Teaser Tell All

Standard

 

TEASERTELLALL

Now wasn’t THAT a fun Teaser yesterday???????   Yes it was (I’ll answer for you)…………..it was a good Teaser (Mom was worried it wasn’t going to be) don’t you think?   Here’s the photo again:

 TeaserFeb17-2015

So where is this cathedral located?  It’s Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin, Southern Ireland!   I had some guesses that it was Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC and that guess was “close” wasn’t it?!?!?!    But there were a few people who guessed correctly but only ONE of them was FIRST – wanna know who????   Well, before I tell you I can report that our good pal Easy who won the “FIRST COMMENTER” badge last week ALSO was first commenter this morning.  I think the fact that he’s on nursing duty taking care of his Mom who fractured her elbow in a nasty fall MIGHT be why he’s right on top of his computer and saw the blog go live yesterday AM!!!   CONCATS EASY – you get this! (again)

Now who was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER?   It was my pals at Hutch A Good Life!!!   The guinea piggies win this week!   Here’s your badge boys:

Mardi Gras Teaser

Standard

Gosh – it’s Mardi Gras – and I’m wearing a SNOWSUIT……what’s that tell you?   Things might be heating up on Bourbon Street but not in Warrenton, VA!   (**thank you to Nellie’s Mommy at Cat From Hell for drawing me in a cute snowsuit!!!  hugs!!!!**)

I LOVE IT!!!!!

I LOVE IT!!!!!

I just HAD to work in the fact that today is the start of the Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans into this post SOMEHOW………….so it’s a regular Tuesday for guessing purposes but also Mardi Gras!  WOO WOO!

What a madhouse!

What a madhouse!

So today’s Teaser photo is one of my Mom’s…………….I am anxious to see WHO knows what this structure is called AND where it is located in this wide wonderful world.   Wanna be first?  Well you’d better get going because I’m sure the guesses will be flying in any second………….ready:

Blowing and Snowing

Standard

We’re frozen solid here after two days of incredibly high winds (gusts to 50-60mph) and very cold temps……….and I for one am TIRED OF IT!   We really truly did luck out though on the snow thing because we only got about an inch of it – look what happened up north of Virginia!!!!   EEEEEEEEK!   YIKES!!!!!!    Brrrrrrrrrr!

Thank heavens this is NOT me!

Thank heavens this is NOT me!

Mom has been laughing at me through these past few days though because while I DO still ask if she’ll let me out the door, the minute she opens it and I feel the cold I run 100mph in the other direction OR I’ll go out then ask to come right back inside one minute later.  Hey I like fresh air but not FROZEN fresh air!

COLDpiglet

ANYWAY, moving on from weather to the main event this week which will be of course Tuesday Teaser………………no Guest Teaser this week but we WILL have one NEXT Tuesday!   Swell huh?   Tomorrow’s Teaser will be Mom’s.   And just to remind you – it pops up at a different time every single Tuesday.  Sometimes it’s early – sometimes it’s VERY early – sometimes it’s medium early……well you get the drift right?

Is the Teaser up yet?????

Is the Teaser up yet?????

Remember we have that brand new blog award too – the “First To Comment On the Teaser” award……….which LAST week was won by Easy!

TEASERBADGE2015-4

You know you want it………….so stay tuned to your computer/ipad/iPhone/WHATEVER so you can comment first.  You may not know where the Teaser photo was taken but you can still be the FIRST to comment even if you just say HELLO SAMMY.

Now rest up – tomorrow will be here before you know it.

Have a hopefully UNFROZEN day!

Have you seen my new blog header?  In honor of February 17th MARDI GRAS!!!!!  

 

 

Sunday Review

Standard

My “silent Sunday” isn’t all that silent because I’m going to show you some photos from all the Valentine’s celebrations I was in this weekend………………..it was a whirlwind I tell ya……….for an old guy, I was a real “mover and shaker” !!

See?  Who says the old guy has lost it………………I’m just getting my second wind!

Happy Sunday

Hugs, Sammy

(off to take a long nap!)

 

The Day of LUV!

Standard

♥♥Happy Valentine’s Day!♥♥

Are you waking up this morning to a bouquet of roses?   A special card from your significant other?   A soft paw touching your cheek saying “Mommy(Daddy) time to get up and FEED ME!!!!!” ???   Well, I’m WAKIN’ to BACON myself but you already knew that right?

