Tuesday Teaser Time!

Standard

“Perimeter check completed by my Team – Professors – please go ahead and start class!!”

 

Tuesday is here!   Time to Tease – also time for you to COMMENT now!

“Larry put that cigaratte out – the Professors just started class!!!!! – we’d better go!!!!”

Today we have a Graphics Department “special” for you.    That’s right – our PERSON who works that Department found a swell photo and that’s what we’re using for our mystery location photo today.    Bet you just can’t WAIT to see it!

First though we need to share the RULES as well as the prizes available for guessing today………………

Now you know you want to win a badge right?   And you know how to do that – so everybody has an equal chance and we hope that if you win you’ll share your winning badge on your blog or social media page if you have one……..I mean why not BRAG THAT YOU’RE A SMARTY PANTS?????

“Yep – we ALL want to brag and add to our collections (or start one as the case may be!)”

Then let’s get started shall we?    Photo Guard – would you PULEEEEEZE bring in the Teaser photo for today????

Here’s today’s photo Professors!

Oh boy!   This is a doozy…………………………good luck students………………..looks like an interesting place to hike that’s for sure!

“Spose there’s any fish in there???????”

Now the Cheer Team will add their two cents and give everyone a BRAIN BOOST with their cheer………………………..ladies?  It’s all yours!

It’s Teaser Tuesday and here we are
With our motorcycles and not in a car!
The weather is perfect for a ride
We cruise our Harleys with pride!
The Teaser looks like a winner
Whether seasoned student or beginner
We’ll put your name in our cheer if you win!
So THINK hard and take your brain for a spin!!!

 

Thanks girls – I assume you’re heading to the pub on your cruise?    Which one this time?

Should we call and warn tell them you’re on your way??

OK students – what say we head to the cafeteria for a bite of lunch??     Follow us in orderly fashion – you don’t want Miss D to get upset if we go willy-nilly into the cafeteria!

Off we march to the cafeteria!

Hello Students and Teachers……….time for a refreshing and delicious lunch!   We have your favorites today!

Teaser Tuesday Begins!

Standard

“Well Troops – we’ve done a circuit around the school and down the halls and it seems all is in order!   Let’s tell the Profs”

TIME TO COMMENT NOW BEFORE YOU SIT AT YOUR DESK!

Greetings students……happy Tuesday……let’s get to it shall we?

We trust all of you made sure your Moms (or Dads or other caregivers) had a SPECIAL DAY on Sunday right?    We must always show our appreciation when someone in our lives makes sure we are OK – feeds us, makes sure we are healthy, gives us love (and treats and toys of course).

You forgot to say “changes your diaper once in a while” !

Well there are lots of things our Moms do for us………too many to name in fact.    They also make sure all of you students are at class on time on Tuesdays!  YAY!   Now let’s get started – first with the rules and badges then with the PHOTO of the DAY!

Hopefully you will be lucky enough to get one of these badges to add to your collection!   You know you want one (or more) – right?

I want to win a badge but I need to be able to SEE the Teaser photo – someone pulled the wool over my eyes!

Yes that could be a problem!    Just a minute – I’ll give you a quick trim…………………………..

“Snip…..snip….snip…..there you are!”

Now let’s get on with class shall we?    This week’s photo for Teaser is from our Graphics Department (who just celebrated Mother’s Day) so let’s see what they came up with shall we???????

OHHH!  Pretty village or town but WHERE IS IT??????   Your guess is what we need so start studying class!    Our Cheer Team will give you a push:

Man oh man that photo is rough!
And we thought last week’s was kind of tough!
You find some winners that’s for real
Now students it’s up to you – that’s the deal
Study and decide what town this is
You have to guess RIGHT and we mean “biz” !
You might win a badge and get a cheer from us
Otherwise you might ride in the back of the bus!
We know you can do it – you’ve done it before
Come back EVERY Tuesday for more, more, more!!

Thanks girls……………….you can go hit the hot tub in your locker room or pop on your Harleys for a cruise…………..we’ll see you tomorrow for the TELL ALL!

Groovy……

Professors – I know you don’t like mischief in the back of the classroom but that new student Gary is being VERY NAUGHTY!

Now Gary you know that stuff is in short supply these days so you really shouldn’t do that!    This is your only and last warning!

There’s always some kid in the back of class causing trouble!   CAN WE EAT NOW???????????  I’m not the only one either!

Alright everyone – to the cafeteria!   We’ll see you in class tomorrow for TELL ALL !

Hello Students!   We have a wonderful lineup of goodies in the cafeteria today – enjoy!

See you tomorrow Students!   GOOD LUCK!!   Your Professors

 

Teaser Tell All

Standard

TIME TO TELL ALL!!!!    How’s everything outside and inside Clowie and Team???

All is well Professors – LET THE FUN BEGIN!

Welcome back to class students………….so it seems that our Graphics Department scored this week with a rather tough-ish photo.    It’s about time.   We try to keep you all on your toes (or paws or claws as the case may be) but sometimes you guess the ones we thought would be tough RIGHT AWAY.

