Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Shall We??  

YES let’s go for it and have some fun with this week’s Tuesday Teaser here in our Geography class!    Please remember the FIRST PERSON to comment on this post this morning will be our FIRST COMMENTER and will win a badge – this one in fact:

………..so hurry up and comment!!

Is everybody ready to begin class?   Sarge are all the students behaving to your satisfaction there in the back row where we usually have a little monkey business going on????

Well I did have a little problem with one student but I think he’s under control now Professor Sam!

Alright then we’ll move on.    This week’s Teaser is from a Guest.   It’s what I would call a FUN Teaser…………..I hope you agree.   Remember please that I need to know in what town/city/village and what state (if USA) or country (if not USA) you believe the photo was taken.    So be careful when you make a guess because I will need to know that information for your guess to be counted.

Let’s see if our SuzieQ can whip you all into a frenzy so you’ll be ready to guess………………….!

Here I be
Cute little me
Screaming myself silly
For every Frank and Billy!
Before you make a guess
I really must confess
I peeked at the Prof’s class notes
So let’s all take a vote –
Should I tell you all the scoop?
Make the Prof look like a poop?
No I’ll leave it up to YOU
And now my cheer is through
C’mon and be the FIRST
Or I’ll make you eat liverwurst!

Now that’s a threat that should put the entire class to work figuring this one out Suzie!   Good job…………………now Mr. Silver Briefcase could you please post the photo for us?

Yes sir….here’s today’s challenge!

Where was this photo taken?   Be the FIRST to guess correctly, and you will win this:

Be RIGHT but not FIRST with your guess and you still get this:

AND if you’re WRONG, you still get a little something for your trouble!

There you have it – now get to guessing everyone – the clock is ticking………and no it’s not a bomb – it’s a CLOCK and if you wanna win a badge (that isn’t green) you better figure this out ASAP!!!

NOW – I have a little announcement.   

Our Assistant Professor Teddy (who is my little brother) 

won some honors in the annual

Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby Car Race!

How cool is that???    You may remember what his vehicle looked like – the rules were that it HAD to have a cardboard box as PART of it and it needed to be a “creative” design.   In past years at Scouts there have been vehicles of all descriptions and this year there was a rocket ship, a jeep with horse cart, a rescue vehicle, a hooligan-wagon, and even a fire engine complete with a dalmation on board – AND many more.   So all kinds of vehicles were made and entered in the race.   Teddy drove a milk truck my Mom and Dad made for him – “Teddy’s Moo Juice Truck” !

He also looked pretty sharp in his racing gear!    AND we asked all of our blog buddies – THAT’S YOU – to vote for him because “popular vote” was a big part of who would win.   Also there was a GUEST CELEBRITY Judge who voted – the wonderful Jackson Galaxy of “The Cat From Hell”………….So the winners were announced yesterday AND Teddy won:

FIRST PLACE FOR MOST CREATIVE CAR

FIRST PLACE FOR MOST SKILLED DRIVER

SECOND PLACE FOR CROWD FAVORITE

and……

He tied with his good friends from The Cat On My Head for “RUNNERS UP” for the GRAND PRIZE!!!!!!

YAY FOR TEDDY!!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!

Thank you!    We TRULY want to thank each and every one of you who voted for Teddy in the contest………..it was sweet of you to do that and it made his little kitten heart FULL of love for all the wonderful followers we have with our blog.   We’ll let you know what the prizes are……….whenever we get them.    After all, YOU were a big part of why we won!

Sam Loves His Friends!

You are the BEST friends

Tune in tomorrow for TEASER TELL ALL!!!

Hugs, Angel Professor Sam and Race Car Driver Teddy

Bizeeee Boy

Standard

I am the ultimate busy boy…………….truly.   Seems like every time I turn around I’m having to remind Mom of this, that, or the other.  Her February calendar already has more writing on it than days of the month are available to write on!   There’s always SOMETHING going on in the blogosphere isn’t there………….

