Sunday Selfie Blog Hop Time!

Standard

Sunday!   Selfies!    Blog Hop!    That’s today alright……….and it’s hosted by our buddies at The Cat On My Head.   If you would like to add your selfie to the bunch, click the badge above and LINK UP with us.   The more the merrier.

Mom says she was “too busy” to follow me around and snap a NEW photo of me for today’s selfie.    HA!   Well, she has been doing a lot of stuff around here but “too busy” ???  She’s saying she didn’t have time for ME.    Should I be insulted?   I’m not.   Mom is busy.    Besides, once in a while it’s fun to do a FLASHBACK Selfie.    Let’s see what old photos we have from this same day in the past……….

This little gem is ME in April, 2017 which was two months after I joined my new family.    I quickly became a fan of the sinks.    I would ONLY drink water from a sink.    We have no idea why that was but it was.     I doubt I would FIT in a sink these days.    Maybe a HUGE sink but probably not the sinks in Mom and Dad’s bathroom which this is.     I do look young and tiny compared to today.     So, Mom decided to take a whack at jazzing this oldie up – here’s what she did:

Mom used the REDS Art Filter from Lunapic………Well after all I am an orange tabby – Red is CLOSE !!!

THEN we made a puzzle:

HAVE FUN!!!!!    Hugs to everyone………….Teddy

Teaser Class on Tuesday

Standard

“Another Tuesday’s security rounds completed – all is well!”

“Alright – we’re checked out as secure – let’s get the show on the road!

HAVE YOU COMMENTED YET???”

Time again to agonize over a photo of SOME PLACE, SOMEWHERE, and SOMEHOW you have to figure out where it was taken.   That’s your weekly challenge class and you do pretty darn well at it.    So let’s get the party rolling shall we?

“WAITING…..READY…..LET’S DO THIS!!”

First up – rules and badges……………..

There you have it – all you have to do is figure out the photo and VOILA – you probably will get SOME kind of badge.

OK OK WE GET THE MESSAGE….you want a badge!

This week’s Teaser is from our Graphics Department who is back from a little vacay to rest up and enjoy Easter.    She They did !    So let’s see what we have today shall we?   Security Guard – BRING IT ON DOWN!

Reporting for duty Professors…..Here’s the photo!

WHERE WAS THIS PHOTO TAKEN???????

Alright gang – it’s all yours – up to you to figure this one out and make your guesses………………hopefully winning a post-Easter-Holiday badge!    The Cheer Team will try to get you in the mood (they are known for getting people in the mood……but we’re not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!).

Welcome students to post-Easter class
Hope you gave chocolate Easter eggs a pass
They can make you fat and slow you down
Make you gain 100 pounds.
Give the photo today your special attention
Winning the Teaser is not a new invention!
You can win if you want to you know-
Settle down at your desk and give it a go!

OK girls – thanks for giving them a bit of a pep talk……………..now it’s time for everyone to either head to lunch or stay in class and study…………………far as I’m concerned it’s a “NO BRAINER” – food comes first!

Hello all you little Post-Easter Buns……hope you enjoyed your holiday and are ready for lunch!

What’s On The Menu?

STUDY HARD STUDENTS – see you in class tomorrow – GOOD LUCK!

Your Professors, Angel Sam and Teddy too

Sunday Selfie Hop for Easter

Standard

HAPPY EASTER!

Time for the Sunday Selfies – EASTER style!    This hop is hosted by our friends at The Cat On My Head and is our chance to strut our stuff every week.     If you’d like to join in and post your selfie in the Hop – just click the badge above and LINK UP with us.

Mom wanted to do an Easter-ish picture of me and we already have a cool one she did for Cat Scouts a few years ago.    SO we thought we’d break it out again AND also do another artsy version of it for a puzzle.

I like it – Mom decided to jazz it up a little with an EASTER frame…………………

Yes we did make this into a puzzle for you!

CLICK THE MINI-ME EASTER BUNNY FOR THE PUZZLE!!!

Mom and I hope you have a wonderful Easter or Passover

with family and friends and LOVE – LOTS OF LOVE!

Hugs, Tedbunny

Teaser Tuesday Class Begins!

Standard

“It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood Team – let’s let the Professors know all is well!”

Hello Teaser Students!   Have you COMMENTED yet?  Better do that NOW!

Then have a seat and get comfortable for class to start.

Yessirs – wide awake and READY!