BACONSIGN2

However, I did get my Dad a Valentine’s Card and my parents exchanged cards.   They already HAD their Valentine’s celebration when they deserted me on Wednesday overnight to go to an Inn in West Virginia.   Today they’ll just stay home and be all cuddily-wuddily (if you believe that I’ve got a bridge I wanna sell ya!).

Part of the Inn they went to......

This is the building at the Inn that my Mom and Dad stayed in!

I have a BIG all day Cat Scouts event today – this is the poster with the details – and I’ll be ready to greet everyone as they arrive this morning for the first event – BREAKFAST.    Later in the evening we have a dance and my girlcatfriend Sundae will be accompanying me for this formal event – I thought you’d like to see us all “gussied up” too!

Are you doing anything special for this DAY OF LUV?   How about your humans?  Any plans for them?   I say LET THE LOVING BEGIN!!!!!

SAMMYValentine

Happy Valentines Day to all my blog friends – thanks for making my blog all about love because it truly is………..the love of one kitty for his Mom, Dad and all his many friends.   You made me what I am today………ONE *OLD* SPOILED CAT !

Love, Sammy

Fry-Day

Standard

Oh boy!  It’s FRY-day……that’s right – I’m getting BACON this morning because my Mom and Dad deserted me Wednesday night for the WHOLE NIGHT on a little out of town trip.   SO, of course I gave Mom the BIG stink eye when she got home yesterday and she said “oh you poor baby – how about BACON tomorrow for breakfast – will that make up for us being gone????”………….who am I to deny her enjoyment in providing me with extra bacon this week right?

BACONRECIPE

Other than bacon for breakfast which will be a wonderful and delightful treat, I will have to endure the housecleaning THING and laundry THING but I believe when a tummy full of bacon, I’ll just retire to the basement to my favorite chair and snooze right through all the noise!

SamSleepCute2

Mom and Dad were in West Virginia for their overnight trip……….they stayed in an old Inn………..I’ll show some photos on my blog but Mom’s too lazy busy catching up on email and blog comments to upload the photos from her camera……ANWYAY, on their way home yesterday it snowed like MAD.   The wind was howling so it was like being in a snow squall – snow blowing totally sideways at times and coming down so much that you couldn’t see the road in front of you very well.   The weird thing was that they’d go through one of those “squalls” then they’d be on dry road with no snow for five minutes then hit another “squall”.   Mom said it was really WEIRD.   They got home fine though and while it’s cold here (36) we don’t have any snow……….at least not yet!

Looked a bit like this only not as much snow ON the road - more flying through the air!

The Valentine’s celebrations are starting up – my first two parties will be today.  I’ll report on them this weekend…………what a social whirl my life is.  HAHAHAHAHA….. Never a dull moment (unless I’m sound asleep).

Won't you be my Valentine?????? Hmmmm??

Won’t you be my Valentine?????? Hmmmm??

TEASERTELLALL

Oh my goodness!   Looks like I created a monster with the new badge………..I had messages all morning – “I’m HEEEEERE!!!!!”………”WHERE IS THE TEASER?!”………….. “I WANNA BE FIRST!”

Well there could only be one “FIRST” and only one “FIRST RIGHT”………but as we all know there can be tons of “RIGHT” and “WRONG” – confused?   Me too.   So, let’s get on with it.  Here are the photos from yesterday:

First things first, THANK YOU to my Guest Teaser, Miss Carolyn who is Austin’s Mum at CATachresis which is my buddy Austin’s blog!   Where did she snap the photo?   It’s a couple of photos of the Old Roman Theatre in Beit She’an, Israel!!    This is for you Miss Carolyn and Austin:

Thanks Austin and Miss Carolyn!

Thanks Austin and Miss Carolyn!

WHO was the first one to arrive at the Teaser yesterday morning?   Not necessarily to guess but to be the first commenter?   It was our old buddy Easy – that’s right – he took a break from being caregiver to his Mum who fractured her elbow on the ice the other day in order to be standing by the computer to make sure he was FIRST and he was!   He commented ONE minute after the post went live at 8:41EST.    This is yours my friend:

TEASERBADGE2015-4

WHO was the first to correctly guess the location where the photo was snapped?   It was our friend Leo from Walk to Ri02016 and he guessed it perfectly……..he’s been just about everywhere in the world and all that travelling paid off!   Good for you Mr. Leo!   You get this:

TEASERBADGE2015-1

Anyone else who guessed correctly you get to have this little gem:
