Teaser Tell All AND More…..

Class Is In Session!

(Looks Like SHOW AND TELL Day To Me!)

Hello Class!

Good Morning Professor Sammy!

We get to find out the scoop on yesterday’s Teaser this morning.   I just KNOW you’re all dying to find out WHO our Guest Teaser was, WHERE the photo was taken, and of course WHO won badges this week right?

Yes Professor Sammy!

OK then let’s get to it.    First of all, I believe we should say that the FIRST PERSON to comment yesterday commented two minutes after we went live……..I’m only mentioning that because I think it was the FIRST TIME EVER someone wasn’t there the second we went live!    But the first one to get here yesterday was (wait for it……):

Miss Pix !!!   Here’s her BLOG

YAY Miss Pix – you win this:

Now for the Teaser info………………it was a Guest Teaser, and our “Guest” was my cat friend Gracie and her Mom Miss Stephanie from HERE and it was a photo that a friend of Miss Stephanie said we could use for a Teaser…….here it is one more time for you to see!

This photo was taken on the streets of Milan, Italy…………and I am embarrassed to say that a few of you noticed something Mom and I had NOT noticed which is there’s an Italian flag on one of the buildings along the street which was a bit of a “hint” we didn’t even know we had!     It’s a pretty photo though isn’t it?   Colorful and interesting too!

So WHO guessed it first?

Miss Csilla from HERE

Wahooooo Miss Csilla – you win this:

Know what else?    There were several MORE of you who guessed Milan, Italy – lots of you noticed that flag and knew about the trams, etc. and guessed it right so those of you who did get this:

If you didn’t guess correctly – don’t feel bad – at least you stuck your toes in the water (hahaha) and guessed and for that effort, you all get the GREENIE!!!

Another SUCCESSFUL Teaser Tuesday bites the dust!

What do you say to a bit of a celebration with a cheer from our fluffy Cheerleader SuzieQ????   Oh yeah – before we call her in for a cheer, let me show you a photo I have of her when she’s angry – remember yesterday she said in her cheer something about not making her HUFFY because she’d get FLUFFY?    Some of you said you’d like to see her fluffy……are you ready for this – Don’t tell her I showed you this or she’s liable to get VERY fluffy OK?????????

See what I mean?   Kinda freaky huh?   OK – now remember – nobody tells her we showed her fluffiness right?

Settle down class…..here she comes……Shhhhhh!

Here I am cute as can be
Wigglin’ my buns for you for free
I don’t get paid to be here to cheer
But once in a while I can sneak a cold beer
Miss Pix commented first so good for you!
Miss Csilla guessed right first so let’s cheer for her too!
Next week we’ll get TOUGH I know we will
Cuz I know who our Guest is but that info I won’t “spill” !!

Thank you Suzie!   We may not pay you but we know how much you love to show off so you make a PERFECT cheerleader for our Teasers every week!    Let’s give her a hand class!

Assistant Prof Teddy and I will see you next week same time and place right?   Right!   It’s a DATE!  

Class Dismissed!

AND NOW for something completely different!     Some of you may remember that we have been hosting that world-traveling rock-n-roller ROCK boy Bashful from the Hotel Thompson where Bacon lives (HERE).    He’s been here a while but we were enjoying his visit so much that we were happy that he wanted to stay here and REST UP a bit before continuing his world travels.   He’s been just about EVERYWHERE and actually had been here to visit Angel Sammy before he was an Angel.

This time while he was here we concentrated on letting him get some REST and just “take it easy”…………We already showed you a couple of pix from his first days here but we’ll show you again in case you forgot.    The first thing he did when he arrived was visit Angel Sammy’s little memorial in Mom’s room:

That first night he was here, he slept in the guest room bed…….nice and cozy…….and took some books to bed with him to read – he was so tired it took him the whole rest of his visit to read them all!

Once in a while we’ve seen him curl up with a blankie and even take an extra nap during the day……..I’m telling you this was one POOPED rock when he got here!

When we took him shopping to make sure we had on hand some of his favorite foodables, guess what he headed for first:

Yep – Guinness……a rock-sized bottle of the stuff!

