Tuesday Teaser



Here we go again!!!   Another chance to exercise your eyeballs (and your human helpers eyeballs of course) by scanning, examining, magnifying a couple of photos to see if you can determine WHERE WAS THIS PHOTO TAKEN?!    This Tuesday I have a Guest Teaser for you.   There are TWO photos of this structure and your job (should you choose to accept it) to tell me WHERE is this building located?    I don’t think you’ll find ANY clues in the photos either so this will be a challenge to say the least.   Because I think this is a toughie, just let me know what State or Country you think this structure is in………..unless you want to make a TOTAL guess – more power to you!!!!!!!

So are you ready?


Now, if you are the very first person to comment on today’s Teaser post – whether you guess or just say “howdy” – you will win this!

If you guess, and you’re the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on today’s Teaser and can tell me where this photo was taken, you get this:


If you guess right but aren’t FIRST, you still get to claim this:


And if you are a fan of GREEN things (hahahaha) – no, seriously, if you have no clue or guess wrong, you will still get this:


Now, it’s up to you to do the rest……………….and then tomorrow on my Teaser Tell All I will be TELLING ALL!

Ready, Set, GO!  

Hugs and Good Luck 



Thanks Friends!


Hi Everyone – another exciting week off to a grand start huh?   Well, at least it’s starting – who knows if it will be “grand”!

I need to say THANK YOU to two of my friends who nominated One Spoiled Cat for blog awards in the past week.   I have both of these awards already but one should ALWAYS thank those who honor them in some way even if you have received the honor before.   At least that’s what I think!

First The Mad Hooligan Chronicles nominated me for the Creative Blogger Award.   Thank you Bo and Kobi!


The rules are:

1.  Mention who nominated you for the award and link back to them.

2.  Display the award image above your post.

3.  Share FIVE random facts about yourself.

4.  Nominate as many blogs as you wish (with a minimum of five) and notify them of their nomination   (in this case, please if you would like to have this award for your VERY own, take it from this post with my love and hugs as I really don’t know who would and who would not enjoy receiving it!)

5.  Pass the Rules on to your nominees.

Here are my FIVE Random Facts!

  1. Even though I’m “out there” on my blog, I’m a very shy guy in person…..I recently extended my boundaries though when we had company and allowed petting and carrying of my ginger self!
  2. I can say several words (at least Mom thinks they sound like words)…..I say “OUT”, “MAMA”, and “YOYO” (yogurt).
  3. I am part “watch cat” – if a neighborhood cat comes on my front porch, I will yell “MAMA” until my Mom comes and shoooos the visitor away (or feeds him or her!).
  4. Most of you know I’m a polydactyl kitty – I have SIX toes on my front paws and the regular amount of toes on my back paws (just in case some of you didn’t know!).
  5. I enjoy being a Cat Scout.   Cat Scouts have a whole lot of fun – we go on trips, earn merit badges, make new friends and do service projects just like human Scouts do!

The second award I received was from my friends Dezi and Lexi at Dezie’s World.   They nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.   Thank you ladies!!


This one requires that you nominate 15 blogs and I have a terrible time nominating ANY blogs as I have so many of you that I follow and don’t want to leave anyone out – I usually just say please take this award with my blessings if you would like to follow the rules!

All you have to do beyond that is:

  1. Mention who nominated you, thank them and link back to them.
  2. Display the award on your blog.
  3. List THREE things that inspired you in the last week.

The three things that inspired me this past week are:

  1. Meeting a blogger friend of my Mom’s and learning to TRUST a stranger – I rarely let anyone even SEE me if I don’t know them but my Mom’s friend inspired me to be brave.
  2. Reading the blogs of so many of my friends who are unwell yet carry on with a smile and a cheery message to the world in spite of any sorrow or discomfort they may have.
  3. Waking up every morning and realizing that I’m traveling into my senior years in better shape than many of my older friends……this inspires me to put one paw in front of the other every day.

So, thank you to my friends – and remember, if you’d like to have either or both of these awards, I hope you can do a better job of fulfilling the requirements than I have done – as I said, I have a hard time nominating “just five” or “just 50” of my friends………I would give it to EVERYONE if I could………….

Love and Hugs






Quiet Bacon Day


Good Morning Peeps!   Having a QUIET Caturday – fortunately, other than the occasional crunching sound on that nice crispy bacon, it’s almost ALWAYS quiet at my house on Caturday.

Shhhhh!!!!!   Quiet Please!!!!

Shhhhh!!!!! Quiet Please!!!!

Mom and Dad are monsterizing today as they decided to take the day off from that kind of activity yesterday.   Instead, Mom did a bazillion loads of laundry and Dad went to the airport – not to fly – just to say hi to his airplane.    Today they “pay the piper” and clean……..should I help out?    Oh why not!   Gives me a chance to wear my Superman apron.

"Mr. Clean" (?)

“Mr. Clean” (?)

Mr. Craig and Miss Michelle (My Three Moggies) are in NYC today and I think tomorrow they fly back across the pond, but Mr. Craig did a nice piece on his Naked Eye Travel blog about their visit with my Mom and Dad so you might enjoy taking a peekie HERE:      I will post more photos from their stay with us but not today – today is ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL about me me me and bacon bacon bacon… if you’ll excuse me – I’ll get down to it!

Hugs, Mr. Bacon


Shopping Round the World!



Oh boy!  It’s time to compare prices on stuff!  This is tons of fun……..interesting to see what we all pay for the same things (or similar things) around the world……………This week Bacon had us look for five items, and here’s what WE found out about prices of stuff in our little town in Virginia:

3.  Canned Product:   Mom chose Bush’s Blackeyed Peas in the 15 oz. can



4.  Homemade Meal Ingredients of Your Choice:     One of Mom and Dad’s favorite “quickie meals” is homemade Jambalaya – while you can add “extras”, basically it’s Andouille (spicy) sausage and Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix!   Easy!

8 oz. box - $2.15

8 oz. box – $2.15

There you have it!   Shopping in my town – Mom has been doing a lot of shopping the past few days with company here but this morning Miss Michelle and Mr. Craig from MY THREE MOGGIES left for the airport to fly to NYC for a few days before heading back to Oscar, Archie and Henry – their three moggies – who no doubt miss them!   We will miss them too – I got to know them and was very brave and even let Miss Michelle carry me around!   I’ll share some videos she did of me after we receive them from them when they return home………..I know some of you have been after me FOREVER AND EVER to do a video…..we had no way to do it but Miss Michelle did some with her fancy phone while they were here.   WOOT!

Happy Friday – we’ll be back to regular blog schedule starting tomorrow………………….honest!
