YET – wait until class tomorrow!

Let’s go ahead and get our Security Guard in to show you the photo – THEN we’ll get the Cheer Team here to RAH RAH RAH, SIS BOOM BAH you into working hard to figure it out!

SECURITY TO CLASSROOM FOR TEASER PHOTO! GET A MOVE ON!!!!

Here’s today’s Teaser photo Professors!

Thank you Guard Rusty………………….!    You’re doing a great job!

Where was this photo taken?    Sure is colorful isn’t it.   By the way this is NOT one of our students in the photo – it’s our student’s Cousin.    So you can study and get yourself a case of eyestrain as you do so then tomorrow you might be rewarded if you figure it out!

Eyestwain? Whazzat???

It happens if you use your eyes too much or your glasses aren’t “right” !

Everyone take it easy – take a break when your eyes bother you OK?     You’ll need your eyes for this next bit of activity here in class though because the pawsome ladies of our Cheer Team are on the way in to get you excited about guessing the Teaser!    Ready?

We’re overdue for our ballet class today
So you’ll have to forgive us if we can’t stop and play
Our ballet teacher insists we aren’t late
But since we’re her STARS we’re sure she will wait!
We wish you luck on the Teaser today
That’s actually all that we wanted to say…..
Tomorrow we’ll be back with the winners’ names
Maybe YOU will win a badge and a claim to fame???????

OK girls – hurry on your way – if you’re riding on your pink Harleys be sure and take your tiaras off or they’ll get squished under your helmets!

I’m gonna ride behind the biker babes to make sure they get to class alright!

Those of you who might be ready to have lunch can follow your Professors over to the lunch room.    If you wanna stay here and study the photo – please do……………….Miss Dingleberry set up a snack cart in the back of the room for you if you don’t want a BIG lunch.

Get your snack here! I have one of my staff in the cafeteria taking care of things for me.

Meanwhile in the cafeteria………………

Greetings Students!   Step right up – we’re ready to serve you your lunch choices!

Monday SPARK

Standard

What’s SPARKS???   You all know that Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – who started SPARKS – was hacked and has been on an extended break from blogging although her idea to spread some inspiration on Monday of every week goes on.   Many of us who participated in her SPARKS Blog Hop and found value in sharing a thought on Monday continue doing that to hopefully give each other a “Monday boost” – perhaps something to think about to inspire us in the week ahead OR help us deal with something that’s on our mind.

Our SPARK today is sort of a reminder to us that when life doesn’t go “our way” – that’s not necessarily a BAD thing!

One door closes and another one opens.     Sometimes what we thought would be our future doesn’t turn out that way so we find a NEW future.    I like this quote a lot…….it speaks to me and maybe it will speak to you too?

Monday Hugs, Pam

A P.S. Message from Teddy:    Teaser Fans – don’t forget – tomorrow is Teaser Tuesday – post up at a surprise time – it’s a GUEST TEASER PHOTO!   Be ready to comment first thing………..see you at school.

Junior Professor Teddy

Sunday Selfie Hop

Standard

Happy Sunday everyone.   Time for selfies in this fun hop hosted by Kitties Blue!    Today is a SPECIAL SUNDAY HOP because it’s Kitties Blue’s SEVENTH  BLOGAVERSARY!    Make sure and stop by to wish them a happy celebration…….AND they’re having a commentathon so make sure and check it out.     If you’d like to join in and show yourself off with us, just click the badge above, fill out the linky form and you’ll be strutting your stuff like the rest of us are!

My selfie today shows me inspecting a project my Mom is doing which is taking longer than it should…….she’s hemming a beautiful quilt my Auntie Carol made for her – but because she’s doing about 15 other things around here at the same time AND her arthritis in her right hand hurts when she does some things more than others, she’s taking a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG time to finish.   I just thought I’d take a peek and see how she’s doing………at this rate, she won’t have this project done for another week or so!

Hmm…..this is the back of the quilt – too bad you didn’t have it folded the other way round so everyone could see the front!    Well, when you’ve finished I’ll pose on it for you Mom!

Because this was a rather boring selfie, Mom decided to Lunapic it up a bit……………….here it is:

Then she of course made a puzzle for all of you who enjoy doing puzzles to go crazy on a Sunday!!

CLICK the MINI-ME for the puzzle – good luck!

Everybody stay cool……………………….it was 100 here yesterday and should be just about that again today.    Needless to say I have NOT asked to go outside for a walk – I’m not nuts!!   I’m a COOL cat!

