Sparks on Monday….

27

Time for Monday SPARKS! 

Our friend Miss Annie at McGuffy’s Reader started a new post idea for Mondays – last week was the FIRST of many “SPARK” posts to come.    We participated then, and we’re participating today too with another bit of “SPARKLE” for the world……………..the idea is to post something that lights up the day, the life, the thoughts, the energy for those who read it.   Adding a little spark to the way we think………….if enough of us sparkle – who knows just how LIGHT the world will get!     If you’d like to join in – just click on the SPARKS poster above and go to McGuffy’s to add your sparkling thought to the Hop.

Here’s our SPARK for today and thanks Miss Annie for hosting this GREAT idea!

Love and SPARKS from me and Mom!  

Love, Teddy

Moaning on Monday

25

Mom – Dad – How Could You?

Nobody here to turn on the printer so I can watch it???

Nobody to take me outside for yard cruising???

No sink drinks????

No Mommy hugs???

No summersaults????

I can’t begrudge them a few days off but gosh – it’s just not the same around here!    Oh and Mom – that photo of you and me with the summersaults?   We might mention to people that was taken in February and it’s now October and I weigh 17 lbs. now which I did NOT weigh in this photo!!!  I weighed 8 lbs.   I’m gonna be a GIANT KITTY when I finish growing up.    I won’t even be TWO until March, 2018!   

Sorry we aren’t doing a PRE-TEASE Monday post or a Teaser tomorrow but that’s the breaks.   Unlike my Angel brother Sammy, I do NOT have THUMBS so can’t use the keyboard.   DARN!

POOEY!

I’ll be back tomorrow though.   You can count on that!   We are FINALLY getting some signs of Fall here…………..you can count on that too!!!

Sunday Selfie

52

Sunday Selfie Time!

YAY!  It’s Sunday!  Time to show ourselves off!   Every weekend we start our Sunday morning’s entertainment by visiting our fellow Blog Hoppers who are doing selfies.   This is a GREAT Blog Hop hosted by our buddies and pals the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head.    If you’d like to play along and show your selfie, just click their badge above and use the LINKY tool – fill it out – and you’re hopping along with us.

Mom and I were out for a yard cruise day before yesterday and she snapped some shots of yours truly in my harness…………looking around the front yard for deer tracks, rabbit poop, bugs, WHATEVER has been “left” there for me to find.   I didn’t find anything but I heard a squirrel and that’s why I look READY TO RUN in this photo!    Mom “dolled me up” with Lunapic again – used an effect called “REDBLUSH” – perfect for a ginger isn’t it?

Here’s the “original”

Sure is a cool effect……….did some strange things to the grass (which needs to be cut) and my furs…………..and kinda neat how it highlighted my leash too.   Anyway, that’s it for this Sunday’s ARTWORK-SELFIE!

A reminder for everyone that we are NOT having a Teaser this week so that means no Pre-Tease Monday.   My Mom and Dad are taking a little break – we will have blogs this week but no Teaser since Mom has to be at the computer to “manage” that one on Tuesdays!!!!    I know you’ll miss the Teaser but we’ll be back the following week with our usual SCHEDULE of PROGRAMMING!  HAHAHAHAHA

Love, Teddy

 

 

Baconiam Snapshots

42

Greetings Fellow Baconians!

I thought today I’d share some photos from the official Baconian Photo Album………………..the countryside of course is covered in bacon – trees, rocks, houses, it’s all bacon………but I do travel through from time to time to stop and visit my loyal subjects.    Here are just a few of the photos the official Baconian Photographer has snapped!

It seems that everyone is happy in Baconia.   That makes ME happy.    A big part of that happiness is obviously EATING bacon so shall we?   Oh LET’S!!!!!!

This should satisfy our bacon habit for today don’t you think??????

You have outdone yourself Royal Chef……..take the rest of the day off!

DEFINITELY!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Bacon Day My Friends!

See you next Saturday for more Baconian fun!

Friendly Fill-Ins Friday

45

Here We Go!   Filling In Fun!

Know what ELSE it is???????

It’s Friday and that means filling in sentences on a fun Hop co-hosted by 15andMeowing AND McGuffy’s Reader!    Every week we get four sentences with blanks and our job is to fill those blanks in.   The result is that we learn a whole bunch of stuff about each other and that is FUN.    We thank our co-hosts for giving us this opportunity every week.    If you want to join in, just click the badge above and go to McGuffy’s where you can enter your blog info and VOILA – you’re IN!

Here are this week’s sentences and my Mom has filled them in using PURPLE!

1. Keep calm and just concentrate on doing things you WANT to do – things that please YOU.
2. Politics disappoints me.
3. June is my middle name – in honor of my Dad’s sister June.

4. In retrospect, I was not mature enough to get married “first time around” .
VOILA!    Thanks Mom………….I won’t ask you about that #4 thing because the only Daddy I know is the one I have NOW and if “first time around” isn’t around any longer I’m SURE there’s a good reason for that.    I LOVE your “second time around” !!!    Tee Hee
We are having rain AGAIN today so I’ll probably mostly stay inside and snoopervise the Friday housecleaning.   If things get too noisy I can always go out to my favorite spot – the garage……..I know I’m SAFE out there – no noisy cleaning out there to disturb my sleep!
See you all tomorrow in BACONIA!

