Teaser Tell All



Thank you all for being so prompt in reporting for Geography class today – obviously you’re ANXIOUS to hear where that photo from yesterday was taken right?   Well I won’t torture you and make you wait for long but we need to take care of business first before handing out the prizes!

Hurry up!  I wanna know who wins WHAT!

Hurry up! I wanna know who wins WHAT!

First bit of business is to tell you that this was NOT a Guest Teaser – I didn’t say if it was or wasn’t yesterday but it was NOT……..my Mom and Dad took this photo on a trip some years (like a lot of years) ago to (drum roll please)………………..NEW YORK CITY!!!!!!!!

A lot of you got it right but then I’m getting ahead of myself again……………….let’s show the photo one more time then hand out the goodies!


Mom and Dad stayed on the bazillionth floor of a hotel in downtown Manhattan and Mom THINKS (remember she’s old and her memory is dim) that they took this photo from up there…….but who knows – she could have been cruising around in a space ship for all I know!   Dad says she’s nuts – that they took it from atop the Empire State Building (where the space ship landed…hahaha).   Anyway, it’s definitely NYC!

Who was my FIRST COMMENTER?    We had TWO of them……………..came in the same time in fact……………..they were Easy (the speedy Weim) and Oliver and Calvin (my Facebook buddies)!  Both of you get THIS!

I was First Commenter on Sammy's Teaser of 6/21/16

Then we waited around watching the guesses until we finally got our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER……….who was it?    Well congratulations to Charles Huss for being FIRST !    Charles’ blog “Bad Cat Chris” is a hoot……..we love hearing the adventures of those Florida kitties!  This is for you Charles:

Several others leaped on that guess OR guessed without seeing anyone else’s guess and just plain KNEW!    All of you who did, get this!

I wasn't FIRST but I was RIGHT on the Teaser of 6/21/16

And if you guessed Boston, or Chicago, or Upper Tazmania, or Borneo, etc.  – YOU get a GREENIE – LUCKY YOU!!!!!!!   Anyone who was wrong STILL is a winner:

I didn't get the Teaser right on 6/21/16 BUT I tried!

I don’t dare ask Suzie if she’d like to give a cheer to our winners today – she’s a bit unstable (again) – so I think we’ll leave her in her padded cell cheerleading practice room this morning and simply say – we’ll hope next week she can try for “NICE” again!

Bravo class……….as usual you have made me proud.   As your Professor of Geography I like seeing that you are studying and researching which is putting you in line for a WINNER’S badge one of these weeks if you haven’t won one yet.   KEEP TRYING……………where there’s a will, there’s a way!

I'll be at my desk here in the front of the class next Monday for the Pre-Tease post....see you then!

Teaser Tell All



Good Morning Teaser Fans!

This is your buddy – the old Teaser himself – SAMMY coming to you from snowy Warrenton, Virginia (yes it actually DARED to snow again yesterday!).    I spent the day watching the snow fall and you all agonized over my Teaser photo from yesterday.  Lots of super good guesses though………AND we had several right guessers.

Before we hear about winners (and losers!!) let’s refresh our memories with the photo – shall we????????


Taken by my Mom from high atop a Manhattan hotel in the room she and my Dad stayed in on their first trip to NYC together (via train from Washington, DC) in 1989.   They went up for a 3-day excursion – managed to see the sights including a carriage ride in Central Park, go to the theater to see “42nd Street”, do a bus tour of the city with a stop in Chinatown – and even had a chance to slip into a genuine NY deli for a big fat corned beef on rye!!!    They had a fabulous time and have tons of photos but this is one of their favorites.  What a sky!   I’m sure Manhattan has changed a LOT in all these years – and while they have been back once, they sure didn’t capture a sunset sky over the city like this one again.

Who was the “FIRST RIGHT GUESSER” ???   Well it was Mollie from Mollie and Alfie !!!!    NYC it is…………so you get this fabulous award Madame Mollie:


AND, there were several more who recognized this old photo of New York City and all of you get this one:


Those who had no clue or guessed many other spots like Chicago, Richmond, Las Vegas, etc. get a big fat HUG anyway for trying and taking a flying leap of faith by guessing………..!


By the way, nobody mentioned it but just for your info, I have used this same photo before!   In an old blog post in 2012.   In fact my Mom had to make sure we removed all record of it here on WordPress because you might have found some clues embedded in the photo and tried to follow the link to the old post (not that you’d be sneaky or anything….of course…….AHEM!).

So, now that you’re aware of what’s what in the teasing department, I hope that any further teasing you involve yourself in today is with YOU doing the teasing of someone/thing else and not YOU being the victim of the tease!
