Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Students Please Take Your Seats!!  Class is about to start……..

Happy Tuesday all………………..remember to comment on this post because you MIGHT be the first to do so and THAT would get you a special badge to display on your blog, FB page, WHATEVA – so hurry up and comment then back to your desk quickly please!

MOVE IT!

(Uhoh…..everybody be extra good in class today because Sarge’s date didn’t turnout so well………..he says no more dates with lady wrestlers for him………..ouch)

Now, shall we REALLY begin class?   OK – today we have a Guest Teaser for you to peruse/study/agonize over and the very FIRST person to guess WHERE this photo was taken will win this:

You know you want this badge – especially if you’ve NEVER won one of them before so study hard AND remember EVERYONE that you MUST guess WHAT ARE WE SEEING IN THIS PHOTO and where was it taken?    I need the State (if USA) or Country (if NOT USA) !!!!    Got it?

To pump you all up before our Security Guard comes to display today’s photo, let’s bring Suzie in for another cheer………..she got your blood pumping yesterday with her Pre-Tease Monday cheer right?   Let’s hope it works again today!

I’m a little bit MAD
About that date that I HAD
The football player was mean
And a real skinny string bean
No muscles and no six-pack
No meat on his rib rack!
No more blind dates for me
My dates from now on I’ll SEE
I’ll try not to be grumpy
Though my “dating road” is bumpy
Let’s give this teaser a try
And I’ll try hard not to cry!
sniff……………

Gosh Suzie – sorry your big date didn’t work out.   Neither did Sarge’s………….!

Yeah well he’s a million years older than me so I’m not interested in him but I wish him luck……maybe if he SMILED????!!!!!

OK – let’s get back to the Teaser…………..Mr. Silver Briefcast/Security Guard/State Trooper guy – please come on down and show us today’s Teaser!!

I’ve got the photo here Professor Sam!

Where Was this Photo snapped? 

OK – you’re on your own kiddos…………study and guess and hopefully you can win a badge……………….!    No matter whether you win or lose you still get SOMETHING – it might be a GREENIE but it’s something!

REMEMBER WHAT YOU CAN WIN…………………………………………………….

If you DO guess correctly and you’re FIRST to do so you get this:

If you guess correctly BUT you’re not first you get this:

And then there’s the LOVELY Greenie for WRONG Guesses:

SEE????  EVERYBODY WINS!

Tomorrow in class we’ll hand out all the badges to our various winners AND we’ll also tell you who our GUEST TEASER was…………….now won’t that just be FUN FUN FUN?

If you say so Professor Sammy

Assistant Professor Teddy and I will look for you in class tomorrow – don’t be late or Sarge just might be waiting for you at the school room door………….or maybe Miss Dingleberry will be there which just MIGHT be worse!

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

Have A Seat Students!

Another week begins and yet again it’s the “day before the Teaser” here at Ding Dong School.    Yep – time for us to at least START getting our brains tuned into geography and the task ahead of figuring out where a photo was taken.    Where in this WIDE WIDE world was “someone” when they took a photo of where they were visiting?!?!?!

We will have a Guest Teaser tomorrow – a photo submitted by ONE OF YOU to our “Teaser Department” here at the School – but the most important thing is to remember when you arrive here at school tomorrow – try to comment right away because you might be the FIRST COMMENTER and that means you MIGHT win a badge to celebrate that honor!  WHEEEE!

Some of you may already know that TODAY is “International Box Day” in the blogosphere – most of us who are in the category of MEOW/Cat are cardboard box fans and we celebrate that every year (any excuse to have a celebration you know – we are true party animals…..).

I’m only mentioning Box Day because Suzie has chosen to feature that special day in her cheer for you this morning.

Suzie would you care to come in and scream your cheer out for everyone????

It’s Box Day, Box Day
You’ve got a head full of rocks day!
Boxes are great for perfect snoozing
CATillacs are nice for luxury cruising
If you’re not SHARP tomorrow
You might be LOSING –
So study up tonight and be sharp as a tack
Or you’ll be so embarrassed that you might not come back!

 

Thanks Suzie………..you started out talking about boxes then moved onto the piece de resistance (oui oui!) which is TEASER!    Everyone remember the post tomorrow will pop up at some surprise time – not the regular time.

Assistant Professor Teddy and I hope that you will take Teaser seriously and be alert and ready to try and figure out tomorrow’s Teaser photo – maybe we’ll have a new winner this week or maybe it will be one of our “Frequent Flyers” in the winning column?    It’s all up to YOU!!!!!!

No pressure though………

Just get here when you can and GUESS!     We will see you all here tomorrow at an UNKNOWN TIME!     Get your rest tonight!

