Independence Day Teaser Tell All!


Hi Peeps!  And to all my USA fans, from my family to yours:


Here’s how Mom decorated our house for Independence Day……

Past the flag colored windsock in the oak tree towards the front porch!

On the front porch is that shiny, flappy, noisy flag banner thing she gets out for all “patriotic occasions” around here!  After she took this shot she added a big red/white/blue bow to the porch post…..

Sam And The July Fourth Banner

I’m already wondering if it will be noisy with fireworks around here tonight or quiet because everyone has gone to the BIG fireworks in Washington, DC.  I promise I won’t complain either way though because I’m a PATRIOTIC KITTY!

Now onward to the OTHER part of this blog post which is the Tuesday Teaser Tell All!

Here’s the photo again:

I’m happy to say some of you recognized this to be BUDAPEST, HUNGARY!  YAY!

My parents were at the last stop on their cruise of the Danube River which started in Prague and ended in Budapest.  This shot was taken from the top deck of the ship as they arrived in Budapest EARLY one morning.  Once the ship docked they had breakfast on board then they went ashore and walked through the shopping district BUT it was too early for the shops to be open!  Soon there were shopkeepers putting displays out, setting up tables and chairs in the cafes, and the place got crowded with people.  My parents bought some Christmas decorations, Mom got a beautiful scarf for herself, and they got two small framed paintings of Budapest (which are on the vacation photo wall which I’ll show you one day in another blog!).   The next morning the tour company took everybody to the airport in Budapest where EVENTUALLY they departed for Prague, then London, then home to ME!  But not before they had some excitement in the airport in Budapest – – – there was a bomb scare!  EEEK!  Needless to say, someone had just left a suitcase behind accidentally in the security area but talk about confusion (plus nobody spoke English!)……

But enough of that story – wanna know who guessed right?

Concatulations to everyone who guessed right……it was NOT an easy guess either as there weren’t a lot of hints.  BRAVO – I bet you’re already looking forward to next Tuesday – right??

Happy Independence Day USA’ers and Happy Wednesday to ALL!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  1. It was fun Sam! It was fun in comments too. I don’t mind that I NEVER get it right it is just fun to play and STILL get your HUG! Happy 4th to you and your Mom and Dad! Hope your Mom got you some special stars and stripes tissue… 😀


    • Oh Miss Pix! NO I DIDN’T GET ANY SPECIAL TISSUE but you’d better believe I’m going to have a word with Mom right now about that! I know she has some tissue stashed in her studio closet – it won’t be patriotic but it will be crunchier than the stuff I have now. Thanks for reminding me. You’re a real pal!

      Happy 4th to you too!!
      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


  2. OOPS!! I can’t believe I missed your Tues. Teaser yesterday. It really didn’t matter since I didn’t have a clue where it was!!
    But concats to those who guessed right.
    And HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY celebrations to all our American friends and happy wednesday to all others!!


    • Hi Miss June! Happy 4th of July! Hope you have a super nice day – holidays are always fun aren’t they…….I just hope there aren’t any noisy fireworks around here – you know how I feel about NOISE! 😀

    • My parents LOVE river cruises – they’ve done several with Avalon Waterways in Europe. When they go on a vacation, I get to stay at “Paws A While Pet Hotel” which is only about ten minutes from my house! Some Catholic nuns run the place and they LUV ME and take very good care of me. They spoil me almost as much as my parents so it’s not too bad……I still miss my humans but I know they will come get me when they can. I’m not crazy about them leaving me behind but I figure EVERYBODY needs a break sometimes – even them! 😀 😀 😀

    Big Huggies Mollie xx


    • Hi Mollie! You missed the Teaser this week huh? Well there’s always NEXT week. This one was a toughie I agree but one of these weeks you’ll look at a photo and say “AHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!” and know just where it is. Of course since you haven’t had a chance to see the world yet, it might be tough, but I bet your human will help you figure it out! Thanks for the Independence Day wishes – we’re going to try and stay cool and enjoy it…..heading for the 100+ temperature but a chance of a shower later which might cool things down a bit.

