Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

Come On In Students!

Happy Monday and if you’ll take your seats at your desks, we will get started with our Monday Pre-Tease class………..first of all, please remember that our TEASER post tomorrow will be popping out onto the airwaves at a SURPRISE time…………..not our usual time……………makes things more interesting that way!    When it arrives, whoever is the FIRST to comment on the post gets a swell badge.    Now isn’t that exciting?   Of course it is!

Professor what if NOBODY comes to the Teaser post tomorrow……has that ever happened????

No Bobby – happily we’ve never had NOBODY show up on a Teaser Post day or for that matter any OTHER day in all the years I’ve been teaching class here.   So you don’t have to worry about that.  SOMEONE will be First Commenter, someone will be FIRST RIGHT GUESSER and there will be other RIGHT GUESSERS and we all know that there’s never a shortage of people qualifying for the GREENIE – all you have to do to get THAT one is be wrong on your guess!

Now, let’s see if our resident cheerleader Suzie might step into the classroom and give us a rousing cheer to get everyone in the mood for the TEASER tomorrow!!!

I’m here WITHOUT my posse’
Those girls were way too bossy
I’m here to shake my pom poms
NOT to eat some bon bons!
We’ll be ready for some Teaser players
I bet they’re home saying their prayers
Everyone wants to be FIRST
Or else they’ll be the WORST!
Study up and be ready
That goes for you too Teddy!

Thank you Suzie…………that was……………well……………..inspiring.

*****SOUND OF GIGGLING IN THE BACK OF THE CLASSROOM*****

No giggling in class or ELSE!

Alright students, thank you for paying attention today – and I wish each and every one of you a happy Monday – I’ll see you BRIGHT AND EARLY for tomorrow’s Teaser!

School Is In Session!

Welcome to Geography class students……..nice to see your smiling or yawning faces (whichever category you may be in this morning).    FIRST UP – make sure and leave a comment NOW on this blog so you can possibly be my FIRST COMMENTER today and win this:

teaserbadgeoct2016-1Hurry up – we’ll wait for you………………………….

teaserfirstguessingcat

Yes Bobby?   “Professor Sammy can I go to the litterbox while we’re waiting for people to comment?”

YES Bobby but hurry because Sarge will not be happy if you take too long!

That's right Bobby - get your REAR in GEAR and march quickly! Hup-two-three-four.......

That’s right Bobby – get your REAR in GEAR and march quickly! Hut-two-three-four…….

OK – looks like Bobby is back and you all are back so let’s get on with today’s Teaser photo shall we?    Let me remind you that the object of this exercise is to guess the spot where these photos were taken – what town/village/city AND what state or country (depending on whether you think it’s in the USA or elsewhere) were they taken?    It’s all about examining photos and figuring out any clues and making a guess.   AND if you are the FIRST to guess correctly you will win this:

teaserbadgeoct2016-2

If you guess correctly but just aren’t FIRST to guess correctly, you will get this:

teaserbadgeoct2016-3

And those of you who guess but are WRONG, get the GREENIE!

teaserbadgeoct2016-4

SO ARE WE READY? 

Mr. Silver Briefcase would you pretty please bring in the photos you have diligently guarded with your life since last week?????    There are TWO photos today sent in by our Guest Teaser!

Here I am in my Park Ranger/Top Secret Courier outfit with today's PHOTOS!

YES I blanked out a few CLUES but you should still have some left to help you figure this out!  Remember it must be the TOWN and COUNTRY OR STATE where these were snapped!

Tomorrow I will do the TEASER TELL ALL and you will find out who our winner (if we have one!) is and who else got it or didn’t.

GOOD LUCK STUDENTS!

C'mon students! Get those brains in gear.....let's see some GUESSES coming in!

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Telling It All !!

Hi Teaser Fans!    Before we get down to business with the Teaser I must let everyone know that the recruitment for a Teaching Assistant for me has been put on hold for a while.   You all know that I left for the Bridge December 2nd and my Dad has decided that he just still misses me WAY TOO MUCH to bring a new kitty into the house JUST YET.    Mom loves me and misses me too but she’s ready to be a Mom again………HOWEVER, they both need to feel the same on this so until they do, no more trips to the Shelter.   Mom would be bringing all the cats home I’m afraid!!!   SO, I’ll keep you posted but for now, we aren’t recruiting for a while.

