Bashful and Bacon

Standard

Bashful (because he’s visiting me) 

Bacon (because it’s Saturday!)

Yes – as I always say (because Sammy said I should!) – it’s Saturday – Bacon Day – and it’s OH SO GOOD TO BE KING!!!!

But it’s also oh so good to have Bacon the piggy’s rock-star brother Bashful visiting me too.    I have a few pictures to share with you today of his adventures so far here with me BUT first, let’s do what we bacon-lovers MUST do on a Saturday!    EAT BACON!   YAY!!!!

Remember that Sammy is always watching……so we mustn’t miss a Saturday!

Mom has been known to say this on a Saturday…..would make things easier if we could just download the stuff!!

Really – who would serve eggs WITHOUT bacon?   Isn’t that either a sin or against the law or SOMETHING?

If I had that little face staring at me in the kitchen one morning I’d be grabbing my car keys and making a bee-line for the grocery store!!!!!!

This is not a “funny” poster – it’s TRUE AROUND MY HOUSE!!!

Well here at my house we are WELL above AVERAGE!!!

ARE YOU KIDDING????????????????????????????????

I do hope that you will be blessed with some bacon for breakfast (or lunch or dinner or all three) today!    We have had some for breakfast here at MY house!

Who’s Visiting????

Yep – Bashful is here for his second visit but it’s his FIRST visit with ME!   Angel Sammy was his host first time around!

Bashful had Thanksgiving dinner in W. Virginia at Sammy’s Auntie Joan’s house when he visited last time.

This is him sitting on Auntie Joan’s dining room table after alllllllllll that turkey was eaten and alllllllll the side dishes too!  No he didn’t eat them all – there was a lot of human help.

ANYWAY, we think he had fun……….this time around, we will have new adventures and I’ll be his host.

The first thing he wanted to do was pay his respects to Angel Sammy…..In the back of the box is a little book my Mom wrote after Sammy sent to the Bridge.

After that, we took Bashful to the grocery so he could pick out some favorite things to have while he’s here!   He had his own Bashful-sized shopping bag too and know what?   He only wanted ONE SPECIAL THING for himself – all the rest of the food Mom bought he said was great.   Here he is with his ONE SPECIAL THING:

IMAGINE THAT!    His own bottle of Guinness!    Heavy stuff for a rock but then Bashful can handle anything!

Next up he asked if he could look for some bedtime reading for nights after we’ve turned out the lights in the Casa De Kimmell for snooze time.   So we perused our library here at home and he found some “Bashful-sized” books to read:

He will have plenty of reading material that’s for sure!

Who knows WHAT we’ll do next…….but we’ll have fun that’s for sure!

Time for both of us to have a post bacon breakfast nap!

See you tomorrow for Sunday Selfies at The Cat On My Head!

Love, Teddy and Bashful

Thankful Thursday

Standard

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday!

Today we do TWO posts in one!   First of all we talk about being Thankful for Brian’s Thankful Thursday Hop – and you can visit him by clicking the above badge and join in the hop with the LINKY tool…..tell us why you are THANKFUL…….I’m thankful because I have a special guest here at my house.   Someone Angel Sammy met and hosted for a while and now it’s MY turn to show this friend a good time.   Who?   It’s our good friend Bashful the rock-n-roller who lives with Bacon at the Hotel Thompson!

We will tell you about his visit here in the next couple of days but just so you know – he’s being kept company by one of Mom’s stuffed piggies AND one of Sammy’s stuffed kitty pillows.   He has naps in this spot and since this guy travels ALL THE TIME, he naps almost as much as I do!    THANKS for visiting us Bashful!

Part Two of Today’s Post is:

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday which is when we celebrate another letter of the alphabet as we make our way from A to Z………….and today the letter we have to use is the letter “S” !   If you have written a poem on your blog, why not post your blog link in my comments so we can read it!  OR you can post your poem HERE if you like in a comment.    Poetry is the spice of life!!  Write some today!   NEXT WEEK WE DO “T” !

“Snow”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 4/20/17

Snow, snow, so cold on the toes

Icicles hanging from your kitty pink nose.

Now you need to hear this bit of news from the Bridge

There’s no snow up here from the sea to the ridge!

