Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Hello All!  It’s “combo day”!

We are joining Brian’s Blog Hop to talk about being very Thankful (which we are) and also having our Thoroughly Poetic Thursday feature as well……….busy busy right?

This week I’m thankful for several interesting things – one thing is the subject of my Poetic Thursday – I won a trophy at Cat Scouts for my Derby car this year…….I was just so excited – after all, I was just barely one when I got the trophy…..imagine that.    I’m also thankful for my Mom and Dad being so patient with me as I learn about harness/leash walking.   I am a slightly rambunctious kid and only when Mom got a “jacket/vest” type harness could she really control me – I was able to squirm out of the old harness Angel Sammy had.   Mom says I’m like a greased pig (no offense Bacon!).    If you want to join Brian’s blog hop, just click on the badge below……..I know he’d love for you to share what you are thankful for – we all would!!

Now let’s talk POETRY!     This week our letter is “W” and as always, my big brother Angel Sammy “transmitted” his poem to me via – BRIDGE-O-GRAM yesterday morning so I’d be able to put it on today’s blog.   Angel Sammy is super busy at the Bridge but has time to continue with the poetry – it was his idea for the blog and we’re on our SECOND go-round through the alphabet.   If you’d like to join in, just post your poem in our comments here OR post your blog link so we can follow it and read your POEM at your blog!!!

“W”

“Win”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 5/18/17

My little brother Teddy

Proved amply that he was ready

For Scouts Cardwood Derby racing

A fast field of Scouts he’d be facing.

His “Teddy’s Moo Juice Truck”

Was fast and had good luck!

With help from friends like you

His votes were WAY MORE than “few” !

He placed in more than one category

With a big boy smile he basked in winners’ glory!

Dad put the trophy on the mantel over the fireplace…..

Waiting for another one to join it at the next Cat Scouts Derby race!!!!!

Thank you big brother Sammy for writing a poem about ME…………you make me feel like a BIG BOY !!!!!

The best part is that my big brother, Angel Sammy told me in a dream last night that he was EVER so proud of me – I already knew Mom and Dad were proud of me – after all, they helped me build the car I drove in the Derby – but hearing Angel Sammy tell me HE was proud – well – that’s the BEST!

I can’t wait for next year!   The only requirement for the Derby entry is that it be made out of cardboard – and we kitties love boxes – it’s a good combination!

See you tomorrow my friends!

Interested in joining Cat Scouts?   It’s tons of fun!   CLICK HERE    Tell them Teddy and Angel Sammy sent you!!!

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Ta Da!  It’s Time!

Hello class!   Here we are again on a Tuesday – ready to take a peek at a photo or two and figure out WHERE it was taken!   BUT FIRST – run quick and comment on THIS POST – yes – THIS POST – because if you do, you  might be the FIRST COMMENTER and win a badge!   YAY!

Now today we have a GUEST TEASER and I’m going to give you TWO photos to agonize over not the usual ONE!    WOW………you should have plenty to see and figure out with TWO photos right?   Remember when it comes time for you to make your guess, you must give me ALL info – in what town/city and what country (if not USA) or what state (if USA) the photos were taken.  Got it?   Good!

What say we start off with a rowsing cheer from our little dy-no-mite cheering expert, SuzieQ??

Hello and good morning class
I’m here to bring you some SASS
My last cheer was so boring
I heard some of you in class snoring!
I know you like me to be rough
You like your cheerleaders TOUGH
So come on and get to guessing
Or with your mind I will be messing!
You’d better make a guess QUICK
Or I’ll hit you with a great big stick!!!!!!

Alright!  Now that’s the SuzieQ we know and love and expect to hear on Tuesdays……………….right class???????????????????? RIGHT?????????????????

 

 

Since you’re all ready – let’s bring Mr. Silver Suitcase the guy with the photos for this week’s Teaser.   He’s been guarding them all week and I’m sure he’s ready to get that suitcase off his wrist so he can take a proper shower.

I’ve got the photos here Professor Sam!

