Arrrrgh Mateys! Time for a Tell All!

56

Arrrggg Me Mateys!   ‘Tis time for Ye Olde Tell All!

You’ll have to put up with this language today – Why?   Well all across the Blogosphere tomorrow is TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY!   Since school is not in session tomorrow, we are celebrating Pirate Day a day early!    Try not to notice please that we have cowboy bandanas on instead of some sort of pirate gear – blame the Graphics Department!!

We told our Security Team they didn’t need to dress up today – besides we thought the pups-in-training might wiggle out of their pirate costumes and we didn’t want to lose them.   Right Clowie?

Besides you all look GREAT in your uniforms!!!!     

I see some of you have dressed up today for the occasion.    Try not to let that interfere with what we’re here for today – to tell you about yesterday’s Teaser and WHO WINS WHAT BADGES!

You look suitably THREATENING as pirates!   

Let’s get down to business now………….WHO was our FIRST COMMENTER yesterday?    Extra fast – popping in the SECOND our post went LIVE???????

TELL US WHO?????

TIMMY THE PIRATE!!

 

I’m a lucky Pirate! I was the FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser of September 17th for Pirate Day!!

Congratulations!  You will not have to walk the plank today!

Here’s the photo we gave you to agonize over yesterday…………………

This photo was not from our Guest Teaser person but it was SUGGESTED by our Guest Teaser person some time ago and we just got around to taking her suggestion!    I’ll tell you WHERE and WHAT this is then who our Guest Teaser was.     This is the FAMOUS “Snoopy Rock” in Sedona, Arizona!     Why “Snoopy” ?    Well it looks just like the famous beagle when he would relax on top of his dog house…………..don’t you think?

The story is that a Japanese tourist said he thought the formation of rocks looked like Snoopy and he was RIGHT!      Who was our GUEST TEASER who suggested this photo?

Whoooooo was it??

Miss Sharon from Friends Furever – Thank You!!

Now let’s get on with the other badges – would you like to know who our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was?????

Of course you scaliwags – who was it????

Da Phenny Da Pirate !!!   This is for you!

We pirates were FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Pirate Post for Teaser on September 17, 2019!

GO PIRATES GO!!!!

Did you also guess correctly?   There were several of you who did……..and each of you may take a copy of this badge to celebrate with:

I guessed RIGHT on the Pirate Day Teaser of September 17, 2019 but I was not FIRST RIGHT so I have to walk the plank!

And if you guessed but were WRONG?   This one is for you!

I must walk the plank because my guess was WRONG on the Pirate Teaser of September 17, 2019!

Our Cheer Team is of course ready to entertain you and cheer for the winners today!

Here we are in our pirate gear
Just in time for a pirate cheer
We know tomorrow pirate ships will sail
But we won’t be here to tell the tale
We say “Arrrrgg” to all of yesterdays winners
You all are pros not beginners!
Pirate Timmy was FIRST COMMENTER and he’s always fast
Then we saw the RIGHT GUESS before much time had passed.
Who was that Pirate you may want to know?
Why it was Captain Phenny and his pirate show!
We all have fun playing make believe
Rough and nasty pirates with FUN up our sleeve!
Happy Pirate Day tomorrow and enjoy yourselves
Soon it will be Christmas and we’ll have to be ELVES!

Thanks Team……….have fun at your party.   Don’t hijack any ships or steal any booty – just remember you represent Ding Dong Sheep School and our reputation is at stake!

Anyone who questions our reputation gets a taste of my trusty sword!

Thanks Sarge.    We knew we could count on you!    Now who’s up for lunch???????   Follow us!

Ahoy Me Mateys – welcome to the cafeteria – are you ready to walk the plank up to the serving line?????

Teaser Tell All…..Pirate Style!

AHOY Mateys!   Come aboard the Good Ship Sheep Dip! 

It’s time for the Teaser Tell All – Pirate Style!    ARRRRRGH…………..(excuse me, I’ve got a cough)     We had a whopper of a Teaser didn’t we?   Almost made you want to walk the plank instead of figure it out right?    Well, Terrible Ted the Pirate and his sidekick Angel Sammy the Devil  are here to give you the TEASER SCOOP.