It’s sunny each day and breezy each night

But there’s no white stuff falling – that just wouldn’t be right!

Snow is for you back here in this life

At the Bridge we don’t deal with trouble and strife!

We work hard up here, don’t get me wrong

But “Let It Snow” you won’t hear as our favorite SONG!

I might dream about snow but I don’t have to see it here at the Rainbow Bridge!!

As all of you know by now, Nellie joined me and so many others here at the Rainbow Bridge last Friday………..she is happy here but misses everyone “back home” especially her Mom.    My Mom thought she’d put together a little slideshow of some of the wonderful graphics and posters sweet Nellie and her Mom did for us through the years……Nellie’s Mom is a wonderful artist and Nellie was a great inspiration for her I’m sure!    We will treasure all of our memories forever and ever………………these are just a few of our special  moments.

Teddy and I thank YOU for visiting us today!

Hugs, Angel Sam and Ted

 

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Shall We??  

YES let’s go for it and have some fun with this week’s Tuesday Teaser here in our Geography class!    Please remember the FIRST PERSON to comment on this post this morning will be our FIRST COMMENTER and will win a badge – this one in fact:

………..so hurry up and comment!!

Is everybody ready to begin class?   Sarge are all the students behaving to your satisfaction there in the back row where we usually have a little monkey business going on????

Well I did have a little problem with one student but I think he’s under control now Professor Sam!

Alright then we’ll move on.    This week’s Teaser is from a Guest.   It’s what I would call a FUN Teaser…………..I hope you agree.   Remember please that I need to know in what town/city/village and what state (if USA) or country (if not USA) you believe the photo was taken.    So be careful when you make a guess because I will need to know that information for your guess to be counted.

Let’s see if our SuzieQ can whip you all into a frenzy so you’ll be ready to guess………………….!

Here I be
Cute little me
Screaming myself silly
For every Frank and Billy!
Before you make a guess
I really must confess
I peeked at the Prof’s class notes
So let’s all take a vote –
Should I tell you all the scoop?
Make the Prof look like a poop?
No I’ll leave it up to YOU
And now my cheer is through
C’mon and be the FIRST
Or I’ll make you eat liverwurst!

Now that’s a threat that should put the entire class to work figuring this one out Suzie!   Good job…………………now Mr. Silver Briefcase could you please post the photo for us?

Yes sir….here’s today’s challenge!

Where was this photo taken?   Be the FIRST to guess correctly, and you will win this:

Be RIGHT but not FIRST with your guess and you still get this:

AND if you’re WRONG, you still get a little something for your trouble!

There you have it – now get to guessing everyone – the clock is ticking………and no it’s not a bomb – it’s a CLOCK and if you wanna win a badge (that isn’t green) you better figure this out ASAP!!!

NOW – I have a little announcement.   

Our Assistant Professor Teddy (who is my little brother) 

won some honors in the annual

Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby Car Race!

How cool is that???    You may remember what his vehicle looked like – the rules were that it HAD to have a cardboard box as PART of it and it needed to be a “creative” design.   In past years at Scouts there have been vehicles of all descriptions and this year there was a rocket ship, a jeep with horse cart, a rescue vehicle, a hooligan-wagon, and even a fire engine complete with a dalmation on board – AND many more.   So all kinds of vehicles were made and entered in the race.   Teddy drove a milk truck my Mom and Dad made for him – “Teddy’s Moo Juice Truck” !

He also looked pretty sharp in his racing gear!    AND we asked all of our blog buddies – THAT’S YOU – to vote for him because “popular vote” was a big part of who would win.   Also there was a GUEST CELEBRITY Judge who voted – the wonderful Jackson Galaxy of “The Cat From Hell”………….So the winners were announced yesterday AND Teddy won:

FIRST PLACE FOR MOST CREATIVE CAR

FIRST PLACE FOR MOST SKILLED DRIVER

SECOND PLACE FOR CROWD FAVORITE

and……

He tied with his good friends from The Cat On My Head for “RUNNERS UP” for the GRAND PRIZE!!!!!!

YAY FOR TEDDY!!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!

Thank you!    We TRULY want to thank each and every one of you who voted for Teddy in the contest………..it was sweet of you to do that and it made his little kitten heart FULL of love for all the wonderful followers we have with our blog.   We’ll let you know what the prizes are……….whenever we get them.    After all, YOU were a big part of why we won!

