Teaser Tell All

48

Welcome to Tell All Class Students!

Shall we begin at the beginning?   Usually a good place to start right?     First of all we had ONE and ONLY ONE “FIRST COMMENTER” yesterday morning.   How about that?    Actually it was almost SIX minutes before anybody commented as we posted EARLY for a surprise.    Who was that lucky student?????

Katie Isabella !

That’s right!   We are excited for beautiful Katie and are proud to present her with this FIRST COMMENTER badge………

I was the FIRST COMMENTER on Tuesday Teaser for March 20, 2018!!! WOO HOO!

Congratulations Katie – you were our EARLY BIRD this morning……………………..

What? You mean I wasn’t your EARLY Bird this morning????

We did not have a GUEST TEASER yesterday either – it was one my Mom located and used and it’s one of our favorite spots.   Apparently it’s one of our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER’S favorite spots as well because he guessed it FIRST.    Before we tell you that, let’s show you the photo again:

A beautiful place athough this not a view of this town that most people would recognize.    Where is this?   Portland, Maine!    Back where the little tour boats park before going out on their little “getting to know Portland” cruises…..I think I see some fishing boats in there too but it’s a beautiful town in a beautiful state.

WHO was our lucky ducky student who guessed this FIRST?????

Da Phenny!!!!

Many of you know that Da Phenny’s “standard guess” when he hasn’t got a clue is “MAINE, USA” and this time he was right but he got the right CITY too!    YAY PHENNY this is for you:

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER for the Teaser of March 20, 2018 ! YAY MAINE!

Concatulations Phenny and Katie!

We had a couple more guess correctly and those of you who DID get one of these:

I wasn’t FIRST but I was RIGHT on the Teaser of March 20, 2018!

Were you WRONG?   Were you brave enough to guess but still incorrect?   You get a badge too – a famous GREENIE is all yours!

I guessed incorrectly but I TRIED on the Teaser of March 20, 2018!

Let’s see if the fact they only have TWO NAMES to cheer about today catches the Cheer Team in an exceptionally GOOD mood today shall we????

Oh boy what a TREAT
Pull up a chair and take a seat
Our cheer is short – no need for long
Only Two FIRSTIES we should sing a song!
Katie Isabella was first one HERE
She ought to join us for a nice cold beer!
Then came Phenny who was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER
He’s also well known for being a very snappy dresser!
We can’t believe that we lucked out this week
We’re so happy we’ll give Sarge’s cheeks a tweak!

YIKES! You’re BRAVE!

We all think you’re BRAVE!

Now for the REAL reason you are all here today – not just for the geography test but for the FOOD………………..well we wouldn’t want to disappoint you so here is Miss Dingleberry to keep you all from fainting away from hunger.    As for your Professors – we shall see you again NEXT week for more TEASING!!!

Step right up!   What’ll it be?  Chicken, shrimp, fish, fries or ALL OF THE ABOVE!!!!!

Your Professors!!

Lobsta (yes I’m saying it right)

69

All this talk about lobster lately – well maybe I should say I wasn’t the one really talking about it – a lot of YOU mentioned it in comments after the Tuesday Teaser………but I digress………talking about it has my Mom absolutely, pawsitively, DYING to go back to Maine to get some lobster.

Do you remember me sharing some photos from the trip they took there last Fall?

No wonder she wants to go back…………….all that and lobster at every single meal (not for breakfast although she would have had it then if they’d offered it!)………….I’ve never eaten lobster myself.   I do like the occasional shrimp…..and I eat a wet cat food that has crab and tuna in it so I know I like fishy stuff – – – maybe I’d like lobster too????

See?  This guy looks interested in having a bite or two.....

See? This guy looks interested in having a bite or two…..

LOBSTER2

Oh wait……this is so WRONG! It’s supposed to be the other way around!

As for “Lobsta”…….Mom says that’s kinda how they say it up north……..I say “say it any way you want to – just gimme some” !!   I’d probably even let Mom hide my pill in a chunk of claw meat !!   Hear that Mom?   Huh???

HAPPY FRIDAY

Good Morning Fans of Teasers!   Sorry you had to wait ALLLL night to get here this morning to find out if anyone guessed my Teaser correctly.   Wanna see the picture again???

TeaserNov19

In fact, it turns out that MANY of you guessed New England (without saying a state), and even MORE of you guessed Maine.  Then there were those of you who guessed a specific lighthouse in Maine.   However, early yesterday morning – almost the second my Teaser went live, there was one blogger who guessed Maine and he guessed it FIRST !!!!!   So, wanna know who it was?  NO it wasn’t Easy (yikes!)…..it was (drum roll please):

Doggy !

The Much Coveted "First Right Guesser" Award

The Much Coveted “First Right Guesser” Award

It’s all yours this week Doggy!!

Specifically, my parents were in Boothbay Harbor, Maine on a vacation when my Mom and Dad took a little boat ride around the harbor and Mom spotted this little lighthouse on Burnt Island in Boothbay Harbor.  It’s actually called “Burnt Island Light Station” and it’s a five acre island owned by the Maine Department of Marine Resources and it’s mostly an education center now.  It’s only a mile or so from Boothbay Harbor itself.  My Mom thought it was a really cute little lighthouse so snapped a photo not realizing that she’d wind up painting it one day.

Now the list of you who guessed Maine and New England is ENDLESS (hahahahaha)……so I will just trust that those of you who on that long list of Right Guessers who weren’t first, will take this humble offering to show that you were right!

The "I Guessed RIGHT!" award......!

The “I Guessed RIGHT!” award……!

And those of you who really blew it BIG TIME and didn’t know or didn’t guess right – even YOU get an award (because I’m a nice guy):

EVERYBODY’S A WINNER RIGHT??????

While I was looking online for some other lighthouse shots this morning from spots in Maine, I did find a couple of interesting things though…..check out this actual photo of a lighthouse in Maine…….

bass-harbor-0405t   AND, here’s my Mom’s painting of this same lighthouse smalltwilightcoveMaybe I should say it’s my Mom’s “artistic representation” of that particular lighthouse!!!!

She’s loved painting lighthouses like FOREVER……

So there you have it peeps – the results of a tricky BUT apparently fairly easy Teaser Tuesday.  Doggy was first but lots of you knew it was Maine.  CONCATULATIONS!!!

Happy Tell All Thursday Friends!

Catch Up Caturday

Hi Everybody!  Well, I’m home from the spa, and Mom and Dad are home from Maine.  They had a wonderful time – as you saw this week I had a pretty good time too but I was VERY happy when my parents came to bring me home from the spa.  VERY……..

I thought you might enjoy seeing where my Mom and Dad were and a few of the bazillion photos Mom took.  Give her a camera and she goes nuts….what can I say?    Of course you know that while you’re enjoying the photos, the bacon is cooking in the kitchen and we’ll be having our usual CATURDAY WITH BACON!!!  WOO HOO!!!!

Now – BRING ON THE BACON!!!!

Happy Caturday everybody………………..and I hope you remember to hug your humans today – remind them how much you love them !

Howdeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

Gosh I thought maybe – just maybe – I had everyone fooled again this week with my Tuesday Teaser but NOPE – I did NOT.  Want a “refresher” as to what I showed for photos yesterday????  Then I’ll give you the scoop.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So where were my parents on this particular vacation?  Hmmmm?   One thing is for sure – it was a beautiful day when Mom took these photos don’t you think in addition to a pretty place?  Well, they were in Ogunquit, Maine in the US of A at The Cliffside Inn.  They were in a part of the place that was built out on the rocks very close to the water so at night they could have the patio doors open onto their balcony and listen to the ocean smashing up on the rocks.   They were there in September too – about this time of the year.

Wanna know now WHO was the “FIRST RIGHT GUESSER” of the Teaser?   It was my buddy Nerissa from Nerissa’s Life !   He guessed it was Maine and he was right.  I had some folks who guessed New England and then all kinds of other guesses all over the globe BUT it was Maine.  WOOT WOOT NISSY!   This is yours:

Thanks to everyone who guessed and even those of you who didn’t guess but tune in on Tuesdays just to “sightsee” with me.  FYI, my parents are going back to this same place in Maine next month for a bit of a quick getaway.   Some places deserve a second visit !!

Now just in case you’ve been living on another planet and aren’t aware – my friend Mollie has added a BUNCH of incredibly fabulous STUFF to her online store.  She sure has.  Really unique things you won’t find anywhere else and all of them handmade by Mollie and her Mom (I don’t think Alfie helps out much – I think he’s just in charge of napping).   Please take a minute and visit the stores (she has TWO stores – one for those of us on THIS side of the pond and one for those who are on HER side of the pond).  Under her blog header you’ll see separate links for each store.   I have a house full of “Mollie Stuff” and love everything – SO WILL YOU!!  Click the photo to go!

Here's Mollie - ready to give you a ride to her store in the Mollie-Mobile!!!!  CLICK here to pop over and shop! Mollie's coming to camp!
