Hello! Did you miss my Teaser last week? Hmmmm? Well you know I hated to disappoint you but I had other things to do last Tuesday so there! I’m making up for it now though with a goodie of a Teaser this week. I’m also doing my “Blog for Peace” today but I’ll do that AFTER the Teaser. So are you ready????
As always, you can’t just say “Maine” or “France” or “Planet Earth” you need to tell me WHERE these two photos were taken OK? Got it? Good………..(yes it’s the same place for both photos!)
See? Pretty place isn’t it……………..now tell me WHERE it is!
If you’re the first lucky responder with the RIGHT answer, you get this:
If you’re RIGHT but not first you get this:
If you’re WRONG totally you can still claim a reward……….we can’t be perfect after all right???? It will be MR. GREENIE FOR YOU!!
SO – get your guesses in ASAP…………time’s a wasting……….you only have TODAY to guess because tomorrow we’ll do the TELL ALL and we’ll be TELLING ALL (of course!).
Now, here’s the PEACEFUL part of today’s blog. Today is the Blog Blast for Peace………bloggers everywhere – all over the globe – will be posting a “Peace Badge” and talking about peace in some way. I pawticipated in this last year and it was wonderful to read everybody’s thoughts AND see their creative badges. There’s a website and groups all over the place where this effort is coordinated – I visited https://www.facebook.com/BlogBlastForPeace in order to get information this year. Here’s my creation:
My Mom has talked to me about peace which is something near and dear to her heart for many reasons going way back to the 60s and 70s. My Mom was living here in Washington, DC at the time and the peace movement was everywhere…………..she and her friends weren’t radicals by any stretch but they would be on the scene of some of the marches and events and she wore the peace symbol on her clothes and the flowers in her hair and the whole nine yards. But over and above all of THAT…………she WANTED peace. As an Air Force kid – brought up in the military – she knew her Dad was very proud to serve his country and if he had to fight for it he would – and did – but what he REALLY wanted was peace. Mom grew up knowing the value of peace – knowing the joy of peace thanks to her family – knowing even before John Lennon sang it that “all we are saying, is give peace a chance”………….if we don’t have peace, we have conflict and war and we’ve all seen how scary and sad that is. So much of the world is in turmoil. We feel blessed to be HERE where even though things aren’t perfect by a long shot, they are GOOD……they are for the most part PEACEFUL…..and they are better than many places are in SO many ways.
Even though I’m a cat……….I have a voice………..and there’s one thing I love in my own household and that’s PEACE. Peace means nice long naps……peace means no noisy neighbors…….peace means LOVE. That’s something I have in abundance.
I WISH YOU PEACE….