NOW ON WITH THE SHOW!

teaser-tellall2016

The Teaser yesterday was not a Guest Teaser – it was one of Mom and Dad’s photos from a trip they took many moons (or suns) ago.   Way before I entered the picture in fact.   Where were they???   Well before I tell you, let’s do some other BUSINESS……………..like telling you WHO was the first commenter yesterday!

KOLYTYI (Miss Csilla) was – WOO HOO!!

teaserbadgeoct2016-1

She was there in the first 60 seconds and was followed thereafter by bunches of other QUICK DRAW peeps but she was first and the only one in the first minute!    Concatulations Miss Csilla!

Here’s the photo from yesterday – and I’ll tell you WHERE it was taken THEN I’ll tell you who got it right FIRST!

teaserjanuary17-2017-3

This is a rather long-distance view of Cape Cod’s famous Provincetown in beautiful Massachusetts!    That thing in the WAY distance is the Pilgrim Monument and you can read all about “P-Town” and the wonderful spot that it is by reading what Wikipedia has to say about it HERE.    Mom and Dad stayed in two spots out on the Cape during this trip but visited Provincetown during the day and had lunch there as well as visited a lot of fun shops.  It’s just a very interesting town and they highly recommend a stroll around the streets!

WHO was my FIRST RIGHT GUESSER?????????

Da Phenny and his Mum and Dad – that’s who!!!

teaserbadgeoct2016-2

BUT there were other right guessers – several of them in fact and those who DID guess Provincetown after Phenny did get this!

teaserbadgeoct2016-3

Then of course there is the FABLED and FABULOUS Greenie and any of you who guessed but were WRONG will get one if you like:

teaserbadgeoct2016-4

Feel free to post it on your blog or Facebook page, etc. because – well – YOU EARNED IT GANG!!!!

Another Successful Geography Class concludes!  

Thank you students for paying attention!

Next week I will have a Teaching Assistant but it won’t be another cat in my household, instead it will be someone Suzie has recommended (UHOH I smell trouble don’t you???).   So you can tune in to see what she’s dug up found in the way of help for OLD PROF SAM.

Tuesday Teaser

Attention Class!

First of all a brief statement about my possible “Teaching Assistant”….Mom and Dad went to the shelter today intending to adopt a kitty and wound up putting a “hold” on one cat but couldn’t really decide on two others.   SO, tomorrow may be the day but today definitely isn’t the day so hang onto your hats – I will FOR SURE have a new Teaching Assistant here in class by NEXT Tuesday Teaser!

teaserposter2016fall

Is everyone settled in your teeny tiny desks with your teeny tiny bottoms planted firmly in your chairs?   Good.   Now we shall begin class.

This week’s Teaser photo will be popping up shortly thanks to Mr. Silver Briefcase BUT before then, I want to remind all of you that whoever COMMENTS on this post (yes – this one you’re reading right now!) FIRST will win this:

teaserbadgeoct2016-1

SO, go ahead and comment then rush back here immediately so you can hear Suzie’s cheer and see the photo OK?????????

The Teaser this week is just one photo – and you need to examine it closely because it could be a photo taken in MANY PLACES in the world – so study it carefully as any good geography student would do!    Before we have photo study time though, shall we invite SuzieQ out to give you some “PUMP IT UP” energy so you’ll do well guessing the Teaser today?

Come On In Suzie!

We're here to TEASE Give us a squeeze I work hard on my cheer So you'd better LISTEN here! Today's Teaser photo Has a bit of lucky mojo You MIGHT be the winna' If you've got winning in ya!

Hello Class!

teaserposterfall2016-1

Can you believe it’s been a WHOLE WEEK since we met to discuss the Teaser for Tuesday???  I can’t….where did this week go?    Well wherever it’s gone, it’s Monday and we need to pump your excitement level up so you’ll be READY for Teaser time tomorrow……….

