Teaser Tell All Time!!


Tell It Like It Is…..


Hello students of geography – and welcome to another Wednesday when we learn who has been studying like a good student and who needs to hit the books before NEXT Tuesday!

First, let me thank our pawsome GUEST TEASER for yesterday’s photo………….THANK YOU to Miss Layla of Cat Wisdom 101 for sending in that great photo of a “lobster in space” flying above some city getting fresh air and pointing direction for anyone caring to know where the wind is coming from!

Thank you Miss Layla for the fabulous TEASER photo of 9/20/16!!

Thank you Miss Layla for the fabulous TEASER photo of 9/20/16!!

And WHERE did Miss Layla take the photo?   Well, she snapped it down on the Boston Wharf in Boston, Massachusetts!    A couple of you even guessed the actual building the weathervane is on!  BRAVO…………………but who gets what today……….I know you’re just dying to know!

First off, we had a TIE for First Commenter – and it was a “Tie Made In Heaven” because it was Raz of Friends Furever AND Madi of Down Home in NC and as we all know (unless you’ve been hiding under a rock) Raz and Madi are an ITEM and these two commented during the first minute the Teaser went live.    Concatulations to both of you and EACH of you get this:


And who was the lucky receiver of the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER badge this week?    It was our friends the Kitties Blue from The Cat On My Head – that’s who!   Concatulations to you all and this little beauty is YOURS:


Several other smarties were out there yesterday though and we had several other “Boston, Mass” answers so if you were one of them, this is yours!


Have no fear if you were wrong when you guessed…….maybe next week you’ll be lucky!  In the meantime, you can console yourself with one of these:


Who knows what our photo will be next week……………could be anywhere!   So you’d better be on your toesies by then so you can take a whack at the piñata of Teaser (hahaha).   Thanks for playing along and should you have a photo that you think would work for me to use, send it to me at junekimm(at)aol(dot)com !

I also thought I’d share some coolio photos with you……………you may recall that I told you the ever-fabulous and talented Miss Sharon of GENTLE STITCHES had designed and was making a couple of prototypes of a new tote she called the “Sammy Tote” – because she said she took the inspiration for it from ME ME ME!    That alone made my heart beat faster because I’ve never to my knowledge inspired anyone before BUT, guess what came in the mail from Australia yesterday??!!   That’s right – the world’s first Sammy Tote!    Mom tried to take a photo of me and her with the bag but I was squirmier than a greased pig (no offense Bacon) but Dad did squeeze this one out which is as close as it’s gonna get:

sammytote2Yep – I was less than cooperative for this photo shoot…………….Mom had Dad take a couple of others – one of her holding the tote and another of me giving the tote the SNIFF INSPECTION:

Hey - this smells like Australia!

Hey – this smells like Australia!

So darn cute - note the TAIL!

So darn cute – note the TAIL! The tote is nice and roomy too!

Miss Sharon tells us that the pattern for this cute tote will be available in December from RAVELRY.com and I am sure lots of people will want it – I’ve already seen on her blog at Gentle Stitches some other people are suggesting other anipals as “stars” of the tote but no matter what the future holes for the tote, I was FIRST and I was so surprised when I found out, and I will never forget Miss Sharon’s kindness.

AND – last but not least, I just thought I’d share that yours truly FORGOT that I was getting close to my 2,000 post………well, it came and went and I didn’t even notice it but still, I think it’s pretty cool that I’ve managed to squeeze out over 2,000 blogs since I started blogging in 2011.   Other interesting figures Mom saw on my stats page are:

228,500 views of my blog

28,810 Visitors so far

My BEST DAY ever was Oct. 30, 2013 when I had 708 views (it was my Halloween costume contest!)

AND……I have 636 WordPress followers and 195 Facebook followers

Thank you friends for having fun with me!

Tomorrow is Thoroughly Poetic Thursday and it will be the letter “O” that we’ll do poems for – put your thinking caps on and share your poem about “O” here on my blog by putting the poem in comments OR leave your blog link here to your post so we can read your “O” poem……..I’m thinking WHAT to write about that starts with the letter “O”……..Ovaltine?  Ocean?  Olive Oil? 

See you tomorrow !!

Hugs, Sammy

Stars wear sunglasses, right?

One final note……..like many of you have reported on YOUR blogs, we are now having problems with our comments on some of your blogs – particularly other WordPress blogs – showing up on your sites……..we have tried to send notes to most of you to please check your spam and “unspam” us so we don’t go to “neverland” in SPAMVILLE, but if you haven’t heard from me lately, check that spam…..chances are we’re there!  

Ooops….Didn’t Notice!


Hi All…..Happy Friday!

So what didn’t I notice?  Well apparently we went over 1,000 posts five days ago………DUH………..well, I think I’ve said before that Mom and I don’t really read our stats regularly but just now when I came here to do my blog for today I happened to see the number 1,005 there.  Wow.  That’s a lot of writing.  That’s a lot of naps, weather complaining, bacon, gardens, snowy landscapes, birthdays (mine and everyone else’s), parties, giveaways, special events, plugging my Mom’s books (tee hee), and all kinds of things that escape me at the moment.

Just in case you haven’t been with me since I started blogging back in 2011, this was my FIRST ever blog post RIGHT HERE.

AND – this was a photo I put in my very first “Blogagersary” celebration after one year of blogging:

I published this on the ONE YEAR anniversary of my blog !

But what I SHOULD say is that I SOOO appreciate all of you following me.  Like most of us I started out with ZIP followers and now I have 437 followers.   I really am excited about that and I always HAVE been excited to have anyone follow me.  After all – my blog is about me – a cat who lives in a household with no other cats (other than Stevie the neighborhood mooch) and two retired parents and I pretty much just talk about my daily life……PERIOD.  Still, you stick with me and seem to enjoy visiting me like I enjoy visiting a WHOLE LOT of you!!!!   Blogging is great isn’t it?   Making NEW friends, keeping in touch with OLD friends, and having fun – keeping track of each other in this big world of ours.

Sam Enjoying Being Brushed

I love all of you as much as I love being brushed – and that’s a LOT!

Where would I be without you?  Well, for one thing I’d have to change my blog name to:


Happily that’s not the case…..between my blog and my membership in Cat Scouts, I am FAR from lonely!   What time I don’t spend here with you, I’m napping on Mom’s lap or taking little walks outside, and loving my life.   No reason to think I won’t be doing this for a long time to come either.  So far (KNOCK ON WOOD) I’m hanging in their health-wise and Mom keeps an eye on me like a hawk (like all Moms do!) and outside of some usual older cat stuff like arthritis and upset tummy from time to time, I’m GOOD TO GO!

Anyway, this isn’t the most exciting blog post I’ve ever written but when I noticed I’d gone over 1,000 posts I just had to say THANKS TO YOU, I did – because I never would have kept going if YOU weren’t here…….really!

Sam Loves His Friends!

Thanks to all of you!

Thanks for allow me to be:

ONE SPOILED CAT (with friends!)

Hugs, Sammy
