Teaser Tell All Time!

Standard

Class Time! 

Step right up students of geographical mysteries!   Have a seat and pay attention – it’s time to TELL ALL about yesterday’s Teaser!

Professor Sam and Professor Teddy I studied HARD all morning and STILL don’t know the answer! This was TOUGH!

You’re right – it was a very tough Teaser and we didn’t think ANYONE would guess it but guess what……………someone did!   More than ONE someone!     But let’s back up a bit and talk about who was FIRST COMMENTER………….we had a TIE for FIRST COMMENTER this week.

Da Phenny (trying to beat Angel Easy’s record!)

Miss Csilla of Trifles (Kolytyi)

Concatulations!

Then we must say we figured all day people would be guessing and getting nowhere with the photo we posted which was THIS ONE:

BUT we were wrong……………..because not long after we went live, someone guessed the right TOWN and COUNTRY which we thought was a miracle.    Who was that lucky ducky?    Well it wasn’t a ducky, it was my friend Timmy Tomcat !!     Here’s your badge Timmy!

He guessed the photo was taken in Brno, Czech Republic and it was.   This is actually the Town Hall in Brno.   Here are a couple of other photos of it:

It’s a beautiful building and you can CLICK HERE for more information!

WHO sent me these gems???   It was our wandering racewalker who has been racing all across Europe lately in various racing competition – the fabulous Leo!   This is for you Leo!

For Leo for the Teaser photo of 4/25/17

I have to say that another friend posted HER answer and was RIGHT ON THE MONEY guessing the Town Hall – that was my friend Shoko – and there were SEVERAL others who guessed Brno so for the rest of you who did, please take THIS:

Those of you who were wrong will get the fabulous Greenie…………….

Concatulations to EVERYONE – that really was a tough Teaser!

WHERE will we be going next week to give you a challenge?   You never know – it could be anywhere on the globe……….so make sure between now and then, you study up!   You know you want one of the winner badges – surely some of you have totally covered your homes in GREEN and are ready for a nice “FIRST RIGHT GUESSER” to hang over the fireplace on your green wall right?

Assistant Professor Teddy and I will be waiting to see you next Monday for the Pre-Tease warm-up then Tuesday for the BIG SHOW AND TELL!!!!!

Angel Prof Sammy and Assistant Prof Ted

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

It’s TEASER Time!

ATTENTION CLASS! FACE FORWARD…..LISTEN TO THE PROFS!

Thank you Sarge…………………..First order of business is to remind you that you need to comment on this post NOW for a chance to be the FIRST COMMENTER today!   You win a badge if you are first!

Second order of business is to remind you that you must guess the city/town/village AND the state (if USA) or country (if not USA) that is shown in the photo!   Telling me what planet the photo was taken on is swell but it doesn’t get you extra points!   (haha)

This is a GUEST TEASER and tomorrow when we tell you who wins what, etc. we will tell you WHO our Guest Teaser was and WHERE he/she/it took the photo!    Are we clear????

YES PROFESSOR SAMMY

YES PROFESSORS!

“I’M READY TOO SIR”

Excellent!  Let’s get Suzie to REV up her engine!

Rip it up!
Hey whatsssup?
Time to get guessin’
Cuz with my mind you are messin’ !
Want a clue?
Too bad for you!
I don’t cheat
But I’ve got cute feet!

Gee for you that was a SHORT cheer Suzie!    Thanks for getting the attention of the students though – you never fail to do that even if your cheer is SHORT!!

Mr. Silver Briefcase will you please bring in the Guest Teaser Photo that you’ve had LOCKED up all week so there would be no peeking or cheating???    Thank you!

Yes sir….here’s today’s challenge!

 

Now if this isn’t a TOUGHIE – I don’t know a TOUGHIE when I see one!    Not much to go on is there but I have FAITH that someone will “GET IT” !!!!!     Now get to work everyone and figure this one out!

If you are the FIRST to guess correctly, you will win:

If you are RIGHT but aren’t first you will win:

AND if you are wrong as wrong can be then you will win:

So, let’s go gang!   Put on those thinking caps and figure this one out – tomorrow when we have the TEASER TELL ALL, I’ll show you another photo of the FRONT of this structure – but for now – all you get is this BACK view…………………Yes Roger in the back of the room – you have your paw raised?   Have something you want to say???

Just that this is a toughie. I’d ask my brother back home to help me with this Teaser but last time I asked for help know what he said to me?????

Well hopefully all of you don’t have a brother at home who isn’t cooperative!

See you all in school tomorrow for the TEASER TELL ALL!

Filling In on Friday!

Standard

Time To Fill In Sentences!

