Teaser Tell All Class!

Standard

Greetings Students!   It’s TELL ALL Class!   

Clowie’s crack crew says “GO FOR IT PROFESSORS” as they have checked the school grounds and found them to be clear of any introoders so let’s get going shall we?

FIRST of all, we did NOT have SIX First Commenters yesterday (for which the Cheer Team was mighty grateful).    We had THREE……..much more manageable for the Cheer Gals and it didn’t send them into orbit for a change.

“You Have Our Attention Professors!”

Our THREE First Commenters yesterday were:

Carole, Katty and the Weims, and Sharon !!!

WOOOO HOOOOOO!!!!!

Each of you ladies get a copy of the FIRST COMMENTERS badge:

There were THREE First Commenters on the Teaser Post of January 12, 2021 and I WAS ONE OF THEM!!!

As you may remember, the Teaser photo was supplied to us by our Graphics Department.    The Graphics Department will be closed for business NEXT week and we are giving all of you a WEEK OFF FROM SCHOOL – We will have our next Teaser class on Tuesday January 26th!    I know you will miss Teaser Tuesday – but we all need to take a break once in a while and our HEAD GRAPHICS DEPARTMENT LADY (actually the only Graphics Department Lady) is having surgery Friday and won’t be able to help us with class next week.     YOU GET A BREAK!

Now let’s move on shall we?    Let’s talk about the Teaser photo and WHERE it was taken…………….

Here’s the photo.    We had some interesting guesses – and really this could easily have been any number of places but it actually is one of the walkways around the Tallahassee Museum near Lake Bradford in Tallahassee, Florida!    This area is part of The Florida Trail.    Here’s a link to some info about the museum.    Looks like a good spot to climb trees (unless of course that’s swamp those trees are poking out of!).      CLICK HERE

Wanna know who guessed it right first??????????????????????????????????

DRUMROLL PLEASE……………

Ingrid was our First Right Guesser!!!!

WOO HOO MISS INGRID!!!!!

AND here is your badge:

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser post of January 12, 2021! YAY FOR ME!

As of the time we crafted this post, there were no other CORRECT guesses but in case someone else posted a correct answer before midnight last night here’s a RIGHT NOT FIRST badge for them:

I was a RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser post of January 12, 2021 but I was NOT FIRST! DARN!

AND if you guessed but were WRONG, you get a copy of this badge of your very own:

I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of January 12, 2021 but I still got a badge!

Congratulations Winners (and losers)

Cheer Team?  You got a little break this week since we did not have SIX First Commenters…………………..so let’s see what you put together:

Another Teaser in the books
Now don’t go giving us dirty looks!
We’re here to tell you who won what
So keep your ears open and your mouths shut!
First Commenters we had THREE
All were SHES not one was a HE!
Carole, Katty and Sharon were our FIRSTIES this week
Leave it to the ladies to be first to speak
We were beginning to wonder if someone would be FIRST RIGHT
When finally we got one who was out of sight!
Miss Ingrid to the rescue with her right guess
She figured it out before all the rest!

Thanks girls – you get a week off too because no Teaser Class next week!!!

Yeah I thought that’s what you’d say you would do next week!!!

Well everyone let’s hit the lunchroom and have ourselves a bite to eat shall we??????????????????

Well, we’re ready for you kids to choose your lunches.  We’ll miss you next week but enjoy your little “mini-vacation”!

Our Tell All Menu:

We will miss you next week but we’ll see you January 26th for the next TEASER class!

Your Professors, Angel Sammy and Teddy

Friendly Fill-Ins

Standard

Friday! Let’s fill in some blanks together shall we??  Every Friday we get four sentences – two from each of the above co-hosts – with blanks for us to fill in.   Amazing how much information you can share with just a word or two in a sentence isn’t it?    Well, if you think you might like to play along – just click the badge above and find where to LINK up with us at 15andMeowing.

Here are our four sentences for this week.    Mom and both filled in this week – if the words are hers they are in BLUE and if they’re my words they’re in GREEN!

 

1. I hope my perfect little life never changes.
 
2. The luckiest I have ever been was meeting and marrying my hubby David!
 
3. I never thought I would find a forever home when I lived in the shelter but I did.
 
4. I’m waiting for life to get back to normal – I miss traveling SO MUCH.
 

 
 
Not very exciting words in our blanks this week – sorry about that – it’s been a quiet week (at least until yesterday’s mess in Washington, DC – thankfully we live about an hour outside of town in the QUIET countryside!).     Anyway, we really thank our co-hosts for coming up with sentences every week – Mom says she’d have a tough time doing that !!!
 
Hope everyone has a super Friday and fabulous weekend…………….we might get snow next Tuesday…………might…………only MIGHT!
 

“Gee Dad…..what do you mean when you say you wish you had a wheelbarrow handy???”

Hugs, Big Boy Teddy

 

Sunday Selfie Hop

Standard

 

Let’s HOP together – what do you say? Every Sunday The Cat On My Head kitties have a Hop where we just show off ourselves………fun huh? Wanna join? Please do – click the badge above and link up with us to “strut your stuff”.

