Sunday Selfie Blog Hop


It’s SELFIES Sunday with our friends at The Cat On My Head.    We usually feature a picture of ourselves – hence the title “SELFIE” but sometimes I like to get extra wacky (or is it creative??) and feature something ELSE as a selfie.   Today is one of those days.

We have a landscaping service coming on Monday to blow all of the leaves that totally cover the front and back yard into our woods……….there will be three guys with huge backpack blowers and if it’s like last year – it will take almost 3 hours to do.    Better them than my Dad (so says my Dad).    Anyway, what’s that have to do with SELFIES??    I decided to feature our backyard for my Selfie today – I have had the best time playing in the leaves.    They are everywhere – can’t see a blade of grass.    I think the essence of Fall deserves a Selfie…………

Yikes....that's a lot of raking needing to be done!

Actually this looks pretty boring – I’m going to pump up the volume a little with Lunapic.

Well you have to say that I pumped up the volume alright – I used the “NOUVEAU” art effect and if this doesn’t make for an amazing puzzle – nothing does!   All I can say is it will be hard to have a FAST puzzling event with this one!!!!

  Just click this little mini-puzzle to do the BIG puzzle and good luck!!!


It’s gonna be a toughie!   Hugs, Teddy


Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Hello everybody and Happy Thanksgiving!    What a nice day to have a “THANKFUL THURSDAY BLOG HOP” hosted by our friend Brian.    I’m thankful to be part of the blogosphere community where everyone is supportive and encouraging and where we’ve made SO MANY friends!     Very thankful for our health, our home, and our TURKEY DINNER we’ll have later today!

Angel Sammy has sent us his Poetic Thursday post…………….so let’s get on with the show!

♥ ♥ ♥

“Happy Thursday and Happy Thanksgiving!”


Up here at the Rainbow Bridge we’re in a position to know all the things you have said you’re thankful for – and all of us Angels just want you to know that YOU – yes YOU – are on our lists of thankfuls too!     We wish we could be with our families in purrrrrson but we are there in your hearts as you are in ours.   Just remember that!  

Now let’s do our poetry thing shall we?    Last week I gave you a cute photo to write a poem about – a little guy (at least we think it’s a guy!) on a train with a fabulous expression on his face.    Here’s my poem for that photo:


Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©November 23, 2022


Mommy, Mommy please help me I’m falling!

Riding the rails is NOT my calling!

All I know is this train is loud and jiggling

And all I can hear is you and Daddy giggling!

I’m a little too young for a ride on the train

Maybe next year when I’m older we can try this again?



I think this little guy probably would enjoy the train a lot more if he was WATCHING it, rather than riding it!   Anyway, sure made for a precious photo didn’t it.   If you wrote a poem for him and his predicament, let us know in my comments and give us a link so we can read it.    We’d love to read what your thoughts were for this adorable photo!

As for NEXT week – how about this one?    

Even if all these water jugs were glued together (which they aren’t!) this would still be a rather amazing feat of balance.    Oh boy………… Mom could walk about six inches before all that pottery would be in a big heap on the road in bits and pieces.    OOPS.     We’ll have some fun with this one!

Until we meet again everyone – please have a wonderful Thanksgiving – we all have so much to be thankful for.    The world is a place that has plenty of room for improvement but one thing is perfect – moments of happiness with friends and family………………..

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

Love, Teddy

I’m very thankful that even though I never met you dear brother Sammy, I feel closer to you than you can imagine………………………….

Love, Teddy

Tuesday Teaser for Thanksgiving!


“Team – good job rounding up all the loose turkeys…..I think these turkey hats helped us blend in with them and made it easier – now let’s go report in to the professors!”

Greetings Students!   Happy Almost Thanksgiving Tuesday!   


Welcome to class and since we’re almost to the BIG day, we thought we’d do things up right with some Thanksgiving decorations – even the Security Team joined in by wearing turkey hats – now that’s real dedication isn’t it?     We have to say that we have a GUEST TEASER today that is probably as close to impossible to figure out as any photo we’ve ever used in class.    Yes we aren’t kidding.   You’ll see shortly BUT FIRST – let’s do rules and our special THANKSGIVING BADGES shall we??


Yes our Graphics Department gets a 40 lb. turkey to take home to fix for her family as a special thank you!    Of course she has to catch it first…………………

Now let’s move on to the Teaser shall we?    As we said, it’s a whopper.    It really will be a miracle if anyone gets it.     But we’re giving it a whirl anyway.   Ready?

Where Was This Photo Taken????????????

“You’re right – this is practically impossible!”

Well give it your all – and our Cheer Team will help cheer you up for the challenge!

