Teaser Tell All AND More…..


Class Is In Session!

(Looks Like SHOW AND TELL Day To Me!)

Hello Class!

Good Morning Professor Sammy!

We get to find out the scoop on yesterday’s Teaser this morning.   I just KNOW you’re all dying to find out WHO our Guest Teaser was, WHERE the photo was taken, and of course WHO won badges this week right?

Yes Professor Sammy!

OK then let’s get to it.    First of all, I believe we should say that the FIRST PERSON to comment yesterday commented two minutes after we went live……..I’m only mentioning that because I think it was the FIRST TIME EVER someone wasn’t there the second we went live!    But the first one to get here yesterday was (wait for it……):

Miss Pix !!!   Here’s her BLOG

YAY Miss Pix – you win this:

Now for the Teaser info………………it was a Guest Teaser, and our “Guest” was my cat friend Gracie and her Mom Miss Stephanie from HERE and it was a photo that a friend of Miss Stephanie said we could use for a Teaser…….here it is one more time for you to see!

This photo was taken on the streets of Milan, Italy…………and I am embarrassed to say that a few of you noticed something Mom and I had NOT noticed which is there’s an Italian flag on one of the buildings along the street which was a bit of a “hint” we didn’t even know we had!     It’s a pretty photo though isn’t it?   Colorful and interesting too!

So WHO guessed it first?

Miss Csilla from HERE

Wahooooo Miss Csilla – you win this:

Know what else?    There were several MORE of you who guessed Milan, Italy – lots of you noticed that flag and knew about the trams, etc. and guessed it right so those of you who did get this:

If you didn’t guess correctly – don’t feel bad – at least you stuck your toes in the water (hahaha) and guessed and for that effort, you all get the GREENIE!!!

Another SUCCESSFUL Teaser Tuesday bites the dust!

What do you say to a bit of a celebration with a cheer from our fluffy Cheerleader SuzieQ????   Oh yeah – before we call her in for a cheer, let me show you a photo I have of her when she’s angry – remember yesterday she said in her cheer something about not making her HUFFY because she’d get FLUFFY?    Some of you said you’d like to see her fluffy……are you ready for this – Don’t tell her I showed you this or she’s liable to get VERY fluffy OK?????????

See what I mean?   Kinda freaky huh?   OK – now remember – nobody tells her we showed her fluffiness right?

Settle down class…..here she comes……Shhhhhh!

Here I am cute as can be
Wigglin’ my buns for you for free
I don’t get paid to be here to cheer
But once in a while I can sneak a cold beer
Miss Pix commented first so good for you!
Miss Csilla guessed right first so let’s cheer for her too!
Next week we’ll get TOUGH I know we will
Cuz I know who our Guest is but that info I won’t “spill” !!

Thank you Suzie!   We may not pay you but we know how much you love to show off so you make a PERFECT cheerleader for our Teasers every week!    Let’s give her a hand class!

Assistant Prof Teddy and I will see you next week same time and place right?   Right!   It’s a DATE!  

Class Dismissed!

Professor Angel Sammy and Assistant Prof Teddy

AND NOW for something completely different!     Some of you may remember that we have been hosting that world-traveling rock-n-roller ROCK boy Bashful from the Hotel Thompson where Bacon lives (HERE).    He’s been here a while but we were enjoying his visit so much that we were happy that he wanted to stay here and REST UP a bit before continuing his world travels.   He’s been just about EVERYWHERE and actually had been here to visit Angel Sammy before he was an Angel.

This time while he was here we concentrated on letting him get some REST and just “take it easy”…………We already showed you a couple of pix from his first days here but we’ll show you again in case you forgot.    The first thing he did when he arrived was visit Angel Sammy’s little memorial in Mom’s room:

That first night he was here, he slept in the guest room bed…….nice and cozy…….and took some books to bed with him to read – he was so tired it took him the whole rest of his visit to read them all!

Once in a while we’ve seen him curl up with a blankie and even take an extra nap during the day……..I’m telling you this was one POOPED rock when he got here!

When we took him shopping to make sure we had on hand some of his favorite foodables, guess what he headed for first:

Yep – Guinness……a rock-sized bottle of the stuff!

He also developed a fondness for another Virginia specialty – Virginia Diner Old Bay seasoned peanuts!

We couldn’t blame him – they are delish!

Teddy had a lot of fun getting to know him………..

Teddy showed him an “alternative” bed in the guest room that he might like to try out but Bashful thought it was a bit too FEMININE for a manly rock like him (we agree!):

Bashful thought Teddy’s Cat Scouts Trophy for his winning several categories in the Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby race this year was rather impressive!!!

