Teaser Tell All

Standard

Clowie says we’re safe to go so let’s get going!   It’s TELL ALL time……..

Alright! Time to give you the low-down on yesterday’s class and who did what!    It seems what we thought might be a bit of a tough Teaser wasn’t.   Nope – it was not long before we had someone who ALMOST knew then not long after that another person figured it out totally.

“That’s too confusing for me to follow!”

Well how about forgetting the back story and getting to the good stuff…………….let’s talk who was our FIRST COMMENTER…………………

“We’re READY!”

ANNOUNCING THE FIRST COMMENTER…….

Katie Isabella and Mom Carole

WOO HOO!!!!

Your winners’ badge:

We were the FIRST COMMENTERS on the Teaser post of November 17, 2020 – WOO HOO for us!

“Poo!  No matter how hard I try I never get my comment in FIRST!”

There’s always next week you know!    

Here’s the photo we thought would fool you…………………………but didn’t:

This photo was taken in Medenine, Tunisia!      Interesting condo arrangement isn’t it.   Well this type of dwelling or storage areas are apparently not an unusual site in Tunisia.   If you are curious and want more information in general about this area of the world, try clicking HERE to get more facts.    Interesting for sure!

“I still say it looks like prairie dog or gopher dwellings in the desert somewhere!”

Now we can tell you who was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER of this gem of a photo………………………….

SHARON of FRIENDS FUREVER!!

WOO HOO and the crowd goes WILD!    Congratulations!

Your badge:

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of November 17, 2020…..I got it! I really got it!!!

AND if you guessed right too but weren’t first, please feel free to copy this badge for yourself!

I guessed the Teaser RIGHT but I was NOT first…….sniff sniff….but I still got a cool badge for being right anyway!

And if you guessed but were WRONG…………..well, at least you tried (and you get a badge – below!)

I blew it….I guessed but I was WRONG on the Teaser of November 17, 2020. I still got a badge for trying though.

Now some of you may be wondering where the Cheer Team is today – I have a photo for you which explains all…….big party last night APPARENTLY!     

Everybody gets something!   And if you didn’t get a badge of SOME SORT you still get our THANKS for coming to class and having fun with us…………………………and a free lunch in the cafeteria!

Off we march to the cafeteria!

Hi Students!   I’ve got this hat figured out – just took a little super glue and I won’t be worrying about it falling off that’s for sure!   Now who’s up for lunch – today is CELEBRATING SANDWICH DAY!

 

The Menu:

See you next week class!   Your Professors

Teaser Tuesday is NOW

Standard

We have the all clear from Clowie and her team that we are secure so LET’s GO!

FIRST THOUGH – COMMENT!

 

Good Morning students. Time for class to begin!    We hope you got plenty of rest last night and are ready to study a photo and give us your BEST GUESS as to where it was taken.   

“Norman – WAKE UP!!  Class is starting!!”

There’s always someone who stayed up late to watch a scary movie on TV or spy out the window or SOMETHING.   Anyway, let’s give you the rules of play and the special badges for this time of year that you might win if you are on the ball today in class.

  

 

We’ll have these same badges available for winning next week too of course so if you aren’t lucky this week – you have another chance to get one then.

“I want one of those badges!  If I don’t get one I’ll…..well…..I’ll do something BAD!”

The Teaser is one of our Graphics Department’s finds but we have to admit our Graphics Department does a pretty danged good job all things considered…………Now let’s bring in our Photo Security Guard to show you this week’s “gem” !

Here’s today’s photo Professors!

Where was this photo taken??????

“I know – I know – it’s a prairie dog colony out in the desert – right????”

No Ralph – I can tell you that’s not right but I can’t tell you more than that…………keep trying………………..and while you’re studying, let’s hear from the Cheer Team!

We’re Late again for our ballet class
No lunch for us – we’ve gotta pass
If we’re late again our teacher will be cranky
And we won’t get away with any hanky panky!
So we’ll just say good luck to you students and give it your all
Some of you will win and others will fall
But we’ll be back tomorrow to sing your praises
And hope the Professors give us big fat raises!