Today we have an interesting Teaser photo for you.   We actually don’t think it’s that hard of a teaser but then when we think it IS hard, it isn’t………and when we think it’s EASY it’s hard.  So what the heck do we know?  Not much apparently.   But we DO know that it’s your job to figure out where the Teaser photo was taken and maybe win a badge.   Here’s our rules for guessing and the badges you might win if you’re on the ball!

Now that you’re all set to go – why not GO?    Let’s bring our Security guy in with the photograph for today and we’ll get started shall we?

“Attention – would The Teaser Photo Guard puleeeeeze report to the classroom??!”

Reporting for duty Professors…..Here’s the photo!

EEEK!  Where the heck is this place????

“What planet is this?????”

OK everyone – the Cheer Team will send you off to the study hall then to lunch with a rousing cheer……………………ready?   GO!

We’re getting ready for The Bunny
It’s coming soon now Honey!
Baskets of eggs and fun
For kids and everyone!
But right now you need to study
By yourself or with a buddy
This photo is a whopper
A genuine Teaser show-stopper!
It looks like it’s from outer space!
A rather frightening and confusing place.
Good luck to you – the smarty pants class
If we got a free trip to that place we’d all PASS!

It is a rather – well – daunting scene wherever that is….not so sure I’d be in there poking around either.   Anyway, GOOD LUCK CLASS – now who’s up for lunch???

Alrighty then – let’s go!

Time for lunch class……The cafeteria staff and I wish you a yummy lunch with us today!

Ready/Set/Eat!

TUNE IN TOMORROW FOR THE TEASER TELL ALL CLASS!!

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

A big thank you to Brian for hosting Thankful Thursday Blog Hop…………..if you’d like to share what you’re thankful for – it’s a great way to do it.  Just click his badge above and join us.    It’s also Poetic Thursday which is a chance to strut your stuff by writing a poem inspired by a photo……..but first things first…………..I have thankfuls!

I’m thankful that we SEEM to be “over” having snow.    We had been forecast for some start of this week but it didn’t materialize – we have rain instead…..we can handle rain but we are SO OVER SNOW.    Also thankful so far Mom and Dad are healthy………I need them and love them so I’m glad they’re healthy!    I had my annual vet visit for shots, etc. and was told I must DIET.   Diet is a four letter word……on the NAUGHTY WORD list!     I have to stop my prescription dry and go to metabolic wet.   Well, changing from a food I’ve had for five years and love to one I don’t like (wet) is tough but I’m working on it!

A happier subject is Poetic Thursday.     Let’s see what my Angel brother Sammy sent to us in the way of a poem this week AND a photo for NEXT week’s poetic challenge – hope you will decide to join us!

♥♥♥

Let’s Get Poetic Together!

Hi everyone.    Did you have a chance to write a poem this past week since I gave you a photo challenge to use as inspiration last Thursday?    I hope so – I wrote a poem and I’m hoping you did too.   If you didn’t – give it a try – after I share my poem with you I’ll give you a NEW photograph to use for next Thursday’s poem – hopefully you’ll write one and share it with us  then!!

Here’s the photo I gave you last week and my poem:

“We Are Family”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©March 17, 2021

 

When the call comes through

We can count on you

Through thick and thin

They are always “all in”

The Amish community

United at every opportunity

Supporting each other

All sisters and brothers

Each barn made with love

And help from above…………..

 

Barn raising is a tradition that continues today in some Old Order Mennonite and Amish communities; especially those in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and some areas of Canada. A barn raising refers to the collective action of a community, in which all members help to build or rebuild a barn. Historically, this tradition was practiced throughout rural North America in the 18th and 19th centuries, during which time a barn was a vital structure for farmers. While barns were vital, they were also costly, and often required more labor than one family could handle. In this case, the community would come together to assist in building their neighbors’ barns. This favor was eventually returned to all members of the community. Barn raising within Amish communities remains today, mostly unchanged from how it was done in the past.    I think it’s a wonderful tradition bringing the community together for a common purpose.   That kind of togetherness is inspiring!

Now how about a photo for next week?   I’ve got one for you!

Love it………………..this will be a fun one!!    Hope you will consider writing a poem for this photo – and sharing it with us NEXT Thursday – just let us know in comments you wrote a poem and where we can go to read it……………………..

Until then, please stay healthy and most of all HAPPY.

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

Love, Angel Sammy

Thank you Angel Sammy – I’m always so very happy when you are able to spend a little time with us on Thursdays.    I miss you and I just know that everyone who knew you before you went to the Bridge misses you too.

Love and Hugs, Teddy