One near and one far away…………….both of the same location………but WHERE is it?????????????????  If you know WHAT it is that’s even better although all you really have to do is tell me WHERE.    You have all day to inspect the photos and tomorrow we will have a TELL ALL class and you’ll find out who wins what!   Here’s what’s up for grabs:

FOR THE FIRST RIGHT GUESSER:

FOR ANYONE ELSE WHO GUESSES RIGHT:

IF YOU BLOW IT AND GUESS INCORRECTLY YOU STILL GET SOMETHING:

Now I believe we promised you some cookies today – there were a few whiners in the classroom who simply MUST have cookies in class even though your Moms will claim we are ruining your dinner.   Well tough.   You all work hard in class all day and deserve a treat right?   Right!

YES WE KNOW YOU DO!!!!!!

SARGE will make sure you all behave yourselves by the refreshment table so no shoving or pushing – there’s PLENTY for everyone OK class?

YESSIR!

I’LL BE WATCHIN’ YOU!

You may take your snacks out to the playground for recess!    Then back in when the bell rings for more studying!

Angel Professor Sam and Assistant Prof Teddy

Shhhh!  No telling answers until tomorrow you two!!!!!!

Bacon Boy

Standard

‘Tis I – King Teddy

(Bacon King in Training!)

It’s that day that I get excited about every week – just like my big brother wanted me to.   When Sammy left for the Bridge he entrusted me to carry on the tradition of bacon in the house on Saturday WITHOUT FAIL!    Mom is cooperating fully!    She and my Dad are “Baconators” too so it works out purrfectly!

This week’s new bacon posters are nice additions to our collection of bacon “ha ha’s” here on the blog………………..

SURE – that works!  Get a big huge fatburger and top it all off with a DIET drink!   Tee Hee

And the newest bacon delight we found sounds most interesting……………and look pretty yummy, especially the nice melty, drippy cheese in the middle………..check it out:

MMMM……..Mom figures this one is pretty easy to make – next time she makes mashed potatoes she will make EXTRA and give this one a whirl!    I hope I’m around when that happens!!!

This could be me in a few months if I’m not CAREFUL!!!!

Don’t feel bad about eating bacon!!!!!!! Just remember THIS!

Oh I agree with this FOR SURE! This is bacon deprivation!

IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just as much fun as getting to have bacon as a treat is looking for fun things to put in my Saturday Bacon post………..one thing is TOTALLY for sure………………bacon makes ME smile!    I also have this feeling every Saturday that Angel Sammy is up at the Rainbow Bridge having bacon with me EVERY SINGLE week.    I like to think that he’s PROUD of me for carrying on with the bacon thing on Saturday…………….and if you’re chomping on the bacon from time to time, rest assured Angel Sammy is proud of YOU TOO!!

Think of me when you enjoy your bacon!!!

See you tomorrow for Mother’s Day!

Bacon flavored hugs, Teddy

Friendly Friday Fill-Ins!

Standard

Fill In The Blanks!

This is a fun blog hop that is co-hosted by our friends 15andMeowing and McGuffy’sReader blogs.   They each give us two sentences with blanks to fill-in AND sometimes our Mom is the filler-inner and sometimes I do it!     Either way, it’s fun.   If you’d like to do some filling in, just click the badge below and it will whisk you off to McGuffy’s Reader where you can use Miss Annie’s LINKY tool and join in the fun with your blog!    Alternatively, you can answer the fill-ins on her blog in the comments – I’m SURE she wouldn’t mind!

The nature of this week’s sentences is such that it wouldn’t make any sense for ME – an adorable kitty cat (!) – to fill in the blanks so Mom is gonna do them this week.   Her “fill-ins” are in GREEN this week!    GO AHEAD MOM – TAKE IT AWAY!!!!!

1. My favorite cereal is Raisin Bran – has been since I was a little girl!

2. My prom was something my prom date (who would be my husband a few years later) and I decided to SKIP.   Instead we went to dinner and a drive-in movie – my parents never knew about that!

3. The funniest thing about my first marriage is that we eloped out of state because one of us was underage in Virginia – what an adventure THAT was!.

4. I cannot help every charity that I wish I could but I do what I can and always will.

 

That’s it for this week!   Thanks Mom……….maybe you could tell me the funny story of your elopement some time when I need a good “bedtime story” !!!  Tee Hee…………

Now, if you’ll excuse me Mom, I’ve GOT to take a snooze on the guest room bed!!! 

Happy Friday!  Love, Teddy

Friendly Fill Ins!

Standard

Filling In Sentences on Cinco De Mayo!!

