We Love Surprises!

Standard

Apparently LOTS of you do because my “surprise or no surprise” poll results yesterday about the Teaser tell it like it is……………..you like to be surprised!  So for now, I’ll continue with random times for my Teaser posting until you scream NO MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORE PULEEEEEEEEEEZE (or something similar)!

TEASERGLOBE

Well tomorrow my Troop on Cat Scouts is hosting a Sock Hop.  No it’s not where you hop around with socks on – it’s a “thing of the fifties” when girls in poodle skirts and bobby socks would dance with guys in jeans and leather jackets in a high school gymnasium and do the Twist, Swing, Jitterbug, Stroll and a number of other chiropractic nightmare moves that should have landed some of them in a hospital.  Only instead of HUMANS doing this craziness, it’s CATS.  That’s right.  Should be a hoot right?  Here’s a little preview of what we’ll be seeing on Cat Scouts at the Hop:   (click to bigify)

 

I may share some of the “after” photos with you on Saturday (after I wake up from sleeping in of course).   Mom won’t let me stay out too late – yes I’m 14 years old which is a Senior Citizen in cat years but I’m still living under her roof and while I do – her rules RULE!

Yesterday was my buddy Bailey’s  of Bailey Boat Cat birthday.  Imagine living the life aboard a beautiful sailboat?  Well that’s my friend Bailey for you.  AND on top of that he’s written a book all about being a boat cat and life at sea……my Mom is going to do a book review tomorrow of his book – but I can tell you right now – it’s CATABULOUS!!!!!

BAILEYBIRTHDAY BAILEYCOVER

That’s about it for news from my world…………..although I’m sure before the day is over many exciting things will happen to me and cause me to have to share them with you tomorrow.   That’s what a blog is all about right?  “STUFF HAPPENS”?????   Well heaven knows it happens in my life…….that’s for sure!

Happy Thursday Peeps and Peepers!

Hugs, Sammy

    • Hi Fozziemum……..we will have a great time that’s for sure……unlike many of your neighbors down under with those horrible fires you have to worry about every winter. Stay safe – we know you are prepared and will be careful!

  3. Have fun at the sock hop, S. Don’t dance yourself into the chiropractor! Mom read me Bailey’s book, and we LOVED it. We also put ourselves on his map of the world to show that his book has touched people far and wide.

    Love and licks,

    • Hi Cupcake! Wasn’t Bailey’s book fun??? Mom read it to be too and all I can think about is how much fun it would be to sail the seven seas (are there REALLY seven?? wow….all that potential bath water!!!!).

    • The Sock Hop is going to be amazing……….Mom and I just Pizapped everyone who has entered so far into the gym at once….it’s an amazing shot……I’ll send it to you AFTER the Hop for your files since you can’t capture it from Scouts!!

    • Well it’s weird because somehow the photos I had in Sam’s “main blog post” today got “detached” and sent out separately – not sure how or why!!!!!! Glad you like them though!

    • Hi Sparkle! Our review will be tomorrow……….ran it by Louise and she approved it…….you guys did a WONDERFUL job with the review………it’s just the BEST little book EVER. I know she’s planning on writing more – maybe a young adult novel next…..I think it will be a winner but this book will always have a special place in our library!!!

    • Actually there will be several “singles” at the dance – Winter, Austin, and Obi and there may be more so no worries!!! Also, make sure you photoshop yourself into the action – I guarantee you’ll have some fun even if you don’t have a date – in fact you might have MORE fun! 😉

      • Sammy, I don’t know how to photoshop so I won’t be in any of the photos. 😦 And were we supposed to submit photos for you for this? I didn’t read anything about that. I feel so out of the loop on everything with Scouts.

        • Hi Wally………..I’ve been posting like mad at Campfire and Wildcats all about the Hop and posting photos for everyone to put themselves into if they wanted to – that’s all optional fun stuff. I’m not a photoshop expert either but I use Pizap.com and it so easy even an old guy like me can do it. Give it a try sometime. Meanwhile, there will be lots of photos posted and you’ll be in the action and hopefully having fun so don’t worry if you can’t photoshop. A lot of people don’t have programs for that – we don’t either – Pizap is online and you aren’t downloading or buying anything – just playing with your own photos. Anyway, I’ll make sure and keep you in the action. If you email me with any other concerns you have about Scouts activities I’ll try to help – you know I will….I want you to have fun. That’s what Scouts is all about anyway!!

          Hugs, Sammy
