Teaser Tell All

Standard

Let The Tell All Begin!

Madge has larengitis so I’m here to say “TAKE A SEAT BECAUSE CLASS IS STARTING!”

 

Let’s get down to business students.    We thought that yesterday’s Teaser would be tough…….like TOUGH TOUGH……..were we right?  Nope………..we had a winner in a matter of less than a half hour!    Class – you never cease to surprise me!

We started off the Teaser competition with FIRST COMMENTER and yesterday we had TWO who chimed in within the first 60 seconds……who????

Jackie and Phenny

Miss Jackie and Da Phenny – you each get one of these!!!!!  Concatulations!

Two of us were FIRST COMMENTERS on the Teaser of Jan. 16, 2018 – Da Phenny and Miss Jackie!!

Here are the two Teaser photos we showed you………………

These great photos were sent in by our GUEST TEASER yesterday – Miss Csilla from KOLYTYI !    Thank you Csilla!!!!!

For Miss Csilla for being our GUEST TEASER on January 16, 2018

Where were these photos taken?    They were taken from the CLOCK TOWER in the Musee’ d’Orsay in Paris, France.    If you study the “out the window” shot you might see some familiar looking architectural styles – very Parisian, Oui?    If you aren’t familiar with this wonderful museum, it’s right on the Seine in the middle of Paris and contains an AMAZING collection of fabulous things – Csilla sent this video which you may enjoy taking a peek at……it’s like a tour of the museum!    Thank you so much Csilla – my Mom and Dad have been to Paris TWICE and never had a chance to see this museum but you can bet they will try if they ever get to go back!

So WHO was our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER???????

DA PHENNY!

YAY!!!!!! WAHOO FOR DA PHENNY!

Obviously the family of Da Phenny was ALERT and on the ball yesterday when the Teaser photo popped up because it wasn’t long before they guessed it!    This is for you:

For Being FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of Jan. 16, 2018!

We had some other folks who guessed it right too – if you were one of those lucky peeps, help yourself to one of these to show off!

I knew the TEASER on Jan. 16, 2018 but I wasn’t FIRST to guess….oh well…..!

And if you were clueless or wrong……..you get a GREENIE!

I guessed WRONG on the Teaser of Jan. 16, 2018 but I got a GREENIE anyway!

Now our fabulous cheerleading team will memorialize this moment for you winners (and losers) with a cheer – take it away girls!

Yesterday we had a Teaser
That certainly was a real crowd pleaser
Miss Jackie and Da Phenny both commented FIRST
Everyone else must have been cursed!
Then back came Phenny ready for a fight –
He was the very first one to GUESS THE PHOTO RIGHT!
It was in Paris in the Musee d’Orsay’s old clock tower
He got that right – he must have SUPER POWER!
Phenny won TWICE so he got more than one badge!
The rest of you get screamed at by Miss Madge!

Thanks ladies – that was inspiring to say the least……………..who knows – next Tuesday YOU might know the Teaser and YOU might get your name into one of the team’s fabulous cheers!!

I promise to study super hard Professors so I can win something next week!

Me too although I might have a gig in Vegas next week doing my Elvis impression so might not be in class…..

And I’m going with him as his personal drummer!!!!

Elvis? Groovy!

Well we will see you next week in class everyone………………thank you for paying attention in class today.   We only had one sleeper and I do believe Sarge took care of him.

WAKE UP!!!!!!

ZZZZZZZZZZZ

 

Professors Sammy and Teddy (at your service!)

Teaser Tell All Time!

Standard

Welcome Back Class!

HELLO CLASS!!!!

Professor Sammy calls class to order!!

Hello Class………….we sure had a swell Teaser yesterday didn’t we?     Several of you noticed something about the photo though – – – – and while some of YOU noticed, my Mom didn’t – (lack of sleep) – and that was the fact we used this photo for my Teaser in MARCH OF THIS YEAR!!!!!    That’s right – it was a repeat and YOU knew that but Mom and I didn’t when we posted it yesterday.   Talk about DUH – well we were both saying “DUH” !    However, we did fool a lot of you anyway…………….so let’s get down to business.

