A Baconian Morning

Standard

Good Morning From Baconia!

Things are quiet in the Land of Bacon – which is the purrrrfect way to start a Caturday if there ever was one right?    The Royal Cook has rustled up some goodies for all of us to enjoy to start our day off with the usual BANG!     Help yourself to the buffet then have a seat and nosh away on the delightful delights here in the palace of the King of Bacon-land!     There are mimosas and hot chocolate to top it all off…….

Now that you’ve piled up your plate – come and join me and Angel Sammy at the table !!!!

If you feel just a tad overloaded with bacon or breakfast (or both) you are welcome to help yourself to one of the many guest rooms in the Castle of Baconia!  

 

Trust me – these are comfy!

Have we started your day off with a SMILE???     Hope so.     Remember, we do this every Caturday in the Land of Baconia……………..at least as long as I’m KING we do!!!!!

Ahhh…it’s good to be King (Angel Sammy said so!)

Angel Sammy may be gone but he’s the Permanent President of CLUB BACON!  Help yourself to the badge to show you’re a fan!

Oh and IN CASE you haven’t heard…..today is Cat World Domination Day!   (at my house every day is……) This is a fabulous celebration started by Angel Sammy’s friend Sparkle and carried on in the tradition by Summer…….if you click her  badge below you can join in the fun at Summer’s blog!!

Cats RULE!!

Friendly Friday Fill-Ins

Standard

Let’s Do This!

Here we are again – arriving at a Friday which means Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop!   This one is co-hosted by 15andmeowing AND McguffysReader.    If you click the badge above you will go to McGuffy’s and you can use the LINKY tool to enter your blog post link and have some fun with us!

Here are the questions for today – two from each of our hosts!    Mom gets the honor today – these are mostly “peopleized” questions so she’s the STAR today and her fill-ins are in RED.

1. A recurring dream I have is that I’m back in school (not sure if grade school or high school) and can’t remember WHERE my next class is!

2. Turn a rainy day into a day to catch up on reading or napping or getting in touch with old friends.

3. My small spot of poison ivy is driving me crazy!

4. Lately, I have been making more “light” meals because it’s been so hot .

Thanks Mom!    I have to say that it’s PROBABLY  my fault you got poison ivy – you’re always picking me up out in the yard when it’s time to come back inside on our walks and often I’ve been digging around in the leaves/greenery out there!    Sorry about that……..
I’ve been hearing some rumors that Mom is going to desert me on Monday to visit her sister – my Auntie Carol and her two pups.   One of her pups is Casey, and he’s just a baby – and quite small – and he’s able to get through the deck railings on Auntie Carol’s front deck which is where he and his brother Toby play!    Not good – he will run run run run like a crazy boy if he gets loose.   So Auntie Carol put one of those “blow up” collars on him like we have to wear after we’ve had a little “surgery” at the V.E.T./Stabby place.    It works perfectly – he can’t get through the rails!   Smart huh?
Sorry Casey Dood but you’re not gonna be escaping again with THAT thing on!!!    Casey is an “Imperial Shih Tzu” which is a SMALL sized Shih Tzu…….his brother Toby is the black/white Shih Tzu behind him.   Casey was almost BLACK until he had his first puppy cut – now he’s kind of taupe/gold/gray!    Mom will get to see him Monday.
Tomorrow is Bacon Caturday………….hope you’re ready for that…………..I know I sure am………………..so is Angel Sammy – he still visits me every single night when I’m asleep teaching me things and telling me things to help me.    I wish he was HERE for real but it’s not so bad having an Angel On My Shoulder either…….!!!

GIMME DAT!!

Love, Teddy

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

It’s Double Duty Day! 