Sam Loves His Friends!

You are the BEST friends

Tune in tomorrow for TEASER TELL ALL!!!

Hugs, Angel Professor Sam and Race Car Driver Teddy

Tuesday Teaser Time

Standard

Time for the Tuesday Teaser……………….are you all ready?   Awake?   Alert?

“YES PROFESSOR SAMMY”

Alright – then let’s get down to it.    FIRST of all, we have a special badge for WHOEVER is the FIRST to post a comment of any kind on THIS POST………………so if you’d like to win that badge then get busy – go comment then come right back here for the main event – go on – we’ll wait for you!!!!!!

MOVE IT MOVE IT MOVE IT!

Welcome back……………………today’s Teaser photos are very INTERESTING ones……………very.    Now for THIS Teaser, I do want to know WHERE they were taken – what area of what country or state??   If you want to take it a step further, what IS this place???    One thing for sure is that it is INTERESTING!    Now shall we have our little Cheerleader come in to cheer you on first?

Today we have a doozy
A fun one we did choosy
We have a pile of Teasers
And while they ALL are pleasers
Some are easy peasy
While others make me queasy
This one makes me dizzy
Makes my fur go frizzy
It really is kind of scary
OFF the ground makes me a bit wary!
I know travel makes us WISER
But to go here I’d need tranquilizers!

HUH?    Well that’s a bit confusing…………………..I guess we’ll have to see what you’re talking about Suzie when Mr. Silver Briefcase comes in and shows us the photos (there are two today) – step right up Sir!!!  We’re anxious to see the photo now!

Here’s the two views of this place that Suzie’s talking about…..I have to admit, it makes me dizzy too!

Two views of the same place……………………….now it’s up to you to tell ME about it!!!   Where?  City and State (if USA) or country (if not USA).

Now remember if you are FIRST to guess this one right, you get this wonderful badge:

If you’re right but not the FIRST right, you still get to proclaim your smarties with this:

AND, last but not least, if you guess but are wrong………….you get this:

Professor Sammy, my Mom made some cookies for me to bring to class today!

Oh now nice of her Bobby!  Please thank her for us will you?

I’ll get some smoothies from the cafeteria for us Professor Sam!

OK – class adjourned to the back of the room for cookies!! 

See you all tomorrow for the TELL ALL – good luck!

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Thankful for Poetry!

Today is Thankful Thursday with Brian but as you know it’s also my Thoroughly Poetic Thursday………..If you click Brian’s badge, you will be transported to Brian’s blog where you can use the Linky Tool to enter your OWN blog post about what you are Thankful for…….

As for me and what I’m thankful for – today I’ll tell you that I’m THANKFUL for poetry!   My Mom has always written poetry – as far back as she can remember.   Mostly for herself but in later years she edited a book of poetry for a publisher and contributed some of her OWN poetry to the book as well.   One of the poems in the book was actually contributed by Maya Angelou.    That publisher has long been out of business but Mom says she met a LOT of wonderful other writers through that experience.    Poetry is a good way to talk about things you might otherwise NOT talk about or to tell a story with rhyme.     Anyway, her love of poetry led to us creating our Thoroughly Poetic Thursdays and some of you participate by writing your OWN poems and posting them HERE on my blog or giving us your blog link in my comments so we can FLY to your blog and read your poem!    We’re working our way through the alphabet for the second time – honoring a letter of the alphabet each week with a poem about something starting with the next letter………and today’s letter is “Q”!

“Q”

“Questions”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 4/6/17

Cats ask questions ALL the time!

“Can I have more food?  Is this toy mine?”

Sometimes no words are needed, we have our way….

If we park in front of the door, do we REALLY have to say?

“Can I go outside?  Can I lie in the sun?”  

“Can I chase the birds and have a ton of fun?”

If we sit by our food bowls it’s plain to see

Our question to you is “Can you please feed me?”

Questions are important – we know you ask them too!

Like…..

“How did I ever get along without YOU???”

Next week we’ll celebrate the letter “R”……………..and as we work our way to “Z” we’ll talk more about whether we should keep doing Poetry every week or some other fun thing we can do together!    Meanwhile, put your thinking caps on – oh – and don’t forget to ask a LOT of questions of your humans – they LOVE to talk so I’m sure they’ll be HAPPY to answer them!!!

