It’s Double Up Day!

Standard

Thankful Thursday and Poetic Challenge ALL IN ONE!

First up – let’s talk about being THANKFUL!    Every Thursday the blogosphere shares with each other some of the things that we are THANKFUL for – new things, old things, doesn’t matter – most of us have things we truly are thankful for and we’re no exception here at One Spoiled Cat!    Thank you Brian for hosting this wonderful Blog Hop – if you want to join in – click his badge and visit him to use the LINK tool and you’re IN!

Mom is thankful that Angel Sammy sent me to his old shelter so my Mom and Dad would find me – I’m thankful HE did that and that THEY found me!   Those are BIG thankfuls for me.   Angel Sammy is thankful that when he arrived at the Rainbow Bridge it was everything he thought it would be and more.   He has US here if he needs us and he has all his Angel friends THERE if he needs them and to do good works with since Angels work hard every day.   Mom is thankful for many MANY things…….to have her health again, to be ALIVE and about to have her 70th birthday, to be married to my Dad for 27 years in a couple of weeks, to have ME (tee hee), to have a comfortable home and all the things she wants or needs……….fortunate?  We all are.   We’re THANKFUL.

I also received a BLOG AWARD from some friends this week but I’m going to write about that and follow the “rules” for the award in another post – but until then, we want to THANK our friends Hemingway and Steinbeck  for nominating us for this award!    You two are such good buddies and pals.

The second part of my blog post today is one I do WITH my Angel brother Sammy.     This is the THIRD TIME to go through the alphabet here on the blog – can you believe it?   We’re chugging our way through and have made it to the letter “J”…………….As you all know, Angel Sammy transmits HIS poem to me via his laptop computer and the Rainbow Wi-Fi link every Wednesday night so I can post it for you every Thursday morning!    His way of keeping in touch with us all!

Here’s what I got from him last night:

Greetings From Paradise !

Hello Friends!   Oh how I look forward to Thursday of every week so we can share our poetry with each other………….I write mine from my vantage point of the Rainbow Bridge, and you write yours from wherever you are………..and we enjoy each other’s thoughts.   Remember if you decide to write a poem you can post it HERE in our blog comments OR you can give us in comments your blog link where we can zip off to read your words!   Poems do not have to rhyme…….poems are thoughts we put together for the purpose of sharing and putting what we think or feel into words.  

We are up to the letter “J” and I gave you four prompt words that you could choose to use one or more of but you can write about ANYTHING starting with the letter “J” !!!    These were the prompts I gave you last week if you needed an inspiration:

(1) JUICY (2) JUMP (3) JUNGLE (4) JEALOUS

I’m using one of my prompts from last week – the word “JUNGLE”!

“JUNGLE”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, August 16, 2017

Cats all share one special feature

An “inner” soul of a fierce, wild creature!

Pretending we are stalking dangerous prey

We practice hard almost every day!

Among the houseplants or gardens we bungle

Pretending we’re tigers in our own private jungle

We sneak up on toys, food bowls or your TOES

Where we’ll attack nobody knows!

Our jungle can be among furniture or on beds

Or the blankets, sheets and pillows where you put your heads!

As long as we THINK that we cannot be seen

We stalk and have fun and try not to be MEAN

Our inner wild animal comes out as we play

Then we tuck it back inside to let loose the next day!

 

♥♥♥

Now it’s YOUR turn!   Write a poem – trust me – you will feel good sharing a thought or idea or feeling…………I do it every Thursday with all of you – give it a try!    Now for NEXT week’s prompt words which might jump start your thoughts for a poem!  

(1) KISS  (2) KEY  (3) KING  (4) KINDLE

Good luck my friends and I’ll look forward to seeing you NEXT Thursday for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with ME!!

I will love you all FOREVER, Angel Sammy

Thank you dear brother………………we’ll look forward to next Thursday and in the meantime everyone – why not take Angel Sammy’s suggestion and WRITE A POEM !!

Hugs, Teddy

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Let’s Tell It ALLLL!

Oh yes indeed let’s “GIVE IT UP” !!    Yesterday’s Teaser adventure was interesting wasn’t it?    Lots of good sleuthing going on out there……………people were looking at the architecture and figuring out a whole lot including where in the world that kind of structure might be located!   FUN huh?

I think we’ll start off today by letting you know that the Teaser Photo was from our friend Miss Steph and her kitty Gracie HERE.   It was a photo that a friend of theirs took on her travels around the globe and we THANK her for it!    This is for you Miss Steph:

For Stephanie and Gracie for Teaser of 8/15/17

Before we get into “who won what” let’s show you the Teaser photos AGAIN then let you know where they were taken shall we?

Oh good – if you’re happy then I’m happy.

This my friends is the sleepy town of Chisinau where the beautiful Capriana Monastery complex is located in the Country/Republic of MOLDOVA!    This particular building is the “Winter Church of Saint George” which was built in the 20th century but other structures on the property date back to the 1400s.   I must say that at some point in their past, Moldova WAS in fact part of Romania but is not currently.    It’s on its’ own and wants to stay that way (!!).    We are embarrassed to say that we didn’t know there was a MOLDOVA.    Anyway, really interesting Teaser this week right?

NOW – WHO WINS WHAT??????

Our FIRST COMMENTER yesterday was the irrepressible and ever eager (and always awake!) Da Phenny from Brittany, France and he and his Mom commented in the first sixty seconds after we went LIVE this morning.   This is for you!

For Phenny on August 15, 2017

Next up – FIRST RIGHT GUESSER…………….now we had a bit of an interesting situation with this – why?   Phenny and his Mom guessed the correct building and city but said Romania!    They were just so darn close but not RIGHT……………..we’re giving them a little something anyway!

For Da Phenny on August 15, 2017 !

And Miss Csilla who is also quite a Teaser Expert and posted several ideas about the Teaser before she gave us her GUESS – was TOTALLY right about Moldova so she is technically our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!

For Csilla, August 15, 2017

There were a few others who guessed correctly AFTER Csilla…………..if you were one of them, then this next one is YOURS!

For Teaser of August 15, 2017

HOWEVER, if you were WRONG………….and there were a pile of you who were (thanks for trying ANYWAY!)………..you get a GREENIE!

Now I do believe our little Holy Terror (oops…….I mean SWEET CHEERLEADER) Suzie has a bit of a cheer for you winners today!    Come on down Suzie!!

The Teaser sure was tough
Made Teaser Day too rough!
But through all the gloom and doom
Two bright lights filled the room!
Da Phenny was close as could be
BUT not quite right I’m afraid was he
Then Csilla chimed in and was RIGHT
The competition was tight!
She was the First Right Guesser
So give her the award Professor!
Oh before I forget
Da Phenny scored another hit
He was FIRST to comment on the blog
He’s got fast paws for a dog!
A successful Teaser this week
Next week a new Teaser we’ll seek!!!

Thank you SuzieQ!   I think your cheer rounded out the day quite nicely……………………Students – you all did very well this week on what I considered to be a TOUGHIE indeed!

NO NO!!!  Don’t be SAD – be PROUD!

Next week it will be a new chance for everyone to take a whack at guessing yet another fabulous photo!    If you’d like to send us a Teaser photo you think will fool the classroom – please do!  Just email my Mom with it and we’ll use it one of these Tuesdays.

Where in the world will we go next week??????

Professor Angel Sammy – at your service! 

See you next Tuesday!

 

 

 

Teaser Tuesday

Standard

Time For School!

Good morning class!!!!

GOOD MORNING TEACHERS!

…..zzzzz……

Good Morning!!!!

Time again for figuring out a photo – actually TWO photos today………………..BUT before we begin, remember to QUICK make a comment on this post so you can get a FIRST COMMENTER badge like this one:

This FIRST COMMENTER BADGE is much sought after far and wide and even on other planets (well…..I don’t know that for a fact but……..).    Go on – hurry up – Sarge will escort you there and back………..

MOVE IT MOVE IT !

Now that we’ve probably got a FIRST COMMENTER (or two or three), let’s move on shall we?