Thankful Thursday and

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

First let’s talk about being thankful – because we are – all of us!   I’m thankful to be here in this home with my two parents who love me and spoil me rotten (Sammy told me they would!) and they think they are lucky to have found me at the shelter where they found Sammy so long ago…….(what they don’t realize is that Sammy arranged that to happen on purpose!).    Also I’m thankful that Mom and Dad let me go for long walks on my leash where I can explore the whole big yard and woods……….I love digging in the mulch especially!    Tee Hee      Would you like to tell the world how thankful you are?    Then click the above badge and go to Brian’s blog where you can join in the THANKFUL hop – use his Linky Tool, enter your blog address, post about what you’re thankful for and THAT’S IT!

The other thing we do on Thursdays is let my Angel brother Sammy continue with something he did before he left for the Bridge last December – write poetry together!!!     We are on our THIRD go-thru of the alphabet now and this week’s letter is:

“B” !!  

Today you can write a poem about ANY word/thing that starts with the letter “B” OR you can use one of the prompt words that Angel Sammy gave us LAST Thursday for this week – what were they???

(1) Banana  (2) Bath  (3) Brave or (4) Balloon

Here’s the post Angel Sammy transmitted to me on my computer overnight!!!

Hello My Sweet Friends!  Greetings from the Rainbow Bridge!   I wrote my poem last night and sent it to Teddy to share with you today – I hope you wrote a “B” poem too!   Remember you can write about anything you want starting with a “B” or you can use one of my prompts.   I’m using the prompt “Bath”!

“Bath”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell 6-22-17

Some cats really love to get wet

But drinking from my bowl is as close as I’d get!

The first day I came to live in my house

When I was tiny – small as a mouse!

Mom said at the shelter I’d gotten quite stinky….

So she got baby shampoo and a cloth and put me in the sinky!

She washed me gently but I was VERY unhappy

She tried to clean me quickly and make it snappy!

She rinsed me off and sat with me on the floor

She kissed me and said that I was stinky no more!

A nice warm towel and Moms lap both felt good

I knew I’d landed in a GREAT neighborhood…….

That bath was the ONLY one that I ever had

I kept myself immaculate and never was bad

I kept my furs neat and clean as can be

Right up to the day that my soul was set free………

(p.s. we don’t need baths at the Bridge!!!!)

I hope all of you wrote a poem today to share with us – you can put it in the comments here on the blog OR give us the link to your “B” poem in my comments and we’ll follow you to read it!!    Next week we will do a “C” poem……………..you can write about ANYTHING starting with the letter “C” or you can use one of next week’s PROMPTS from me here at the Bridge – ready?   Here they are:

(1) Car  (2) Camera  (3) Cookie  (4) Carpet

OK?   I hope to see you next week – I’ll have another poem direct from the Rainbow Bridge for you and I hope you have something to share with all of us too!    Until then:

Love and Light From Angel Sammy

Thanks Angel Sammy…………..I like your poem.  Know what?   Even though Mom and Dad got me from the same shelter they did NOT give me a bath when they got me home that first day – I guess I wasn’t stinky!!!!

See You All Next Thursday!

Love, Teddy

Standard

Good Morning Class!

Ah yes………….another TELL ALL session where we find out ALL the info regarding yesterday’s photo – who sent it in and who guessed it right (and who didn’t!).    Is everyone settled down in their seats and ready to begin class?

Good Morning Professor Sammy!

Alright – then we will begin………………..first of all, our FIRST COMMENTER was actually TWO FIRSTS……….within the first 60 seconds two of you were right there commenting and who were those lucky peeps you ask?????

Miss Annie of Animal Couriers AND the Kitties Blue of The Cat On My Head

THIS IS FOR BOTH OF YOU!

Then we come to the BIGGIE – the photo from our Guest Teaser!     Let me tell you FIRST of all who that was – it was Miss Sharon from Friends Furever and this is the photo she sent in:

So what’s the SCOOP on this photo?   It is a photo taken from the Colorado Springs Airport of the amazingly beautiful Pike’s Peak!!!    Miss Sharon, this is for you:

For Friends Furever’s Teaser photo of 6/20/17

YAY!

