Gather Round Class!

Time for class and this is the one where we hand out AWARDS in the form of adorable TEASER BADGES – you know you want one right?   Well we DO have some winners this week and I’ll spill those beans in a minute.   BUT FIRST……………….

Scuze me Prof but someone told me you spilled something in here?   Beans?

No Miss – that was just a figure of speech – there were no spills in here!  Honest!

Whew!  I guess I need to be careful what I say – maybe our classroom is bugged?!?!?!    EEEK!

Yesterday we had a THREE WAY TIE for FIRST COMMENTER……………….we often have more than one in the first sixty seconds but we know how TIRED Suzie gets having to include FIVE First Commenters in her cheer so she should be fairly pleased to only have THREE this week.

CarolMaeWy, Oliver/Calvin, Animal Couriers

Three FIRST COMMENTERS on Teaser of 10/10/17! CarolMaeWY, Calvin/Oliver and Animal Couriers!

Concatulations!

ANYWAY, let’s show the photos from yesterday before we go any further shall we??

Beautiful spot right?   We agree.   Where and who – that’s what you want to know right?   Well, first of all THANK YOU to our Guest Teaser for these photos!

The Cat On My Head

This is for you with our thanks!

Thanks to Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head for our Teaser Photo of 10/10/17

Where did they take this photo?    In Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.    This is the beautiful Mission San Carlos Borromeo del rio Carmelo and if you CLICK HERE you can get some interesting facts about this Mission which was started in 1770.    We have three more photos that The Cat on My Head sent of the Mission:

Who was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER?

CarolMaeWy

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on Sammy and Teddy’s Teaser of 10/10/17

We also had a couple of other RIGHT GUESSERS – and you all get this!!

I was RIGHT on the Teaser of 10/10/17but I was NOT First!

And if you guessed but were WRONG, this is for you!!

I didn’t guess RIGHT on the Teaser of 10/10/17 but I tried!

Let’s bring on Suzie for a rousing cheer to celebrate our winners today shall we???  Oh yes – let’s!!!!!

GOOOOOO SUZIE!

C’mon don’t be choosy
It’s time for a little bit of Suzie!
Three FIRST COMMENTERS this week
Give Carol, Oliver/Calvin and Animal Couriers a tweak on the cheek!
Our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was one of those
CarolMayWy was on her toes!
She gets two badges whoopy doooo
Next week the lucky one COULD BE YOU!!!!
The cafeteria didn’t bring us a snack
Miss Dingleberry is a big quack.
Don’t tell her what I said
Her punishment for me I would DREAD!

Thank you Suzie…………you never let us down………you finish off Teaser week with a flourish every time!    Hope you all enjoyed this week’s TEASER time.

Don’t forget that for Teaser Class on Tuesday, October 31st – Halloween – if you send us in email a photo of you in your Halloween costume (real or photoshopped) we will post it here in class on that day!   We’ll parade around in our Halloween finery…..and you know Miss Dingleberry will have some kind of spooky snack for us that day too!   Your deadline to submit your photo is Sunday, October 29th!!! 

Professor Count Tedula will be here…….!!  So will I !!

Your Teaser Professors, Sam and Ted

Major Announcement!

Announcements are scary…..

Well this one isn’t SCARY but it is BIG – has to do with next week’s TEASER – we won’t have one!   WHAT????

HUH??

Yep – no foolin!   Mom and Dad are taking a few days off and NOT taking a laptop so we will not have a Teaser next week since Mom needs to be PRESENT to let people know who wins what!   

IT’s been a long time since we didn’t do a Teaser……will you have TEASER WITHDRAWAL???????

We Will!

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

52

It’s a “Two-Fer” Day! 

We’re being THANKFUL with Brian and POETIC with Angel Sam

First up – Thankful Thursday which is hosted by my buddy Brian – if you click his BADGE you can visit his blog, and use his LINKY tool to hook up your “Thankful” post to the Hop.   We share all our thankfuls every Thursday.   After such a tough and sad week with the tragedy in Las Vegas all I can say is that I know everyone there was THANKFUL that there were so many concert attendees as well as First Responders who helped EVERYONE who needed it……..we are so sad for those who were killed and those who were wounded.   It breaks our hearts………….truly.