Today’s Teaser is – if you don’t mind me saying – a WHOPPER………………I think it’s tough.   I’ll just go ahead and come right out and say it!    TOUGH!    When Mr. Briefcase posts it you’ll see what I mean……………..but before we go that far, let me remind you of the rules!!!

  1. NO FAIR using Google Image Search!   That’s just WAY WAY WAY too easy to do – we’d much prefer it if you would try and figure it out without doing that!   OK????  OK!!!!!
  2. You must tell me what town/city/village AND what country (if out of the USA) or state (if in the USA) the photo(s) were taken in………where was the photographer when they took the photo???

Easy – two rules……………….I just KNOW you can handle that…………..so shall we move on?????    We will begin with our effervescent little princess of punk cheerleading, SuzieQ……….Come on down Suzie!

Hidey Hi, Hidey Ho
Teaser time so let’s GO GO GO!
It’s somewhere on Earth
the photo was taken
But where oh where was that camera shakin’ ?
Was it on a deserted isle in the middle of the sea?
Or maybe in Tasmania from up in a tree?
Was the photographer on Mars or maybe Pluto?
Or maybe in Italy – the land of prosciutto?
It’s up to you to come up with a guess
Be the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER – faster than the rest!
Tomorrow’s the TELL ALL
When we see who has won
I love Teaser Tuesdays – they are SO MUCH FUN!

Well Suzie – that was well said………………you’ve certainly made everyone aware that this might be a doozy of a Teaser so why don’t we prove it by bringing in Mr. Silver Briefcast/Forest Ranger/FBI Agent/Secret Service Guy with the photos shall we?

Here’s this week’s photos Professor!

 

There you have it – the second photo structure can be seen in the first photo – right side of photograph…………………..just to orient you!   NOW WHERE THE HECK IS THIS????

If you are the first to guess correctly where this was taken, you win this:

If you guess correctly but are NOT the first to do so, you get one of these:

And if you are WRONG but you’ve guessed anyway, you get one of these:

SO what are you waiting for – turn on your brain and figure this little mystery out!   I’ll be patiently waiting for the first student to raise his or her hand who HAS GOT IT – tomorrow in class we’ll find out WHO you winners are!!

Oh look who’s at the classroom door – it’s Miss Dingleberry………………………….

Oh Professor??? I’ve got the cookies and milk I promised for your class today…..our theme was “unusual looking cookies”…….enjoy!

Can we have more than one????

Professor Sammy – my Mommy will be upset if you have those thong-cookies out in public!!!

Well, don’t tell her then……………..HAHAHA

Thank you Miss Dingleberry for your cafeteria crew’s creative cookie effort!  

CLASS MAY BE DISMISSED FOR RECESS!

We’ll see you tomorrow for the TELL ALL! 

GOOD LUCK! 

The Profs

Pre-Teasing AND A Reminder……….

Standard

Let The Pre-Teasing BEGIN!

Yes indeedy – time for Pre-Tease Class to begin……..are you all settled in your seats?

YESSIR!

Assistant Prof Teddy and I want to get you all prepared for tomorrow’s Teaser challenge – it’s going to be a toughie I think but you know and I know that when I say that – usually someone gets it in the first five minutes (!!) – so just be aware that it MIGHT be tough for some.    Here are the rules of the game:

  1.   Don’t resort to GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH……why?   Well, because it’s a whole lot more fun if nobody uses the easy way out and everybody uses their BRAINS to figure it out that’s why!
  2.   To win, you have to guess the correct TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE as well as the correct State (if USA) or Country (if not USA)!

See?  Not a lot of rules – just don’t cheat and be complete.   Say – that sounds like a “jingle” !

“Don’t Cheat And Be Complete”

HAHAHA…..I like it!

The other thing to remember is that whoever is the first to make a comment of any kind on tomorrow’s Teaser post will win a FIRST COMMENTER BADGE!   This one in fact:

Then of course you might be lucky enough to be the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, or a RIGHT GUESSER, or even if you’re wrong you get a GREENIE for your time and trouble!

