Tell It Like It Is Time Class – please take your seats!!!

Alright then we shall start class!    First item to discuss would be WHO our FIRST COMMENTERS were yesterday – who was quick off the mark and who were the earliest birds who caught the worm???

Miss Sharon from FRIENDS FUREVER and Miss Jackie from TWO DEVON CATS!

WOO HOOOOOO!

You ladies are entitled to a FIRST COMMENTER badge so please copy one for your VERY own!

I was one of only TWO First Commenters on the Teaser of August 7, 2018!! YAY FOR ME!

AND then it wasn’t too long after that we had our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER but before we tell you who that was, I want you to know who our GUEST TEASER was and also tell you about her photo she send to us.    WHO was our GUEST this week?

Miss Jackie from Two Devon Cats!!  YES! 

WOW! She gets TWO badges today – lucky HER!

This is a THANK YOU for you Miss Jackie – we appreciate you sending in the pawsome photo!

My fabulous photo was featured on the Tuesday Teaser of August 7, 2018!

Here’s the photo she sent in and that we used for yesterday:

This is a photo of Belle Tout Lighthouse on Beachy Head at Seven Sisters Cliff which is near Eastbourne in East Sussex, UK!   She also sent in some INTERESTING link to this place so take a peek if you’d like to know more about this place:

Thank you for the links too Miss Jackie……..we love to learn about new places on Teaser Tuesday

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

Drumroll PLEASE…………!

Miss Csilla from Kolytyi

WAY TO GO MISS CSILLA!!!

Congratulations Miss Csilla and we have a badge for you to add to your collection:

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of August 7, 2018! Whoopeeee!

We had SEVERAL other students who figured the Teaser out after Miss Csilla and if you were one of them, then you get this badge:

I guessed RIGHT on the Teaser of August 7, 2018, but I wasn’t FIRST….oh well….I did GOOD!! Maybe next week I can be FIRST.

And if you guessed but were WRONG with your guess………you get a GREENIE for trying!

I was wrong on the Teaser of August 7, 2018 but at least I TRIED!

PHOOOOOEY! I was wrong again!

No worries – there’s always next week.   Study hard and who knows – you might take home a badge.    Now for the Cheer Team – they always know how to get a crowd going!

Winners – Winners – we have a few
If you were one of them LUCKY YOU!
Our TWO First Commenters were Jackie and Sharon
With whistles blowing and horns a-blarin’ !
Then came Miss Csilla who was FIRST to be RIGHT…..
I bet she’ll be happy and high as a kite!
Ding Dong School has lots of smart students
Studying hard each week might be prudent!
We’ll see you next week for Pre-Teaser time
We have a whole week off from writing these rhymes!!

Thanks Cheer Team……………….don’t know how you come up with this stuff week after week but I know one thing – We Professors are glad you have to make them up because we sure couldn’t!

Last but not least by any means would be our lunch break for the day.    Hope you will take time to get your strength back from Teaser activities before you head home on your bus.   We’ll see you in class again next week………………..

YAY it’s Sub Day and Miss D also made some crunchy and munchy onion rings if you want some!!

Fried onion rings!

Delicious milkshakes too

Yep – that happens to a lot of us when we have lunch at Ding Dong School!!!

Your Professors at Ding Dong School, Angel Sammy and Teddy

Welcome to class students……before you get too comfy though HAVE YOU COMMENTED???

Now please settle down in your desks and quit throwing paper airplanes and pulling Suzie’s pigtails and making faces at each other and saying NOT ALLOWED words……in other words, please be little ladies and gentlemen.

Alright class – you heard the Professors!

Today is the day we put you to work and see if you’ve been studying and trying to become familiar with different parts of the world so you will be able to look at a photo and figure out WHERE it was taken!    Could be ANYWHERE on the planet.   Here are the class rules for making a guess:

About #2 – it would be just so easy to load a photo into a program and have the computer tell you WHERE it was taken but it’s more fun to do some real detective work we think!   If there’s a mountain range in the photo you can google “high mountain ranges” – look at the images and maybe you’ll figure out where the photo was taken………….if there’s a big red building with six fireplace chimneys you can google “large red brick building with six chimneys” and you MIGHT find it!    See?   That’s real detective work and that’s definitely allowed!

