Here we are – and we just finished TASTE TESTING today’s snack…..can you guess what it is????  You’ll just have to WAIT!

Ready for the scoop about the Teaser?

We are!   Yep – we sure are.    All students please take a seat and we will begin!

I’m in the back of the room Professors and looks to me like everyone is SITTING and READY!

Bobby’s right!

OK let’s talk TEASER then.    Yesterday we went live and WHAMMO in came the FIRST COMMENT – then another FIRST COMMENT – so we did have TWO winners of the FIRST COMMENT AWARD within the same 60 seconds yesterday – WHO?

Timmy Tomcat 

AND

McGuffy’s Reader

Congratulations!

YAY FIRSTIES!!

You EACH get one of these fabulous badges to do with as you wish………………proclaim youselves FIRSTIES to the world, or hide it away in a closet somewhere!!

For Timmy of Timmy Tomcat and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader for being FIRST COMMENTERS on Teaser of Jan. 30, 2018!

Now shall we tell you WHO our Guest Teaser was then show you the Teaser again and give you the SCOOP?   Oh lets!!     Our GUEST TEASER was Miss Ingrid of PIPOandMINKOandFRECKLESWOOFS!!!    She sent this photo in of Battle Creek, Michigan where she lives and if that building in the WAY FAR back of the photo looks familiar it’s because that building itself was the Teaser photo from a while back!    It was a doozy too.    THANK YOU MISS INGRID!    This badge is for you!

Thanks to Miss Ingrid for the fabulous Teaser photo of January 30, 2018 !

Here’s the photo one more time:

Who was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER?    Well it was none other than one of our FIRST COMMENTERS – our buddy and pal Timmy from Timmy Tomcat!

WAY TO GO TIMMY – TWO BADGES IN ONE DAY!!!

For Timmy of Timmy Tomcat for being FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of Jan. 30, 2018

Know what else?   There were SEVERAL more of you who guessed right……….YES – so we have some of the RIGHT GUESSER BUT NOT FIRST badges to hand out and if you were one of the lucky ones, please help yourself to a copy of this badge below!

Well I was RIGHT with my guess but I wasn’t FIRST RIGHT on the Teaser of Jan. 30, 2018!

Those of you who gave it a valiant effort and guessed but were wrong, get a 2018 GREENIE of your VERY own!

Uhoh….I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of Jan. 30, 2018!

Lots of badges awarded – that means a bunch of you studied hard and got it this week.   A special congratulations to our buddy Timmy because HE got TWO badges!    Also, make sure and visit his blog today HERE because his brother Buddy Budd is celebrating his 18th birthday so stop by and give him a birthday greeting!

Ready for “THE GIRLS” ??????

Bazinga, Bazonga, Bazoto,
Let’s hop in our Desoto
We’ll ride around the school
And break the golden rule!
Or maybe we should just cheer
For the winners who are here?
First Commenters we had TWO
Annie and Timmy you both got a clue!
First Right Guesser was Timmy AGAIN!
Two badges you got two big WINS!
We thought this Teaser was really “kickin’ “
But not as good as Miss D’s fried chicken!!!

You are right girls – today Miss Dingleberry is going to load us up with a GREASE-FEST out of her FRIED FOOD TENT.    Oh boy………that will warm us up from the inside out (or send us to the rest room maybe).

uhoh…..I heard that bathroom comment – I’d better finish up in the restroom ASAP!

I’ll leave some extra toilet paper!

Enjoy your snack students………………then you can go outside for recess because while it’s a little breezy and slightly cold-ish the sun is out and you can exercise on the playground equipment!    We will see you NEXT Monday for PRE-TEASE!

WHEEE!   **burp** – maybe we should take it easy out here after that meal…….


I foresee some issues beyond burping on the playground today!

 

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

It’s a-snowin’ at Ding Dong School today!

