A Baconian Morning

Standard

Good Morning From Baconia!

Things are quiet in the Land of Bacon – which is the purrrrfect way to start a Caturday if there ever was one right?    The Royal Cook has rustled up some goodies for all of us to enjoy to start our day off with the usual BANG!     Help yourself to the buffet then have a seat and nosh away on the delightful delights here in the palace of the King of Bacon-land!     There are mimosas and hot chocolate to top it all off…….

Now that you’ve piled up your plate – come and join me and Angel Sammy at the table !!!!

If you feel just a tad overloaded with bacon or breakfast (or both) you are welcome to help yourself to one of the many guest rooms in the Castle of Baconia!  

 

Trust me – these are comfy!

Have we started your day off with a SMILE???     Hope so.     Remember, we do this every Caturday in the Land of Baconia……………..at least as long as I’m KING we do!!!!!

Ahhh…it’s good to be King (Angel Sammy said so!)

Angel Sammy may be gone but he’s the Permanent President of CLUB BACON!  Help yourself to the badge to show you’re a fan!

Oh and IN CASE you haven’t heard…..today is Cat World Domination Day!   (at my house every day is……) This is a fabulous celebration started by Angel Sammy’s friend Sparkle and carried on in the tradition by Summer…….if you click her  badge below you can join in the fun at Summer’s blog!!

Cats RULE!!

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

It’s Double Duty Day! 

Thankful Thursday and

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

First let’s talk about being thankful – because we are – all of us!   I’m thankful to be here in this home with my two parents who love me and spoil me rotten (Sammy told me they would!) and they think they are lucky to have found me at the shelter where they found Sammy so long ago…….(what they don’t realize is that Sammy arranged that to happen on purpose!).    Also I’m thankful that Mom and Dad let me go for long walks on my leash where I can explore the whole big yard and woods……….I love digging in the mulch especially!    Tee Hee      Would you like to tell the world how thankful you are?    Then click the above badge and go to Brian’s blog where you can join in the THANKFUL hop – use his Linky Tool, enter your blog address, post about what you’re thankful for and THAT’S IT!

The other thing we do on Thursdays is let my Angel brother Sammy continue with something he did before he left for the Bridge last December – write poetry together!!!     We are on our THIRD go-thru of the alphabet now and this week’s letter is:

“B” !!  

Today you can write a poem about ANY word/thing that starts with the letter “B” OR you can use one of the prompt words that Angel Sammy gave us LAST Thursday for this week – what were they???

(1) Banana  (2) Bath  (3) Brave or (4) Balloon

Here’s the post Angel Sammy transmitted to me on my computer overnight!!!

Hello My Sweet Friends!  Greetings from the Rainbow Bridge!   I wrote my poem last night and sent it to Teddy to share with you today – I hope you wrote a “B” poem too!   Remember you can write about anything you want starting with a “B” or you can use one of my prompts.   I’m using the prompt “Bath”!

“Bath”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell 6-22-17

Some cats really love to get wet

But drinking from my bowl is as close as I’d get!

The first day I came to live in my house

When I was tiny – small as a mouse!

Mom said at the shelter I’d gotten quite stinky….

So she got baby shampoo and a cloth and put me in the sinky!

She washed me gently but I was VERY unhappy

She tried to clean me quickly and make it snappy!

She rinsed me off and sat with me on the floor

She kissed me and said that I was stinky no more!

A nice warm towel and Moms lap both felt good

I knew I’d landed in a GREAT neighborhood…….

That bath was the ONLY one that I ever had

I kept myself immaculate and never was bad

I kept my furs neat and clean as can be

Right up to the day that my soul was set free………

(p.s. we don’t need baths at the Bridge!!!!)

I hope all of you wrote a poem today to share with us – you can put it in the comments here on the blog OR give us the link to your “B” poem in my comments and we’ll follow you to read it!!    Next week we will do a “C” poem……………..you can write about ANYTHING starting with the letter “C” or you can use one of next week’s PROMPTS from me here at the Bridge – ready?   Here they are:

(1) Car  (2) Camera  (3) Cookie  (4) Carpet

OK?   I hope to see you next week – I’ll have another poem direct from the Rainbow Bridge for you and I hope you have something to share with all of us too!    Until then:

Love and Light From Angel Sammy

Thanks Angel Sammy…………..I like your poem.  Know what?   Even though Mom and Dad got me from the same shelter they did NOT give me a bath when they got me home that first day – I guess I wasn’t stinky!!!!