We know all those rules Professors…..you don’t have to tell us that stuff!

We know you students who have attended class before are familiar with the rules BUT it never hurts to review them.   Besides, we have new students join our class from time to time and THEY might not understand the rules.

I’m new and I was happy to get a rule review!!!

I had to drag ask our Cheer Team to vacate the hot tub 15 minutes ago before class – I know Sarge is out of town visiting relatives but he COULD surprise us and come back early and the Cheer Team would get in trouble…………..

Team – class is starting soon – time to dry off and put on your uniforms!!!

We don’t want Sarge to get upset…………we know how Sarge CAN get upset don’t we class??

YES we do and “it ain’t pretty” !!!!

Oh here they are – all pruney from the hot tub but in uniforms and ready to pump up the volume and get class READY TO GUESS!

Well we might be a little pruney
But we’re certainly not loony
We’ll get you primed for guessing
Then we have business that’s quite pressing
We’ve got dates lined up for dancin’
And who knows maybe some romancin’ !
But back to the reason we’re here
We are here to do a TEASER cheer!
Mishy Moshy Moto
We hope you recognize the photo…
You get a badge if you guess it right
Now get to work and FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!!!!!

OK Cheer Team……….you went around the barn on that one but you finally got to the point – so without further ado, let’s bring in our security guard with today’s TEASER photo so you can get to work guessing!

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted

WHERE WAS THIS PHOTO TAKEN??????????????????????????????    Be first to guess correctly, or even just be RIGHT with your guess if you’re not first and you win one of these:

If you’re WRONG with your guess you still get this!

And remember at the beginning of class I said you needed to COMMENT so you would be FIRST to comment???  That’s because anyone who comments in the first 60 seconds (could be one of you or more) will get this:

Tomorrow at the TELL ALL class we’ll tell you who won and who gets what………………………..so to round out today’s class and because it’s hot as blazes outside, we have set up the ice cream wagon and Miss D is ready to serve you ice cream!    She’s also got some cookies and milk shakes.    Find a shady spot and enjoy your treats and we’ll see you tomorrow!

Milkshakes!

Good Luck Class! 

Your Profs

Tuesday Teaser

Good Morning Class!   Time to COMMENT is NOW!

That’s right – when you get here on Tuesday morning right after we go LIVE, you could be FIRST to comment and you would be winning this little beauty:

Today we have a goodie for you in the Teaser department.    I like these kinds of photos because you see SO MUCH but you may not see the “right” things to lead you to the path of CORRECT GUESSING.   There’s so much in the photo it’s hard to pick up any clues.    But before we do THAT, let’s talk about rumors!    Yesterday our Cheer Team did a whole cheer based on the possibility that our very own Sarge and our very own Marge might be planning a nuptial occasion.    Who knows where they come up with this stuff, but we asked both Sarge and Marge if they would like to comment on that and OH BOY DID THEY EVER WANT TO!!!!

NOW HEAR THIS!   I categorically deny that Sarge and I have the slightest romantic feelings or intentions towards or with or around each other and under no circumstances would we even eat lunch with each other much less share a romantic entanglement of any shape, color or size!    We are colleagues at Ding Dong School, each dedicating our talents to keeping the children of Ding Dong School safe, secure AND well educated and have ZERO time for foolishness!    I must insist that the Cheer Squad issue a retraction of their previously stated “news” and cease and desist from spreading romantic allegations of this sort in the future.   OR ELSE DEMERITS WILL BE ISSUED!!!

Yep – it’s all FALSE…….I wouldn’t touch Marge with a ten foot……uh…..um……submarine sandwich from Miss Dingleberry’s kitchen!

Alright you two – thank you for clearing that little matter up.   Let’s return to talking Teaser shall we??

Yeah….who wants to hear about mushy stuff like romance?!?! Yuck!

What’s a romantic entanglement…..I dunno whatchou talkin’ about!

Good – you all are too young in this classroom to be talking about that stuff anyway.   Besides this is GEOGRAPHY and not SEX EDUCATION!

