Teaser Tell All Time!

Standard

You know what today is – it’s TELLING IT LIKE IT IS day!

Have a seat – pull up a desk and we’ll tell you ALLLLLLLLLLLL about the photo from yesterday.

I can tell you I’m upset about the Teaser – I worked ALL DAY trying to figure it out!

We’ll put you out of your misery…………but first let’s tell you who was FIRST COMMENTER……………….

Sound the Celebration Horns!

First Commenter yesterday was:

Phenny/Nelly and The Mama

BRAVO FOR YOU AND YOU GET THIS LITTLE GOODIE:

YAY! We were the FIRST COMMENTERS on the Teaser of April 23, 2019! Good for us!

Yes indeed – you were first to arrive in the classroom and then all of us WAITED…………………………….and WAITED………………………………..and WAITED SOME MORE for somebody to guess the Teaser photo correctly.    Did they?   Well, as of yesterday evening NO.     However, our Graphics Department will get up extra early (yawn yawn) and double/triple check to see if someone figured it out after we scheduled the Teaser Tell All post……….BUT if you’re reading this NOW, then it means nobody got it!   We fooled EVERYONE with this photo:

This is a photo of the beautiful blue roof of Apia Catholic Cathedral in Apia, Western Samoa!!    It was truly a tough Teaser we admit that but we do NOT often fool everyone do we………………Here’s a link to some info about this group of islands – they haven’t had it easy!   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apia

It’s a pretty place though – or at least much of it is.   They are also renovating the Cathedral now and we’re guessing that roof is NEW…….matches the sky though doesn’t it.

So what that means (if nobody guessed it) is that it’s a good thing we have SEVERAL CRATES of Greenies to hand out today and if you tried to figure this one out but couldn’t, PLEASE take one with our compliments!

Darn! The Teaser of April 23, 2019 fooled me so I didn’t guess it correctly BUT I still get this GREENIE to add to my collection of Teaser souvenirs!

I’m so upset I’m going to eat this fake tree!

You’re eating a tree and I’m eating leaves…….

Alright everyone calm down.    We need a CHEER to cheer us up then we’ll head to the cafeteria where a good lunch will make you forget about not knowing the Teaser.  I’m SURE of it!

We’d never believe it if we didn’t know it was true
But not a soul guessed the Teaser and you’re all feeling blue
We’re sorry nobody guessed it but it coulda been worse
Somebody could have snuck into class and taken your purse!
Now wipe that frown off your face and let’s go eat
You’d better hurry up before there’s no more seats!
There’s always next week and you might win
Or at the very least you might squeeze out a grin!

Thanks girls – maybe everyone feels better – after all it’s a RARE occasion when nobody gets the Teaser.

Hey Man…..I’m…like….
TOTALLY hungry!

Sorry you all are disappointed today about the Teaser but next week I’m sure someone will guess it right!  In the meantime, console yourself with food…………that always helps!

Never fear – next week we’ll be HERE!!!!

Teaser Tuesday

Standard

Welcome To Class Students!

Please have a seat – class is about to begin!

Move it!

Today we have our weekly test………….we will see just how well you can investigate a couple of photos and figure out WHERE those photos were taken!   BUT first we want you to COMMENT on this post ASAP – why?   So you can win this!

The first commenter on this blog post will win the above badge – you know you want it so comment and hurry back to your desk…………make sure you look at the seat before sitting down though  because there might be a blob of ink, or a dead mouse, or a puddle of water on it – you know how your fellow students like to TEASE!

OK – everybody back?  We’ll tell you tomorrow who was FIRST to comment.

Wait….what?…..did I sleep through the first comment thing? DARN!

We’re about to post a couple of photos for you to study and want to remind you of the CLASS RULES first – ready?

  1. You must tell us in what TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE and what STATE (if in the USA) or COUNTRY (if not in the USA) the photos were taken.   Can’t just guess one or the other – to be RIGHT you must guess BOTH.
  2. We ask that you NOT use Google Image Search to figure out where these photos were taken – that’s the EASY WAY OUT and we want this to be a challenge – you do too right?  I mean who doesn’t like a challenge?!?!    Just do your best…….take a look – see if there are clues – then GO FOR IT………..it’s way more fun that way!

Tomorrow well have our TELL ALL POST and we’ll announce the winners of these FABULOUS badges:

FOR THE FIRST RIGHT GUESSER:

FOR ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE WHO GUESS RIGHT BUT AREN’T FIRST:

FOR EVERYONE WHO GUESSES WRONG BUT TRIED:

Before we bring Mr. Silver Briefcase and unlock the briefcase holding the TEASER PHOTOS of the week which he’s been guarding day and night since last week, let’s bring Suzie out for a cheer – wanna?  Yeah let’s !

I hope your brains are wide awake
You know the Teaser and what’s at stake
Cool badges we do give away
But you’ve gotta try hard if you want to play
Fire up those batteries in your brain
I hope it didn’t get soggy in the pouring rain!
If you’re right you’ll be in my cheer tomorrow
The rest of you will wallow in your pain and sorrow
So let’s get guessing, time’s running out
Only big babies would sit there and pout!
Study the photos looking for clues
Then you won’t weep tomorrow from the TEASER BLUES!