See You All Next Thursday!

Love, Teddy

To pump you all up before our Security Guard comes to display today’s photo, let’s bring Suzie in for another cheer………..she got your blood pumping yesterday with her Pre-Tease Monday cheer right?   Let’s hope it works again today!

I’m a little bit MAD
About that date that I HAD
The football player was mean
And a real skinny string bean
No muscles and no six-pack
No meat on his rib rack!
No more blind dates for me
My dates from now on I’ll SEE
I’ll try not to be grumpy
Though my “dating road” is bumpy
Let’s give this teaser a try
And I’ll try hard not to cry!
sniff……………

Gosh Suzie – sorry your big date didn’t work out.   Neither did Sarge’s………….!

Yeah well he’s a million years older than me so I’m not interested in him but I wish him luck……maybe if he SMILED????!!!!!

OK – let’s get back to the Teaser…………..Mr. Silver Briefcast/Security Guard/State Trooper guy – please come on down and show us today’s Teaser!!

If you say so Professor Sammy

Assistant Professor Teddy and I will look for you in class tomorrow – don’t be late or Sarge just might be waiting for you at the school room door………….or maybe Miss Dingleberry will be there which just MIGHT be worse!

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Thankful Thursday Time

(then we’ll be creatively poetic!)

Time again to join Brian’s “Thankful Thursday” blog hop – and you can too if you just click the badge above and use the LINKY tool when you arrive to add your blog link and SHARE!   Today I’m thankful for bunches of things………..I’m thankful that I have a COOL house to live in because it’s been unbelievably HOT around here and it makes me worry about all the animals that don’t have a home to be safe and cool in.   I know Angel Sammy is cool – he says it’s perfect temperature all the time at the Rainbow Bridge……!    We are lucky AND we are thankful.    I can stretch out in Mom’s office and enjoy the perfect temperature…………..

Being CUTE before I went over to my beat up kitty cube to snooze…..

In La La Land snoozing………

Now for Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday and today is the FIRST DAY so we will start the alphabet ALLLLLL over again for the THIRD time!    You have a choice of doing a poem about ANYTHING you pick which starts with the letter “A”, OR, using one of Angel Sammy’s prompt words to write your poem about for “A”.    The words he gave us last week are:

(1)  ANTS   (2)  ANGER  (3) APPLES  (4) ANKLES

Sammy decided to do a poem with one of the prompts and chose ANKLES!

“A”

Ankles

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 6/15/17

When I was just a little kit

It’s Mommy’s ankles that took a hit

I’d wait for her to walk on by

Then leap and grab a leg in a flash of an eye!

I’d wrap my arms and hold on tight

Then bite her ankle with all my might!

I know it was mean but it sure was fun

Mom would usually laugh – THEN RUN!!!!

What is it about an ankle that’s hard to resist?

I’m just not sure but I will insist

That kitties deserve a good ankle bitey

To settle for less just wouldn’t be righty!

 

HAHA Angel Sammy – that was a good one………………..!!    I can’t wait to read everyone else’s poem today and you all can give us your blog link to your poem in our comments OR even compose and show off your poem in our comments…..but for heavens’ sake, give writing a poem a try because it’s GOOD for your creativity and FUN for us to read!

Angel Sammy gave me four prompt words for NEXT week’s poetry challenge which will be with the letter “B”………………remember you can do ANY “B” word for your poem or use one of his prompts – it doesn’t matter – just write!

(1)  BANANA (2)  BATH  (3)  BRAVE  (4)  BALLOON

Now, what’s tomorrow???

FRIENDLY FILL-IN FRIDAY with co-hosts 15andMeowing and McGuffy’s Reader…….see you then!

Angel Sammy and Teddy too…………….

 

Ahhhhh Bacon!

Standard

Did Somebody say…….BACON?????????????

Count me in……….in fact, count a lot of us in – those of us who are true Bacon Buddies gather together every Saturday in the Kingdom of Baconia to celebrate our love of the stuff – eat as much of the stuff as our tummies can handle – and share whatever bits of bacon trivia we have picked up during the previous week.

