Teaser Tell All

Standard

Hello Teaser Fans!

Welcome back to the place where you can find out WHO wins WHAT on this week’s Teaser!

I was actually very surprised that the First Right Guesser came a knockin’ on the door SHORTLY after the post went live yesterday morning.   I thought it would be a bit of a toughie and so did the person who sent the photo in to us as a Teaser Conundrum.   Shall we give you all the info?  Oh yeah – lets!

The Teaser photo was from the Kitties Blue (The Cat On My Head) and it’s a great photo of the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia!   Kind of an exotic thing right?

Cool photo Kitties Blue – and to thank you for sending it in, here’s a badge for you!

For Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head 3/14/17

Who was FIRST to make a comment on yesterday’s blog?    Well, let me back up a bit to tell you that when we went live at 7:45 NOBODY was there – I think it was the first time in FOREVER it took a couple of minutes for someone to chime in and comment.   I think because of the early posting time it was too early for there to be a lot of Teasers-On-Duty right?    HOWEVER, after about 2 or 3 minutes someone DID comment and who was that someone who wins the FIRST COMMENTER badge this week????

Friends Furever

YAY – concatulations! This is for you:

Then it was not long after that we received the FIRST RIGHT GUESS and that was from:

Calvin and Oliver!  (and Mom Melissa)

This is for you!

Several other RIGHT GUESSERS popped in along the way yesterday and for each of you who guessed right, you get this:

Now I have to say that there were MORE than a few of you who guessed incorrectly – but remember – you’re still winners of GREENIES!  Help yourself to this:

So we had winners and we had fun – just like we ALWAYS do on Tuesdays right?

Make sure you are here next Monday for Pre-Tease Monday because if you aren’t here, Sarge might get angry.   You know you don’t want that to happen!

BE THERE OR BE SQUARE!

Teddy and I hope to see you NEXT week!!

Hugs, Angel Sammy and Teddy Too

Friendly Fill-Ins Friday!

Standard

We’re Filling In Today!

fillins

We fill in sentences on Fridays given to us all by our co-hosts for this blog hop, Miss Annie of McGuffy’s Reader and Miss Ellen of 15 And Meowing!   If you click on the badge above, you will be transported to McGuffy’s Reader and you can see all the other hoppers pawticipating and read THEIR fill-ins too….you can also use the LINKY TOOL and put yourself in the hop!

Today I’m doing the filling in…………and my fill-ins are in RED so you can’t miss them!   As usual two sentences are from Miss Annie and two are from Miss Ellen.  Ready?

1. My favorite kind of cookie is Temptations Tuna Treats (although now that I’m an Angel I don’t eat these anymore!.
2. Garfield would play me in a movie about my life.

3. Love is “all we need” (thanks Beatles!).

4. For Valentine’s Day, I will get a Day Pass from the Bridge and spend the day with my Mom and Dad – my two favorite lovebirds!.
Thank you ladies for this super fun blog hop………………we look forward to Fridays and “filling in” your sentences AND we enjoy hopping around seeing everyone else’s sentences.   We learn a lot about our friends this way!    I don’t think any of my fill-ins today will be surprising to anyone who knows me though.
You know how important hot air balloons are to me – I had no idea how important they would be a few years ago when I made my Valentine’s card that year but Mom and I found this while going through the photos of ME Mom has on her computer.    Anyone who doesn’t know WHY hot air balloons are important may not know that on December 2, 2016 I went to the Rainbow Bridge but on that day, on my blog, I was visiting all of my wonderful friends in blog-land in a hot air balloon courtesy of my good friend Easy Weimaraner – who himself had tragically gone to the Bridge a few days before.   It was an event in my honor planned well before ANYONE could possibly know that both of us would leave for the Bridge…..but we did.   Now we’re Angels together there.
Since then the hot air balloon has become VERY important to my Mom as a symbol of my life journey.   This was a Valentine I did several years ago…………….

“Introoooooders”

Angel Sammy Kimmell, 2/9/2017

One of the things that we do

For most of us this rings true…….

Is guard our humans from spies

And those nasty introooooder guys!

Squirrels, chipmunks, skunks and birds –

Apparently they didn’t get the word –

That WE are defending our humans and homes

So they’d be wise to find other places to roam!

We bark, hiss or whine to warn them to leave

Some will listen but some don’t believe!

So we run tell our humans that we need them to help

That the introooders will not listen to our hiss, whine or yelp!

When will they all learn what we all seem to know – –

They just are not welcome so it’s time that they GO!

(Below are some of my introoders of the past……!)

