Teaser Tuesday

Standard

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?

SamXmas2013-1

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???

TeaserDec11

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!!)

The Much Coveted "First Right Guesser" Award

The Much Coveted “First Right Guesser” Award

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!!! 

Blog of the Year Award 5 star jpeg

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.

FRIENDS & 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:

Sushi

Easy Weimaraner

Fozzie.M

Clowie

Doggy’s Style

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!!!!

HAPPY TEASER/FREEZER DAY!   Sammy

  1. Congratulations to your award and the next star, Sammy! Many thanks for nominating me :o) Please stay warm and cosy and maybe you can buy a coat for your trees? I think it could be Birmingham, UK . They have a red house there, hope it isn’t Holland :o)

    • Hi Easy my buddy – my pal! We’re getting more snow this morning – maybe 2-5 inches of the stuff! EEEK! I’ll be staying inside again believe me…..buying a coat for the trees is a swell idea – I’ll have my Mom surf the internet today to see if we can find something suitable (and cheap). So you think today’s Teaser is in the UK??? Well, there are red houses (yes that kind of red house) all over the world (although Holland has more than anybody else I think…haha) BUTTTTTT you’ll have to come visit me tomorrow to see if you’re right about Birmingham. Meanwhile, I hope you have a pawsome day. We got your Christmas card yesterday!! Mom is late sending MINE out! SHAME SHAME SHAME on her!

  3. Most of the US is under the white blanket, I’m glad I don’t have to shovel snow.
    Here’s been a bit colder than usual but nothing bad.
    Thanks for the award, and congrats on the new star, 1 more and you’ll be done.
    I wonder if I could create an award to remove stars. I’ll look into it.

    • It’s been snowing here for the last hour….another 5 inches or so expected….YUCK…..we don’t shovel the stuff either – Dad’s got a snow machine BUTTTTT it’s in the basement right now doing nobody any good.

  7. No idea BUT that stone wall is impressive and beautiful! You look very cute.. um.. handsome in your Santa hat and scarf. Congrats on the award and stars! I am getting the worries just looking at that ice on your trees and hearing that 5 more inches of snow is going to be weighing them down. We have freezing rain forecast for Friday.. 😦

    • Hi Miss Pix! Did you go shopping yesterday??? Mom wrapped pressies all morning – stuff she’d already got for my Pop and me and some friends….Right now it doesn’t look like we’ll get that 5 inches of more snow – MAYBE two at the very most. It’s barely falling now – I’m gonna post some updated pix on tomorrow’s bloggy. Stay tuned. Freezing rain is the DANGEROUS stuff for the trees as you know – that tree at the bottom of our driveway (river birch) is still bend over double but hasn’t snapped….thank heavens.

    3. We never get this guessing thing right. Mom thinks that is here in the good old U.S., but we are not guessing until we investigate a little more.
    4. Your yard looks like a winter wonderland. Hope your trees don’t have any more damage and your power stays on.

    Stay warm…Mau’s toasting at Campfire.

Still we have some big limbs down which my Dad will have to whack up with the saw and drag down into the woods and I always HATE that trees get so much damage from ice. Not much we can do about it though sadly.