We are happy to join the Blog Hop every Friday known as Friendly Fill-Ins which is co-hosted by 15andMeowing and McGuffy’s Reader.    It’s a favorite Hop of ours and if you would like to join in the fun and fill in some sentences they have challenged us with, please do!   Just click on the below badge to visit McGuffy’s Reader and use the LINKY tool and you’re IN!

This week’s sentences are below and Angel Sammy and I are feeling generous again today and thought we’d let GOOD OLD MOM fill in the blanks…………she needs something to do to keep her out of trouble (hahaha).   Mom’s fill-ins are in RED!

1. We still have a landline.

2.My most treasured piece of jewelry is actually SEVERAL pieces of jewelry:  My Mom’s wedding ring, my grandmother’s pearl earrings, and my OWN wedding ring that my husband David gave me.

3. This year, I have learned that the old saying “you’re not getting older, you’re getting better” is VERY VERY TRUE!   I’m loving life more now than ever before.

4. I would like to take a vacation ANYWHERE before this year is over.
VOILA!   Thanks Mom……….you did well………now what do you say we have a bit of a party for Cinco de Mayo???    There has been a lot of sadness with partings lately so we think a bit of a PAR-TAY might cheer everyone including us up!

Senor Angel Sammy

Senor Teddy

Don’t you just love Senor Sammy’s hat?   It’s a crazy hat he wore at a Cat Scouts Cinco De Mayo party when they had a “sombrero decorating contest”……pretty wacky huh?   On the other hand I look ADORABLE right?   Although not many one year old kittens have a moustache I suppose!

We could do a Mexican hat dance !!!!

We can smack a piñata with a stick and see what treasure pop out of it!

We can also enjoy some of the wonderful foodables that are traditional – here are some breakfast things AND some lunch/dinner things so take your pick – eat and drink to your hearts content then you can say you “DID” Cinco de Mayo with us today!!!

What a PAR-TAY!     Thanks for coming by…………….it wouldn’t have been the same without you……………….!

Teaser Tell All Time!

Standard

Class Time! 

Step right up students of geographical mysteries!   Have a seat and pay attention – it’s time to TELL ALL about yesterday’s Teaser!

Professor Sam and Professor Teddy I studied HARD all morning and STILL don’t know the answer! This was TOUGH!

You’re right – it was a very tough Teaser and we didn’t think ANYONE would guess it but guess what……………someone did!   More than ONE someone!     But let’s back up a bit and talk about who was FIRST COMMENTER………….we had a TIE for FIRST COMMENTER this week.

Da Phenny (trying to beat Angel Easy’s record!)

Miss Csilla of Trifles (Kolytyi)

Concatulations!

Then we must say we figured all day people would be guessing and getting nowhere with the photo we posted which was THIS ONE:

BUT we were wrong……………..because not long after we went live, someone guessed the right TOWN and COUNTRY which we thought was a miracle.    Who was that lucky ducky?    Well it wasn’t a ducky, it was my friend Timmy Tomcat !!     Here’s your badge Timmy!

He guessed the photo was taken in Brno, Czech Republic and it was.   This is actually the Town Hall in Brno.   Here are a couple of other photos of it:

It’s a beautiful building and you can CLICK HERE for more information!

WHO sent me these gems???   It was our wandering racewalker who has been racing all across Europe lately in various racing competition – the fabulous Leo!   This is for you Leo!

For Leo for the Teaser photo of 4/25/17

I have to say that another friend posted HER answer and was RIGHT ON THE MONEY guessing the Town Hall – that was my friend Shoko – and there were SEVERAL others who guessed Brno so for the rest of you who did, please take THIS:

Those of you who were wrong will get the fabulous Greenie…………….

Concatulations to EVERYONE – that really was a tough Teaser!

WHERE will we be going next week to give you a challenge?   You never know – it could be anywhere on the globe……….so make sure between now and then, you study up!   You know you want one of the winner badges – surely some of you have totally covered your homes in GREEN and are ready for a nice “FIRST RIGHT GUESSER” to hang over the fireplace on your green wall right?

Assistant Professor Teddy and I will be waiting to see you next Monday for the Pre-Tease warm-up then Tuesday for the BIG SHOW AND TELL!!!!!

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

“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!