At any rate, I suppose you would all like to know who the FIRST COMMENTER was?    Guess what – there were (again) FOUR OF THEM.    Our Cheer Team had a miniature fit when I told them but as always, they came through for us with an appropriate CHEER honoring those four and will share that with you later.   In the meantime, let’s celebrate our FIRSTIES!

I was here early and I commented – was I one of the four?  Was I?  Huh?  Was I?

OUR FIRST COMMENTERS WERE:

Drumroll Please!

Sharon (Friends Furever), Csilla (Kolytyi), Timmy (Timmy Tomcat) and Janet (The Cat On My Head) 

YAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!

WOO HOO FOR YOU HOO !   Each of you gets one of these to take home:

I was one of FOUR First Commenters on the Teaser of April 7, 2020! WOW!

THEN of course what we had to do was WAIT WAIT WAIT to see who would be our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER………………………….well……………………….we waited and waited some more…………………..and when we were finished we had dinner then waited a bit more………………then went to bed!     That’s right – NOBODY GOT THE TEASER this week!

WHAT?   WHAT?   You mean nobody got the Teaser this week?   WHY NOT!!!!

Well because nobody had a clue that’s why.    Here’s the photo:

It’s really a beautiful photo and an interesting landscape isn’t it?    This photo is of a rather incredible shoreline in a place called BARRED CREEK CLIFFS in Broome, Western Australia.    You can see for miles and miles can’t you.   Couldn’t walk the entire beach without either swimming around the area where the rocks are in the water and there’s no beach but it might be a nice refreshing dip after walking in the sand.    Anyway, we did have some good guesses – just none that figured this spot out.

POOOOOEY!    FOOOOOEY! 

Yes you’ve got that right!     However the upside is we’re handing out a boat load of “GREENIES” today – so if you guessed but were wrong you’re entitled to one – please copy it for your collection if you collect them!!

I guessed WRONG on the Teaser photo of April 7-2020 but at least I TRIED! I got this cool badge anyway….lucky me!

Cheer Team – you may have FOUR First Commenters but you have NO First Right Guesser so maybe they balance each other out?     Let’s see what kind of cheer you worked up for the crowd today…………..

We sure had a bumper crop of FIRSTIES
We think today’s cheer will make us thirsty!
So many names to work into the cheer
Our pub better have some nice cold beer!
We had FOUR early birds at the door
Good thing there weren’t any more!
Kudos to Sharon, Csilla, Janet and Timmy
What a crowd – Jumpin’ Jiminy!!
Don’t forget to take your badge
Or they’ll get tossed in the lost and found by Miss Madge!!

YAY FOR OUR TALENTED CHEER TEAM!!!

We admit it was a tough Teaser but they all can’t be easy peasy right?   A challenge is a good thing once in a while.   So take your GREENIE (or your badge if you were a FIRSTIE) and let’s go to the cafeteria to see what delightful things Miss Dingleberry has for lunch today.     Then you’re free to head home on your bus and we’ll see you NEXT Tuesday for more GEOGRAPHY FUN!!!!

Oh yes – before we forget – we have an EASTER PUZZLE for you if you’re into doing puzzles.    It’s at the end of today’s class post…………….our way of saying HAPPY EASTER STUDENTS!

Alright all you little Easter Buns – time to choose your lunch and enjoy!

Teaser Tell All Time

Standard

“All’s well on campus Professors!”

Isn’t it great we have a security patrol keeping an eye out for us!   

Now we need to divulge the details on how yesterday’s Teaser Tuesday turned out.    We were totally surprised that someone guessed the photo SHORTLY after we went live yesterday.  So much for trying to fool you all.    It just doesn’t happen often – someone is on the ball and knows just how to google photo details – things they see that stand out in our photos – and get the resolution to “WHERE WAS THIS PHOTO TAKEN??”………………..relatively quickly!

Well it sure as heck wasn’t me…..I was clueless as usual!

We’ begin today by letting you know who our FIRST COMMENTER was yesterday morning at 8:04AM when we went LIVE………………………..

Drumroll Please!

FIRST COMMENTER WAS:   Miss Sharon of FRIENDS FUREVER!!!

What?  Again?  Miss Sharon is always up super duper early isn’t she!   

Here’s your badge – concatulations!

I was the ONE AND ONLY First Commenter on the Teaser of March 10, 2020! YAY FOR ME!

WOOO HOOOO MISS SHARON!!!!

It pays to be an early  bird on Tuesdays doesn’t it!     So here’s the photo we had yesterday for Teaser……………………we thought it was a goodie – turns out it was an EASY!

A rather cool downtown area isn’t it…………….this is Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.    What gave it away apparently were the twin towers………….I guess it was quite an engineering feat to build them so tall and that’s what people keyed on when they were doing searches yesterday.   BUT one person figured it out FIRST………..wanna know who??????

Drumroll Please!

Charles (Chuck) Huss at BADCATCHRIS  !! 

YAY FOR Chuck! He’s definitely NOT a FREQUENT FLYER so nice to see a NEW face!

And here’s your winner’s badge!

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of March 10, 2020 – thanks to my cats who demanded I feed them this morning I was AWAKE when Teaser went LIVE! WOO HOO!