Love, Teddy

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

56

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

It’s time for double post Thursday.   First up is our Thankful post for Brian’s Blog Hop.   If you’d like to share what you are thankful for this week just give a little click on the badge above and you’ll go to his blog where you can use the LINKY tool to join up!     I do have a lot of  thankfuls for this week but allow me to FIRST thank Brian for hosting this Hop.   It’s a good chance for all of us to spread our wings and FLY about what we are thankful for.    One of my thankfuls this week is that I’m thankful I remembered to join the new Hop that McGuffy’s Reader is doing called “SPARKS” – you post something that gets everyone feeling positive or happy or inspired and it can be a meme a special quote or verse or ANYTHING you feel will “light up someone’s day”.    You can check that one out at McGuffy’s Reader and the posts are on every Monday.    We did our first one this past Monday.

Secondly I am thankful that my white cell count is in NORMAL range…….not HIGH NORMAL like last check but NORMAL NORMAL – I’m glad because my Mom and Dad and my vet were a little concerned because both of my prior blood panels were OFF for white cell………Mom says I will never be NORMAL (hahahahaha thanks Mom) in many categories (like my weight) but at least my white count is NORMAL!

Now for part two of today’s blog and it’s where  my dear Angel brother transmits his weekly poetry challenge DOWN to me (which he did last night) so I can share it with you.    We are working our way through the alphabet and have made it to the letter “R”.    We are not far from the end of the Alphabet Challenge…….Here’s what I received from Angel Sammy courtesy of his Rainbow Bridge Wi-Fi connection!!

♥♥♥♥

Hello Friends!   Hugs from the Rainbow Bridge

As you all know we are up to the letter “R” and I gave you some possible words to use if you want to for YOUR “R” poem…………just some hints but you are supposed to write your own poem about ANYTHING that starts with the letter “R”!    I hope we have some new folks joining in the poetic fun this week – several people said they “might try” to write a poem…………..I say ANYONE can write a poem – just let your thoughts flow – poems don’t even always rhyme remember – they just EXPRESS!   

Here are the words I gave you as “prompts” if you needed them:

(1) Rain (2) Run (3) Ruin (4) Rabbit

I’m using one of my own prompts this week………!!

“Rain”

By Sammy Kimmell, October 12, 2017

There are stories about rain that some children are told

Like at the end of rainbows there might be a pot of gold

Some think rain is really angels tears

They cry with worry watching us down here!

Rain brings renewal, lets buds open wide

Flowers will bloom, the gardeners great pride!

Some get depressed when the rain comes down

Nothing will cheer them, not even a clown.

But rainy days can sometimes be the very best

At reminding all of us just how much we are blessed

Rainy days bring us together because we don’t go outside

We can play a game, write some letters, read through a travel guide!

We can talk over tea in a quiet room at home

No need to go out in the rain – no need to roam.

Rainy day indoor picnics are REALLY the best!

No bugs to bother you – no sign of a pest!

So remember that RAIN is a sign from above –

To just SLOW ourselves down and feel all the love……………..

 

So that’s my thought of the day everybody.    Rain is not a BAD thing………..it may dampen your plans but it can’t dampen your spirit if you don’t let it.   I miss my Mom and Dad’s “indoor picnics” in front of the fireplace.    Mom would spread a blanket on the floor with the fire going in the winter and I’d make myself at home in one corner and Mom would put piles of pillows around and she and Dad would have a “picnic” for dinner right there.   Usually sandwiches and stuff like she’d bring along in the picnic hamper IF they were outside in a park.    Sigh………………..

Here are some words for next week’s letter of the alphabet, the letter “S”…………..you may use one of these or one of your own – whatever you want to do but please give writing a poem a try.   Short, long, rhyming or not – ANY poetic form will do……….just let your inner thoughts fly free (like I do when I practice my flying at the Bridge!).

(1) Sunny (2) Shrimp (3) Shoe (4) Snuggle

I hope to see you NEXT Thursday sharing your own poem – this week you can put your poem in our blog comments OR just give us the link to YOUR poem in our comments – either way we can see your work and enjoy the fun!     Until then…………remember:

I give you LOVE and HUGS, Angel Sammy

♥♥♥♥

Thanks Angel Sammy!    I liked that one…….and today is a rainy day too – I heard Mom tell Dad that they would have an indoor picnic so maybe I can see what Angel Sammy is talking about tonight at dinner!!!!

See you all tomorrow for Friendly Friday Fill-Ins with McGuffy’s Reader and 15andMeowing!

Big Teddy Bear Hugs to you!

Gather Round Class!

Time for class and this is the one where we hand out AWARDS in the form of adorable TEASER BADGES – you know you want one right?   Well we DO have some winners this week and I’ll spill those beans in a minute.   BUT FIRST……………….

Scuze me Prof but someone told me you spilled something in here?   Beans?

No Miss – that was just a figure of speech – there were no spills in here!  Honest!

Whew!  I guess I need to be careful what I say – maybe our classroom is bugged?!?!?!    EEEK!

Yesterday we had a THREE WAY TIE for FIRST COMMENTER……………….we often have more than one in the first sixty seconds but we know how TIRED Suzie gets having to include FIVE First Commenters in her cheer so she should be fairly pleased to only have THREE this week.

Her punishment for me I would DREAD!

Thank you Suzie…………you never let us down………you finish off Teaser week with a flourish every time!    Hope you all enjoyed this week’s TEASER time.