Alright Suzie!   That ought to get everyone to put on their thinking caps!!!

Now let’s bring in Mr. Silver Briefcase with today’s TWO Teaser photos!!!

Here’s this week’s photos Professor!

Alright students – get to work………………where were these two photos taken?    Don’t let them fool you – we know there are a bazillion spots on the globe these could have been taken but your challenge is to figure out the RIGHT SPOT!!!!

GOOD LUCK!!!!

Don’t let this be YOU!!!!!!

TEASERBANNER

Hello Teaser Fans…………before we get down to business, I want to give a special “shout out” and ask for lots of prayers for our good friend and King of Teaser’s Easy’s Dad Mr. Mark.  Mr. Mark had a horrible fall in his house and injured his head and his arm badly – had 27 staples in his head and some serious work done on his arm and as of the last update, he is recovering from his “repairs” but certainly is not out of danger……..hoping to maybe even come home today or tomorrow though.   It is a very bad and scary time for Easy and his Mom………….please send them tons of purrs and POTP.   They need it!   Just click the beautiful “badge” that Miss Ann of Zoolatry did for Easy………..it will take you to his blog.   Thanks everybody!

EASYDADPOSTER

Now on to the Teaser for today!   I said it would be a tough one – well, I’m not sure it is……..but I’ll leave it up to you.  It’s not a GUEST Teaser either………….my Dad found these in the photo box and I scanned them in and VOILA – today’s Teaser which is actually THREE photos.   Take a peek, see what you think and tell me WHERE these were taken – state/country/town if you can OK?  Ready?

TEASERAUG25-2015-2 TEASERAUG25-2015

Now – remember, if you’re FIRST to comment on today’s blog (and you don’t even have to GUESS, just COMMENT) you will earn yourself one of these beauties:

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

YAY!  It’s time again for the Tuesday Teaser………..well, I say it’s time and hopefully you didn’t go nuts trying to SEE the Teaser since it wasn’t delivered to you at the usual TIME!   This is the NEW time…………..6AM Eastern Standard Time so more of you can see it and have a shot at the “First Right Guesser” award!

Now as you recall, today’s Teaser is a GUEST Teaser.  Our Guest went to this place and took lots of photos but there are TWO we’ve using for the Teaser and here they are.  Clean off those screens and eyeglasses and take a peek because I don’t think you’ll find a whole lot of clues…………..

SO, everybody wins right?  Remember to get your guesses to me today because tomorrow at 3AM Eastern Standard Time (the USUAL blog delivery time) you’ll find out who wins what OK?

Meanwhile, yesterday was a super busy day – birthdays, gotcha days, all kinds of pawties and some good news and bad news.  In other words, it was another regular/normal day in Blogville.  The whole thing is that we do what we can to help each other when we can and congratulate each other on the victories and hug each other through the sadness right?  Our community is wonderful about that.

Tomorrow my Mom is going to be gone from home almost all day but she’ll be checking in at least once from my Aunt Carol’s house in West Virginia.  Mom is visiting her because it’s my Auntie Carol’s birthday tomorrow!   She’ll pop on Auntie Carol’s computer to respond to comments on my bloggy though – after all, these big old paws of mine get stuck in the holes between keys on the keyboard sometimes and I depend on Mom to help me………..what would we do without our humans huh?   I don’t want to know.

Have a super day gang and Happy Guessing on the Teaser…………..good luck to everybody and I hope having changed the time on Tuesdays for my blog to appear will help everybody to think everything is fair and square.

LOVE clean sheets!!

Teaser Tell-All

Standard

Hi Teaser Buddies!

Well, I didn’t really have many of you fooled this week when it came to WHO did our Guest Teaser did I ??  Anyone who has followed Michelle from My Three Moggies as she traveled throughout China and Japan knows there are some incredible sights to see and she captured a bunch of them for US !  We were so lucky she wanted to give all of us some extra fun with Teasers by snapping photos and doing Video Tell-Alls so you can see some of the places she’s been.  She had a wonderful trip and is home now with Oscar, Archie and Henry who were VERY happy to have their Mum back home.

Now – ONWARD to Teaser Tell All…………….

TEASER #1 – Here’s the photo one last time:

mysteryphoto2

What a lot of “CREATIVE” answers you gave me!   There were a lot of people who recognized it though for just what it is a photo of……………….however I’ll let Michelle tell you in this video!

Here’s some detail on where Michelle is standing and what you’re seeing that she provided to us as well:

Here you have the tallest Japanese tower called Sky tower which will be
celebrating its first birthday in May.  The building in the middle is the Asahi
building the famous beer from Japan hence the frothy head on the top :-).  The
statue on right is meant to face up originally however due to earthquakes the
Japanese decided to upset the artist and put it on its side!

Teaser #2 – Here’s the photo one last time:

Teaser Two

I got a few really INTERESTING answers on this one too (tee hee)……………but here’s Michelle’s video with the info on where she took this photo!