Now, who was the very first to guess right yesterday and tell us this was Pike’s Peak in Colorado???????   It was…………………….KITTIES BLUE at The Cat On My Head and that means they are DOUBLE WINNERS today………..one of the FIRST COMMENTERS and the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!   Can I get a cheer for them??????

I think Suzie is going to give us a cheer later too but for now, let’s present the FIRST RIGHT GUESSERS badge to Kitties Blue shall we?????

YAY!

There were some OTHERS who guessed Pike’s Peak too – and each of you who did get one of these little gems!

AND – those of you who guessed but were WRONG………..well………..you know………you don’t go away empty handed either because you get a GREENIE:

BIG CHEER FOR EVERYONE!  Suzie would you like to do the honors?

Animal Couriers and Kitties Blue
You guys were FAST and we’re proud of you!
You slept by your computers so you could be FIRST
Then everyone after you felt like they’d been cursed!
I kept an eye out to see who’d guess right
And someone did that EARLY – before day was night!
Who was the lucky ducky who was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER?
Her name is Miss Janet and she’s a real snappy dresser!
She’s the Mom for The Kitties Blue
She didn’t win ONE badge today – she won TWO!
Let’s all clap and give her a cheer
Or better yet, hand her an ice cold beer!!!!!

 

Uhhh…………thanks you Suzie!   Good job………………I hope our winners appreciate that you worked so hard on your INVENTIVE and INSPIRING cheer!

Didn’t she do a good job class?

Uhhhhh………..well…………..uh huh……

OK OK………….let’s move on and just say THANK YOU STUDENTS for being here today and let’s look forward to next week when we will again show you a real stumper of a photo and you will get to figure out where in the world it was taken!    Who knows – next week YOU might be the winner!!!

Good for you!

Now, shall we REALLY begin class?   OK – today we have a Guest Teaser for you to peruse/study/agonize over and the very FIRST person to guess WHERE this photo was taken will win this:

You know you want this badge – especially if you’ve NEVER won one of them before so study hard AND remember EVERYONE that you MUST guess WHAT ARE WE SEEING IN THIS PHOTO and where was it taken?    I need the State (if USA) or Country (if NOT USA) !!!!    Got it?

To pump you all up before our Security Guard comes to display today’s photo, let’s bring Suzie in for another cheer………..she got your blood pumping yesterday with her Pre-Tease Monday cheer right?   Let’s hope it works again today!

I’m a little bit MAD
About that date that I HAD
The football player was mean
And a real skinny string bean
No muscles and no six-pack
No meat on his rib rack!
No more blind dates for me
My dates from now on I’ll SEE
I’ll try not to be grumpy
Though my “dating road” is bumpy
Let’s give this teaser a try
And I’ll try hard not to cry!
sniff……………

Gosh Suzie – sorry your big date didn’t work out.   Neither did Sarge’s………….!

Yeah well he’s a million years older than me so I’m not interested in him but I wish him luck……maybe if he SMILED????!!!!!

OK – let’s get back to the Teaser…………..Mr. Silver Briefcast/Security Guard/State Trooper guy – please come on down and show us today’s Teaser!!

I’ve got the photo here Professor Sam!

Where Was this Photo snapped? 

OK – you’re on your own kiddos…………study and guess and hopefully you can win a badge……………….!    No matter whether you win or lose you still get SOMETHING – it might be a GREENIE but it’s something!

REMEMBER WHAT YOU CAN WIN…………………………………………………….

If you DO guess correctly and you’re FIRST to do so you get this:

If you guess correctly BUT you’re not first you get this:

SEE????  EVERYBODY WINS!

Tomorrow in class we’ll hand out all the badges to our various winners AND we’ll also tell you who our GUEST TEASER was…………….now won’t that just be FUN FUN FUN?