Here we are looking silly
Tossing turkeys willy nilly
It’s our duty to be all cheery
But keeping this headgear straight makes is weary!
Anyway we wish you lucky as you study and guess
Your Professors expect perfection and deserve no less
We are thankful for the Profs, all of you, and Miss D
Now lets all head to the cafeteria for a lunch that’s FREE!

Sounds like a good idea to me ladies…………….class – let’s go eat!    Maybe we all need a little BRAIN food to guess that Teaser today……………………

Greetings Class!  It’s time to relax and enjoy your Thanksgiving Meal!

Good Luck Students!   See you at TELL ALL tomorrow!

Your Professors



Friendly Friday Fill-Ins


Happy Friday!    Do you realize that this time next week we’ll all have super full tummies?   Thanksgiving is the time when there’s a lot of food around – and a lot of us like that turkey stuff our humans eat.    Anyway, let’s get down to business with the filling in.   We have two co-hosts that each give us TWO sentences with words to fill in as we want to.   Here are the four sentences we got for this week.     This week if my Mom filled in the blank, the word is BLUE and if I filled in the blank, my words are RED.

1. On holidays, I usually have a second serving of _everything!.
2. I am thankful for _my home, my Mom and Dad and a happy full tummy!.
3. I would like to invite the neighborhood cats who come here often for a handout over for a feast.
4. There was only one orange tabby at the shelter and that was a was a blessing in disguise.  (we had hoped to adopt another ginger like Angel Sammy but we would have taken another kitty home if we hadn’t found Teddy!)

Another week of filling in – DONE.    Big thanks to our co-hosts for so much fun every week.    And since we won’t be together again for filling in until AFTER Thanksgiving – me and my Mom and Dad wish you and your family a VERY HAPPY AND FILLING (!) THANKSGIVING!

Love, Teddy

Thankful and Poetic Thursday


If you see that badge you know it’s Thursday and time for Brian’s Thankful Thursday HOP as well as Angel Sammy’s Poetic Thursday.   We ALWAYS ALWAYS start with thankfuls though because THAT is of major importance these days – to be thankful for things.    I’m thankful this week that Mom and Dad have been sticking close to the house because it’s so dang cold they aren’t going anywhere unless they HAVE to.   That means they are here for ME ME ME and when I want a breath of fresh air, one of them always takes me out for a few minutes or longer if I can stand it.    YAY MOM AND DAD.    Also very thankful that they will not be deserting me this Thanksgiving – they will be home and Mom is making the FULL TURKEY EXPERIENCE for her and Dad.   I don’t eat people food but I know they’ll offer me a little of everything which I will turn my nose up at – BUT IT’S THE THOUGHT THAT COUNTS right?     Thank you Brian for hosting THANKFULS!


Now let’s switch to poetry with Angel Sammy shall we?   Here’s the email he sent me from the Bridge:

♥ ♥ ♥ 

Hello Poetic Friends!

It’s OUR time to share some poetry for the week.    I look forward to reading what you’ve come up with to go with the photos I give you.   Sure is fun isn’t it?   If you have written a poem for the photo I gave you last Thursday, be sure and tell us in comments – we want to READ your poem so give us your link pretty please.

Here’s the poem we all were to use for poems for today followed by MY poem:

“Let’s Go Home!”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell    ©November 16, 2022


We thought this blue planet would be nice and warm

But apparently this place is a constant snow storm

Nothing but COLD from one end to the other

It doesn’t even help for us to hug one another!

We’re covered with ice from head to toe

The top of our spaceship sticks up in the snow!

We made a mistake thinking this was paradise

Turns out planet Earth is just a big ball of ice!


Well now if these space critters had landed somewhere ELSE they would have seen the paradise we know many places on Earth can be.    Too bad they chose THIS place to land but then again do we WANT to encourage them to like our planet and visit or do we WANT to keep our blue planet a secret for ourselves!!    I know it’s a weird poem but when I first saw the photo I thought these formations (trees covered with snow on a mountain in Japan) looked like snow monsters – then I saw the funny shape in the snow and thought “spaceship”……yeah I know – my imagination is strange but it also makes for some interesting poetry.

Here’s your photo inspiration for NEXT week’s poem.   Hope you enjoy this one too!

Love it!  Just love it!    This is a beauty isn’t it?   We’ll all have fun writing a poem for this adorable photo I’m SURE of it.   You have a whole week to come up with one too!

When we next get together it will be THANKSGIVING DAY and we hope to see you for just a few minutes in the middle of your celebrating with family and friends so we can share poetry.   

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

Thank you for being my Poetic Partner!!   Hugs, Angel Sammy

I’m  thankful to have an Angel brother !
