Teaser Tell All

Standard

Let’s Tell It ALLLL!

Oh yes indeed let’s “GIVE IT UP” !!    Yesterday’s Teaser adventure was interesting wasn’t it?    Lots of good sleuthing going on out there……………people were looking at the architecture and figuring out a whole lot including where in the world that kind of structure might be located!   FUN huh?

I think we’ll start off today by letting you know that the Teaser Photo was from our friend Miss Steph and her kitty Gracie HERE.   It was a photo that a friend of theirs took on her travels around the globe and we THANK her for it!    This is for you Miss Steph:

For Stephanie and Gracie for Teaser of 8/15/17

Before we get into “who won what” let’s show you the Teaser photos AGAIN then let you know where they were taken shall we?

Oh good – if you’re happy then I’m happy.

This my friends is the sleepy town of Chisinau where the beautiful Capriana Monastery complex is located in the Country/Republic of MOLDOVA!    This particular building is the “Winter Church of Saint George” which was built in the 20th century but other structures on the property date back to the 1400s.   I must say that at some point in their past, Moldova WAS in fact part of Romania but is not currently.    It’s on its’ own and wants to stay that way (!!).    We are embarrassed to say that we didn’t know there was a MOLDOVA.    Anyway, really interesting Teaser this week right?

NOW – WHO WINS WHAT??????

Our FIRST COMMENTER yesterday was the irrepressible and ever eager (and always awake!) Da Phenny from Brittany, France and he and his Mom commented in the first sixty seconds after we went LIVE this morning.   This is for you!

For Phenny on August 15, 2017

Next up – FIRST RIGHT GUESSER…………….now we had a bit of an interesting situation with this – why?   Phenny and his Mom guessed the correct building and city but said Romania!    They were just so darn close but not RIGHT……………..we’re giving them a little something anyway!

For Da Phenny on August 15, 2017 !

And Miss Csilla who is also quite a Teaser Expert and posted several ideas about the Teaser before she gave us her GUESS – was TOTALLY right about Moldova so she is technically our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!

For Csilla, August 15, 2017

There were a few others who guessed correctly AFTER Csilla…………..if you were one of them, then this next one is YOURS!

For Teaser of August 15, 2017

HOWEVER, if you were WRONG………….and there were a pile of you who were (thanks for trying ANYWAY!)………..you get a GREENIE!

Now I do believe our little Holy Terror (oops…….I mean SWEET CHEERLEADER) Suzie has a bit of a cheer for you winners today!    Come on down Suzie!!

The Teaser sure was tough
Made Teaser Day too rough!
But through all the gloom and doom
Two bright lights filled the room!
Da Phenny was close as could be
BUT not quite right I’m afraid was he
Then Csilla chimed in and was RIGHT
The competition was tight!
She was the First Right Guesser
So give her the award Professor!
Oh before I forget
Da Phenny scored another hit
He was FIRST to comment on the blog
He’s got fast paws for a dog!
A successful Teaser this week
Next week a new Teaser we’ll seek!!!

Thank you SuzieQ!   I think your cheer rounded out the day quite nicely……………………Students – you all did very well this week on what I considered to be a TOUGHIE indeed!

NO NO!!!  Don’t be SAD – be PROUD!

Next week it will be a new chance for everyone to take a whack at guessing yet another fabulous photo!    If you’d like to send us a Teaser photo you think will fool the classroom – please do!  Just email my Mom with it and we’ll use it one of these Tuesdays.

Where in the world will we go next week??????

Professor Angel Sammy – at your service! 

See you next Tuesday!

 

 

 

Teaser Tuesday

Standard

Time For School!

Good morning class!!!!

GOOD MORNING TEACHERS!

…..zzzzz……

Good Morning!!!!

Time again for figuring out a photo – actually TWO photos today………………..BUT before we begin, remember to QUICK make a comment on this post so you can get a FIRST COMMENTER badge like this one:

This FIRST COMMENTER BADGE is much sought after far and wide and even on other planets (well…..I don’t know that for a fact but……..).    Go on – hurry up – Sarge will escort you there and back………..

MOVE IT MOVE IT !

Now that we’ve probably got a FIRST COMMENTER (or two or three), let’s move on shall we?

