Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

It’s Pre-Tease Monday!

Yeah – I just said that!   So it’s time to get you READY for tomorrow’s Tuesday Teaser.

If you are new to my Tuesday blog – every week we post a photo that is either one of OUR OWN photos from my Mom and Dad’s many trips, OR it’s a photo that was sent in to us by one of our adoring fans (tee hee) – that’s YOU!    If it’s not ours, we call it a GUEST TEASER – they are almost always tougher to guess.   You will take a look at the photo and give me your guess as to WHERE the photo was taken – what town/city/village as well as what state (if USA) or country (if not USA) – and you must have that information in your guess.

So now you’re ready for tomorrow right?   No?   Not quite?   Purrrrrhaps if we ask our Teaser Cheerleader SuzieQ to give you a cheer it will put you IN THE MOOD????

Bingo Bango Bavaria
Don’t dare give me malaria!
If you breathe on me and make me sick
I’ll smack you with a great big stick!
What’s that got to do with teasing?
Some weirdos find pain pleasing…..
I’m getting a bit off-track
Professor Sammy might give me a smack…..
Just let me say I’ll be waiting
For you to guess then we’ll be celebrating!
We’ll go have some mojitos
And several pounds of yummy doritos!
I’ll see you Tuesday RIGHT HERE
And I’ll be doing another swell cheer!

Thanks Suzie – no doubt everyone is FIRED UP now……………………….Class, please also remember that the Teaser photo blog post will NOT BE popping up in your inbox at the same time as we ALWAYS publish this blog.    It will be at a SURPRISE TIME…….you’ll never know WHEN………so stand by……….you may want to put your pillow by your computer so you’ll be READY when the email notice arrives!    Gotta be ALERT to win around here!

Remember the early bird catches the worm!  

YOU ALL HEAR THAT??? BE READY! OR ELSE….

Professor Sammy, Sarge scared me and now I have to go to the litterbox!

Go ahead Bobby – hurry back though.

Nice to use the litterbox without SARGE timing me!

So I’ll see everyone here tomorrow at some surprise time…………….remember whoever COMMENTS first on tomorrow’s Teaser post will win this:

Then there are other prizes for FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, RIGHT GUESSER BUT NOT FIRST and of course WRONG GUESSER (or as we call it, the ever popular GREENIE!).

See you tomorrow kids!

Filling In on Friday!

Standard

Time To Fill In Sentences!

A FUN Blog Hop co-hosted by 15andMeowing and McGuffy’s Reader

Every Friday we get to complete some sentences “our way” – two from McGuffy’s Reader and two from 15andMeowing.  If you’d like to play along, just click the badge above and go to McGuffy’s Reader, use the LINKY tool and join in the fun!

This week’s sentences are below, and we let our Mom do the filling-in as the sentences are more “human-friendly” than animal friendly this week!   Mom’s responses are in BLUE!

1. The most interesting museum I have been to is The Natural History Museum here in Washington, DC on the National Mall.
2. The most interesting historical place I have been to is Rome, Italy.
3. Spring is back!    (just in time too – we were SOOO ready to get rid of the cold!)

4. I was surprised that I got the yard mowed this morning BEFORE we got rain….usually it doesn’t WAIT for me!

We look forward to filling in every week……Mom said that she had SEVERAL to choose from for #1 and #2 as she’s traveled a lot AND been to all kinds of interesting museums around the world.  It’s sometimes hard to “pick just one” !!

Teddy and I hope you all have a GREAT Friday and weekend…………….I’ll be busy at the Bridge on some projects and classes but Teddy will be terrorizing my parents and having fun all weekend I’m sure.   When you’re a youngster EVERYTHING is fun (except going to the vet I guess!).

Love and Hugs, Angel Sam and Ted

Thankful Thursday

Standard

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday!

Today we do TWO posts in one!   First of all we talk about being Thankful for Brian’s Thankful Thursday Hop – and you can visit him by clicking the above badge and join in the hop with the LINKY tool…..tell us why you are THANKFUL…….I’m thankful because I have a special guest here at my house.   Someone Angel Sammy met and hosted for a while and now it’s MY turn to show this friend a good time.   Who?   It’s our good friend Bashful the rock-n-roller who lives with Bacon at the Hotel Thompson!

We will tell you about his visit here in the next couple of days but just so you know – he’s being kept company by one of Mom’s stuffed piggies AND one of Sammy’s stuffed kitty pillows.   He has naps in this spot and since this guy travels ALL THE TIME, he naps almost as much as I do!    THANKS for visiting us Bashful!

Part Two of Today’s Post is:

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday which is when we celebrate another letter of the alphabet as we make our way from A to Z………….and today the letter we have to use is the letter “S” !   If you have written a poem on your blog, why not post your blog link in my comments so we can read it!  OR you can post your poem HERE if you like in a comment.    Poetry is the spice of life!!  Write some today!   NEXT WEEK WE DO “T” !

“Snow”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 4/20/17

Snow, snow, so cold on the toes

Icicles hanging from your kitty pink nose.

Now you need to hear this bit of news from the Bridge

There’s no snow up here from the sea to the ridge!

It’s sunny each day and breezy each night

But there’s no white stuff falling – that just wouldn’t be right!

Snow is for you back here in this life

At the Bridge we don’t deal with trouble and strife!

We work hard up here, don’t get me wrong

But “Let It Snow” you won’t hear as our favorite SONG!

I might dream about snow but I don’t have to see it here at the Rainbow Bridge!!

As all of you know by now, Nellie joined me and so many others here at the Rainbow Bridge last Friday………..she is happy here but misses everyone “back home” especially her Mom.    My Mom thought she’d put together a little slideshow of some of the wonderful graphics and posters sweet Nellie and her Mom did for us through the years……Nellie’s Mom is a wonderful artist and Nellie was a great inspiration for her I’m sure!    We will treasure all of our memories forever and ever………………these are just a few of our special  moments.

Teddy and I thank YOU for visiting us today!

Hugs, Angel Sam and Ted

For Inge Mallory for the Teaser photo of 4/18/17

Here’s the photo from yesterday again:

Isn’t this a fabulous looking place?   It’s a HOUSE…..that’s right.   It’s known as the “Mushroom House” (guess why!  hahaha) and it’s located in perinton, New York.   It’s been featured on many house/garden programs on TV and actually is CURRENTLY for sale.   Want more info on this amazing structure?    CLICK HERE    You can just google Mushroom House and a few sites will pop up that have details on the sale if you’re interested (tee hee).

Who wants to live in a bunch of mushrooms??? Not me!

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Shall We??  

YES let’s go for it and have some fun with this week’s Tuesday Teaser here in our Geography class!    Please remember the FIRST PERSON to comment on this post this morning will be our FIRST COMMENTER and will win a badge – this one in fact:

………..so hurry up and comment!!

Is everybody ready to begin class?   Sarge are all the students behaving to your satisfaction there in the back row where we usually have a little monkey business going on????

Well I did have a little problem with one student but I think he’s under control now Professor Sam!

Alright then we’ll move on.    This week’s Teaser is from a Guest.   It’s what I would call a FUN Teaser…………..I hope you agree.   Remember please that I need to know in what town/city/village and what state (if USA) or country (if not USA) you believe the photo was taken.    So be careful when you make a guess because I will need to know that information for your guess to be counted.

Let’s see if our SuzieQ can whip you all into a frenzy so you’ll be ready to guess………………….!

Here I be
Cute little me
Screaming myself silly
For every Frank and Billy!
Before you make a guess
I really must confess
I peeked at the Prof’s class notes
So let’s all take a vote –
Should I tell you all the scoop?
Make the Prof look like a poop?
No I’ll leave it up to YOU
And now my cheer is through
C’mon and be the FIRST
Or I’ll make you eat liverwurst!

Now that’s a threat that should put the entire class to work figuring this one out Suzie!   Good job…………………now Mr. Silver Briefcase could you please post the photo for us?

Yes sir….here’s today’s challenge!

Where was this photo taken?   Be the FIRST to guess correctly, and you will win this:

Be RIGHT but not FIRST with your guess and you still get this:

AND if you’re WRONG, you still get a little something for your trouble!

There you have it – now get to guessing everyone – the clock is ticking………and no it’s not a bomb – it’s a CLOCK and if you wanna win a badge (that isn’t green) you better figure this out ASAP!!!

NOW – I have a little announcement.   

Our Assistant Professor Teddy (who is my little brother) 

won some honors in the annual

Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby Car Race!

How cool is that???    You may remember what his vehicle looked like – the rules were that it HAD to have a cardboard box as PART of it and it needed to be a “creative” design.   In past years at Scouts there have been vehicles of all descriptions and this year there was a rocket ship, a jeep with horse cart, a rescue vehicle, a hooligan-wagon, and even a fire engine complete with a dalmation on board – AND many more.   So all kinds of vehicles were made and entered in the race.   Teddy drove a milk truck my Mom and Dad made for him – “Teddy’s Moo Juice Truck” !

He also looked pretty sharp in his racing gear!    AND we asked all of our blog buddies – THAT’S YOU – to vote for him because “popular vote” was a big part of who would win.   Also there was a GUEST CELEBRITY Judge who voted – the wonderful Jackson Galaxy of “The Cat From Hell”………….So the winners were announced yesterday AND Teddy won:

FIRST PLACE FOR MOST CREATIVE CAR

FIRST PLACE FOR MOST SKILLED DRIVER

SECOND PLACE FOR CROWD FAVORITE

and……

He tied with his good friends from The Cat On My Head for “RUNNERS UP” for the GRAND PRIZE!!!!!!

YAY FOR TEDDY!!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!

Thank you!    We TRULY want to thank each and every one of you who voted for Teddy in the contest………..it was sweet of you to do that and it made his little kitten heart FULL of love for all the wonderful followers we have with our blog.   We’ll let you know what the prizes are……….whenever we get them.    After all, YOU were a big part of why we won!

Sam Loves His Friends!

You are the BEST friends

Tune in tomorrow for TEASER TELL ALL!!!

Hugs, Angel Professor Sam and Race Car Driver Teddy

The Teaser is from a GUEST

Thanks Suzie for getting us all PURRRRRPARED for tomorrow.    Not only will we have our photo to guess but I will share some other photos too AND announce a BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT that our Assistant Professor Teddy – my little brother – has under his belt (yes I know he doesn’t wear a belt….just sayin’ )!

Angel Professor Sam…………

P.S.  (with great sadness)  

We learned that our beautiful and special friend Queen Nellie has left all of us and joined my big brother Angel Sammy at the Rainbow Bridge………..Angel Sammy was there to give her a great big hug along with all the other friends and her own family who had left before her.    She looks beautiful in her Angel Wings…….and she of course misses her Mommy most of all.   Nellie was one of a kind and will definitely live on in the blogosphere and especially our hearts FOREVER………

Farewell Angel Nellie……..You are the most beautiful Angel of all……….

Friendly Filling In

Standard

Happy Friday! 

Let’s Fill In Some Sentences!

Friday means joining one of our favorite Blog Hops – Friendly Fill-Ins which is co-hosted by Miss Ellen of 15andMeowing and Miss Ann of McGuffy’s Reader.   All you have to do is fill-in the sentences they give us…………….two sentences are from Ellen and two from Ann and that’s all there is to it other than clicking the above badge and going to McGuffy’s Reader and using the LINKY tool to sign up your blog!   Easy right?

This week we have let Teddy do the filling in………kind of scary to give that much power to a kitten but we thought it might be fun so here goes.   Teddy’s fill-ins are in RED!

1. An Easter (or Passover) tradition I have is (will be) getting an Easter Basket from my Mom and Dad!  Angel Sammy said he always did so I hope that’s a new tradition for ME!

2. My favorite flavor of ice cream is Vanilla – of course something ELSE might be a favorite but so far I’ve only had vanilla from my Mom – I’m willing to give others a try though!.

3. One of my favourite Easter/Passover memories is Nothing since this is my first Easter so I’ll let my Mom answer this one.   Hello everyone – this is “Mom” and one of my favorite Easter memories was when I was a little girl and we lived in Weisbaden, Germany.  Our housekeeper was a lovely German lady and she brought my brother and me a very special German Easter egg full of tiny, very sweet little special candies.   Funny because I’ve had many Easter baskets since and all kinds of candies and goodies but I remember HERS over all the others.   

4. My favourite Spring flower is Dicentra – it’s the only flower I know – they are blooming in Mom’s garden and I love the little hearts!!

So there you have it!   That’s the last Fill-In before Easter so in case we don’t have a chance to say this again before Easter Sunday……………..HAVE A BLESSED EASTER OR PASSOVER!

Sam's Easter Card

Love, Angel Sam, Teddy and Mom

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

Double Post Day!

(First of all sorry for the confusion yesterday – Mom ACCIDENTALLY hit “publish” instead of SCHEDULE for this post and you got a notice a day early!   We quickly deleted it – but here it is again on the RIGHT DAY!!!!!!)  

First part of my blog today is for THANKFUL THURSDAY.    Today I’m VERY thankful – Why?   Many things but today I’ll tell you just one reason – Spring is popping here finally.   As recently as one week ago we had a frost/freeze warning but for the last several days we’ve had WARM temps and the little leaf buds on the trees are bursting open in leaps and bounds!    Our pink dogwoods have pink blossoms and the little dwarf Japanese maple has leafed out – the maple was my FAVORITE spot to stay cool in the summer and we think Teddy has figured that out now too!

Front Garden 2012

Want to share what you are thankful about?   We are sharing by joining Brian’s THANKFUL THURSDAY blog hop………..all you have to do is click the badge, go to his blog, use the LINKY TOOL and enter your blog address – SHARE with all of us what you’re thankful for.  EASY!

Now for PART TWO of this post and that’s my Thoroughly Poetic Thursday post……………….this week we are up to the letter “R” in the alphabet so the poem needs to be about an “R” thing!

“R”

“Rabbit”

By Sammy Kimmell, April 13, 2017

It’s a well known Easter habit

Watching out for the Easter rabbit!

He comes when everyone is sleeping

On bunny feet he does all his creeping

He hides eggs around the house

He’s QUIET as a mouse!

Kids will carry their baskets around

To see how many eggs can be found!

Sometimes the bunny leaves candy –

The basket will sure come in handy –

For carrying around all your treasures….

Such fun is impossible to measure.

Easter Rabbit makes everyone SMILE

Makes older folks feel like a child.

The Easter holiday would not be complete

Without those visiting RABBIT feet!!

Next Thursday we will celebrate the letter “S” as we make our way to the end of the alphabet for the second time here on the blog!    I hope you will join us – it’s not too late to join in today – you can write a poem and put it in my comments OR if you have a poem done on your blog – leave us your link so we can HOP over and read it!    Try some poetry – you’ll be glad you did!!

Love, Angel Sammy

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Hello Class!   Come In For The Tell All

So we all survived Teaser Tuesday and here we are for Tell All Wednesday.    I know you’re DYING to know the scoop on that amazing “place” we showed you yesterday but first, let’s talk about WHO was our FIRST COMMENTER!

This week there was only one who came in to comment in the first 60 seconds after the post went live and that was (drum roll please):

Miss Csilla (Kolytyi)

For Csilla, April 12, 2017

Concatulations Miss Csilla!     Now who was our fabulous friend who sent us the very amazing photos?    Let’s show you the photos AGAIN……….

The photos came to us from Miss Annie of Animal Couriers!     She has actually visited and STAYED at this awesome structure called The Balancing Barn, located in Suffolk, UK……………….and it’s available to rent should you find you like the idea of being in mid-air when you lay your weary head down at night after a long day of sightseeing the British countryside!!!     Here’s a link you can investigate!

CLICK HERE

Neato………………..and what a treat it must have been to stay in the place – it’s gorgeous on the inside – on the link above you will see some more photos.   You should take a peek!

Thank You Miss Annie!   This is for you:

For Annie Alexander of Animal Couriers for the Teaser of 4/11/17

Now, I’m sure some of you were hoping Suzie would come here and cheer for the winner and give a big old razz to the losers but guess what – she’s away at a cheerleading squad meeting and isn’t here today.   Cool?    But we DO have someone who said they would do a quick cheer………a round of applause for her please???

CLAPPITY CLAPPITY CLAP CLAP…………………

RA RA RINKY DIRTY SOCKS ARE STINKY I’M SUZIE’S GRANNY WATCH OUT OR I’LL SWAT YOUR FANNY.

Uhhh…………………………..thanks…………………sort of……………………let’s hope Suzie’s back next week…………..although now we see where she got her CHEERING TALENT from!!

The FIRST RIGHT GUESSER today on this UNIQUE Teaser, was none other than Da Phenny who is just back from a vacation in Paris with his Mom and Dad!     Phenny, this is for you!

There were several more of you who guessed correctly – that it was the BALANCING BARN…………and each of you get this:

And those of you who were NOT right………..well, first of all don’t feel bad because a lot of people came, looked at the photo and didn’t guess – you guessed (wrong) but you guessed!  This is your reward!

Next week who knows where we’ll be

or what the Teaser photo will show us…..

one thing I do know is

we will have FUN with it right Class?

YES PROFESSOR SAMMY!

Teddy and I hope to see you NEXT week!!

Angel Prof Sammy!