FIRST of all, we had a tie for FIRST COMMENTER!    Our wonderful friend Miss Annie from Animal Couriers AND friends Calvin&Oliver !!    Concatulations to both of you and here’s your REWARD for being awake at 7:30AM yesterday when we went LIVE………………you BOTH get one of these:

TEASERBADGESUMMER16-1

Now, before I tell you who guessed right first…….let me show you the photo again (I bet I can’t get away with using this a THIRD time!):

TEASERAUG23-2016

Yep – there it is…………all those people are looking out over the city of Paris, France!    They are on a hill where Sacre Coeur is up in Montmartre and it was a rainy day in September, 1990.    Just out of sight and not captured in this photo you would have seen the Eiffel Tower and that would have been a giveaway!    Many of you knew this AND as I said a few of you recognized it as a repeat Teaser…………and a LOT of you guessed Paris!    BUT only one of you was first – – – – wanna know who?????

This badge is for you Miss Csilla (kolytyi) – Let’s hear it for Miss Csilla!

TEASERBADGESUMMER16-2

YAY!!!!!!!!!

YAY!!!!!!!!!

BUT as I said, a lot of you guessed Paris and all of you who did, will get a RIGHT GUESSER badge………………..

TEASERBADGESUMMER16-3

AND, if you were NOT right, you will still be the owner of one of these lovely GREENIES !

TEASERBADGESUMMER16-4

As a special treat, we brought SuzieQ back for a Tell All Cheer…………..

Csilla, Csilla, good for you! You guessed right - wahoo for you! Paris, France is a pretty city Lots of "parlais vous Francais" kitties! Naked humans at the Moulin Rouge... Corner bars for a shot of booze... Eiffel Tower WAY UP HIGH Like a diamond in the sky (oops.....wrong song....that's Twinkle Twinkle little star isn't it........eeeek). I guess I'll go - I'll see you next week And maybe next Tuesday I can give your nose a TWEAK!

Csilla, Csilla, good for you!
You guessed right –  BIG Wahoo!
Paris, France is a pretty city
Lots of “parlais vous Francais” kitties!
Naked humans at the Moulin Rouge…
Corner bars for a shot of booze…
Eiffel Tower WAY UP HIGH
Like a diamond in the sky
(oops…..wrong song….that’s Twinkle Twinkle little star isn’t it……..eeeek).
I guess I’ll go – I’ll see you next week
And maybe next Tuesday I can give your nose a TWEAK!

Thanks Suzie…….why don’t you go find a nice corner to practice in!

So next week I can definitely tell you that the Teaser photo will not be Paris, France…………………..and I can also tell you that it WILL be a GUEST TEASER so stay tuned and study between now and next week…………………………OR ELSE!

Professor Sam, I am !

YOWZA! 

It’s time to break it down peeps!  

Give you the scoop!   

Tell you who did what!

TEASERTELLALL

It was a pretty darn good Teaser, even if the photo started out pretty smallish (made it tougher yes?) but Mom eventually was able to make it LARGER (not that it really helped with those of you guessing but at least we TRIED!).  

So let’s spill the scoop on yesterday’s Teaser………………………shall we start things off with a cheer?   Oh SUZIE???????????????????

Bim Bam Boom Gimme some room My pom poms need space To get in your face Let's see who was a winner AND who was late for dinner! RAH RAH RAH

Bim Bam Boom
Gimme some room
My pom poms need space
To get in your face
Let’s see who was a winner
AND who was late for dinner!
RAH RAH RAH

As usual, a stirring performance of a cheer that we’re not sure makes any sense!

Mr. Briefcase – if you’d bring it on???

Your wish is my command!

Your wish is my command!

TEASERMARCH15-2016-2

Yep – that’s a doozy alright…………could be anywhere……..however, Mom and Dad can tell you PRECISELY where it is because Mom took the photo!    She took it from the vantage point of Sacre Coeur in Montmartre, overlooking PARIS, FRANCE!    If she turned around, she’d be facing Sacre Coeur!  

SO, who were yesterday’s winners?????

FIRST COMMENTER:

Miss Annie at Animal Couriers

Go ahead Mom – surround me with bacon!!!

Excuse me if I make this blog SHORT – bacon is waiting for me AND I have a ton of stuff to do before the trip to Paris starts at Cat Scouts…………time is flying by……….Mom insisted on housecleaning and plant shopping yesterday instead of photoshopping for ME!    How embarrassing!    I think I should get EXTRA bacon don’t you???

I would even dress up like THIS for bacon !!!!