Oui Oui, Mon Amis…..Je Suis Le Poet Extraordinaire!

Coming to you direct from my cloud at the Rainbow Bridge

Monsieur Sammy

Extra Extra Read All About It!

Teddy and I are Cat Scouts as you know – well Teddy is in the Scouts “CARDWOOD DERBY” Race and would REALLY appreciate it if you would VOTE for his fabulous Milk Truck (I know that sounds wacky but Scouts can be a bit wacky sometimes……the rules say you must post a photo of you INSIDE your vehicle AND  your vehicle has to be made using a cardboard box but it can be ANY kind of vehicle!!!!!)………Here’s Teddy and we wish we could show you ALL the cars but they are on the Cat Scouts site which you can’t see unless you’re a Scout.   Trust me – Teddy’s is the BEST (tee hee):

This is where you go to vote – There are THREE categories and of course Teddy is the BEST IN ALL THREE!!!!!    Trust me…….please consider voting for him!!  

CLICK HERE FOR SURVEY

Voting is open thru April 10th – we’ll keep you posted!

 

Teaser Tell All

Standard

I’m HERE To Tell You!

Hello Class!    Welcome back for the “FINDING IT ALL OUT” day which we call the TELL ALL………………….here’s where we separate the men from the mice (or is that the men from the boys?) – well it’s something like that.   Anyway, before we start we have to make a BIG FAT APOLOGY!

Actually it’s WordPress that should be apologizing……………..it neglected to SHOW a post yesterday morning until five minutes after it actually SHOWED it posted – if you can figure out how something like that can happen then you must work for WordPress because we don’t have a clue.   BUT the boo boo resulted in us telling a pile of fans here that THEY were FIRST COMMENTERS when in actuality someone ELSE was!

Shall we untangle that mess for you?    OK – my buddy, pal, and Cousin Bacon was TRULY the FIRST COMMENTER…………his post was at 8:51…………….he was the only one to post at that time……….but the FIRST posts Mom, me and Teddy saw were a pile of them that came in at 8:52AM from Friends Furever, Calvin/Oliver, AND Kitties Blue.    So Mom quickly told all of them that THEY were the FIRST COMMENTERS……………….WRONG!

Here is the BADGE for our ACTUAL First Commenter – Bacon…………….here you are buddy – wear it in good health!

For Bacon, April 4, 2017

AND, here are the SAM’S BOO BOO awards (which actually should be WordPress Boo Boo awards!) for Friends Furever, Calvin/Oliver and Kitties Blue!!!

SORRY PALS!

Suzie – maybe you can say it better than I did???

We’re sad as sad can be
Please hear our pitiful plea
Purrhaps we shouldn’t SAY
Who’s FIRST on Teaser Day
We’ll make you wait and wonder
‘Til you get mad as thunder!
“Did I, or didn’t I?” I have to wait and see
Or we can tell you what we think
And go on merrily!
I guess there will be boo boos
And probably some boo hoos
So let’s just keep on teasing
MOST of you we’ll be pleasing!
So don’t worry Prof Sammy
I won’t give you a Suzie WHAMMY! (this time!)

 

Gosh thanks Suzie…………….now let’s move on shall we?    Here’s the other part of the WEIRD day yesterday was………………..the photo was IMPOSSIBLE!   Nobody guessed it and I can see why because there just was NO CLUE in the whole darn thing!   It was what I’d call an IMPOSSIBLE CONUNDRUM TEASER!    It was a Guest Teaser sent in by Gracie who got it from her Mom’s friend.   Here’s your badge Gracie!

For Gracie and her Friend for the Teaser of 4/4/17

It was a DOOZY……………and it was a shot of the ocean wall in MONACO!    Yep – the Principality of Monaco – so I couldn’t say “what town” and I couldn’t say “what country” because it’s NOT a country!    So I just said “where was it taken” ?????

Boo….hiss….boo

Alright I hear ya!    It was a sneaky Teaser but once in a while we should have one that SHAKES THINGS UP right?    I’d say this one did just that……………..nobody guessed it and it was a big mess on First Commenter.

