Friendly Fill-Ins


Hello!   Time to fill in the blanks…….this is a Hop co-hosted by Four-Legged Furballs and 15andMeowing and it’s so much fun not just to be filling in but to see what OTHERS fill-in too!    Want to join us?   Click the badge above and link up with us.

Here are this week’s sentences (two from each co-host) and this week I filled them out all by myself with no help from Mom!!  YAY ME!!!  My words are in BLUE.

1. I would love to be a personal assistant to Garfield – I think we have a whole lot in common.

2. If I had a boat, I would name it Teddy’s Tugboat.
3. I want to improve my begging skills – I’m pretty darn good but I need to “UP” my success rate!.
4. Surprises are THE BEST (unless they involve a trip in the car to SURPRISE the vet!).
There you have it.    Some thoughts right off the top of my ginger head.    It’s Friday you know so I will wish everyone a HAPPY WEEKEND!!!!!
This was taken one month after I moved into this house from the shelter – do I look relaxed to you???????

Hugs, Teddy

Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Thankfully it’s Thankful Thursday!    Remember you can join in this Blog Hop by just clicking the badge above and entering your link at Brian’s place.   We all share our thankfuls.    We must say first on our minds is being thankful that although we’ve been under severe storm watches almost every day for the past week, so far other than some high wind and heavy rain we have NOT had anything approaching “scary” like some other parts of the country are experiencing.    We’re also up on a hill so there’s no danger of flooding.    We sure do wish that the weather in the country would QUIET DOWN.    Everyone is on overload preparing or dealing with consequences of dangerous weather.   We send hugs of support to everyone who is having WAY bigger problems than we are.    Ann of Zoolatry sent out this awesome badge for anyone who wants to show they care to post…………we just love it.

The other thing we like to do on Thursdays in addition to Brian’s Hop is share the email we get from our Angel Sammy every week which contains his poem based on the photo he gives us to use as inspiration.   Thursday is the BIG DAY for that.    Here’s what we received from him via the Rainbow Bridge wifi !


Hello From The Bridge Poetry Fans!

Let’s have some poetic fun shall we?    Did you write a poem using the photo I gave you last Thursday as our “launch pad” ??   I did and if you did, let us know in comments here so we can come see your work.   Such fun to see how creative you all are and also fun to see someone who hasn’t participated in this every week give it a try.   BRAVO!   Going outside your comfort zone is good for you sometimes.

Here’s the photo I gave you LAST Thursday to use – followed by my poem:

“Now You See It….Now You Don’t”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      May 29, 2019©

Is that a fly on the canvas that I see?

It’s a tiny black dot – at least to me……

I’ve tried to see SOMETHING on this field of white

I certainly hope I’m not losing my sight!

Maybe the canvases are subtly shaded?

Maybe my love of art is becoming jaded?

Perhaps it’s an eye test….and if so I have flunked

Or candid camera maybe and we’re being punked!

Whatever is going on I’m afraid I am lost

Let’s go get a drink – I don’t care what it costs!


I really think this photo is great on many levels.    My Mom has been to exhibits of modern art before and other private art shows and seen similar canvases to these being sold for THOUSANDS of dollars.    She once asked an artist with a totally black canvas for sale for big bucks what they had in mind when they painted it.   The answer was “it’s whatever you want it to be”.     Well, my Mom did oil painting for years and there was never any doubt what the paintings were – landscapes, architectural studies, still life, etc. and perhaps that was BORING for the beholder but she felt a lot more comfortable KNOWING what it was.    Anyway, we do think this is a cute photo and can’t wait to see what YOU wrote today!

For next Thursday’s Poetry sharing……….I found another interesting photo for you to use for inspiration……….at least I think it is…………..


Oh yeah……………Mom says this reminds her of a few of her experiences at amusement parks!     I imagine we’ll have some good poems next week don’t you?

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

Until next Thursday – be happy, be kind, and remember we at the Rainbow Bridge are watching out for you……

Love, Angel Sammy


Thank you Angel Sammy.    You can’t imagine how much I look forward to your Poems every week…………………..and I know you are looking out for us ALL THE TIME.

Love and Hugs, Teddy

Teaser Tell All



Seems what we thought was perhaps a group of photos that you might have a tough time figuring out was not tough at all……………….why do we say that?   Because we had a FIRST RIGHT GUESSER quite early in the day yesterday that’s why!

You did?   Really?

Yes really.    But over and above THAT, we only had ONE FIRST COMMENTER in the first 60 seconds and that person was also our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!     It was a day of surprises!

Here are the Teaser photos from yesterday:




Want to know which vineyard was in which country??????

Vineyard #1 = Australia

Vineyard #2 = New York

Vineyard #3 = France

Our smarty pants Graphics Department thought they’d found some fairly generic photos that would make it super tough to guess which is which.    Obviously our smarty pants Graphics Department needs to step up her their game!

Now – let’s back up a bit – our FIRST COMMENTER was also our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER and we have a special badge for them……….

This is for you Kitties Blue (The Cat On My Head):


But we really must say that a whole bunch of you ALSO guessed RIGHT…………………some got France and Australia reversed but almost everyone recognized the one in New York.    If you got all three right, then you get one of these badges with our CONGRATULATIONS:

If you guessed but you were wrong – well you know by now that you are now the proud owner of a GREENIE!!

You know we try real hard to make Teaser fun for all of you whether you win or lose……………………..we hope you DO have fun.    Remember too that if you have a photo you think might be a great TEASER, just email it to me!    I’ll see that it gets some “air time” at Teaser class and then you can have fun watching people guess your photo.

Darn…..I guessed wrong….and I studied SOOOO hard too!