Ever on the search for interesting bacon delights – we came up with just a few for you today………….are you ready?

Mom says she’s not too sure about this one…..but she’d be willing to test drive it (haha)

Mom loves peanut butter – Mom loves burgers – but together?  Not so sure about this!!

Mom says she could be “on board” with this one………

We’re totally on board with this one!!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHA – guess which direction I’d go!!

 

Believe it or not we’re having problems finding interesting bacon items for you to giggle over on Saturdays – we may have to resort to “INSTANT REPLAYS” of some our favorites…..somehow I don’t think you’d mine.   There’s something about bacon that makes you not mind seeing it OVER AND OVER AND OVER again!

I bet that my Sammy is on his cloud this morning at the Bridge thinking about Saturdays and how Mom would make bacon for him………talk about NICE dreams!

Don’t ever forget!!!   Enjoy your bacon today!!

That’s a ROYAL decree!

Happy Saturday…..King Teddy

It makes EVERYONE happy right?????

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

We Did It!

We made it thru the alphabet again!   We’re THANKFUL for that!

It’s Thankful Thursday with Brian at Brian’s Home Blog and one of the many things we are thankful for is that we made it to Z with our poetic challenge – the second time through the alphabet and today we finish up with Z.     Then we’re going to do something a little different (for those who want to).   But FIRST – let’s talk “THANKFUL” – if you’d like to join in Brians’ Blog Hop and talk about how thankful you are and what for, DO IT.   Click on his badge above and use the LINKY tool and link up to the blog.    Share with the world what you are thankful for.  

Teddy is thankful for Mom’s printer…………..WHAT???   Yes, strange but true.  He has a total fascination with the printer.  He can hear her turn it on and he comes running…….he sits quietly while it purrs, roars, gets warmed up then spits out a piece of paper she’s printed.   He’s fascinated.  Totally.   He doesn’t move………sometimes he will go over to it after she’s turned it off and try to turn it back on again.   He can’t QUITE reach the button on top and he’s not QUITE strong enough to push it down so no danger in him starting it but he obviously considers it a MAJOR item of fascination!

Excuse Mom’s messy office…….!!!!

Teddy also is thankful for his torn up, messed up, beat up, used up, barely there red kitty cube.    He plays with it until he’s exhausted then passes out partially inside on his back exposing his WHATEVER to the world!    Mom will turn around in her office chair and frequently sees this site – she couldn’t resist snapping YET ANOTHER photo of the little guy halfway in his pitiful old cube!

And last but not least, the little guy is VERY thankful that Mom has a studio couch in her office and he can lounge about on it and watch her work………..this is the first time she’s caught him in this particular pose though………..WHAT WAS HE THINKING?   Who knows.   We don’t try and figure him out- we just love him and his LASER eyes!

Now on to other business – let’s talk POETRY…………….in fact, let’s talk my THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAYS!!!

First of all thanks for sticking with me through the alphabet for “Time #2″……….it’s been fun and you all (or at least more of you than NOT) want to do it all over again so we will but with a bit of a TWIST.    Let’s do my “Z” poem though before we talk about “what’s next” OK?   

“Z”

“Zany”

by Angel Sammy Kimmell, 6/7/17

Sometimes life just gets so busy

Every day can make you dizzy

Moving quickly to get things done

Busy days start well before the sun!

You don’t have to be real brainy

To realize that life is ZANY!

At the Bridge we take things slow

Here on Earth it’s GO GO GO

Even on a day that’s rainy

My poor Mom says things are ZANY!

Keeping up with the house, Teddy and blogs

She says her days “go to the dogs”

I think she’s feeling a little INSANE-EY

Which come to think about it, means she’s ZANY!

 

HAHAHA……not my best work that one but whatcha gonna do with Z?    I could have done ZOO but then again………….Mom says “Zany” fits her to a “T”…………….