Isn’t that fun?  There are a LOT of Cat Cafes in Japan …… Mom and I have seen a lot of them on the Japanese channel on the International TV station we get here and we think it’s so great that these places exist where people and cats can hang out together.   Here’s some info I found on the Purina site about cat cafes!

The customers of cat cafés are often young working people who don’t have the time or the space for a cat, but who still want to experience the joy of interacting with pets. “This place isn’t on my way from work, but even if I’m pretty tired, I’d still stop by,” one cat café regular, Kazunori Hamanaka, told Reuters. “It is really soothing.” Many customers come often, and have favorite cats that they spend time with, almost like their own pets. Taking photos of the cats is a popular pastime, and several customers have devoted blogs just to their cat café photography collections.

Cat cafés in Tokyo charge between 1000 and 1200 yen (between about $13 and $15 dollars) an hour to spend time in the cat room. They often provide food and drink service, cameras, music, and even video games, though many customers simply bring books to read while they sit quietly with the cats.

I’m sure the cats in the café reminded Michelle of her three moggies who were very patiently waiting for her return and since she was missing her guys, this gave her a chance to experience some LOVE from some Japanese kitties.

Wasn’t that FUN?  If you don’t know Michelle and her boys, you really should visit them at My Three Moggies.   We are EVER so grateful to her for these past two weeks worth of great photos and wonderful Tell-All videos…………………..

A Very Special Hug for Miss Michelle From Sammy !!

I suppose you’d like to know who guessed RIGHT on the Teasers?  If you did guess right and your name isn’t on the list – it’s only because I did this blog Tuesday evening so if your answer came in AFTER I wrote my blog – TRUST ME – I’ll add your name to the list in the morning I PROMISE  (as soon as my Mom/Typist wakes up of course)!

My Monday

Standard

It’s the day after Mom’s Day and we’re just hanging out at my house………..Mom spent yesterday doing stuff like buying plants and planting them in the yard (with my snoopervision of course), doing two loads of laundry (hey – if she wants to celebrate Mom’s day by doing Mom stuff it’s OK with me!)……..and uploading the cover of her book to my blog with a link to Kindle for those of you who have a Kindle and wanna read a fabulous book (yes of course I’m prejudiced).    The cover art is my Mom’s painting of an old covered bridge.  Anyway, if you look to the RIGHT here on my blog you’ll see this cover and if you click on it you go to Amazon/Kindle – isn’t she clever?????  YAY MOM!!!!!

DavidsBridgeCover1

Dad napped.   I think he got worn out watching Mom work.  😀 😀 😀

We had a nice sunny day……..and I visited lots of great blogs by those of you who blogged about Mother’s Day – so many sweet posts – obviously you feel like I do about the “human who takes care of us” in our lives.  YAY!

Today Mom’s going to get the surprise packages ready to send out to the winners of my blogaversary competitions – I hope it doesn’t take a bazillion years for them to arrive at their destinations – you know how the mail is……I could probably deliver them faster using my hang-glider!

Sammy's new hobby - hang gliding!

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:

Easy

Misaki

Doggy

Katie and Coccolino

Mollie

Hutch A Good Life

YAY!  You guys all get one of these!

BIG SAMMY HUG!!!

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” !

WHAT IS TODAY???????

 
YAY!   So are you ready?  Remember you have all day today to take a close look at the two photos and make a wild guess.  This one is hard (I think) and I decided at the last minute to make it TWO photos instead of the usual one. 
 
See if you can pick up any clues – enlarge it by clicking if you need to – give me your best shot and tomorrow, everyone who guesses correctly will get:

A BIG SAMMY HUG!

Tomorrow I’ll not only give out hugs to the correct guessers BUT I’ll also tell you about my Christmas contest.  Oh boy! 

So, I’ll see you then??????  Have a super TUESDAY TEASER kind of day!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀 😀

The “Impossible Teaser” Tell-All

Standard

Well!  I’m here to confess that this week’s Teaser was just plain too tough and it was because of how old and blurry those photos were.  Not fair of me to use them but I wanted to sneak in some photos of a “new” place that I hadn’t used before.  When I asked Mom about it she said she had some REALLY OLD photos from a trip she took many years ago and then she spent a couple of hours digging around in an old cardboard box she’s had stashed in her studio closet.   Here they are one last time:

Where did she take the photos (yes that is her in the bottom picture) ??? 

She had gone on vacation for two weeks to Puerto Rico!   The place that looked like a “fort” that a couple of you mentioned was El Morro Castle in San Juan – the capital of Puerto Rico.   The other two photos were taken there as well although while Mom was visiting she traveled to all parts of the island.   She had some beach photos which really were just shots of the ocean……..they could have been ANYWHERE so we didn’t use them. 

Now, since that was practically IMPOSSIBLE to guess, I feel it’s only right and fair that every single one of you who TRIED to guess on the Teaser this week get a reward…….that’s right……..everybody gets to have one of these:

Special Big Sammy Hug!

I promise never to use forty year old photos again……..OK?  Tee Hee

Hope you had fun with it anyway even if it was “dreaming the impossible dream” to get the Teaser this week. 

Smoochies all around……………..Sammy 😀