Cool Man……..

 

Hugs, Teddy

Bakin’ With Bacon and The King!

Standard

Greetings Baconians!!!!!   

 

Another Saturday begins and here I am in the Royal Castle kitchen making yet ANOTHER incredible little snackable (or lunch) for you to try out.    If you like bacon and BBQ sauce, you’re gonna love this one – TRUST ME!

Cheesy Barbecue Bacon Pull-Apart Loaf

What a GREAT snack this is……………and easy peasy.    We like easy peasy right everyone?   RIGHT!!!!!    This one is right from Pillsbury…….and while you know you can use ANY biscuits – Pillsbury’s Grands are big and fit just right in a loaf pan.

Ingredients

1 can (16.3 ounce) Pillsbury Grands refrigerated biscuits

8 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled (about 3/4 cup)

1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon finely chopped green onions

8 slices Cheddar cheese (from 8-oz package), quartered   (I used sharp cheddar but that’s just because WE love it!)

1/2 cup barbecue sauce

I don’t usually include photos with recipes but thought it might help to SEE this one being made…………………….

Ready?

Steps

Heat oven to 350°F.  Line 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking parchment paper or foil; spray with cooking spray.
Separate dough into 8 biscuits; separate each biscuit into 2 layers, to make a total of 16 thin biscuits.

Top each thin biscuit with slightly less than 1 tablespoon bacon and 1 teaspoon green onions. Place 2 quartered cheese slices on each biscuit, slightly overlapping.

Make 2 stacks of 8 biscuits each. Place stacks on their sides in 1 long row in loaf pan.   Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until loaf is deep golden brown and center is baked through and no longer doughy in center, covering with foil if necessary to prevent excess browning during last 15 minutes of bake time. Cool 10 minutes in pan on cooling rack. Remove loaf from pan by lifting parchment paper from pan.
Drizzle top of loaf with 2 tablespoons of the barbecue sauce; sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon chopped green onion. Serve with remaining barbecue sauce for dipping.

Well this one is another quick and easy winner………………..Mom and Dad tried this one out while watching a British mystery on the tube (they watch a lot of those on PBS!) and it was gone in a flash.
Remember – bacon is a wonderful ingredient in almost EVERYTHING………hahaha………when you’re making something for breakfast, lunch or dinner (and if bacon is OK for you to eat!) think about adding some bacon to it.   Oh YEAH.    Which reminds me, Mom said she thought this loaf recipe would even be good if you put some chicken in that – thin slices of course!

 Long Live Bacon (well….you know what I mean)

It’s good to be King! 

Friendly Fill-Ins

Standard

Friday!   YAY!    It’s been a long and hot week here and I think you can say that for almost anywhere.   Summer is being MEAN this year.    I haven’t even asked to go outside.   That’s when you know its’ bad.    Today is fill-in Friday which is when our two co-hosts each give us two sentences full of holes – we fill in the holes (blanks!) and voila – we find out more stuff about each other.   Fun huh?   Well it is, and if you wanna join in – click the badge above and link up.

Here are our four sentences for this week.   Mom and I both filled in………..she did more than I did though!   Her words are BLUE and mine are GREEN.

1. I have been contemplating the possibility of one last European cruise for my husband and me – for our 30th anniversary next year.

2. I want to read a newspaper article about something uplifting/happy/positive JUST ONCE!.

3. People should worry less about getting older and more about enjoying whatever age they are NOW.

4. I want to make the world a better place by making people smile when they see me!!!.

 

Yep – that’s me and Mom for the week…………..we put our heads together and filled in the blanks.   Thanks to our co-hosts for giving us such fun every Friday.   Now I’m READY FOR THE WEEKEND!

Me and my Mom say HAPPY FRIDAY!    

Hugs, Teddy

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

Happy Thursday!   A big thanks to our buddy Brian for having this fabulous Hop which allows us to share each week what we’re thankful for.   Want to join in?   Click the badge above and link up to share.

This week I’m thankful that we haven’t had any visiting bears even though we did have a visiting fox the other night who insisted on screaming loud enough to wake me and my Mom and Dad up at midnight.    It didn’t last long – either it got what it was hunting or a bigger predator chased IT away!    We aren’t so sure we like living in a wildlife sanctuary (hahaha) – but we do have a lot of things out there and I guess I never really thought about it but we see:  groundhogs, skunks, deer, fox, flying squirrels, owls, hawks, vultures, chipmunks, squirrels, snakes, and all kinds of birds.   Just a lot of activity mostly down in our woods where you expect a lot of animals to live.    Bears only twice in 23 years.   So yes I’m thankful that while there are a lot of cool animals, they aren’t being aggressive.    Our last bear was minding his own business in fact!