Today’s Teaser is – if you don’t mind me saying – a WHOPPER………………I think it’s tough.   I’ll just go ahead and come right out and say it!    TOUGH!    When Mr. Briefcase posts it you’ll see what I mean……………..but before we go that far, let me remind you of the rules!!!

  1. NO FAIR using Google Image Search!   That’s just WAY WAY WAY too easy to do – we’d much prefer it if you would try and figure it out without doing that!   OK????  OK!!!!!
  2. You must tell me what town/city/village AND what country (if out of the USA) or state (if in the USA) the photo(s) were taken in………where was the photographer when they took the photo???

Easy – two rules……………….I just KNOW you can handle that…………..so shall we move on?????    We will begin with our effervescent little princess of punk cheerleading, SuzieQ……….Come on down Suzie!

Hidey Hi, Hidey Ho
Teaser time so let’s GO GO GO!
It’s somewhere on Earth
the photo was taken
But where oh where was that camera shakin’ ?
Was it on a deserted isle in the middle of the sea?
Or maybe in Tasmania from up in a tree?
Was the photographer on Mars or maybe Pluto?
Or maybe in Italy – the land of prosciutto?
It’s up to you to come up with a guess
Be the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER – faster than the rest!
Tomorrow’s the TELL ALL
When we see who has won
I love Teaser Tuesdays – they are SO MUCH FUN!

Well Suzie – that was well said………………you’ve certainly made everyone aware that this might be a doozy of a Teaser so why don’t we prove it by bringing in Mr. Silver Briefcast/Forest Ranger/FBI Agent/Secret Service Guy with the photos shall we?

Here’s this week’s photos Professor!

 

There you have it – the second photo structure can be seen in the first photo – right side of photograph…………………..just to orient you!   NOW WHERE THE HECK IS THIS????

If you are the first to guess correctly where this was taken, you win this:

If you guess correctly but are NOT the first to do so, you get one of these:

And if you are WRONG but you’ve guessed anyway, you get one of these:

SO what are you waiting for – turn on your brain and figure this little mystery out!   I’ll be patiently waiting for the first student to raise his or her hand who HAS GOT IT – tomorrow in class we’ll find out WHO you winners are!!

Oh look who’s at the classroom door – it’s Miss Dingleberry………………………….

Oh Professor??? I’ve got the cookies and milk I promised for your class today…..our theme was “unusual looking cookies”…….enjoy!

Can we have more than one????

Professor Sammy – my Mommy will be upset if you have those thong-cookies out in public!!!

Well, don’t tell her then……………..HAHAHA

Thank you Miss Dingleberry for your cafeteria crew’s creative cookie effort!  

CLASS MAY BE DISMISSED FOR RECESS!

We’ll see you tomorrow for the TELL ALL! 

GOOD LUCK!

Friendly Fill-In Friday

Standard

Fill-In The Sentence Day!

It’s Friday which means we are joining the co-hosted Friendly Fill-Ins!   McGuffy’s Reader and 15 and Meowing have Friday reserved for this FUN sentence fill-in game we play.   They each contribute TWO sentences with blanks and we fill ’em up!   Would you like to play along?   Just click the badge and go to McGuffy’s – use the linky tool and join in the fun!

Today’s sentences are filled in by my Mom………..her fill-ins are in GREEN!

1. Blind dates sometimes work!    My hubby was a blind date and just look at us now 27 years later!.
2. Fifty years ago, I got my first cat – when I moved into my first apartment and I’ve had cats ever since.

3. I admire people who will TRY something before saying “I can’t do that” because it’s a GREAT way to learn something NEW.

4. Reading makes me think about things I probably would never have thought about before.

♥♥♥

Thanks Mom!   You did brilliantly………better than me………….I don’t know what a blind date is for one thing!!!!

Now if you’re all finished Mom, let’s turn off the computer and NAP!

Love, Teddy

 

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Ringy Ding Dong!

Better hurry up and get your seats students! I’m taking names of you SLOW ones!

Glad you could make it………………now before you get TOO comfy, remember to COMMENT on this post because if you are the FIRST COMMENTER today (or even if you are ONE of the first in the first sixty seconds) you get a badge!   WOO HOO!   GO ON – HURRY UP!

Can I take a snooze while they’re gone???

