Teaser Tell All

Standard

Clowie says we’re safe to go so let’s get going!   It’s TELL ALL time……..

Alright! Time to give you the low-down on yesterday’s class and who did what!    It seems what we thought might be a bit of a tough Teaser wasn’t.   Nope – it was not long before we had someone who ALMOST knew then not long after that another person figured it out totally.

“That’s too confusing for me to follow!”

Well how about forgetting the back story and getting to the good stuff…………….let’s talk who was our FIRST COMMENTER…………………

“We’re READY!”

ANNOUNCING THE FIRST COMMENTER…….

Katie Isabella and Mom Carole

WOO HOO!!!!

Your winners’ badge:

We were the FIRST COMMENTERS on the Teaser post of November 17, 2020 – WOO HOO for us!

“Poo!  No matter how hard I try I never get my comment in FIRST!”

There’s always next week you know!    

Here’s the photo we thought would fool you…………………………but didn’t:

This photo was taken in Medenine, Tunisia!      Interesting condo arrangement isn’t it.   Well this type of dwelling or storage areas are apparently not an unusual site in Tunisia.   If you are curious and want more information in general about this area of the world, try clicking HERE to get more facts.    Interesting for sure!

“I still say it looks like prairie dog or gopher dwellings in the desert somewhere!”

Now we can tell you who was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER of this gem of a photo………………………….

SHARON of FRIENDS FUREVER!!

WOO HOO and the crowd goes WILD!    Congratulations!

Your badge:

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of November 17, 2020…..I got it! I really got it!!!

AND if you guessed right too but weren’t first, please feel free to copy this badge for yourself!

I guessed the Teaser RIGHT but I was NOT first…….sniff sniff….but I still got a cool badge for being right anyway!

And if you guessed but were WRONG…………..well, at least you tried (and you get a badge – below!)

I blew it….I guessed but I was WRONG on the Teaser of November 17, 2020. I still got a badge for trying though.

Now some of you may be wondering where the Cheer Team is today – I have a photo for you which explains all…….big party last night APPARENTLY!     

Everybody gets something!   And if you didn’t get a badge of SOME SORT you still get our THANKS for coming to class and having fun with us…………………………and a free lunch in the cafeteria!

Off we march to the cafeteria!

Hi Students!   I’ve got this hat figured out – just took a little super glue and I won’t be worrying about it falling off that’s for sure!   Now who’s up for lunch – today is CELEBRATING SANDWICH DAY!

 

The Menu:

See you next week class!   Your Professors

Teaser Tuesday is NOW

Standard

We have the all clear from Clowie and her team that we are secure so LET’s GO!

FIRST THOUGH – COMMENT!

 

Good Morning students. Time for class to begin!    We hope you got plenty of rest last night and are ready to study a photo and give us your BEST GUESS as to where it was taken.   

“Norman – WAKE UP!!  Class is starting!!”

There’s always someone who stayed up late to watch a scary movie on TV or spy out the window or SOMETHING.   Anyway, let’s give you the rules of play and the special badges for this time of year that you might win if you are on the ball today in class.

  

 

We’ll have these same badges available for winning next week too of course so if you aren’t lucky this week – you have another chance to get one then.

“I want one of those badges!  If I don’t get one I’ll…..well…..I’ll do something BAD!”

The Teaser is one of our Graphics Department’s finds but we have to admit our Graphics Department does a pretty danged good job all things considered…………Now let’s bring in our Photo Security Guard to show you this week’s “gem” !

Here’s today’s photo Professors!

Where was this photo taken??????

“I know – I know – it’s a prairie dog colony out in the desert – right????”

No Ralph – I can tell you that’s not right but I can’t tell you more than that…………keep trying………………..and while you’re studying, let’s hear from the Cheer Team!

We’re Late again for our ballet class
No lunch for us – we’ve gotta pass
If we’re late again our teacher will be cranky
And we won’t get away with any hanky panky!
So we’ll just say good luck to you students and give it your all
Some of you will win and others will fall
But we’ll be back tomorrow to sing your praises
And hope the Professors give us big fat raises!

Well ladies don’t count on those raises – it’s the School Board that would give you a raise and they are……..shall we say…………less than generous with compensation???    Anyway, we love you and that should be reward enough.    Yeah.   

Now everyone who is staying and not sneaking off to ballet class would you like to follow us to the cafeteria??    Let’s go!