He also developed a fondness for another Virginia specialty – Virginia Diner Old Bay seasoned peanuts!

We couldn’t blame him – they are delish!

Teddy had a lot of fun getting to know him………..

Teddy showed him an “alternative” bed in the guest room that he might like to try out but Bashful thought it was a bit too FEMININE for a manly rock like him (we agree!):

Bashful thought Teddy’s Cat Scouts Trophy for his winning several categories in the Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby race this year was rather impressive!!!

Every time Mom and Dad had a little road trip or expedition scheduled and invited Bashful to come along to sightsee, he declined – he just wanted to be with Teddy at the house – watching TV or playing games or just RELAXING.     So now that Bashful is about to head back home, we want you to know at the Hotel Thompson that he is RESTED and ready for more traveling and fun.   He has been the perfect guest and is welcome back at the Kimmell B&B any time he wants!

Bashful we’ll keep the light on inside the mini-cabin JUST for you!!!

Thanks for being our pal……..say hi to Bacon and all the gang back home for us!

Love, Angel Sammy, Teddy and Mom

Teaser Tuesday

We’re Back!  

Summer School is officially in session……

Hope you had a nice long holiday weekend – we did here in the USA with our Memorial Day weekend and extra day off yesterday.  Of course school was not in session because of that but today we’re back in business with school, cheers, grumpy class monitors, AND of course our Teaser photo!

First thing to do today is COMMENT ON THIS POST!   That’s right – go ahead and comment because maybe you will be our first commenter and if you are, well, you get a BADGE to celebrate that honor with – cool?  Indeed!   If more than one of you posts a comment in the first minute, you each get a badge……we’ll tell you tomorrow WHO wins.  

Shall we start teasing??

OK, everybody sit up straight in your seats and pay attention because I’m going to have Suzie do her cheer THEN we’ll bring in our fabulous security guard who will post our Teaser photo for today.   This is a GUEST TEASER photo – and your job will be to examine it and tell me WHERE WAS THE PHOTO TAKEN????   What town/city/village and what State (if in USA) or Country (if NOT USA) the person who took the photo was IN at the time.   Got it?   

Your instructions were perfect Boss!

Thanks Sarge……………let’s bring our little cheerleader in to shake her tailfeathers and get everyone fired up to make a PERFECT guess shall we?   Suzie?

School is back
Take up the slack!
It’s time to do the tease
C’mon it’ll be a breeze!
Just take your time and examine
Or there will be some body slammin’ !
Don’t make me get all huffy
When I’m mad I get all fluffy
C’mon let’s have some fun
Stick a fork in me because I’m DONE!

Well done Suzie………the only THREAT I heard was the one about body slamming if our students don’t examine the photo right?   OK!   On that high note let’s bring in our security guard and the TEASER PHOTO OF THE WEEK!

I’ve got the photo here Professor Sam!

WHERE WAS IT TAKEN???????????????  REMEMBER, TOWN AND STATE OR COUNTRY!!

IF you are the first person to guess correctly, you will win this:

IF you are RIGHT but aren’t FIRST to guess correctly, you win this:

IF you guess INCORRECTLY, you will still win something because you TRIED!    This fabulous GREENIE will be yours:

AND……………………..if you were the FIRST COMMENTER on this post or one of the FIRST you will get this little gem to share with the universe!

So what are you waiting for?   Get guessing!   The world is waiting to see who is “on the ball” and able to think CLEARLY and figure out where the photo was snapped.   

Assistant Prof Teddy and I are waiting…….

We’ll see you soon!

Professor Angel Sammy and Teddy too!!

Memorial Day Pre-Tease Monday

47

It’s a holiday!  No school today BUT that doesn’t mean we aren’t “pre-teasing” !!

We are definitely getting ready for tomorrow’s Teaser as always but tempering it with a reminder that today is Memorial Day – a day to remember.

After we get our business out of the way, I have a little picnic set up for all of you for the holiday……no, today is NOT about food, but a little food never hurt anyone right?  

Yesterday on the blog, Teddy posed for a very patriotic selfie – you probably saw it but just in case, here it is again!

Nice job Teddy!  

