Teaser Tell All


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!


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!!  


Teaser Tell All Time


Attention Class!


Good Morning!!!!

Here we all are, bright and early, so we can find out the scoop on yesterday’s Teaser photo!     Well I have news for you – we thought this would be a real STUMPER but in fact it was guessed correctly within minutes after it went live!   GO FIGURE!

First things first though………………….guess what……………..ready??

Another 4-Way Tie

Yep – believe it or not during the sixty seconds from 8:16AM until 8:17AM yesterday morning FOUR OF YOU commented making it another banner week for giving out the First Commenter Badge.   Miss Pix, Easy, the Kitties Blue, and Oliver and Calvin – congratulations to all of you for being SHARP AS A TACK and getting in there with a comment!   Each of you get one of these babies!


Then within minutes, BAM – we had our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER…………….but let’s show the photo again to refresh your memories!


Yep – a rather UNATTRACTIVE building of some sort right?  Could be anywhere right?   Well in fact it’s Fort Knox in Prospect, Maine!    The photo was taken by my friend Raz (of Friends Furever) parents who were actually staying in a hotel right across from this fort called (are you ready?) The Fort Knox Hotel.    Here is some information about this place AND the general area of Prospect and Bucksport, Maine – CLICK HERE FOR INFO    Imagine visiting FORT KNOX!!!!

This photo was sent in to us as I said by FRIENDS FUREVER – and this is to thank them for submitting this little test of our geography knowledge…………THANKS!

Thank you Friends Furever  for the fabulous TEASER photo of 8/15/2016

WHO guessed right first?   OLIVER AND CALVIN!   That’s right – their second “FIRST RIGHT GUESSER” in a month’s time.  Are they excited about that?  YOU BETCHA – here’s your award guys!


HOWEVER, a whole bunch of other students got it right as well……………….and you each get to claim that you were indeed right by showing off this badge:


Even if you were NOT right and had NO CLUE, you get a little SUMTHIN’ for it!


WELL DONE CLASS!  I’m proud of ya………yep – every single one of you whether you guessed it or not – you came to class, and you raised your hands and stood up and guessed – OR even if you didn’t guess you stayed awake in class and that deserves kudos too!

Tune in next Tuesday for another Teaser photo…………….you never know where on Planet Earth we will be – but we can guarantee you’ll have a fun time figuring it out…………


Professor Sam – at your service!!


Lobsta (yes I’m saying it right)


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?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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…..


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???



Teaser Tell All


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???


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):



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! 

Sammy (aka THE BIG TEASE)