How about everyone who guessed incorrectly????   What about them???   Well you’ll not be surprised to hear that there’s a GREENIE for you!

I say we cut our losses and hope next week works out better all the way around – what do you think????????????

I SAY WE MOVE ON!

I agree with Sarge!

 

Good!   Wonder where in the world we’ll go NEXT Tuesday then…….guess we’ll find out in a week!

Teddy and I hope to see you NEXT week!!

Angel Prof Sam and Assistant Prof Ted

 

 

Friday Shopping and Filling-In!

Standard

Another TWO Posts In One Day! 

Today, we will do our Shopping Around the World post first.

As you all know, Shopping Around The World was started by Bacon from Pig Love and Fozziemum and lately Bacon has had several blog buddies “Guest Host” this monthly event – we did it last month and this month is Da Phenny’s turn!     This month he chose desserts or sweet treats/comfort treats as the item we should share a recipe for – – something we LOVE to have in our tummy.   We are to share the recipe but more importantly, we tell what the ingredients cost – because it’s amazing to see the difference in prices “around the world” !!

My Mom remembered earlier this week that one of her absolutely ALL TIME favorite comfort foods was a dessert and one of the few that does NOT involve chocolate.    Her Mom used to make this ALL THE TIME and she made it years ago but had forgotten about it.    What are we talking about???

Banana Pudding with Vanilla Wafers

There are a million recipes for this delightful treat and many ingredients are optional for sure……….but one thing they almost ALL have in common is banana pudding mix, bananas and vanilla wafers!

The recipe my Mom makes could NOT be easier……………you can dress the top of this up with whipped cream but my Mom just puts a layer of wafers on top.   Prices in our store in RED.

Ingredients:

1 or 2 packages of banana instant pudding mix (you don’t have to use instant but it sure is EASY!) – one or two means whether you want a LARGE dessert or small!   Mom uses TWO packages.   ($1.19/box)

Milk ($1.49 for 2%, 64 oz.)

Fresh bananas ($.49/lb.)

Box of  Vanilla Wafers  ($2.99 a box)

Make the pudding according to the directions – my Mom usually puts SLIGHTLY less milk in than it calls for on the box…….makes it a bit thicker.    While it’s setting up, Mom puts a payer of vanilla wafers on the bottom of the container she’s going to fill with the mixture………..then whacks up 2 or 3 (or however many you want) bananas – thinnish slices and mixes them into the pudding mixture before she dumps the whole thing into the container with the wafers on bottom.    After you put the mixture in, add more bananas to the top or add more wafers to the top – or put whipped cream on top or WHATEVER you want to do to the top is good!

HOW EASY CAN IT GET right?   Pop it in the refrigerator and it is a banana-lovers’ dream.

NOW – shall we Fill-In sentences???

This is another weekly blog hop which we LOVE to do.   We love reading everyone else’s answers too – really find out some interesting stuff about our friends this way!!  Tee Hee   This Hop is co-hosted by our friends Miss Ellen at 15andMeowing and Miss Annie at McGuffy’sReader.   Click the badge above to go to McGuffy’s where you will find a LINKY TOOL and you can add a link to your blog where you can share YOUR fill-ins for the below sentences!    Miss Annie does two and Miss Ellen does two…………This week Teddy gets to fill in and his contributions to the sentences are in GREEN!

1. The first thing I think about in the morning is waking Mom up without waking Dad up so we can have quiet time together (and she can feed me!).
2. The last thing I think about before sleep is finding my white mousie because I always bring it to bed with me.
3. I am looking forward to Cat Scouts this weekend – we’re having a Derby Race with cars we’ve made out of cardboard boxes!  

4. I am so pleased that Angel Sammy is teaching me what I need to know to have a safe and happy life in my forever home.

Now that was FUN!    Another double post – we did one yesterday too………What’s on tap for tomorrow?    Well you know by now that it’s BACON SATURDAY and Teddy will again be the STAR – now that he’s taken over as KING OF BACONIA it will be HIS post tomorrow.    Of course I’ll help him if he needs me (wink).

The Ginger Boys………………

Love, Angel Sammy and Teddy too

 

Teaser Tell All

Standard

The Scoop on the Teaser!

