TEASERJULY21-2015

The sign on the building DOES say “BREWPUB” (some of you guessed that) but where is the building?

Here’s the information on the photo from our GUEST who gave us the photo!

Michelle of My Three Moggies and her husband were on a visit to the USA a few months ago and stopped to see Boulder Dam, and went to the Boulder Dam Brewing Company to their Brewpub afterwards for some REFRESHMENT…………this little statue is so cute – I wonder if Michelle danced like that after a few brewskis?????

Who wins?  Well first off, this is for My Three Moggies

Thanks My Three Moggies!

Thanks My Three Moggies!

My very FIRST COMMENTER was actually Michelle of My Three Moggies but almost simultaneously Easy chimed in so I’m giving BOTH of them this:

Pre-Tease Monday!

Standard

Good Morning and WELCOME to another exciting week………..well, maybe exciting – I guess it’s too early to tell right?   I know that for ME it’s exciting because I will be finalizing my Teaser photo for all of you for tomorrow.   It WILL be a Guest Teaser but I’m still deciding WHICH Guest will be teasing you – I have some doozies to choose from  TRUST ME!

Remember we have new badges and I KNOW you want one of those right?  Our winners last week were quite excited about getting new badges so get ready to be FIRST COMMENTER, FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, RIGHT GUESSER or NO WAY BABY GREENIE !!

Other than that, what’s happening in my world?   Well yesterday with the heat and humidity factored in together it was  105 degrees here!   HOT?  Oh yeah baby indeed it was.   I did ask politely to go outside a couple of times but after the second time when I discovered it was hotter than “you know what” out that, I  decided to keep cool INSIDE.   Mom (who must have had a case of temporary insanity) decided to mow the lawn.   Yep – that’s what I said – MOW THE LAWN.   Dad offered to do it but NOOOOOOOOOOO – Mom lathered up with sunblock, put her hat on and out she went.  She got it all done in 45 minutes then came inside and drank a HUGE glass of lemon iced tea.   I watched from inside – thinking Mom would fall off the tractor in a big sweaty heap as she traveled around the front and back yard but she didn’t…..she soldiered on until it was done.

Sam's Front Yard

Those of you who are now official “Sammy’s Pill Watchers” (hahaha)  will be happy to know that I have had my WHOLE PILL for three days in a row!   Maybe I should make a badge for all of you who want to post it on your blogs  showing you’re on my PILL WATCHING TEAM…….HAHAHAHAHA

Hope all of you have a spectacular day……………..Mom’s headed to the grocery and Dad is heading for the airport.  Me?  Why I’m NAPPING of course!

We call this the Grandma Chair - Sam thinks it's a great nap spot.

Hugs, Sammy

Welcome to Baconville!

Happy Caturday With Bacon!

This is your news reporter Sammy Baconator coming to you from his house in  Baconville……………….what am I reporting on this morning?  Well of course I’m here to tell you that I am in fact HAVING bacon this morning with my parents as I ALWAYS do on a Caturday morning.   You’re not surprised right?  I mean a Caturday without Sammy having bacon would be just plain impossible so in this life – my friends – there’s one thing you CAN count on.  Every Caturday I, Sammy Kimmell, will have bacon until the day I move on to the big Bacon Frying Pan in the sky and no doubt Bacon is on the menu over the Bridge!!   Not that I’m in any hurry to get there you know…..not while I’m HERE enjoying myself on a Caturday!

Here is your usual “cute bacon poster” fix for today……………….then I will return you to your regular programming which should consist of YOU having bacon or at least something else you love for breakfast to start your day properly.

Run Bunnies, Run!

Standard

CLEANING2

 Yep – that’s what Mom said so today is the day!

CLEANINGBANNERRUN BUNNIES ……. RUN!

You know I complain a whole lot about monster day but really I appreciate that Mom and Dad keep the house so nice and neat and clean all week.  With just the three of us living here and rarely having company, the place stays pretty nice and straight though.  The bunnies are few and far between………..Dad changes the filters in the A/C system regularly……when Mom dusts every Friday we don’t have so much dust you can write in it !!     Just a sprinkle here and there…….still, with two monster machines going on two different floors it can be a bit noisy around here for a while.   Today I get a bit of a break……..they won’t be simultaneously  monsterizing because Dad isn’t here!  He’s flying (again) as today is a carbon copy of yesterday with beautiful weather.  Mom will be doing the whole house BUT one floor at a time!   YAY!