On a lighter note, my Angel brother Sammy didn’t let me down this week – last night he transmitted via his trusty computer which he took with him to the Rainbow Bridge when he left in December – his weekly THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAY poem and post…………..and HERE it is!!

♥♥♥♥

Greetings from the Rainbow Bridge my friends……..

We’re working our way down (up?) the alphabet to the end – this week we’re all writing poems about ANYTHING that starts with the letter “Q”………….I did give you some prompts if you needed them to help get your creativity jump-started last week……….these were the prompts which you could use if you needed to!

(1) Quiet (2) Quarrel (3) Q-Tip (4) Quack

If you wrote a poem this week, you can put your blog link in the comments here and we’ll follow the link and read your MASTERPIECE or you can even just type your poem in our comments and we’ll read it here!    I hope you wrote something though – if I can write poetry my friends, YOU can write poetry.  Give it a try – you might surprise yourself!!!!

“Quiet”

By Sammy Kimmell, October 5, 2017

Late at night when you’ve gone to bed

You might have visions of me in your head

In that twilight time before you sleep

We Angels visit – into your beds we creep!

We snuggle up close and let you know

We miss you too – it’s love we show………

We’re quiet and careful not to wake you up!

We won’t knock over the clock or your water cup!

We just want to be with you for a little while

Even though you’re asleep, we can see your smile….

We cannot stay, we must all be quick…..

But on your hand or your cheek we might give a lick!

A kiss of love, a promise that we will keep

To be with you on your journey for your FINAL SLEEP………….

 

We Angels will be with you – our beloved humans – when your turn comes……it’s what we do……it’s our turn to take care of YOU like you took care of us when we were with you.   Now if that’s not TRUE LOVE, what is????   

Next week we will be celebrating the letter “R” and I’ll give you four prompt words to help you get your imagination going and thinking of what YOU will write about next Thursday!   Ready?

(1) Rain (2) Run (3) Ruin (4) Rabbit

Maybe those will give you some ideas………..you can write about ANYTHING that starts with an “R” though………use your imagination – we animals have good imaginations !!!!    I hope you have a great week and I’ll look forward to reading your poetry next Thursday!    Give it a try – you might just have FUN writing a poem!!

I Love and Miss You All,

Angel Sammy

♥♥♥♥

Thanks dear brother……………..I know you’ll inspire at least a couple of our friends to give writing a poem for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday a whirl next week!    Meanwhile, thanks to everybody for stopping by today…………we hope you have a THANKFUL and POETIC day today!

Yep – it’s me – with my torn up red cube AND my “Mr. Rag” that is my best buddy and pal

Love, Teddy the Butter Bean

Teaser Tuesday

Time For Class !

Put on those thinking cats!  You’re gonna need ’em!

BUT FIRST – don’t forget to comment NOW on this post – you might be FIRST COMMENTER!

Yep you better take a second to visit the comment area and say ANYTHING then come back to your desk……………whoever is first (or whoever comments in the first 60 seconds) will win this:

Now I think we need to move on with class and get down to BUSINESS!    Just in case you’re new in class OR have slept through the rules, here they are:

  1. When you make a guess where the TEASER photo was taken, you must tell us the TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE where it was taken as well as the STATE (if in USA) or COUNTRY (if not in USA) where it was snapped.
  2. We ask that you don’t use GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH or some other similar program/help and that you simply look at the photo and make your best guess!!!!   It’s more fun that way – and everyone has the same chance of winning FIRST RIGHT GUESSER or RIGHT GUESSER.   It’s almost like cheating to use help right?????

That’s it – no other rules – just do your best and we’ll award badges as they are earned!!

WORKS FOR ME!