Housecleaning…….I mean is it ABSOLUTELY necessary Mom?   Totally?   Just you, me and Dad live here and how much mess can we make???   I might leave my furs here and there but I think you and Dad shed too – I hear both of you complaining about how thin your hair is so  hey –  all of us lose some of our furs right?   Well, I promise to stay out of the way – it’s the LEAST I can do!

Sam napping in the guest room

Staying out of the way!

Yesterday we had a return to winter – well maybe not winter but COLD anyway with a high of (gulp) 49 after having some days in the 70s and the hope of real live SPRING.   Kind of a cruel joke, Mother Nature…..and we don’t appreciate it much.   We thought Spring was here……then you snatched it right out from under us!

Mother Nature, didn't you read the sign????????

Mother Nature, didn’t you read the sign????????

Next week I think my Mom and Dad will be  mulching the gardens with last year’s  ground up leaf mulch.   Now THAT will be exciting – especially for Mom because SHE drives the lawn tractor and I think that she loves doing THAT almost as much as she loves me (I said almost!).

Sort of Spring....pre-mulching

Sort of Spring….pre-mulching

Other than that stuff, things  will be quiet around here this weekend……………which is fine with me because NEXT weekend Mom will be attached to the computer  the whole weekend.   My Cat Scouts Travel Service group that I’m the Tour Director of is having a weekend trip to Paris.   Fun huh?   It will be – we’ll go on the Cat Scouts jet ( haha) and  will be in Paris in about 10 minutes time…………..then I’ve arranged for us all to hang-glide off the Eiffel Tower (I KNOW the right people!) – and have a dinner cruise on a fancy boat  that night on the Seine and we’ll visit Versailles and the Louvre  then fly back home on Sunday.   Amazing what you can do  in cyberspace isn’t it?   Cat Scouts is tons of fun – if you’re a cat  and have time on your paws, consider joining!   Make sure and join MY Troop – The Wildcats……!!!!

Oohhhhh la la!

Oohhhhh la la!

Have a super Friday everybody……………I will – at least I will after the monster goes back in the closet!

Hugs, Monsieur Sammy

Teaser Tell All

Standard

So I promised to TELL ALL, and I’m here to do just that!

Golly a lot of you guessed Holland or Amsterdam, some guessed the Rhine, and then again a LOT of you guessed the Seine………..here’s the photo one last time!

kim3-022

Where was it?  Well it was on the Seine River right smack through Paris, France!    My Mom and Dad were on their HONEYMOON (a million years ago) and Mom snapped this from one of the tour boats on the river!

Wanna know WHO guessed the Seine first?  Hmm?   It was Miss Annie of Animal Couriers!!  WOO HOO!!  Concatulations Miss Annie……..and this little gem is ALL for you:

TuesdayTeaserFirst

But as I said, there were bunches of you who knew it was the Seine River through Paris and I’m VERY proud of all of you too……………so proud that I’m giving you the much coveted Sammy Hug I Knew The Teaser award:

TeaserHugPoster

Those of you who were off base – out in the woods – up the creek without a paddle – clueless – even you get a little something for your effort:

TeaserBoobyPrize

Now, may I give you yet another reminder (YES THIS IS FOR REAL) that NEXT Tuesday there will NOT be a Tuesday Teaser……………however you need to show up here ANYWAY because there will be three voting polls for you to agonize over so that will be more fun than the old Teaser anyway.   Doesn’t matter if you’re going on the moon trip or not you get to vote.  OK?  OK!

Just to let you know, my Mom isn’t the only “chaperone” going on this little trip of ours…………….my girlcatfriend Sundae’s Mom Miss Dianna who is a super good friend of my Mom is coming along to chaperone too.  There are so many of us going on this trip, it will take two HUMANS to keep track of us and make sure we have every little thing our hearts desire.  How’s that for service?????   And if we need something that’s not on the moon, we’ll contact Nylablue and her Mom who are going to be here on Earth at Mission Control and they’ll send up the little supply rocket with whatever we need.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This truly is a FIRST CLASS trip to the Moon gang……………..and it’s gonna be a lot of fun.  I promise you that!

So until tomorrow – good old Thursday – I’ll say a fond farewell……………I’m feeling Springy this afternoon because it’s SIXTY DEGREES here and my snow is finally melting!

It's MEEEEELLLLTING!

It’s MEEEEELLLLTING!

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!  

Just call me “Bye Bye Snow Sammy” ! 

WOO HOO