In case you think we’ve lost our minds – today is TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY in the blogosphere and we at Ding Dong School pawticipate in that…….so there.

Now – where were we………..

Oh yes…………Teaser………….The first item of business is to let you know WHO was our FIRST COMMENTER yesterday – and our Cheer Team was overjoyed to hear that there was only ONE First Commenter this week.   Just one!    Who???

The Pirates at FRIENDSFUREVER!!!!  

Arrrgh!   You shall not have to walk the plank Friends Furever!!!!  Here’s your BADGE!

I was FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser of September 18, 2018!!!!

THEN we waited and waited until SOMEONE guessed it!    Here’s the photo again:

A mighty beautiful sight, she is………..a pirate island in the middle of the ocean……well, not OUR pirate island but maybe someone’s!     Where was this photo taken????   Well this is BIRD ISLAND in the Seychelle Islands in the Indian Ocean.    Seychelles is actually a REPUBLIC and Bird Island is just one of a LOT of islands in this group of beautiful places.   If you’d like to see more and find out more about this particular island too, CLICK HERE.

And WHO was the lucky Pirate who guessed where this was FIRST??????

MISS CSILLA of Kolytyi !

 ARRRRRGH!!!!  This little beauty doesn’t have to walk the plank either since she was right!   Here’s yer badge!

I was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of September 18. 2018!!

AND some others guessed it too – each of you take one of these of your very own:

I guessed the Teaser correctly BUT I wasn’t FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on September 18, 2018. DARN!

Then there some others who guessed but were WRONG – we will give you a break – we are kindly pirates (sometimes) and you will not have to walk the plank but you DO get one of these badges:

I guessed WRONG on the Teaser of September 18, 2018 but I got a badge anyway!!

Now can the LOSERS walk the plank Professors??????

 Normally everyone who didn’t guess and just showed up for the food would have to walk the plank…..BUT…..in the spirit of KINDNESS (some pirates are kind believe it or not) we won’t make you do that today!!

I was a little bit scared that you might make us (gulp) do the plank thing!

Now let’s celebrate by bringing in our Pirate Cheer Team to do their THING!

Don’t we look CUTE
In our pirate suits?
Today we have it easy
No need to get all queasy
One FIRST COMMENTER we had
I know that you are glad!
That was FRIENDS FUREVER
Our friends in all kinds of weather!
Our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was smart!
Miss Csilla makes sleuthing an art!
Now pardon us if we go
We’re having our own pirate show
We installed a plank on our hot tub
Then afterwards we’re getting backrubs!

I assume the Cheer Team’s Hot Tub room is closed to the general public?????   DARN!

Alright class……………today Miss Dingleberry has prepared some pirate food in the cafeteria so enjoy yourselves then sail home on your pirate ships and return in your regular clothing tomorrow!!

OK you scurvy scaliwag sheep, prepare for a pirate’s feast!   Do not stick your sword into the pirate in front of you, and do not eat your meal using your sword to cut things up.   Got it?   Good!!

Tuesday Teaser Me Hearties!

‘Tis Teaser Time Ye Scurvy Students!

(It’s also “Talk Like A Pirate Day” in the blogosphere…..)

Arrrgh!  Take a seat in the pirate ship before class begins but first – remember to COMMENT on this post so you can win a badge!!!!

Also up for grabs today are FLASHBACK badges for FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, RIGHT GUESSER NOT FIRST and WRONG GUESSERS!     We hope you’re enjoying the FLASHBACK badges!!

 

Now, before we get started with the Teaser photo, shall we REVIEW our rules here at Ding Dong School??????

ARRRRGH!!!!   Tell these scurvy students before I make ’em walk the plank!!!!!

OK – here’s the rules for today’s competition!

