Teaser Tell All

HELLO CLASS!!!!

HELLO CLASS!!!!

 

Say – that was a pretty darn good Teaser don’t you think?   First it was INVISIBLE (hahaha) as while it showed up Monday night when Mom and I “previewed” my Teaser post, somehow it disappeared from my blog by Tuesday morning……we didn’t know that though until we started getting notes from you guys saying you couldn’t see the photo!    Mom went into panic mode – we figured out what the problem was and loaded it up AGAIN……….WHEW!    That means from now on, Mom is gonna TRIPLE check the post before it goes live.   No more boo boos otherwise SuzieQ is bound to call both me and my Mom GEEZER!

SO, first off we want to thank our Guest Teaser, Miss Janet and all the Kitties Blue from The Cat On My Head for the fabulous photo of the GRAYLYN INN, in Winston-Salem, NC.    Here it is:

The Graylyn is NOT in the Historic District, and is NOT in Old Salem – Miss Janet and her husband have stayed there and said it’s CLOSE to that area but NOT in that area……….I’m mentioning that because a few of you guessed Historic District or Old Salem (but didn’t mention Graylyn Inn) and because you were SO DARN CLOSE, you’ll get a special award.    HOWEVER, before I do that, I want to show you some interior shots Miss Janet sent us of this amazing Inn……….WHAT A PLACE!

I could go on all day about this beautiful property on 55 acres with a very interesting past BUT I’ll let you read it for yourself……………………….CLICK HERE and be sure to read the History of the Property and the Overview…………..oh – and take a peek around everything else while you’re there!   My Mom wants to go there – like NOW.    HAHA

First of all, Miss Janet was my FIRST COMMENTER – how’s that for a nice way to thank her?    So I have the “Guest Teaser” badge AND the “FIRST COMMENTER” for Kitties Blue:

Thank you Kitties Blue/The Cat On My Head for the fabulous TEASER photo of 7/26/2016

Thank you Kitties Blue/The Cat On My Head for the fabulous TEASER photo of 7/26/2016

The FIRST PERSON to guess Graylyn Inn, Winston-Salem, NC was CarolMayWY !!!!   YAY!!!!   You get this:

TEASERBADGESUMMER16-2

Then there were a few who guessed either “Historic District, Winston-Salem”, or “Old Salem” – but neither of those is correct – but still VERY CLOSE……………so those of you who guessed that will get this!

TEASERAWARDALMOST2016

YEP – it’s a new award but will only go to people who are TRULY on the right trail and give an ALMOST CORRECT answer……….Kolytyi and Oliver and Calvin were VERY CLOSE but not right so they get this award and anyone else who I missed who ALMOST HAD IT!

Nobody else had guessed Graylyn Inn, Winston-Salem, NC when we were doing this post, but if anyone did, you get this:

TEASERBADGESUMMER16-3

And of course those of you who were just plain WRONG get this:

TEASERBADGESUMMER16-4

SO, that new award probably won’t be given out very often but who knows…………you all are getting VERY GOOD at this Teaser stuff – I’m so proud of my Geography students!    See you all next week – I’ll try to have another STUMPER for you!

Until Then – Hugs from “THE PROF” !!

  1. It was a fab teaser, many-many thanks to Miss Janet for the pics and congrats for the winners! I’d like to ask, also on behalf of Oliver and Calvin, whether we will be called “an almost wheezer” or “almost a wheezer” by SuzieQ?

    • I agree – it is VERY European in style……turrets, stone, etc. and the whole history of the place is fascinating – I’m sure there was a LOT of European influence involved!!!!!

  3. I think Suzie wanted to call us all geezers so she hid the photo. I would have guessed that photo was taken in England, never the USA so you stumped me. Congrats to all the smarties and fast guessers. XO

  5. Sammy, we know for sure that had Mom not been there and sent this to you, that she would have thought it was in the U.K. Thanks for the cool new badges. Mom is going to put them on our sidebar today! Ever since SuzieQ used Geezer the other day, Dad keeps calling Mom and himself geezers. Mom is not impressed by that. It is supposed to be a few degrees cooler today with 2 to 3 inches of rain. We are hoping that rain materializes. Stay cool. Love, Kitties Blue and Janet

  8. That was a good teaser, Sammy. I was way out thinking it could be France. I’m lucky to get here because mum has had more than a few adult beverages helping dad celebrate his birthday. She said she was just going to check her emails before she went to bed, then she let me visit you too.

    • Oh Flynn it sounds like you had a wonderful family party for your Dad yesterday – I’m glad…..I have always loved the photos of you two together in the fields – you and I are both lucky to have great Cat Dads (and Mums) and I know you were happy to help him celebrate yesterday!

      Love, Sammy
