Teaser Tell All Stuff……….

Standard

Yep – time for us to spill the beans about who won what from the Teaser yesterday.    Which – as I said it would be – apparently WAS an easy one because TONS of you guessed correctly!

BUTTTT, first things first.

First item of business today is to let you know who our FIRST COMMENTERS were – and there were TWO……………

DRUMROLL DOOD

Sharon at Friends Furever

Timmy at Timmy Tomcat

You two can do a VICTORY DANCE and also you both get one of these!!

Oh WOW! I was one of only TWO First Commenters on the Teaser of February 19, 2019! YIPPEEEEE!

Here’s the photo one more time that we showed you yesterday………………………

Thank you to Goodness Gracie Blog and Gracie’s Mom Steph for the PHOTO! 

My fabulous photo was featured on the Tuesday Teaser of February 19, 2019!

WHERE was this photo taken?     It is the Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic!     Turns out a lot of you guessed it OR knew it because you’d been there before.    Here’s some info about this beautiful bridge – one of MANY bridges over the river I might add…..my Mom and Dad were there years ago before I came to live with them.     CLICK HERE FOR INFO

WHO GUESSED IT FIRST?????

Whooooooo?

Annie of Animal Couriers

YAY MISS ANNIE!!!!!   Here’s a badge for you:

I was the FIRST to guess the Teaser of February 19, 2019 RIGHT! YAY FOR ME!

There were a bunch of you who were right this week – each of you in the BUNCH get one of these to celebrate with:

I might not have been the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER but I was still RIGHT on the Teaser of February 19, 2019!

And of course – those of you who were WRONG with your guess can add a little GREEN to your collection with this badge:

Phooey Pooey, I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of February 19, 2019 but at least I got this GREENIE badge!

Yes I’m disappointed but I’ll get over it…….MAYBE

Am I mad that my guess was wrong?  Heck yes!   I’m upset……and my diaper needs changing – so there!

Guess I’d better stand by in case the diaper changing thing goes awry……….

So good for all of you who guessed the Teaser this week…………….remember you too can have fun while others guess where YOUR photo was taken – just send us a photo, tell us where it was taken and we’ll use it here in Geography Class on a future Teaser!

I suppose if I send in a photo you won’t let me guess the Teaser huh?

OF COURSE NOT!   But you can sit in class listening to your groovy music and know that you might be fooling everyone…….that can be quite entertaining you know!

Now – before we head to the cafeteria, I’ll give you an update on the Blind Date for Miss Dingleberry – by the way the Poll is still open so if you haven’t yet voted, we’ll repost the poll after I tell you that in the TOP running so far are Date #7 (with the most votes), Date #5 in second place, and bringing up the third place are THREE tied – Date #1, Date #2, and Date #6!   There have been three “write in” votes:   Danny DeVito, Hannibal Lector, and our very own Kismet the Grumpy Parrot!       Remember to vote, we want to find the best possible Dream Date for our Miss D !!

We’ll let you know WHO is the winning Dream Date next Monday in Pre-Teaser Class.    Then on Wednesday, we’ll introduce Miss D to her DREAM DATE as chosen by all of US and sit back and watch sparks fly (hopefully)!!

Now shall we head over for lunch?

Time for you all to settle down in line and decide what you’d like to have for your delicious and nutritious lunch today.   All organic food with no additives – nothing but the best for Ding Dong School !!!  

Here’s Today’s Menu:

See you next week for another exciting Teaser Class!   

Your Professors

P.S.     We have a sad P.S. today………..day before yesterday one of Angel Sammy’s long-time friends and fellow Cat Scout went to the Bridge after a long battle with kidney disease.    Wally was a friend to EVERYONE.   His blog was one of the first ones Mom and Sammy followed back when they started blogging.    I was happy to meet Wally early on when I joined Cat Scouts but he was already sick at that time and we didn’t see him very often.    Please stop by his blog HERE and let his Mom and family know you’re thinking about them if you haven’t already.   I know that Angel Sammy was at the gates to meet Wally…….I just KNOW it!

 

Teaser Tell All Time!

Time To Tell All!

Yes indeedy – we are gathered here to give you the SCOOP on yesterday’s Teaser BUT before we do that, perhaps we should say WOO HOO for our FIRST COMMENTER yesterday?   Of course we should – she was in there commenting one minute after we went live – how’s THAT for “on the ball” ??   Who was it who accomplished this feat?

Miss Csilla (kolytyi)

This is for you Miss Csilla:

I was FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser of May 9, 2017!

