WOW! That was some Teaser yesterday huh? I had some fabulous guesses though I have to admit………..and I have to say before I finish writing this post and scheduling it for the morning that as of RIGHT NOW (3PM EST) nobody has guessed it. Nobody has been even close……….. but tomorrow when my Mom gets herself awake enough to help me get to the computer (maybe 6AM EST) I’ll take a quick peek at other guesses that came in from 3PM to midnight EST to see if anyone HAS guessed it, and I’ll be sure to do an EMERGENCY POST to announce it! OK? Is it a deal??
Wanna see the photo one last time????
Now first of all I want to THANK (and hug) my “Guest” who provided this magnificent photo – which I do believe she probably took on one of her walking vacations in (ready?) Northern Ireland! That mountain you see in the photo is part of the Mourne Mountains. There’s several great websites with info on this pretty and popular walk/hike/visit but I found info at http://visitmournemountains.co.uk. WHO was my “Guest” ? My good friend Isobel from the UK who has TWO blogs – one called IsobelandCat (she’s got a very handsome ginger boy like me!) and the other is GuidedbyIsobel (Isobel is a guide in London among other things!).
Special Sammy Hug for Miss Isobel!
So, as I said, nobody had guessed Ireland much less Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland as of this writing SO, for now anyway, I WIN I WIN I WIN! The rest of you dear friends get this little gem:
Since this is a shorter post than it would have been if I was posting awards for the Teaser (ahem), I’m gonna move right into the Sunshine Picnic Award badge that my beautiful friend Nellie gave me when she invited me to come to her pawsome picnic. If you want to have your OWN picnic and pass on this pretty badge, all you have to do is invite the person who invited YOU to be your “special guest”, then pick ten friends to invite and give them something to bring to the picnic as their contribution! Fun huh????
Nellie – I hope you will be my special guest……….and the rest of my ten guests and what I’d like them to bring are:
Kitties Blue – and the thing I’d like for YOU to bring to this fabulous picnic would be some of those wonderful food bowls like the one I received from your Mom – that would be an elegant addition to the picnic for us to eat from!
Sundae (my girlcatfriend) from These Days of Mine – Sundae, purrrhaps your Mom will let you bring one or two of those nice cozy quilts that you take naps on so we can sit on them in the grass at our picnic?
Fozziemum – I think what I’d most like you to bring to my picnic would be some of that nice HOT WEATHER you have “Down Under” right now because we’re freezing our tushies off here!
Mollie and Alfie – how about you guys bringing an assortment of treats like the ones your Mom bakes? Only maybe some for all kinds of creatures because I’ve got guinea pigs, humans, cats AND dogs invited to this picnic!
Oscar of Lessons With Oscar – first of all Oscar, you can come with your human because I know you’re blind and might not want to travel to my picnic alone…..so THAT can be what you bring to the picnic – your Mom!!
Boomdeeadda – oh Miss Boomdee….there are so many things I could ask you to bring but I think they would all just HAVE to be aqua-colored (!!) but since you are so VERY crafty, how about you making placecards for us at our spots on the quilt for our picnic???
Two Blind Cats and Crew – you all are some of my newest friends and I know you guys are also sight-challenged like my friend Oscar, so I think it only fair that YOU bring your human Mom along too…..I don’t want anyone getting lost on their way here!
Bowie – my friend Bowie, I can’t think of anything better for you to contribute to our picnic than some expresso and plenty of DARK CHOCOLATE for dessert!
Hutch A Good Life – oh I just know that I can rely on you guys to bring a nice big tray of very healthy veggies for everyone to munch on – how’s that for your contribution???
Misaki – how about bringing some of your toys to share with everyone Misaki? I know you must have a giant toybox full of fun stuff…………!
I could go on and on and on inviting more of my friends BUT I want to leave some for YOU to invite to YOUR picnic if you decide to have one. I know my picnic will be perfect if all of you come and I also know that having Nellie here will be the crème de la crème !
Those of you busily working on your spacesuits or hotel rooms or monsters, know that if you’ve forgotten the details for our upcoming TRIP TO THE MOON, you can revisit the post for those details RIGHT HERE!!!
COUNTDOWN TO FEBRUARY 27th IS UNDERWAY!
Happy Wednesday Peeps !! Sammy
