Teaser Tell All

Standard

“We’re Ready to Rock – Clowie says we’re all secure so let’s do this!”

Good Morning Students! Today’s the day we let you know who did what on the Teaser yesterday.    We’ll start with who was the first to comment yesterday shall we?

Announcing the One and Only FIRST COMMENTER:

TIMMY!

WOO HOO TIMMY!!!!!!   

Your badge is ready for you:

I was the one and only FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser post of Nov. 10, 2020!!!!

“I’m feeling my cranky coming on….or do I just need a diaper change???”

Well, let’s move on………………….shall we?     The Teaser photo we had was from our Mom Graphics Department and it was not only a COLD photo but it fooled most people for a few minutes (!) after Teaser went live.   In other words, the person who won got it pretty darn quickly!

Here’s the photo:

We think it looks ICY COLD here too!   Where is this?

Hurry up – I wanna know!

This is the very old section of the village of Zermatt, Switzerland called “HINTERDORF”…………….don’t you just love the architecture.    You can see a peek of “modern” on the left but this old part of town is fascinating.    Want to learn more about it?    CLICK HERE.

WHO GUESSED IT FIRST???????????????????

Drumroll please for the announcement!!!

I’m so excited…….even though I didn’t even guess I’m still excited!

INGRID!!!!!

That’s right – Miss Ingrid guessed it right FIRST……….

Congratulations!  Here’s your Badge:

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of November 10, 2020. WOO HOO!

And if you also guessed correctly – you get a badge too!

Well I was right with my guess on the Teaser of Nov. 10, 2020 but I was NOT FIRST!

Then there were those of you who guessed but were WRONG………..you deserve something for your willingness to guess even if it was WRONG!    Here’s a badge for you:

Well I guessed but was WRONG on the Teaser of Nov. 10, 2020. I’ll do better next week – yep!

WOW – I forget how big this class is sometimes……

Well we all tried – there’s always next week right Professors???

That’s right Truman!   It could be YOU next week!

Cheer Team?  You’re ON!

It’s just a little nippy out
So we dressed warmly for our cheer and shout!
One FIRST COMMENTER is all we had
Timmy got there early thanks to his Dad!
Then it was just a matter of waiting
For a smarty pants student so we could stop anticipating!
Ingrid got to class and guessed right away
She got it quickly it was her lucky day!
We bet next week’s Teaser will be more tough
Then we’ll see who’s got the “right stuff” !!!!

Thanks girls……………….well done.    I’m sure Timmy and Ingrid appreciate your effort on their behalf.     The School Trainer asked us to tell you that your hot tub has been cleaned and filled with fresh water in your dressing room so you can warm up there!

Now who’s up for lunch??????    

Cool!   Let’s go!

Howdy students!  We’re all set for you here in the cafeteria – just grab a tray and come on down the line!

What’s For Lunch?

ENJOY YOUR LUNCH THEN HOP ON BOARD THE BUS FOR HOME!   SEE YOU NEXT WEEK STUDENTS!

Your Professors, Angel Sam and Teddy too

Teaser Tell All Time!!

Standard

It’s that time again!   Time to spill the beans on the Teaser from yesterday!     Clowie and crew are cooling off in the cafeteria after checking things out and report all is well on campus so LET’S GO!!

Ready! Fresh diaper and everything!

 

Let’s start out by letting you know we had THREE First Commenters yesterday!    When the school bell sounded there were three in front of the line and they are our “TRIO OF FIRSTIES”.

WHOOOO?

Teaser First Commenters were:   Timmy, Sharon and Janet!!

WOO HOO FOR THE FIRSTIES!!!!   Here’s your badge – take a copy for your collections:

I was ONE of the First Commenters but this week there were THREE First Commenters on the Teaser for July 7, 2020!!!

Congratulations FAST Students!

DANG! Foiled Again!

Here’s the photo we gave you yesterday…………………….very colorful and we had some very colorful guesses too!

What struck me first was that it doesn’t look like anyone is home.   No laundry hanging up on the porches – nobody walking around on the balconies…..no hang-gliders zooming by.    It almost doesn’t look real!!!    But it is………….and it’s Tbilisi in the Republic of Georgia.    Here’s a link to what Wikipedia has to say about this town and it’s most interesting history!    CLICK HERE

We love looking for out of the way places – we figure it’s a little tougher to do research and hunt for clues for this type of place too.   BUT a whole lot of you guessed this one!   ONLY ONE OF YOU WAS FIRST THOUGH……………..who was it?

Drumroll

Timmy Tomcat!

AND THE CROWD ROARS FOR TIMMY!

Concatulations Timmy…….you got it right first!  Here’s your badge:

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of July 7, 2020 and I’m mighty proud to get this Badge for my hard work!! WOO HOOOOO!

How about others who guessed right but weren’t first?    We have  a BADGE for that!!  Please take one if you were right:

I had the right answer for the Teaser of July 7,2020 but I wasn’t FIRST…..still I was RIGHT and that’s pretty cool – so is this badge!

