Rewarding Saturday!


Hi Everybody!

It’s a great day – not just because I get bacon on my breakfast menu BUT because I just love Saturday…..also I have to “crow” about a couple of awards that I was lucky enough to get this past week!

This one I got from my good friend and Mom to many, MANY Aussie animals, Fozziemom!!  I have this one displayed already so I won’t display it again AND I think almost everybody has this award but if you don’t please honor me by taking it………it’s nice to be part of a FAMILY – furry or otherwise!


Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOO much!!!!!

This next one I got from my favorite cowgirl in the whole wide world, Miss Marcey at Hot Rod Cow Girl.    I actually already have this one too although the badge is different – and this is such a smiley sun – I love it!  It’s the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award……in a different form than I have seen it before.   If you’d like to have this one too, please do take it and wear it with pride from your friend Sammy.

WonderfulTeamMemberReadershipAwardThank you SOOOOOOOOOOO much too!!!!!

Two award nominations and bacon.  Does Saturday get any better than this?????   Oh – and YES Mommy – you know I love you better than any award or even bacon……………but if I need to remind you of that………….


Which reminds me, I read on The Cat On My Head that August 31st is National Bacon Day!  How cool is that?   Seems I really DO have my OWN holiday after all!!

Happy Saturday Everybody……….Kitty Hugs, Sammy

Tuesday Teaser


WOO WOO! It’s that time again………seems like Tuesdays roll around pretty quickly these days don’t you think? Or is it just that I get excited to try and stump you by making you put your thinking caps on and grabbing your Atlas to try and find WHERE these pictures that I post are being taken????? WHATEVER – it’s fun right?

So this week we have a Guest Teaser just like I told you……..and our Guest was on a vacation and took lots of photos where they visited including these three. Yes they were taken in the same town – but WHERE was the town and what was the NAME of the town???? That’s your mission should you accept it…..and in order to win hugs you have to be right and specific. What TOWN and where is the TOWN???? One of you guessers – whoever is FIRST with the right answer gets YOU KNOW WHAT!

The Much Coveted First Right Guesser Award....

The Much Coveted First Right Guesser Award….

Everyone else who guesses the right spot gets YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE!

You guessed the Teaser correctly!

You guessed the Teaser correctly!

So here’s the photos from our awesome Guest Teaser……………..





Tomorrow the “Tell All” will indeed tell all……..and we’ll see who the winners are and hand out the appropriate accolades (gee Mom, I used a big word in my bloggy!).

As if that wasn’t enough excitement on a Tuesday, I have to tell you that my good buddy Nerissa kindly gave me TWO awards! TWO………and I’m very lucky to get them especially since I have neither of them already. Wanna know what they are? WHY SURE YOU DO!

The first award Nissy passed to me is a little bit confusing……………or maybe I should say it’s a lot confusing……………well, maybe if I just show you the rules you’ll see what I mean???  The award is quite cool looking…………

pmaward - planet purrth award

It’s called THE PRIME MINISTERETTE OF PLANET PURRTH AWARD (wowzer meowzer that’s a fancy name isn’t it???)…….and here’s the deal:

“In their infinite wisdom, the Purrime Ministerettes have made seven rules with which we have to comply to formally accept the award:”

1.  Bow for your Purrime Ministerettes and confirm on your blog you have done so.
2.  Show a picture of you watching Purrime Ministerette movies.   Pictures or it didn’t happen.
3.  Tell Planet Purrth that it needs a change and explain what kind of change you have in mind.
4.  Ask your Purrime Ministerettes what you never dared to ask before.
5.  Bow again for your purrime Ministerettes and confirm on your blog you have done so.
6.  Forward the Purrime Ministerette of Planet purrth Award to at least 3 other blogging anipals.
7.  Do not change the rules without explicit written Purrime Ministerette purrmission.

See what I mean?  The first thing I said (and Nissy kind of said too when HE got it) was “HUH” ??????

I have to say that #1 was easy because I bow all the time (well actually I’m just stretching but Mom says it looks like a bow so that’s good enough for me!).  #2 is less easy because actually I can’t stay awake long enough to watch ANY movies…..so no photo of that cuz it ain’t gonna happen.  #3 I should like to suggest that a change be made in the way everyone who lives on Planet Purrth treats the planet itself – we need to be nicer to it – quit trashing the place and making the climate all topsy turvy – WE CAN DO THAT!   #4 is tough but I can say that something I’ve never dared to ask is WHO PUT HUMANS IN CHARGE OF ANIMALS WHEN ANIMALS ARE SO MUCH MORE CAPABLE OF RULING THAN HUMANS???!!!  #5 is bowing again and I’ll give another stretch to comply with that one.  #6 forwarding the award to three other blogging buddies?  That’s another easy one – I’d like to pass this one on to:

Austin at CATachresis

Remy at One Blue Dog

Easy at Easy Weimaraner

And #7 trust me – I wouldn’t DREAM of changing the rules so no worries there…..besides I don’t understand the rules so how can I change them??????

Secondly, Nissy gave me a brand new award…..this one he created because he’s celebrating the AWESOME fact that he reached 50,000 hits on his blog – an incredible number right?  Right!  Hence the creation of the MY FAVORITE THINGS AWARD.  The rules for this one are super easy………….(I like awards I can figure out – don’t we all??).

50,000 award

All I have to do is thank the blogger who nominated me (Nissy of course and THANK YOU MY GOOD FRIEND for the award!!).  Link to them which I’m doing RIGHT HERE, and tell what my six favorite things are then pass it on to whoever I want to!

My six favorite things are:

  1. BACON
  2. NAPS
  3. LAPS

Who will I pass this on to?

Mollie and Alfie at Mollie’s Dog Treats

Texas at Texas Cat New York

Misaki at The Misadventures of Misaki

Sundae at These Days of Mine

Since I could go on and on and on and on listing friends, and this blog which is already long would be impossibly long – please my dear friends, if you would like to take this award and comply with the rules and pass it on to your friends in the blogosphere, please do!

Caturday Award Catch-Up


Happy Caturday everybody in Blogland !

Yesterday after talking it up about my Mom’s mystery novel I included a Pee Ess that today I’d thank my beautiful friend Misaki for honoring me with a couple of awards.  SO, that’s what I’m going to do!

She very sweetly nominated me for two awards……..one of them I already have but the other is a “new one” on me……..Here they are:

shine-on-awardThis is the one I already had but it’s just so beautiful I’m reposting it…………there’s something kind of magical about the artwork on this don’t you think??

dragonsloyaltyawardThis is a new one – the Dragon’s Loyalty Award – and it’s quite pretty too isn’t it?  Very colorful and who doesn’t like a dragon???!!!  I like to watch dragonflies in my yard – that’s close right?

My awards on the side of my page go ON and ON and ON – and each and every one of them are important to me in some special way.   Mostly for me it means that I have friends and they think my blog is worthy of some kind of recognition……that feels great don’t you think?

Since I already received the Shine On some while ago, I thought I’d comply with the rules of the Dragon’s Loyalty Award (well, MOSTLY comply anyway!!!).


This award is to be given to people who are loyal to your blog or to someone you follow loyally.  You should:

  • Display the award
  • Announce you’ve won it and link back to the person who nominated you
  • Give the award to 15 nominees
  • Post seven interesting things about your blog

Well, I intend to display it, have announced it and linked back to Misaki above, and now for the 7 interesting things about my blog then my nominees last!

  1. I think it’s interesting that Mom chose to let ME speak in my blog rather than her being the “voice” of the blog (although I do allow her to talk once in a while!)
  2. I think it’s interesting that every week I try to give my followers a challenge (that darned Tuesday Teaser that drives you all crazy!)
  3. I think it’s interesting that I blog EVERY SINGLE day instead of once a week (although my Mom doesn’t necessarily agree since she spends LOTSA time at the keyboard helping me!)
  4. I think it’s interesting that I have followers who are birds, fish, dogs, cats, mini pigs, guinea pigs, AND even humans without pets at all!
  5. I think it’s interesting that my blog is read by bloggers who live all over the world – even as far away as Bali!
  6. I think it’s interesting that I’ve managed to list FIVE things that are interesting about my blog so far.
  7. I think it’s interesting that I can’t think of ONE LAST thing that’s interesting about my blog.  (I know – I’m cheating aren’t I??)

Nominations?  Well, here’s where I’m going to stray from the rules.  I’d like any of you who don’t have the Dragon’s Loyalty award but who would like to TRY (notice I said TRY since that’s all I was able to manage) to comply to take the award for yourselves!

If you don’t know Misaki everybody (and who doesn’t know her?  I’m not sure anyone doesn’t know her!!!!)……….but if you don’t, please visit her.  She’s beautiful, very generous, very happy, and she loves her Mum and Dad a bunch.  Just like I love mine!

Now – onward to Caturday……………..which means (as you all know) BACON!   BACON, BACON, BACON (I just enjoy saying that word almost as much as eating it!).



See you all tomorrow for Silent Sunday!!!

Pee Ess………..Don’t forget Henry’s birthday is May 31st AND he’s having a birthday cake decorating contest !   Also, don’t forget Odin’s birthday is June 1st!  So many pawties!

Happy Caturday Hugs to Everybody……………..Sammy


Lucky Friday


That’s right – lucky Friday!!  Actually yesterday was my lucky day but this is the first time I’ve had a chance to TALK about it so it’s “Lucky Friday” !

Ahhh...this seems like a good spot to celebrate my good luck with a nap!

Ahhh…this seems like a good spot to celebrate my good luck with a nap!

Yesterday I received a pawsome award – THREE TIMES…….that’s right – THREE.  Here’s the award – I love it and I’ve never received it before either:


This award’s purpose is to celebrate other WordPress bloggers who inspire, help and encourage us….just like “family” does – isn’t that a nice thing?

I received this cool award from my friends Misaki, Dianna and Sundae, and Nylablue.

To properly receive the award I have to thank those who gave it to me (ALL OF THEM!!! – THANK YOU!!!!), and post the award (DONE) and then list ten other bloggers who have impacted my WordPress experience and WordPress “family”.   Well, due to the apparent popularity of this award, I think it really got passed around the last couple of days, and I’m not sure who received it and who hasn’t received it but let me just say this:   Without a doubt, I have found that everybody I have met through their blogs on WordPress – and really EVERYWHERE else not just WordPress – have been the most supportive, helpful, kind, generous, and talented bunch of people EVER.  If not for everyone’s encouragement and help while I was learning what to do and not do with blogging, I would not be just about to celebrate in a few days my TWO YEAR blogaversary.

So what I’d like to say is, if any WordPress peeps DON’T have this award yet – please feel free to take it with my absolute and total blessing and sincere thanks.   You all truly ARE my family.

Sam Loves His Friends!

What else is going on around here today?  Well, I can update you on the Slumber Pawty PAJAMA-RAMA (hahaha) and let you know I’ve received five entries already – that’s right – five of you sent me pix of yourselves in your PJs for the “BEST PJ CONTEST”.  YAY!  Keep ’em coming gang…..you’ve got until May 8th to send them in – the PAWTY is May 10th.  There will be a poll to choose the winner.

I also learned that Hutch A Good Life guinea pig boys are about to celebrate their FIRST blogaversary soon and they’re having a contest – you’d better go over and check everything out ASAP!

THEN, as if that wasn’t enough excitement – Austin from Catachresis has a birthday on May 1st.  So many PAWTIES and fun here in blogville huh?

I bet you’re wondering why I’m not complaining or talking about today being MONSTER DAY right?  That’s because my parents pulled a fast one on me and did the housecleaning yesterday – imagine that – a break in their routine – I think they’re just trying to keep me on my toes (paws??).

Happy Friday peeps………..see you Saturday!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀 😀 😀

Tuesday Teaser!


Hello Boys and Girls!  Time to exercise the eyeballs and put on your thinking caps because Tuesday Teaser is here…………

This was from a trip my parents took in 1994 so of course it’s entirely possible this view has changed since then but maybe – just MAYBE – some of you will STILL recognize the skyline enough to guess where this is!  (YOU MAY CLICK THE PHOTO TO ENLARGE IT)

Those of you who guess correctly will win:


So without further ado, here’s this week’s Teaser:

Now give it your best shot………and I’ll let you all know on Wednesday morning which of you lucky ducks (or cats or dogs, etc.) wins the hugs and which of you will have to try again the following Tuesday……..OK???  Deal???  Good!

Now, one more thing to tell you before I let you get to examining closely the photo………..yesterday my very good friends Archie, Oscar and Henry at My Three Moggies presented me with the Super Sweet Blogging Award which is one I already have but am always pleased as punch (or catnip maybe) to receive!  I’m also pretty sure this one has “made the rounds” but if there are any of you who would like to have a batch of REALLY YUMMY looking cupcakes on a badge for your site, please accept it with my love and appreciation……….

So I hope all of you have a stupendous day……..and remember we’re on a COUNTDOWN TO SANTA PAWS so please continue to behave yourselves in exemplary fashion so your Christmas stockings will “runneth over” !!!!  😀 😀 😀

Kitty Hugs, Sammy