The next item on my calendar is the Super Bowl.  My Mom used to be INSANE about football – even though the Washington Redskins have only had some brief “time in the sun” with successes, including actually having a good year THIS year – for the most part, she became just a bit disenchanted and quit watching every single game.   There’s a whole new cast of characters now on the ‘Skins but she has ALWAYS watched at least SOME of the Super Bowl.   She’ll be there with 87 bazillion other people this Sunday – believe me.

Partly because the Cat Scouts are having a Super Bowl Party and it’s hosted by my Troop in our fabulously comfortable Wildcats Troop Lodge!   Wanna see how I decorated the place for our party?

And I also got prepared for the Super Bowl courtesy of Hallmark which had a fabulously fun online gadget so you could make your own Kitten Bowl card – just CLICK HERE!     Here’s how MY card turned out – what do you think?

SAMMYKITTENBOWL2016

So I guess you might say I’m ready…………….ready to keep Mom calm on Sunday AND ready to be at Cat Scouts hosting a Super Bowl party……………….Who knew being a sixteen year old cat could be so much fun?????

I’m cheering for the Panthers!  

After all, I am a cat ya know!

Hugs, Sammy

Pre-Tease Monday

TEASER-PRETEASEMONDAY

Are You Ready?

Oh I’m sure you’re ready…..you know you have a whole day to study your geography, your world globes, your atlases, your google maps – and THEN and only THEN will you be ready to tackle tomorrow’s Teaser.   I promised you an easier one and I will not let you down on that………..HOWEVER, I know you wouldn’t want it TOOOO easy – like for instance if I posted this:

PARISEIFFELTOWERBALLOONS

I think you ALL would guess correctly on this one!

So, it won’t be that easy…………….I think you like a challenge so I’ll give you one but not an impossible one Ok?   So, tomorrow at an UNKNOWN/SURPRISE time, the Teaser will pop into your inbox so be ready.

Now, I promised you a photo of my Cat Scouts Derby race car for this year’s competition.   For the FIRST Derby race at Scouts my Dad made this FANTABULOUS car for me – complete with windshield, dice on the rear view mirror and EVERYTHING…….but I would not get in the thing and THAT was required in order for me to actually “be” (virtually of course) in the race.   I got a consolation prize though – I think because the car was so cool:

Cool but I wouldn't get in it!

Cool but I wouldn’t get in it!

SO, this year Mom and Dad made me a simple little car – nothing fancy – no doodads or cute stuff all over it – just a box with wheels pretty much………….and I wouldn’t get in it until Mom tricked me by putting some treats in it and I got THIS far in………..I’m not sure if this qualifies as “IN” my car for this year’s race but it might be the best I can do.   Some of the cars that are entered are AMAZING………after the race I’ll try to post some photos for you.   They are impressive and creative – mine is BLAH……………. SAMRACECAR2016-3

This is a slightly better view of my Sam-mobile – see?  No frills!

SAMRACECAR2016-2

We had some snow yesterday – it covered everything but was very “light” AND an hour after it stopped snowing it was totally gone…….just like it never happened…….maybe it was a mirage?   Maybe it was a dream?   Who knows but I’m not complaining.  I kept going on the front porch and staring at it like “how dare you keep me from going out on my sidewalk!”……….seems that LOVE OF SNOW I seemed to have when I was a young lad has gone with the wind.

So I’ll see you in the morning right?   You DO want a new 2016 version of my Teaser Badges don’t you?   ALRIGHT!    Then it’s a DATE!

Your Teaser Tomcat, Sam

SAMBACONHAT

Achin’ for Bacon

Standard

No, I’m not achin’ – Not really – no aches here – I may have arthritis but bacon has HEALING power you know………so on Saturday especially I’m always FEELING FINE!    Mom didn’t let me down either – she made bacon and egg sammiches for her and Dad and for me?  I had bacon on bacon with a side order of bacon!