P.S.   We just were catching up on blogs and saw that one of our friends, Minko, has passed over to the Rainbow Bridge on Father’s Day…………………we send big hugs to his family – and if you click on the beautiful badge below, you can visit his blog to leave a message if you wish…………

Sunday Selfie for Father’s Day

Standard

Happy Father’s Day!

Today we are again participating in The Cat On My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop but of course we’re honoring our Dad at the same time………………..our selfie today is dedicated to him………..even though one of us has gone to the Rainbow Bridge, you will always be our Dad.

If you’d like to visit The Cat On My Head to join in the hop with the LINKY tool, please do!   The more the merrier…………….just click their badge below to go!

This is the first Father’s Day that Dad hasn’t had a card and present from Angel Sammy – and Sammy always left him a secret special note in the tiny little “journal” that Dad keeps by his recliner in the Family Room.    I almost put a note in there for him like Angel Sammy used to but somehow it just didn’t seem right………that was between Dad and Sam………..instead, I got him a special card celebrating OUR first Father’s Day together which I gave him this morning along with his present.

Always and Forever…….Angel Sammy and Teddy

I Miss You Pop-Pop…………

Friendly Fill-Ins

Standard

Time to Fill In!

Oh goodie – one of my favorite Blog Hops is Friday’s Friendly Fill-Ins co-hosted by Miss Ellen of 15andmeowing and Miss Annie of McGuffy’sReader.     They each give us two sentences with blanks to fill with our own words and I usually let Mom fill in but maybe I’ll answer a couple and let Mom answer a couple today.    If you click on the badge above you will go to McGuffy’s Reader where you can use the LINKY tool and “hook up” your own blog to this fun Hop!!!

Mom’s fill-ins are in RED and mine are in GREEN!

1. I challenge everyone to try and stay cool – it’s been ridiculously HOT this week.

2. I regret disposing of a lot of my old photos – photos are memories that you can’t replace.

3. I have a difficult time admitting that I MIGHT be a little overweight – Mom says I’m “pleasingly plump” but I’m thinking I need to ADMIT I need to cut down on the treats!.

4. If I were given a psychic power, I would like it to be clairvoyance.
So there you have it – two from ME and two from MOM and these were super interesting sentences this week so we can’t WAIT to see what everyone else says!    You can head over to the Hop and visit everyone to see how they did……………easy peasy.
Reminder that tomorrow is BACON SATURDAY…………………………….Angel Sammy is going to be visiting from the Bridge tomorrow so the two of us will have bacon goodies for all of you!

Love, Teddy

 

 

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Thankful Thursday Time

(then we’ll be creatively poetic!)

Time again to join Brian’s “Thankful Thursday” blog hop – and you can too if you just click the badge above and use the LINKY tool when you arrive to add your blog link and SHARE!   Today I’m thankful for bunches of things………..I’m thankful that I have a COOL house to live in because it’s been unbelievably HOT around here and it makes me worry about all the animals that don’t have a home to be safe and cool in.   I know Angel Sammy is cool – he says it’s perfect temperature all the time at the Rainbow Bridge……!    We are lucky AND we are thankful.    I can stretch out in Mom’s office and enjoy the perfect temperature…………..

Being CUTE before I went over to my beat up kitty cube to snooze…..

In La La Land snoozing………

Now for Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday and today is the FIRST DAY so we will start the alphabet ALLLLLL over again for the THIRD time!    You have a choice of doing a poem about ANYTHING you pick which starts with the letter “A”, OR, using one of Angel Sammy’s prompt words to write your poem about for “A”.    The words he gave us last week are:

(1)  ANTS   (2)  ANGER  (3) APPLES  (4) ANKLES

Sammy decided to do a poem with one of the prompts and chose ANKLES!

“A”

Ankles

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 6/15/17

When I was just a little kit

It’s Mommy’s ankles that took a hit

I’d wait for her to walk on by

Then leap and grab a leg in a flash of an eye!

I’d wrap my arms and hold on tight

Then bite her ankle with all my might!

I know it was mean but it sure was fun

Mom would usually laugh – THEN RUN!!!!

What is it about an ankle that’s hard to resist?

I’m just not sure but I will insist

That kitties deserve a good ankle bitey

To settle for less just wouldn’t be righty!

 

HAHA Angel Sammy – that was a good one………………..!!    I can’t wait to read everyone else’s poem today and you all can give us your blog link to your poem in our comments OR even compose and show off your poem in our comments…..but for heavens’ sake, give writing a poem a try because it’s GOOD for your creativity and FUN for us to read!

Angel Sammy gave me four prompt words for NEXT week’s poetry challenge which will be with the letter “B”………………remember you can do ANY “B” word for your poem or use one of his prompts – it doesn’t matter – just write!

(1)  BANANA (2)  BATH  (3)  BRAVE  (4)  BALLOON

Now, what’s tomorrow???

FRIENDLY FILL-IN FRIDAY with co-hosts 15andMeowing and McGuffy’s Reader…….see you then!

Angel Sammy and Teddy too…………….

 

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Happy Wednesday Class!  

Wasn’t that a great Teaser yesterday???   We thought so – it seems it was a real puzzler for a lot of you but not for our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!    I’ll give you the scoop on that in a minute but first, let’s talk FIRST COMMENTER……………who was ready with a comment the minute we went live yesterday (well, not THE minute but in the first few minutes anyway) – it was:

Miss Csilla of Kolytyi !!

This is for you Miss Csilla

I also must tell you that our Cafeteria Snoopervisor Miss Dingleberry said you little piggies ate ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the pizza up yesterday and she is sure there was rampant indigestion all around the world because you didn’t have just one slice – you went nuts and all of those pizzas were GONE!

Sarge still hasn’t forgiven us for showing that old photo of him with hair being his Grumpy Old Self…………right Sarge??

Yeah right…..but it did get me a date – someone who saw the photo called me and I’m meeting her for a meowgarita tonight!

So happy we could help you find a date Sarge………maybe THAT will make you less grumpy??????

Let’s tell you who our wonderful Guest Teaser was AND where the photo was taken shall we?????????  Oh lets!    A big thank you to our Guest:

MISS JACKIE from Memories of Flynn and Eric – the Mom of Angel Flynn and Angel Eric!    

Here’s the photo she shared with us……………..

Gorgeous photo which she took while on a recent cruise through the British Isles…………and this is Saint Peter Port in Guernsey in the Channel Islands!!!    The cruise ship can’t dock at port but you can take a small boat from the ship into port…….isn’t it a beautiful view?    The castle on the left of the photo is “Castle Cornet”…………………

This is for you Miss Jackie for being our Guest Teaser

For Jackie’s photo for our Teaser of 6/13/17

Now I suppose you’d like to know WHO was our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER yesterday too………..Well I think the name of our winner will ring a bell – he’s fast catching up to his Angel brother Easy on the HIT PARADE OF WINNERS here –

Our friend Da Phenny was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!!!!

Woo Hoo Da Phenny!    Way to go my friend………………and I believe we had a couple of others who guessed Guernsey, UK too…………………you get this:

But by far the most popular badge yesterday (ahem) was the famous GREENIE which goes to all those who guessed incorrectly!

Don’t Forget To Copy Your Badge and Display it with PRIDE!!!!!!

Suzie asked if she could do a cheer for you today – sometimes she does on the Tell All Day and sometimes she’s busy with a hot date or a therapy class or a fitting for a new uniform but today she wants to cheer…..Suzie?

Guernsey is a type of cow
But also a place you tell me now?
Alright thanks I learned something new
Thanks Miss Jackie – this cheer’s for you!
I also cheer for Csilla and Phenny
They both get badges worth more than a penny!
Sell them on eBay and make a buck
Then come back next week again and try your luck!
Now excuse me please cuz I’ve gotta go
My boyfriends’ taking me to the early show
See you next week and be on time
To be late is a TEASER CRIME!

Thanks Suzie…..you outdid yourself today………………..!!!

Assistant Professor Teddy and I hope that you enjoy Tuesday Teasers……….we sure do.    If you’d like to proclaim your fondness for my Teaser challenges every week, you can feel free to snatch this badge for your blog sidebar or WHATEVER……………….and we will look for you next week!!!

Class Dismissed!  

Hugs, Angel Prof Sammy and Teddy too

P.S.

Happy Flag Day…..long may she wave

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Time for Class!

Remember today we are lucky enough to have pizza being delivered for pre-recess pizza by our Cafeteria Snoopervise Mrs. Dingleberry.    If there’s any funny business in class, well, we may have to ask her to take those back to the cafeteria and serve them to some students who are BEHAVING in their classroom today!    OK?

First thing to do is COMMENT on this post – go on – you better snap to it – we won’t stop class for long and you don’t want to miss anything BUT if you are first to comment today on this post you win a badge!

Now that’s done – we’ll let you know who was the FIRST COMMENTER today when we do the TELL ALL tomorrow……………..maybe you will win the badge if you were ALERT and AWAKE when we went live this morning!

Today we have a GUEST TEASER………………..and in order to win, you will need to tell me where the photo we’ll show you was taken………….what town/city/village and what state (if in USA) or country (if not in USA) you see in the photo.   Easy right?   You just have to study the photo and see what you can determine then go out on a limb and GUESS.     If you win, here’s what you will get:

Cool huh?   Even if you aren’t the FIRST to guess correctly we have other badges so you could win one of those……………..we’ll show you what’s up for grabs tomorrow.    Meanwhile, shall we see if Suzie is ready to bring in a breath of fresh air and happiness to start things off????

Are you talking about “OUR” Suzie? Fresh air and happiness?????

Yes, Suzie is a “trial” sometimes but overall she give you a rousing cheer and a giggle or two right?   Right!    Suzie???

Welcome to the class
Where you get a dose of sass
I get your blood a-boilin’
While your brains begin a’toilin’
Now concentrate and examine
While the school band does some jammin’
If you can figure it out
Then you won’t have to pout!
Pizza’s about to be eaten
Don’t let yourselves be beaten!
Make a guess and WIN
And maybe Sarge will grin!

Well done Suzie………as for Sarge grinning – well – that may not happen – he’s been practicing being grumpy for a very long time.    We just happened to find this photo in an old yearbook here at school of a younger (and hairy) Sarge and as you can see he’s NEVER been a SMILER!

EEEEK…………………….well, let’s bring in our Security Guard guy with today’s photo and get it up on the blackboard so you can start trying to make Sarge grin (even though I think it’s hopeless).

I’ve got the photo here Professor Sam!

 

Just a moment…..our blackboard cleaner is getting things cleaned up first!

OK gang – WHERE was this photo taken?????????????   Remember the rules!

Now before we dismiss class for recess, I’ll help Mrs. Dingleberry get the pizzas set up in the back of the room for you all to enjoy………………we have smoothies too…………..!

Oh these pizzas smell delicious Mrs. Dingleberry!  

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

AND of course we have fruit smoothies so please kids – help yourselves then go outside and work it all off in the playground – be nice – no pushing – there’s plenty for EVERYONE!!!!!!

 

Teddy and I will see you back here in class tomorrow!  

We’ll see who wins and who gets the GREENIES!  

GOOD LUCK!

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

School Is In Session!

Time to settle into your school desk seats so we can talk about tomorrow’s GEOGRAPHY TEST.    You know that’s what it’s all about right?    Trying to use your knowledge of people, places, and things – AND a healthy dose of good luck – to get the Tuesday Teaser right…..guess CORRECTLY where the photo was taken.    Not an easy task some Tuesdays but one that’s FUN and one that challenges your BRAINS and keeps you ALERT!    Right students???

Yes Sir Professor!!

So shall we begin?    We have a GUEST TEASER again for tomorrow – that’s a photo of course that someone we know has submitted and we hope you have some fun figuring this one out as always.   How it will work is as always……………when you get here tomorrow to class, you need to COMMENT on the blog because you just might be the FIRST to do that and if you are, you get a special badge to show off!

Then you can start studying the photo that we show…………..and of course if you guess and are RIGHT – and are FIRST to be RIGHT you get a special badge but even if you aren’t FIRST but you guess correctly you will win a badge so that’s pretty cool right?    If you guess incorrectly you still get one of our famous GREENIES to show off……….you can’t go wrong!

Suzie wanted to do a cheer for you since she’s our official Teaser Class Cheerleader – she hopes it fires you up for tomorrow………and knowing Suzie, there will be fire because she’s HOT HOT HOT when she cheers!

Tuesday Tuesday comin’ tomorrow
Time for giggles not time for sorrow
Unless you guess and you’re not right
Then you probably won’t sleep tomorrow night
Don’t disappoint me and skip the class
Cuz if you do, I’ll kick your lunchbox…….(tee hee)

Thanks Suzie…………..I do think you got everyone well prepared mentally for tomorrow………….you never let us down!

Tomorrow in class it’s PIZZA DAY………….so after we show you the Teaser photos and we are ready to go out to the playground for recess, Mrs. Dingleberry, our Cafeteria Supervisor, will wheel in some pizzas for you to snack on!

Yep – she’s a little bit scary but she makes a dy-no-mite pizza!!!!

Anybody have any questions?

Yes Bobby?????

You forgot to tell everyone that the Teaser post pops up at a different time than your other posts Professor Sammy…….you always tell everyone that!

Why yes Tommy you’re right – I clearly forgot to mention that and I thank you for pointing that out………………..the post will be at a SPECIAL time tomorrow so everyone should sleep by their computers or ipads or iphones or WHATEVER tonight so when we pop into the inbox, you’ll be FIRST here!

My able Assistant Professor Teddy and I will see you tomorrow!

Angel Professor Sammy