That reminds me – everyone should wear a costume to our Halloween Teaser class on October 31st…………..AND if you send the photo of you in your costume to ME I’ll post them during class so everyone can see how fabulous you look!   Cool?  Cool!

ON WITH THE SHOW……………..Suzie – you’re up girl – shake your booty for class – that will wake them up!

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Todays Teaser is way cool
It’s tough so try not to drool
If you are a winner my dear
Tomorrow you’ll be in my CHEER!
I hope that you studied your books
Or I’ll give you one of my “looks”!
You don’t want the evil eye
So give guessing right a TRY!
I wish I could give you a clue
But I’d be fired from my job if I do!

Thanks Suzie!!!!    Let’s bring in our fabulous Security Guard who has faithfully guarded the Teaser photo since last week – now he can unlock the briefcase from his wrist and take a proper bath or shower…….tough to do that with a suitcase strapped to your arm isn’t it!!!!

YES – I’m anxious for that bath…….!!!! Here’s this week’s photo Professor!

Your turn now – WHERE WAS THIS TAKEN?????

Here’s what’s up for grabs today in the way of badges!

Let’s see who wins what this week shall we!   Tomorrow we will have our TEASER TELL ALL post and you’ll find out!   Meanwhile, it’s about time for recess – are you ready for that???

YES PLEASE !

Yeah, I’ve got a recess snack for you…..but it’s just cookies and juice so don’t get TOO excited!

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

Thank you Miss Dingleberry and Professor Sam and Ted!

Professor Angel Sammy and Assistant Prof Teddy

 

Pre-Teaser Monday

33

Time for School!!!

Don’t let the bell stop ringing and find you still running down the hall to class!!

Sarge is not amused when kids are LATE……!!!

Good thing we got here on time huh?  Gosh Norman – you practicing for Halloween or are you channeling Elvis this morning?   And how about you Randy – you know this isn’t Hogwarts School right?????    You guys better watch out – the Professors are coming down the hall!!!!!

Good Morning Class!   Time to get ready for your test tomorrow.  

I see a few of you are “testing” out your Halloween outfits……Well as you know, this year Halloween is on a TEASER TUESDAY – the 31st so we WILL be wearing Halloween outfits to school that day, and that goes for teachers too!

Let’s talk Teaser now……….tomorrow we will be showing a photo to everyone and it will be up to YOU to figure out where the photo was taken…………..here are the rules for the fun!

  1. When you make a guess as to where the photo was snapped you must tell us what TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE as well as what STATE (if USA) or COUNTRY (if not USA) the photo was taken.  OK?
  2. We always ask everyone not to use any kind of online help when they guess – using GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH or any other program that you can just load up the photo and be TOLD where it was taken – well – that just plain is no fair now is it?!?!    We want you to use your imagination, use your mind, use your brains, and FIGURE IT OUT ON YOUR OWN!!

We also have a contest FIRST THING when you arrive tomorrow – you get a special BADGE if you are the FIRST TO COMMENT on the post in the morning!   Last week we had FIVE FIRST COMMENTERS all chiming in within the very first sixty seconds after we went live!   FIVE!    No way can we beat that record…..or can we????!!!    Anyway, make sure and comment when you get here before you sit down in your desk OK?     You will get this if you are first (or one of the first):

Then on Wednesday you will find out who our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was, what other students ALSO guessed RIGHT but weren’t FIRST, and of course who guessed INCORRECTLY and win the GREENIE badge!

Now to get you all FIRED UP and in the mood for tomorrow’s GUESSING, let’s see if Suzie has recovered from her bumper crop of FIRST COMMENTERS last week and is ready to PUMP UP THE VOLUME!

Last Tuesday wore me out
I could barely move or shout
This week I’m feeling rested
I’m ready to be tested!
So mind your P’s and Q’s
And prepare to look for clues
The photo might be tricky
But you students can’t be picky
Whatever the Profs want to show
You guys just better KNOW!
Rest up and no late parties
Be on time and show off your smarties!!!!