Mom and Dad had these

Mom and Dad had these

I had this.....tee hee

I had this…..tee hee

 

Seriously though, we did have a nice breakfast this morning which is preparing us for a great Caturday.    I have a busy day at Cat Scouts……..in fact the whole weekend is busy.   It’s always something there – if you have time on your hands, are a cat, and have a Mom who can help you have the time of your life (hahahaha), consider joining up.  If you DO join up, join my Troop – The Wildcats!   I’m the Troop Leader and I promise you we’ll keep you hopping!!!

Sunday at Scouts we’re celebrating the joys of S’mores.  If your Mom or Dad were ever Scouts, they know what a s’mores is………..two graham crackers with a marshmallow between them and a couple of squares of chocolate bar….then you hold it over the campfire and it gets all MELTY.   It’s like a little bit of heaven on a stick!  HAHAHA    Anyway, we’re having a “S’moresapalooza” and we’ll tell stories about s’mores, recite poems about s’mores, and EAT s’smores (virtually of course) so I thought I’d make an outfit to wear to the event.  What do you think???

OK.....I hear you giggling.....stop that!

OK…..I hear you giggling…..stop that!

Do I look good enough to eat?   HAR HAR – that’s what Mom thinks anyway.

Well if you’ll pardon me, I’m going to see if I might have left a few bacon crumbs around my breakfast dish.    You never know………..I don’t want Mom to have to clean up any messes so I’ll search for every last bit of bacon and be on my way!

See you tomorrow for Sunday Selfies!

HUGS, SAMMY THE S’MORE

Meeting Friends

Standard

**Pam here – Sam’s asleep and it’s MY turn to blog!**

One thing I read over and over on the blogs I follow is that without a doubt, meeting the people we “follow” in the blogosphere in person is almost always TONS of fun.  You know these people from their blogs so they’ve been friends for a long time but once in a while you get lucky and your paths cross!

On Monday my husband and I met the dynamic duo behind The Cat On My Head blog – the Mom and Dad of all those Kitties Blue we know and love.  They were not far away from our town on business and were coming BACK through this way so we decided to meet in Warrenton for lunch.    It was so much fun…….you see, not only are Janet and I friends from our blogs, we are friends through Cat Scouts as well.   Remember, Sammy is a Troop Leader and Janet’s cat Mauricio is the Assistant Troop Leader!

We decided when we discussed having lunch that it would be fun to have our cats with us (no – not our ACTUAL cats – the “Flat Cats” you’ve probably heard us talking about – a cardboard version of us that can be mailed/taken EVERYWHERE a bit more easily than a REAL cat).    SO Janet had Mauricio and I had Sam and we sat them on the table at the restaurant for a giggle – they had their official Cat Scouts neckerchiefs on too…….do I have to tell you that the entire restaurant thought we were nuts?   Do I have to tell you that we didn’t care one bit if they did?   HAHAHAHA

It was a lovely lunch and a fun time and even the FLAT CATS had a ball………we got to bring Mauricio home with us in fact.   The thing about “Flat Cat Scouts” is that our “Flat Cats” have been spending months traveling EVERYWHERE visiting each other through the mail.   We’re logging miles up as we visit and having photos taken of our cats enjoying themselves……….and whoever racks up the most miles is going to win a PRIZE.

Mauricio will be off in the mail today visiting another Cat Scout…………”Flat Sam” will be mailed out too on another visit.   I think the Cat Scouts are probably traveling more than most of my human friends have in YEARS!!!

Here are some photos from the past few days…………………I think you can tell it’s been FUN………………….

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Anyway, meeting someone in person that you’ve known only “at a distance” on the computer is always fun………………this was no exception.  David and I enjoyed visiting with Janet and Tom AND “Flat Cat” Mauricio!

Mauricio is celebrating today before he leaves us – it’s his BIRTHDAY today – so we hope he has a SUPER special birthday trip ahead to his next destination.   Farewell Mau – bon voyage and Happy Birthday!