OK class – now you can settle down – tomorrow we’ll let you know WHO was fast on the draw and got the FIRST COMMENT in!   For now though, let’s buckle up and get ready to see today’s TEASER PHOTO shall we??

Let me go over the rules first:

  1. In order to be the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER you must guess the CITY/VILLAGE/TOWN as well as the STATE (if in USA) or COUNTRY (if not in USA) where the photo was taken.
  2. Since it’s SO DARN EASY to just use Google Image Search – resist the temptation to do so – let your BRAIN do all the work – it’s more of a challenge that way!!   Figure it out without help!

That’s it – so now that we have that straight, let’s see if our dear Suzie would like to PUMP UP THE VOLUME and give you a Teaser Cheer to get the creative juices flowing.

Hope you weren’t late
Never hesitate
Sarge likes to YELL
And ring the school bell
So let’s get to guessing
Hope you read your lessons!
I think this one is TOUGH
Might make you feel real ROUGH
Just give it all you got
Or your brain might go to rot!
Pinky Panky Pookie
Let’s Play HOOKY !

 

Uh…..thanks Suzie – that was inspiring other than when you encouraged class to play hooky.    Now Mr. Security Dood/Briefcase Man will bring in today’s PHOTO and we’ll let the GUESSING BEGIN!!!!!

Here’s this week’s photo Professor!

(some areas have been blacked out to remove clues!!)

 

Alright students – it’s up to you now………………if you are the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER today you will win this:

If you guess RIGHT but you’re not FIRST you get this:

If you guess INCORRECTLY but tried your bestest, then you get this:

AND for the one or ones who were FIRST COMMENTER today?    You will win this:

 

Now I promised you that Miss Dingleberry would have some sort of special SOMETHING for all of you before you head out for recess today…………..eating well makes your brain work better you know……..so make sure and have some lunch before you play on the monkey bars or swing on the swings OK?

Bacon peanut brittle

Chocolate bacon baklava!

Friendly Fill-Ins on Friday

Standard

Happy Friday!

It’s time to do some “filling in” on the Friendly Fill-Ins Hop

This is a fun hop co-hosted by McGuffy’s Reader and 15andMeowing and we join up every Friday to share fun facts about ourselves or our humans………it’s fun!  You should try it – and if you’d like to just click on the badge below and use the Linky tool there to “hook up” and do some filling in with us.

 

This week’s sentences are below and my Mom’s fill-ins are in RED (yes I thought I’d give her a break and let HER fill-in today – aren’t I just plain SWEET????).

1. As a child, my favorite playground activity was swinging on the swings – I loved it – it was like flying.

2. For breakfast, I have my own homemade biscotti and coffee.

3. An instrument I would like to play is the piano – I took lessons for three years when I was little but lost interest – I sometimes still dream that I’m in a recital and am very nervous.

4. I always try to smile, because smiles are infectious – when someone sees MY smile – they almost ALWAYS smile back.
OK Mom thanks a bunch.    When I saw the sentences I knew I wouldn’t be able to answer them – especially since I never played on a playground as a child !!  Tee Hee
Tomorrow is going to be another Bacon Caturday……….will you be here to enjoy some bacon fun with me?   I hope so – you’re welcome to stop by you know.  Everyone is invited.

In the past week I have been one lucky little guy – why?   Well because I’ve won TWO totally cool things from other blogs I follow!     One totally cool thing was a Drinkwell Fountain from my buddies at The Island Cats!

The other cool thing is a book about cats which I won from Cat Chat with Caren and Cody………….Am I lucky or what?

Thank You Both!   I am so excited!!!!!!

Love, Teddy

 

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Two For One Day!

First up is Thankful Thursday Hop with Brian – one we look forward to every week because we can publically share what we’re thankful for this week.    I am VERY thankful that my Mom and Dad are so understanding of my need to go for walks outside.   I know they wondered if I would be like Sammy and easily trained on leash and harness and WOO HOO for me – I was most happy about it.   If it meant I could go outside and sniff and walk and dig in the dirt and eat grass then I was UP for it.    Every day I get at least three walks – Mom or Dad or sometimes both of them.    Lucky?  Oh yes indeed I am!

There are so many things I’m thankful for though – this is just ONE of the things I love the most.

