Teaser Tell All Time!!


Tell It Like It Is…..


Hello students of geography – and welcome to another Wednesday when we learn who has been studying like a good student and who needs to hit the books before NEXT Tuesday!

First, let me thank our pawsome GUEST TEASER for yesterday’s photo………….THANK YOU to Miss Layla of Cat Wisdom 101 for sending in that great photo of a “lobster in space” flying above some city getting fresh air and pointing direction for anyone caring to know where the wind is coming from!

Thank you Miss Layla for the fabulous TEASER photo of 9/20/16!!

Thank you Miss Layla for the fabulous TEASER photo of 9/20/16!!

And WHERE did Miss Layla take the photo?   Well, she snapped it down on the Boston Wharf in Boston, Massachusetts!    A couple of you even guessed the actual building the weathervane is on!  BRAVO…………………but who gets what today……….I know you’re just dying to know!

First off, we had a TIE for First Commenter – and it was a “Tie Made In Heaven” because it was Raz of Friends Furever AND Madi of Down Home in NC and as we all know (unless you’ve been hiding under a rock) Raz and Madi are an ITEM and these two commented during the first minute the Teaser went live.    Concatulations to both of you and EACH of you get this:


And who was the lucky receiver of the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER badge this week?    It was our friends the Kitties Blue from The Cat On My Head – that’s who!   Concatulations to you all and this little beauty is YOURS:


Several other smarties were out there yesterday though and we had several other “Boston, Mass” answers so if you were one of them, this is yours!


Have no fear if you were wrong when you guessed…….maybe next week you’ll be lucky!  In the meantime, you can console yourself with one of these:


Who knows what our photo will be next week……………could be anywhere!   So you’d better be on your toesies by then so you can take a whack at the piñata of Teaser (hahaha).   Thanks for playing along and should you have a photo that you think would work for me to use, send it to me at junekimm(at)aol(dot)com !

I also thought I’d share some coolio photos with you……………you may recall that I told you the ever-fabulous and talented Miss Sharon of GENTLE STITCHES had designed and was making a couple of prototypes of a new tote she called the “Sammy Tote” – because she said she took the inspiration for it from ME ME ME!    That alone made my heart beat faster because I’ve never to my knowledge inspired anyone before BUT, guess what came in the mail from Australia yesterday??!!   That’s right – the world’s first Sammy Tote!    Mom tried to take a photo of me and her with the bag but I was squirmier than a greased pig (no offense Bacon) but Dad did squeeze this one out which is as close as it’s gonna get:

sammytote2Yep – I was less than cooperative for this photo shoot…………….Mom had Dad take a couple of others – one of her holding the tote and another of me giving the tote the SNIFF INSPECTION:

Hey - this smells like Australia!

Hey – this smells like Australia!

So darn cute - note the TAIL!

So darn cute – note the TAIL! The tote is nice and roomy too!

Miss Sharon tells us that the pattern for this cute tote will be available in December from RAVELRY.com and I am sure lots of people will want it – I’ve already seen on her blog at Gentle Stitches some other people are suggesting other anipals as “stars” of the tote but no matter what the future holes for the tote, I was FIRST and I was so surprised when I found out, and I will never forget Miss Sharon’s kindness.

AND – last but not least, I just thought I’d share that yours truly FORGOT that I was getting close to my 2,000 post………well, it came and went and I didn’t even notice it but still, I think it’s pretty cool that I’ve managed to squeeze out over 2,000 blogs since I started blogging in 2011.   Other interesting figures Mom saw on my stats page are:

228,500 views of my blog

28,810 Visitors so far

My BEST DAY ever was Oct. 30, 2013 when I had 708 views (it was my Halloween costume contest!)

AND……I have 636 WordPress followers and 195 Facebook followers

Thank you friends for having fun with me!

Tomorrow is Thoroughly Poetic Thursday and it will be the letter “O” that we’ll do poems for – put your thinking caps on and share your poem about “O” here on my blog by putting the poem in comments OR leave your blog link here to your post so we can read your “O” poem……..I’m thinking WHAT to write about that starts with the letter “O”……..Ovaltine?  Ocean?  Olive Oil? 

See you tomorrow !!

Hugs, Sammy

Stars wear sunglasses, right?

Stars wear sunglasses, right?

One final note……..like many of you have reported on YOUR blogs, we are now having problems with our comments on some of your blogs – particularly other WordPress blogs – showing up on your sites……..we have tried to send notes to most of you to please check your spam and “unspam” us so we don’t go to “neverland” in SPAMVILLE, but if you haven’t heard from me lately, check that spam…..chances are we’re there!

    • WordPress has had some problems lately but then I think all of these sites do from time to time. We have our comments going into people’s spam a lot lately……In fact, come to think of it, we might not be getting notices of YOUR blog either – we’d better check!!!!!

      Love, Uncle Sammy


  9. Concats to Raz and Madi for being first commenters. We were fast asleep and not thinking about Sammy’s mystery picture. Also concats to the Kitties Blue…right on you smooth ones. Sammy you are immortalized in a tote. Excellent my friend.

  10. Sammy, Mom will send you an e-mail later today with the e-mail address to send the info about the SPAM problem. They are very quick to fix it. We were so delighted and excited to be the first right guesser this week. When Mom gets a chance she’ll tell everybody in a post. That tote is so cute. Looks big enough for you to fit inside! Mom thinks the tail is super cute, but she knows she’d be shutting it in doors and otherwise catching it on things. Still fun as can be. You deserve to have lots of things named after and inspired by you. Sending love and hugs from all of us and Mom too! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


    • You’re so sweet – the email thing is a pain in the tushie – Mom’s been sending email to the people she can to let them know to check their spam file and amazingly a number of them have and there our comments were resting comfortably! CONCATS again on being FIRST RIGHT GUESSER! It was a fun one – Miss Layla send us some good pix! The tote is adorable and Mom is afraid the tail will drag on the floor so we have tucked it up inside the tote…..I just love that the face and tail are FURRY……..!

      Love and Hugs, Sammy


  11. What a beautiful tote! You are definitely an inspiration, Sammy.
    We’ve had your comments going to moderation, but at least I get notified of that so I can get you out of that “purgatory” quickly. – LOL. What is going on in WP land lately anyway??


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
