Tuesday Teaser


Good Morning Class!


Here we are again dear class………….I see you all look wide awake and ready to have a go at the Teaser today but before we head down THAT road – remember to COMMENT on this post.   You may be the winner of one of our newly designed badges – the one for FIRST COMMENTER!    You may have to share that honor should others comment during the first 60 seconds here but hey – sharing isn’t so bad right?    Go on – hurry up – comment – then come right back for more torture fun in class today.

Wait!   Wait!  Don’t take a nap while your classmates are gone……..


Thank you Sarge……………ok – looks like everyone is back from commenting.   Let’s resume.    Today we have a GUEST TEASER for you.   Is it a toughie?  I believe it is.   It’s also an “aerial shot” meaning you can’t really look at signage or license plates or some of the usual “hints” in photos.    Just give it your best shot – and if you can, resist the temptation to use “GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH” to find out where this is – it’s SO much more fun to study the photo, the architecture or water nearby or other things that might be hints than to just locate a similar picture online in an image search.

If you make a guess remember in order to WIN First Right Guesser or Right Guesser badges you will need to say what city/town/village AND what country (if not USA) or state (if USA) the photo was taken in.    Clear?   Cool!

Before I continue I must say that Suzie called in sick today.    Yes I think she’s kind of embarrassed about her behavior yesterday when she told us about her date with the guy who runs the dog spa.   She DID promise to be here tomorrow though for the Tell All and a special TELL ALL CHEER for the winners………there’s THAT to look forward to.

Right now though, we have our “substitute cheerleader”, our own SARGE who will give us a cheer to pump you up for working on the Teaser photo – SARGE??

Trust me this ain’t easy
I’m getting kind of wheezy
Leapin’ and yellin’ and stuff
I’m feeling kinda rough
I think I hurt my back
Or I’m having a heart attack
So ‘scuze me while I STOP
Before my sweat pants POP!

Alright!  Let’s hear it for SARGE!!!!

Thank you Sarge for filling in – I’m sure Suzie will thank you in person tomorrow (or maybe not…..you know how she is!).

Let’s go ahead while you’re changing in the locker room and bring in our Camp Counselor/Forest Ranger/State Police/Security Guard guy with today’s TEASER photo and show it to you so you can start agonizing over it shall we?

Just so you know Professor Sammy, I sure won’t be a cheerleader sub for class! No way Jose’ ! Here’s the Teaser photo though…..

Study the photo class and give it your best shot!!!!  

We have brand new badges for the winners and we’ll hand them out in tomorrow’s TELL ALL!    Here’s a preview in case you missed them yesterday………..you know you want one of these right?

Bacon Caturday!


YAY!  It’s HERE!


It’s the day the bacon gets fried up……….the day Mom throws all dietary caution to the wind and we all get some delicious bacon!


Oh I don’t THINK I smell it cooking……….I KNOW I smell it cooking!!

I shared all my MEMES with you before, but some things are worth repeating right?  (like last week’s Teaser photo for instance…hahaha)

These are all from you my dear buddies and pals and I thank you for them!   I’m always on the lookout for bacon fun…………………(especially when I put it in my tummy)…..in fact, if I’m not careful, one of these days I’ll look like this from eating all this nommy bacon!


Another fun thing happened to me – Nellie said anyone who wanted to help with the campaign for Smoke and Joe could help out and she’d do an official Campaign Badge for them – – – I had NO IDEA what I could do to help but I did tell her that I would be qualified to be in charge of bacon distribution for the campaign as it travels around the country…………well guess what she sent to me!!

BACONBADGESAM-CAMPAIGNYAY!    I can put my extensive knowledge (and love) of bacon to work for me……………!!   I’m so proud to serve………….and especially to work with Nellie AND the Smoke and Joe Campaign !!!

I'll work HARD for the campaign Nellie, Smoke and Joe!!

I’ll work HARD for the campaign Nellie, Smoke and Joe!!

I hope all of you get some bacon in your life today – – – – things are just BETTER with BACON!    Happy Weekend and I’ll see you tomorrow for Sunday Selfies on The Cat On My Head blog hop!

Hugs, Sammy the Baconator

Special P.S. 

Please send POTP and purrs to my friend Flynn as he was poorly yesterday and I do worry so about my “bookend twin”…..we gingers must stick together…..he and I are on a similar journey with our health and age………I love him like a brother………


Happy 4th !



Happy July 4th !

Today is a day that we celebrate our independence……many people choose to spend the day giving thanks in church, or participating in special family get-togethers, or just taking the day to reflect on life in this great country of ours.   I’m spending it by starting off having breakfast complete with bacon along with my Mom and Dad.   We will then RELAX and enjoy each other’s company and will NOT be one of the hoards of peeps who will drive their neighbors crazy by setting off fireworks all night or having a loud party or cookout with out of control craziness….oh no….we will be peacefully enjoying the day.

We're decorated though......just a little.

We’re decorated though……just a little.

We have RAIN today which will (so they say) keep all the people who normally flock to Washington, DC for the BIG, GIGANTIC fireworks display on 4th of July away……….they will, instead, probably have them tomorrow night.   They usually are pretty darn spectacular I just admit – we see them on television the next day when they replay the whole show from the fireworks.

This is what it USUALLY looks like down on the Mall in DC with the crowds waiting for the night display!

And they are never disappointed (assuming there’s no rain which would postpone them for a day!)…………some photos of the past fireworks in our Nation’s Capitol:


We are hoping that the world can celebrate with us with a day of PEACE…………………now wouldn’t that be nice?

In addition to celebrating our nation’s birthday, I’m here to remind all of you Teaser fans that tomorrow is Geography Class!   That’s right – we will be having a GUEST TEASER too – so be sharp – be ready – and know that should you be the FIRST to comment on the Teaser post tomorrow (this means YOU!), you will get this:

I was First Commenter on Sammy's Teaser of 7/05/16

I was First Commenter on Sammy’s Teaser of 7/05/16

You may remember LAST week we had FOUR (yes FOUR) people who commented within the first 60 seconds that the Teaser blog went LIVE – a four-way tie so we had four winners of this badge!   Will we do that again tomorrow or will someone be lucky enough to catch it on their own?????    We’ll find out soon enough!




I’ve been asked if SuzieQ will be out of Rehab in time to cheer us on……………….we will have a substitute cheerleader tomorrow as Suzie is still up to her eyeballs in THERAPY.    Yep – when you’ve gone off the trail as far as she has, you need time to find your way back!   Counselor Grizelda says she’s doing well…………..

SO, I’ll see you tomorrow – meanwhile, join me in celebrating today – July 4, 2016 – another birthday for the land of the free and the home of the brave (and me too!).


Hugs, Sammy (the REAL Uncle Sam!)
