Teaser Tell All



OK……..I’ve just gotta tell you all not to count on what Mom calls her photos when she downloads them for a clue because sometimes it’s not telling where the photo was taken but where the whole trip was heading…….why am I telling you that??  Well, yesterday’s Teaser was a perfect example…………..here’s the photo again:



Mom and I actually had forgotten that if you right click “Properties” you will see the file name for the photo (we made a note to remember to remove that in the future but then again maybe we won’t!).  That would NOT have worked yesterday for you because know where that photo was taken??????

Basel, Switzerland – where Mom and Dad boarded the cruise ship for their eight day Rhine River Cruise !!!!

Avalon Waterways transported all the passengers who were taking this particular cruise from their hotel meeting place in Zurich, Switzerland down to the dockside area in Basel where they began the incredible journey along the Rhine.  Mom has shared some of those photos in previous Teasers but we’d never shown the starting point which was NOT in Germany. 

I guess we kinda fooled you on that one huh?   And once someone says they figured it out and HOW they did, some of you jump on the old bandwagon with them.  Still, isn’t it fun to try and figure it all out?  I’m sure the skyline has changed since this cruise though – my parents did the Rhine River Cruise in 2000 – I bet there are a lot more high rise buildings along the waterfront in Basel by now – but hopefully NOT because my Mom said it was a beautiful town.  High rises kind of ruin that just a bit don’t you think? 

Anyway, NOBODY guessed Basel, Switzerland so all of you get this for this week’s Teaser:



Now remember, next week, don’t rely on whatever my Mom MAY have titled the photo – you just never know if she’s being sneaky, made a mistake, or named it after some particular trip……makes it that much more interesting doesn’t it?????

  1. Woo hoo Sammy I am not alone in being way off target..what a lovely trip that must have been….did you get the luxury cabin by yourself Sammy or were you peering out of a porthole with a longing look hehehe 🙂
    Have a great day Sammy bighugs Fozziemum and I shall proudly display the ‘biggest loser’/’booby prize’ hehehehe


    • HA! I had to go to “camp” here in Virginia while my parents lounged about on that great big cruise ship lovin’ life! But they missed me and brought me prezzies from their adventure so it wasn’t ALL bad!

      I saw your booby badge (haha) on your bloggy this morning – WOO WOO WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
      Kitty Hugs, Sam

        Big hugs Fozziemum xx


  2. Well, that really WAS a teaser, wasn’t it, Sammy? (We didn’t even get to visit you at all yesterday, because my pawrents and their out-of-town company were gone ALL day to see those silly horses at the beach.)
    Love, Sundae


    • Hi Sundae……I know your Mom has been busy with company and I’m guessing you’ve had fun showing some of your tricks to them but I also bet you’ll be happy when you have your house back! Stay nice and cool – this weather is purrrrfect for staying inside!

      Love, Sam


  3. I’m glad you love me anyway! I thought it’s Austria, because Avalon has their ships there too and I was wrongwith the red/white flag :o) I’m so excited about next week – think I have to buy more catalogs :o)


    • Everybody’s going to want to know where you get those catalogs Easy – Annie at Animal Couriers is looking for your trash bin book on Amazon – I think you could probably write your OWN “Easy’s Guide To Tuesday Teasers” and sell it and become the bazillionaire we all know you could be! Yep – It could have different chapters for “trash bins”, “unique clothing”, “flags”, “signs”……I know everyone who’s addicted to Tuesday Teasers would buy a copy that’s for sure………. 😉

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


      • Great idea – but I think I should work one the “clothing chapter”, because bavaria isn’t in scotland ( or is it? no? but nearby lol) and I should think about, that not only austria has a red/white flag LOL


        • Well Easy, I think in the heat of the moment things might be confusing sometimes – you’re too young for it to be blamed on old age (which is MY excuse!) so perhaps you were just so excited over the kilt and flag that you forgot you had other options to consider! Either that or your reference material is out of date! 😉

          Kitty hugs, Sammy


    • Well guys, I’ve got to resort to my OWN kind of cheating for the Teaser since you’re all getting good at figuring out where the photos come from my looking at the “Properties” of the photos!! Sneaky devils!!

      Happy Wednesday – stay cool boys…..
      Hugs, Sam


    • Hi Austin! Mom’s rather chuffed with her win/win….apparently Avalon uses Basel as their “base” for the Rhine cruises…..The chances of me being able to fool EVERYBODY EVER AGAIN are slim to none though!!

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


  4. sammy…dood…..yea…we like new it all de long…we just dinna wanna sound like we had eaten two much bacon in one settin N dinna have room for ham samiches ore toona !! due ewe noe how mannee kinds oh trout R in that river !!!


    • Hi Ranger! Yep – lotsa people tried to cheat with the photo label but it’s because Mom took that photo along with a bunch of others when they went on the Rhine River Cruise and so she called them all “Germany1,2,3, etc.” and it fooled EVERYONE!!! WOO HOO!!! That was fun.

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


  5. Sammy, you and Mom Pam really are sneaky. Proves there are a lot of lemmings out there. Our mom knows nothing about right clicking on properties, so couldn’t even guess wrong. Keep up the good work and stump the crowd some more. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


    • Hi Gang!! Are you excited about your PARTY to celebrate your blogaversary coming up? I bet you are……..and yes my Mom is EXTREMELY sneaky but so am I so we make for a dangerous team when it comes to Tuesday Teasers. Tee Hee. Who knows WHAT next week’s photo will SAY it is and where it REALLY is……

      Happy Wednesday………Kitty Hugs, Sammy


  6. Sammy, me is so furry happy that mes did not even hazzard a guess! Mes had already posted that mes did nots has a clue!


    • Hi Nellie! Well, as you can tell from all the WRONG guesses, everyone who’s been following the leader got fooled this week so now everyone is “on call” in the future and knows NOT to trust what they might SEE on the computer info containing photo file names!! HA HA HA HA I’m one sneaky little devil aren’t I????

      Kitty Hugs and Kisses, Sammy


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