Remember the post will pop up at a time NOBODY knows – and if you’re the first person to comment on that post tomorrow you will be FIRST COMMENTER and get this:

teaserbadgeoct2016-1

I bet you’d like to win that little baby wouldn’t you????   OH YEAH, you betcha!    So be alert – and also remember that if you just happen to know or think you know where the Teaser photo was taken, you will need to give a COMPLETE GUESS – city/village/town AND state (for USA) or country (for outside of States) in order to be a winner!

SO I will see you RIGHT HERE in class tomorrow morning at some time OK?  OK?

Now here’s some news…………….tomorrow – after noon because that’s when the shelter opens, my Mom and Dad will be heading to the very same shelter where they adopted me almost 17 years ago (it will be exactly 17 years on February 5th!).    Mom has been keeping an eye on the cat room there for WEEKS watching the cats come and go and hoping the right one would be there – and I’ve been behind the scenes working to find JUST THE RIGHT ONE for them!   Who knows – tomorrow may be THE DAY.    So there may be exciting news on the Teaser post Tuesday.   Just think – a Teaser AND a possible new kitty in my house to keep Mom and Dad company – – – one that has the SAMMY SEAL OF APPROVAL!

Tune in tomorrow and we’ll see which of you is FAST on the trigger for the first comment……………and who might be winning the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER award too!    Get lotsa sleep tonight!

SEE YOU TOMORROW MORNING!!

Yes it is………..that time again!

Tomorrow at an undisclosed (that means secret!) time, there will be a post from Professor Sammy in your inbox and it will contain a PHOTOGRAPH – of a place that YOU will have to figure out!  That’s right – you need to figure out where the photo was taken……what town/city/village and what state or country as appropriate………not always an easy task!

SO, you’d best get your rest tonight………………..and study in between naps…………….because tomorrow will be here before you know it!    I’ll be here with SuzieQ and Mr. Silver Briefcase and if you aren’t here, you will be sorry because it’s YOUR chance to win one of my newly designed, freshly minted, absolutely STUNNING, badges as you can see below!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

See what I mean?   I’m just PAWSITIVE you want one of these or maybe more than one!   You could be the FIRST COMMENTER on the blog AND a RIGHT GUESSER too!   WOW!

Now are you feeling fired up and ready for tomorrow?   I hope so……..I’m ready.   Of course I have the easy part – presenting the photo for you to agonize over.   YOU have the tough part – figuring out where it was taken.   Hope you’re up for the challenge.

SO, until tomorrow morning???

TEASER-PRETEASEMONDAY

That’s right – I – Professor Sammy – have spent my week looking for just the right photo to drive you nuts show you tomorrow to test your geography skills and I do believe I have a goodie.  Yep – I do believe I do.   It will be a GUEST TEASER……………..You’ll have to wait until the Tell All Wednesday to find out WHO sent us the photo but I do think you’ll like it!

Remember that tomorrow’s blog post will be sent out from my computer to yours at a time WE pick – not the usual time.    It will land in your inbox when it’s good and ready to and not when my “daily posts” come out.   SO be ready…………..if you comment FIRST you get this!

TEASERBADGESUMMER16-1

Remember kids, that for purposes of determining FIRST COMMENTER, if more than one of you comments during a given minute, you will EACH get the badge!    We don’t count the seconds – just the minute – so we DO have two or three or sometimes FOUR way ties so just get here early and comment and you might get the freaky little FIRST COMMENTER badge!

We have other badges for FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, RIGHT GUESSER and the ever popular and always GREEN, “Loser” badge otherwise known as THE GREENIE!

Will you be here tomorrow?   I hope so……………SuzieQ, our official Teaser Cheerleader will hopefully come up with something “printable” for her cheer.   She dances on the edge of insanity as most of you who follow me know – so tune in and see how she does.

Have a TERRIFIC Monday – and study!    Got it?   OK!

Now, let’s ask our friendly (at least we HOPE today she’s friendly) neighborhood Teaser Cheerleader, SuzieQ, to come on to the front of the class and give us one of her inspiring cheers so you’ll be READY to take a whack at the Teaser today – OK?

Tuesday's my day of the week Right guessers are what I seek Don't sit there like a geek I might just give you a peek Or give your nose a tweak The Teaser is NOT Greek So where was the photo taken? Don't know?  My heart is breakin' ! Don't cause me any stress C'MON MAKE A GUESS!
