Memorial Day Pre-Tease Monday

Standard

It’s a holiday!  No school today BUT that doesn’t mean we aren’t “pre-teasing” !!

We are definitely getting ready for tomorrow’s Teaser as always but tempering it with a reminder that today is Memorial Day – a day to remember.

After we get our business out of the way, I have a little picnic set up for all of you for the holiday……no, today is NOT about food, but a little food never hurt anyone right?  

Yesterday on the blog, Teddy posed for a very patriotic selfie – you probably saw it but just in case, here it is again!

Nice job Teddy!  

Now shall we discuss the Teaser???    Tomorrow’s Teaser is a Guest Teaser (no groaning now – I know you think they are harder than other Teasers but NOT NECESSARILY!).    So, just be brave and remember it’s all in fun.   OKEE DOKEE?    I will tell you WHO the guest was on Wednesday when we do the Tell All and we WILL be in class that day as well as on Tuesday.

Remember that the Teaser post does not go “live” until WELL after the usual time our blog hits the airwaves which is at 3AM, Eastern Standard Time.   It can be AT ANY TIME on Tuesday morning – makes it that much tougher for you to be on top of things!   That much tougher for you to win FIRST COMMENTER badges because you don’t know WHEN we’ll pop up!   Sneaky huh?   BE BRAVE!  YOU CAN DO IT!

First Commenter on the blog post will get this:

Yep – you can proclaim that you are quick on the draw and commented FIRST (or maybe you will be one of the FIRST because sometimes we have more than one comment during the first sixty seconds the post goes live!!!!).

SO, I guess I’ll be seeing all of you here in class tomorrow??????    Suzie’s on vacation too so no cheer from her today BUT she will be back tomorrow cheering her brains out (which shouldn’t take too long….hahaha).    Meanwhile let’s have a nice Memorial Day Picnic – what do you say????   Enjoy and – remember what today is really all about…………REMEMBERING THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED OR ARE SERVING OUR COUNTRY!

Our picnic area – pull up a chair and grab some food!

Burger? Hot Dog? BBQ?

Ribs, cole slaw, the works!

Watermelon tea

Gotta have baked beans right?

The devil made me do it…..just had to have deviled eggs!

A whole table FULL of desserts!!

Land of the Free
Home of the Brave
THANKS TO THE BRAVE!

Love To All, Angel Sammy and Teddy

MEMORIALDAYREMEMBER

We Remember……………

Welcome to our Memorial Day Cookout…………….my friends Gracie and Raz and I hope you enjoy yourself while you’re here!   While we remember the reason for this holiday and what it really means, we also find that we just naturally want to be with our family and friends to enjoy each other’s company for time moves so quickly, and we should enjoy the moments we are lucky enough to spend together!    That’s why we’re having this cookout – so we can have food, fun and share memories as well as MAKE new memories!

Me, Allie, Gracie and Raz welcome you to our Memorial Day Cookout!

Me, Allie, Gracie and Raz welcome you to our Memorial Day Cookout!

First of all I do hope you like the location we picked for us to have our cookout…………….we have a beautiful spot along the water in a nice park where they have all kinds of things to do and see……….but mostly it’s just peaceful by the river.  Let’s start off our day together with some yummy breakfast – what do you say??

Now we can do whatever we wish – play volleyball anyone?   How about a dip in the pool?   Work up a bit of an appetite because before you know it the BBQ grills will be hot and we’ll be putting goodies on to cook – BBQ, burgers, hot dogs, sausage and there’s baked beans and all kinds of desserts!    The BIGGEST surprise I have for you though in the food department is that my buddy Raz and our mutual friend Pete have brought their famous (to Cat Scouts!) FISH FRY TRUCK to the park and anyone who wants the very BEST of fresh seafood, make sure and visit them because they’ve got it all!!!!!

No Labor For Me!

Standard

LABORDAY

Happy Labor Day!   I know not everyone is celebrating this holiday but WE are,

so I thought you’d like to see how I plan to LABOR day…….NOT………

Should I just spend the day here?  Yeah.....why not!

Should I just spend the day here? Yeah…..why not!

Actually I will be (virtually) at a Cat Scouts Labor Day pot luck today – all day –

but actually my parents will be visiting the neighbors for a cookout.  So

when I’m not pawtying with the Scouts, I’ll be on the couch snoozing. 

You betcha. 

That’s as LABORSOME as my Labor Day is gonna be!  

Lots of people here are celebrating the fact that since it’s Labor Day,

they don’t HAVE to actually LABOR

(unless you consider all the cookouts and picnics

that will be happening as LABOR)!!

Here's me with some of my friends being as "Laborsome" as we intend to get today!

Here’s me with some of my friends being as “Laborsome” as we intend to get today!

 

If you’re having a holiday today – ENJOY! 

If not, enjoy anyway! 

Remember:  Tomorrow is TEASER!   

Hugs, Sammy

Memorial Weekend Stuff

Standard

First of all, isn’t it great to have a nice three day weekend?   I know not all of you are getting one where you live but we in the US of A are and while it’s a reminder of many things including those who have fought bravely for our country, it’s also one of those family “party” occasions too – lots of cookouts and family get-togethers and of course the BIG Indianapolis 500 race!

INDYLOGO

The Cat Scouts was going to have a great big Indy 500 party but the site has been having a lot of issues – will take some time to iron everything out SO, the Tabby Cat Club is hosting a big “do” instead……….lots of fun to be had so I do hope everyone (whether you’re a Tabby or not!!!) will make sure and stop by – I promise you’ll be glad you did!!   Just click the photo to visit………..I’ll post it again here tomorrow too!   It’s really going to be fabulous.

INDYTCCBADGE

Then on Monday, yours truly is hosting with two cat friends a big fat Memorial Day cookout on our blogs……………EVERYONE is invited to that…………..we’ll have tons of food and fun I promise.  So, see?  Whether you’re in the USA or not, you’re included in our Memorial Day Weekend celebrations………………so be there – or be square!   I’ll have links posted to the other two blogs of my buddies on the day of the picnic…………….

Teaser Tell All

Standard

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??

Onward!

Wanna see the photo one last time????

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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:

TeaserBoobyPrize

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????

SunshinePicnicAward

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!!!