I want to remind everyone what the rules are for guessing where today’s TEASER photo was taken…………..these are strict rules now so best pay attention before you start guessing:

Now, before we get our Security Guard to bring out today’s Teaser photo – how about we get our Cheer Team to give you a rip-roaring cheer to get you ready to guess!

We might have been mistaken
With the rumour we were creatin;
So I guess we’ll apologize
For embarrassing you guys!
Sorry Marge and Sargey
There will be no wedding party
Now let’s get back to class
We want you all to pass
Good luck with your Teaser test
With brains I hope you are blessed
Just try your hardest to win
Or Dingleberry’s head will spin!
(you didn’t expect us to do a serious cheer did you????)

Thanks team……………you certainly managed to take our minds off Marge and Sarge………………the thought of Miss Dingleberry’s head spinning is quite a VISUAL.

Spin a record…yes…spin a head…..no!

Mr. Security Guard, could you come on in with the photo for today?   Class is disintegrating before our eyes so we need to get the photo up ASAP………..thanks!

WHERE was this photo taken class?    City/Town/Village and Country if not in USA or what State if you think it’s in the USA.    READY SET GO!

If you are FIRST to guess correctly, tomorrow when we hand out awards, you will win this:

If you’re RIGHT with your guess but you’re not the FIRST to be right, you get this:

And those of you who guess but are WRONG with your guess – you still get to take home a little token of your failed but valiant effort to get the Teaser correct:

 

So get to guessing………………and when you’re ready, I do believe Miss Dingleberry will be rewarding us today with LUNCH outside in the playground………….!    Remember, tomorrow is the day we find out who studied and who didn’t study…………and find out WHO wins WHAT in the Teaser badge department!

ALRIGHT!    Enjoy your lunch – and good  luck with the Teaser – Your PROFESSORS have LEFT the building……………………………………

Professors Angel Sammy and Teddy too!!

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

55

Hello Friends!!    It’s Thursday and you know that means TWO goodies in one blog day for us.    We always started with our friend Brian who hosts “Thankful Thursday” blog hop because it’s just a GREAT way to start a day – focusing on what we are thankful for.   I look back at my week and come up with thankfuls – how about you?   Want to join the hop?  Click on Brian’s badge above and fill out the Linky form and you’ll be with us.

I am thankful this week that I am FINALLY feeling better.   I guess I haven’t talked much about it because I was pretending it wasn’t there (!) or that if I ignored it, it would go away.   But it didn’t………for well over two weeks I was not myself AT ALL.    I slept all the time, wouldn’t eat or drink much, but after several trips to the vet and blood work there seemed to be no REASON for it.   I did have one degree of fever but nothing else was showing up on any tests or in any exams I had.    I was prescribed what amounts to Kitty Advil (an anti-inflammatory) to take for three days though and I am a bit perkier after taking that.   Coming out of my funk slowly perhaps.   “Just one of those things” I suppose.    But know what?    I’m still THANKFUL that I feel better and am acting more like ME…….my Mom and Dad were worried about me.   Everyone was worried about me – EVEN I WAS WORRIED ABOUT ME!    So I am very thankful for improvement of my “mystery malaise”.

Thankful too that my brother didn’t let me down – he never has……..Angel Sammy sent his poem to me for “POETIC THURSDAY” and I’ll share with you now!

♥♥♥

Happy Thursday Poetry Fans!

It’s time to share the poems we wrote this past week inspired by the PHOTO I challenged you to write a poem about.    I hope you’re having fun with this project – I know I do and those of you who have participated so far obviously MUST have fun because your poetry is fabulous.   If you haven’t joined in, please do.   You just have to look at a photo prompt that I provide you and you have a whole week in which to do a poem based on what YOU “see” in the photo, or how it makes you feel……get creative with me!    

Here’s the photo we wrote a poem about THIS week followed by MY poem – I can’t wait to read yours!    I thought this was a truly interesting photo of the biggest cave EVER………I thought it was super inspiring!

“Awesome”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell    March 22, 2018

Just when we think we are ever so tall

That we’re mighty, and strong, and in charge of it all

We will see or experience something that shows

How little we observe and how little we know!

The majesty of nature is truly amazing

High cliffs, deep oceans, even caves are hair-raising!

The scope of their “grandness”, their beauty and size

Can move us so deeply, it brings tears to our eyes…..