If you say so Professor Sammy

Assistant Professor Teddy and I will look for you in class tomorrow – don’t be late or Sarge just might be waiting for you at the school room door………….or maybe Miss Dingleberry will be there which just MIGHT be worse!

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

Have A Seat Students!

Another week begins and yet again it’s the “day before the Teaser” here at Ding Dong School.    Yep – time for us to at least START getting our brains tuned into geography and the task ahead of figuring out where a photo was taken.    Where in this WIDE WIDE world was “someone” when they took a photo of where they were visiting?!?!?!

We will have a Guest Teaser tomorrow – a photo submitted by ONE OF YOU to our “Teaser Department” here at the School – but the most important thing is to remember when you arrive here at school tomorrow – try to comment right away because you might be the FIRST COMMENTER and that means you MIGHT win a badge to celebrate that honor!  WHEEEE!

Some of you may already know that TODAY is “International Box Day” in the blogosphere – most of us who are in the category of MEOW/Cat are cardboard box fans and we celebrate that every year (any excuse to have a celebration you know – we are true party animals…..).

I’m only mentioning Box Day because Suzie has chosen to feature that special day in her cheer for you this morning.

Suzie would you care to come in and scream your cheer out for everyone????

It’s Box Day, Box Day
You’ve got a head full of rocks day!
Boxes are great for perfect snoozing
CATillacs are nice for luxury cruising
If you’re not SHARP tomorrow
You might be LOSING –
So study up tonight and be sharp as a tack
Or you’ll be so embarrassed that you might not come back!

 

Thanks Suzie………..you started out talking about boxes then moved onto the piece de resistance (oui oui!) which is TEASER!    Everyone remember the post tomorrow will pop up at some surprise time – not the regular time.

Assistant Professor Teddy and I hope that you will take Teaser seriously and be alert and ready to try and figure out tomorrow’s Teaser photo – maybe we’ll have a new winner this week or maybe it will be one of our “Frequent Flyers” in the winning column?    It’s all up to YOU!!!!!!

No pressure though………

Just get here when you can and GUESS!     We will see you all here tomorrow at an UNKNOWN TIME!     Get your rest tonight!

CLASS DISMISSED

P.S.   We just were catching up on blogs and saw that one of our friends, Minko, has passed over to the Rainbow Bridge on Father’s Day…………………we send big hugs to his family – and if you click on the beautiful badge below, you can visit his blog to leave a message if you wish…………

Sunday Selfie for Father’s Day

Standard

Happy Father’s Day!

Today we are again participating in The Cat On My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop but of course we’re honoring our Dad at the same time………………..our selfie today is dedicated to him………..even though one of us has gone to the Rainbow Bridge, you will always be our Dad.

If you’d like to visit The Cat On My Head to join in the hop with the LINKY tool, please do!   The more the merrier…………….just click their badge below to go!

This is the first Father’s Day that Dad hasn’t had a card and present from Angel Sammy – and Sammy always left him a secret special note in the tiny little “journal” that Dad keeps by his recliner in the Family Room.    I almost put a note in there for him like Angel Sammy used to but somehow it just didn’t seem right………that was between Dad and Sam………..instead, I got him a special card celebrating OUR first Father’s Day together which I gave him this morning along with his present.

Always and Forever…….Angel Sammy and Teddy

I Miss You Pop-Pop…………

 

 

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Thankful Thursday Time

(then we’ll be creatively poetic!)

Time again to join Brian’s “Thankful Thursday” blog hop – and you can too if you just click the badge above and use the LINKY tool when you arrive to add your blog link and SHARE!   Today I’m thankful for bunches of things………..I’m thankful that I have a COOL house to live in because it’s been unbelievably HOT around here and it makes me worry about all the animals that don’t have a home to be safe and cool in.   I know Angel Sammy is cool – he says it’s perfect temperature all the time at the Rainbow Bridge……!    We are lucky AND we are thankful.    I can stretch out in Mom’s office and enjoy the perfect temperature…………..