Now on with the show……………….Yesterday’s Teaser was from a good friend of One Spoiled Cat – someone we haven’t had a Teaser from in AGES AND AGES (hint hint) and hope to maybe get one now and again from her – why?  Because everyone loves her Teasers AND her Tell Alls………….have you figured it out yet?    Well, hang in there – let me show you the photo then we’ll show you the Tell All and you’ll figure it out alright!!

Here’s her “Tell All” !

 

YAY!   Michelle Lewis from My Three Moggies blog…………….Thank you for the photo an the Tell All Michelle……….and making us smile by mentioning sweet Angel Sammy too.   This is for you:

For Michelle of My Three Moggies for Teaser of May 9, 2017

Now who was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER????    That was our good friend and frequent flyer of the Teaser, Miss Carol (CarolMaeWy) and you get this Miss Carol:

We had SEVERAL others who guessed correctly too and you all get this:

AND those of you who didn’t guess correctly win a GREENIE!!!!!!

While Michelle didn’t tell us in the Tell All, just for informational purposes, the statue is of St. Vitus who is just one of MANY statues on the Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic.   My Mom and Dad have been to Prague – a truly gorgeous city by the way.    They were on a cruise vacation that started in Prague and ended in Budapest.

So that’s this week’s Teaser all wrapped up!     Hope to see all of you NEXT week when we will be having another Guest Teaser for you – I wonder where we will be visiting next??????

Love and Hugs, Angel Sammy and Teddy

Jumping for Joy for Teaser Tuesday!!!!!

WHOOOOPS!!!!!!!!!   Know what we forgot?

We forgot that today was our BLOGAVERSARY!!!!   That’s right – Mom and Angel Sam started this blog May 10, 2011 with this totally BORING post!   (CLICK HERE)

Angel Sammy is gone but I’m here now and we’re still going strong……Mom is older and hopefully wiser, and I’m the new kid on the block having a ball – just like Angel Sammy said in his VERY FIRST BLOG…………..tomorrow we will talk a bit more about our anniversary that WE MISSED today…….DUH

HOW COULD YOU FORGET??!! 

Love, Teddy

TEASERTELLALL

YES INDEED IT IS TIME FOR THE TELL ALL!!!!! 

So shall we get down to it?  Let’s do it!

Firstly, it was not a Guest Teaser as you know since I didn’t SAY it was………….it was Mom’s photo.   It was taken when my parents were on vacation in Prague, Czech Republic a few years ago.  It’s a photo that Mom took JUST outside the Presidential Palace gates – Very close to the Palace but not IN the Palace – Mom was looking up the street towards the beautiful Schwarzenberg Palace and that’s the building you see in the photo.   It’s a gorgeous structure – wanna know more?  Just CLICK HERE for some info.

Here’s the photo one more time (Mr. Silver Briefcase will kindly whip it out of his briefcase for you…………)

Reporting for Duty! Here's the photo from yesterday!

Well it seems that the photo we posted yesterday fooled VERY FEW people!   Lots of people recognized where this photo was snapped………………..were you one of them???   Here’s an “instant replay” !

TEASERSept8

This is market square in Prague, Czech Republic………..the very FIRST stop on the tour my parents did when they took a cruise on the Danube River.   Prague isn’t anywhere NEAR where the river cruise actually started though – they had to bus to the ship then go on the cruise.   It was a wonderful tour and they had a GREAT time.  They were in a hotel in Prague for two days and the tour group went to this beautiful spot and did a lot of shopping for glassware and other souvenirs.  This is also the square where the amazing astronomical clock is located which Mom and Dad found fascinating.  There was also an antique car show there on the day they were there but Mom didn’t take any photos…..shame on her!

Here are a couple of other google images – one of the astronomical clock and another of the whole square where they did some shopping………………..

The shopping district and where the clock is located

Now I want to tell you about a beautiful award I got last week.   I received it from Miss Bev at MoggiePurrs and it’s called the “Butterfly Light Award” – don’t you love the name of it?  Wait until you see the award:

butterfly-light-award

It was originally created as a “thank you” from one blogger to another for some assistance received but the idea is that it’s passed on to bloggers who are “spreading light” with their blogs or are a “positive influence” with their blogging.  That’s why I thought it was so special……..it was very flattering that Miss Bev thought I was in that category!