Now last week if you recall, Csilla received TWO awards – she was FIRST COMMENTER and FIRST RIGHT GUESSER………………..you wouldn’t want her to win AGAIN this week right?   So be on the ball………and while you do NOT know when the post will go live (because it’s never the same time from week to week!) you can keep an eye or an ear on your computer or phone or pad or WHATEVA!    So you could conceivably WIN something!    WOO HOO!

Alright, alright…..calm down….whatever you do don’t lose control!

Now for a little extra inspiration this morning, how about a little dose of SUZIE?   Sometimes it’s just what the doctor ordered (or should I say psychiatrist?!) !

A cheery good morning
Then comes the Teaser with no warning!
No time to even think
Or make yourself a drink
Just go with your gut feeling
Though your brain may be reeling
Have some caffeine to be alert
Wake up slowly so it doesn’t hurt!
Then come here and do your best
Get here first before the rest
A special cheer I’ll do for the winner
Maybe Miss D will make you dinner?
See you tomorrow bright and early
I’ll be here looking cute and GIRLY!

Alright Suzie!   I’m sure all of our students will be here working hard to figure things out tomorrow……………….getting a special cheer on TEASER TELL ALL Wednesday because they were FIRST just has to be terribly tempting for everyone.

I’m also told that in fact Miss Dingleberry is going to be bringing cookies and milk from the cafeteria for all of us tomorrow.   Home baked cookies and nice COLD milk.    Can’t beat that with a stick right?

Don’t worry – we’ll have plenty of napkins handy.

Assistant Prof Teddy and I will see you tomorrow Class!

NOW FOR A REMINDER!!!!

As you probably remember, this month AND in September as well, Angel Sammy and I are hosting Shopping Around The World for Bacon and his Mom.   They are up to their eyeballs with “stuff” and need a “time out” from the shopping fun so asked us to fill in!

We invite you to join us on THURSDAY, AUGUST 31st for SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD – right here on our blog – but you will still LINK to Bacon’s blog HERE.     What is the theme for this month????

SNACKS!  

What does that mean?   It means when you want a little something different than ripping open a bag of chips at night as you watch TV or even if people stop by unexpectedly and you need to make something yummy and QUICK – WHAT IS THAT??????   A special dip?   A plate of gourmet cheeses?   Whacked up fruit with some kind of sweet yogurt/honey sauce?   Yep – watching TV with a bag of chips on your tummy is fine and dandy (and Mom and Dad do that too sometimes!) but then there’s other times when that just doesn’t “MAKE IT”……….so please share your recipe for a special snack you like OK?    If you can show us a photo of it – GRAND…………but one thing we ask you ALL to do is tell us what this fabulous snack of yours COSTS to make?   Tell us the recipe with ingredients and the cost of each thing.    It’s a “SHOW AND TELL OF FOOD” !!!    So I’ll see you Friday right???

See you in the grocery store aisles!!

Love, Teddy

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Yay!  It’s 2-For-1 Day!

First up in our two posts in one day is our friend Brian’s Thankful Thursday……………even though all of us are thankful every day, we set aside Thursday to SHARE what we’re thankful for by hooking up to Brian’s Blog Hop – just click his badge above and you will go there right away then use the LINKY tool to “hook up” !!

I want to say that today I’m particularly THANKFUL for my Mom.   Why?   Well, this whole week I’m “away” at Cat Scouts (online of course) and we’re at Yosemite at Summer Camp.   We’ve had TWO craft projects to complete and Mom of course did them for me since unlike my brother Angel Sammy, I don’t have thumbs!    One was making a special hat and the other actually was something for Scout Moms.   It’s an infinity scarf but we had to paint it and it’s drying so I can’t show you that but I CAN show you the cool hat she made from the instructions we got – she had to sew it by hand.  I think she did a SWELL job and I am so THANKFUL!

YAY MOM!   Thanks for helping me at Cat Scouts.   We have so much fun – she’s going to try to get a photo of me wearing the cap (hahahahahaha good luck with that!)………Interested in joining Cat Scouts?  Just go HERE to register.   Tell them Angel Sammy and Teddy sent ya!

