On another and totally hilarious note, we had a big Oktoberfest “do” at Cat Scouts this weekend and one of my besties put together this wonderful JibJab video for the occasion.  It was just too funny NOT to share it…………….thank you to Raz at FriendsFureverCatBlog for doing this because it was truly the HIGHLIGHT of the day!   YES I’m in it…….Tee Hee

AND………before I forget to say it – THANK YOU to everyone who wished my Dad a Happy Birthday yesterday.  He didn’t have such a swell one…..he was two miles from our house on his way to a scheduled doctor’s visit (physical) when the car died.  Totally.   He got it off the road, tow truck took him to the dealer, now waiting to hear the BAD NEWS……some way to spend a birthday huh?   But thanks for the nice wishes ANYWAY!

Fozziemum sent this one - isn't it beautiful????

And Mom thanks you Miss Laura for sending a special ecard FROM ME to my Dad….you’re the BESTEST!

Watch out  Easy and Leo……there’s a new Teaser Expert in town (or should I say across the pond) and he’s now been FIRST RIGHT GUESSER for two weeks in a row!   Who is it?   Stay tuned to find out!

This was the photo from yesterday:

Where is this?  Oh a whole lot of you knew where it was………it’s the beautiful Mount Vernon Plantation, former summer home of Martha and George Washington and it’s located in Mt. Vernon, Virginia!!    Here’s the link to this beautiful home……my Mom and Dad have been there many times.   It’s beautiful in Spring and Summer.   CLICK HERE

Who was the lucky guy who guessed right first?   If you remember who won last week then you know it was my friend Flynn from Two Devon Cats!    Let’s hear it for Flynn……You may already know that Flynn and I are making the “hyperthyroidism” journey together and I’m also happy to say that we have both had recent checkups and BOTH of us are responding to our medication just fine.

Here’s your badge buddy:

 

For the FIRST to guess right!

For the FIRST to guess right!

Lots more of you guessed correctly too – so of course all of you who did guess right get this!

 

Right but not FIRST!

Were you one of the ones who guessed some other planet or place?  Or had no idea at all?   You STILL win something – THE BIG GREENIE!

 TEASERNEWWRONG

Tune in next week because I will be having a Guest Teaser for you then…………..that’s right………..and it’s a toughie too!

Remember that my Mom’s mystery is on sale in Kindle format until the 25th so use the link on the right sidebar and get your HOT COPY soon……………it’s only ninety-nine cents right now on sale – now tell me what else in the world you can buy for that low price these days?   Not much!!!!

In other exciting news I must say that I was SUPER EXCITED to receive a package the other day from out of the blue – not expected but WOW when I opened it – I saw it was from my buddy Bacon so I knew it just HAD to be good.  It was.   MY VERY OWN PURRRRSONAL ELF ON THE SHELF!!!!   That’s right – you know how every year Bacon and his family are plagued by the antics and troublemaking of his Elf……well now I’m gonna have to keep an eye on MY elf and you’ll be seeing him on my blog from time to time until Christmas.    Bacon – I told you what I’d named him but guess what – I changed my mind – his name is now gonna be ELFVIS…..that’s right – as in “ELFVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING”…..HAHAHAHAHAHAHA    There are always ELFVIS sightings and not all of them are at Graceland.  Now there will be sightings right here in Warrenton, Virginia!

Here are the first two photos I got of him exploring my house……….I can see there’s going to be trouble ahead…………….this guy is lookin’ for trouble with a Capital “T” !!!

Uhoh....My Dad better keep an eye on his beer stash with this guy around!

Uhoh….My Dad better keep an eye on his beer stash with this guy around!

ELFVIS2

Mom snapped this blurry shot of Elfvis on the bathroom sink – we’re not sure if he was about to toss this kitty sculpture down the sink or toilet….but Mom has moved it out of reach!

Thanks again Bacon…..between you and me I’m sure we’ll have our hands/hooves/and paws full of keeping these guys out of trouble around our homes for the holidays.

HAPPY WEDNESDAY PEEPS!

TEASERSAMMY

We Love Surprises!

Standard

Apparently LOTS of you do because my “surprise or no surprise” poll results yesterday about the Teaser tell it like it is……………..you like to be surprised!  So for now, I’ll continue with random times for my Teaser posting until you scream NO MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORE PULEEEEEEEEEEZE (or something similar)!

TEASERGLOBE

Well tomorrow my Troop on Cat Scouts is hosting a Sock Hop.  No it’s not where you hop around with socks on – it’s a “thing of the fifties” when girls in poodle skirts and bobby socks would dance with guys in jeans and leather jackets in a high school gymnasium and do the Twist, Swing, Jitterbug, Stroll and a number of other chiropractic nightmare moves that should have landed some of them in a hospital.  Only instead of HUMANS doing this craziness, it’s CATS.  That’s right.  Should be a hoot right?  Here’s a little preview of what we’ll be seeing on Cat Scouts at the Hop:   (click to bigify)

 

I may share some of the “after” photos with you on Saturday (after I wake up from sleeping in of course).   Mom won’t let me stay out too late – yes I’m 14 years old which is a Senior Citizen in cat years but I’m still living under her roof and while I do – her rules RULE!