I’m also thankful I got Angel Sammy’s poem for the week……………..here it is:

♥♥♥

It’s Time For Poetry Sharing!

Hello poetic friends……………did you write a poem this week?   Good!  Make sure and let us know you did in our comments here so we can read it.    If anyone new is tuning in, we share poetry every Thursday – poems we have written that were inspired by photos that I give you to THINK about all week before we share on Thursdays.    Give it a whirl.   Photos inspire all kinds of creative poetry!

Never written poetry before?  Well, that doesn’t mean you can’t…..you might like it.   Poems don’t even have to rhyme – they just need to stir someone’s imagination when they read it.   When you see a photo of ANYTHING, your mind tells you something about it whether it be good, bad, funny, sad – you feel different things that are easily converted into WORDS.    That’s a poem!

Here’s the photo I gave you last week followed by MY poem…………..then I’ll show you the photo I have for you to use for NEXT Thursday’s Poetry Day.

“Wearing Dinner”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©July 17, 2019

 

YIKES, I hope the plastic sheet is on the floor

WOOPS I splashed some on the door

UHOH I’ve got it in my hair

EEEK I think it’s gone everywhere!

YAY I can wear my bowl like a hat

OH BOY Mom’s face got red at that!

“Basketti” is the funnest thing to eat

Tasty red sauce from my head to my feet

The only bad thing about “basketti”

Is that I’ll have a bath before I’m ready!

Baths at night are best when I put on my jammies

After Mom’s cleaned the food out from my nooks and crannies.

Tomorrow morning we’ll start over again

When I dribble my cereal milk down my chin!!!

 

There’s just no doubt that babies have FUN when they eat.    This little kid sure had a blast with his “basketti” didn’t he.   His Mom probably spent some time getting the mess cleared up but know what?   She didn’t mind a BIT!   It’s what Moms do.    I know when I was a kitten once in a while I’d wind up with food on my nose or paw or chin and Mom never minded cleaning me up and I made sure to thank her with lots of love in my eyes!

Now here’s your photo for next week and I hope you will join us by writing a poem to fit this photo………………………c’mon you can do it………………

My Mom loves this photo.    She says it brings back some great memories.    Waiting for an ice cream sundae?   Malted?   Fountain cherry coke?    Mom says she loved them all.   

So – it’s a date – I’ll be back next week with MY poem – and I hope you will be here with yours to share…………………….until then – have a happy week!

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Your Forever Friend and Poet, Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

 

Thank you brother Sammy……………….I miss you even though I never knew you…………………hope everything is good at the Rainbow Bridge…………………………..

Love and Hugs, Teddy

And a LOT of you were right this week with your guesses so each of you who WERE right – get one of these of your very own:

I was RIGHT with my Teaser guess on July 16, 2019, but I was NOT the FIRST…..DARN!

Darn, Darn, Double Darn – I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of July 16, 2019…..At least I tried!

Well wasn’t THAT fun???    Let’s see what our Cheer Team has to say about this week’s Teaser results shall we?

It’s too hot for us to leap around
Here in Sarge’s hot tub there’s not a sound
Ours is being fixed so he let us hop in
He filled it with cold water so it’s a POOL we’re in!
Congrats to Sharon and Janet for being FAST
We hope that your good luck will last!
Who was First Right for class this week?
It was Phenny the Weim all grey and sleek!
Now pardon us if we do a little dipping in the tub
We’re starting our own skinny dipping club!

OK girls………..I think you maybe gave us too much information about your lack of swim suits but then again – we Professors are just old fuddy duddies!

They’re nekkid?

WOW

I can’t look – I’m too young for x-rated stuff!

OK students – let’s end today by having a good lunch or brunch in the cafeteria shall we?    You all did VERY WELL this week with the Teaser…………….next week we have another Guest Teaser for you……….so don’t let your guard down – keep on studying!

Greetings Students – who’s up for lunch?   We’re ready for you to come through the line and choose your favorites!

Tuesday Teaser Class!

Standard

Greetings Students!   Make sure and COMMENT then head to your desks please.

It’s time to Tease you…………..we have a GUEST TEASER photo for you today.    Some will say it’s EASY and others will say “HUH??” but all of you will think it’s an interesting photo I think.