So in order to make things more interesting as we begin next week to start AGAIN with the letter “A” and work our way through to ZANY Z…………………….here’s the plan.    If you would like to participate in my Poetic Thursdays, you can do one of the below:

  • Continue as you have with ANY word of your choice for the subject of that week’s poem…….any “A” word you wish for instance for next week, OR
  • You can write a poem about one of these PROMPT words for “A”      A poem about:    (1)  ants     (2)   anger   (3)   apples  (4)  ankles

I will be using a prompt but you can feel free to do as you have done and just use any subject for your poem starting with the letter of the week!!!!     How’s that sound?    Fun I hope!!!    So if you don’t want to use one of the prompts, you don’t have to!   Just have fun – WRITE A POEM – and share it with all of us!   

Until Next Thursday!!!  

Love, Angel Sammy (and zany Teddy…..)

 

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Welcome Back Class for the Tell All!

OK class, settle down and I’ll tell you all you wanted to know about yesterday’s Guest Teaser!    Is everyone ready?    Well, first of all I will tell you WHO was alert enough when we went live yesterday with our Teaser post to have been FIRST COMMENTER…………….there were TWO winners!

FriendsFurever and Da Phenny    BOTH commented in the first minute so TWO winners of this:

Congratulations my friends……………..very alert of you to be READY for the post to be posted (huh?).    Each of you can show off your badge and I’m proud of you both!

Now, would you like to know WHO our Guest Teaser was yesterday???????????????????   I bet you would……………….it was our super good friend Miss Michelle of MyThreeMoggies and here’s the photo she sent in which all of you had to AGONIZE over yesterday:

Isn’t it a super duper photograph?   Really not a lot of clues to be seen in this one……..purrrrrhaps the church spires in the background but you would have to be VERY familiar with this town to know that even………….our surprise for you is that Miss Michelle did a VIDEO TELL ALL for you so if you’re all comfy in your desks, and ready, here’s the scoop on the Teaser!!

She also sent in some extra photographs of this beautiful city…………………my Mom and Dad visited Edinburgh some years ago and it truly is a wonderful exciting and gorgeous place to visit.   Michelle and her husband were there for a marathon but they also got to see some of the beautiful countryside:

I think I could go DOWN these stairs but not UP!

Oh what a glorious country Scotland is!

Status of William Wallace near Michelle and Craig’s hotel in Lauder

Now you’ve had your TOUR of Scotland……………….let’s thank Miss Michelle for the photo shall we??   This is for you Michelle and THANK you for the fabulous video Tell All too!

For Michelle’s photo AND video for Teaser of 6/6/17

WHO WAS OUR FIRST RIGHT GUESSER?????????

Miss Carol of CarolMayWY!   You get this Miss Carol!

Everyone else who guessed Edinburgh, Scotland gets THIS:

If you were WRONG – well – we don’t forget you – you get a GREENIE for trying!!!!

Oh how we love Tuesdays and Wednesdays around here…………………….class you did very well too so thanks for paying attention and not falling asleep during the Tell All……….Teddy is going to give a cheer (not quite the same as Suzie would though!):

I LOVE TEASER TUESDAYS!!

So I hope we see you in class again next week????????????????????   Meanwhile try to behave – or Sarge may be making a HOUSE CALL!!!!

EEEEEK is right!  

Angel Prof Sammy and Assistant Prof Teddy

 

Teaser Tuesday

Standard

Time For Class!

Time for teasing!  

Settle down class – I know you get extra excited to be here on a Tuesday morning but you won’t be able to concentrate if you’re wiggling in your seats!   Now first order of business is to COMMENT ON THIS POST – hurry up and do that because you might be FIRST and you might win this:

Alright you kids, everyone SIT BACK DOWN in your seats and pay attention to the Prof!

Today we have a GUEST TEASER – and just one photo for you to examine which you may or may not find a clue in – I didn’t see one but then I didn’t see the Italian flag waving in the breeze in last week’s Teaser (duh) so you can’t count on ME for that.    Just examine it and try to figure out where it was snapped.    Town/City/Village and Country (if not USA) or State (if USA).    Then on Wednesday we will have a TELL ALL and you’ll learn who the guest was, where he/she/it (haha) took the photo and WHO wins what!

BEFORE we show the photo though, I thought purrrrhaps our Suzie might be in the mood (and you never know about that…..) to give you a bit of a cheer to get your blood pumping to your brain so you can properly examine the photo.   Suzie?

Before Suzie cheers, may I pretty please be excused for the little boycat’s room Sir????