A FUN Blog Hop co-hosted by 15andMeowing and McGuffy’s Reader

Every Friday we get to complete some sentences “our way” – two from McGuffy’s Reader and two from 15andMeowing.  If you’d like to play along, just click the badge above and go to McGuffy’s Reader, use the LINKY tool and join in the fun!

This week’s sentences are below, and we let our Mom do the filling-in as the sentences are more “human-friendly” than animal friendly this week!   Mom’s responses are in BLUE!

1. The most interesting museum I have been to is The Natural History Museum here in Washington, DC on the National Mall.
2. The most interesting historical place I have been to is Rome, Italy.
3. Spring is back!    (just in time too – we were SOOO ready to get rid of the cold!)

4. I was surprised that I got the yard mowed this morning BEFORE we got rain….usually it doesn’t WAIT for me!

We look forward to filling in every week……Mom said that she had SEVERAL to choose from for #1 and #2 as she’s traveled a lot AND been to all kinds of interesting museums around the world.  It’s sometimes hard to “pick just one” !!

Teddy and I hope you all have a GREAT Friday and weekend…………….I’ll be busy at the Bridge on some projects and classes but Teddy will be terrorizing my parents and having fun all weekend I’m sure.   When you’re a youngster EVERYTHING is fun (except going to the vet I guess!).

Love and Hugs, Angel Sam and Ted

Thankful Thursday

Standard

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday!

Today we do TWO posts in one!   First of all we talk about being Thankful for Brian’s Thankful Thursday Hop – and you can visit him by clicking the above badge and join in the hop with the LINKY tool…..tell us why you are THANKFUL…….I’m thankful because I have a special guest here at my house.   Someone Angel Sammy met and hosted for a while and now it’s MY turn to show this friend a good time.   Who?   It’s our good friend Bashful the rock-n-roller who lives with Bacon at the Hotel Thompson!

We will tell you about his visit here in the next couple of days but just so you know – he’s being kept company by one of Mom’s stuffed piggies AND one of Sammy’s stuffed kitty pillows.   He has naps in this spot and since this guy travels ALL THE TIME, he naps almost as much as I do!    THANKS for visiting us Bashful!

Part Two of Today’s Post is:

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday which is when we celebrate another letter of the alphabet as we make our way from A to Z………….and today the letter we have to use is the letter “S” !   If you have written a poem on your blog, why not post your blog link in my comments so we can read it!  OR you can post your poem HERE if you like in a comment.    Poetry is the spice of life!!  Write some today!   NEXT WEEK WE DO “T” !

“Snow”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 4/20/17

Snow, snow, so cold on the toes

Icicles hanging from your kitty pink nose.

Now you need to hear this bit of news from the Bridge

There’s no snow up here from the sea to the ridge!

It’s sunny each day and breezy each night

But there’s no white stuff falling – that just wouldn’t be right!

Snow is for you back here in this life

At the Bridge we don’t deal with trouble and strife!

We work hard up here, don’t get me wrong

But “Let It Snow” you won’t hear as our favorite SONG!

I might dream about snow but I don’t have to see it here at the Rainbow Bridge!!

As all of you know by now, Nellie joined me and so many others here at the Rainbow Bridge last Friday………..she is happy here but misses everyone “back home” especially her Mom.    My Mom thought she’d put together a little slideshow of some of the wonderful graphics and posters sweet Nellie and her Mom did for us through the years……Nellie’s Mom is a wonderful artist and Nellie was a great inspiration for her I’m sure!    We will treasure all of our memories forever and ever………………these are just a few of our special  moments.

Teddy and I thank YOU for visiting us today!

Hugs, Angel Sam and Ted

 

Bacon Day

Standard

I, King Teddy, Proclaim It To Be

BACON SATURDAY!

Shall we begin the celebration of Saturday?????

Seriously?

Surely we aren’t supposed to BELIEVE this are we????

 

CAN HAZ, SHOULD HAZ and WILL HAZ!  Right gang???

My big brother in his bacon hat……..I sure miss him!

“Hi Phenny!  Would you just deliver all of those hams and bacons to my house please???”

Whoever says roses smell THE BEST was right – assuming they meant BACON roses!!!!

Some of you have asked what the Greenhouse staff is doing since we had the BIG HARVEST PARTY……Well, Miss Marsha, the Greenhouse Supervisor took her “bacon bonus” we gave her for doing such a fabulous job tending the crop this first year that she’s bought a new car and a new house and is looking forward to next year’s harvest – AFTER she comes back from her vacation in Tahiti!

Not bad!

My kinda vacation spot!!!

Miss Marsha – job well done!

Now if you’ll excuse me….

I think I’ll stretch out (yawn….)

and take a bit of a snoozer!  

Happy Saturday!

Love, Teddy the Baconator!

 

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

Double Post Day!