Thanks Suzie!   We’ll see what happens in the morning when we our Teaser post goes live – – – oh yeah – – – I forgot to tell all of you if you don’t already know that we post the Teaser Post at an UNKNOWN TIME – We know when we’ll post it but YOU won’t……….it won’t be the regular blog post time – OH NO THAT WOULD BE TOO EASY!    It’s a surprise time so WATCH OUT!

If Miss Dingleberry is in a good mood tomorrow she MIGHT have a pre-recess snack for you.  

No promises though – you know how she is!

Sleep Well Students!  

Professor Angel Sam and Assistant Ted

 

 

Early Fall Bacon Harvest!

54

 

Welcome to Angel Sam and Ted’s

Fall Bacon Harvest!

Welcome friends and neighbors – come on in and see what we’ve been up to since early this morning here in the Greenhouse……….I guess you got here by following the road I told you about……sure is a pretty drive this time of year!

Down the long dirt road….

Keep going until it turns sharp right…..

And you’re HERE!!

We’ve got a whole lot of friends here today helping……….as you can plainly see we’ve got a bumper crop this season and Teddy and I are very excited about it.   Once we get all the hard work done, we’ll rest up and enjoy some great food and drink to thank you for helping us out.   

To help keep everyone hydrated and comfy, you’ll see our friends Madi and Katie Isabella traveling around the greenhouse and the grounds and fields with goodies so just flag them down and help yourselves!

Thanks Katie!

Totally FAB Madi!

As you can see if you walk around, lots of our friends are already “bringing in the bacon” !!!

My buddy and pal Raz with a wheelbarrow full of bacon……

Our good pals, Sundae and Gypsy – now that’s a PILE OF BACON!

Marvelous Marv made a BACON sign and Sammy Pilch is helping him haul in the harvest!

Madi and Katie are not only our “snack queens” but they are ALSO helping with the harvest!

 

Woo Hoo!!!!!!

Well they sure went to work quickly – nice that they brought along some friends too!!

Our super duper pals Mauricio, Cooper Murphy AND Mauricio’s wife Allie are working hard……….

We even have our pal Mr. Squirrel – love his hat with Mitzi Bimbocorn’s logo!

When you’re ready for a break – just have a seat under an umbrella and rest up!

Just in case you forgot how the whole bacon greenhouse thing got started, my buddy and pal Mauricio gave me some MAGIC seeds – Bacon seeds – the variety is “CRISPY” and man oh man is it delicious.    This is our second harvest and we intend to “KEEP ON PLANTING” !!

Let’s go out in the field and see who’s working out there shall we?

We got more tractor help!   Bear (the golden) and Sammy talked their Dad into joining in the harvest!!

Lookin’ good Sam!   You’ve been a BIG HELP – you are a great “digger” !!

How’s things out there Speedy????

Mr. Jack Freckles has his special Bacon Harvest Hat on and a load of bacon…….just a little AWKWARD bringing the bacon by the pigs!  Tee Hee

Wow Charles – you picked the bacon from that whole side of the greenhouse!!!!!

Einstein did you try a sample to make sure it’s nice and ripe???

Angel Sammy was happy to see his dear friend Angel Flynn made it down from his cloud to help out today too!!

Attention Harvesters!   Time For the Party!

Come on over to the picnic area everyone – let’s EAT!   Thank you for your HARD WORK – you are REAL friends to help Teddy and me out with the harvest – we want you to relax now and enjoy some BACON and other goodies with us!

Sheeeee Haaaaw!!!!

Bring on the food!

What a Day!  Teddy and I have some gifts for you:

A package of our special bacon!

AND, if you see our greenhouse snoopervisor, she will present you with one of our “starter plants” so you can begin your OWN bacon garden at home!

What a perfect day it’s been…

Thank you friends…..drive carefully on the way home!

Remember Me, Thankful, and Poetry Day

43

So Busy This Thursday!   