Miss Alaineous

Standard

HAHA!  Get it?  Didja get it?  Miscellaneous?  Yeah I know……..I’m a laugh a minute aren’t I ?!

Well today I’m gonna talk about a couple of things so that’s why the miscellaneous subject………………first off is Bootsie’s auction and fund-raiser.   Just a reminder of that – his surgery for his ear is scheduled on August 15th and the money raised with the Auction AND the donation site hopefully will cover the cost.   It will be a great new start for the poor guy after all he’s been through.  Mom’s book has a bid on it (she donated a copy of one of her kids’ books to the auction) so that’s good!   Click the badge if you want to visit the Auction:

BOOTSIEAUCTIONBADGE

Brian Frum is handling the donations on the Funding Site and you can read about that part of things on Brian’s Home.

So what else is going on?  Well, I thought I’d share some of the photos from this past weekend’s “Sammy’s Travel Group” adventure in the Grand Canyon with Cat Scouts!   We had a blast…………it was a long weekend but we crammed a lot into it believe me.   Here’s a bit of a slideshow for your entertainment!   (may take a while to load – there are a lot of photos)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

So, you can tell we have a blast at Cat Scouts………………..consider joining – just go HERE……….register and join in the fun!

I’m off to see what Mom’s up to – there was mention made of possible bacon for breakfast………..you know when the “B” word is used I’m THERE!

Happy Thursday!

Scouts Stuff

Standard

Well, there’s ALWAYS something going on at Cat Scouts.   ALWAYS……….recently we started a “FLAT CATS” travel group – we all had pictures of ourselves enlarged and mounted on cardboard or poster board and we’re currently mailing ourselves all over the place to visit each other!   I know FLAT CATS have been around a while at a lot of the conferences but we thought we’d give it a whirl and it’s turning into a real TRAVEL FRENZY!

So far I’ve visited Spencerville and Indianapolis, Indiana, and I’m about to fly down to Florida then back up to North Carolina.  WOW.  Who knew a FLAT CAT could have so much fun???    Yesterday Mr. Mailman delivered TWO big envelopes here – one had my buddy from Scouts Sammy Pilch in it (or “SammyP” as he’s known at Scouts) and the other had my besties Raz, Allie, Anya and Gracie in it.  Today I showed them my red wagon and took them for a ride around my yard in it!    My other Scout buddy, Raz’s girlfriend Madi, is still here but she’d been outside before with me here and decided to stay inside and have a snack instead of another yard tour!

FLATGROUP1 FLATGROUP2

Here are some photos from my trip to Indiana!

And here’s Madi when she arrived – having a snooze her first night here in the guest room AND the next day when we had a picnic on my front porch!

If you’re a cat and want to have a TON of fun – consider Cat Scouts!!   If you join up, you might like to join MY Troop, the Worldwide Wildcats.  That’s right – I’m the TROOP LEADER!!!!

Know what tomorrow is?  HMMMMM???

That’s right – it’s MONSTER DAY!

EEEEEEEEK!

April In Paris….DONE!

Standard

We did it………….”Sammy’s Travel Group” at Cat Scouts just pulled off a two day trip to Paris and crammed a lot of stuff into that short period of time!   We well and truly “DID” Paris!

Oohhhhh la la!

Oohhhhh la la!

I prepared a little slideshow – just a fraction of the pawsome photos people shared on the Cat Scouts site through the event – most of these are mine because I was too pooped when it was over to go back and copy all the other photos people posted – but trust me – it was AMAZING!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Who knows where my Travel Group will go next…………..we’ve done the North Pole, the Philippines, Paris, maybe a Dude Ranch!   HAHAHA

Tomorrow is YOU KNOW WHAT day…………are you ready?   I’m toying with  a Guest Teaser   photo and one of my Mom’s so who knows what it will be.   But I can guarantee you’ll  be surprised because I’m posting the photo at a random time as usual so BE PREPARED!!!!!   OK?????????

TEASER TUESDAY!