      Big Huggies back atcha!


    • Thank you Little Miao! We thought the Sprocket Boy looked VERY patriotic in his red beret today too….we’re going to enjoy the day and try and stay cool – headed for 100+ again!

      Kitty Hugs, Sam and his Mom


    • Thanks Isobel – we’re ready for a day of BBQ excess and sunshine. Sadly the temp is headed for 100+ yet again but we’ll stay cool – cold beer helps of course. Good for you on the Teaser….that wasn’t an easy one for sure!

      Pam (and Sam)


    • Thanks Nerissa! It’s 100 degrees out but I’m staying cool on the shady front porch or inside in the A/C. I’m all for celebrating the 4th QUIETLY too – no fireworks I hope!

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


    • Oh now you guys shouldn’t say NEVER (NEVER SAY NEVER!)….because one of these days you WILL see one of my teasers and know for sure where it is. But, in the meantime, you know all you have to do to get that big Sammy hug is ask for it – – – – I’m “EASY” !!! 😀

      Kitty hugs and Happy 4th!


  4. Hey, Sammy, Good AFTERNOON!! Yes….my parents were away until just a little while ago. I guess I’m going to have to get accustomed to going to the beach house with them if I want to see them on the weekends!
    I love, love, love that photo of you with the red, white & blue banner in the background. It’s obvious that you’re a patriotic kitty!
    Hope the fireworks aren’t too loud tonight! If so, at least you have a little hidey spot.
    Love, Sundae


    • Hi Sundae… far it’s been pretty quiet around here….but the night is young! I hope it’s quiet in your neighborhood too…..I’m sure you’re glad to have your parents back home “just in case” !!

      Love, Sammy


    • Hi Satchie! You can come visit me any time you want to…..but from what I’ve seen, you have a VERY nice home too with people who love you to pieces (and a big brother who eventually will!!). We’d have lots of fun though – we could play hide and seek and I’d let you pick anything you want from my wagon full of toys!

      Kitty Hugs, Uncle Sammy


    • HAHAHA! Well, I’m sure you’d like it here Savannah – but you should wait until it’s nicer – like in the Fall with all the pretty leaves and cool temperatures and a fire in the fireplace instead of it being HOT, HUMID, and 104 degrees! 😀 😀 😀

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


  5. Hi Sammy,
    Me never would has thoughts Budapest! Can me has a Sammy hug anyway?
    Me hid UTB Sunday when they letted off fireworks here in Midway and tonight me will be back there again as our US neighbors (we lives 100 yards North of the border) has theirs!
    Me hopes yous has a Happy Day!


    • Hi Beautiful Nellie! You really have it tough being so close to fireworks on BOTH sides of the border don’t you?!?! Well, thank heavens you have a quiet spot you can hide in – like me and my basement. We didn’t have a lot of noise around here last night thankfully… rained a bit and I think that kept some of the neighbors from doing firework NOISINESS!

      As for a Sammy hug – you should know by now that you may have a Sammy hug ANY TIME you want one!!!!

      Love and kisses, Sam


    • Hi Rumpy – you sure will (get the Teaser right I mean)…..hope you and Jen had a very QUIET 4th of July – we lucked out too – it rained just in time to keep the fireworks in the neighborhood from happening. YAY!

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


    • Hi Misaki! Thanks for coming to visit – it’s nice to meet you and I’m always up for hugs and kisses. Aren’t we all? Who turns down a chance for a nice sloppy smackerooooo or a big old hug? NOT ME!

      Right back atcha – HUGS AND KISSES


    • Well Tex your human has been VERY busy – so cut her some slack….at least you eventually DID see it! I just wanted people to know that we are patriotic in this house……glad you like the banner – I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love it because it’s the flag, but I hate it because it makes a weird noise in the wind. 😀

      Kitty hugs, Sammy