The rules are that you must link back to the person who nominated you and here is that link MoggiePurrs.   DONE

You must link back to the originator of the award, Belinda who has two blogs, one of which is Idiot Writing .   DONE

Then you need to write a short paragraph about “How I’m Spreading Light” or “How I’m A Positive Influence” and display the beautiful badge.   (see below)

Then you must pass the award on to at least ONE and not more than a bazillion (haha) other bloggers.   (see below)

♥♥♥♥

My paragraph:

“I like to think I’m spreading light by trying to have a fun, happy, entertaining blog posted every single day about the life of one very spoiled cat who’s aging – sometimes gracefully and sometimes not so much – and make it a blog my readers look forward to.  It makes me happy thinking that my blog might cause someone who’s having a bad day to SMILE…..or someone who had a bad night to start their day by reading my blog first thing and changing their mood to POSITIVE.    Even better would be if they are so upbeat that the light spreads to someone THEY know…..and on and on and on.”

Who to pass this award to?  Honestly there are so many blogs that I adore……….so many who make me smile or think or hope or feel better………where do I begin?   I follow SO many…….each special in their own way.    One blogger who makes me smile every single time without fail is my friend Easy the silvermistygrey weimaraner.   You can’t read his blog without smiling and feeling better and certainly smiling………he lightens the blogosphere in many ways and he was the first to pop into my head when I thought of who to pass it on to.   So definitely this goes to Easy!!

But as I say so many of my blog friends are positive influences and consistently spread light that I’d like YOU to take the award if you feel you can honor the requirements.

Thank you Bev Harvey for nominating one very spoiled old cat with this lovely shimmering award!!

♥♥♥♥

Now – for the results of my Sam-O-Ween Poll where I asked for your answers to three burning questions regarding my Halloween fun on my blog this October.   Here’s what YOU want and this is what WE shall do!

  1. I will have a HAUNTED HOUSE for the party!
  2. We will have a contest for the FUNNIEST COSTUME (with a prize for the top two!)
  3. The party will be on Halloween – October 31st!!

I hope you’re happy with the outcome of the polls – I am!    I had a blast fixing up that old mansion last year for a haunted house and I’ll find a suitable SCARY spot for this year’s party –  Be thinking about what kind of costume you want to wear!

Happy Teaser Tell All

AND Happy Wednesday……………….

I love you guys!!!!!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I know you’re all tuned in this morning to find out who the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was and who ELSE guessed the right place where these photos were snapped by my pawsome parents!

MysteryPhotosAugust12

Isn’t this a way cool looking place?  My parents snapped a LOT of photos while they visited here.  Where is “HERE” you ask?  It’s Melnick Castle (also called Melnick Chateau)  just outside of Prague in the Czech Republic!!!  They have a winery there too and my parents did a wine tasting thing (of course) while they were there.

But know what ELSE?

NOBODY GUESSED IT RIGHT – NOBODY!!   So my friends, everybody gets this today – EVERYBODY!

The less coveted but lovely "I have no idea WHERE this photo is from" award......

The less coveted but lovely “I have no idea WHERE this photo is from” award……

It seems to me this might have only happened once before – where nobody got the Teaser right.  I’m sure it will never happen again (but I also know you should NEVER say “NEVER”!!).   Thanks to everyone for guessing though.  It was fun as always to get all the different guesses – wondering if someone would guess correctly.   I know – I’m a little devil for driving you crazy yesterday right????

Me in my devil costume.....

YAY!!!!  I had two Tuesday Teaser correct guessers!  Two of you guessed the city and the country………….LOTS of you guessed “Europe” but hey – that was just a tiny bit vague……..  😀 😀 😀

Here’s the photo one last time, then I’ll tell you where my pawrents took the photo!

Mystery Photo 4-1

It was in Prague, Czech Republic!!   Actually it was just outside the walls of the Presidential Palace (which is really a castle compound) and the reason there’s a crowd is because when my Mom and Dad were there, they were preparing for a special visit.  The palace guard and marching band and all sorts of people were standing around for the dignitary to arrive – the Ambassador of Latvia (so the crowd said).  Guess what…….my parents waited……..and waited……..and waited……..and waited some more and he or she never got there!  Everybody eventually drifted away (except the guards who all still stood at attention).  

Who guessed it?  Ya wanna know who?  I’ll tell ya who!

They get this:

BIG SAMMY HUG !!

Those of you who guessed “Europe” – well – I’m feeling generous today so I think I’ll give you all this:

Smaller But Still Nice HUG!!

How’s that? 

Now, just a bit of a reminder, that tomorrow is yet another friend’s birthday pawty…….who?  Why Texas, that’s who!   Don’t forget to stop by and wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY.  

Have a purrfectly lovely day everybody…………why?  Well because I love you – that ought to make your day perfect!

Kitty hugs, Sammy 😀 😀 😀
