Tuesday Teaser Class Is NOW

Standard

“Well team the grounds are looking good – let’s see how Officer Kitty is doing at the front door!”

“Hello Officer Clowie and troops – all quiet at the entrance this morning – the rush of students just went through the door to try and be FIRST COMMENTER………………….wonder who it will be this week???”

“Morning Students!   Have you Commented??  Officer Kitty says you all were an orderly bunch today!

SO here we are on another Tuesday morning getting ready to take a peek at a photo and figure out WHERE it was taken.   Are you ready for the challenge?     The Teaser today was one that our Graphics Department found so we hope you find it fun and that you figure it out so you can WIN A BADGE!

Let’s review our rules AND our badges and then go from there OK?

So now you know what you might win if you take a chance on guessing on today’s photo……………..we know you can do it – many of you have and many of you have boxes and boxes of badges in your closet right?    So, let’s see what today’s photo is shall we?

“BRING IT ON!!!!”

“WAITING……WAITING……”

So Class – WHERE was this photo taken??????

“I don’t know where it was taken but I know the Cheer Team is up next!!  Bring ’em on!”

“Ready for the Chicks!”

Is it Tuesday again for heaven sake?
For you students then it’s “make” or “break” !
You’d better hope someone knows where the photo was taken
If you do, we’ll serve you a martini stirred not shaken!
We’ll be back tomorrow to tell you who gets a prize
So get some rest tonight and don’t arrive with half-closed eyes!!!

Thanks ladies………..I think you inspired the students to work hard to solve this mystery!     Meanwhile, let’s head off to the cafeteria for lunch.    Students – you may come now or stay here and STUDY first!

“Well I’m ready to EAT……I need brain food for studying!!”

Welcome to the Cafeteria!   Hope you enjoy your food choices today!

Good Luck Class!!!! 

SPARK on Monday

Standard

 

Happy Monday!   You know what Monday means…………SPARKS.   Time for an inspirational thought – a little something to get us through another week.  Everyone is invited to participate by posting their OWN thoughts on their blogs – SPARKS inspire all of us!   “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when her blog was hacked 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.    Sometimes we need a little “spark” in our lives and these posts were meant to at least be a PART of that effort.   Please feel free to post a SPARK of your own on your blog and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way!

Had a conversation with someone today about aging………….Which led to me looking for some good quotes about that subject.    This one REALLY struck home.   I’m guessing it will do the same for you.

 

I am not going to complain about aging – what good does that do?    It will happen to all of us……………..IF WE’RE LUCKY.     Hadn’t thought of it that way right?   Me neither.

Have a great week everyone.

Hugs, Pam

Sunday Selfie Hop

Standard

Happy Sunday Hoppers!    This is the day we get to strut our stuff.  Not that we shy away from “starring” in our other posts of course but Sunday is SELFIE day at The Cat On My Head.    If you’d like to be involved and share your pawsome selfie, click the badge above and find the LINK so you can join us.

I’m afraid I’m letting you down AGAIN on a new photo of yours truly – it’s not that Mom didn’t have her camera – she had it alright – but the battery is dead and she didn’t go out to get a new one!    Sorry about the flashbacks lately.   I’ve told Mom she’s gotta get with the program!

Here’s a photo of me from about this same time in June of 2017 which was my first June with Mom and Dad after they adopted me from the shelter.

OOPS – June 8, 2018 must have been a napping kind of day for yours truly.    Looks like I passed out between Mom’s office and the upstairs hallway.    Sorry Mom didn’t decorate my personal area with a leaf or something but hey…..I’m a LET IT ALL HANG OUT kind of guy!

Did I dress this one up with Lunapic?   OF COURSE I DID!

WOWZERS!   This is one of the new art effects on Lunapic called YARN!

We like it – sure does look like yarn doesn’t it?    And before you ask – YES I made a puzzle for you puzzle peeps!    Good luck – this one might be a bit tricky.

 

Just click on this mini-sized picture of yours truly for the puzzle!

Happy Sunday!!

 

Bakin’ With Bacon and King Teddy

Standard

GREETINGS BACON FANS!

Today I have a recipe I have already shared with you once BUT The ROYAL MOM remembered she had this recipe and made these again this past week and said I needed to run it by you all one more time.   Why?    Well, why not.    These things are addictive and delicious and have bacon and chocolate which are two my The Royal Mom’s favorite things!    Seriously – it’s a delicious little snack.   Could be that we’ll just try to keep a batch of these HANDY for TV night!!

 

Bacon-Pecan Chocolate Truffles

 

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 ounces) dark chocolate chips
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 8 bacon strips, cooked and finely chopped
  • COATING:
  • 1 cup white baking chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1-3/4 cups chopped pecans, toasted

Directions

  • Place dark chocolate chips in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, heat butter and cream just to simmering. Pour over chocolate; stir until smooth. Stir in bacon. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Refrigerate, covered, 1-1/2 hours or until firm enough to shape.
  • For coating, place baking chips in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over baking chips; stir with a whisk until smooth. Stir in maple flavoring. Cool completely, stirring occasionally, about 1-1/2 hours.
  • Shape dark chocolate mixture into 1-in. balls. Dip truffles in maple mixture; allow excess to drip off. Roll in pecans; place on a waxed paper-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Refrigerate until set. Store between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

 

See what I mean?   Remember this?   This is the recipe that you can dump some bourbon in the mix if you like but The Royal Mom likes them this way best!    Whatever The Royal Mom wants…..The Royal Mom gets (well……maybe not quite all the time!!).

HAPPY CATURDAY BACON BUDDIES!

 

Your Not So Humble King, Teddy

Friendly Friday Fill Ins

Standard

Hi everybody!   We’re doing some filling in with our two co-hosts Four-Legged Furballs and 15andMeowing…………….it’s a great and fun HOP – wanna join in?  Click the badge above and link up.

We get two sentences from each co-host……………..usually my Mom and I split them up or I do all or she does all………………We split them up this week with ME doing everything in BLUE and Mom doing everything in GREEN!

 

1. SNAKES creep (s) me out.
2. I could use a refresher class in DIETING.    (I hate diet cat food…..but Mom makes it bearable by adding a little regular food with it – so we’re cheating)
3. Life would be much simpler if WE LIVED IN A SMALLER HOUSE.
4. I would like to BE ABLE TO GO OUTSIDE WITHOUT SNOOPERVISION, but first I have to NOT GET DISTRACTED OUT THERE BY SOMETHING TO CHASE OUTSIDE MY YARD!!!

YAY – we finished!    This is a lot of fun every week AND we read everyone else’s answers too and learn so much about our friends………….cool!    Happy Friday!

Hugs, Teddy (and Mom)