Concatulations!

There were other right guessers – MANY of them in fact – and each of you who were right but not FIRST get one of these to copy and show off on your blogs!

I guessed RIGHT on the Teaser of March 10, 2020 but I wasn’t FIRST…..I’ll keep trying though!

And if you guessed but were wrong – this is for you!

I tried to guess the Teaser on March 10, 2020 but I was WRONG…..next week might be my week to be right?!?!?!

ANOTHER EPIC FAILURE FOR ME….how many failures can a little baby handle anyway?? HUH??

Let’s see what the Cheer Team has to say about this week’s Teaser results shall we?

Kuala Lumpur is a place we don’t know
We wouldn’t have a chance for win, place OR show!
Our FIRST COMMENTER got here the SECOND we went live
She’s often very early and that’s no jive
When the bell rings at school she’s FAST on the draw….
Sharon from Friends Furever is as fast as we ever saw!
She’s First Commenter again and again
I can just see her at the computer with a great big grin!
Who was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER with all the luck?
Today’s FIRST RIGHT was our friend from BadCatChris, Chuck!
I think he was happy as he’s not a frequent firstie
Now this long cheer has made all of us quite thirsty!

Groovy…….

ATTENTION!   The Cafeteria is NOW open!

LET’S EAT!!!!!!

OK class – neat line forms here and we’ll head off to the cafeteria…..well done in class today and we’ll see you next week for another Teaser – hopefully a TOUGH ONE…………we’re overdue for one of those.   

Off we march to the cafeteria!

Hello Students!  Time to stuff your face with food for lunch.   Your bus will be waiting to take you home after lunch and we’ll see you NEXT week as usual !

Teaser Tell All Time

Standard

Students!   You remembered where to come for class today!  BRAVO……..Clowie says we’re good to go so let’s start telling all.

I’m trying to control my excitement….but it’s not easy sometimes!

We are glad that you’re excited – we are too.    We love our new classroom and we are glad you all do too.

I need a booster seat for my desk chair – I’m a little SHORT!

We’ll make sure you have a high stool next week Edgar!

We’re glad all of you found the new classroom with out a lot of problems yesterday and that you took time to COMMENT before you sat down.    Want to know WHO was the very first student to COMMENT yesterday morning???????

YES PROFESSORS – I WANT TO KNOW!!!!!

I’d like to know too – I was here VERY early myself!

Our very FIRST COMMENTER yesterday was:

Drumroll Please!

MISS SHARON OF FRIENDS FUREVER !!!

WOOO HOOOO MISS SHARON!!!!

This FIRST COMMENTER badge is ALL YOURS:

OH BOY! I was FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser of February 25, 2020 – I’m a “FREQUENT FIRSTIE” !!

YES INDEED YOU ARE MISS SHARON……….a FREQUENT FIRSTIE student for sure!

So  yesterday’s Teaser was from our Graphics Department and it was really a pretty photo – we thought we just might fool everyone with this one but guess what – WE DID NOT!    Here’s the photo:

We asked you to tell us what city and state or country this photo was taken in – and the FIRST student to tell us it was taken in ZARAGOZA, SPAIN was:

Drumroll Please!

MISS JACKIE OF TWO DEVON CATS!

HIPPITY HIP HOORAY for Miss Jackie!!!

CONCATULATIONS Miss Jackie – you are also a FREQUENT FIRST RIGHT GUESSER in class……!   Here is your badge:

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of February 25, 2020 – WOW – I am a force to be reckoned with!!!!

We had other right guessers yesterday too – and in fact our Security Director Clowie was ALMOST our First Right Guesser – she was hot on the trail but didn’t QUITE beat out Miss Jackie with the correct guess.     If you were also right but not first, we have a BADGE for that…………..please take one (you too CLOWIE!):

I was RIGHT with my guess on the Teaser of February 25, 2020 but I was NOT FIRST! Maybe next week?????

If you were WRONG with your guess…………….well by now you know that you don’t walk away empty-handed.   We have a badge for everyone who TRIED but were WRONG:

Gosh – I thought I was right but I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of February 25, 2020. At least I still get a cool badge to inspire me to do better next week! Boo Hoo!

Concatulations Students!

WRONG AGAIN!!!!!

No worries – you can study hard this week and perhaps win something next week! 

I bet the Cheer Team will CHEER you all up and get you ready to pop off to lunch and then HOME for the rest of the day……………………..girls?   Take it away!

This week’s winners are familiar faces!
They recognize the photos taken in so many places!
Our First Commenter was Sharon – she’s an early riser
To be FIRST COMMENTER for her is not a “surpriser” !!!
Then we waited to see who would guess the Teaser location
Miss Jackie of course – the smartest in her nation!!
We’re proud of all who guessed cuz it’s sometimes rough
But Ding Dong School students are made of STRONG STUFF!!!!!!

Now – who’s UP for lunch?    I know we are.    Let’s go shall we???    You’re free to head home after lunch students.

Happy Tell All Tuesday Students…..we’re ready to tell all of you what’s on the menu today!