Every time Mom and Dad had a little road trip or expedition scheduled and invited Bashful to come along to sightsee, he declined – he just wanted to be with Teddy at the house – watching TV or playing games or just RELAXING.     So now that Bashful is about to head back home, we want you to know at the Hotel Thompson that he is RESTED and ready for more traveling and fun.   He has been the perfect guest and is welcome back at the Kimmell B&B any time he wants!

Bashful we’ll keep the light on inside the mini-cabin JUST for you!!!

Thanks for being our pal……..say hi to Bacon and all the gang back home for us!

Love, Angel Sammy, Teddy and Mom

Teaser Tell All


Well!  What a Teaser!


I guess I didn’t fool many of you with yesterday’s Teaser did I ?!    You know, I wasn’t sure about it because I know that those sculptures “travel” around a lot so it could be in many spots but the photo we used was just one of those spots so I thought it might “test” you to figure out which one!

Let’s thank the one who sent in our Teaser photo from yesterday shall we????    It was sent in by Gracie from GoodnessGracie – thanks for the photo Gracie and this is for you!


Now let me show you the fab photo she sent then we’ll get to the awards!

teaserdec27-2016These sculptures are in MANY places in the world, and in fact this particular one has been to three places (maybe more) but when Gracie’s Mom and Dad captures this photo, they were in front of La Scala Opera House in Milan, Italy!    YAY!

Let’s talk BADGES…………………….the first order of business today is telling you that we had only ONE Teaser First Commenter yesterday instead of a tie!    WHO was the first to comment?

Da Phenny at EasyWeimaraner – that’s who!   Seems Easy might be whispering in Phenny’s ear and helping him become a TEASER EXPERT already!

This is for you Phenny:



Gimme a P Gimme an H Gimme an E Gimme an N Gimme another N Gimme a Y..... What's it spell? PHENNY that's who! YAY Da Phenny!

Gimme a P
Gimme an H
Gimme an E
Gimme an N
Gimme another N
Gimme a Y…..
What’s it spell?
PHENNY that’s who!
YAY Da Phenny!

I do believe Phenny is gonna be a force to be reckoned with on Teasers don’t you?   This is for you little guy:


We had QUITE A FEW others who guessed Milan, Italy and if you were one of them – guess what – you get a badge too!!!


Were you WRONG?  Did you blow it?   Were you clueless on Tuesday?   Help yourself to a Greenie then!


So that’s it for 2016 Teaser gang……………….we have done all the Teasing we’re going to do this year.   Next Tuesday we’ll be starting out the Teasing Year of 2017 and I’ll try to find something suitably TOUGH for you to start the year with OK?   OK!

MEANWHILE, Happy New Year – Suzie and I will see you in 2017!


Final Teaser Hug of 2016,

Certainly……here it is!


I want to take a minute to thank my GUEST TEASER, my good friend Gracie from “Goodness Gracie” and her Mom Miss Stephanie who sent this photo of (drum roll please)……..The Church of Santa Maria delle Grazia in Milan, Italy which is where “The Last Supper” by Leonardo da Vinci was painted on the wall of the dining room in the church from 1494 until 1498!   Now that’s what I call a great wall decoration!    Here’s where you can learn a bit more about this beautiful church and the history it enfolds just CLICK HERE.    Gracie and Miss Steph, this GUEST TEASER badge is for you!

Thanks Gracie and Miss Steph!

Thanks Gracie and Miss Steph!

Now for the awards……………..my FIRST COMMENTER was the dynamic duo of Calvin and Oliver (here is their FACEBOOK page link).   BRAVO BOYS!  Here’s your badge:


Who was my FIRST RIGHT GUESSER?   Yesterday it was my good friend Kolytyi who popped up with the details first!    Flynn’s Mom ALMOST got it…..but Kolytyi had the whole guess right!  This is for you!


Did you ALSO guess correctly?   There were others of you who did and you get this badge!


Wrong again?  Clueless?  Not any idea at all?  OR maybe you just wanted another Greenie?   Here you are!


THAT WAS BRILLIANT……………..thanks for playing along with me this Tuesday………………..it’s always tons of fun to see who gets what!!!!

Now before I go, I want to acknowledge that today is Veteran’s Day…………….I have posted a post in the Tabby Cat Club (going live at 4AM Eastern Standard Time) about my Grandfather’s service in the Air Force since he’s my FAVORITE Veteran, but no matter what – I want to thank ALL veterans everywhere in the world who have served in the past or are currently serving because WE LOVE ALL OF YOU and we APPRECIATE ALL OF YOU and we HONOR ALL OF you on this day.


Thankful for all the brave

Thankful for all the brave