The next part of today’s blog is my Angel brother Sammy’s FAVORITE thing – the Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge…………………..and he works very hard at the Rainbow Bridge all week then takes a break on Thursday to write a poem and email it to me via his Bridge Wi-Fi connection.    Here’s what I got from him LAST night to celebrate this week’s letter – the letter “G” !!

Hello poetry lovers!    Your old friend Angel Sammy coming to you from the Bridge and this week we are writing poems about ANYTHING starting with the letter “G”!    I also gave you four prompt words for you to choose from if you couldn’t think of your OWN “G” word – the prompts were:

(1) Garden (2) Giggle (3) Groceries (4) Grandma

I had a lot of trouble deciding which of these to write about but I wound up picking my favorite because it was “Mom” time for me when she worked in her Garden!   

“G” is for Garden

by Angel Sammy Kimmell, 7/26/17

Gardens are places where hopes can grow

You plant some seeds and watch the show!

Young seedlings pop up from the soil

Then comes the hard work but it’s worth the toil!

Veggies and flowers my Mom had gardens galore

She loved them all but the deer loved them more!

The critters would munch and get their fill

Mom’s All You Can Eat Buffet served food and they got no bill!

Time went on and she decided to change

No longer in the yard – she changed her range

She gardened on the porch and on the back deck

Plants she could raise and the animals were in check!

The woods around the house provided plenty for them to eat

The birdfeeders sunflower seeds were STILL their treat.

Our gardens are smaller but at least they survive

I always helped Mom take care of them as long as I was alive.

Sam enjoying the front porch on a pretty fall day

So did you write a poem today to celebrate “G” ???  If you did, put your blog link in my blog comments here and we’ll follow the link to read your WORK OF ART!    Or if you’d rather, you can put your poem in my comments – we can read the whole thing right there!    It’s FUN to write poetry – it doesn’t have to be in any particular format – it doesn’t even have to rhyme.   Just put your feelings and thoughts on paper and SHARE!   

Next week we’re moving on to the letter “H” and I’m going to give you the prompt words but remember you can write about ANYTHING starting with “H” – the prompts are just for fun and in case you can’t come up with something on your own!!   Ready?

(1) Happy  (2) Hobby  (3) Heart  (4) Home

I’ll be here next Thursday to see how you do AND to share my poem with all of you………………until then, this is your friend Angel Sammy heading back to do my work here at the Rainbow Bridge.   Remember, I’m always watching out for ALL of you………………

Love, Angel Sammy

 

Thanks Bro!   Thursdays just wouldn’t be the same without a poem from you.   We hope our friends write something to share too.    Speaking of sharing, Mom has some new photos of me beating up my poor old red tent.   It’s definitely on its’ last legs but I love it like it was brand spanking new.    I’m kind of tough on my toys……the old white mouse that belonged to Sammy’s has been reduced to a pile of rags (Dad’s old handkerchiefs) holding it together.   It looks just like a big pile of rags and I carry it EVERYWHERE – I even take it to the room where my Mom or sometimes my Dad happen to be and leave it so it can guard them and keep them safe!  

This was Sammy’s old mousie – just a white mouse that he used to keep up on my Dad’s dining room chair…..until I found it of course!

This my dear friends is what’s left of Sammy’s white mouse – held together with “bandages” !!!  BUT I LOVE IT STILL!!

I’ll be back tomorrow with Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop…….see you then!

Love, Teddy

 

Friendly Fill-Ins Friday!

Standard

Time To Fill In!!

It’s Friday and  I’m joining up with the Friendly Friday Fill-ins Blog Hop and if you’d like to do the same, click on the image above to visit one McGuffy’s Reader and use the Linky tool to join up with your blog link!  Our hosts are Miss Annie of McGuffy’s Reader and Miss Ellen of 15andMeowing. It’s a FUN hop and we just fill in sentences they give us and find out a lot of cool stuff about each other!

Ready? Me too!

Here are the sentences we got to fill in this week……………and I let my Mom do the filling in today – aren’t I nice to share????    Moms’ answers are in BLUE!

1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is go to the grocery store – I love to grocery shop.