Our world is so awesome and we need to take care

We don’t ruin all this beauty so in the future it’s still there.

Wildfires, clear cutting, and blasting through for roads

We ask so much of nature, it’s limit we overload……..

Inside this big cave, so dark, quiet and full of power

We may be small but must defend this beauty until the final hour…………

 

There were so many things this photo made me feel it was hard to single one thing out so I made it about more than one thing……………but the true awesomeness of nature is something we must not take for granted.    Maybe we will all live on other planets one day but for the HERE AND NOW we must take care of this beautiful blue planet we live on.

If you wrote a poem today from this same photo – please tell us about it in comments!   Give us a link where we can read it – enjoy it…………OR show us your poem in comments – write it out and share.  

I have another photo for you for next week…………..you have all week to look at it and think about it and decide what you want to write about!    Ready?

Spring?    We hope it gets EVERYWHERE soon!

See you all next week…………..thank you for having fun with some poetry along with me every week…………………………….It makes me HAPPY!

Love, Your Angel Poet Sammy

Oui Oui – me in my French beret which inspires my POETRY!

♥♥♥

Thank you Angel Sammy and thanks to all of you for tuning in on Thursdays.    Can’t wait to see what poetry you come up with for Sammy’s challenge next week!    Stay warm (or cold) as the case may be.

Hugs, Teddy

 

 

Tuesday Teaser

Don’t forget to COMMENT!!

Good Morning……….time for the Teaser – are you ready?

Here we are – gathered together to try and figure out WHERE today’s photograph was taken…………could be anywhere on the globe……..but WHERE?   That’s your job to figure out!    I hope you’ve COMMENTED because you MIGHT win a badge if you are FIRST!

THIS ONE!   We’ll tell you tomorrow who gets one!

So onward we trudge to the object of today’s class…………..the piece de resistance – guessing the location of the photograph…………here are the rules you MUST follow when you guess:

Clear????

Clear as mud…..

I TOTALLY understand!!

Our photo is from a Guest Teaser today………….and before I ask our Security Expert to show you the photo, I thought you might enjoy hearing from our Cheerleaders – WHO by the way – are all present and accounted for today after Suzie was left on her own yesterday!

Your whole team is here
We’re ready to cheer
No coughing, wheezing, or shedding of tears!
We may not be wealthy
But we’re finally healthy
So we’ll try to inspire
Set your minds on fire!
Good luck with your guess
We wish you SUCCESS!!
Tomorrow we’ll be back
We won’t cough, sneeze, or hack…
It was just a tummy bug
We had some accidents on the rug…
(whoops)

 

Thanks you all – you may be dismissed and we suggest you stop by the School Nurse’s office for a shot or pill or bottle of cough syrup or something before you leave!

Cough Cough – OH Noo! I’ve got the creeping crud!

Oh I’m sure you’re just fine……………probably just the heavy perfume Suzie has on today – you may be allergic to it.    Let’s move on.   Security Guard would you please bring in today’s Teaser photo for the students?

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted – sorry I was late….I got a flu shot on my way here – I heard some of the cheerleaders were SICK!

Where was this photographed???????  

Hmmm….this is a toughie!

Remember if you are the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, or if you are RIGHT with your guess but not first, OR if you are WRONG, you get an appropriate badge tomorrow !

Groovy……

Well I’m glad you think it’s GROOVY – we’ll see how well you all do with your guesses!    In the meantime, I’m happy to say that Miss Dingleberry has not let us down – you may sit AT your desks and study and work on research as to WHERE this photo was taken.    She has made it easy for you to stay in the classroom because she has just snacks for us today instead of a big lunch.   Pick your snacks, sit at your desk, and WORK HARD!     We will convene class in the morning and announce who wins what!

YEAH WHADDAYA WANT KID?????

Enjoy your snack and we will see you in class tomorrow!

The Professors

 

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

43

Today We’re THANKFUL with Brian and Poetic with Sammy!

Thursday is our “two posts for one” day – we’re starting off with being Thankful on Thursday with our friend Brian (click badge above) and joining his Thankful Blog Hop.   We all share what we’re thankful for and it’s fun to see what everyone has been thankful for the previous week.   If you click the badge you will go there and you can join up with the rest of us!