Certainly Tommy – Sarge will go with you to make sure you get back safely.

C’mon kid – let’s go!

OK Mr. Sarge, I’m done.

Alright now that we’re all COMFY, Suzie will cheer then our Security Guard will bring in the photo which has been locked in the super secret briefcase handcuffed to his wrist for safekeeping!!!

Today’s the day you all waited for
Anxiously waiting by the classroom door
Dying to see the test for this week
Hoping I’ll give the winner a tweak of the cheek!
Take your time and study the photo well
You’ve got until you hear the “time to go home” bell!
But don’t expect me to cheat and help you out
Or I’ll bop you with my pom pom on your great big snout!

OK!!!   I see we have our girl Suzie back in all her glory!     Thank you Suzie – you can go take your Prozac now…………….

Now, Mr. Security, would you honor is with your presence and show us the photo for today???

I’ve got the photo here Professor Sam!

WHERE WAS THIS PHOTO SNAPPED???????????? HMMMM??????????

Just to remind you, here’s what’s up for grabs with the Teaser – depending on whether you are FIRST, or just RIGHT, or WRONG!

The First to guess CORRECTLY where the photo was taken gets this:

If you guess correctly where the Teaser photo was snapped BUT you aren’t FIRST, you get this:

If you are WRONG – you guess but you miss the mark – you still get an award………… You will get one of these:

So make sure you tune in tomorrow to see how you did – and see how everyone else did………….because it’s fun to see who’s figured it out and who’s LEFT IN THE DUST right?    Just remember this – GREEN is a pretty Spring color so even if you are wrong, you can brighten a dull corner of your room with this badge………!!!!

Make sure you show up tomorrow at the usual time to find out who gets what……………..Until then – Assistant Professor Teddy and I wish you:

BEEP BEEP – make way for the bus!

Angel Professor Sam and Assistant Prof Teddy

 

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

DING DONG!

No it’s not Avon calling…….it’s the school bell ringing!

Time for us to settle down and get to the business of Summer School here at DING DONG SCHOOL.     Is everyone ready to tune in and study up for geography test tomorrow?  I hope so.   I just need to remind all of you that the photo we will use tomorrow for Teaser is a GUEST PHOTO – and you won’t find out WHO our Guest is until the Tell All Class on Wednesday.

Once the photo pops into view in the post tomorrow, SOMEONE (or multiple SOMEONES) will have a chance to COMMENT on the post first – and win a badge for doing so!    Being QUICK to comment is a good thing on Tuesdays!     When it comes to GUESSING the location where the Teaser photo was taken – you have to be accurate though………………you have to say the name of the town/village or city where the photo was snapped AS WELL AS the state (if you think it’s in the USA) or country (if you don’t think it’s in the USA) where the photo was snapped too!    So take the time to study – sometimes there are clues in the photos (and like last week’s photo even I didn’t see them!!!).

Now, shall we ask SuzieQ our magnificent and slightly off center cheerleader to come in and give you all a JOLT of cheerleading fun so you’ll be ready to GUESS tomorrow??????

Teaser Day is almost here!
It’s my duty to stop by and give you a cheer!
The Teaser photos are sometimes TOUGH
But I’ve got faith in you students that you know your stuff!
Study the photo and look for a clue
But don’t hold your breath or you’ll turn rather blue!
I’ve seen tomorrow’s picture and I really must say
Not sure you can guess it even if you pray!
I can’t cheat and give you any hints
So just come close to the screen and give it a squint!

Thanks Suzie……….as usual you have inspired us to work hard tomorrow at figuring out the Teaser………(or at least TRY to!).     Make sure your computer screens are nice and clean:

 

GOT IT? CLEAN SCREENS!!!

Thank you Sarge!     See you all tomorrow at a SURPRISE TIME……………………………..we’ll pop up and wait for you!

Angel Professor Sammy and Teddy too!

 

 

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Happy Thursday All!