Well ladies don’t count on those raises – it’s the School Board that would give you a raise and they are……..shall we say…………less than generous with compensation???    Anyway, we love you and that should be reward enough.    Yeah.   

Now everyone who is staying and not sneaking off to ballet class would you like to follow us to the cafeteria??    Let’s go!

Greetings students….just doing a little practicing with my Thanksgiving Hat – this thing isn’t easy to balance you know.   Anyway, hope you enjoy lunch today!

Enjoy lunch and we’ll see you tomorrow!!!!!

Good luck guessers! 

From  Your Professors!

P.S.   A special note about our friends the Kitties Blue at THE CAT ON MY HEAD.    We know a lot of you follow their blog but they have major problems with their website right now and are getting some help from host and developer to resolve them – BUT for now, unless you are SUBSCRIBED for email notice of blog posts – you won’t see their current posts.    Visiting them takes you to their LAST post which was for Veteran’s Day.  Don’t worry – they WILL BE BACK SOON!!!!!! 

SPARK on Monday

Standard

Monday already? Yep – it sure is!    Monday means starting out another week with a light heart and a right attitude.    At least that’s what I try to do.    What is SPARKS?   Mondays are the start of a new week and why not start that week with a thought or message or reminder of the fact that Mondays set the tone for the week ahead – why not make it powerful.     That was the idea that Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader had when she began the SPARK posts a few years ago – before her blog was hacked and she stopped posting. We hope she will be back soon – we miss her but in her honor many of us have been carrying the SPARKS torch on Mondays.   Just something to make us stop and think – prepare us for facing a new day.

My SPARK today is something I think about more and more as I get older………..I’ve sure met a LOT of people in my 73 years (although I admit when I was rwo years old I wasn’t particularly interested in the people I met – only if they had a treat or toy for me!).     Seriously – looking back I realize that even the people I didn’t really enjoy being around added something to my life experience and THAT’s what my SPARK today is about!

I’m sure we’ve all had the experience of being around or with someone who is determined to be difficult – contrary – nasty – kinda makes you stop and think……..and it makes me think that I’m glad I’m not that person.    I’ve tried in my life NOT to be that person.    And I want to finish out my life looking back and saying that I WASN’T that person.

 

Hugs, Pam

Sunday Selfie Hop

Standard

WOO HOO…..another milestone another Sunday Selfie day. Milestones to us these days mean another week and we’re still healthy. Hey – that’s something to celebrate these days.

Thanks to The Cat On My Head we do this Selfie Hop every Sunday. If you’d like to post a selfie of YOU, click the badge above and LINK UP. We’ll visit to say hi.

 

This week I thought I’d be cooperative when Mom got her camera out to take a photo of me……….well…………sort of cooperative.    I know she always forgets to turn off the flash when she takes a “front” shot so I thought I’d give her my other end to take a photo of and of course NO LASER EYES!!!!!     Besides, Mom says I have a cute butt.   I guess that’s a good thing?   So here’s my butt-selfie or to be more polite I suppose I could call it my tailio-selfie!

THEN off she went to Lunapic to jazz it up and when she used the GAUGUIN art filter – WOW – talk about POP – put your sunglasses on before viewing!!

YES she made a puzzle…………how could we NOT make a puzzle?    Interesting how the colors worked on this one – and what’s with that big dark spot on my back huh?????    

Click this Mini-Me for the puzzle and GOOD LUCK!

Happy Sunday To All!   Hugs, Teddy the Colorful

Bakin’ With Bacon for Thanksgiving and King Teddy

Standard

Hello Bacon Fans!

Ready for another recipe with bacon that you can introduce to your Thanksgiving table????    Thanksgiving isn’t that far away and this year being different and probably downsized for most of us as far as “other than immediate family” thanks to the virus – I want to try and give you some new things to try OR some thing that are simply too yummy not to add to your “usual” !!

Not everyone likes pumpkin (what??? I thought everyone did!!!!) – but it’s not REQUIRED that you have a pumpkin pie for dessert at Thanksgiving.   SO, how about apple?   How about apple with bacon?   How about apple with bacon and a DAB of “spirits”?    Of course spirits are optional but it’s just a bit of extra kick and flavor after all.    You won’t be weaving down the hallway to the living room after dinner – I promise.