Now on to part #2 of the blog today which was sent to me LAST NIGHT in an email from my Angel brother Sammy………………..here’s what he sent!

♥♥

Hello from the Rainbow Bridge my friends!

Today is my Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poetry day………………my challenge to you is to make it for the THIRD TIME through the alphabet with a poem each week using the NEXT letter of the alphabet.    We are up to the letter “I” – can you believe it?    We’re working our way through!    Anyone can write a poem – so why not you – go ahead – poetry doesn’t even have to RHYME to have a theme and a meaning so if you’d like to join us, please do!   

The way we do this is you are free to write a poem about ANYTHING AT ALL that begins with the letter “I” – OR, you could use one or more of the prompt words I give you every Thursday to use for the following week.    Last week I gave you four “I” prompts that you could use if you want:

(1) IMAGINE (2) IDIOT (3) IRON (4) ICKY

Those were kind of tough prompts but I just bet you came up with something INTERESTING (say – that word starts with an “I”!) for your poem this week.    Here’s MINE:

“I”

“Imagine”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 8/9/17

Imagine a place where peace abounds

Endless flowers adorn beautiful grounds

Endless blue in the sky up above

Never a bad thought, just boundless LOVE

Imagine a cloud so soft and secure

A bed for an angel, with dreams that are pure

Imagine being healthy, and young, and revived

You just left one existence but your “self” survived

Your wings lift you up and you fly with such ease

You may visit your family and friends if you please

We have gone from your touch, but we’re with you still

One day we will see you as you come up the hill

Arrive at the Bridge and we run to your side

The love we have held like a rushing tide

We welcome you home – we’re together at last

A reunion so sweet, like mere seconds have passed……….

 

Yes I’ve written about the Bridge again………….I suppose it’s just natural for me to do that because after all – I’m HERE!    It really is a wonderful place and those of us who are here will be waiting for you – our beloved humans – until you are able to join us.   Meanwhile, look for us in your dreams………..or in the clouds on a clear day……….or at the end of the RAINBOW!

Your prompt words next week if you wish to use one will be:

(1) Juicy (2) Jump (3) Jungle (4) Jealous

See you next week!  

Love, Angel Sammy

♥♥

Thank you for your poem this week Angel Sammy.  One day – hopefully a long time from now, I will join you at the Bridge – what a TIME we will have!!!   Then Mom and Dad will make their way there and we will be together again.

I hope if you have written a poem you will either post your poem in our comments here, OR in comments give us the link to your blog so we can visit you and read your MASTERPIECE!!!!!    Make sure and visit us on Poetry Thursday next week……………..we’ll look for you!!

APAWS APAWS FOR POETRY!

Love, Teddy

 

 

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Ringy Ding Dong!

Better hurry up and get your seats students! I’m taking names of you SLOW ones!

Glad you could make it………………now before you get TOO comfy, remember to COMMENT on this post because if you are the FIRST COMMENTER today (or even if you are ONE of the first in the first sixty seconds) you get a badge!   WOO HOO!   GO ON – HURRY UP!

Can I take a snooze while they’re gone???

OK class – now you can settle down – tomorrow we’ll let you know WHO was fast on the draw and got the FIRST COMMENT in!   For now though, let’s buckle up and get ready to see today’s TEASER PHOTO shall we??

Let me go over the rules first:

  1. In order to be the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER you must guess the CITY/VILLAGE/TOWN as well as the STATE (if in USA) or COUNTRY (if not in USA) where the photo was taken.
  2. Since it’s SO DARN EASY to just use Google Image Search – resist the temptation to do so – let your BRAIN do all the work – it’s more of a challenge that way!!   Figure it out without help!

That’s it – so now that we have that straight, let’s see if our dear Suzie would like to PUMP UP THE VOLUME and give you a Teaser Cheer to get the creative juices flowing.

