Thankful and Poetic Thursday

55

Thankful Thursday time……………..Brian, #1 thankful today is thanks to you for hosting this chance for us to all get together and concentrate on what we’re thankful for!    Anyone else wanting to join in just click on Brian’s badge and link up.    It’s something I think we ALL look forward to every week.

Another thing I’m thankful for is that we only for 3 inches of snow this time around.   The “arctic air” and extreme cold is really something but somehow with the sun out, it’s not so bad.   We just feel awful for any creature who does not have shelter when it’s like this.

I got Angel Sammy’s poem last night so I’m happy to share his Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poem with you all!    If you wrote a poem this week, let us know in comments won’t you?   We’ll come visit you and read your poetry.

♥♥♥

Hello Fellow Poets and Poetry Fans!   Time to SHARE!

Hope we have a few more entries to read today in our weekly get-together………if you say that you “can’t” write poetry you’re wrong.    If you can WRITE, you can write a poem.   Trust me.   Just try once and you might like it.     I will give you a photo every Thursday and you have a WHOLE WEEK to think about it and see what you can come up with in the way of a poem – any poetic form – to share the following Thursday.  

Here’s the photo I gave you for THIS week with my poem following.    Gosh this looks amazing doesn’t it????

“WOW!”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell     January 30, 2019

 

This skillfully built masterpiece of calories

I hope the designer has a good salary!

I look at it and think WOW

I wish that I could eat that NOW

Sweets aren’t good for cats to eat

But a little lick of ice cream is a very nice treat

That whipped cream is inviting – I might eat that……

Surely anything in moderation is OK for a cat?

My Mom says even though she’s getting too round

She’d like to tackle this banana split then lose 50 pounds!

 

When we saw this photo we just knew it would be a fun one to write a poem about.    My Mom hasn’t had a banana split in YEARS.   Funny but it’s kind of one of those “old-fashioned” ice cream treats……these days people are more diet conscious and get sugar-free trees or at least something in moderation – – – this photo shows an all out, full speed ahead, ice cream orgy in a dish!!!

Well, I hope you had fun with this – I did.   Now for next week’s photo – you have ALL week to think about what to write………………let this photo inspire you!

When I saw this photo I thought – “NO WAY!!”…………but there are a lot of people who love high diving – cliff diving – dangerous diving and while I wouldn’t do it (even though I’m safe because I’m am Angel!) that doesn’t mean that SOME consider it a legitimate sport.    I just think it will make for a GREAT poem!

So I’ll see you here next week?    I sincerely hope that I do……………….I love this little bit of time with all my friends……………..I miss all of you……………..

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Love always from the rainbow…………Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

Oh Angel Sammy that photo is just so scary…..even cats who can handle jumping from amazing heights would NOT want to leap off that rock – I won’t even leap off my cat tree from the tippity top.   Anyway, thank you for sharing your poetry with us every week.

STAY WARM EVERYONE………..

Brrrrr…..

We’re staying warm!

This coat helps a lot!

I can handle it!

Can we go inside now Mom??

It’s too cold for us to be outside so stay inside………………..and if you’re able to provide shelter to another animal during this horrible arctic cold, please do.   We have our heated cat house on the front porch!

The heated bed for any visiting kitties on my porch!

Hugs, Teddy

 

 

Teaser Tell All

37

C’mon in and get warmed up – it’s time for class!

OK Students…………………yesterday’s Teaser was guessed fairly quickly BUT it was still fun………………and know what else?   We had TWO First Commenters – I think the Cheer Team was mighty happy to hear that so they wouldn’t have a super long cheer to do adding a bazillion names.    We’ll find out shortly I guess – they’re in the hot tub working on their cheer now!

GROOVY……………TOTALLY.

Our FIRST COMMENTERS this week were:

*****Drum Roll*****

CARRY from CarryLovesCats

OLIVER/CALVIN (and Mom Melissa)

Woo Hoo!   Concatulations!   You each win one of these:

I was a FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser of January 29, 2019 and I’m PROUD OF IT!

I was a little late to class yesterday or I’d have won this badge!!!!

Then we watched and waited and sure enough – before long in came the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER……………..WHO WAS IT??????