Being CUTE before I went over to my beat up kitty cube to snooze…..

In La La Land snoozing………

Now for Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday and today is the FIRST DAY so we will start the alphabet ALLLLLL over again for the THIRD time!    You have a choice of doing a poem about ANYTHING you pick which starts with the letter “A”, OR, using one of Angel Sammy’s prompt words to write your poem about for “A”.    The words he gave us last week are:

(1)  ANTS   (2)  ANGER  (3) APPLES  (4) ANKLES

Sammy decided to do a poem with one of the prompts and chose ANKLES!

“A”

Ankles

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 6/15/17

When I was just a little kit

It’s Mommy’s ankles that took a hit

I’d wait for her to walk on by

Then leap and grab a leg in a flash of an eye!

I’d wrap my arms and hold on tight

Then bite her ankle with all my might!

I know it was mean but it sure was fun

Mom would usually laugh – THEN RUN!!!!

What is it about an ankle that’s hard to resist?

I’m just not sure but I will insist

That kitties deserve a good ankle bitey

To settle for less just wouldn’t be righty!

 

HAHA Angel Sammy – that was a good one………………..!!    I can’t wait to read everyone else’s poem today and you all can give us your blog link to your poem in our comments OR even compose and show off your poem in our comments…..but for heavens’ sake, give writing a poem a try because it’s GOOD for your creativity and FUN for us to read!

Angel Sammy gave me four prompt words for NEXT week’s poetry challenge which will be with the letter “B”………………remember you can do ANY “B” word for your poem or use one of his prompts – it doesn’t matter – just write!

(1)  BANANA (2)  BATH  (3)  BRAVE  (4)  BALLOON

Now, what’s tomorrow???

FRIENDLY FILL-IN FRIDAY with co-hosts 15andMeowing and McGuffy’s Reader…….see you then!

Angel Sammy and Teddy too…………….

 

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Happy Wednesday Class!  

Wasn’t that a great Teaser yesterday???   We thought so – it seems it was a real puzzler for a lot of you but not for our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!    I’ll give you the scoop on that in a minute but first, let’s talk FIRST COMMENTER……………who was ready with a comment the minute we went live yesterday (well, not THE minute but in the first few minutes anyway) – it was:

Miss Csilla of Kolytyi !!

This is for you Miss Csilla

I also must tell you that our Cafeteria Snoopervisor Miss Dingleberry said you little piggies ate ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the pizza up yesterday and she is sure there was rampant indigestion all around the world because you didn’t have just one slice – you went nuts and all of those pizzas were GONE!

Sarge still hasn’t forgiven us for showing that old photo of him with hair being his Grumpy Old Self…………right Sarge??

Yeah right…..but it did get me a date – someone who saw the photo called me and I’m meeting her for a meowgarita tonight!

So happy we could help you find a date Sarge………maybe THAT will make you less grumpy??????

Let’s tell you who our wonderful Guest Teaser was AND where the photo was taken shall we?????????  Oh lets!    A big thank you to our Guest:

MISS JACKIE from Memories of Flynn and Eric – the Mom of Angel Flynn and Angel Eric!    

Here’s the photo she shared with us……………..

Gorgeous photo which she took while on a recent cruise through the British Isles…………and this is Saint Peter Port in Guernsey in the Channel Islands!!!    The cruise ship can’t dock at port but you can take a small boat from the ship into port…….isn’t it a beautiful view?    The castle on the left of the photo is “Castle Cornet”…………………

This is for you Miss Jackie for being our Guest Teaser

For Jackie’s photo for our Teaser of 6/13/17

Now I suppose you’d like to know WHO was our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER yesterday too………..Well I think the name of our winner will ring a bell – he’s fast catching up to his Angel brother Easy on the HIT PARADE OF WINNERS here –

Our friend Da Phenny was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!!!!