Oh we’re sure moving through the alphabet quickly………….I may come up with a NEW challenge after we get to “Z” this time around……….so stay tuned!    We have a long way to go to get there!

Happy Thursday From My Cloud!

Teaser Tell All

Standard

teaser-tellall2016

Tell All Time!!!  Come in and take your seats class!

Move it, move it, move it!

Move it, move it, move it!

Good Morning Class!     Yesterday in class we shared a doozy of a Teaser photo and honestly thought we would fool everybody.    It seemed to us that it simply didn’t have enough “hints” in it to give it away easily.   So it was a BIG SURPRISE when fairly early on it was guessed!

But before we talk more about THAT, let’s give you some other news about the Teaser…………like WHO was the FIRST COMMENTER?     We had TWO in the first sixty seconds after going live and they were my good friend Mr. Leo of WalkAndPigOut and Miss Carol of CarolMaeWy.    Congratulations to BOTH of you who were ALERT and ready to comment on the Teaser blog!!    Each of you is now the proud owner of one of these babies:

teaserbadgeoct2016-1

Would you like to know WHO my Guest Teaser was yesterday?    It was the Kitties Blue and their Mom Miss Janet from The Cat On My Head !!    I thank you for sending that one in because it was a “pip” of a Teaser photo……………..and this little badge is my token of appreciation:

teaserbadgeoct2016-5

Here’s the photo from yesterday and it’s a picture of the confluence of the River Danube and the River Sava in Belgrade, Serbia!  More specifically, this photo shows the Kalamegdan Fortress and that tower is the Nebojsa Tower.    Here at this LINK you can find out a whole lot about this spot AND even more about traveling in the city of Belgrade, Serbia.

teasermaybe2

Thank you to my Guest Teasers for this pawsome photo……………..so WHO was first to guess right?    It was one of my FIRST COMMENTERS who got that honor – Miss Carol!   YAY!   She guessed Belgrade, Serbia and since I didn’t ask what specifically was shown in the photo SHE was first to be right.   This is for you Miss Carol!

teaserbadgeoct2016-2

I have to give SPECIAL MENTION though to Mr.JackFreckles/Pipo & Minko for guessing right that it was the Nebojsa Tower at the Kalamegdan Fortress in Belgrade, Serbia – they gave me SPECIFICS but I got their guess AFTER Miss Carol guessed Belgrade.     WOO HOO FOR YOU TOOOOOO!!!!!   You get the below badge for being RIGHT.

BUT there were some others who guessed it right as well and for all of you, I have this little gem:

teaserbadgeoct2016-3

Everybody who didn’t guess right – don’t pout and don’t feel bad – you get credit for TRYING and you also get a GREENIE!!!!!!

teaserbadgeoct2016-4

Now wasn’t that just a TON OF FUN????   Why sure it was and I’m positive you can BARELY stand to wait until NEXT week when we tackle another mystery photo in Professor Angel Sammy’s GEOGRAPHY class with our ever interesting cast of wacky characters.    So until then…………

'Scuze me Professor Sammy but I have a question."

‘Scuze me Professor Sammy but I have a question.”

SAMSWEATER2LARGE

“Yes Bobby?  What is your question?”

“Professor Sammy if I bring you a nice red apple will that get me a better grade?  My Mom says when she was in school a million years ago teachers were easily bribed with apples and stuff and I just thought maybe I’d see if that’s something that YOU might like because I don’t think Sarge likes me and he’s always yelling at me and I wanna do good in Geography class so I just thought I’d ask and see how you felt………”

SAMSWEATER2LARGE

“WAIT a minute Tommy – catch your breath!  NO a teacher accepts no bribes for better grades – but I will say that if you try your hardest and learn all you can, both Sarge and I will be proud of you and you will get a good grade based on what you know, and not on what you GIVE to me OK?”

Yeah Kid.....you're alright.....you go to the bathroom a lot but I don't hold THAT against ya. Just don't try to BRIBE your teacher or that will mean 100 push-ups!! Got it?

Yeah Kid…..you’re alright…..you go to the bathroom a lot but I don’t hold THAT against ya. Just don’t try to BRIBE your teacher or that will mean 100 push-ups!! Got it?

And on that note, I believe I’ll just say:

Have an Angelic WEEK!

Farewell Jamison

Standard

A New Angel

jamison

Jamison – a tragic loss in Blogville

jamisonbadge2

Today is a day just for Angel Jamison………….

