Teaser Tell All (Really!)


OK Class – you caught us yesterday you smarties!   We had the wrong TITLE of our class post yesterday calling Monday “TEASER TELL ALL”.    Well, EXCUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUSE US!   

Today is TELL ALL!

We sort of thought we might fool everyone yesterday with the photo but of course we didn’t.    Let’s start with telling you WHO our FIRST COMMENTER (that’s right – just one!) was – can we get a drumroll for that puleeeze?


Here’s your badge Miss Sharon

I was the one and only FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser post of December 27, 2022!

AND here’s the Teaser post from yesterday – it was a Graphics Department pick!

Fingal’s Cave – Isle of Staffa, Scotland

Amazing place – and if you’d like more info about it or would like to see more photos – check out this website HERE !

SO WHO WAS OUR FIRST RIGHT GUESSER???????????????  Drumroll please?

DARN! I guessed the Teaser of December 27, 2022 but I was WRONG!!

I tried – I really did!!!!

Cheer Team?   How about a CHEER!!

What a Teaser – it really wasn’t easy
Just seeing that DARK cave made us quite queasy
We started off class with JUST ONE FIRST RIGHT member
Miss Sharon was the one on the 27th of December!
Then we all waited to see who would figure it out
Kristiina came through and was first without a doubt
Lots of students got it right but Kristiina was the first
Now lets’ go have some yummy food and drink to quench our thirst!!!

Let’s eat!

OK class – off to the cafeteria we go!

Step right up!  Mary Ann and I are ready for you!

SPARK on Monday


Time for “SPARKS”. “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when she stopped blogging some time ago. It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it. Although Annie isn’t currently blogging, a lot of us who enjoyed her SPARKS decided to keep posting SPARKS of our own.

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday – we sure did.   Part of our holiday included spending time with our wonderful neighbors.   They feel way more like family than neighbors!   Anyway, I wanted to do a SPARK reflecting the value of people like that in our lives.

I’ve always been grateful for friends in my life………….and as I’ve aged, I value that more than ever before.    Now – ONWARD TO A NEW YEAR!

Hugs, Pam

Sunday Selfie for Christmas


Merry Christmas Everyone!

From Our House to Yours…….

“Come on Mom and Dad – see what Santa brought!”

“Can I open this one first??  It smells great!”

Happy Christmas everyone……Love, Teddy, Mom Pam and Dad Dave

NOT Bakin’ With Bacon on Christmas Eve


WHAT?  No recipe today?  NOPE – it’s Christmas Eve and I want all of my loyal bacon subjects to spend today with their family and friends…….NOT reading recipes!


Besides – I think the Royal Family deserves a day off too!

SO, The Royal Mom and Dad and I are relaxing and hope you are enjoying a quiet day before Santa comes tonight.


Thanks for being our friends and enjoying the recipes we share!

WE WISH YOU A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and we shall be back on New Year’s Eve with a recipe.

Royal Hugs, King Teddy and the Royal parents


Friendly Fill-Ins


Friday is for filling in!    Our two co-hosts give us four sentences and we fill in the blanks they left for us.  Easy huh?   Sometimes Mom and I split up the filling in duty.

Here are today’s sentences!    I thought today Mom and I would split up the filling in duties.   SOOOOOOOOOOO if I’m supplying the word it’s in BLUE and if Mom is supplying the word the words are in GREEN!

1. My favorite holiday tradition is hanging a stocking up for Santa to fill – we have three stockings up – one for me, one for my husband and one for Teddy!
2. On Christmas (or Hanukkah) I plan to fill up on TREATS!.
3. ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house I spent most of the evening looking for a mouse (just kidding – never had a mouse in the house but it rhymed so I said it….tee hee).
4. SMILING is the best way to spread holiday cheer.

Alrighty then!   Done!    Mom and I both enjoy filling in the blanks and we thank our two co-hosts for giving us four sentences every week to play around with.
We wish everyone a VERY VERY VERY happy holiday – whatever holiday you’re celebrating…………!

Love, Pam and Teddy