First of all thanks for helping us celebrate the 200th Teaser yesterday………it was great – we had lots of people stopping by just to wish us at least 200 more Teasers but also to PAR-TAY with us a bit and have a guess at the photo this week!

We tried to use a photo yesterday that would be TOUGH…………….we really did!    We had a Guest Teaser post and when we saw this photo we thought “that’s the one!”  – as it turned out, it was guessed correctly fairly quickly!   Oh well – maybe next week???

Here’s the photo from yesterday:

This is a rather interesting aerial view of the town of Brasov which is in the Transylvania region of Romania!   Just look at all those tiled roofs……and so many winding streets and courtyards.   We owe this photo to our friend Gracie of “Goodness Gracie” and SHE got it from a friend in Indianapolis, Indiana who has been here.   THANK YOU EVERYONE!   Here’s your badge of thanks!

For Gracie and her Friend for the Teaser of 3/28/17

I bet you wanna know WHO won all the special badges yesterday right?    Well, first of all we had a THREE WAY TIE for “FIRST COMMENTER” (that happens sometimes – we have lots of fast fingers trying to compete for first and as long as they all arrive in the first minute – they all win!).   Who:

Miss Csilla, Da Phenny, and Oliver and Calvin!

 

Next we have our “FIRST RIGHT GUESSER”……………………..and she was one of our FIRST COMMENTERS……………..Miss Csilla!

And we had SEVERAL others who guessed right too – all of YOU get this:

By now you know that even if you guess WRONG, you’re still a WINNER – and for all the WRONGIES, we have a GREENIE!

YAY!

Thanks for helping us celebrate
If you’re ready to guess – you’re WAY TOO LATE!
Miss Csilla won – she’s knows her stuff
Now don’t be jealous, don’t get in a huff!
Next week you might be first you see…..
Then maybe you’ll get a big KISS from me!
(OR NOT)

So we bring our 200th celebration of Teaser-hood to a close………………thanks everybody for making Tuesdays around here so much fun.    We will continue as long as you’re enjoying it – and as long as we have photos to share of course!

Tomorrow is Thankful Thursday at Brian’s and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday HERE.    Our letter to celebrate this week for a poem is the letter “P”.    Why not write a poem about something starting with “P” and join us????   It’s fun……….honest it is……….and you can spread your wings and try something NEW if you haven’t written a poem before………….

Class Dismissed until NEXT Week!

Teddy and I hope to see you NEXT week!!

 

Hugs, from Angel Prof Sam and Assistant Prof Ted

Friendly Fill-Ins Friday

Standard

Time for Fill-Ins on Friday!

YES INDEEDY DOOOO – time to fill in some sentences provided to us by our TWO hosts for Friendly Fill-Ins.   McGuffy’s Reader and 15andMeowing both contribute two sentences to us and we get to scratch our heads and come up with SOMETHING to put in the blanks!    After reading the sentences this week, we figured our Mom would need to fill them in again.    So she did, and her “fill-ins” are in BLUE.    If you want to fill in too just click on the badge above and go to McGuffy’s Reader to use their LINKY TOOL to put your blog post in!!   FUN??? YOU BETCHA!

1.In the Spring, I look forward to trying to get our grass to grow – I’d prefer a GREEN front yard rather than a BROWN (mud) one!

2. I would love to have a croquet party.   We have them in our front yard every year but unless I get that grass to grow – FORGET ABOUT IT!

3. Few know this about me, but my first job was as a civilian for the Department of the Army, Telecommunications Directorate, Communications Security Branch (how’s that for an important sounding office????).

4. No one is perfect!

Teddy and I are getting ready for tomorrow’s BIG BACON HARVEST PARTY here on our blog and we hope to see you there………remember, just show up – you don’t have to pawticipate in the harvesting – just have fun, eat some bacon goodies, wander through the greenhouse and stay out of the way of the tractor!!!   We’ll have a slideshow with pictures of all the harvesters who wanted to “strut their stuff” in their harvesting clothes and show you that they are not afraid of some good old-fashioned HARD WORK getting the bacon crop in now that it’s ripened up and is ready for pickin’ !! We will have a giveaway too that EVERYONE is eligible to be part of. The party will last ALL DAY LONG too so just come when you can.

We’ll be lookin’ for ya!