I have a kind of silly thankful this week – today is day TWO of some incredible weather here in Virginia.   It’s February and we have two days in a row of almost 80 degrees.   That is TRULY weird.   Oh a “normal” February day, it’s anywhere from 30 -45 degrees and maybe some snow thrown in the mix.   We even DID have snow this past Saturday!    Anyway, it’s been glorious and I’ve been able to get Mom and Dad to take me out on the front porch for some SUN and some fresh air and lots of walks around the yard.   I’ve dug some holes, eaten some grass and rolled around in the dirt!   LIFE IS GOOD.   Tonight cold comes back so I’ve been very THANKFUL for a break!

Onward to part two of our blog today which is when we get to see the poem Angel Sammy sent us for his Poetic Thursday challenge……………

♥♥♥

It’s Poetic Thursday my friends…

Nice to be with you all today – Thursday is MY day with what used to be MY blog but my little brother Teddy is now hosting.    He does a great job but gives me some space to do MY thing on Thursdays.    Every week I give you a PHOTO and your challenge is to write a poem about that photo – what does it make you think about, what do you feel when you look at it, what comes to mind, etc.    It’s a lot of fun……..AND everyone can write a poem if you just try.     Honest!     After I share my poem from this past week’s photo, I’ll give you a NEW photo for NEXT Thursday to write a poem about……….

Here was last week’s Photo inspiration:

Alone

By Angel Sammy Kimmell   Feb. 22, 2018

There are times when we really want to be alone

No knocks on the door, no ringing telephone

Just relaxing in the quiet of a “newborn” day

No questions asked – so no answers to say

But being alone isn’t always the best

We might have a problem to get off our chest!

We might need some help with a problem or two

Or perhaps there are times when only a hug will do…

Still, it’s important to feel “whole” when we’re just one

For each of us has a journey of our own to be done

The road we each travel is ours to complete

Although having a partner makes the trip much more sweet.

 

Sometimes it’s good to be alone………..but sometimes we really don’t want to be alone and need a friend or partner to be there for us and with us.    We are though individuals over and above what we are with others so we HAVE to be comfortable within ourselves.   My Mom says she learned this when she was single after being married the first time!!   She didn’t know how to be ONE – she only knew how to be HALF of two!     I was always alone being an “only kitty” but to tell you the truth, I was always MUCH happier when my Mom and Dad were there with me………….  That was the inspiration for my poem today.    And “ALONE” was the first thing that popped into my head when I wrote my poem for today.   

Did you write a poem?   If you did, how about giving us the link to your poem in my comments?   We can ALL read it!   If you didn’t write one – join us next week……I promise you’ll have fun.    Now for next week’s photo inspiration!!

This one ought to be fun right?   I’ll see you next week – can’t wait to see what you do with this photo…………..it’s thought-provoking for sure!   

Oui Oui – me in my French beret which inspires my POETRY!

Love, Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

Thanks my brother!    That was a doozy of a poem…………….and I’ll be looking forward to next Thursday when we get together again to be THANKFUL and to read POETRY together!!!

Hugs, Teddy

P.S.  

We learned this morning that Sarge – Blogville’s favorite pawlice chief and friend to all, has left for the Rainbow Bridge.   We hadn’t heard from him in a long time and then when we did – it was this sad news……..we will always remember this special guy.   You can leave a message for his family HERE

Tuesday Teaser

20

Hi Everybody!  It’s that time again………..time to put on your thinking caps, click the photo to make it larger so you can SEE it (even with a magnifying glass!), and scratch your head and search your memory banks to see if you can guess WHERE my parents were on vacation for THIS photo taking session.

Every time I say “this one is easy” it isn’t…….so I’m not going to say that (I might think it though..tee hee). 

So – hit me with your best shot gang………….whatcha think?

Don’t forget you can click to enlarge!

Sammy Sez:  “Mom – you REALLY need to do better centering these photos on your scanner before I upload them…..!!!”

Mom Sez:  “Hush Sammy – maybe the whole world is cockeyed and the picture is actually STRAIGHT – did you ever think of that????”

 See you tomorrow…..Kitty Hugs, Sammy