Today we have Thankful Thursday with Brian, Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday, and the MOST special remembrance today which is “REMEMBER ME THURSDAY”…….. a day we set aside every single year to remember all the sweet pets who are waiting to be rescued and have a chance at having and enjoying for their rest of their lives a true FOREVER HOME.    Shelters are full of sweet animals who have been taken to shelters be they no-kill or kill and who wait and hope that someone will give them security – sometimes for the FIRST TIME in their lives and sometimes because they have sweet memories of “home” in the past and wish for it again.     There are a million videos honoring this day but one of the most poignant ones is below – please take a couple of minutes to watch it.    It touches your heart and soul…………..

Actually today’s Remember Me Thursday is a great way to move right into THANKFUL THURSDAY at Brian’s!    I so easily could be one of those waiting in a shelter for my FOREVER but happily, my Mom and Dad came to the shelter last February and took me home where I have enjoyed my truly FOREVER……just as Angel Sammy did.    I am thankful that I am not languishing in a cage at the shelter but so many are and they need YOU to save them.      If you click the badge below, you will be transported to Brian’s blog and you can hook up and join in the THANKFUL blog hop he hosts every week!    THANKS Brian for being our host!

The last bit of our 3-way post today is my big brother Angel Sammy’s THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAY post – which, as you know – he transmits to me via his wireless connection on his computer at the Rainbow Bridge every week.    I know he’s getting excited this week because he will be transporting down here for our Saturday post this week which is our BACON DAY and this Saturday we’re having a BACON HARVEST on our blog!   Somehow I doubt that’s what he wrote his poem about this week though.   This week’s letter of the alphabet is “P”……he gave us all four prompt words but of course we can write about ANYTHING starting with the letter “P” !

Here’s Angel Sammy’s transmission!

♥♥♥♥

Hello Buddies and Pals!!   It’s MY poetry challenge day!

Yes, every Thursday I make an appearance to share the poem I’ve written for my ALPHABET POETRY CHALLENGE.    We are fast working our way through the alphabet and already at the letter “P” so I am wondering what you came up with to celebrate the letter “P” this week.    The prompts I gave you to help you come up with something last week were:

(1) Princess (2) Poet (3) Promise (4) Party

You can write about any “P” thing in your poem though.    I actually DID choose one of the prompts that I gave to you – mainly because I wanted to write about today’s REMEMBER ME THURSDAY occasion which is something near and dear to my own heart as I was rescued from a shelter myself by my Mom and Dad who made a PROMISE to me when I went home with them!

“Promise”

By Sammy Kimmell, Sept. 28, 2017

I was just a wee kitten in a tiny wire cage

Found under a house all alone – nobody home

That day my life began on a fresh new page

I would be safe and happy with no need to roam.

Abandoned by my cat MOM?   We would never know

Brought to the shelter by someone – a passer by

I looked out the bars waiting for someone to show

The shelter was quiet and some animals would cry

A man and a lady came there one cold February day

Would they see me?   My cage was way way up high

I had a small ball with a bell – with it I would play

The lady heard it, looked up and I caught her eye!

I stuck my paw out – extra toes she could see

“It’s a polydactyl!” she said to the man by her side

He touched my paw and said “Hi” very tenderly

Out of the cage I was brought and handed to the man

I was smart, I was cute, and I licked his face

“This is the one” she said, I would smile if I can…..

They signed papers and soon we were out of that place!

………..AND WE ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER…………

Funny how 17 years AFTER my Mom and Dad adopted me they found themselves back at that same shelter, in the same month, and found another little ginger boy to take home – my little brother Teddy.    I wish I could have stayed there to meet him………..but my time came to leave in December, 2016 just two months before he found his FOREVER with my Mom and Dad.     

