Bacon Bash!

Standard

Make Note Of This Date!

Oh I’m so excited – no wait – I mean WE are both excited……….Teddy and I think next Saturday is the perfect day for the HARVEST – the crop is looking like perfection and I’m sure we’ll have a ton of fun harvesting.

It will be ALL DAY so no worries about being here at a particular time OK?    Just come when you can, pick as much bacon as you can manage, and you’ll get to take some home of course as well as sample some bacon delights at the bacon buffet table while you’re here!

I have some goodies for you in prep for next Saturday though……………………it’s impawtant to wear the proper clothes – you can wear what you want BUT if you want to be totally comfy, here are some ideas you can feel free to “copy” from the post and use!

FOR THE GUYS:

FOR THE GALS:

FOR EVERYONE!

We’ll all use a wheelbarrow as we work our way through the greenhouse harvesting…………..doesn’t have to be THIS ONE so if you have one of your own, bring it along!    You can have one of ours (this yellow doozy) if you need one though.

How This Will Work:    If you would like to have your photo in the “lineup” of participants for the Harvest, just send me BACK a picture of you in your harvest clothing – something from what I’ve provided above OR your own outfit – and with or without a wheelbarrow (!) BY THURSDAY, MARCH 23.    Email a picture of you in your harvest finery to junekimm(at)aol(dot)com and we’ll put your photo in the Saturday Harvest post along with everyone else who is able to photoshop.   If you aren’t able to, no worries – you don’t HAVE to be dressed up to come to the party OR to be eligible for our giveaway.  OK?    It’s just for FUN!!!!   

GREENHOUSE CENTRAL!

The greenhouse is bursting with ripe bacon so there will be plenty to do for everyone……….and of course plenty of breaks for a snack or drink – I don’t want you overworking!!!!

We’ll have a special guest there all day long too – Suzie from Teaser Tuesdays will be there in all her glory pumping up the energy level with her cheers…………….

I’ll be there to cheer you on
But don’t expect me there at dawn
Beauty sleep is what I need
My body doesn’t operate on FAST speed!
During the day I’ll CHEER CHEER CHEER
As long as Sammy brings me BEER BEER BEER!

 

Our greenhouse staff is excited too – they will be helping but after all, they’ve been working in the greenhouse all these months so if you catch one of them napping in a quiet corner, don’t wake them up – they deserve a break!

THE GREENHOUSE SUPERVISOR

PLANT TENDER

PLANT INSPECTOR

OFFICIAL GARDEN GNOME

We will also have a short “passing on the crown” ceremony when I make my little brother Teddy the new KING OF BACONIA………….I will remain “HONORARY” KING EMERITUS however – and will always help out as my duties at the Bridge allow me to.

SO – Will see see you here next Saturday?   I hope so!  

We’re gonna have a blast AND a giveaway too!

YEP YODA WE ALL DO!

Teaser Tell All

Hello Teaser Fans!

Welcome back to the place where you can find out WHO wins WHAT on this week’s Teaser!

I was actually very surprised that the First Right Guesser came a knockin’ on the door SHORTLY after the post went live yesterday morning.   I thought it would be a bit of a toughie and so did the person who sent the photo in to us as a Teaser Conundrum.   Shall we give you all the info?  Oh yeah – lets!

The Teaser photo was from the Kitties Blue (The Cat On My Head) and it’s a great photo of the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia!   Kind of an exotic thing right?

Cool photo Kitties Blue – and to thank you for sending it in, here’s a badge for you!

For Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head 3/14/17

Who was FIRST to make a comment on yesterday’s blog?    Well, let me back up a bit to tell you that when we went live at 7:45 NOBODY was there – I think it was the first time in FOREVER it took a couple of minutes for someone to chime in and comment.   I think because of the early posting time it was too early for there to be a lot of Teasers-On-Duty right?    HOWEVER, after about 2 or 3 minutes someone DID comment and who was that someone who wins the FIRST COMMENTER badge this week????

Friends Furever

YAY – concatulations! This is for you:

Then it was not long after that we received the FIRST RIGHT GUESS and that was from:

Calvin and Oliver!  (and Mom Melissa)

This is for you!

Several other RIGHT GUESSERS popped in along the way yesterday and for each of you who guessed right, you get this:

Now I have to say that there were MORE than a few of you who guessed incorrectly – but remember – you’re still winners of GREENIES!  Help yourself to this:

So we had winners and we had fun – just like we ALWAYS do on Tuesdays right?

Make sure you are here next Monday for Pre-Tease Monday because if you aren’t here, Sarge might get angry.   You know you don’t want that to happen!