(First of all sorry for the confusion yesterday – Mom ACCIDENTALLY hit “publish” instead of SCHEDULE for this post and you got a notice a day early!   We quickly deleted it – but here it is again on the RIGHT DAY!!!!!!)  

First part of my blog today is for THANKFUL THURSDAY.    Today I’m VERY thankful – Why?   Many things but today I’ll tell you just one reason – Spring is popping here finally.   As recently as one week ago we had a frost/freeze warning but for the last several days we’ve had WARM temps and the little leaf buds on the trees are bursting open in leaps and bounds!    Our pink dogwoods have pink blossoms and the little dwarf Japanese maple has leafed out – the maple was my FAVORITE spot to stay cool in the summer and we think Teddy has figured that out now too!

Front Garden 2012

Want to share what you are thankful about?   We are sharing by joining Brian’s THANKFUL THURSDAY blog hop………..all you have to do is click the badge, go to his blog, use the LINKY TOOL and enter your blog address – SHARE with all of us what you’re thankful for.  EASY!

Now for PART TWO of this post and that’s my Thoroughly Poetic Thursday post……………….this week we are up to the letter “R” in the alphabet so the poem needs to be about an “R” thing!

“R”

“Rabbit”

By Sammy Kimmell, April 13, 2017

It’s a well known Easter habit

Watching out for the Easter rabbit!

He comes when everyone is sleeping

On bunny feet he does all his creeping

He hides eggs around the house

He’s QUIET as a mouse!

Kids will carry their baskets around

To see how many eggs can be found!

Sometimes the bunny leaves candy –

The basket will sure come in handy –

For carrying around all your treasures….

Such fun is impossible to measure.

Easter Rabbit makes everyone SMILE

Makes older folks feel like a child.

The Easter holiday would not be complete

Without those visiting RABBIT feet!!

Next Thursday we will celebrate the letter “S” as we make our way to the end of the alphabet for the second time here on the blog!    I hope you will join us – it’s not too late to join in today – you can write a poem and put it in my comments OR if you have a poem done on your blog – leave us your link so we can HOP over and read it!    Try some poetry – you’ll be glad you did!!

Love, Angel Sammy

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Hello Class!   Come In For The Tell All

So we all survived Teaser Tuesday and here we are for Tell All Wednesday.    I know you’re DYING to know the scoop on that amazing “place” we showed you yesterday but first, let’s talk about WHO was our FIRST COMMENTER!

This week there was only one who came in to comment in the first 60 seconds after the post went live and that was (drum roll please):

Miss Csilla (Kolytyi)

For Csilla, April 12, 2017

Concatulations Miss Csilla!     Now who was our fabulous friend who sent us the very amazing photos?    Let’s show you the photos AGAIN……….

The photos came to us from Miss Annie of Animal Couriers!     She has actually visited and STAYED at this awesome structure called The Balancing Barn, located in Suffolk, UK……………….and it’s available to rent should you find you like the idea of being in mid-air when you lay your weary head down at night after a long day of sightseeing the British countryside!!!     Here’s a link you can investigate!

CLICK HERE

Neato………………..and what a treat it must have been to stay in the place – it’s gorgeous on the inside – on the link above you will see some more photos.   You should take a peek!

Thank You Miss Annie!   This is for you:

For Annie Alexander of Animal Couriers for the Teaser of 4/11/17

Now, I’m sure some of you were hoping Suzie would come here and cheer for the winner and give a big old razz to the losers but guess what – she’s away at a cheerleading squad meeting and isn’t here today.   Cool?    But we DO have someone who said they would do a quick cheer………a round of applause for her please???

CLAPPITY CLAPPITY CLAP CLAP…………………

RA RA RINKY DIRTY SOCKS ARE STINKY I’M SUZIE’S GRANNY WATCH OUT OR I’LL SWAT YOUR FANNY.

Uhhh…………………………..thanks…………………sort of……………………let’s hope Suzie’s back next week…………..although now we see where she got her CHEERING TALENT from!!

The FIRST RIGHT GUESSER today on this UNIQUE Teaser, was none other than Da Phenny who is just back from a vacation in Paris with his Mom and Dad!     Phenny, this is for you!

There were several more of you who guessed correctly – that it was the BALANCING BARN…………and each of you get this:

And those of you who were NOT right………..well, first of all don’t feel bad because a lot of people came, looked at the photo and didn’t guess – you guessed (wrong) but you guessed!  This is your reward!

Next week who knows where we’ll be

or what the Teaser photo will show us…..

one thing I do know is

we will have FUN with it right Class?

YES PROFESSOR SAMMY!

Teddy and I hope to see you NEXT week!!

Angel Prof Sammy!

 

Teaser Tell All

Standard

The Scoop on the Teaser!