I know – all of you do a great job on Tuesdays figuring out the photos but someone has to win and someone has to lose………………and next week YOU may be the winner…………………

If that’s supposed to make us feel better, it didn’t work.

Well, maybe the Cheer Team can cheer you all up????

Obviously our Professors underestimated this class!
You all are smarties – you kicked some #*@ !
Excuse us please we didn’t mean to swear
But swearing sometimes gives our cheers some FLAIR!
Congratulations to Miss Janet for FIRST COMMENTER and FIRST RIGHT
That special badge is quite a sight
Next week maybe we’ll have a harder test
And some other smart student will be “badge blessed” !!!

Thanks girls……………….you’re right – we Professors let the students down with an EASY HARD TEASER.    Now who’s ready to eat lunch?    I know we are…………..!

Hello Students!   Can you tell what food we’re featuring on the line today???  HMMM???

Don’t get an upset tummy at lunch and we will be BACK next week with more TEASER fun!

Tuesday Teaser Time


Tuesday is here – are you???   If so, you’d better COMMENT before you are seated!

We always like to remind you that you have a chance EVERY Tuesday to win a “FIRST COMMENTER” badge to show off on your blog, page, FB – whatever.    You just need to be the first or one of the first (in the first minute we’re LIVE) to comment and you win one!

We’re excited today because we have a whole DIFFERENT kind of Teaser for you today.    We’re going to give you THREE photos and THREE places the photos were taken and you have to match the photo with the place!    The first one to do that will be the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER of course but anyone else who figures it out is a winner too……………….won’t that be FUN????

Thanks for something a little different Professors! You guys ROCK!

Why thank you………………’re certainly coming out of your shell this past year at school aren’t you Stanley.   We’re proud of you!

Out of his shell? I don’t have a shell – I have a diaper though……

Yes you have a diaper and we don’t want you to “come out of it” if you don’t mind!!!!

So anyway, here are the rules for the guessing of the photos today……….please follow the rules.   You know how important that is so everything is FAIR for everyone!

AND, here are the badges up for grabs today!

Oh boy – me and my twin brother are hoping to win today!

WAIT…………………..TWIN???????????????  I hate to tell you but you two absolutely do NOT look like twins!    Maybe you are non-identical twins?????     Anyway, good luck!

Let’s get our tabulous cheer team in for a rowsing cheer to give you all the HIGH EXCITEMENT level that leads to success every Tuesday.    Girls?????

The Teaser today is VERY cool
It’s different than the others at Ding Dong School
To win this time you have to guess all three!
Pretty swell don’t you agree?
We took a peek at the photos and had no clue
But we’re sure you’ll do better like you usually do!
We may not be smart but we’re pretty darn cute
Certainly better than Miss D in her birthday suit!

EWWWWW!!!!!   What a visual!!!

This is a close second to Miss D !

Shall we get the security guard to bring in today’s THREE Challenging photos???????


Howdy Everyone! Your regular guy is off this week so here I am with your PHOTOS!




Now what?   Study the three photos – and tell us which vineyard is located in WHICH place?

Your Choices are:  France, New York, Australia


OK?    When you guess, tell us which vineyard is in which place in your answer.   The first to guess all three correctly will be our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER.

Good thing I wore my glasses today !

Got that right………………………….now we want to wish you GOOD LUCK with your guessing and tomorrow remember we’ll be back to give out the awards.   In the meantime – anyone interested in grabbing a bite to eat in the cafeteria????


Hello Students…..Happy Memorial Day Plus One.   Please enjoy your lunch today – you need all the energy you can get to figure out today’s very puzzling and challenging TEASER!

Good Luck Students!

Pre-Tease Monday


Time to Prep for Tomorrow!

That’s correct – you heard it here first – today is prep day for the BIG TEST tomorrow.   Tuesday is test day around here and you need to be READY.  Our job is to get you there!

First we want to wish everyone who is celebrating Memorial Day Weekend a HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY – today is the day.    We’ve been celebrating all weekend but we need to make sure that on this day of all days we honor those who have served our country………..and that includes my Mom’s Dad who was a career Air Force officer.    He loved being in the Air Force and while we’ve shown you the photo of him walking our Mom down the aisle 29 years ago, we’re going to show it one more time!    It’s sort of a tradition around here – he had been retired for a number of years and wasn’t sure he could still fit in his uniform but he ROCKED IT!

Mom With Her Dad In His Uniform

So, in honor of all of you who have served, we wish you a happy Memorial Day and THANK YOU for your service.

Now let’s get down to business shall we?    First of all here are our Teaser Class rules for tomorrow’s “guessing” ……….you  need to follow them too!    After that, take a peek at the badges that you just might win if you’re lucky.

We will be starting class tomorrow at a surprise time too so BE READY.

Oh I’ll be ready alright!

We have an EXTRA FUN Teaser for you tomorrow too.    Trust us – it will be interesting and you will have THREE photos to examine.    Yep – THREE!


That’s right – we show you three photos – give you three places – you match photo to place.   Something different but we think you’ll enjoy it.

The Cheer Team thinks it’s going to be challenging for you – right girls??

We wanna say
Happy Memorial Day
Picnics with burgers and dogs
Eat too much and you’ll be a hog!
Make sure you don’t overeat
You want to fit into your seat!
Make sure and study tonight
Maybe tomorrow YOU can be right!
A very different kind of class……
We sure hope that you can pass!!!!

We hope students enjoy something different tomorrow too!!!!

But right now – we’re going to join Miss Dingleberry outside in the school yard for a special MEMORIAL DAY PICNIC!     Ready???  Let’s go!


Students – we’re all set up for you to enjoy a special meal for this holiday!   Enjoy!!

Grab a spot by your friends……….load up your plate with great foodables and enjoy this beautiful day!