2. My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is go to a doctors appointment.

3. I could really do without commercial television – we watch PBS almost exclusively around here.

4. I would love to have more cats – well specially ONE more cat – as a friend for Teddy.
Thanks Mom!   I’m not sure I want to have another kitty around here – I like being KING……….I get all the attention and I can’t imagine sharing YOU and Dad with someone else!   So there!
I was a lazy guy today – I did manage to squeeze a few walks outside in the 100+ degree heat with my Mom and Dad but other than that, I kept cool inside – – – napping in the sink OR like this in my ratty old torn up red “tent” !!
Mom gets a big charge out of me sleeping inside that old thing…..it’s so torn up now from me playing rough with it that it can barely stand up on its’ own.   Oh well……….can’t say I don’t USE my toys around here right?
Hope everyone has a HAPPY Friday – we’re going to be staying inside again for the most part because of the heat……………I’m sure I’ll be doing what I do best………….sleeping on my back!

Love, Teddy

 

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Time To Tell It All!

Welcome back to class students……….I must say you all surprised me yesterday because several of you got what I thought would be a TOUGH TEASER!    You are studying well which makes me AND Assistant Prof Teddy happy!

Let’s start with first things first – our FIRST COMMENTER yesterday morning when we went live at 8AM EST was:

Kitties Blue from The Cat On My Head

For Teaser of 7/18/17

CONCATULATIONS KITTIES BLUE!!!!!!!   Bravo!  You were alert and standing by and win a badge for your dedication to teasing!

Then we waited to see who might be the FIRST to correctly guess the Teaser photo that was sent in by our Guest Teaser……………….who was, by the way, Melissa whose kitties Calvin and Oliver are on Facebook if you’d like to visit them.   Melissa lives in this town and we both thought this might be a toughie photo…………before I show the photo to you again, let’s thank Melissa for sending in the photo shall we???

YES let’s thank her!!!!!

For Miss Melissa for Teaser of 7/18/17

Thank you Melissa and please thank your “boys” too!!! 

Here’s the photo from yesterday – it’s a photo of Nepean Point in Ottawa, Canada and the Parliament Building is in the background with a statue of Samuel de Champlain in the foreground!

Well done Melissa and thanks for sending in the photo.  It’s tons of fun to have your own photo for the Teaser and watching the guesses come in isn’t it?    I know too that our Teaser Cheerleader has done a special cheer for the winners and other notables from yesterday’s Teaser so without further delay, let’s bring her on!!   You might hear your name in her cheer….then I’ll tell you who won what!

Another Teaser and it was swell
Let’s ring the Ding Dong School bell!
Kitties Blue was on the ball
They commented first before you ALL!
Miss Carol chimed in with the first right guess
Others knew it too but she was faster than the rest
We owe Miss Annie a big old “thanking”
And Melissa please tell Calvin I send him a special Suzie Spanking.
Next week we’ll have another test of your geographic knowledge
If you’re really good at teasing you should be in college!
Look for me next week, I’m Smarty Pants Suzie
I hope the photo will be an impossible doozy!

Yep – our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was:

Carol from CAROLMAEWY in lovely Wyoming!      Miss Carol this is for you!!!!!!

For Teaser of 7/18/17

Concatulations!!!!

There were several others of you who guessed correctly and for all of you who did, grab one of these for your very own!

For Teaser of 7/18/17

Were you WRONG?   Did you guess but not the right spot?   Sorry about that but please help yourself to one of these:

For Teaser of 7/18/17

Uhhhh……..well Suzie I am sure everyone you mentioned appreciates that you worked them into your special Tell All cheer today – – – – you can go rest now – – – I’ve heard through the grapevine that you are going out on another date tonight – in fact, I have a photo someone found of your date!

I will say he’s got a nice car but…..well……good luck!

Miss Annie from McGuffy’s Reader, before we go, we want you to have this from US to YOU……….

That’s class for today everyone.   Remember, next Tuesday will be here before you know it – STUDY UP!

Your Favorite Geography Teachers  

Prof Angel Sam and Assistant Prof Ted

Before we go, Suzie asked if I’d post this for Calvin – Melissa’s kitty who seems to have a gleam in his eye for Suzie…….ahem…..I hope her date doesn’t hear about that though because he doesn’t look like the kinda guy who would APPRECIATE her giving Calvin a photo!!!!!!
