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!!!!

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

Teaser Tell-All



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.

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:

The Much Coveted "First Right Guesser" Award

The Much Coveted “First Right Guesser” Award

I may have to update this blog after it goes live this morning (when Mom gets up that is to say) but for now, Nissy was the ONLY “right guesser”……….so everyone else gets THIS!!

The less coveted but lovely "I have no idea WHERE this photo is from" award......

The less coveted but lovely “I have no idea WHERE this photo is from” award……

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

The “I Guessed RIGHT!” award……!


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!

Teaser Tell All


Good Morning and Happy Tell All Wednesday!

I was surprised as many people guessed yesterday’s Teaser as did.  There were several who guessed “New England” but there were SIX of you who guessed it “right on the money” !!!

Here are the photos again:

My Mom and Dad were on a vacation that started in Boston, Massachusetts then went up to CAMDEN HARBOR, MAINE!!!  They stayed in a beautiful Inn up on a hill overlooking the harbor and Mom took these photos on two different days down on the water. 

The ones who guessed the right town and state were:




Katie and Coccolino


Hutch A Good Life

YAY!  You guys all get one of these!


Now I’m sending out a separate blog this morning to tell you ALL about my new Christmas contest so keep your eyes peeled…….you get a “Sammy Overload” this morning……..but I think you’ll have fun with the contest – look in that inbox right now!   It’s titled “Santa’s Naughty List” !

Teaser Tell-All Time!


Hey Gang!   You all did pretty darn well with yesterday’s Tuesday Teaser.  One of you got it “SPOT ON” too – guessed the town AND the state right on the money!  YAY!  Several more of you guessed either the general area,  the specific state or a different town in the right state. 

It was a group of vacation photos my Mom took while on vacation in Boothbay Harbor, Maine! 

So who guessed it PERFECTLY????  Well, the winner of a SUPER DUPER BIG SAMMY HUG for right city and state is:

Easy !   AND, just a reminder but Easy you have to promise to share this extra sized Sammy hug with your Dad who YOU said was the one who knew it was Boothbay Harbor…….!


And here’s who guessed “Maine” or “New England” which, by the way, was pretty darn good since many ports look the same all over the world!

Mollie and Alfie from Mollies Dog Treats

Sundae and her Mom Dianna at These Days of Mine

Linda at The Road Awaits Me

Texas at Texas A New York Cat

Savannah at Savannah’s Paw Tracks

Susan at Long Life Cats and Dogs

You guys all get a BIG SAMMY HUG!


By the way, in the bottom photo you can barely see my Dad standing in front of what looks like a tugboat.  Well, it IS a tugboat but it’s not a “working” tug – it’s actually permanently docked and is now a restaurant with a motel attached on the side!  Pretty cool huh?  I guess it’s still there – – – – it was in 1988!! 😀 😀 😀

So concatulations to everyone who guessed – even if you were wrong – it’s always FUN to see what everyone else guesses and also to see if you might recognize something in the photo that helps you guess right and get a HUG from yours truly! 

Happy Wednesday to everybody………and I mean EVERYBODY!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀
