Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

Happy Monday Class!

You know what today is right???

We must get you all prepared for tomorrow’s guessing and researching but when it comes to the Teaser, that’s kind of tough since you don’t know WHERE to research since it’s a surprise right?   Well, that’s why I always tell you to study EVERYTHING………..Yep – EVERYTHING.   Tough huh?   Add to that the fact that the Teaser tomorrow is a GUEST TEASER – that makes it doubly tough.    I will have more than one photo for you to examine though.  Maybe two.

HOW IT WORKS (for those of you who are new at this Teaser thing)

The photos will be posted here on our blog in our Geography classroom tomorrow at a time that WE choose – and it’s not the usual blog post time of 3AM EST – oh no – we mix it up every week and the post goes live at a different time – that’s because there’s a prize for the FIRST COMMENTER on the post!!!  Makes it more interesting if you don’t know when it will go live.

THEN the next challenge is that after you’ve seen the photos and you’re ready to make a guess, you must give the TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE as well as the STATE (if you think it’s in the USA) or COUNTRY (if you don’t think it’s in the USA) where the photo was taken.    You can’t just give one – you must give both town/state or country.   OK?

THEN, after you’ve guessed it’s always fun to see what everyone ELSE guesses…………but make sure you don’t give anything away – if you think someone else has it right – don’t say “So and So has it right” – it makes it more of a challenge for everyone else……….We are WICKED here on Teaser Tuesdays!!!!!   We want it to be tough and we want it to be fun and most of all we hope we give you some spots in the world that you might want to visit one day to see in person.

SO – those are the rules!

Any questions?????

YES Bobby?

“Professor Sammy, I was wondering if instead of cookies for class tomorrow, can I bring Sammmmmiches?    My Mom said she’d make them for everyone!”

Oh how nice of your Mom to do that – yes Bobby – we’d be honored to nosh on your Mom’s samm – – – er – I mean Sandwiches tomorrow.   Please thank her for us!

Now, I will show you all and our visitors in class today, what the prize badges look like for the Teaser tomorrow – ready?

The First Commenter on the blog gets this:

The person who is the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER gets this:

Everyone ELSE who guesses right but isn’t FIRST, gets this:

AND, last but not least, everyone who does NOT guess correctly STILL gets a prize badge – the world famous “GREENIE” !

Now I think we’ll bring our fabulous Teaser Cheerleader, Ms. Suzie “Shakeyourtailfeather”  Q out to give us a pre-tease cheer to boost morale and provide some inspiration for you all!

Bibbidy Bobbidy Bango
I’m in the mood to tango!
The Teaser will be a whopper
So don’t be a losing flopper
Study and stay up late
Tonight’s not the night to date!
Be here ready to take a peek
At our photo of the week!
Our guest has sent us a doozy
Don’t show up in class all boozy!
Be PERFECT just like ME
Studying hard will set you free!!!!!!

Gosh Suzie…..you got all dressed up and everything – I know you got everyone’s blood pumping and brains working so tomorrow will be a great Teaser Tuesday.

My Assistant Professor Teddy and I will be here in the morning at the SECRET TIME to greet everyone as you stagger into the classroom.     Remember Bobby’s Mom is providing lunch for everyone tomorrow!

I coulda made sandwiches if you’da just asked me to!

Uhhhh…..well…..yes, I’m sure you would have and no doubt they would have been interesting sandwiches indeed (probably with a wicked spell on them!) but one of these days we’ll let you provide the eatables OK Aunt Grizelda?   Your niece Suzie will let you know!   (eeeeeeeek!)

Angel Professor Sammy and Assistant Prof Teddy

Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

Preparing for the Teaser

Yes indeed, time to get ready!

Welcome to Monday class!   Thanks for being on time today – that means Sarge is happy and if Sarge is happy we ALL are happy!    We are getting together this morning in Geography Class to prepare for tomorrow when we see the Teaser photo of the week and try and guess WHERE it was taken.    WILL YOU BE READY?

THAT IS THE QUESTION!

This week’s Teaser is a GUEST TEASER again………..history has shown us that most of the time the Guest Teasers are the TOUGHER of the Teaser photos.   That means it’s a good idea if you get plenty of rest tonight before you show up in class tomorrow morning.    So no staying up late watching scary movies or reading books after “lights out” under the covers with a flashlight.  Just get some SLEEP.

However and wherever you sleep the best, that’s where you need to be tonight.    I know Assistant Professor Teddy will be doing that right Teddy?

INDEED!!

I think we should call SuzieQ over to give the class and all our visitors a bit of a PUMP UP THE VOLUME cheer – she always gets everyone in the mood (that is if she’s not extra cranky anyway for some reason) by cheering her little heart out and getting our blood pumping so Suzie – come on in!

Tuesday is almost here!
We must face it without any fear!
The photo may really be rough
But in this class we’re quite tough!
After all these weeks of class
We feel quite full of sass!
We are used to Teasers so tough
That for others they would be too rough!
Not us though we’re ready, set, GO
So come on and BRING ON THE SHOW!!!!

Gee thanks Suzie – that was a great cheer and it had NO swear words in it, and no QUESTIONABLE or vicious statements – have you had a visit with your “counselor” this week?

Anyway, Teddy and I will remind you all that tomorrow the Teaser post will go LIVE at a time different from the usual blog post from us – it will be a SURPRISE time and it will be up to YOU to get here QUICKLY and comment because whoever is the FIRST to comment on the Teaser post will get this:

I just KNOW you want to make sure you get one of these to show off!!!!!!  

Then after that’s over and done with it’s just a matter of time before someone hopefully guesses the Teaser photo location (and that must be what CITY/TOWN the photo was taken in as well as what COUNTRY or if in the USA what STATE) – the whole thing.    You might win another badge if you are the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER or even if you aren’t first but GUESS RIGHT……and believe it or not, even if you guess WRONG you will still win something and that’s unusual these days when you WIN something for LOSING right?   Right!

Are there any questions class?

Will there be cookies tomorrow?

Well Rodney there might be.   Some of the student’s Moms occasionally bring cookies by for us and I never know ahead of time so there’s always a chance!!

Any other questions?   If not, it’s time for recess everyone.    No shoving, tripping, pushing, screaming, hitting, crying, using weapons of any kind out there on the playground – SARGE will be watching you.    Never mess with Sarge.

THAT’S RIGHT!

Angel Professor Sam and Teddy too

Remember, the early bird gets the worm! See you tomorrow when we go LIVE!

P.S.   Did you know?

Angel Nellie is having a birthday party today – she may be gone but she will never be forgotten – stop by to leave some birthday wishes for her – her brother Kozmo and little sister JoJo are throwing a birthday bash for her!

Click the above badge and you will be at the party!!   See you there – you know Nellie always LOVED a good party!

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!!!!!

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!

Isn’t this a fabulous looking place?   It’s a HOUSE…..that’s right.   It’s known as the “Mushroom House” (guess why!  hahaha) and it’s located in perinton, New York.   It’s been featured on many house/garden programs on TV and actually is CURRENTLY for sale.   Want more info on this amazing structure?    CLICK HERE    You can just google Mushroom House and a few sites will pop up that have details on the sale if you’re interested (tee hee).

Who wants to live in a bunch of mushrooms??? Not me!

Thank you for your commentary Sarge………..Ahem – where was I?   Oh yes.    Let’s talk about who was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!   It was my good friend Clowie!   That’s right – Clowie from Clowie’s Corner was the first to guess it correctly!    WAY TO GO GIRL!   This is for you:

AND a whole bunch more of you figured this one out so each of you who DID and guessed correctly will get this:

There are always a few who try valiantly to guess correctly but don’t QUITE make it and we did have some of THOSE today and you all get a little something too!

Everybody Happy???

OOPS…..well we can’t please everyone right Teddy?

HIGH FIVE ANGEL SAMMY!

BE ALERT TOMORROW – STUDY UP TONIGHT – NO SLEEpING IN CLASS!

Thank you Sarge….what would we do without you?????

I know Bobby………….We ALL are!!!!

Suzie?  Want to pump up the volume and get this lazy classroom of students ready for tomorrow’s challenge???

The Teaser is from a GUEST
Those are harder than the rest!
So you’d better hit the books
Or I’ll give you a NASTY look!
Don’t make me be a meanie
Or make me pouty and screamy
Good luck to all you Tease-buddies
Including all old fuddy-duddies!

Thanks Suzie for getting us all PURRRRRPARED for tomorrow.    Not only will we have our photo to guess but I will share some other photos too AND announce a BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT that our Assistant Professor Teddy – my little brother – has under his belt (yes I know he doesn’t wear a belt….just sayin’ )!

