Tuesday Teaser & Veterans Day

Happy Tuesday!!!    Well today’s Teaser is one that I’m SURE somebody will guess right – maybe more than one somebody in fact.   I didn’t want to make it SUPER DUPER easy but I also decided not to make it SUPER DUPER tough either!

So without further fanfare, I present today’s Teaser!

TEASERNOV11

WHERE IN THE WORLD IS THIS???   What are we seeing in this photo and WHERE is it located?   If you’re the first to give me the right answer, you will be the lucky recipient of an award that NOBODY has won for several weeks – you know you wanna be first so go for it and get this!

For the FIRST to guess right!

For the FIRST to guess right!

If you are right but not first – you’re STILL a winner!

Right but not FIRST!

Right but not FIRST!

And of course there’s always Mr. Greenie if you’re just plain WRONG or Clueless!

TEASERNEWWRONG

GOOD LUCK PEEPS!!!!

What else do I have to say today?????????

Today is Veterans Day here in the US of A.

VETERANSDAY

When Mom and I think about the day and honoring those who have served or are serving their country, first at the top of our minds is my Granddad – Mom’s Pop.   He was a Colonel in the Air Force and was in the Air Force until he retired.  He loved his work so much he went back to the same office after he retired from the military and continued to do work until his health made him FINALLY get some rest and enjoy the rest of his life.   He was VERY patriotic and that’s where my Mom gets her love of country from.   He died in 1992 just two years after he walked Mom down the aisle when she married my Dad.

I never knew him since I was born in 2000, well after he went to the Human Bridge but one day I hope Mom, me and Granddad can sit in a flower-filled field by a steam and have a picnic in the sun together on the other side of the Bridge……………..I would like that very much.   Maybe he’ll tell me tall tales of his long military career and he can be MY hero like he’s my Mom’s hero.

Mom has the flag that was on her Dad's coffin at his full military honors funeral......

Mom has the flag that was on her Dad’s coffin at his full military honors funeral……

But there are a LOT of heroes to celebrate today……………….and me and my family want to thank each and every one who is serving or has served their country.   Thank you for your sacrifices and dedication.

Honoring our Veterans,

Sammy and Mom

VETERANSDAY

  1. Great post today for Veteran’s Day, Sammy! Sweet thoughts about spending a lovely day with your Mom and her dad on the other side of the Bridge one day in the FAR distant future…!
    Mom’s busy right now, and I don’t know about the Teaser. 😉
    Love, Sundae

  2. Good morning, Sammy,
    Now that’s one even I know: the Alamo – the Shrine of Texas – in San Antonio. Well, I should know as it’s not far from Fredericksburg, where I live. Btw, when I came to Texas the first time, in the summer of 1999, my wife [well, we married quite some time later only] took me there. Oh, one more question: how could you get the picture without tourists??!! 😉
    Re Veterans’ Day: I’d like to use the opportunity of this posting to convey my heartfelt gratitude to all those veterans who risked their lives to enable me – a native German born in 1947 – to grow up in freedom. And I”m also including in my thoughts those who gave their lives.
    Have a great day,
    Pit

    • Hi Mr. Pit! Thanks for taking a guess on the Teaser today. Tomorrow I’ll let everyone know if you and some of the others are RIGHT about your guess!!!! As for why no tourists in the photo, it’s like any tourist attraction type place – you have to really be in the right spot at the right time – like SUPER early in the morning…………there is a guy coming in from the right side of that photo though!!1 HAHAHA

      Hugs, Sammy

    Happy Veteran’s Day to everyone who has served our country. My Dad served in the Navy and also instilled a great love of country in me.

    • Hi Miss Jan! Well, thanks for guessing today even if the dentist kept you from getting here earlier….tomorrow I’ll be telling everyone WHERE this photo was taken FOR SURE……….it sounds like your Dad and my Mom’s Dad were both great patriots who passed that along to their daughters.

  5. Well, we are super late today ’cause Mau has been hogging the computer getting ready for the Jamboree. Mom says she has been to this Teaser location. It is The Alamo Mission in San Antonio, TX. It does appear that this has already been guessed by most participants. Good choice for today. Mau is going to talk about his Grandpa at Campfire later today for Veteran’s Day!

  10. Paws up for your human’s dad’s dedicated service! My human said, “The Alamo” before the photo even stopped downloading… how she figured that, I have no idea because she has never been there. Maybe she remembered from watching a Pee Wee Herman movie.

  16. I attended my first Remembrance service this year! Our boating group puts one together in the marine park at the dock. We have a pilot in our group that does synchronised flying and his flying team flew over us in formation. I wasn’t sure I liked the bagpipes, but maybe it was the wind…it was very windy. Your human grandpa seemed like a very remarkable human indeed.=^,,^=
