Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

50

Hello All!  It’s “combo day”!

We are joining Brian’s Blog Hop to talk about being very Thankful (which we are) and also having our Thoroughly Poetic Thursday feature as well……….busy busy right?

This week I’m thankful for several interesting things – one thing is the subject of my Poetic Thursday – I won a trophy at Cat Scouts for my Derby car this year…….I was just so excited – after all, I was just barely one when I got the trophy…..imagine that.    I’m also thankful for my Mom and Dad being so patient with me as I learn about harness/leash walking.   I am a slightly rambunctious kid and only when Mom got a “jacket/vest” type harness could she really control me – I was able to squirm out of the old harness Angel Sammy had.   Mom says I’m like a greased pig (no offense Bacon!).    If you want to join Brian’s blog hop, just click on the badge below……..I know he’d love for you to share what you are thankful for – we all would!!

Now let’s talk POETRY!     This week our letter is “W” and as always, my big brother Angel Sammy “transmitted” his poem to me via – BRIDGE-O-GRAM yesterday morning so I’d be able to put it on today’s blog.   Angel Sammy is super busy at the Bridge but has time to continue with the poetry – it was his idea for the blog and we’re on our SECOND go-round through the alphabet.   If you’d like to join in, just post your poem in our comments here OR post your blog link so we can follow it and read your POEM at your blog!!!

“W”

“Win”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 5/18/17

My little brother Teddy

Proved amply that he was ready

For Scouts Cardwood Derby racing

A fast field of Scouts he’d be facing.

His “Teddy’s Moo Juice Truck”

Was fast and had good luck!

With help from friends like you

His votes were WAY MORE than “few” !

He placed in more than one category

With a big boy smile he basked in winners’ glory!

Dad put the trophy on the mantel over the fireplace…..

Waiting for another one to join it at the next Cat Scouts Derby race!!!!!

Thank you big brother Sammy for writing a poem about ME…………you make me feel like a BIG BOY !!!!!

The best part is that my big brother, Angel Sammy told me in a dream last night that he was EVER so proud of me – I already knew Mom and Dad were proud of me – after all, they helped me build the car I drove in the Derby – but hearing Angel Sammy tell me HE was proud – well – that’s the BEST!

I can’t wait for next year!   The only requirement for the Derby entry is that it be made out of cardboard – and we kitties love boxes – it’s a good combination!

See you tomorrow my friends!

Interested in joining Cat Scouts?   It’s tons of fun!   CLICK HERE    Tell them Teddy and Angel Sammy sent you!!!

Tuesday Teaser

113

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