It was ME wasn’t it – it was ME right???? Huh????

No it wasn’t YOU – it was ME! ME ME ME ME!

No sorry boys neither of you were right with your guesses but ONE person was FIRST right and that was:

*****Drum Roll*****

PHENNY and NEILSON of Easyweimaraner!

WOO HOO DUDES – you get this badge!!!

We were FIRST RIGHT GUESSERS on the Teaser of January 29, 2019 – we TOTALLY ROCK!

And there were others who guessed the correct location for the Teaser too – each of you win one of these:

I guessed RIGHT on the Teaser of January 29, 2019 BUT I was not FIRST……Darn!

And of course we are awarding the world famous GREENIE to those of you who guessed INCORRECTLY:

POOEY! I guessed WRONG on the Teaser of January 29, 2019 but I tried……so there!!

Here’s the Teaser photo again THEN we’ll tell you where it was taken:

What a beautiful place……….who’d have guessed though that it’s located in San Francisco, California???    This is the gorgeous San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts.    It has a most interesting history and if you’d like more info about it, just CLICK HERE.

Give yourselves a hand winners and better luck next time to our Greenie Gang!

Congratulations EVERYONE!!!

Let’s have that cheer from the Cheer Team shall we???    They are all dried off from hot tub time and fresh as four little daisies – TAKE IT GIRLS!!

Here we are fresh from the tub
After we tell you who won, let’s all get some grub!
Carry and Oliver and Calvin too
Were our FIRST COMMENTERS and faster than YOU!
Then we waited and had our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER
Phenny and his brother Neilson were RIGHT even under pressure!
Another successful Teaser for Ding Dong School
Now let’s go get lunch because we’re starting to drool!

Yeah I see some drooling students in class so maybe we’d better scoot over to the cafeteria for lunch.    Then you all get to go home early because it’s SNOWING and the buses don’t like driving in that stuff (we Professors don’t like to either!).     We’ll see you in class next week though!

Hello Students!   It’s time to get some lunch to warm you up before you head on home to play in the snow!  Enjoy!

I’m not looking forward to hopping off the bus into THIS!

Tuesday Teaser Time

75

IT’s TUESDAY and time to COMMENT!!!!  

Hello students…………we hope everyone is well rested and ready for class.   Our Teaser today is not a Guest Teaser – our Graphics Department provided the photo.    So sit back, take a few deep breaths, and prepare to be TEASE-TESTED!

I’m ready!

I’m TOTALLY ready and dressed for sleuthing!

OK – let’s begin.    First of course a quickie review of rules and badges……..

I think we’ll get the Cheer Team to pump you all up and get you ready for guessing – you know how inspiring they can be (cough cough) !

Not sure I’d say inspiring – bossy maybe……

It’s time to tease
So sit down please
Your desk chairs are warm
So your tushies won’t freeze
Take a look at the pic
As the school clock ticks
Try to be FIRST
Getting a badge would be quite a trick!
No cheating allowed
Make us all proud
If you figure the Teaser out
Don’t yell out loud!
Good luck to you guys
We know you’re all wise
So show off your brains
YOU MIGHT WIN A PRIZE!

Well done ladies – let’s bring on our Security Guard with today’s photo so you can get started figuring it out!

PAGING SECURITY GUARD TO GEOGRAPHY CLASS WITH PHOTO!

Hello Professors and Class – here’s your challenge for today!

Where in the world is this?????????   We’ll TELL ALL tomorrow of course but for now – try to figure this out using your own clever mystery solving!!

Sherlock can figure out ANYTHING!

Now you may stay here and work on the Teaser OR you can follow we Professors as we head to the cafeteria because something that smells delicious is wafting down the hallways and we’re READY TO EAT!    Remember, class tomorrow will be at regular time and we’ll get the scoop on today’s photo.

Hello Students!   Step right up for your delicious lunch selections of the day!   Make sure you eat something nourishing so your brain will be ready to tackle the Teaser!!!!!!

Pre-Teaser Monday Time!

32

Greetings Students!

It’s Monday again……..seems like we just had one of those but I guess it’s been a whole week.   Are you ready for a refresher course before the BIG TEASE tomorrow?   I hope so.    I know you know the rules and stuff BUT we need to make sure anyone who’s new (or was asleep through all of that in previous classes) knows what we expect on Teaser Tuesday so bear with us.