We’ve been following Jamison’s family blog for a while but didn’t really know HIM as well as we did his brother Noodle but just as we were getting to know him, he had a horribly sad thing happen at his house.   He was attacked by a dog and had a great deal of extremely serious and scary injuries.    It was terrifying to read about, and I know his family was incredibly sad that it happened.   He had the very best of vet care with a lot of repair work and surgery and had made it home where he was cared for with the loving hands and hearts of his family.    They did everything they could to make him comfortable and help him try to recover.   He only knew pure love in his last days…………

But the injuries were just too bad for Jamison to come back from……………he fought so hard to stay but in the end, he had to travel to the Rainbow Bridge – where I am – and became an Angel.

jamisonbadge1

I can assure his family that Jamison is adjusting to Angel life just fine.   We are all making sure he feels welcome and showing him how he can still visit his family “back home”………most of all I remind him that he is ALWAYS and FOREVER in their hearts.

Rest easy Angel Jamison………..

Friendly Fill-Ins Friday

Standard

Hello!  Happy Friday!

Today we’re filling in sentences thanks to the jointly hosted Friendly Fill-ins by 15andmeowing and McGuffysReader !   You can click on the link for McGuffy’s Reade if you’d like to join up with this blog hop – it’s tons of fun and a good way to meet new bloggers AND tell everyone about YOU!

fillins

 Here are today’s sentences……………!   My fill-ins are in BLUE and Mom’s are in RED.   We each filled in TWO sentences this time!

1. My guiding word for 2017 is ANGELS.
2. I’ve never been to a high school class reunion.
3. Truth be told I am superstitious about wearing GREEN on St. Pat’s Day – Mom used to put a green collar on me!.   (*Yes we could have said superstitious about Friday the 13th but I’ve NEVER been that way although many are!!

4.Lately, I have been very cognizant of the fact that now that I’m older time is FLYING by whereas when I was young, time went on and on forever (it seemed!).

SO, that’s it for Filling in today……………………remember to join in the HOP if you want to share your sentence fill-ins……………and even if you don’t, go visit McGuffy’s Reader to see everyone else’s fill-ins.   I guarantee it’s fun!
Mom and Dad are supposed to get SNOW tomorrow…….and maybe even a bit of ice.   I might get a day pass from the Bridge to spend with them because they won’t be able to go anywhere if it snows and I can keep them company!
SKIINGCAT
WHEEEEE!!!!!!!

NO SNOW HERE!!!!   Tee Hee
See you tomorrow for BACON CATURDAY…………

Friendly Fill-In Time!

Standard

Let’s Fill-In Sentences!!

FILLINS

It’s Friday and time for some filling in thanks to the blog hop hosted jointly by Miss Ellen at 15andMeowing and Miss Annie at McDuffy’sReader!    If you want to join in the fun, just visit McDuffy’s Reader and join up with the LINKY TOOL – we’ll hop by to see how you filled in your sentences!

Todays sentences and my responses are below!    This week I let Mom fill in again…….I know I’m spoiling her but some of the sentences just weren’t appropriate for ME to fill in – more for Mom I think.   Mom’s fill-ins are in RED.

1. I have seen Bob Hope play in concert.
2. I would like to attend an Air Force Band concert.

  1. In the dead of Winter, I tend to do more baking than any other time of year.
  2. The main ringer on my cell phone is OFF – my cell phone is only for me to use in an emergency so it sits in my pocket book 99.9% of the time and isn’t used!

So Mom did her thing……maybe next week I’ll fill-in…………….it’s only fair to let her do it once in a while anyway – besides, cats very infrequently go to concerts right?????????   Tee Hee

A little bit of explaining about Mom’s answers.    She used to work for Mutual Broadcasting when it was the world’s largest radio network.    She met a whole lot of celebs but her FAVORITE was Bob Hope.    Mom took her Mom to the concert when Mom’s boss, the President of Mutual, gave her tickets and Mr. Hope introduced my Mom in the audience before he did his show.   He had a band and Suzanne Sommers was appearing with him – they did some songs together but my Mom ALWAYS thought Mr. Hope was a REAL GENTLEMAN and kind man.

The Air Force Band is because of two things – when my Mom was making arrangements for her wedding reception when she was marrying my Dad, she wanted the Air Force Strings to play.   They had a small three piece group (violins) who would do weddings, special occasions.   They did play at Mom and Dad’s reception and it was wonderful……SO Mom thought it would be TOTALLY COOL to see the ENTIRE BAND in a concert once.   When her Dad passed away in 1993, he had a full military honors funeral and the band played “Amazing Grace”…….it was an amazing moment she will never forget.

So that’s it for me this time around……………complete with a couple of “side stories” about Mom’s answers…………I’ll see you NEXT Friday for filling-in again.   Meanwhile – HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
