Caturday! Yay!

BACONBEGGINGWELL OF COURSE!

What would Caturday be without a healthy dose of BACON after all?    We deserve bacon around here – just like bacon, we are FRYING here in Virginia due to ridiculously HOT temperatures so bring it on.    We’ll celebrate being hot as heck with some bacon and it will take all our cares and concerns away right?

Take daily to avoid stress in your life!

Take daily to avoid stress in your life!

After we have breakfast I think Mom and Dad and I plan to stay inside for the rest of the day………….Mom mowed the lawn yesterday because while it was in the mid-90s, today we’re gonna beat that all to heck so INSIDE is the place to be and she knew if she didn’t mow yesterday, we’d be up to our necks in grass so she did it!

Newly mowed front yard

Newly mowed front yard but still munchable!

 

Today at Cat Scouts is a BIG DAY…………….two of my best friends are getting married – what?   YES!   My friend Mauricio from The Cat On My Head and his lovely Bride to be Allie from Friends Furever will be tying the knot at 11AM at Cat Scouts and yours truly is the BEST MAN (or should that be BEST CAT??).   I don’t want to share photos AHEAD of the big event but I will share some on Sunday so you can see how FABULOUS we all looked.

What else is going on today?  Not much………………….Mom might clean up her office (hallelujah – maybe she’ll find the package of cat treats she keeps in there for ME when I visit her!)……Dad changed the oil in the lawn tractor yesterday so he hasn’t got any “projects”……….and me?   Well, I do have plans for post-wedding NAPPING!!

How about you?   WHAZZUP for you today?   Maybe we should all have a QUIET Saturday…………….just think if we all slept and we all snored there would be this huge BUZZZZZZZ heard around the world!    SAMSELFIESLEEPING

Have a great Sunday whatever you do……….stay cool if you’re HOT and stay warm if you’re COLD……………how’s that for sage advice from one wise cat???

Hugs, Sammy

Keep Cool!

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

POETRYSAMBADGE

Welcome Poetry Fans!

Today we are focusing on the letter “F” as we make our way through the alphabet each Thursday!  

“F” brings to mind many things…..food, fun, fur, FOOD (oh did I mention that already??)

butttttt in the end I decided for my “F” poem on this little ditty:

“Friends”

Friends love you always and forever

Friends will let you down – NEVER

Friends come in all kinds of sizes

Friends stick by from sunset to sunrises!

Friends are humans, and also anipals

Friends can be guys or friends can be gals

Friends live near but some live far

Friends visit us online or sometimes by car!

Friends are the BEST – I love them ALL

Friends pick us up when we have a fall

Friends are exciting or sometimes quite calm

AND my VERY BEST FRIEND is the lady I call MOM!

Ta Da!  I pulled off another one right?   And I got Mom’s name in there so I’m expecting lots of extra treats once she reads this little gem.   So – how about you?   Did you write an “F” poem today?  If you did, and you wanna show it off, you can either write it out in Comments here OR even better, put one on your blog and give us your link in comments so we can go to your bloggy and read your FABULOUS “F” EXTRAVAGANZA for THURSDAY!!!!!   GO FOR IT….trust me, if I can publish a bit of a lame poem like this one, you can too (hahahahaha).

Happy Poetic Thursday!

Ooh la la!   Monsieur Sammy, Le Poet Extraordinaire!!!!!

Welcome Back Students!

HELLO CLASS!!!!

It is I – Professor Sam!

We had a heck of a Geography Class yesterday didn’t we?    A good photo that got all of you researching, and looking things up on Google, etc. and guess what – we actually DO have a FIRST RIGHT GUESSER this week AND some others who are RIGHT GUESSERS!!!!   Shall we get down to it?   Alrighty then…………

First of all, here’s the photo you examined in class yesterday:

TEASERJULY19-2016

A mighty handsome building isn’t it?    A lot of you took a careful look at the way the building was structured, the building materials – the courtyard, etc. and made your guesses.    Some of you didn’t get beyond realizing that it had to be European…………and you were right!

This beautiful photo was sent in by my friend Kjelle Bus (Charlie Rascal) and his Mom several years ago…………….and in fact, while I didn’t use THIS shot on another Teaser, back in 2013 we did feature some of the OTHER shots she’d taken from her trip to (drumroll please……..) WARSAW, POLAND!     This is part of the Royal Palace in Warsaw.   A really beautiful structure as you can see…………and if you’d like to see other shots you can CLICK HERE.     Thank you Charlie – and while I know Charlie hasn’t blogged since March of this year, I’m hoping that he and his Mom will accept my thanks for the photo with my little “Guest Badge”………..

Thank you Kjelle Bus for the fabulous TEASER photo of 7/19/2016

Thank you Kjelle Bus for the fabulous TEASER photo of 7/19/2016

Hello Class……………welcome to this week’s Geography Lesson AND test.   We’ll see how well you’ve listened in class and/or how well you know how to google your brains out trying to find clues and get the answer too (hahaha).

SO, let me run the rules by you – just for the heck-of-it…………remember when you guess, you must guess with the complete answer.   You need to tell me WHERE the photo was taken – country/state/city or town.   You can’t say “Canada” or “Pittsburgh” (you know what I mean!)……………………

ALSO, we start off this fabulous Tuesday with the fact that whoever COMMENTS FIRST on this blog (yes this blog here!) will officially be the FIRST COMMENTER today and will get this:

TEASERBADGESUMMER16-1

Whoever is the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER of the photo gets this:

Whoever guesses RIGHT but isn’t first gets this:

SO – shall we ask Mr. Silver Briefcase to COME ON DOWN and show us the photo????  Lets do it!

Here's today's CHALLENGE!