See You “Sometime” Tomorrow!

Angel Professor Sam…………

P.S.  (with great sadness)  

We learned that our beautiful and special friend Queen Nellie has left all of us and joined my big brother Angel Sammy at the Rainbow Bridge………..Angel Sammy was there to give her a great big hug along with all the other friends and her own family who had left before her.    She looks beautiful in her Angel Wings…….and she of course misses her Mommy most of all.   Nellie was one of a kind and will definitely live on in the blogosphere and especially our hearts FOREVER………

Farewell Angel Nellie……..You are the most beautiful Angel of all……….

Time for the Tuesday Teaser……………….are you all ready?   Awake?   Alert?

“YES PROFESSOR SAMMY”

Alright – then let’s get down to it.    FIRST of all, we have a special badge for WHOEVER is the FIRST to post a comment of any kind on THIS POST………………so if you’d like to win that badge then get busy – go comment then come right back here for the main event – go on – we’ll wait for you!!!!!!

MOVE IT MOVE IT MOVE IT!

Welcome back……………………today’s Teaser photos are very INTERESTING ones……………very.    Now for THIS Teaser, I do want to know WHERE they were taken – what area of what country or state??   If you want to take it a step further, what IS this place???    One thing for sure is that it is INTERESTING!    Now shall we have our little Cheerleader come in to cheer you on first?

Today we have a doozy
A fun one we did choosy
We have a pile of Teasers
And while they ALL are pleasers
Some are easy peasy
While others make me queasy
This one makes me dizzy
Makes my fur go frizzy
It really is kind of scary
OFF the ground makes me a bit wary!
I know travel makes us WISER
But to go here I’d need tranquilizers!

HUH?    Well that’s a bit confusing…………………..I guess we’ll have to see what you’re talking about Suzie when Mr. Silver Briefcase comes in and shows us the photos (there are two today) – step right up Sir!!!  We’re anxious to see the photo now!

Here’s the two views of this place that Suzie’s talking about…..I have to admit, it makes me dizzy too!

Two views of the same place……………………….now it’s up to you to tell ME about it!!!   Where?  City and State (if USA) or country (if not USA).

Now remember if you are FIRST to guess this one right, you get this wonderful badge:

If you’re right but not the FIRST right, you still get to proclaim your smarties with this:

AND, last but not least, if you guess but are wrong………….you get this:

Professor Sammy, my Mom made some cookies for me to bring to class today!

Oh now nice of her Bobby!  Please thank her for us will you?

I’ll get some smoothies from the cafeteria for us Professor Sam!

OK – class adjourned to the back of the room for cookies!! 

See you all tomorrow for the TELL ALL – good luck!

OK Class – what day is it?

I know – I know – I know – I know – I know……..

YES WE KNOW YOU KNOW!!!

Welcome class…….we’re getting ready for tomorrow’s photo challenge so please make sure you study up tonight…………….who knows what corner of the world we will explore tomorrow but I can tell you it will be a GUEST TEASER again…………..no worries – not as awful as MONACO was last week I promise……….really…………..truly.

Remember that whoever comments on the post tomorrow FIRST will win the FIRST COMMENTER AWARD…………..and we will WAIT a little while before announcing who wins so we don’t have to award any SAM BOO BOO badges (hahahaha) like last week so be patient…………..OK?    The post will go live at some time that’s a SECRET so don’t ask me because I can’t tell.

Now how about a little pre-tease cheer from the ever-bubbly, ever-unpredictable Suzie!??????

Tomorrow is the TEST
I promise not to jest
If you’re right you will be blessed
If you’re wrong you’ll be a mess
The photo might be hard
But I’ll send you a sympathy card
Be brave and guess away
You know I then will say
BRAVO YOU’RE OUR HERO
The rest of you are ZERO!

Oh dear………..that was one of your more “unkind” efforts Suzie but people love you even if you’re CRUEL so thank you for the cheer – crowd?  What do you think of today’s cheer?

Some of you aren’t too sure………..

But most of you approve!

On that HIGH NOTE, Class is adjourned!!

Angel Professor Sam and his sidekick Assistant Teddy

P.S.               Make sure you’re here when you get the DING on your computer/phone, etc. that there’s a post from US – because then it will be ON!!!    One of the badges might be yours!

 

 

Tuesday Teaser

Here We Go!

Please take your seats class……you know what today is!