Hope you weren’t late
Never hesitate
Sarge likes to YELL
And ring the school bell
So let’s get to guessing
Hope you read your lessons!
I think this one is TOUGH
Might make you feel real ROUGH
Just give it all you got
Or your brain might go to rot!
Pinky Panky Pookie
Let’s Play HOOKY !

 

Uh…..thanks Suzie – that was inspiring other than when you encouraged class to play hooky.    Now Mr. Security Dood/Briefcase Man will bring in today’s PHOTO and we’ll let the GUESSING BEGIN!!!!!

Here’s this week’s photo Professor!

(some areas have been blacked out to remove clues!!)

 

Alright students – it’s up to you now………………if you are the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER today you will win this:

If you guess RIGHT but you’re not FIRST you get this:

If you guess INCORRECTLY but tried your bestest, then you get this:

AND for the one or ones who were FIRST COMMENTER today?    You will win this:

 

Now I promised you that Miss Dingleberry would have some sort of special SOMETHING for all of you before you head out for recess today…………..eating well makes your brain work better you know……..so make sure and have some lunch before you play on the monkey bars or swing on the swings OK?

WHAT CAFETERIA TREATS DID YOU MAKE FOR US TODAY MISS D???

Me and the staff made you all FOOT LONG sandwiches today…..aren’t we SWELL to go to all that trouble for you students????

 

Turkey Sub

Tuna sub

Steak and cheese sub

Deli meat sub

 

Fruit juices for drinks – no sugary, ooey gooey junk like you drink at home – this is the GOOD STUFF!

Thank You Miss Dingleberry!!!! 

No butting in line – everybody gets to choose one sub!

Is it OK if I have a sub too Angel Sammy – I mean Professor Sammy???

OF COURSE!  I’m having one too! 

See you all here in class tomorrow for the TELL ALL!

THE PROFESSORS

 

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

Yes it sure is!!   Welcome to class kids!

Today is the day we spend in class getting READY for the Teaser photo which will pop up tomorrow.   As of this moment in time, I don’t know if it will be a GUEST TEASER or a MOM TEASER so hang onto your hats – it could be anything.    One thing is FOR SURE though – you won’t know when the post will appear in your inbox.   It will come at a SURPRISE time.   Be alert.

The first person who comments on tomorrow’s blog is a winner – easy – they will get a special FIRST COMMENTER badge to show off to the universe!

Then of course it’s up to all of you to figure out WHERE the Teaser photo was taken and you already know that you have to guess the right TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE as well as the right STATE or COUNTRY depending on whether it’s in the USA or not!   SO, today is STUDY DAY………….it’s also “pump you up” day because our Teaser Cheerleader Suzie usually gives all of you some INSPIRATION with one of her famous (infamous?) cheers.    Suzie?  Are you ready?

Of course I’m ready
I’m always steady
I’ll shake my booty
And shout “ROOTY TOOTY”!
Last week we had an easy teaser
Lots of badges awarded – a real crowd pleaser!
This week might be a bit more rough
So buckle up – this might be tough
Study up tonight no parties allowed
Tomorrow let’s have an AWAKE class crowd!

Thanks Suzie – I’m sure everyone feels inspired now to show up tomorrow with their BRAIN batteries charged and ready to go!

Uhoh…….batteries overcharged maybe?

SO, we Professors will see you here bright and early or medium early or late early or WHENEVER the post goes live.    Sarge will be at the door to welcome you tomorrow!

Welcome you little rugrats!

Not sure if Miss Dingleberry has food plans for tomorrow but there’s always hope that she will come through again with some exciting goodie or another!    Meanwhile, class is DISMISSED for recess!

….zzzzzzz….

WAKE UP BARNEY!   TIME FOR RECESS!

Professor Angel Sammy and Assistant Prof Ted

Pre-Teaser Monday

Standard

Good Morning Class!

Please have a seat and prepare for class now.   Time to get serious because you know tomorrow will be the BIG TEST………..you will get a photo to examine and you will do your best to figure out WHERE that photo was taken!    Sounds easy right?   Well trust me – it isn’t!

Well of course you’re not scared – nothing to be SCARED about – just be READY, that’s all!