Woo Hoo Da Phenny!    Way to go my friend………………and I believe we had a couple of others who guessed Guernsey, UK too…………………you get this:

But by far the most popular badge yesterday (ahem) was the famous GREENIE which goes to all those who guessed incorrectly!

Don’t Forget To Copy Your Badge and Display it with PRIDE!!!!!!

Suzie asked if she could do a cheer for you today – sometimes she does on the Tell All Day and sometimes she’s busy with a hot date or a therapy class or a fitting for a new uniform but today she wants to cheer…..Suzie?

Guernsey is a type of cow
But also a place you tell me now?
Alright thanks I learned something new
Thanks Miss Jackie – this cheer’s for you!
I also cheer for Csilla and Phenny
They both get badges worth more than a penny!
Sell them on eBay and make a buck
Then come back next week again and try your luck!
Now excuse me please cuz I’ve gotta go
My boyfriends’ taking me to the early show
See you next week and be on time
To be late is a TEASER CRIME!

Thanks Suzie…..you outdid yourself today………………..!!!

Assistant Professor Teddy and I hope that you enjoy Tuesday Teasers……….we sure do.    If you’d like to proclaim your fondness for my Teaser challenges every week, you can feel free to snatch this badge for your blog sidebar or WHATEVER……………….and we will look for you next week!!!

Class Dismissed!  

Hugs, Angel Prof Sammy and Teddy too

P.S.

Happy Flag Day…..long may she wave

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

School Is In Session!

Time to settle into your school desk seats so we can talk about tomorrow’s GEOGRAPHY TEST.    You know that’s what it’s all about right?    Trying to use your knowledge of people, places, and things – AND a healthy dose of good luck – to get the Tuesday Teaser right…..guess CORRECTLY where the photo was taken.    Not an easy task some Tuesdays but one that’s FUN and one that challenges your BRAINS and keeps you ALERT!    Right students???

Yes Sir Professor!!

So shall we begin?    We have a GUEST TEASER again for tomorrow – that’s a photo of course that someone we know has submitted and we hope you have some fun figuring this one out as always.   How it will work is as always……………when you get here tomorrow to class, you need to COMMENT on the blog because you just might be the FIRST to do that and if you are, you get a special badge to show off!

Then you can start studying the photo that we show…………..and of course if you guess and are RIGHT – and are FIRST to be RIGHT you get a special badge but even if you aren’t FIRST but you guess correctly you will win a badge so that’s pretty cool right?    If you guess incorrectly you still get one of our famous GREENIES to show off……….you can’t go wrong!

Suzie wanted to do a cheer for you since she’s our official Teaser Class Cheerleader – she hopes it fires you up for tomorrow………and knowing Suzie, there will be fire because she’s HOT HOT HOT when she cheers!

Tuesday Tuesday comin’ tomorrow
Time for giggles not time for sorrow
Unless you guess and you’re not right
Then you probably won’t sleep tomorrow night
Don’t disappoint me and skip the class
Cuz if you do, I’ll kick your lunchbox…….(tee hee)

Thanks Suzie…………..I do think you got everyone well prepared mentally for tomorrow………….you never let us down!

Tomorrow in class it’s PIZZA DAY………….so after we show you the Teaser photos and we are ready to go out to the playground for recess, Mrs. Dingleberry, our Cafeteria Supervisor, will wheel in some pizzas for you to snack on!

Yep – she’s a little bit scary but she makes a dy-no-mite pizza!!!!

Anybody have any questions?

Yes Bobby?????

You forgot to tell everyone that the Teaser post pops up at a different time than your other posts Professor Sammy…….you always tell everyone that!

Why yes Tommy you’re right – I clearly forgot to mention that and I thank you for pointing that out………………..the post will be at a SPECIAL time tomorrow so everyone should sleep by their computers or ipads or iphones or WHATEVER tonight so when we pop into the inbox, you’ll be FIRST here!

My able Assistant Professor Teddy and I will see you tomorrow!

Angel Professor Sammy