So let me start today’s class by reminding you that whoever is the first to comment on THIS BLOG POST will win the FIRST COMMENTER badge……..sometimes we have more than one clocking in with a comment the first sixty seconds of the class but in that case, we’ll award everyone who comments in that first minute their OWN badge!  YAY!

Everybody ready?   Shall we start today’s proceedings with a reminder that in order to be FIRST RIGHT GUESSER or even a RIGHT GUESSER you will have to know your stuff.   Yep – you will have to guess with the right town/city/village AND the right state (if USA) or country (if not USA) in order to truly be RIGHT.    Part of an answer doesn’t hack it.

Let’s see if Suzie would like to start things off today………………….!

*********waiting…….waiting…….waiting*********

SUZIEQ – REPORT FOR DUTY ASAP!

Whoops – sorry Professor Sammy – I was in the little girls room and it takes a while to put this danged cheerleader’s outfit on after I DO MY THING………know what I mean?

I know what she means Professor Sammy – just thinking about Suzie’s plight makes me – well – have a NEED!

OK Bobby – hurry up and hurry back………….we seem to be having some problems jump-starting class today!!!!

tick tock tick tock

Now Bobby’s back, Suzie’s here and Sarge I believe has left the room to visit the litterbox BUT we’re going on without him…………………………..HIT IT SUZIE!

Today we’ve got a whopper
A genuine show stopper
This teaser is a doozy
And NO I’m not a floozy!
Good luck because it’s tough
The guessing is gonna be rough
Guess right you’ll be a winner
Guess wrong and you’ll be Sarge’s dinner!
(haha…..just kidding…..I think)

Thanks a bunch Suzie………………..let’s hurry up and bring in Mr. Silver Briefcase.  I’m glad Sarge was ABSENT during your cheer Suzie!

I’m here Professor Sam and Assistant Teddy…..lemme post the photo for you on the board!

WHERE WAS THIS PHOTO TAKEN?????????????

Remember you will win a badge – and you actually will get one even if you’re WRONG – the world famous Greenie Badge is for those of you who are incorrect with your guess.   Now that’s pretty cool that even losers win right???  Right!

So let’s review – I need all the info on the photo and tomorrow when you come to class I’ll let you know WHO WINS WHAT!!  

See you tomorrow class!   Assistant Professor Teddy and I wish you good luck!

The Calm Before the Tease

Yes indeed – it’s just about time for the Teaser – can you believe it’s been a whole week since we got ready for a Teaser photograph here in geography class?????    Time sure is flying by isn’t it?   Well I guess we’d better GET TO IT!

First of all, you must know that we have a GUEST TEASER tomorrow – yes and don’t groan – I know you worry about those more than if I’m using one of my own BUT think positively OK?

***GROAN***

I thought the Prof said NO GROANING!!!!!!!

Thanks Sarge.  I think you put the fear in the class and I won’t expect any further groans.   Even from Bobby who has his hand raised in the back of the class – YES BOBBY?

Sorry Professor Sammy but Sarge yelling at us made me need to use the litterbox!

You’re excused Bobby.   Remember to wash your hands please.

ANYWAY – WHERE WAS I – oh yes.   It’s a Guest Teaser photograph AND also remember that it will pop up at a DIFFERENT time from my usual daily post – it’s a surprise – that’s so we might catch everyone off guard – sneaky huh?

Also, if you are the FIRST to comment on the Teaser post – even if you don’t guess but just comment on it, you will win this:

You know you want it, so PAY ATTENTION to your computer/iPhone/iPad, WHATEVA so you see when the post arrives!

Suzie would you like to cheer everyone on for tomorrow or are you “saving yourself” for tomorrow’s class?

How about a quickie (cheer that is!)
You shouldn’t be so picky
Tomorrow I’ll do a full cheer
But today you’re lucky I’m just plain HERE!

OK – we’ll get full cheering service tomorrow – thanks Suzie.

Remember we have badges for other prizes tomorrow too associated with the Teaser AND that you must guess the name of the city/town/village as well as the country (if not in USA) or state (if in USA) where the photo was taken.    That’s right – we want the whole thing or ELSE.

Before you ask me – YES this is going to be a TOUGHIE!

So I’ll see you all back here in class bright and early-ish in the morning right?   RIGHT?

ANSWER THE PROF YOUZ GUYZ!

***RIGHT PROFESSOR SAMMY***

You can go to Study Hall now………and good luck tomorrow!   CLASS DISMISSED………