Yesterday was my buddy Bailey’s  of Bailey Boat Cat birthday.  Imagine living the life aboard a beautiful sailboat?  Well that’s my friend Bailey for you.  AND on top of that he’s written a book all about being a boat cat and life at sea……my Mom is going to do a book review tomorrow of his book – but I can tell you right now – it’s CATABULOUS!!!!!

BAILEYBIRTHDAY BAILEYCOVER

That’s about it for news from my world…………..although I’m sure before the day is over many exciting things will happen to me and cause me to have to share them with you tomorrow.   That’s what a blog is all about right?  “STUFF HAPPENS”?????   Well heaven knows it happens in my life…….that’s for sure!

Happy Thursday Peeps and Peepers!

Hugs, Sammy

 

 

Drive-In Movie Nite!

Standard

Happy Monday!   I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day?  We did at my house………..I got my Dad a book by one of his favorite authors and a card from ME ME ME that he kept by his chair all day so he could look at it often.  He’s saved every card I’ve given him for the last 14 years……What a Dad he is!

So I wanted to share some fun photos from an event we had at Cat Scouts that was just SO MUCH FUN……………I suggested that we have a “Drive-In Movie Nite” and everybody hopped on board with the idea – it turned into quite a fun time but we also wound up turning it into a “Retro Fifties Drive-In Movie Nite” with some great old cars that we all drove, some super fifties outfits and tons of fun through the evening – even during intermission where some of us Cat Scouts worked in the concession stand at the drive-in!    Here are a FEW of the tons of photos posted during the evening……….like I said, everyone hopped on board the “retro ride” and it made it a SWEEEEEET evening of fun!

Cat Scouts is tons of fun – if any of you decide you’d like to join up – head over to http://catscouts.com and register………..then make sure you join MY Troop – The Wildcats!!!   If you have any questions about Scouts let me know……

Tomorrow is Tuesday Teaser as you know……………..I have been toying with the idea of having a SURPRISE time for the post to appear in your mailbox………you’re all used to it popping up at 6AM Eastern Standard Time – what if you had NO IDEA when I let it go “live”??   Would that make it more fun????  What do you think?  Let me know!!   For now though, just know that we have a GUEST TEASER tomorrow and it will be “live” at the usual time……..

Happy Monday!   See you for the agonizing Tuesday Teaser tomorrow………………

Hugs, Sammy

 

More Bacon Please!

Standard

Can a guy have too much bacon?  Well pawsibly but THIS GUY votes NO……………Saturday and Sunday are for bacon regardless and my parents started this morning off with bacon AND pancakes…..I said “hold the pancakes Mom” when it came to fixing my plate!   Thanks Mom – that should be enough for me…….HAHAHA

Yesterday I got a lot of you all stirred up by the first of my “Moon Teasers” !!   AND I showed you the spacesuit that you all can use to decorate/personalize for your very own – in fact, I am going to show you MY spacesuit all decked out.  BUT before I do, I want to say that you do NOT have to use that spacesuit – if you have one already (hahaha) or if you want to find one of your own online somewhere (or in your neighborhood spacesuit store), you CAN do that.   When the time comes to submit your photos with your personalized spacesuits – it can be this one – or one of your own!!   I’m posting both the “blank” spacesuit which you can “take” and begin working on for the competition AND me in my suit!

MOON-Spacesuit

MOON-Sammy

I was also asked if our spaceship has a name………..the answer is “YES IT DOES” !!!   I named it “Ralph”…..why Ralph?  Well some of you may remember the amazing Jackie Gleason as Ralph Kramden in the Honeymooners TV series who would frequently tell his wife Alice, “Bang, Boom, To The Moon!!”…….so I thought “Ralph” was a GOOD name for our spaceship!

Next week I will post some more about our trip……….and probably announce another of the competitions we’ll be having……….until then, you can at least have a start on figuring out how you want to personalize your spacesuit!!

Tomorrow is Super Bowl Sunday – WOO WOO…….and there are TWO par-tays I need to tell you about………..one is at the Tabby Cat Club – here’s the poster  for the BIG EVENT – everyone is invited and it lasts ALL DAY LONG!

TCCSuperBowl

Then the other par-tay is at Cat Scouts – WHAT??   You’re a cat and you’re not a Cat Scout yet?  Well, all is forgiven….but if you want to know about it, you can visit HERE.    This is the poster we put up for the Cat Scouts Super Bowl Party which we’ll be having at the official Cat Scouts Campfire with a pot luck dinner………….If you’re a Scout – “be there or be square” !!

SuperBowlParty

See how busy I am lately?  Whew!   Pretty good for an older gentleman cat huh?   Mom’s having a tough time keeping up with me………!!