Now shall we discuss the Teaser???    Tomorrow’s Teaser is a Guest Teaser (no groaning now – I know you think they are harder than other Teasers but NOT NECESSARILY!).    So, just be brave and remember it’s all in fun.   OKEE DOKEE?    I will tell you WHO the guest was on Wednesday when we do the Tell All and we WILL be in class that day as well as on Tuesday.

Remember that the Teaser post does not go “live” until WELL after the usual time our blog hits the airwaves which is at 3AM, Eastern Standard Time.   It can be AT ANY TIME on Tuesday morning – makes it that much tougher for you to be on top of things!   That much tougher for you to win FIRST COMMENTER badges because you don’t know WHEN we’ll pop up!   Sneaky huh?   BE BRAVE!  YOU CAN DO IT!

First Commenter on the blog post will get this:

Yep – you can proclaim that you are quick on the draw and commented FIRST (or maybe you will be one of the FIRST because sometimes we have more than one comment during the first sixty seconds the post goes live!!!!).

SO, I guess I’ll be seeing all of you here in class tomorrow??????    Suzie’s on vacation too so no cheer from her today BUT she will be back tomorrow cheering her brains out (which shouldn’t take too long….hahaha).    Meanwhile let’s have a nice Memorial Day Picnic – what do you say????   Enjoy and – remember what today is really all about…………REMEMBERING THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED OR ARE SERVING OUR COUNTRY!

Our picnic area – pull up a chair and grab some food!

Burger? Hot Dog? BBQ?

Ribs, cole slaw, the works!

Watermelon tea

Gotta have baked beans right?

The devil made me do it…..just had to have deviled eggs!

A whole table FULL of desserts!!

Land of the Free
Home of the Brave
THANKS TO THE BRAVE!

Love To All, Angel Sammy and Teddy

Today Mom jazzed up my Selfie for the Memorial Weekend…………she couldn’t help herself………….She used a special Memorial Day filter Lunapic had THEN she added the frame with Pizap and VOILA – there I am – showing off my tummy for the holiday weekend.    Ready?

Since it’s Memorial Day weekend, we are remembering a lot of things including my Grandpa………(as well as anyone else who has ever served their country).    My Grandpa was a career Air Force man and my Mom is very proud of him.    His casket flag is in “our” studio so I see it all the time.    He’s at his own Rainbow Bridge in Arlington National Cemetery.

Mom With Her Dad In His Uniform

This is my Grandpa two years before he went to the Bridge, escorting my Mom down the aisle when she married my Dad!

 

God Bless All Who Serve Their Country in the past, present and future

Love, Teddy

Angel Sammy Salutes You Too!

Beauteous Bacon Day!

52

Oh Boy!  Oh Joy!

It’s that day that Angel Sammy loved so much and I happily “inherited” from him – now that I’m THE KING I feel honored to carry on the tradition of bringing you some BACON fun every week!   This week I searched high and low to bring you some NEW bacon treats……….things that you probably haven’t thought of to make with that luscious stuff we call BACON – or maybe you have thought of them but only in your DREAMS – well I’m here to tell you some of them are REAL!

Take a gander at what I found for you THIS week:

Bacon and bleu cheese stuffed mushrooms

Candied bacon ice cream

Bacon cinnamon rolls

Bacon gorgonzola potato salad

Maple Bacon Truffles

Oysters with bacon and cheese

Bacon peanut brittle

Is your mouth watering yet?    Huh?   Well mine sure is…………….Kind of makes the bacon and eggs my Mom made for breakfast this morning look rather PLAIN but hey – there was BACON and that’s the important thing right?

SO – what do you say gang?  Let’s CELEBRATE bacon today!!

Go ahead – blow out the candles but don’t get melted wax on my bacon please!

We are makin’ bacon and yes you can haz!

Have a bacon-filled Saturday loyal subjects!

King Teddy

Before I go, I am sad to report the loss of another of our good friends, the beautiful Snowball at 15andmeowing.   She had not been well for a while but of course we all hoped that she would be with us for a long time to come……Angel Sammy was one of many who met her at the Bridge yesterday as she returned home from a vet visit……..if you click the badge we made for Snowball, you can visit 15andmeowing to leave a message if you like.
