Yes, it’s that time again BUT FIRST………..before I give you your challenge – how about a bit of entertainment? Sure – why not – you’re already HERE so why not see me in an unguarded moment while I allowed Mom to use the flashy box to capture me in some Christmas Cheer Gear??? Ready?
OK – OK – no more giggling! What can I say? I’d do anything for my Mom including allow myself the indignity of wearing CLOTHING just for her…….LOVE YA MOM!
Now onward to the reason you’re here today – to take a peek at this week’s Teaser photo and give it your best shot. This is (I think) another “toughie”….yep…..I do. You know the rules…..city/town and country/state. You’ll get credit if you just get PART of the answer right but give it your best shot because you know you want that “First Right Guesser” award right???
Ta Da! Get those keyboard clicking or those buttons on the phone pushed because I’m waiting………yep – here I am – waiting for the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER…….cuz you know I will be sending you a note to tell you that you are in fact FIRST, then we can sit back and watch the other guesses coming in! Cool? Good!
This is what the First Guesser gets…………………(you already know this!!)
AND remember nobody is a LOSER here….there will be other awards as you know for winners AND almost winners!
So we had our ice event Sunday and yesterday and it wasn’t pretty. I mean it was pretty in one sense – but it was BAD on the roads. Everything shut down – including power in some places (not here though!!)……and the icy coating was on the trees almost all day. The weather guy lied as usual yesterday morning and said the sun might come out…..UH HUH…..YEAH SURE….well it did NOT come out although the temperature rose to 36 big fat degrees so some of the ice melted. Overnight of course it re-froze. Swell……ice-skating rink day two for today I suppose. We did have a bit of a casualty – well two actually. One BIG branch came crashing down just at the edge of the woods (a big oak) and crashed onto one of Mom’s shrubs. Also at the bottom of our driveway one of the super tall, skinny river birch trees bent WAY down to the driveway because it’s weighed down by the ice. It hasn’t snapped but it’s just sitting there – Dad tried to knock the iced off but NO WAY. SO, we’ll just hope that later today MAYBE we’ll get a break and the temps will rise and more ice will melt. Keep your fingers crossed – I get upset when my trees get hurt !! Here’s the yard – lotsa ice on branches……
In other news, I received my FOURTH STAR for my Blog of the Year 2013 from Purrfect Kitties YAY……..thank you so much!!! Then this morning I see
my friend Misaki gave me ANOTHER one (THANK YOU!!!!) – so that means I’m up to five stars! One more to go!!!
If you’re in the hunt for stars – please feel free to consider that you’ve added ANOTHER one to your award because
for those of you who need another one – I’m waving my Sammy Whammy wand and passing a star on to you!!
I also got another award – a BRAND NEW award just “invented” by my good friend Nerissa (Nissy) called the “Friends and Followers” Award.
What a beautiful new award Nissy – THANK YOU my friend!!
Just four things to do when accepting the Friends and Followers Award. Firstly, you need to post the award on your blog. Secondly, you need to thank the blogger who gave it to you, if you don’t already, follow them. You can follow by e-mail or feed or a reader or any other method available. That even includes just popping into their blog every day or so if they don’t have a set up for “following” them. Thirdly, you need to pass along the FRIENDS & FOLLOWERS award to a few readers whom you know already follow you.
So, here are a few of my followers that I’d like to pass this on to:
Gosh – this is yet another endless blog today………but the BIG thing is the Teaser so go back up the page and take a GOOD LOOK………if you want that “First Guesser Award” you’d better hurry!!!!