  1. To win a badge as RIGHT GUESSER, you must guess the TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE and the STATE (if in USA) or COUNTRY (if not in USA) where the photo or photos were taken.
  2. You can’t use any help like GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH – that’s just too easy and no challenge to it at all – we’d like it if you just studied the photos and figured it out without any help!!!!!   That makes the playing field EVEN.

SO – if you are ready to give the Teaser a whirl, let’s bring in our little Teaser Cheerleader – Suzie to get you fired up for studying and guessing!!!!!!

Alright you pirates and wenches
You’d better sit down on your benches
If you’re sitting there drawing a blank
You’re liable to be walkin’ the plank!
I hope you’re not in a fog
Or you won’t get some of Terrible Teddy’s grog!
Do you think this is just a big party?
Pass over your booty me hearty!

Thank you TERRIBLE SUZIE THE PIRATE DOOZY!    (or is it FLOOZY?)……………..now that we have the rules straight and we’re all ready to walk the plank, let’s show the photos for today’s TEASER shall we?????    These are from a GUEST TEASER and we’ll tell you WHO tomorrow.

ARRGH! Here’s ye photos for our Teaser Captain Sam!

Two for one today!   YES these are of the same place!!!

Now it’s up to all of you to do the HARD WORK – figure out where these photos were taken………………………and we’ll keep them up on the bulletin board for you here at school but right now, you’re free to take a little recess break – on your way out, stop by TERRIBLE TED THE PIRATE’S grog stand for a little pirate refreshment.

Have a pirate snack ye little pests!  And be nice to each other out there or else!

Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day!   Terrible Teddy and Captain Sammy

Friendly Friday Fill-Ins

48

Hello Everyone!  Time to Fill-In!

Friday’s favorite activity is the Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop which is co-hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffys’ Reader!  Are you a HOPPER with us?  If not, why not join in?   You can click on the badge above which will take you to McGuffy’s and you can use the LINKY tool to enter your blog link and VOILA – you’re hopping along with us!

Each week each blog gives us two sentences with blanks to fill – it’s FUN hopping around and seeing what everyone else has said.    This week Mom said I can give it a whirl and try to answer them ALL BY MYSELF!   Usually SHE does it…………let’s see how I do.   My “fill-ins” are in RED.

1. September bucket list: 1. Jump in the leaf piles Mom and Dad rake up! 2. Snoopervise Mom’s Fall mum planting – she digs the nicest holes for me!

2. If I came with a warning label, it would say “Beware of this cat’s love of eating crickets, chasing lizards, and thinking skunks are pretty kitty cats”

3. Truth be told,  I am so happy my Mom and Dad adopted me – I am truly “living the life” !!  Angel Sammy was right – this place ROCKS!.

4. I would rather eat dry food  than  wet food even though Mom WANTS me to eat wet stuff

 

There Mom!  How did I do?    Do I get an “A” for my fill-ins?    I hope so…………..I sure tried not to embarrass myself or you and Dad!

Yesterday we received a couple of cool badges from Ann at Zoolatry  – you may have seen them too but just in case, here they are.  One is a reminder of a COOLIO day that we celebrate every year – PIRATE DAY – and the other is a reminder that all those in the path of the powerful hurricane Irma need our prayers and any help we can give them…………

We hope and pray everyone in the path of this storm will be SAFE!

 

This will be my very first TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY……..I can’t wait!

Arrrrrrgh……

How did that sound?   Did I sound scary and “pirate-like”?

My Angel brother Sammy………………he made a swell pirate didn’t he?

P.S.   Today is my Mom and Dad’s 27th anniversary…….Concatulations Mom and Dad!

 pirateflagpirateflagpirateflagpirateflag

 

Sailing the seven seas with his pirate crew

Searching for treasure and captives too 

Stealing their gold and sinking their ships

Stealing the heart of some innocent Miss

Pirates will pillage and pirates will plunder

Wreaking havoc and woe casting feelings asunder

The life of a pirate is not for the shy

Captain Savage Sam has the swagger, he is quite a guy

  When ‘ere you are sailing keep an eye to the sea

For Savage Sam’s ship might be sailing towards Ye !!