Shall we give you a quickie primer on rules and awards you could receive??

Now I know that getting a badge isn’t really the important part of Teaser class – it’s obviously figuring out the mystery of WHERE THE PHOTO WAS TAKEN, but some of you do display your winning badges on your blogs or other social media and we say WOO HOO for YOU!     Some of you say you have the world’s largest selection of Greenies but you never know when all of a sudden like a bolt of lightning – you’ll get it right!   New badge!   WOW!     So anyway, good luck.

I twy to get it right – but sometimes my glasses get all foggy from me thinking so hard!

OK……that’s a good excuse if I’ve ever heard one!

Yes that could be a big problem on Teaser day – just concentrate!

Let’s see if our cheer team can motivate you shall we??

Today we’re riding our Harleys
It’s a nice day instead of gnarly!
We’ll cruise around looking for guys
Though our Moms said that wasn’t wise.
But those stories are for some other day
We’re supposed to be here just to say
RA RA and good luck to you
Just do the best you can do
Winning a badge is so cool
Let’s hear it for Ding Dong School!

Thanks ladies……………….I would advise you just enjoy the day on your Harleys and not worry about guys…….there are a lot of gangsta’s out there you know!

Not me!

Me neither!

Well I think we should bring in our Security Guard and take a peek at the photo don’t you?    Just study it hard and remember we need all the info……………..and tomorrow we’ll have the TELL ALL and announce who gets what!

I’m in the hot tub – would someone else SCREAM for the guard please??

SECURITY TO CLASSROOM FOR TEASER PHOTO! GET A MOVE ON!!!!

Ya gotta love Marge……….she doesn’t mince her words does she!

Here’s today’s Teaser photo Professors!

OK students…..where was this photo taken????

Now, you can head to the cafeteria with us, OR stay here to study and figure out the photo.   It’s up to you……………………Sometimes it’s better to GUESS on a full tummy!    Line up and lets go!

Off we march to the cafeteria!

Hello Students!   Time for a lunch  break so you can hit the books fully alert!   We heard the Teaser is a goodie today so good luc………cafeteria staff standing by for your order!

Monday SPARK and A Reminder

Standard

I’m back to SPARKING on Monday instead of having a Teaser preparation class.   What’s SPARKS???   You all know that Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – who started SPARKS – was hacked and has been on an extended break from blogging although her idea to spread some inspiration on Monday of every week goes on.   Many of us who participated in her SPARKS Blog Hop and found value in sharing a thought on Monday continue doing that to hopefully give each other a “Monday boost” – perhaps something to think about to inspire us in the week ahead OR help us deal with something that’s on our mind.

I think it’s always good to start your week out with an uplifting or inspiring thought…..then I “use” it as my weekly theme and keep it at the top of my mind all week long.    If you know me, you know that I talk a LOT about being positive and what that can do to your life if you can LIVE within a circle of positivity.   Not always easy I know but I really do try VERY hard to stay positive.   Here are a couple of things:    one is just a SAYING and the other a “visual” of letting go of negative and watching positivity take over.

I love the graphic with the barbed wire transforming into a dove………..and I truly DO believe that if you can’t live in POSITIVITY if you have a negative mindset.    The key is recognizing that and acknowledging it……then you can change it!

Happy Monday………..

Hugs, Pam

Teaser Class – remember tomorrow is TEASER TUESDAY and the post will be at a surprise time!  

BE READY to guess where the photo was taken.

Sunday Selfie Hop

Standard

Hello Friends!!   It’s Sunday – time to add my photo to the Selfie Blog Hop hosted by Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head.   You should join us – click the badge, fill out the linky form and add your photo to the pile.   Easy right?

Yesterday I was in the guest room enjoying a sun puddle which had just started to move my way when Mom came in with the flashy box and nabbed this photo of me.    Funny how I have two “extra” stripes down my back from the window frame.   I have no problem with stripes obviously – I have lots – so I didn’t mind these “extras” showing up in the photo.

The guest room was nice and cool – add the sun puddle and it kept me PERFECTLY COZY for a nap.   In fact, Mom looked back in on me after she uploaded my photos to her computer and I was sound asleep.

Mom decided not to jazz up the photo with Lunapic either – we’re letting it stand “AS IS” !!

Did we make a puzzle?    Well of course we did…………………….

Just Click this MINI-ME and you’ll get the puzzle!

 

Happy Sunday World!   

Hugs, Teddy