Alright you kids – inside – now!   Before you get the FLU!  Don’t forget to COMMENT before you take a seat though – if you’re FIRST you’ll get a badge from the Professors.

ICK on the SICKS!

Mom makes me wash my hands every 5 minutes to keep away the germs!

OK class – settle down – that cold out in the playground got you fired up didn’t it!!

Professors I checked everyone for fevers, sore throats, etc. and sent one student home to bed!

I HAZ THE ICKS!

Thank you Doctor KATZ, I appreciate you trying to keep us relatively GERM-FREE.     Now shall we continue with the reason we’re here this morning?    We have a TEASER photo for you and we have this feeling that you won’t have a clue.   We even blocked out one sign because it MIGHT have had a clue……..if there are other clues we sure don’t see them so without further ado, what say we give you the RULES for today then show you the photo????

Groovy

So just do your best without the help of some computer program to get you there……………it’s more REWARDING anyway!   Speaking of rewards, here’s what’s on tap for all winners and you’ll find out who THEY are tomorrow!

Today’s photo is from a TEASER FAN so it’s a GUEST TEASER and we’ll tell you WHO when we tell you WHERE the photo was taken tomorrow in class.     The cheerleaders are BACK today and will cheer you all on after we show you the photo…………Mr. Security Guard – we are READY!

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted

Where could this be?????????????????   You may agonize over it as much as you like then give us your GUESS in comments.   Shall we see what our fabulous cheerleaders have in store for us today?

That Bobby dude was cute
In his little cheering suit
We might let him join us girls
To give the guy a whirl!
But that is just a “maybe”
Let’s get to the Teaser baby!
It seems like it’s too hard
Like giving you the JOKER card
We wish you luck my friends
As your agonizing BEGINS!

Thanks ladies…………..I’m sure you inspired the students to work hard to solve the TEASER today.   We’ll look forward to seeing you all tomorrow to cheer on the winners!

I can’t even figure it out SIDEWAYS!

We all cleaned our glasses really well and still can’t figure it out!!!!!

Tomorrow we’ll see if anyone gets it…………meanwhile, how about some food from our fabulous cafeteria staff – something to warm you up before you go outside for recess and freeze your “WHATSIS” off!

Alright boys and girls – This stuff will warm you up from the INSIDE out!

Broccoli cheese soup

Chicken noodle soup

Hearty beef stew

Fish stew

Chili

Vegetable soup

Hot chocolate bar

Enjoy!   We’ll see you tomorrow for the TELL ALL!

 

SPARKS on Monday

Standard

Here comes another Monday!    Another chance to start a FRESH week of with a little spark or two or three to light up the REST of the week with inspirational thoughts…………SPARKS is a Blog Hop hosted by Annie at McGuffy’s Reader and her goal was to share a little positivity and “power” among those who participate.    It’s like “spreading the wealth” – we share a photo or a thought or a quote or whatever “speaks to us” – because it just might “speak” to others as well.    If you would like to join us – please do – just click Annie’s graphic above – it will take you to her blog where you can LINK up and share……………

I found this quote this morning and realized how much is SAID in few words…………..maybe you will see what I mean and why it captured my imagination.   I’ve always thought waiting for life to come to us was a waste of time – it was much better to take the bull by the horns and GO FOR IT.    Nothing ventured, nothing gained.    Not always easy perhaps but that sense of accomplishment when not having to be PUSHED to try something is quite a “rush” !!

Happy Swimming my friends……

Hugs, Pam

Pre-Teaser Monday

Standard

Happy Monday!   Class is about to begin!

Yikes – I forgot to bring my school books!

Too bad buddy – you can’t go home to get your books – you’ll just have to REMEMBER tomorrow!  That’s TEN demerits!

Happy Monday Students…..please have a seat and let’s begin.

I’m ready!