Mom actually took a few new photos of me yesterday.    Sadly they aren’t very interesting – just me after using my stairs to get up to the sink for a drink.    Yes – after all this time I’m still drinking water out of a sink.   Mom puts fresh water in the sink every morning.    You think I’m spoiled?    Yeah – so do I !   HAHAHA

Here I am:

I’m not sure which of these would make the most interesting puzzle but let’s see what Mom and I can do……………………first we have to jazz the photo up with Lunapic – I’m going with the one on the right………..

I’ve been Lunapic-ed!    This is me after we used the “Psychedeic” art effect!

 

Click the mini-me for the puzzle!    Good luck Puzzlers!!

Happy Sunday!   Hugs, Teddy

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

It’s New Year’s Eve……a great time to look back and think about all the things we have to be thankful for after this most difficult year we are saying goodbye to.     If you would like to join in this perfect HOP hosted by Brian, just click the badge above and link up.    I think it will be a BIG DAY for posts on the Hop.    

As I look back I really am so thankful that my Mom and Dad did just exactly what the doctors and experts recommended – STAY HOME…..WEAR MASKS……WASH HANDS……BE CAREFUL.    They never were big on flitting from store to store to shop, going out to eat often, going to parties where there were lots of people so really doing all the things that had been recommended for humans to do was easy for them.    They have missed their friends and missed occasionally going to their favorite restaurants but take-out has been available (even though they’ve rarely done that) and Mom loves cooking anyway.     They wear their masks and fortunately in this small town of ours almost everyone HAS done that consistently.    There are a few who just don’t think it’s necessary and that’s unfortunate and hasn’t done society any good that’s for sure.    People HAVE traveled out of town – across states – spend time in groups of people but that’s not my Mom and Dad.   They LOVE to travel but this past year just wasn’t the time to do it.    So what I’m saying is we in my house have a lot to be thankful for but doing the right things made it easier to stay safe.     My job has been to keep them happy and even if I do say so myself – I’ve done that quite well!    I get more play time, more walks outside, more hugs…….and dare I say it – more treats!

We did get an email from Angel Sammy with his poem for this week.   You may remember the photo he gave us last week had a New Year’s Eve celebration theme.   Let’s see what kind of poem he wrote – and if you wrote one for the photo – let us know – we want to read it!!!!

♥♥♥

Happy New Year’s Eve Friends!

Time to save goodbye to 2020 and get ready to give a BIG HUG to 2021.    Hopefully all of you are healthy and happy and ready to have a BETTER year.    We Angels at the Bridge want that for all of you more than we can say!

Last week’s photo for this week was definitely one that made people smile……………a man and a woman enjoying a New Year’s Eve celebration – maybe it was just the two of them or maybe they were captured on film at a party.    I don’t think there will be a lot of huge parties this NY Eve but then who knows.   There are a lot of people who think they know better than the experts and they will gather together tonight and maybe spread the virus.    It’s tough to imagine it being any worse than it is but it can be.    

Let’s get on with poetry shall we?     Here’s the photo from last week and my poem to go with it.   

“Stroke of Midnight”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©December 30, 2020

 

C’mon baby give us a hug

Then we’ll dance and cut a rug!

Time to let loose and celebrate

You’re mighty cute but where’s my date??

 

Short and sweet…………….HAHAHA……………I have a feeling the poem will remind just about everyone of at least one New Year’s Eve party they’ve been to.    My Mom says most of the New Year’s Eve parties she went to were before she was married to my Dad.   She’s never been a night owl so rarely made it to midnight anyway.     Party animal?   Not my Mom.   My Dad may have been more of a party animal than my Mom but even so, these days they’ve finished their champagne toast and gone to sleep by 9PM.    Priorities change when you get older (so they say).

Now how about you?  Did you write a poem for the photo?   If if so, let us know in comments – give us a link to where we can read your masterpiece!     Make a New Year’s Resolution to begin writing a poem once a week with us if you don’t already do that……….it’s SO MUCH FUN.   Honest!

Here’s a photo for you to use as inspiration for NEXT week’s poetry sharing event…………………..

Sweet?    Yep – nothing like a “man and his dog” sort of photo right?    Well as they say SIZE DOESN’T MATTER…………….these two are probably destined to be best buddies for life.    Let’s see what you do with this one in the way of a poem to share.

So there’s nothing left to do but wish all of you the VERY BEST of New Years…………………let’s hope 2021 is a whole lot better than 2020 was………………………….

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Happy New Year………….Love, Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

Thanks for watching out for me and Mom and Dad in 2020 Angel Sammy…………….I know you’ll be keeping an eye on us in the new year too!

See you next year!

 

Friendly Fill-Ins on Friday

Standard

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Neither rain, nor snow, nor Christmas Day will keep Friendly Fill-Ins from happening……………and if you want to join us – just click the badge above and LINK UP.    We have two co-hosts as you see and each of them provides two sentences with blanks for us to fill.    Fun!

Mom and I split the sentences – Mom’s words are in RED and mine are in GREEN.

 

1. The best gift I have ever given is the one that gave the receiver joy because I had “listened” when they said what they were hoping for!.
 
2. Last night, I enjoyed driving in downtown Warrenton, and around various neighborhoods with my husband looking at Christmas lights while listening to Christmas music.
 
3. Sitting on the front porch while it pours rain brings me joy today.
 
4. My favorite holiday memory is my first Christmas here – I’d never seen a TREE inside before – I knew about outside trees but inside and with lights?   WOW!.
 
 
 

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas celebration!

Teddy and Mom Pam
