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!

Bashful and Bacon

Standard

Bashful (because he’s visiting me) 

Bacon (because it’s Saturday!)

Yes – as I always say (because Sammy said I should!) – it’s Saturday – Bacon Day – and it’s OH SO GOOD TO BE KING!!!!

But it’s also oh so good to have Bacon the piggy’s rock-star brother Bashful visiting me too.    I have a few pictures to share with you today of his adventures so far here with me BUT first, let’s do what we bacon-lovers MUST do on a Saturday!    EAT BACON!   YAY!!!!

Remember that Sammy is always watching……so we mustn’t miss a Saturday!

Mom has been known to say this on a Saturday…..would make things easier if we could just download the stuff!!

Really – who would serve eggs WITHOUT bacon?   Isn’t that either a sin or against the law or SOMETHING?

If I had that little face staring at me in the kitchen one morning I’d be grabbing my car keys and making a bee-line for the grocery store!!!!!!

This is not a “funny” poster – it’s TRUE AROUND MY HOUSE!!!

Well here at my house we are WELL above AVERAGE!!!

ARE YOU KIDDING????????????????????????????????

I do hope that you will be blessed with some bacon for breakfast (or lunch or dinner or all three) today!    We have had some for breakfast here at MY house!

Who’s Visiting????

Yep – Bashful is here for his second visit but it’s his FIRST visit with ME!   Angel Sammy was his host first time around!

Bashful had Thanksgiving dinner in W. Virginia at Sammy’s Auntie Joan’s house when he visited last time.

This is him sitting on Auntie Joan’s dining room table after alllllllllll that turkey was eaten and alllllllll the side dishes too!  No he didn’t eat them all – there was a lot of human help.

ANYWAY, we think he had fun……….this time around, we will have new adventures and I’ll be his host.

The first thing he wanted to do was pay his respects to Angel Sammy…..In the back of the box is a little book my Mom wrote after Sammy sent to the Bridge.

After that, we took Bashful to the grocery so he could pick out some favorite things to have while he’s here!   He had his own Bashful-sized shopping bag too and know what?   He only wanted ONE SPECIAL THING for himself – all the rest of the food Mom bought he said was great.   Here he is with his ONE SPECIAL THING:

IMAGINE THAT!    His own bottle of Guinness!    Heavy stuff for a rock but then Bashful can handle anything!

Next up he asked if he could look for some bedtime reading for nights after we’ve turned out the lights in the Casa De Kimmell for snooze time.   So we perused our library here at home and he found some “Bashful-sized” books to read:

He will have plenty of reading material that’s for sure!

Who knows WHAT we’ll do next…….but we’ll have fun that’s for sure!

Time for both of us to have a post bacon breakfast nap!

See you tomorrow for Sunday Selfies at The Cat On My Head!

Love, Teddy and Bashful

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

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

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……….

Bacon Day

I, King Teddy, Proclaim It To Be

BACON SATURDAY!

Shall we begin the celebration of Saturday?????

Seriously?

Surely we aren’t supposed to BELIEVE this are we????

 

CAN HAZ, SHOULD HAZ and WILL HAZ!  Right gang???

My big brother in his bacon hat……..I sure miss him!

“Hi Phenny!  Would you just deliver all of those hams and bacons to my house please???”

Whoever says roses smell THE BEST was right – assuming they meant BACON roses!!!!

Some of you have asked what the Greenhouse staff is doing since we had the BIG HARVEST PARTY……Well, Miss Marsha, the Greenhouse Supervisor took her “bacon bonus” we gave her for doing such a fabulous job tending the crop this first year that she’s bought a new car and a new house and is looking forward to next year’s harvest – AFTER she comes back from her vacation in Tahiti!

Not bad!

My kinda vacation spot!!!

Miss Marsha – job well done!

Now if you’ll excuse me….

I think I’ll stretch out (yawn….)

and take a bit of a snoozer!  

Happy Saturday!

Love, Teddy the Baconator!