BE THERE OR BE SQUARE!

Teddy and I hope to see you NEXT week!!

Hugs, Angel Sammy and Teddy Too

 


Friendly Fill-Ins!

Standard

Let’s Fill In Shall We??

Every week we pawticipate in a fun Blog Hop co-hosted by 15andMeowing and McGuffy’s Reader……….it’s tons of fun……….if you haven’t “filled in the blanks” before, you should give it a whirl!   You can click on the above badge and go to McGuffy’s and use the Linky Tool to join in!!

We took a look at the questions and decided that Mom would be the best one to answer these………we don’t watch much TV or have crushes (tee hee) but Mom probably did 87 years ago so take it away Mom!   Her responses are in ORANGE (or is it GINGER?!)!

Here are this week’s four sentences!

1. I hope Eastenders gets renewed for another season.

2. My first crush was a boy named Dewey – I think it was third or fourth grade.   He was adorable but not yet interested in LUV.  Too bad for him!.

3. Chocolate usually makes me get a headache but it’s SOOOOO worth it!.

4. If I were a super-hero, I would be exhausted all the time.
So there we are!    Thanks Mom – you did a good job.   We are proud of ya…………………..!

Yep – we sure are!

Uhhuh Mom – we are!

See you tomorrow for BACON SATURDAY……!

P.S.  Thank you Cousin Bacon and everyone at the Hotel Thompson for the “goodie package” I got in the mail Thursday!   It was for my first birthday and had treats and a squirrel stuffie inside!   Oh boy!    

I’m sending you Teddy Hugs and Love  ♥♥

We are also sending hugs to Miss Laura and all the Tabbies O Trout Towne because their Boomer has gone to the Bridge.   Of course I was there along with MANY other friends to welcome him but left behind are the family – and the friends – and everyone will miss him greatly.   Love goes on forever though…………and Boomer will always be in your hearts.

If you click the badge above, you may go and leave a message at their blog……

 

 

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Let’s TELL It All !!  

Hello Teaser fans…………..we thought MAYBE we might just get a bunch of you to head down the WRONG garden path to an answer yesterday with the photo – it was a night time shot, there were horses so it looked kind of “Western-ish”…………..but instead of that, a whole PILE of you knew it right off the bat……………..but that’s leaping ahead a bit.  Let me back up and start at the beginning!

The first person to comment yesterday actually wasn’t just ONE person – we had THREE!    Who?

Oliver and Calvin and Miss Csilla

CONGRATULATIONS!

So why don’t I tell you NOW who my Guest Teaser was for the photo yesterday……………………….shall I?   Here’s the photo:

Pretty spectacular photo isn’t it???   Well it was sent in by our good friend Leo from WalkandPigOut and it was taken by him at the Hermitage of El Rocio, Almonte, Province of Huelva, in Andalusia, Spain.   You may know Leo and if you do you know not only does he travel a WHOLE LOT but he lives in Spain.   He says this location is often PACKED with people so we were lucky to be able to see it in a “non-super-busy” moment!   It’s such beautiful architecture……..we had several guesses that were correct but it fooled quite a few people too with some guesses that it was Mexico, or Texas – somewhere in the USA Southwest.   Thank you Leo!   This is for you:

For Leo on March 8, 2017

Now who was the smarty pants (or in this instance who were the multiple smarty-pants!) who guessed correctly FIRST????   We again had a tie – a perfect tie at the same minute as two answers arrived that were right at 8:20AM my time.   Who?

Oliver and Calvin (YES AGAIN!) and Friends Furever!

CONGRATULATIONS!

You both get one of these:

AND then there were SEVERAL others who guessed correctly, and each of you gets this:

AND of course we have the GREENIE BRIGADE which consists of those of you who were WRONG – you get this:

If you came here and looked at the photo and made a guess – you’re a winner in our book anyway! 

Now here’s a bit of a confession from my Mom…………..yesterday a couple of comments went into our WordPress “PENDING” file and Mom didn’t see them right away – so she told someone ELSE that THEY had been first when they actually hadn’t – the two “PENDING” comments were first!     She (and we!) felt bad about that so we want to give Flynn and his Mum Miss Jackie this HONORABLE MENTION because Mom screwed up made a boo boo and had them thinking they were first……………..SORRY FLYNN AND MISS JACKIE!!!

For Flynn and Miss Jackie because Mom made a boo boo on 3/8/2017

Tomorrow we have our weekly poetry challenge – we’re getting through the alphabet for the second time and this week we arrive at the letter “M”…………….just write a poem about something starting with the letter “M” and post a link to your poem in my comments tomorrow OR you can even just write your poem in my comments and SHARE with everyone here!!!   YAY!

