Tuesday Teaser Class In Session!


“Well Patrol – all is well at Teaser School – let’s report in!”

“Welcome To Class Students – have you COMMENTED yet??”

Glad to see so many happy faces in class this morning.    That must mean you’re excited to be in school today and anxious to see what the Teaser photo is for this week right?

OK – let’s just move on shall we?????    Our Teaser photo is a Graphics Department Teaser and if you ask us (and you didn’t but anyway…….) it is a toughie.    We’ll see in a few minutes what YOU think when we post the photo.     Before we do, let’s review the rules and the badges you all might win shall we?


“Maybe it’s just ME but I think it’s about time for some NEW Badges around here!!”

We hear you but remember our Graphics Department is – well – small.    In fact it’s one person working her fingers to the bone and I’m sure when she has some time she will do some new badges.

Let’s see if our Photo Security Guard can bring our Teaser photo is so you can get started on figuring it out shall we????




There you  have it – now you all can begin figuring this one out………………………..and good luck!   Cheer Team?  You’re ON !!

Here we are in all our glory
Every week the same old story
Impossible photos from far away places
We can see the confusion on your little faces
Just look for clues and give it your all
If you get frustrated just go scream in the hall
Oh wait better not that hall monitor is mean
She’s got the scariest face we’ve ever seen!

“Alright ladies – I heard that!!!!!!’

OOPS………………I think maybe we all better head to the cafeteria and have something to eat……………Brunhilda isn’t happy and if she isn’t happy she blows that whistle and if she blows that whistle eardrums will shatter!


“Hello and welcome to Tuesday in the school cafeteria – enjoy your food!”



Your Professors……..


SPARK on Monday


Monday again………you know what that means!   SPARKS…..   “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when she stopped blogging some time ago. It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it. Although Annie isn’t currently blogging, a lot of us who enjoyed her SPARKS decided to keep posting SPARKS of our own.

My SPARK today is one that I found “accidentally”.    I actually was looking for thoughts about dealing with disasters – like the hurricane that blew through such a large territory and is still churning its’ way northward.    So this particular quote stood out like crazy on the page of other quotes and thoughts about storms.     Then it kind of hit me that it actually is related to the “storm” of life.    Not all of life is stormy of course -there are calm seas and beautiful sunsets and puffy clouds and happiness around every corner but there are also dark days.    At any rate, seeing this quote REALLY MADE MY DAY.    But no matter what is behind us or ahead of us I think this quote is JUST RIGHT – especially for people of a certain age although it applies to EVERYONE.    Don’t you think so?


I’m going to remember this one…………….I’m SURE of it.

Happy Monday and Hugs, Pam

Sunday Selfie Hop


Happy Sunday – it’s time to HOP with The Cat On My Head…………..everyone posts a selfie and links up with The Cat On My Head and it’s tons of fun.     You may click the badge above and link up if you’d like to – the more the merrier!

I’m afraid I have another flashback Selfie today.    With nasty Hurricane Ian and all the worrying about friends in the line of the storm and what we could expect here, etc., Mom didn’t take any photos this week.   SO – forgive me if we drag out an old one of me for the Hop!

I call this one:    “Yeah?   Whaddayawant Mom?!”

Minding my own business – snoozing on my towel – and whammo – the flashy box appears – laser eyes were the only punishment I could whip up for Mom on the spur of the moment but she HATES when those lasers make an appearance so I think I made my point!

So we stuck this old photo of me into Lunapic and used the PSYCHEDELIC art filter (woo hoo) and here’s what we got:

WOW!   Now this is gonna make a heck of a puzzle don’t you think?    Well GOOD LUCK if you decide to take it on.    AND have a Happy Sunday too while you’re at it!




Friendly Fill-Ins Hop


Friday is here and so are the Friendly Fill-Ins from our co-hosts!    Four sentences with blanks to fill – not hard right?  Well sometimes it is!   Depends on the sentences.   Here are the four sentences we got for today’s fun.     As we often do, my Mom and I shared filling in responsibilities this week.   If the words are my Mom’s they are in RED and if the words are MINE they are BLUE. 


1.I’m usually a quiet, mild-mannered kitty cat but sometimes I can be loud and cranky like when I have to have some medicine!
2. A new show ( or book or food) I like is making (and eating) Palmiers – if you don’t know what they are they are DELICIOUS (click here)
3. I would like to skip the next couple of weeks and jump right to our vacation in Maine!.
4. I haven’t been very cooperative since I have to have eardrops for a yeast infection – I HATE IT!


So that’s that for another week.     By the way, Mom won’t let me sample those Palmiers but they sure do look good.    I think that’s kind of mean that she won’t share!
See you next week for more fill-in fun!

Big Teddy Hugs To Everyone!

Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Happy Thankful Thursday AND thanks to Brian for hosting this Hop every week.   A chance to voice things we’re thankful for.    You can click the badge above if you’d like to join in!

Knowing Hurricane Ian is slogging through Florida and heading north from there we will be super thankful to hear that our friends in the current storm zone are OK.   People we know are “hunkered down” or have left their area temporarily to avoid any problems but we PRAY that everyone who is in the area of the storm STAYS SAFE.    We’re thankful that we should only get a small portion of the rain and wind by the time it reaches Virginia.

We’re also thankful that we are having the most gorgeous Fall weather we can remember – it kind of happened overnight but it happened and it’s so refreshing!

Ready for Angel Sammy’s Poetry?   Good – so am I !


It’s Poetry Day!

Hi everyone…….hope you’re ready to read AND write AND share some poetry today.     Each Thursday I visit my Earthly brother Teddy and my Mom to share poetry with all of you.   I give you a photo every week to use as inspiration for your poem and you ALWAYS blow me away with your fabulous poetry.

Here’s the photo I gave you last week for inspiration AND my poem:

“Look Mom….No Cavities!”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell    ©September 28, 2022


Oh me oh my this has been so cool

Visiting this museum with kids from my school!

This dinosaur is a little bit scary

At least he’s just bones and not big and hairy!

These teeth of his are so shiny and gleaming

I guess the dino dentist does a good job of cleaning!


Ok so it’s a little bit corny but what a totally cute photo.   Being a little kid and trying to grasp that dinosaurs – so huge and amazing roamed the earth millions of years ago.    My Mom remembers whenever she and her brother would go to a museum they both would spend a lot of time looking at the old fossils and the reconstructions of such HUGE animals.    I wonder what this little guy in the photo is REALLY thinking??!

Remember to let us know in comments if you wrote a poem and give us a link so we can read it – OR just write your poem in comments……I hope you gave this one a whirl – it’s a really cute photo.    Speaking of photos – here’s your inspiration for NEXT Thursday’s poetry day!

Modern dance………..well – let’s say it’s interesting!    We’ll see how interesting when we write a poem for the photo !

Until then, stay safe, be happy, be kind, and if you’re in the path of the storm – be SMART…………………………..

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

Love and Light, Angel Sammy


Great poem Angel Sammy……….I’m always so happy to visit with you on Thursdays!   Thanks for having fun with us ……….

Love you!    Teddy
