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

Interesting Teaser yesterday and as you remember it was a GUEST TEASER and we’ll tell you more about that in a bit……………………..BUT FIRST as usual we want to talk about which of you students busted through the front door to the Cat School FIRST yesterday……………Drumroll please?

“Was it ME?  Was it ME?  I know I was early and I only had to step over two students to get in the door – WAS IT ME????”

Well Leroy the short (and long) answer is ………………………… NO.     If we can have a drumroll we’ll let you know who our TWO First Commenters were.

Our TWO First Commenters were:


Each of you ladies get a badge:

I was one of TWO First Commenters on the Teaser post of September 27, 2022. We were both FAST and FURIOUS!

“Hey – I stepped OVER Leroy to get in here early – neither of us were FIRST???”

Nope – sorry – we have a guard who records these statistics and SHE is always RIGHT!

Now to tell you about our wonderful Teaser photo.    Our GUEST TEASERS were Angel Binky, Peachy and Stippie.    They sent this photo in and we thought it was fabulous and also thought it might be a toughie:

A beautiful photo of Castle Burg Rode in Herzogenrath, Germany!

Thanks for sending in this photo to us dear friends………………’s a little token of our appreciation THEN we’ll tell everyone who the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was.

Our photo was used on the TEASER of September 27, 2022 at One Spoiled Cat!

Now shall we talk about who the SMARTY was who got this pretty darn quickly yesterday??????????????????????????????????????????????   Drumroll please!


I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser post of September 27, 2022! Fast and furious – that’s me!!

If you also guessed correctly BUT weren’t first, you get this badge:

I was right with my guess on the Teaser of September 27, 2022 BUT I was not the FIRST RIGHT!

Teaser Tuesday Class Time


“Things look quiet this morning Patrol – I think we can enjoy our trip to the cafeteria in peace!”

It’s TEASER Time everyone – HAVE YOU COMMENTED?  You better!

Remember if you’re FIRST COMMENTER (or one of the FIRST ones in the first 60 seconds of class) you will win a badge.    Now let’s get down to TEASER business shall we?

Gee you certainly look CRANKY this morning.    Did someone step on your tail while you were waiting at the door into school this morning????

So today we have a GUEST TEASER photo for you.     We’ll see how well you do with it shortly but first let’s review the RULES of Teaser AND the badges that you might win if you’re lucky.

So class are you ready to GO FOR IT?????


Professors here’s your Teaser photo for today!

Where on earth was this photo taken????????????????

Pretty place wherever it is.  I can tell you it’s not the town where I live in Virginia!

“Well I like the looks of that place…I could easily live in that castle!   Does it come with its own Prince???”

Cheer Team?  Would you like to provide this semi-asleep classroom with some TEASER inspiration please?

We don’t know where this photo was taken
But it looks like the kind of castle where martinis are stirred not shaken!
We like the looks of this place it’s true
But honest to goodness we don’t have a clue!
It’s up to you students to figure it out
While we stand here in class to cheer and shout
We’ll be back tomorrow to tell you the news
About who are the big winners and which of you sing the blues!

Thanks ladies……………………..appreciate the cheer.    I’m sure everyone is READY to figure this out BUT FIRST – we should head to the cafeteria for some REFRESHMENT – breakfast or lunch or a snack or maybe even just dessert!    Let’s go!

Hello Students!   Mary Ann and I are here to serve up your favorites!

Today’s Menu Choices:

Students, we will see you in class tomorrow for the BIG TELL ALL!!

Good Luck!   Professors Angel Sammy and Teddy

SPARK on Monday


Happy Monday.  You know what Monday means – SPARK!     “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.

I’ve told you all before that I sometimes spend an incredible amount of time looking for the “RIGHT” Spark to post on Mondays.    It has to be a part of me, something that means something to me, something I hope others can relate to, or even something amusing that might bring a smile to someone other than just me.     My SPARK for today is one that I’m pretty sure everyone “gets” but probably doesn’t think about but it’s OH SO VERY TRUE.   It doesn’t mean you have to be on the edge of your seat every second waiting to make sure you have your timing right……………it just means BE AWARE.    Time and its’ travel is quick enough in our lives without us getting so caught up in it that we MISS a chance to acknowledge what might be important – to us or others.    Don’t be in such a hurry.   Before you know it, time is UP.


Speaking about the passage of time – my sincere thanks to those of you who wished me a Happy Birthday…………………..another year has come and gone and I am grateful for each and every year I’ve had.    There were plenty of times I didn’t know if there would BE another year.    Just like my SPARK says!!!

Happy Monday!

Hugs, Pam