Remember Me Thursday is near and dear to my heart and to his as well as my Mom and Dad…………..my Mom cries BIG tears for all those animals in shelters who wait and wait and sometimes never get their homes.     Teddy and I were lucky…………….and we know it………………

Next week we will celebrate the letter “Q” which is a tricky letter isn’t it?!     Well, I’m giving you four prompt words to think about but you can write ANYTHING you want to with the letter “Q” so feel free to do that………..THEN, come here and post the link to your poem so we can all read it OR if you want to, post your poem in my comments OK?    I love poetry and please don’t say “I don’t know how to write a poem” because you CAN………..poetry is from the heart and doesn’t even have to rhyme!    OK?  

(1) Quiet (2) Quarrel (3) Q-Tip (4) Quack

There you are – a little help if you need it.     I hope you will have a great week and I hope that you will remember TODAY is the last day you can send in a photo of YOU in your Bacon Harvest Outfit so we can put you in our Saturday BACON HARVEST PARTY post!     We had a ball last harvest and hope you’ll be with us for this one.    I’m flying down from my cloud for the day.   Can’t wait to see you there!    Email your photo to my Mom ASAP!!

I Love You All………..Angel Sammy

♥♥♥♥

Thanks Angel Sammy!    As always, I love your poem because YOUR story is exactly MY story.    Same shelter, 17 years apart and two baby gingers found their FOREVER in the same home.   If you haven’t looked at the video link we posted above, please do.    This is a very special day to REMEMBER………….

Hugs, Teddy

Pre-Tease Monday

39

Where Did This Past Week Go???

I guess it’s Monday again…….good thing I heard the school bell ringing or I might have slept in – not good for a Professor to do.    My Assistant Prof Teddy was on the swings in the playground when I arrived in the schoolyard.   GOOD FOR HIM!

Well, shall we get down to the business of preparing for tomorrow’s Teaser?

Yes Sir Professor Angel Teddy – we’re all set!!

First of all, I will remind everyone that tomorrow’s Teaser post will feature a photo sent in by one of our Teaser Post Fans…………so it will be a total surprise and that’s the general idea – it will be up to YOU dear students to figure out WHERE somebody snapped the photo!     Yep – YOU!

Gosh……talk about PRESSURE!!!!!!

When you guess, you have to say what TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE as well as what COUNTRY (if not in the USA) or STATE (if in the USA) the photo was taken!     To add insult to injury, you should NOT use Google Image Search to get the answer.   Use your very own brain…………study the photo and see if there are clues or just plain make your best guess.    No cheating allowed PLEASE.

Tomorrow morning, the blog post here will to LIVE at an undisclosed time – – – – be on your toes/paws!     As soon as it pops up come here and hurry to COMMENT on the post because if you are the FIRST to comment – guess what you get?????

Another FLASHBACK badge from the past!

And if you are the first RIGHT GUESSER of where the photo was taken, you get this:

Yet another FLASHBACK badge!!

If you guess RIGHT but you are not FIRST, you still get recognized by being awarded one of these:

Yep – you got it – ANOTHER FLASHBACK!

And if you should be WRONG with your guess…….well, you know nobody goes away empty handed – we have another FLASHBACK badge if you’re WRONG:

An oldie but a goodie!

Next week we’ll get back to our regular badges but I thought it would be fun to dip back in time to re-use some of our older badges for Teaser guessers!!

DID YOU SAY “OLD” SONNY???????

So what do you think everyone – shall we see if Suzie can fire us all up to be in class tomorrow and using all of our brain cells to figure out the Teaser photo????????

Here we go for another week
Giving our brains yet another tweak
Will we know it or will we fail?
Once you get to class you cannot bail!
So get some rest tonight and go to bed on time
How do you think I’ve gotten so good with rhymes?
STUDY STUDY STUDY and you just might win
If you do I’ll get my convertible and take you for a spin!

Alright Suzie!    A ride in your convertible for the winners?   Are you sure you wanna do that?   After all, you just got your drivers license………

Yes Professor, I’ll just have to get these two out of the car first…..

OK, we’ll see how that works out………….in the meantime, Assistant Professor Teddy and I hope to see you in class tomorrow……………………..

STUDY HARD!!!

Angel Prof Sam and

Assistant Prof Ted