I’ll take a tiny snooze while you do that part……

The rules for tomorrow’s Teaser guessing are:

AND the badges that you are eligible to win if you’re FAST, RIGHT, or even if you’re WRONG are:

One MOST important thing to remember is that when you arrive at class tomorrow (at an unspecified top secret time when we go LIVE) you must:

COMMENT!!

If you are FIRST or one of the first in the sixty seconds after our post comes out tomorrow you will get a FIRST COMMENTER BADGE!     OK?    So while I can’t tell you when we’ll be starting class tomorrow, you want to be ALERT for the arrival of our notice in your inbox.

I was thinking of pitching a tent out front of school and sleeping here so I can be here when the doors open tomorrow!

It’s a bit too cold for camping out but we Professors appreciate your dedication!

I hope you appreciate us!

Now that you know what to expect tomorrow, let’s bring in the Cheer Team to HYPE YOU UP for class.    They are very good at that!

Ramma Lamma Ding Dong School
Lotsa smart students and very few fools!
Make sure and be here all rested and happy
Cuz you might win a badge and you’ll feel quite snappy!
We hear Miss D is away for a while
Her surgery didn’t last and now she can’t smile
Who knows what she’ll look like when she gets back
The Swedish Chef is here to give us our snacks
See you tomorrow, and don’t be late….
We’ll be waiting for you to arrive at Ding Dong School’s gate!!

Thanks gang……………..you saved me the trouble of telling everyone not to expect the “new improved Miss Dingleberry” in the cafeteria today.    As some of you may have noticed, her plastic surgery job was quickly sagging and bagging in very unattractive locations SO she’s having some modifications made.    Never a dull moment at Ding Dong Sheep School right?

I HATE changes!

Too bad because one thing I can guarantee you around here is that we are in a rather constant state of flux and changes WILL come and go so just take a chill pill and relax.

STRAIGHTEN UP STUDENTS! No sassing back at the Professors!

So who’s up for lunch?    Hopefully all of you.   Of course if you want to stay behind and study in STUDY HALL, you are welcome to do that but you might want to take a break and have a GOOD LUNCH before you head home.

Welcome Students!   No worries – we will have great food while Miss D is away……line up and get your trays and go through the line – ENJOY!!

Ahhh…..delish!    Thanks Chef – we’ll see you tomorrow.   We’ll also see all you students tomorrow at a surprise time – when you arrive make sure and COMMENT.   Good luck!

Sunday Selfie Hop

53

Sunday!   Time for the Selfie Hop with Kitties Blue…………………my Selfies have been FLASHBACK ones from a year ago this same time – kinda fun looking back but you probably have something CURRENT you’d like to share – please do.   Join the hop by clicking the badge above to go to The Cat On My Head – our wonderful hosts – and join in the fun.

This is the SELFIE I posted a year ago:

Actually it was posted on January 28th last year but it’s pretty darn close to a year ago right?  Just one day off?    Well at this time I was still drinking from the stream of water from the faucet whereas THESE days, I prefer the sink to be filled up with water and I just treat it as my own personal pond!    I don’t jump up there on my own EVER though – I go find one of my parents and ask them to follow me upstairs to the sink and put me up there themselves.    I’m not sure what I weighed a year ago but I can tell just looking at “me” that it was a lot less than I weigh now.

Hey – I’m a growing boy!    I’ll be three in March………..and next month I’ll celebrate my second GOTCHA on February 12th.

While I was working on this blog post Mom came into the room and I asked her if we could take a little “WATER BREAK” so she took me to the upstairs bathroom sink and gave me a drink.   She grabbed her camera and took a couple of shots of me at the watering trough (!) so here’s an update of me at the sink TODAY:

Yeah I might be a little larger than a year ago…….just a little…….

Anyway, here’s the photo of  ME after Mom Lunapic-ed it !    She used the “FLOATING” art effect.   Good choice right?   HAHAHA

Anybody UP for a jigsaw of this one?    Click the MINI-ME below and have fun!

HAPPY SUNDAY!!!!   Hugs, Teddy