The post will go live at a surprise time – not the usual time – then you will need to QUICKLY comment on the post because if you are FIRST to comment tomorrow morning – you get this:

Wouldn’t THAT be swell???   Of course it would be!!!!    After that you get plenty of time to examine our Teaser photo and THEN you can make a guess.    You will have to tell Professor Teddy or myself WHERE the photo was snapped…….what city/village/town AND what country (if not in the USA) or what state (if in the USA) is depicted in the photo.   Challenging?  Yes indeed……but NOT SCARY!      It is another GUEST TEASER though – you know those have been TOUGH lately……………but still – don’t be afraid of a little TEASING!

HONEST!  Would I lie to you?  Heck no – this is a NO PRESSURE blog….it’s fun to guess OK?   Don’t lose sleep over it tonight!

That’s right………you should get plenty of rest so you’ll be READY FOR CLASS!

Now I thought we’d ask Suzie if she’d like to give you some inspiration for tomorrow…….you know how good she is at that right?   Right!    Hopefully she had a good time on her date last week and will be in a GOOD mood for her cheer…………..Suzie?   Come on in!

My date was kinda cute
He wore his birthday suit
He did have on a hat
And he was a big guy but not fat
I thought that he was tough
Until he took out his powder puff (!)
So I’m back on the dating scene
And Cheering in between
Make sure you’re in class tomorrow
Or your report card will cause some sorrow!
I’ll be back for cheers in the morning
Consider this your WARNING!

OK Suzie……….sorry you bummed out on a date………….AGAIN…………sooner or later though Mr. Right will come your way – I’m sure of it – right class??

Yes Sir, Professor Angel Sammy…….Yes Sir – we’re sure!

Just to refresh your memory, other badges you will be eligible for tomorrow include the “FIRST RIGHT GUESSER” badge for whoever guesses the Teaser FIRST:

A “RIGHT GUESSER” badge for everyone ELSE who guesses correctly but who were NOT the first:

AND for everyone who guesses INCORRECTLY:

 

So, now that you know what’s at stake, Assistant Professor Teddy and I are hoping to see a lot of bright shiny faces in class tomorrow morning – So go on out for recess but remember, no kicking, biting, shoving, hitting, elbowing, kneeing, slapping, screaming, yelling, or burping is allowed on the playground!

But by all means HAVE FUN!

Until tomorrow……..

Your Dynamic Teaching Duo,

Angel Prof Sam and Assistant Prof Ted

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Twice The Fun Thursday Is Here!

Today we will join Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop AND my brother Angel Sammy will showcase his weekly poem with something celebrating this week’s letter of the alphabet – “F” !

First my “thankfuls”………….if you’d like to share your thankfuls, hop on over to Brian’s and use the linky tool (click on his badge below to go to his blog) to tell us what you’re thankful for – add your blog link and we’ll see what you have to say.   We all have something to be thankful for….sometimes it doesn’t seem like we do, but if we think about it, there are things all around us to be thankful for.    I’m thankful that even though it’s hot as heck outside my Mom and Dad who do NOT like “hot”, are still taking me out for a walk when I demand ask them to.    They try to stay in the shade but I like a bit of sun myself and they will indulge me.   I’m so thankful for such understanding parents!

Now for Angel Sammy!!!

Here’s what Angel Sammy transmitted to me overnight from the Bridge for today’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday!     First of all, today’s letter is “F” and he told us we could all write a poem about ANYTHING starting with the letter “F” or use one or more of his “prompt” words – which were:

(1) Feast (2) Frog (3) Frosty (4) Family

Here’s what he sent to me through his Cloudtop Computer!

Hello My Friends!    Are you ready for some poetry?

Today we do “F” and I’m using one of my prompts – the word “FROG”……….why?   Well some of you who have been following this blog for a while know that for many years I had a good friend who lived under the steps of my front porch at home.   His name was Freddy and he was a frog.    I saw him every Spring for several years – although truth be told, whether it was Freddy or one of his relatives I’ll never know for sure.   ANYWAY, he was my inspiration – we used to have such fun!