Today we will be preparing you for tomorrow.   That’s right – today we just go over the rules and get you PSYCHED up for tomorrow when you will see a photo from somewhere in the world and have to guess as best you can WHERE the photo was taken!    You will also have to be on your toes (or paws as the case may be) because the post is going to pop up at a SURPRISE time so be alert!

Why should you be alert?   Because the FIRST person to comment on the post tomorrow will win this:

Then you will be shown a photo by our Security Specialist who has been keeping the photo under lock and key so there will have been NO PEEKING.    Here are the rules for tomorrow’s GUESSWORK:

The reason we have #2 for a rule is that it’s super duper easy to place the photo we will show you into some program like Google Image Search and have IT tell you where the photo was taken.  We think it’s more fun if you don’t use any “cheats” and just figure it out on your own!!

We promise NEVER to cheat Professors!

The other badges you can win would be the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, the RIGHT GUESSER (if you guess correctly but aren’t the FIRST to do so), and the WRONG GUESSER (otherwise known as the GREENIE).

Our cheerleaders are away at a cheerleading camp today but they will be here tomorrow to cheer you on.    We do have a cheer for you though.   This young lad tried out for the cheer team and didn’t make it but he was kind enough to volunteer to give you a little PUSH on Monday to get you in the mood for tomorrow!    Take it away BOBBY!

Gimme a B
Gimme an O
Two more Bs
And a Y
That’s my name
I thought it was a shame
You didn’t vote for ME
But I’m here for you to see
A grudge I do NOT hold
Though you left me out in the cold
I’m supposed to cheer you on
You’d better get up at dawn
The Teaser is a real whopper
A real heart stopper
Better get lotsa rest
You wanna be right – and best!
The girls will be here tomorrow
I’m gonna go drown my sorrow
The guys are down at the bar
So I’m gonna go hop in my car
I’ll see ya around the schoolyard
Now don’t forget to TRY HARD!!

C’mon Bobby – let’s go get a brewski !

 

Uhhh…….geee Bobby, didn’t know you’d taken it so hard when you weren’t picked for the cheerleading spot.   I’m sure next time Suzie is interviewing you can try out again!    In the meantime, thanks for cheering everyone on……………….sorta.

Poor Bobby…….

Don’t worry – Bobby will be back.   You know how the girls are always taking time off from cheer duty at school.

Don’t worry Bobby…..I’ll have a little TALK with the girls on your behalf!

OK class.   Let’s move on shall we?    Miss Dingleberry was kind enough to make some cookies for everyone today.   Tomorrow we’ll have a REAL lunch but today – snacks only.    After you have your snack you can STUDY.

OK Professors – I’ll study!

No makin’ fun of my hairnet – this is to start gettin’ me in the mood for Valentine’s Day…….

You get a smoothie or hot chocolate!

See you tomorrow!  Remember – SURPRISE time!!   

Professor Angel Sam and Teddy

Sunday Selfies

Standard

Time for Sunday Selfies with Kitties Blue

Every Sunday we hop on board the Selfie Train hosted by our good friends at The Cat On My Head………..the Kitties Blue.    It’s a great way to strut your stuff on a Sunday – if you’d like to join in the fun, click their badge and add your link and you’ll be hopping in no time.

Mom did the Lunapic thing this week AGAIN (she’s hooked – what can I say?) and jazzed my photo up a bit.   I should tell you right up front though that this is an OLD photo of me hitting the water fountain in the guest bathroom.   For one thing, I was a LOT smaller when this photo was taken.   I now take up a great deal of that counter and have to sit on the SIDE of the sink, not on the narrow EDGE like I am in this old photo!    This photo was taken in May of last year and I was adopted in February so only had been in my FOREVER HOME three months!   I had lots of growing to do and of course I’ve done that.

Here is the “before” photo:

And here’s the Lunapic version:

Thanks Mom for making me “ARTSY” for Sunday Selfies!    If you all think this photo makes my rear end look big you should see it now………..HAHAHAHA

Big Selfie Hugs, Teddy
