Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Hello Teaser Fans !!!    Got those eyeballs tuned up and tuned in?   Ready to take a gander at the photo of the week?   Well, it is, as promised, something belonging to my parents “picture collection”……….BUT, it’s something different because my Mom painted it from a photo she took on one of my parents trips!   Can you guess WHERE she took the photo???????

TeaserNov19

So, again, this truly is from a photo – it looks a bit blurry in this photo for some reason but hopefully not TOOO blurry to try and figure out WHERE it was taken!   By the way, for those of you who notice these things, the signature on the painting says “Hagel”….well, that’s because it USED to be my Mom’s last name before she was a “Kimmell” !!   YES the painting is old…………YES my Mom is too.  HAHAHAHAHAHAHA  (sorry Mom)

What do you get if you are the FIRST person to guess where the photo for this painting was taken?????

AND if you guess right but aren’t the first one to guess right – you get my famous hug badge:

The "I Guessed RIGHT!" award......!

The “I Guessed RIGHT!” award……!

 

Cool huh?   Well YES of course it is………….everybody loves Tuesdays on Sammy’s blog right?

Now I want you to spend a minute taking a peek (if you haven’t already) at the fabulous cars that have been entered in the Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby Race……….this their Pinterest board – an easy place to visit to see ALL the cars in the race…………http://www.pinterest.com/catscouts/cat-scouts-cardwood-derby/   So cool aren’t they????  I’ll keep you posted on the race results……..after the 20th I’ll know what’s what!

I also want you to please send up some purrayers for my good buddy Oscar at My Three Moggies.  Oscar came home from wandering about outside with some serious injuries that necessitated a trip to the vet to get stitched up….he’s home now recovering BUT could use a few hugs and cheery thoughts so please do stop by and wish him a speedy recovery will you???   Here’s how he looked BEFORE he got in a cat fight – hopefully he’s still this handsome after his surgery!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy !

    • Well your boy is “our” boy too and that was one horribly serious fight he was in….so lucky he didn’t lose an eye or worse. He looks “rough” still but at least he’s home where all your love and hugs (and his brothers) will help him heal super fast. So you say New England huh? Like WHERE in New England????? Hmmmm????? Of course there are lighthouses all up and down both coasts of the USA too….guess you’ll find out tomorrow for the Tell All WHERE this was?!?!?! Sending hugs to all.

    • Hi Doggy and Mr. Leo! Maine? You think it’s Maine? Well my parents have been all through New England that’s for sure but I’ll have to keep you hanging on until tomorrow to find out if that’s where Mom snapped the photo that magically transformed into an oil painting!!

      Woo Hoo, Happy Tuesday, Sammy

  1. That lighthouse will no doubt speak to many in the States but it rings no bells for us, whatsoever! Lovely painting though 😀 There’s some serious competition for the derby… very brave kittens all.

  2. We have no idea where that picture was taken but your Mom did a good job painting it!!

    The Cardwood Derby was such fun. Scout Allie and Scout Raz can’t wait to see the results – Go Wildcats!!! We hope we pinned, posted and did everything we should.

    We’re purring and praying for Oscar.

    • We’re totally excited about the race too!! I think our glorious DenMaster has been posting all the cars to all the various boards/sites, etc. because we didn’t upload ours but it’s THERE! Anyway, now we just have to WAIT for the race results although I’m not even sure how that’s going to be done…..sigh….wait wait wait. I’m pretty good at that most of the time!!! Glad you liked my Mom’s painting. She’s got a studio full of them and particularly loves painting lighthouses. Poor Oscar…..there’s a video on his blog this morning showing his wound after the fight – just awful! He was LUCKY.

    • Hi Easy! Good Morning! I can’t believe you weren’t FIRST to guess this morning (since you even have your pee-stop schedule based on Teaser time!!!!) – BUTTTTTTT, I’ll have to make you wait until tomorrow to find out if it’s Acadia National Park in Maine……Poor Oscar really got mangled in that fight didn’t he? Scary stuff….we’re hoping he’s better very soon – it’s one nasty looking wound.

I’m excited if doggy will post the bike-race video again , in case he is the winner. care to place a bet? will he or will he not?

        • Hi Easy! I was SURE you’d be first in line when the Teaser went live this morning……! As for Doggy – he’s truly “Mr. Unpredictable” but I think it would be way cool if he’d had Miss Peach take a video of him racewalking around that track for this race in Lisbon – I’d love to see that!!

    • Oh Cupcake you are SO very smart to spot some Christmas trees in that painting……maybe it is where Santa Paws lives up at the North Pole!!! BUTTTTTTT I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out. Speaking of Santa, I bet he’s up to his beard in making toys for good boys and girls – human and otherwise – did you make your list and check it twice yet????????

    • Hi Miss Melanie! Thanks for guessing on my Tuesday Teaser!! I don’t ever tell anybody if they guessed right until “Teaser Tell All” which is Wednesday BUT thanks for taking a peek and making a guess!!!! BRAVO! We live in Virginia and love the East Coast. I’ve never lived anywhere else – I was born out in the country somewhere and my parents adopted me from the local shelter as a tiny kitten 13 years ago. I’d been found under an old abandoned house all by my tiny self. I’d only been in the shelter a couple of days and people had seen me but didn’t want me because I had extra toes on my front paws and they thought something was wrong with me! My Mom and Dad saw me and KNEW I was just extra special so they snapped me up right away and I’ve been happy ever since. Have a super day and thanks for all the funny jokes – that started our Tuesday off with a BIG SMILE!

  6. We’re going to guess Connecticut, Sammy, but Mommy can’t remember exactly which lighthouse she’s thinking of. (Although I say those trees don’t look like Connecticut….)
    It’s a beautiful painting; your mommy is so talented (and sweet).
    Love the kitty jokes that Melanie shared!

    • Well my Mom says THANKS A BUNCH for the compliments on her painting. It’s actually a rather old painting – probably about 25 years old in fact…..she doesn’t paint much anymore – who has time for painting when you’re helping your Cat Scout with his Scouting duties and his full-time blog???????

  7. Snorts – It looks like Maine but I’m no judge in these things. Bashful is the traveler in our family for sure. But something in your post really put my antennas up a bit. You’re mom’s married name is Kimmell which intrigues me because we have Kimmell’s in our family. And you know my mom’s family is from Maine… makes you wonder my friend. XOXO – Bacon

  9. That’s a very nice painting your mums done, such a talent that gal is.

    Now I’m going to take a hint and say Gander, Newfoundland Canada 😀 because they might well have old lighthouses there and our flag is red and white like that little house 😀

    So am I a winner, eh? xoK

  10. Hmmm… I see a lighthouse and I see a lot of spruce trees and then that little house. Could easily be Nova Scotia but I don’t think your mum has ever been to Nova Scotia so I’m gonna say Maine. That’s my guess… MAINE… and I’m stickin’ to it.

  12. That’s a nice painting, Sammy, but we don’t know where it is….somebuddy else guessed Maine and that’s what it kinda looks like to us, though we’ve never been there.

    We’re excited about the results of the Derby too! Can’t wait!

    • Maine is right CK – you get the Sammy Hug badge for guessing that too! My Mom has lotsa paintings of lighthouses she’s done…one day I’ll show all of them….maybe….as for the black cat Oscar – Spitty’s furs are WAY WAY more long than Oscar’s – and I think after the fight Oscar got in, he’s lucky to have ANY furs on him at all!