Then of course we have the GREENIE PATROL………….those of you who bravely guessed but were WRONG – you’re still winners in our eyes because you tried!  You each get one of these:

WHOOPS – I was WRONG with my Teaser Guess on July 7,2020 but I still won this badge – cool!

Well done class………………………it was a toughie (so we thought) so next week we’ll see if we can fool you !    It’s a challenge though – you all are getting very good at figuring out what to look for and doing research on your computers to figure out where the photo was taken.

Now how about the Cheer Team – I’m sure they want to congratulate you all……………

What a Teaser you Professors picked
I’m sure you thought the whole class was tricked
We had a TRIPLE PLAY for First Commenter this week
That means we have three cheeks to tweek!
Timmy, Sharon and Janet were QUICK as could be
In the school door they came, one, two, three
Then we waited to see who would guess the right place
Along came Timmy with “I KNOW IT” on his face!
So congrats to the winners of this week’s fun
Sorry dear students but we’ve gotta run!!!

Now it’s time to head to the cafeteria for lunch!!!    There are also some breakfast items if that floats your boat………………………..after class it’s pop on the bus and head for home………until same time next week!

I’m now wearing a face mask in accordance with School Board guidelines for cafeteria workers to protect YOU!   All of us got to choose what masks we wanted and I thought this one was almost a duplicate of my real smile.   Enjoy your lunch!

What’s for Eats:

Homeward bound until next Tuesday!   See you then Students!   

Your Professors

Teaser Tuesday STARTS NOW!

Standard

Ding Dong – school bell ringing – report to class and COMMENT first!

“All secure – let’s report in to the Professors!!  Good job crew!”

Hello Students!   It’s that time again…..get comfy in your desk chairs and be ready to study a photo.   We didn’t award some of our NEW awards last week but we hope this week you all will do better – WE LIVE IN HOPE (haha).

“Well it’s not OUR fault you gave us an impossible photo last week!”

We know it was a toughie.  Believe me – we heard from just about the whole class that it was.  We don’t want things to be SUPER EASY for you either – it’s fun to research and figure out mysteries so this week we have another mystery but maybe you’ll figure this one out????

First up – rules and badges – ready?

Now as we said this week’s photo isn’t EASY but it’s not IMPOSSIBLE so put on your thinking caps, wear your newest prescription glasses so you can see well and warm your fingers and paws on your keyboard so you can do some searching for clues………………Security Guard – bring in this week’s photo please??

Here’s today’s photo Professors!

Now there may be some clues in this photo to help you on your way but the deal is still the same – no peeking at your fellow student’s computer screens to see what they’re looking for and do your best OK?

The Cheer Team is here to help get you in the mood…………………..(for the Teaser of course!).

What a day for a ride and some nice fresh air
Even if our helmets mess up our hair
You’re stuck in class but your mission is FUN
Figure out the Teaser photo and be Number One!
We think you’re all smart and can figure this out
There’s nothing worse to see than students in a pout!
We’ll be back tomorrow to see who are “smarties”
Then we can celebrate with a Teaser Winners Party!!

I’m sure you’ve inspired class today to do their very BEST – meanwhile you girls be careful on those pink Harleys of yours……..no drinking and driving either!

“Gosh Professors, you are a couple of killjoys!!”

Well Suzie we just want you ladies to be careful OK?  Have fun but be careful – that’s not asking too much right?

“Yes girls – boogie on down the road responsibility OK?

Good advice Roscoe!

Now who’s up for lunch?    I’m sure you’re hungry – Miss D has some breakfast items and lunch items as well so you should find SOMETHING that tickles your fancy (or your tummy)!

The cafeteria staff has prepared some delicious dishes for your dining pleasure today – enjoy!

Today’s FABULOUS Choices:

Good Luck Students!  See you regular time tomorrow!! 

Your Professors

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

Happy Thankful Thursday!   Thanks to Brian for being our host every week for this chance to all get together and share our THANKFULS.     So far, we are all getting along famously in my house.  Me, Dad, and Mom do everything together anyway so keeping an eye on each other through this virus has been easy peasy.     We also go on walks together and sometimes take naps together.   A whole lot of TOGETHER.    We’re all healthy too and very grateful and thankful for that.    Virginia is one of the states that hasn’t had an uptick in Covid cases this last few weeks too so that’s another thankful.

We’re also thankful here that we got Angel Sammy’s poem challenge and a new photo for next week – seems things are fine at the Rainbow Bridge – WiFi connections working just fine between us!

♥♥♥

Hello Friends!

Is everyone ready to read a little poetry?    You’ve had a whole week to work on a poem for the photo from last week so hopefully you were able to come up with something FUN for the photo that Little Binky and her Granny sent in.    Even though it was a photo “blooper” it looked like it would make for some FUN poetry.    If you wrote one, please let us know in comments so we can go to your blog and read it.