Sam Sleeping on Mom's Lap

oops….guess this isn’t a good example of Mom not keeping up is it?!

Have a super Saturday and I’ll see you for Silent Sunday tomorrow……………….I promise……………………

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Hello Everybody!

Did everyone (well not QUITE everyone but LOTS anyway) have a nice 3-day weekend?   We did…….we got in lots of R&R (that’s Rest and Relaxation for those of you who never heard of that term before) and food (we all have heard THAT word before!), and some fun thrown in (who doesn’t like that?!?!).

Yesterday was a day of remembering – which is what Memorial Day here is all about.  I did that post on my Granddad but also went around to all my friends and read their blogs with their own remembrances and it was one of those “bittersweet” kind of days I suppose.

But today – TODAY is another matter!  It’s that time again……..yep – you guys are getting awfully good at these Tuesday Teasers of mine and this one today might not fool you either but one thing I can promise you is that you’ll wonder who on earth took such horrible pictures?  Well, it was my Grandmom who took them – my Mom’s Mom – She took them on a trip back in the early 80s with an “Instamatic” camera.   She was traveling with a friend and they visited this ONE place although stopped at several cities.   My Mom has all my Grandmom’s old photo albums and sadly she didn’t take very good care of all her photos because the albums are a mess.  One of these days my Mom says she might get around to taking all of them out and putting them into decent photo albums.  In the meantime, see if you can see enough detail in these TWO photos to tell what country she was visiting?????

MysteryPhotosMay27Sorry about the horrible color – but what can I say?  Mom tried to adjust the colors a bit (obiously!!) because the photos were so faded.  I wanted to use these because they were INTERESTING!   I’m not sure, Easy, but I don’t believe you’ll find a garbage can in sight!!!  HAHAHAHAHA

I’ll be anxious to see how many of you guess this one………..I do believe there WILL be some correct guesses though because I have a feeling if you’ve been here (even though these are old photos) this place probably hasn’t change a WHOLE lot from about 35 years ago!  Some places are just like that……..stuck in time.

You know what you win right?  Those of you who guess correctly will get:

HAVE A FANTASMIC TUESDAY………….Love, Sammy

So have a super duper day…………and I’ll be handing out hugs tomorrow – will YOU be one of those who gets one???????????   Hmmmmm?????????????????

Woo Hoo Thursday

Standard

Well, I guess you wanna know why “WOO HOO” huh?  No particular reason – I’m just feeling extra perky this morning.

First order of business is to give a special hug to someone who I FORGOT to list as a “right guesser” on the Tuesday Teaser….shame on me….. 😦   Who did I leave out?  My good friend Isobel, caretaker of the pawsome MasterB.

Special Hug for Isobel!

Also, I have to apologize for the fact that one of the photos I used for the Teaser this week was one I’d used once before on the Teaser – long enough ago that maybe you didn’t notice???  Still, I had used it……maybe you could say I “recycled” it……that sounds nicer.  Anyway, I’ll try NOT to do that again…..maybe.   No promises though.

Today is change the sheets day and you kitties all know (and maybe some of you pups too?) how much fun it is to interfere with help Mom when she’s changing the bedding.  What WOULD they do without us hopping around on the bed or being a lump under the sheet or blanket????

Sam Preventing Mom From Making The Bed

 

Just adding a few hairs to the fresh top sheet Mom!

 

HELPING every single step of the way!   Uh huh!

Sam making himself comfy while I'm TRYING to put fresh sheets on the bed!

A few more hairs to the fleece blanket on TOP of the sheet Mom!

AND……….last but not least……….moving in for an uninterrupted nap on top of the bedspread quilt !

Sam snoozing in Mom and Dad's bed

Just guarding the nice fresh bed Mom!

After thirteen years of practicing this technique I find it VERY effective………………just ask my Mom…………….she’ll agree I’m SURE!

While I surfed around and visited your blogs today I was happy to see that I’m not the only one who has lots of GREAT goodies from Mollie’s store…….and she’s adding new stuff all the time – GREAT stuff too.  I’ve seen some pawsome coasters, keychains, nip mats, mousemats – now she’s got doggy collars and leads and all KINDS of things – hand made too.  If you haven’t gotten in on the fun with some personalized stuff you’ve GOTTA visit!   One of my most favorite things to snuggle with is this which I got from Mollie’s store!

The little guy with the blue ribbon is from Mollie and it "lives" on my Mom's bed next to the ginger cat pillow!!

Not sure why it looks like it has a blue tummy but it’s WHITE…….”Say Mom – your camera needs a tune-up!!”………..   😀 😀 😀

Well, I hope you’ll excuse me but I hear pots and pans rattling in the kitchen…….that means Mom and Dad are cookin’ something up for breakfast.  Even though it’s NOT a weekend, there’s always an outside chance bacon might be on the menu.  I’m going to go down and look CUTE while I stare at them.  They can’t resist that.

Happy Thursday!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy  😀 😀 😀