First of all thanks for helping us celebrate the 200th Teaser yesterday………it was great – we had lots of people stopping by just to wish us at least 200 more Teasers but also to PAR-TAY with us a bit and have a guess at the photo this week!

We tried to use a photo yesterday that would be TOUGH…………….we really did!    We had a Guest Teaser post and when we saw this photo we thought “that’s the one!”  – as it turned out, it was guessed correctly fairly quickly!   Oh well – maybe next week???

Here’s the photo from yesterday:

This is a rather interesting aerial view of the town of Brasov which is in the Transylvania region of Romania!   Just look at all those tiled roofs……and so many winding streets and courtyards.   We owe this photo to our friend Gracie of “Goodness Gracie” and SHE got it from a friend in Indianapolis, Indiana who has been here.   THANK YOU EVERYONE!   Here’s your badge of thanks!

For Gracie and her Friend for the Teaser of 3/28/17

I bet you wanna know WHO won all the special badges yesterday right?    Well, first of all we had a THREE WAY TIE for “FIRST COMMENTER” (that happens sometimes – we have lots of fast fingers trying to compete for first and as long as they all arrive in the first minute – they all win!).   Who:

Miss Csilla, Da Phenny, and Oliver and Calvin!

 

Next we have our “FIRST RIGHT GUESSER”……………………..and she was one of our FIRST COMMENTERS……………..Miss Csilla!

And we had SEVERAL others who guessed right too – all of YOU get this:

By now you know that even if you guess WRONG, you’re still a WINNER – and for all the WRONGIES, we have a GREENIE!

YAY!

Thanks for helping us celebrate
If you’re ready to guess – you’re WAY TOO LATE!
Miss Csilla won – she’s knows her stuff
Now don’t be jealous, don’t get in a huff!
Next week you might be first you see…..
Then maybe you’ll get a big KISS from me!
(OR NOT)

So we bring our 200th celebration of Teaser-hood to a close………………thanks everybody for making Tuesdays around here so much fun.    We will continue as long as you’re enjoying it – and as long as we have photos to share of course!

Tomorrow is Thankful Thursday at Brian’s and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday HERE.    Our letter to celebrate this week for a poem is the letter “P”.    Why not write a poem about something starting with “P” and join us????   It’s fun……….honest it is……….and you can spread your wings and try something NEW if you haven’t written a poem before………….

Class Dismissed until NEXT Week!

Teddy and I hope to see you NEXT week!!

 

Hugs, from Angel Prof Sam and Assistant Prof Ted

Pre-200th Teaser Monday

Standard

What?????    200 Teasers???  

Yeah…that’s right!

Can you believe it?   Tomorrow we will be posting our #200 Teaser…………200 fun photos that you’ve had to try and figure out – that’s a lot of figuring isn’t it?    Well class, we will have to sort of celebrate tomorrow right?

YES Professor Sammy – we should celebrate – I’ll get Mom to bake some cookies!

Me too Professor Sam – I’ll get my Mom to make some cookies too!

Well that’s nice class……………we’ll have cookies and hot chocolate after class is over tomorrow – how’s that???

Bobby make sure your Mom doesn’t put any WACKY WEED in those cookies! We will NOT tolerate that! Got it?

Oh SARGE – I’m sure Bobby’s mother would never do anything like that – in fact I’m disappointed you would even bring up a subject like that in class!   Anyway, where was I……oh yes.   We’ll have a little celebration but we will STILL have class so that means we will STILL have a photo that you will need to examine and study and figure out.    Also, please remember that whoever arrives here in class FIRST tomorrow and leaves a COMMENT on the Teaser blog will win a SPECIAL “First Commenter” badge!    In fact, all the badges will have “200th Teaser” on them so you know you will want one of those right?   Better be ON THE BALL tomorrow then.

It will be a GUEST TEASER photo…………………………………………

What?  You’re sad that it’s a GUEST Teaser?  They’re the MOST fun!!!!!  C’mon – get in the spirit!

Suzie – we need you to cheer everyone up………

C’mon class, let’s be HAPPY
200 Teasers is really quite snappy!
The Prof has worked hard to give you some FUN
Just think about all those badges that have been won!
It’s been way cool visiting all the places
Seeing the sights and
happy faces
So get a GRIP and give me a giggle…..
No tears or frowns like
a SOUR pickle!

Thanks SuzieQ!   That’s the spirit!

So remember, tomorrow’s post will pop up at some surprise time……………………….not at the usual time for the blog posts – a SURPRISE time.    Be alert………..be ready………….most of all BE AWAKE!

Don’t let us down class! 

You’re right Teddy – we want everyone to be tuned in tomorrow!  

See you in the morning……CLASS DISMISSED