I’ll show you the photo you got last week to work on this week then my poem for that photo then NEXT week’s poetic challenge photo!    Ready?

“The Big Bad Wolf”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell        ©June 10, 2020

Remember the story of “The Three Little Pigs” ?

Three pigs living in a house made of twigs

The Big Bad Wolf said he’d blow their house down

Well it appears that’s what he did in this little German town!

The top of the building looks like it was ripped right in half

If it wasn’t so scary that might make me laugh!

The people in the town look like they aren’t bothered at all

Perhaps used to having coffee while their buildings fall ??

 

That was such a funny photo!     I’m sure everyone had fun writing a poem for this photo so let us know if you did so we can read it OK?

Next week’s photo inspiration is:

Well this is what’s called “fantasy art” but what intrigued me about the photo was not only the “mood” of it but what do you suppose is in that red box sitting on the path?    Hmm……..Well you have a whole week to write a poem based on this one!

Meanwhile please stay safe and healthy…………………………………..

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

 

We Angels Are Watching Over You……………   Love, Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

 

I know you are watching over us Angel Sammy – it makes us all feel very loved and safe……………………sending you a brotherly hug…………..

Love, Teddy

Teaser Tell All

Standard

OK we’ve got a “GO” from Clowie’s Security Team so let’s get the Tell All underway!

Yesterday’s photo was a heck of a whopper.   In fact, as we were preparing the Tell All on Tuesday afternoon we double/triple checked and NOBODY got it right at that point.   We knew it would be a toughie – there’s not a clue in sight – I think it would depend on whether someone figured out what the top of that structure is………!   We’ll give you the scoop and let you know who sent it in in just a few minutes!    No squirming in your seats – just be patient!

patiently waiting………………….

First thing to talk about is WHO WAS FIRST COMMENTER?     Actually we had TWO during the first 60 seconds yesterday…………………who?????

OUR TWO FIRST COMMENTERS WERE:

MISS CSILLA…………….and TIMMY TOMCAT !!

AND THE CROWD ROARS!!!!

Alright you two – each of you gets one of the NEW First Commenter badges with our congratulations!

There were TWO First Commenters on the Teaser this week and I was ONE OF THEM!!!

DARN DARN DARN!  I was here super early – if I hadn’t had to go to the rest room for a diaper change I could have commented FIRST!

Well that’s the breaks Rodney……………that’s the breaks.   You need to check your diaper before you leave in your stroller on Teaser Tuesday morning.

Then we sat here and waited……………………………and waited………………………………..and waited……………………while all of you looked…………………and examined………………..and puzzled…………..and searched for some sort of clue in the photo.    Here’s the photo FYI again:

it almost looks like part of Disney World’s Magic Kingdom…………..or maybe the steeple of a Cathedral………………..well, before we give you the scoop we can tell you WHO sent this one in…….it was our good friend Miss Ingrid of Meezer’s Mews and Terrieristical Woofs – here’s her link !    CLICK HERE

Where was the photo taken??????    In a town called Deventer, The Netherlands and it’s actually an old watertower there.    Here’s a link to investigate.    CLICK HERE

Thanks for this totally impossible Teaser Miss Ingrid…………I know a lot of students agonized over this most of yesterday and it really was so hard without any clues at all.   We did have some interesting guesses though – BRAVO TO THOSE WHO TOOK ON THE CHALLENGE!

Miss Ingrid this is for you for sending in that amazing Teaser photo:

My photo was used at One Spoiled Cat for their TEASER post of June 9, 2020!

Now obviously a whole bunch of you guessed but were incorrect – and if you were one of them who went out on that great high diving board of guesses and did a belly flop (haha) then you get a GREENIE – one of the new ones!     Make sure and wear it with pride.

The Teaser had me fooled – I tried but was wrong…..at least I got this cool badge for my effort!!

No First Right Guesser or Right Guesser Not First badges going out today – but that hasn’t happened TOO many times in all our years at Ding Dong School so that should be celebrated!    Our Cheer Team is celebrating – their cheer doesn’t have to be long without a FIRST RIGHT GUESSER to name.    GO GIRLS!

Yesterday was a very tough day
Nobody guessed the Teaser but it was FUN to play!
The photo was TOUGH and that’s no lie
Trees, an unidentified object and a lot of blue sky!
We did have TWO First Commenters so that was neat
Timmy and Csilla were FIRST to have a seat!
At least you got a badge with a new design
The rest of you have a good lunch and you’ll be feeling just fine!

Thanks for trying to cheer up our class.   I guess that’s what a CHEER Team does right ladies?

I think a bunch of you “has a sad”……………….we’ll cheer you up in the lunch room everyone.    Let’s go……………….and next week perhaps we’ll be awarding ALL our new badges !!!

Hello Class…..sorry everyone has a big frown on their face (except for Timmy and Csilla) but maybe a good lunch will cheer you up.    Enjoy!

Today’s Menu:

See you all next week!  We promise it won’t be QUITE as tough of a Teaser!!
