Teaser Tell All and Go Fishing!


Hi Everybody!  I really thought I had you all stumped yesterday with my Teaser photo.  Some of you had OTHER ideas though and sure enough, two of you guessed it EXACTLY…..and several of you had the right country where the photo had been taken.

A little background…..my parents were on the SECOND stop of their honeymoon trip way back in 1990.  They had Eurail passes that would take them across Europe and while they started out in Rome, Italy, their SECOND stop was in Venice!

This was one of several photos my parents took while cruising through the “Piazza San Marco” – or, as my Dad called it after they’d been there about an hour – “Pigeon Poop Piazza” because of the zillions of pigeons flying around there.  They sold bags of seed for the pigeons so you could feed them and have your photo taken but do we have to tell you how many people who DID that wound up covered in pigeon poop???? Needless to say my parents didn’t go that route, but they did stop here in the piazza for an espresso and to people watch. 

Two of you got the EXACT location where the photo was taken (woo hoo) and three of you guessed the right country (also woo hoo).

Concatulations to:

Zena of The Princess Tails  (guessed EXACTLY!)

Easy of Easy Weimaraner  (also guessed EXACTLY!)

Mollie of Mollie’s Dog Treats

The Guinea Pig Boys of Hutch A Good Life

Cody of CAT CHAT

Here’s your winning hug everybody!

…….Big Sammy Hug !…….

Now, on to the “fishing” part of my blog!  My Mom’s very super good friend Trish Terrell, the author, just started a second blog all about her fabulous hobby of raising angelfish!  That’s right – they are beautiful fish and she’s got lots of aquariums in her house where she raises them from eggs to babies to big fish.  She also has four doggies who are all rescues and I think she’ll mention them in coming blogs but mainly this blog is about her fish.   Miss Trish writes really good thriller/suspense novels and my Mom (and thousands of other fans) have read them and love them all – but in one of her more recent books called “Vicki’s Key”, the main character who is a CIA agent, is involved in raising angelfish. 

They really are beautiful fish too – I didn’t know what one looked like until Miss Trish started this hobby and I have to admit, I wouldn’t mind having a big tank full of these babies all to myself (I hear you giggling – you think I’d be dipping my paw in there to grab one and eat it don’t you?!?!?!)…….WHO ME????????????  Well, anyway, I’m giving you the link to Miss Trish’s blog about her fishies just in case you’d like to take a peek and hear about them.  The original group of fish were named after Fleetwood Mac (which happens to be one of my Mom’s all-time fave groups) – and the names Miss Trish gave her fish are kinda cute…….

Click HERE to visit Vicki’s Angelfish and check it out – and if you’re a reader of suspense thrillers – you might want to visit Miss Trish’s website too……the link is on her blog.

Sammy looking soft and sweet (asleep!)

How could this sweet innocent kitty PAWSIBLY be interested in grabbing a fish out of a tank! Shame on you for thinking such thoughts!…….Tee Hee…….

Happy Wednesday Peeps!!!  See you here again tomorrow….

Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀 😀 😀

    • Hi Mollie! You sure did get it right – atta girl! Looks like you are throwing Alfie quite a nice birthday party – you’re a good “sister”…..as for the fishies – they do look VERY tempting – especially that great big ten inch big angelfish….(oops….sorry about that Miss Trish!).

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


  1. Thank you for that hug – I needed that 🙂
    The Producer has sat there too and she says they will never forget it. Not because of the pigeons but because they foolishly ordered afternoon tea.
    They spent the rest of the holiday economising because of it!!! Ha! Serves them right for not taking me – even though I wasn’t born.


    • Venice is NOT a “cheap” place that’s for sure…..and indeed I think my Mom mentioned something about how she and my Dad felt they just HAD to sit down there and have an expresso to soak up the atmosphere – but the biggest “soaking” was sucking the money out of my Dad’s wallet!! TEEEEEE HEEEEEE

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


    • Doggy, you’re quite a character dude…..hey – was just peeking at your blog and you look mighty swell with your backpack – nice of you to be your Daddy’s pack horse when you two are on a run!

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


        • Uh huh……well, you DO get a BIG SAMMY HUG because you came by and guessed – twice – but the only guesses I saw were Barcelona, Germany and Austria Sir Doggy…nothing said about Venice! Of course my Assistant may have missed something or maybe forgot something, but if she did, we can chalk it up to her old age being SUPER busy!

          Kitty Hugs, Sam


    • Wish I could see you boys doing a victory dance – I have a feeling it would be mighty cute! All that wiggling and squiggling and happy faces all around. Concatulations on getting the Teaser….. 😉

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


    • Hi Cupcake….sorry about that but maybe next time it will be your favorite field. You never know – my Mom and her camera go to some mighty interesting places!

      Happy Wednesday ANYWAY!
      Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀


    • Hi Sundae! I hope you like looking at Miss Trish’s angelfishies….they look yummy pretty! Hope you have a sunnier day than WE have. 😦 It’s cloudy here so no sun puddles for naps.

      Love, Sammy


  2. Hi there, Sammy and Pam!
    Thanks so much for the shout-out on Vicki’s Angelfish! We’ve already had a few pop in and leave a comment. We never knew how exciting fish could be until we started raising angelfish.
    I bet Sammy would have a lot of fun chasing them around the tank with his paw!!
    And I never guess the Teaser. I guess I need to get out of the fish tank and go exploring more!!
    Love and kisses from Trish, Mattie the foxhound, Simone the collie, Eddie & Lucy the JR’s and tons of angels!


    • Hi Miss Trish!! I’m glad some of my buddies have stopped by to see your angelfish blog. I’m sure my CAT friends will be interested (tee hee) – but who knows – guinea pigs, dogs, and other friends might enjoy hearing about them too! Kitty hugs to all the doggies – you’ll have to tell everyone about THEM one day too!

      Love, Sammy


  3. Concatulations to all the winners of that fantastic big ole Sammy Hug. Looks like an interesting place….I’d like to have a cup of coffee there if they’d get rid of the pigeons!!


    • Hi D…..it was a perfect September morning in the Plaza and the espresso was delicious (but EXTREMELY expensive!) – but what the heck – we were on our honeymoon!

      Have a super day………Sammy sends hugs!


  4. I got the teaser wrong… AGAIN! I’m so not good that this, Sammy, but I’ll keep on trying. One of these days… I mean, I can’t be THAT unlucky, right? Odds are that one day, I’ll get that hug. purrs

    Oh, and you’ve gotta come visit my blog today. I officially accepted the two beautiful and fantastic awards you gave me. ‘Bout time, huh? I know…. That’s why I called my post, “I’m late… I’m late…” Somehow seemed fitting. more purrs


    • Hi Nissy! You ARE gonna guess right on the Teaser one day I’m PAWSITIVE you will! As for the awards – I’m glad you like them my friend – they are well deserved AND like I told you….never feel “rushed” to do the acceptance stuff – it’s VERY time-consuming I know!! 😀 😀 😀

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy
