Early Fall Bacon Harvest!

Standard

 

Welcome to Angel Sam and Ted’s

Fall Bacon Harvest!

Welcome friends and neighbors – come on in and see what we’ve been up to since early this morning here in the Greenhouse……….I guess you got here by following the road I told you about……sure is a pretty drive this time of year!

Down the long dirt road….

Keep going until it turns sharp right…..

And you’re HERE!!

We’ve got a whole lot of friends here today helping……….as you can plainly see we’ve got a bumper crop this season and Teddy and I are very excited about it.   Once we get all the hard work done, we’ll rest up and enjoy some great food and drink to thank you for helping us out.   

To help keep everyone hydrated and comfy, you’ll see our friends Madi and Katie Isabella traveling around the greenhouse and the grounds and fields with goodies so just flag them down and help yourselves!

Thanks Katie!

Totally FAB Madi!

As you can see if you walk around, lots of our friends are already “bringing in the bacon” !!!

My buddy and pal Raz with a wheelbarrow full of bacon……

Our good pals, Sundae and Gypsy – now that’s a PILE OF BACON!

Marvelous Marv made a BACON sign and Sammy Pilch is helping him haul in the harvest!

Madi and Katie are not only our “snack queens” but they are ALSO helping with the harvest!

 

Woo Hoo!!!!!!

Well they sure went to work quickly – nice that they brought along some friends too!!

Our super duper pals Mauricio, Cooper Murphy AND Mauricio’s wife Allie are working hard……….

We even have our pal Mr. Squirrel – love his hat with Mitzi Bimbocorn’s logo!

When you’re ready for a break – just have a seat under an umbrella and rest up!

Just in case you forgot how the whole bacon greenhouse thing got started, my buddy and pal Mauricio gave me some MAGIC seeds – Bacon seeds – the variety is “CRISPY” and man oh man is it delicious.    This is our second harvest and we intend to “KEEP ON PLANTING” !!

Let’s go out in the field and see who’s working out there shall we?

We got more tractor help!   Bear (the golden) and Sammy talked their Dad into joining in the harvest!!

Lookin’ good Sam!   You’ve been a BIG HELP – you are a great “digger” !!

How’s things out there Speedy????

Mr. Jack Freckles has his special Bacon Harvest Hat on and a load of bacon…….just a little AWKWARD bringing the bacon by the pigs!  Tee Hee

Wow Charles – you picked the bacon from that whole side of the greenhouse!!!!!

Einstein did you try a sample to make sure it’s nice and ripe???

Angel Sammy was happy to see his dear friend Angel Flynn made it down from his cloud to help out today too!!

Attention Harvesters!   Time For the Party!

Come on over to the picnic area everyone – let’s EAT!   Thank you for your HARD WORK – you are REAL friends to help Teddy and me out with the harvest – we want you to relax now and enjoy some BACON and other goodies with us!

Sheeeee Haaaaw!!!!

Bring on the food!

AND plenty to drink too!!

What a Day!  Teddy and I have some gifts for you:

A package of our special bacon!

AND, if you see our greenhouse snoopervisor, she will present you with one of our “starter plants” so you can begin your OWN bacon garden at home!

What a perfect day it’s been…

Thank you friends…..drive carefully on the way home!

SHOPPING and Filling-In!

Standard

Another Two For One Day!

We have “Shopping Around the World” with Bacon of PIGLOVE today and we also have “Friendly Fill-In Friday” with McGuffys’ Reader and 15andMeowing.    Which one should we do first?   I say:

Let’s fill in our sentences then we’ll go shopping…….this is a fun hop co-hosted by the above two blogger buddies and boy is it FUN.   They give us sentences, and we fill in the blanks and because it’s a HOP we get to HOP around and find out stuff about all our friends because of how they filled in the blanks!     If you click the badge above, you will be transported to McGuffy’s where you can join in the fun with the LINKY tool !

I’m letting Mom answer again this week – I’ve been very generous I think letting her STAR on Fridays but in actuality, most of the time the sentences are more “human friendly” than Teddy friendly.   So let’s see what Mom has to say shall we?   Her filled in stuff is in BLUE.

1. I am far too old to wear the tight jeans that I love to wear but I say “SO WHAT”! 

  1. To save money, I don’t often buy things for the house – I keep towels for instance until you can almost SEE through them (slight exaggeration!) but I kind of figure as long as things WORK, I won’t replace them.   I certainly haven’t ALWAYS been like that though – trust me!
  2. LIFE matter(s).
  3.  The leaves coming down makes me think I don’t have much longer to wait for fires in the fireplace.

 

OK Mom – good job.    Our thanks go to Annie of McGuffy’s and Ellen of 15andMeowing for this fun weekly Hop.

NOW for our next half of the blog today!

Shopping Around The World

This one is super fun too because it’s ALWAYS interesting to get more recipes but it’s even MORE interesting to see what people pay for the stuff they use to MAKE their chosen food item.   That FOOD ITEM this month is DESSERTS!

This probably sounds crazy but my Mom and Dad almost ALWAYS eat dessert when they go out to dinner but they hardly EVER have dessert at home.   Notice I said “hardly ever” because Mom DOES make dessert from time to time.   Here’s an EASY one and because my Mom is a NUT for coconut (hahaha) she loves these!

CHOCOLATE AND ALMOND MACAROONS

INGREDIENTS AND PRICES:

3/4 cup condensed milk ($1.99 for 14 oz. container)

1  14-oz package sweet flaked coconut (two packages of 7 oz. – each package $1.84)

1/4 to 1/2 Teaspoon almond extract ($4.99 for two oz.)

1/8 Teaspoon salt (we had some)

24 whole unblanched almonds ($8.99 for 16 oz. package)

1/2 cup dark chocolate morsels ($3.49 for 10 oz. package)

 

DIRECTIONS:

Stir first four ingredients together…………..and drop dough by tablespoons on to parchment paper lined baking sheet (if you grease the spoon a little it will drop out easier!).   Push an almond into the top of each macaroon.   Bake in 350 degree oven for 15-17 minutes until golden brown.   Remove and let cool.

Microwave 1/2 cup chocolate morsels on high for a minute and 15 seconds………..stir well……..when cooled off, dump in a freezer bag and cut a hole in one corner so you can drizzle chocolate on the macaroons!

EASY PEASY and do I have to tell you how delish these are?   Well, I wouldn’t know myself of course but my Mom absolutely ADORES them.

If you have a DESSERT recipe to share today – make sure and link it up to Bacon’s blog at PIGLOVE so he can drool over your recipes but also so his Mom can collect all the recipes and make new snacks for Bacon’s Dad!

 

THERE YOU HAVE IT!    Friendly Fill-Ins and Shopping Around The World

See you tomorrow at the BACON HARVEST on my blog.   Sheeeeeeeeeee-haaaaw we’re gonna have a good time!

WATCH OUT – COMIN’ THROUGH!!!

Hugs, Teddy (and Angel Sammy too!)

 

Remember Me, Thankful, and Poetry Day

Standard

So Busy This Thursday!   

Today we have Thankful Thursday with Brian, Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday, and the MOST special remembrance today which is “REMEMBER ME THURSDAY”…….. a day we set aside every single year to remember all the sweet pets who are waiting to be rescued and have a chance at having and enjoying for their rest of their lives a true FOREVER HOME.    Shelters are full of sweet animals who have been taken to shelters be they no-kill or kill and who wait and hope that someone will give them security – sometimes for the FIRST TIME in their lives and sometimes because they have sweet memories of “home” in the past and wish for it again.     There are a million videos honoring this day but one of the most poignant ones is below – please take a couple of minutes to watch it.    It touches your heart and soul…………..

Actually today’s Remember Me Thursday is a great way to move right into THANKFUL THURSDAY at Brian’s!    I so easily could be one of those waiting in a shelter for my FOREVER but happily, my Mom and Dad came to the shelter last February and took me home where I have enjoyed my truly FOREVER……just as Angel Sammy did.    I am thankful that I am not languishing in a cage at the shelter but so many are and they need YOU to save them.      If you click the badge below, you will be transported to Brian’s blog and you can hook up and join in the THANKFUL blog hop he hosts every week!    THANKS Brian for being our host!

The last bit of our 3-way post today is my big brother Angel Sammy’s THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAY post – which, as you know – he transmits to me via his wireless connection on his computer at the Rainbow Bridge every week.    I know he’s getting excited this week because he will be transporting down here for our Saturday post this week which is our BACON DAY and this Saturday we’re having a BACON HARVEST on our blog!   Somehow I doubt that’s what he wrote his poem about this week though.   This week’s letter of the alphabet is “P”……he gave us all four prompt words but of course we can write about ANYTHING starting with the letter “P” !

Here’s Angel Sammy’s transmission!

♥♥♥♥

Hello Buddies and Pals!!   It’s MY poetry challenge day!

Yes, every Thursday I make an appearance to share the poem I’ve written for my ALPHABET POETRY CHALLENGE.    We are fast working our way through the alphabet and already at the letter “P” so I am wondering what you came up with to celebrate the letter “P” this week.    The prompts I gave you to help you come up with something last week were:

(1) Princess (2) Poet (3) Promise (4) Party

You can write about any “P” thing in your poem though.    I actually DID choose one of the prompts that I gave to you – mainly because I wanted to write about today’s REMEMBER ME THURSDAY occasion which is something near and dear to my own heart as I was rescued from a shelter myself by my Mom and Dad who made a PROMISE to me when I went home with them!

“Promise”

By Sammy Kimmell, Sept. 28, 2017

I was just a wee kitten in a tiny wire cage

Found under a house all alone – nobody home

That day my life began on a fresh new page

I would be safe and happy with no need to roam.

Abandoned by my cat MOM?   We would never know

Brought to the shelter by someone – a passer by

I looked out the bars waiting for someone to show

The shelter was quiet and some animals would cry

A man and a lady came there one cold February day

Would they see me?   My cage was way way up high

I had a small ball with a bell – with it I would play

The lady heard it, looked up and I caught her eye!

I stuck my paw out – extra toes she could see

“It’s a polydactyl!” she said to the man by her side

He touched my paw and said “Hi” very tenderly

Out of the cage I was brought and handed to the man

I was smart, I was cute, and I licked his face

“This is the one” she said, I would smile if I can…..

They signed papers and soon we were out of that place!

………..AND WE ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER…………

Funny how 17 years AFTER my Mom and Dad adopted me they found themselves back at that same shelter, in the same month, and found another little ginger boy to take home – my little brother Teddy.    I wish I could have stayed there to meet him………..but my time came to leave in December, 2016 just two months before he found his FOREVER with my Mom and Dad.     

Remember Me Thursday is near and dear to my heart and to his as well as my Mom and Dad…………..my Mom cries BIG tears for all those animals in shelters who wait and wait and sometimes never get their homes.     Teddy and I were lucky…………….and we know it………………

Next week we will celebrate the letter “Q” which is a tricky letter isn’t it?!     Well, I’m giving you four prompt words to think about but you can write ANYTHING you want to with the letter “Q” so feel free to do that………..THEN, come here and post the link to your poem so we can all read it OR if you want to, post your poem in my comments OK?    I love poetry and please don’t say “I don’t know how to write a poem” because you CAN………..poetry is from the heart and doesn’t even have to rhyme!    OK?  

(1) Quiet (2) Quarrel (3) Q-Tip (4) Quack

There you are – a little help if you need it.     I hope you will have a great week and I hope that you will remember TODAY is the last day you can send in a photo of YOU in your Bacon Harvest Outfit so we can put you in our Saturday BACON HARVEST PARTY post!     We had a ball last harvest and hope you’ll be with us for this one.    I’m flying down from my cloud for the day.   Can’t wait to see you there!    Email your photo to my Mom ASAP!!

I Love You All………..Angel Sammy

♥♥♥♥

Thanks Angel Sammy!    As always, I love your poem because YOUR story is exactly MY story.    Same shelter, 17 years apart and two baby gingers found their FOREVER in the same home.   If you haven’t looked at the video link we posted above, please do.    This is a very special day to REMEMBER………….

Hugs, Teddy

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Good Morning Students – Geography Class is in session!

(frantically waving)

Yes Bobby??????

Nothing Professor – I was trying to catch a fly in my paw…….sorry!

Alrighty then Bobby.   Guess we’ll move on to letting everyone know the STORY OF OUR FIRST COMMENTER from yesterday.    We in fact, had a bumper crop of FIRST COMMENTERS – we broke our 4-way with a 5-way winning group yesterday!    Within the first sixty seconds, we had FIVE comments………..WOW……………gonna be hard to break that record (although we thought that when we had four!)……………who were the winners?????

Annie from McGuffy’s Reader

Csilla from Kolytyi

Melissa, Oliver & Calvin

Carol from CarolMaeWY

Clowie from Clowie’s Corner

We ALL were FIRST COMMENTERS on the Teaser of 9/26/17: McGuffys, Kolytyi, Oliver & Calvin, Carol and Clowie!!

All of you get to copy the badge above,  and have it for your VERY OWN – we just put all winner names on ONE badge instead of posting five separate badges!   Clever of us huh???????

OK!  We shall move on.    Let’s talk about the Teaser photo in yesterday’s post so you can find out whether you win something or not!    I know you’re DYING to find out and since we don’t have to take time to tell you who the Guest Teaser was (since it’s Mom’s photo!), we can move right on to showing you the photo from yesterday again.

NO, it’s not Forrest Gump on that bench, it’s my DAD!   

To tell you about this photo, Mom and I thought it might be fun to give you a link to follow to the FIRST post Mom did with a photo of this location she and my Dad visited – just read the blog post and you will find out WHERE she took it!!    Ready?????    CLICK HERE – then come back!     YES (Miss Jackie you thought it was familiar!)  back in 2012 Mom did a post about this place……you will recognize that building on the other side of the square in the photo on the old blog…………..Obviously my poor old Dad needs some lessons in posing for a photo because many of you were right – he DOES look like Forrest Gump (Mom says Forrest GRUMP) in the photo.    HAHAHAHA

Shall we tell you WHO the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was ?    Oh yes – lets!    It was someone who was also a FIRST COMMENTER…………it was Miss Carol from CarolMaeWY!!!    This is for you Miss Carol and you don’t have to share it with ANYONE!

For Teaser of 9/26/17

SEVERAL (and I do mean SEVERAL) others guessed this photo correctly and if you guessed Savannah, this is yours!!

For Teaser of 9/26/17

Of course if you guessed incorrectly – you still win something – one of our world famous GREENIES!!

For Teaser of 9/26/17

Congrats Winners AND Losers!!

Suzie will have her work cut out for her today with her cheer.   Her tradition lately has been to do a cheer using the names of all the winners……….usually that’s easy peasy for someone of her considerable cheering talents but we have a crop of five first commenters and one first commenter and that is a lot of names………Go Suzie Go!

YOU CAN DO IT SUZIE!

Oh my achin’ back!
I’ll have a heart attack!
SIX names to put in the cheer?
I’m gonna need a beer!
First Commenters there were FIVE
Busier than a bee hive!
Clowie, McGuffy’s. Oliver/Calvin, Csilla, and Carol
You five sure had me over a barrel!
I took the easy way out
So please don’t have a pout!
Our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was a two-time winner
Someone give this girl a free dinner!
Carol ALSO guessed it was Savannah –
Her free dinner will be a BANANA!
You can’t expect me to be BRIGHT
I had a hot date last night
Cheering for winners is TOUGH
Especially if you feel ROUGH!!!

Well Suzie that was one major cheer with a bazillion verses and a lot of names and some MARGINAL rhyming but what’s a girl to do right?    I think you did very well.    Let’s hear it for our Cheerleader!!!

HIPPPP HIPPPPPP HOOOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tune in next Tuesday for another exciting Geography class with your teaching team of:

The TWO Dynamic Professors!!!

Tomorrow is the DEADLINE to submit your photo if you want to be included in our BACON HARVEST blog post on Saturday – send your photos in your best HARVEST clothing to me and Mom via email…………..wear something comfy and come ready to work and party afterwards!!!   It will be our Saturday BACON post this week.

WATCH OUT – COMIN’ THROUGH!!!  BACON HARVEST TIME!

FINAL REMINDER!

Standard

That’s right – if you “cruise” you “lose” because

THIS FRIDAY (29th) is SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD

We are guest hosting the “Shopping” post this month and have given you SEVERAL REMINDERS but you can’t have too many – right?   Right!    So remember, share your recipe for your favorite (or one of your favorites anyway) DESSERT.    Something yummy – gooey – high calorie – terribly sinful – WHATEVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT…………

Not only do we want the recipe (and maybe a photo of your masterpiece??) but we want to know what you PAID at your grocery store for the ingredients.    None of our business?  Maybe not but we like to see what everyone ELSE is paying for the same stuff WE buy in our neck of the woods.   Sometimes it’s rather ASTOUNDING the difference in costs!!

SO – link your post for “SHOPPING” up with Bacon’s blog – he’s in charge of things when it comes to shopping…………………click the badge above to visit him.    His parents have finally returned from their EPIC journey to (wait for it………………….) Australia for vacation!     Oh and it was fun being your guest hosts the past two months………Thanks Bacon for letting us help out!

SEE YOU ON FRIDAY FOR DESSERT TIME!!!

Yeah we like fried food too but dessert is a close second!

Hugs, Angel Sammy and Teddy too

Tuesday Teaser

DING DONG – SCHOOL IS CALLING!

Ye Olde School Bell Is Ringing!

Professors Sam and Ted are about to enter the classroom!

GOOD MORNING TEACHERS!

Good Morning Professors!

We’re ready to Tease Professors!

Good Morning Students………………..please remember, the first order of business is for you to COMMENT ON THIS BLOG because you might be FIRST and if you are FIRST to comment, you win this:

Second order of business is for you to get ready to put your brains in gear……….because we’ll be showing you our Teaser Photo Challenge in just a bit……………..!!

Please remember, when you’re guessing you have to tell what town/village or city as well as what state (if USA) or country (if not USA) the photo was taken in OK?   OK!     You also should NOT use any kind of online help figuring it out – please don’t use GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH or any other way to make your guess – just use your BRAINS!!!!!

I can also tell you that Miss Dingleberry has a snack for all of us before we take a recess break in a bit……………..I know that will get your attention right?

Well we don’t know if she’s made cookies or something else!

Shall we begin?    First up, we will ask our official Teaser Cheerleader to get you MOTIVATED – Suzie does a good job of motivation don’t you think?   Suzie – it’s all yours!

Hi Profs – before I do my cheer, I thought you’d like to know I invited that dog that you had as a substitute when I was gone. I thought she’d like another chance at cheering – you know me – always thinking of others…….(cough cough)

BUT I GO FIRST OF COURSE!
Today we’ve got a goodie
It’s HOT so you don’t need your hoodie
Take a peek and give a look
Stop studying your geography book!
You’d better not be a cheater
Or I’ll smack your little seater!
Just always do your best
Be BOLDER than the rest
You might be the first right guesser
Freak out our honorable professors!

ALRIGHT DOG – YOUR TURN!!!

BARK BARK BARK
ARF ARF ARF
AROOOOOOOOOOO
AROOOOOOOOOOO
BARK ARF BARK !

WAIT A MINUTE – THAT’S THE SAME CHEER YOU DID LAST TIME THAT WAS A REAL DUD!  

I THOUGHT YOU’D BEEN TO CHEER SCHOOL GIRL!!!!!

Now Suzie be nice…….I’m sure she did her best………purrrhaps you should give her private cheering lessons……………………………………….or not.

Maybe we’d better move on – will our Silver Briefcase/Security Guard please bring in today’s Teaser Photo???????

Here’s this week’s photo Professor!

WHERE OH WHERE WAS THIS PHOTO SNAPPED??????????

Here’s what’s up for grabs today in the BADGE REWARD department!    If you are the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, you will win this:

If you are RIGHT but not the FIRST one to be right, you win this:

If you are WRONG – you really just plain guessed incorrectly this week, you win this:

So there you have it……………….today’s challenge and now it’s UP TO YOU TO MEET THE CHALLENGE!!!!!!

If your brains ache after hearing Suzie and her dog buddy cheer AND seeing today’s photo and having to THINK about it, well, Teddy and I are sorry about that…………..BUT we will let you have Recess now so that should cheer you up a bit and if THAT doesn’t do it, maybe Miss Dingleberry’s snack today will………….

I have all the fixings for a fabulous ICE CREAM SUNDAE…….no shoving or screaming or butting in line…..OR ELSE!

Thanks Miss D!    This ought to make for some happy tummies around here!!

OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY!!

Good Luck Students!

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

It’s Monday!   Time to PREPARE to Tease!

Come on inside the schoolroom boys and girls – it’s time to settle down!

Yep – put those caps on or you may wind up like this guy in the corner!!!

This week we are using one of my Mom and Dad’s photos…………….and it’s my Dad you see in the photo.    I suppose you can GUESS who is taking the picture?    Anyway, you will see it tomorrow and figure it out in no time I’m sure.   I want to tell you the TEASER rules first though!

  1. We ask everyone NOT to use any “help” with figuring out WHERE the photo was taken – i.e., GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH or something along those lines.   If you don’t use any “help” then everyone is on the same playing field – just study the photo and make your best guess using your eyeballs, not some computer program!!
  2. You must guess the TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE as well as the STATE (if USA) or COUNTRY (if not USA) where the photo was taken………Yep – we want the whole thing!!

So now you know the rules – but to really FIRE YOU up and prepare you for tomorrow, SuzieQ would like to grab your ears and fill them with poetry to inspire you for tomorrow’s Teaser………are you ready for her???   Some say that SuzieQ can best be described as “an acquired taste”……….hahaha

Ricky Ticky Tizzy
Cheering makes me dizzy
But I’ll do my best to inspire
While in my uniform I perspire
This cheer will be a quickie
It’s too darn hot and sticky
Leaping around in the heat
Gives me blisters on my feet
Show up in class in the morning
THIS IS YOUR OFFICIAL WARNING
Miss Dingleberry is cookin’
ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME GOOD LOOKIN’ ??????

Alright Suzie – I’m sure everyone will be here without fail.   Just remember that class will be at a SURPRISE time tomorrow so have one ear tuned to the computer/phone, etc. for the arrival of the TEASER!    First one to COMMENT tomorrow gets this to display on their blog/page, etc. – LUCKY DUCKY!

If there’s more than one FIRST COMMENTER in the first 60 seconds we are live, everyone who comments in that minute gets a badge!  WOOT!     Then we have other badges you might win but I’ll tell you in class tomorrow about THOSE!

Now before you are excused go to out to the playground for recess, the school principal asked me to make a couple of announcements!

Announcements are scary…..

This Friday, September 29th we are guest hosting Bacon’s SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD post………………you will still link to his blog so his Mom can collect the recipes BUT we are hosting so we are reminding today!  Got it?    What are we doing this month for SHOPPING?    Well it happens to be one of my (and my Mom’s) favorite things in the world!!!

DESSERT  !!!!!

Yep – what’s another fabulous dessert creation you make that you just know the rest of us mere mortals would love to know how you make it – AND we also want to know what you PAID for all the ingredients in the recipe!   That’s the point of SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD – not just to get some good recipes but to find out what YOU are paying for the stuff that we might be paying more or less for.    WE WANNA KNOW…….WHY?   Because we are NOSY!      You will link your post to PIGLOVE.   Are we clear?   Yep?  Good!

SECOND Announcement is that this coming Saturday, September 30th Teddy and I are co-hosting the BACON HARVEST – it’s ready for picking and YOU can join in the fun if you want to – dress up in your finest “harvest wear” and send us your photo.    We’ll include you in the fun.    I’m going to repost the photos of the greenhouse, some clothes if you need them and some interior shots of the bacon crop and you can photoshop yourselves silly and send us the pix for the BLOG POST here on Saturday!   COOL?  Yeah I think so too!!!!

Our greenhouse from the outside

Bacon in bloom!

Bacon plants far as the eye can see!!!!!

After Harvesting we’ll have FOOD (including bacon of course)

SO, just email me your photos all gussied up in your harvest-wear and in a scene if you wish from above or one you find on your own – and we will include you in the fun!   OKEE DOKEE?   Questions?  Just leave them in comments…….DEADLINE TO SUBMIT PHOTOS IS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28th!!!

Sunday Selfie Hop

Standard

I’m ready to hop – are you?  

Every Sunday we join the fabulous SELFIE HOP at Kitties Blue’s blog – The Cat On My Head – it’s tons of fun……..you simply MUST join in.   If you click their badge above you can go there and LINK up then you’ll be a HOPPER with the rest of us!

My Mom did her usual number jazzing me up this Sunday – she used Lunapic – a different effect though that she’s not used before called “STORYTIME”……..obviously her story was not that interesting because I seem to have dropped off while she was telling it!   Oh well………..at least I’m comfy in Dad’s office chair right?

She sure does love that site…………..and I guess as long as she makes me look adorable I don’t care if she uses it over and over and over…………I think it’s way cool though how it made me look all soft and squishy and turned Dad’s black leather chair into something that almost looks like SNAKESKIN.

Anyway, that’s it for this week’s Selfie……………….!    Hope to see you hopping around the blogosphere today!

Oh yes – before I forget – a reminder of yesterday’s post which told you that I’m having the BACON HARVEST at the greenhouse here NEXT SATURDAY!    That’s right – if you remember last year we had a ball – we worked hard harvesting our bacon crop but then we are until we couldn’t stuff in any more food and had a ton of fun.    If you want to be here – please email me your photo in your best HARVEST GEAR (!) via email in .jpg format……….you can wear whatever you like, but I gave you some ideas yesterday so feel free to use them!     CLICK HERE FOR YESTERDAY’S POST WITH PHOTOS AND INFO ON THE HARVEST.

If you are unable to photo edit, you can send my Mom a photo and we’ll fix you up……..!

See you tomorrow for Pre-Tease Monday!

Love, Teddy

Bacon Greenhouse Update

Happy Bacon Saturday!  

I thought I’d better give you the scoop on what’s going on in the Bacon Greenhouse over this past summer………….we had a great crop of bacon seedlings growing and we are a week away from HARVEST time.    Our usual Greenhouse Crew has been working hard maintaining, fertilizing, raking, hoeing, weeding and in general keeping the place looking fabulous as always.    Here are some photos I took so I can share them with you!!

Hello!   Today we Hop on board the FILL-IN blog hop co-hosted by McGuffys’ Reader and 15andMeowing to share some more STUFF about us here in my house!   Everybody gets to “dish” their thoughts on things in this Hop – filling in sentences tells everyone a lot of things about you that’s for sure!    If you click the badge above, you will go to McGuffy’s where you can join in the fun by using the LINKY tool !

Every week each of the hosts gives us TWO sentences each…………………and below are this week’s challenges.   I decided to be a sweetie and let my Mom fill-in these.   I could have hogged the spotlight but I blog all the time and she hardly has a chance to do anything without MY snoopervision!    Tee Hee     Mom’s fill-ins are in GREEN.

1. I would never be friends with someone who HATES animals – they wouldn’t be “my kind of person”!

2. I will never refuse any treatment that my vet recommends for Teddy – I totally trust our vet and know that he truly LOVES his patients.

3. I have never been to a restaurant for Christmas dinner because I always love making my own , but it might be fun to dress up and go to a fancy restaurant just once and let THEM do the work!!.

4. When it comes to   any cat I’ve ever had   , I loved them with all my heart from day one until I kissed them goodbye – such special little children they are.
Gosh Mom – you mean you think I’m super special?    Well that’s nice cuz I think you are too!!    You showed me how to do a proper somersault after all !

(during my first week in my new home!)

We have a special spot in our heart today for our friends at FRIENDS FUREVER blog – Miss Sharon and her kitties Raz and Allie – as Mr. Bill’s funeral is today.    He was a brave man who fought to stay with his family, accomplished so very much in his life, and adored his pets.   We are so sad for Miss Sharon but we are sending our love, our strength and hugs because we know that one day, they will all be together again.   You can visit their blog by clicking HERE. 

Now if you’ll excuse me,

I’m going to see if I can talk Mom into

taking me outside for a walk!  

Know what my favorite thing to do out there is?   Roll around in the dirt!  

Mom calls me her little red Pig.  

Good thing I’m cute – I get away with so much stuff!!!!