Happy Thursday!     It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian at Brians Home Blog and YOU get a chance to tell the world what you’re thankful for.    This week I’m thankful for those of you who filled out Angel Sammy’s poll about Poetic Thursday – and we’ll talk more about that in a minute.   I’m also thankful for my friends – everyone is so kind and caring and it always shows but most especially when we’ve had so much loss of friends which we have had yet again lately.   Almost every day we get word of someone else crossing that Bridge……….it makes us sad even when we know those who are gone are no longer in pain, no longer feeling the effects of age, or some other problem…..we know their humans are sad to lose their “best friends”.     I wasn’t living here at the time with my Mom and Dad but I do know that they were SO thankful that everyone helped them adjust to life without my big brother Angel Sammy.    We hope TIME will help those who have experienced loss recently………..

If you would like to join in and tell everyone what you are thankful for – please click Brian’s badge above – you will be transported to his blog and you can join in the Blog Hop by using the LINKY tool.

Angel Sammy didn’t let me down (he never would do that!) because he transmitted to me overnight his poem for today’s Poetic Thursday poetry challenge.    Today is the letter “Y” and his poem follows this bit of info about our continuing with our Poetic Thursdays.

Remember the poll I conducted for Sammy’s Thursday Poetry Challenge?   Here are the results:

Sammy’s Poetry Challenge #2

Answer Votes Percent
When we last polled you, 75% of those responding said LET’S DO THE ALPHABET AGAIN….would you STILL like to do that? 11 73%  
We asked you in October 2016 if you’d like to do something DIFFERENT for poetry day – if you would like that TELL US SO! Leave a suggestion for me or tell me in your comments!

 

4 27%

 

Now about the above Poll………………….we were happy to see that there were more votes for continuing with the Alphabet Challenge for poetry day but there were STILL four of you who wanted something different – – – – so we thought why not combine them?

Starting with NEXT week’s “Z” end of the alphabet poetic challenge, we will give you a choice what to write your poem about for the following Thursday.    We will use the alphabet for the FOUR choices!    Example:

FOR LETTER “A” I might say “write your poem using one of the below four choices as your subject”:

(1) Aardvark (2) Antarctica (3) Asteroid (4) Applesauce           What do you think?  Sound like a plan?   Next week you will have your usual Poetic Challenge though – whatever you want to write about starting with the letter “Z” goes……….but we will give you FOUR WORDS with next week’s post for us all to start with the following week – maybe I should use those “SAMPLE” words I just told you????    I’ll consult with Angel Sammy!

Greetings from the Rainbow Bridge my friends!   As promised, I transmitted this poem to my little brother Teddy last night in his dreams…….and he is sharing it with you on my behalf for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday!!!    

“Y”

 “Yellow”

by Angel Sammy Kimmell, 6/1/17

Yellow is the shining sun

Yellow goldfinches having fun

Yellow buttercups in the breeze

Yellow lemon ice from the freeze!

Yellow grass turns green with lime

Yellow tarnish on silver over time

Yellow nip nanners are a kitty’s delight

Yellow moon shining in the sky at night

Yellow old love letters tucked away

Yellow sun hiding on a rainy day.

 

Thank you Angel Sammy………………..I look forward to your weekly “transmissions” of your poems AND to your continued guidance and love even though you are almost always at the Bridge now.   I enjoyed your visits and I’m sure you will from time to time but you are where you need to be now – and I will carry on taking care of Mom and Dad for BOTH of us!!!!

Now for some confessions………….Mom thinks I’m a crazy boy because I have totally destroyed the first “kitty cube” she got for me to play in…..I still have it mind you – but Mom got me a NEW one a while ago – a pretty blue one which is not receiving the degree of KITTY KRAZIES that the poor red one did.    So here’s the deal – I want to keep BOTH of them and I play in BOTH of them all the time – every single morning in fact.   Mom and I hang out in her office before Dad gets up and part of what we do is play like crazy in my cubes!

See how wonky the old one is – from me laying all over it and beating it up like mad – bunny kicking, biting, attacking, etc.???   I can’t help it – I love playing in it and using it as a launch pad to land inside the blue one.   Yes – this is part of growing up I guess – destroying toys and having fun!    Also that purple ribbon is my current FAVORITE toy.   I drag it all over the house – this morning Mom found it on her pillow and didn’t even know that I’d deposited it there in the middle of the night!    Tee Hee

Tomorrow is Friday!   We’ll be doing the Friendly Fill-In blog hop…………will you??????????????????

Love, Teddy the Tent Destroyer