See you tomorrow?  I hope so!

As to where we will be NEXT Tuesday in this big wide world, I can’t tell you BUT it will be another Guest Teaser – I have the photo already………….so be purrrrpared for a toughie!

Love, Angel Prof Sammy (and Teddy too)

P.S.  Here’s a badge you can put on your blog if you wanna tell the world you’re a TEASER FAN!

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

Oh boy!  Time for Class!

teaserposterfall2016-1

Here we are on a Monday – getting ready for a Tuesday – which will lead to a Wednesday and it ALL has to do with Teaser!!

This week we have a GUEST TEASER………yep – we know you always have a big SIGH when I say Guest Teaser but this week’s you might like – I think it COULD be an easy one so maybe that will cheer you all up a bit?????

Tomorrow’s post will be live at a surprise time don’t forget – it’s NOT the usual time – that’s so we can catch you off guard and it makes being the FIRST COMMENTER that much more fun.   If you do happen to be the FIRST to comment on tomorrow’s post you will get a special badge from me….you know you want it!   Be ALERT.

Sarge, did you have anything to tell the students about preparing for tomorrow????

YES! GO TO THE BATHROOM BEFORE YOU ARRIVE IN CLASS SO YOU DON'T DISRUPT THINGS LIKE "YOU KNOW WHO" DOES! GOT IT? GOOD!

YES! GO TO THE BATHROOM BEFORE YOU ARRIVE IN CLASS SO YOU DON’T DISRUPT THINGS LIKE “YOU KNOW WHO” DOES! GOT IT? GOOD!

Uhoh…….I hope little Bobby doesn’t get too upset……oh wait – I don’t see Bobby in class………..does anyone know where Bobby is today?

"I do Professor Angel Sammy. Tommy is in the Nurse's Office getting a bandaid for an owie he got on the playground."

“I do Professor Angel Sammy. Bobby is in the Nurse’s Office getting a bandaid for an owie he got on the playground.”

Thank you for that information Sylvia.   Purrrhaps Bobby will be able to join us before we dismiss class today…….ANYWAY, as I was saying, we have prizes to give out tomorrow to the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, all others who are RIGHT GUESSERS, and of course those who are epic failures at guessing – they will get a GREENIE!     Here’s the lineup of goodies:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Now let’s see if Suzie is back to cheer everybody on!   Suzie?    We certainly missed you last week although your substitute did a valiant job of trying to fill-in for you.

Achoo Achoo Achoo I had a cold in my head it's true My head was full of goo My nose dripped on my shoe I've got plenty of germs boo hoo So lemme KISS all of you! Oooooey gooooey germs Are better than a pie full of worms! Ra Ra ROOOOOOO Here comes the FLU!

Achoo Achoo Achoo
I had a cold in my head it’s true
My head was full of goo
My nose dripped on my shoe
I’ve got plenty of germs boo hoo
So lemme KISS all of you!
Oooooey gooooey germs
Are better than a pie full of worms!
Ra Ra ROOOOOOO
Here comes the FLU!

Well Suzie, now I’m not so sure we really MISSED you all that much – if you’re still sick with a cold please do NOT kiss everyone and please do NOT leave your dirty Kleenexes all over the classroom!

NEVER A DULL MOMENT IN GEOGRAPHY CLASS!

So, I’ll see you back here tomorrow Class……………..hopefully you can all escape the clutches of Suzie and Bobby will be back in his desk after spending a ridiculous amount of time getting a bandaid put on a boo boo.

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

What Time Is It Class????

teaserposterfall2016-1

Well done!  I’m proud of you!

Happy Monday and today we will get ourselves fired up for tomorrow’s BIG TEST – the Tuesday Teaser of the week.   It is NOT a Guest Teaser this week either………..and I’m not going to give you any hints.  You’re on your own kids.   Now for some reminders:

  1. First person to COMMENT on tomorrow’s blog wins a badge for being FIRST COMMENTER……….
  2. When you make a guess as to where the photo was taken, you MUST (absolutely MUST) tell me what CITY,VILLAGE or TOWN as well as what STATE (if USA) or COUNTRY (if not USA) the photo was taken.   You can’t just say the name of a country – that’s not specific enough – GOT IT????
  3. If you are the FIRST to guess correctly, my Mom usually will send you an email to let you know then you must not give it away to the other Teaser peeps who are stopping by to guess OK?   It takes the fun away from them if you say “I GOT IT RIGHT” – let them have fun figuring it out too!
  4. The are badges for FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, RIGHT GUESSER, and of course THE GREENIE for incorrect guesses.