So enough about housecleaning……………. how about I tell you about my vet’s phone call to Mom this afternoon.   Turns out my thyroid level is slightly high.  That isn’t a big surprise to my Mom because she’s the one who tries everything to get me to take my pill every day…..and I’m the one who digs his ginger heels in on some days and simply WILL NOT COOPERATE.   Yeah – I take the fall on this one.  Not Mom.   We’ve tried every flavor of yogurt (which worked for a long time), almost every flavor of baby food (which mostly works but not every single time) and you know we tried pill paste, pill pockets and sneaking it in people food including bacon and NOTHING works as well as the baby food.   SO, Mom is going to really work harder to get me to EAT my pill.     As it is, she gives me a little in my first taste of baby food in the morning……then if I’m really eating it well she’ll give me a bit more or sometimes all of it at that time.  If I don’t cooperate, she’ll give me a little then wait until afternoon to try again – AND AGAIN – AND AGAIN  so Mom is trying.   She will continue to try and I promise I will try harder too!    Doc says transdermal is the next step but he really thinks that because my level is only slightly elevated, if Mom can get me to eat more of the pills, I’ll be fine.   THE END.    I go back in 4 months for another checkup.

My Catsultant......hahahaha

My Catsultant……hahahaha

All you ever wanted to know about my health but were afraid to ask (hahahahaha)……………I tell you all everything anyway even if you don’t wanna hear it!

That’s about it for the Friday Report from Casa Kimmell.   I hope all of you are fine, furry and fluffy this morning (or at least FINE!!!!!)……………have a super Friday……………….

Hugs, Sammy

Perfect Thursday!

Standard

FLOWERBANNER1

It’s a perfectly perfect day……. !

The weather lady has been teasing us since last week that we’d have two perfect days this week……..today and tomorrow.   So far so good with her prediction (although she’s often wrong!)……this is going to be a beautiful day and I think Mom and I will have some good “outside/frontporch/yard” time together.  Dad is going flying – he likes flying on PERFECT days.

Dad putting the plane away in the hangar after flying

I’m hoping for a PERFECT report from my vet on the blood work he did Tuesday too.   I had my 4 months checkup for my hyperthyroidism.  Mom’s hoping that my pills are doing the trick.  Since I’m so DIFFICULT about taking my pill, if I’m still in good range then it’s OK if I’m a pain in the tushie sometimes about taking it!

Sam enjoying the front porch on a pretty fall day

How could she call such a PRECIOUS ginger kitty a “pain in the tushie” ??

My PERFECT Thursday is even starting out PERFECTLY.    Mom promised me bacon this morning – WHAT??????   Bacon on a Thursday?   Sure!  Why not!  I deserve a special treat once in a while…..after all I’m Mom’s PERFECT little darling!

Hugs and hope you have a PERFECT day too!

Love, Sammy the PURRRFECT!

WHAT TIME IS IT KIDS?  HUH? 

That’s right – it’s TELL ALL time!

Well what a fun Teaser that was don’t you think?   Wanna see the photo again before I give you the scoop???????   This was a GUEST TEASER from my Mom’s niece Miss Barbara!   Thank you Miss Barbara – this was one of the most FUN Teaser photos I’ve EVER had on my blog!

TEASERJULY14-2015

 HOW FUN IS THIS???!!!

Where did Miss Barbara have her photo taken (other than hanging off a cliff of course!!!!!) – this was snapped at Dead Horse Point State Park in Moab, Utah!    Wanna know who guessed it right first?  OK – but  let me tell you who our FIRST COMMENTER was………OR should I say FIRST COMMENTERS?!   This little gem of an award goes to Miss Pix, Oliver and Calvin  AND Flynn!

TEASERWINNER2015-4

It was so close – Oliver and Calvin’s “hello” wasn’t given to me until a minute after two other commenters – Miss Pix and Flynn had tied but WP said O&C’s guess was shortly before Flynn an Miss Pix’s…………confused?  So was I so I decided to give it to all three of them!   YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!  Hope you like your NEWLY designed badge you three!

Who was my FIRST RIGHT GUESSER??????????  It was Miss Caren and Cody from CAT CHAT and let me tell you they were VERY happy to get their badge – the first newly designed FIRST RIGHT GUESSER badge and they’re blogging about it today!

TEASERWINNNER2015-2

Did anyone else guess correctly?   I did have some VERY CLOSE guesses and at least one other Utah one just a different park but if you DID guess correctly, you know what you get!

TEASERWINNER2015-3

Then of course there’s that category that seems to be EVER SO POPULAR!   That’s right – it’s the “I don’t know, I haven’t the slightest idea, don’t ask me, DUH” category of guessers who don’t guess right or just plain do NOT know………….you get a brand new GREENIE!

TEASERWINNER2015-1

I love all of you whether you were wrong or right because you’re here EVERY TUESDAY and you have fun with me and my wacky sometimes impossible photos.   I SO look forward to Tuesdays.  I hope you do too!

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!