“F”

“Freddy Frog”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell 7/20/17

An unlikely friend some would say

But friends we were back in the day

Every Spring he’d come out to greet me

We didn’t arrange it – he’d just plain meet me!

The front porch was where we usually met

My water bowl was there and Freddy would be WET.

I knew he’d bathe in my water bowl you see

The telltale puddle was the big clue for me……

Then off the porch we both would hop

Down the sidewalk we’d go – at the driveway we’d stop.

Our “game” started when Freddy sat still…..

I’d give him a pat using my most tender of skills!

He’d hop when I’d pat him – just once then he’d stop

Until I patted him again then he’d take one more hop!

We’d go on with that for about 20 feet…..

Mom would be laughing as we moved down the street…..

Then he’d hop into the grass and go into the clover…..

That was the big clue that our game was over. 

We sometimes would skip the game and just sit with each other

Then a car would go by and he’d run quick for cover.

One year he didn’t come and I worried and worried

Did an animal go after him and away he scurried?

By then I was older and not going out as much

Perhaps I’ll look him up at the Bridge and get back in touch!!

I hope some of you also wrote a poem this week and if you did, please leave your blog link in my comments here so we can follow and read your poem OR you can even write your poem in my comments if you like.   It’s fun to write a poem – it doesn’t even have to rhyme….it can be haiku or ANY form of poetry too.   Silly or serious, doesn’t matter.   Just spread your wings and try to write a poem because you just might LIKE IT!     Here are your prompt words for NEXT week’s Poetic Thursday.    Remember, you can write about any “G” word or use one or more of these prompts!!

(1) Garden (2) Giggle (3) Groceries (4) Grandma

Until then my friends – take care of yourselves and enjoy every day!

See you all tomorrow for Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop and whatever else I can think of to say in my blog!  

LOVE, Teddy

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off To School We Go!

Good Morning Class!

GOOD MORNING TEACHERS!

Time to put our comic books, and electrical devices aside and concentrate on things like GEOGRAPHY!     This week we will be having another GUEST TEASER and you know – well I think you know by now anyway – that it means a CHALLENGE most likely right?   Well that may be but the FIRST and FOREMOST thing I want to remind you is that whoever shows up FIRST tomorrow when the Teaser Blog Post goes LIVE and comments – will win something!    Yep – first commenter or commenters (if more than one comments in first 60 seconds) will get one of these:

SO BE ALERT!

You call that ALERT?????

Anyway, you can win a badge from us to display on your blog or your Facebook page or wherever you do your social thing – showing the world that you know your stuff when it comes to Professor Angel Sammy and Assistant Prof Teddy’s TEASER PHOTOS!

Yeah so be here in class on time tomorrow – and for you smarty pants who asked about my STRAINED LIGAMENT from doing my cheer – YES I’m all better now thank you!

I thought maybe we’d see if SuzieQ would like to join us and PUMP UP the excitement factor for you relative to tomorrow’s Teaser……………so HEEEEEEEERE’S Suzie!

We’re not about photography
We’re totally in to geography
We test your brains once a week
Some are DEAD, some make me shriek!
Whatever you do you must not miss
A chance to hear me yell and hiss
So get your bums in your desk chairs tomorrow
Or I’ll make sure your day is full of pain and sorrow!!

Suzie I think you forgot to take your MEDICATION this morning…….you have a bit of a mean streak today – purrrhaps when Miss Dingleberry brings in her cafeteria surprise it will cheer everyone INCLUDING you, up?

Alright you hooligans, single file and no grabby hands!!

YOU ONLY GET ONE!   YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE

EITHER A BANANA SPLIT OR

STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE!!   GOT IT?   GOOD!

Alright class, you heard what Miss Dingleberry said……………………take your treat out in the playground and play nice………….you can drip ice cream all over the playground instead of in the classroom!!!

Do we get bibs?

No Bobby….you’re on your own – you just have to be CAREFUL OK?

Have Fun Kids and see you tomorrow! 

The Profs!

P.S.  Don’t forget class time tomorrow will be DIFFERENT than today – it will be a surprise time!