Greetings students….just doing a little practicing with my Thanksgiving Hat – this thing isn’t easy to balance you know.   Anyway, hope you enjoy lunch today!

Enjoy lunch and we’ll see you tomorrow!!!!!

Good luck guessers! 

From  Your Professors!

P.S.   A special note about our friends the Kitties Blue at THE CAT ON MY HEAD.    We know a lot of you follow their blog but they have major problems with their website right now and are getting some help from host and developer to resolve them – BUT for now, unless you are SUBSCRIBED for email notice of blog posts – you won’t see their current posts.    Visiting them takes you to their LAST post which was for Veteran’s Day.  Don’t worry – they WILL BE BACK SOON!!!!!!

“We’re Ready to Rock – Clowie says we’re all secure so let’s do this!”

Good Morning Students! Today’s the day we let you know who did what on the Teaser yesterday.    We’ll start with who was the first to comment yesterday shall we?

Announcing the One and Only FIRST COMMENTER:

TIMMY!

WOO HOO TIMMY!!!!!!   

Your badge is ready for you:

I was the one and only FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser post of Nov. 10, 2020!!!!

“I’m feeling my cranky coming on….or do I just need a diaper change???”

Well, let’s move on………………….shall we?     The Teaser photo we had was from our Mom Graphics Department and it was not only a COLD photo but it fooled most people for a few minutes (!) after Teaser went live.   In other words, the person who won got it pretty darn quickly!

Here’s the photo:

We think it looks ICY COLD here too!   Where is this?

Hurry up – I wanna know!

This is the very old section of the village of Zermatt, Switzerland called “HINTERDORF”…………….don’t you just love the architecture.    You can see a peek of “modern” on the left but this old part of town is fascinating.    Want to learn more about it?    CLICK HERE.

WHO GUESSED IT FIRST???????????????????

Drumroll please for the announcement!!!

I’m so excited…….even though I didn’t even guess I’m still excited!

INGRID!!!!!

That’s right – Miss Ingrid guessed it right FIRST……….

Congratulations!  Here’s your Badge:

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of November 10, 2020. WOO HOO!

And if you also guessed correctly – you get a badge too!

Well I was right with my guess on the Teaser of Nov. 10, 2020 but I was NOT FIRST!

Then there were those of you who guessed but were WRONG………..you deserve something for your willingness to guess even if it was WRONG!    Here’s a badge for you:

Well I guessed but was WRONG on the Teaser of Nov. 10, 2020. I’ll do better next week – yep!

WOW – I forget how big this class is sometimes……

Well we all tried – there’s always next week right Professors???

That’s right Truman!   It could be YOU next week!

Cheer Team?  You’re ON!

It’s just a little nippy out
So we dressed warmly for our cheer and shout!
One FIRST COMMENTER is all we had
Timmy got there early thanks to his Dad!
Then it was just a matter of waiting
For a smarty pants student so we could stop anticipating!
Ingrid got to class and guessed right away
She got it quickly it was her lucky day!
We bet next week’s Teaser will be more tough
Then we’ll see who’s got the “right stuff” !!!!

Thanks girls……………….well done.    I’m sure Timmy and Ingrid appreciate your effort on their behalf.     The School Trainer asked us to tell you that your hot tub has been cleaned and filled with fresh water in your dressing room so you can warm up there!

Now who’s up for lunch??????    

Cool!   Let’s go!

Howdy students!  We’re all set for you here in the cafeteria – just grab a tray and come on down the line!

What’s For Lunch?

ENJOY YOUR LUNCH THEN HOP ON BOARD THE BUS FOR HOME!   SEE YOU NEXT WEEK STUDENTS!

Teaser Tuesday Time

Standard

Happy Tuesday Security Team – are we ready to start class??

Yes Professors!   School yard SECURE!!

Good Morning Class! Have you COMMENTED YET? You’d better do it NOW before class starts.    Last week was a super duper busy week with Halloween and our costume contest but this week will be back to our usual routine.    

“Usual routine??? What the heck is “usual” around here??!!!!”

Well, we mean we have no special stuff going on this week in class.    Just guessing where the photo was taken.    OK?    OK!

Our Teaser photo today is a GUEST TEASER photo.    It’s a great photo though and we hope it is just a little bit difficult for you to guess.    Before we do that, let’s review the RULES and show you the badges up for grabs today!

“GRABS or CRABS?????”