GOT IT????   GOOD!

Now, what do you say we bring Suzie in for a rousing cheer to get you in the mood??!!

Professor Sammy??? I hafta use the restroom Sir.....

Professor Sammy??? I hafta use the restroom Sir…..

Bobby you can be excused but hurry back because I know you don’t want to miss Suzie doing her THING!    Go on……………Sarge will escort you.

MOVE IT, MOVE IT, MOVE IT!!!!!!! Let's go.....

MOVE IT, MOVE IT, MOVE IT!!!!!!! Let’s go…..

Professor Sammy??? All of a sudden I don't hafta go anymore.....(gulp)....

Professor Sammy??? All of a sudden I don’t hafta go anymore…..(gulp)….

OK – fine – I can’t blame you………………now – Suzie??????????????????

COME ON IN SUZIE!

COME ON IN SUZIE!

Me I'm cute and sassy If I eat beans I get kinda gassy The Prof has a new little bro Who I'd like to get to know! I'll send a note to Teddy To tell him I am READY! RA RA REE IT'S ALL ABOUT ME!

Good old Sarge
He gives class a charge
He’s sometimes a bit grumpy
Keeps us straight and never slumpy

Who I’d like to get to know!
I’ll send a note to Teddy
To tell him I am READY!

Thanks Suzie but I have to tell you that my little brother is OFF LIMITS……………he’s not even lived at my house for three weeks and already you’ve “got designs” on  him!!!   Seriously though, Teddy will turn one year old in a week so we’ll plan a little tiny party for him the week of his birthday OK?   Just cake and fruit juice purrhaps.   Teddy – what do you say?   You’ve been at the back of the classroom observing today – do you want to say anything?

 teasersteddy

Thanks Big Bro but I’ll just keep observing!

Alright then, I think we can safely excuse class for the rest of the day – but you’d all better show up tomorrow for the Teaser………………..at an UNSPECIFIED and HIGHLY SECRET time!    Not our usual blog time!

SEE YOU TOMORROW EVERYONE AND GOOD LUCK!

We have two posts to do today – we’re helping Bacon at PigLove out with the Shopping Around The World monthly post he does – by hosting for him so we’ll have THAT post as well as the usual Friendly Fill-Ins post which is co-hosted by McGuffy’s Reader and 15andMeowing!

First up – Friendly Fill-Ins!   You can click McGuffy’s Reader link above if you’d like to join up – just go there and use the linky tool to include your blog post in the fun OR just visit everyone else’s posts!    This week we let our Mom fill in……….aren’t we nice to SHARE????   Take it away Mom!   Her answers are in RED!

1. I wish Muu Muus (super baggy Hawaiian style dresses!) would come back in style.
2. I always have little packets of Kleenex in my purse ( or wallet for men).
3. I think that I am just a LITTLE freaked out by the fact I’m turning SEVENTY this year!.
4. Rudeness  is a pet peeve of mine.
YAY MOM!    Well done……………if someone asked me what a Muu Muu was I think I’d say it was a pair of cows but that’s just me (har har har).
Now on with the next part of our double blog today which is (drum roll please):

Shopping Around The World!

SHOPPINGAROUNDTHEWORLD

This month’s assignment was to do a main course dish which contained no MEAT, FISH or CHICKEN……………..so I’m gonna tell you about Mom’s fave – slow cooker Mac and Cheese!

macandcheese

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) elbow macaroni   (16 oz. box $1.39)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted (16 oz. $5.49)
  • 4 cups (16 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided  (16 oz. $2.99)
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk (12 oz. $1.49)
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cheddar cheese soup, undiluted (1 can $1.89)
  • 1 cup 2% milk (128 oz. $2.69)
  • 2 large eggs, beaten  (1 doz. $1.15)
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika  (on hand already!)

Directions

  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain. Place in a 5-qt. slow cooker; add butter. In a large bowl, mix 3 cups cheese, evaporated milk, condensed soup, 2% milk and eggs. Pour over macaroni mixture; stir to combine. Cook, covered, on low 3-1/2 to 4 hours or until a thermometer reads at least 160°.
  2. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cook, covered, on low 15-20 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with paprika. Yield: 10 servings.

Mom whacks this whole recipe in half sometimes but then again you know what?   This is one DY-NO-MITE leftover dish too………..so making a whole pile of it at once is dandy – you can have it AGAIN a few nights later!!!!  WOO HOO!!!!

There you have it – a double poster today!

Bacon will be hosting his Shopping Blog again next month!
