Teaser Tell All


Ready for us to tell all??????

Good – please have a seat and we’ll confess.   We did warn you that it would be a whopper of a Teaser didn’t we?    One of those that really was just about impossible to figure out?    Well, we will let you know who sent in this stinker of a stumper but first we wanted to tell you who was our FIRST COMMENTER yesterday.


Sharon at Friends Furever


This is a special surprise for you:

As of time we prepared class for today we had NO RIGHT GUESSERS on this whopper of a Teaser……………so I think we’d better tell all of you who successfully STUMPED everyone yesterday!


The Queen of Stumpers was our very own Miss Jackie at Two Devon Cats!

This fabulous photo was taken by her at Lee Bay near Lynton, Devon, UK (near the Valley of the Rocks)

Miss Jackie, we have a badge for you to celebrate stumping the students!

Some of you made guesses – and if you did and you were WRONG you still get your badge:

I guessed but was WRONG on the Teaser of July 30, 2019. It was a TOUGHIE!


Guess I didn’t study hard enough!

Don’t feel bad – remember nobody guessed it right – I think we ALL should adjourn to the cafeteria and drown our sorrows in a nice lunch – what do you say students?

Let’s go!!!!!

Sorry you all were WRONG on the Teaser yesterday but perhaps a nice refreshing lunch will help you get over the disappointment???????

We’ll see you all next week…………………..Your Professors

Teaser Tuesday Class


Students Please Report To Class!    But FIRST – COMMENT !!!

Hello and good morning students.

“Good Morning Professors”

  (Gosh Teddy – looks like we have a full class room today!)

Shall we begin?    First off if you missed our reminder on your way into school to comment – you’d better do it now.   You  might just be first to comment.   Then you get a badge.   Now some of you might say “big deal” but some others of you might say “OH GOODIE I WANT A BADGE FOR THAT!!”.



Yep – that’s what I thought!    Anyway, here are the rules for today’s Teaser contest AND a reminder of the BIG DEAL BADGES that we have for you if you win something!

We happen to think that today’s Teaser photo is going to stump everyone.   So there – we’ve said it – and we mean it……………there don’t seem to be ANY hints in this one whatsoever……it SEEMS like it could be any one of a thousand places on the planet (except perhaps Antarctica) so we wish you a lot of luck with this one.   If you WIN you deserve it BIG TIME.    It’s a GUEST TEASER and we’ll tell you tomorrow who the person was that sent this GEM in OK?

Before we get started let’s bring the Cheer Team out – I think you will need all the help you can get on this one so maybe they will be inspirational today???


Poor Sarge is apparently grumpy
I guess his ride to work was bumpy
But we’re here to keep you cheery
Tough Teasers make us all weary
We saw this photo and said “HUH”???????
When you see it you’ll probably say “DUH”!!!!
We thought the photo was VERY tough
Figuring it out is gonna be rough
So good luck to all of the class
We’ll give guessing this one a PASS!

Well you certainly have given the students a reason to be fearful of seeing this week’s Teaser photo ladies………you’re excused now!

Let’s move on and get the Teaser photo posted on the board so you can begin figuring things out shall we?


Here’s today’s Teaser photo Professors!

It’s a doozy alright!  Good Luck students…….


Nothing is impossible…………just give it a try – and if you need a little sustenance to get you through the studying – just follow your Professors to the lunch room !!!

Hey – no shoving – we can all go to the cafeteria peacefully!

Greetings Teaser Class…..time to have some lunch and relax before going back to class to figure out the photo!   Good luck from your cafeteria staff!

SPARK for Monday & Teaser Reminder


What’s SPARKS???   You all know that Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – who started SPARKS – was hacked and has been on an extended break from blogging although her idea to spread some inspiration on Monday of every week goes on.   Many of us who participated in her SPARKS Blog Hop and found value in sharing a thought on Monday continue doing that to hopefully give each other a “Monday boost” – perhaps something to think about to inspire us in the week ahead OR help us deal with something that’s on our mind.    Why not join us by sharing something that SPARKS you?   It might just start a spark in us too.

I have a really great SPARK today.   I guess over my many years I finally DID learn this but it took time……….they say many of the best things in life take time to learn.

Have a wonderful week ahead everyone!!

Hugs, Pam

P.S. for Teaser Class Fans – remember tomorrow is Teaser – surprise time – guess where the photo was taken……….it’s a MAJOR TOUGHIE this week.    Just remember that when you arrive tomorrow – COMMENT FIRST.    OK?   OK!   The Professors will look for YOU in class!

YES WE WILL…….Angel Sammy and Teddy

Sunday Selfie Hop


Sunday!   You know what that means……………..SELFIE TIME!     If you’d like to join us by sharing your selfie at the Hop hosted by Kitties Blue, click the badge above and join in the fun.

Mom took a photo of my rear end yesterday – so I suppose this is a “rear end selfie” this time around.    She is fascinated by the position I get in sometimes – she thinks my rear legs looks a bit like a frog…..or rabbit…..or something other than a cat.    I think that it’s none of her business how I lie down as long as I’m comfortable and I’m ALWAYS comfortable!    Cats are masters of “comfortable”.

First I’ll show you the “original” then I’ll show you the one she did using the “REPTILE” (eeeeek) filter at Lunapic.   It does kind of make it look like I’m some sort of strange animal with scales!   Then finally there’s the puzzle……….you know how Mom likes to make me into a puzzle.

So what’s so entertaining about this view Mom????? Hmmmmm?

Beware of the vicious REPTILE (Allicatgator??  Snakecat??   Lizardkitty??)

So here’s the puzzle……………..GOOD LUCK and of course – HAPPY SUNDAY!


Happy Belly-Up Sunday!   Hugs, Teddy

Bakin’ with Bacon and The King!


It’s Good To Be King!

It’s another Saturday and you know that’s MY day here in Castle Baconia – The King is creating something in the kitchen for you with the National Food of Kingdom Baconia – BACON – WHAT ELSE???    I have to explain about this recipe though – see my Dad LOVES his bratwurst!   It’s just one of those things he enjoys so Mom found this recipe that has bacon AND brats in it as well as cheese and some nice SWEET stuff to make this just about PERFECT.     You’ve GOTTA try this.

Bacon-Brats-Cheese Pizza


  • 1 refrigerated thin pizza crust
  • 4 maple-flavored bacon strips, chopped (yes as usual we made FIVE strips instead of four!)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 fully cooked beer bratwurst links, finely chopped (they don’t HAVE to beer brats but Dad says they’re the best)
  • 1/3 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 teaspoons honey mustard
  • 2 cups shredded white or yellow cheddar cheese (Mom used yellow SHARP cheddar cheese)


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Unroll and press dough onto bottom and 1/2 in. up sides of a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake until edges are lightly browned, 8-10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon and onion over medium heat until bacon is crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Discard drippings.
  • Add bratwurst to same pan; cook and stir until browned, 2-3 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, mix preserves and mustard. Spread over crust; top with bratwurst, bacon mixture and cheese. Bake until cheese is melted, 8-10 minutes

SEE?    I told you it was easy…………..and with ingredients like this how can you miss?    Mom had never had apricot preserves before but she loves fruit preserves so she got some apricot just for this recipe.    It’s now one of her faves.   You never know when you’ll find a new favorite thing!

Not in THIS castle – no way!

Yep – we all need to tingle from time to time……..!

By the way… Dad said that this recipe would “probably” be good even without the brats…..well, who’d have thought he’d actually say that but know what?   He’s “probably” right!

IT’s good to be King……especially if bacon is involved!   HAPPY SATURDAY!

Your King