Are you ready to see today’s photo?    Are you sure?     Everybody fully awake?    

Alright – Mr. Impatient – bring on the Photo Security Guard please!

Here’s today’s photo Professors!

 

Where was this photo taken??

We’ll give you the scoop tomorrow and tell you who sent the photo in……………if you have a photo you think would be a challenge for Teaser class – just email it to us!    We’ll notify you before we use it.

Now who would like to hear from our charming Cheer Team??????

Alright!   Everyone’s hand is raised!

We’re coming to you via Zoom from our favorite place
To welcome you all to the Teaser race!
Competition for FIRST is a big priority
We’d like to think among our students it’s a majority!
Study the photo and you just might get it
We’ll be back tomorrow to give you credit!
Meantime we’re heading inside for some liquid cheer
You all are too young or we’d invite you here!

Thanks ladies………….we’ll look forward to hearing your cheer tomorrow with all the winners names in it.    Hopefully you will be here in PURRRRRSON though!

“Those Cheer Chicks are soooo totally groovy!”

Now is anyone in class ready for lunch?     I hope so because we Professors sure are!     Let’s go!   

 

 

Greetings Class!  We have some “international” dishes on the menu today along with other choices!  Enjoy!

Today’s MENU:

Welcome Back for Part Two of our Halloween Fun!

What fun we had yesterday! Hope all of you did too……the contest was wonderful.     We have the results of the contest for you but we have Teaser business to conduct first!    

“So?   Get on with it already!”

 

First order of business is telling you who our THREE FIRST COMMENTERS were yesterday when the Teaser post went live at 8:08AM EST.     

Our THREE First Commenters were:

TIMMY, SHARON, and INGRID  !   Let’s hear it for them!

 

Here are your badges!  Please copy one for your files/blog!

I was one of THREE FIRST COMMENTERS on the Halloween Teaser of Oct. 27, 2020! YAY FOR US!

“Phoooey!  I even got here early but not early enough I guess!”

And now we’ll tell you all about the Teaser Photo and where it was from then WHO guessed it right FIRST!

This is the very old and slightly spooky Bodiam Castle in East Essex, UK !

If you would be interested in learning a little more about this spot………………….just CLICK HERE and you can read all you want to about it.     I bet it would have made a great spot for a haunted castle party.

WHO guessed the location first?   Drumroll please………

MISS CSILLA !!!!!! 

And here is your badge Miss Csilla !!

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER for the Teaser of Halloween, 2020! YAY FOR ME!!

There were a whole lot of you who guessed right though and EACH of you who did guess right – but weren’t FIRST like Miss Csilla was, get one of these badges of your own:

Well I was RIGHT with my guess on the Halloween Teaser of 2020 but I was not FIRST RIGHT. Phooey!

AND if you were WRONG – just plain WRONG with your guess you get a Halloween Greenie:

UHOH…..I blew a wrong note and my Teaser Guess was WRONG on the Halloween Teaser of 2020!

“Alright you students!  No pouting out there – if you didn’t win a badge this week you can try for one NEXT week! And THAT’S AN ORDER!!!”

The Cheer Team is saving themselves for a big finale today – announcing the winners of the photo guessing AND the costume contest so we’ll see them in a bit.

Thanks to all of you who participated this year!   We had eleven entries in the contest – and we had a TIE for the winner between two entries……they were:

The dynamic duo of “Stinky and Periwinkle” !!!

If you don’t know who Stinky and Periwinkle are – WHY NOT?   HAHA     They are creations of Janet of The Cat on My Head and Sharon of Friends Furever.    They have a wonderful blog post every single Tuesday by either Janet or Sharon and they are ALWAYS up to some kind of fun adventure.   Make sure you tune in on Tuesdays.  I’m not surprised they won – they are very popular and have a big following in the blogosphere!    And who was our other entry that tied for first???????

Joanie from 15andMeowing!

Joanie is one of the many kitties living with Miss Ellen and her husband in Massachusetts and Joanie is known for being the “costume wearer” in the family!    She models her nurse’s uniform nicely don’t you think?   Their blog is so much fun and you never know what the kitties are going to get up to at 15andmeowing.

Let’s hear it for our TWO winners………………….!

HIP HIP HOORAY!!!!

Stinky and Periwinkle’s Moms as well as Joanie will be getting a surprise package from us for being our Costume Contest winners………………They also get a special badge for being our winners and all of you who were in the contest get a badge too – here they are:
