Teaser Tell All

Gosh you all did it YET AGAIN………………I thought that would be a toughie for you yesterday and it wasn’t………..in fact within seconds of the Teaser going “LIVE” we had a right guesser who guessed the right place!

Here’s the photo again:

This is a gorgeous spot overlooking the blue blue waters in Scopello, Sicily !!!   My friend Leo of Walk To Rio 2016 had actually cycled in this very spot so he really DID know where it was taken.  BRAVO LEO!   But someone ELSE guessed “Sicily” first even though he didn’t guess the city like Leo, so because he was first with “Sicily” I’m giving him HONORABLE MENTION!!!!

First though, Leo, you get this little beauty!

Everyone who guessed Sicily, Italy OR Scopello you were RIGHT but not FIRST so you get this one!!

Right but not FIRST!

You dear friends (and family!) who didn’t have a clue……….well……..as you know I NEVER forget anyone so you guys get this!

Uhoh...you blew it!

Uhoh…you blew it!

Now, for some more big news……………I’m going to be pawticipating in the Indy 500!    Yep…..well, SORT OF………I’m going to help host the Indy 500 celebration at Tabby Cat Club on race day – May 25th!  That’s right……how cool is that?  You’ll have to visit the TCC and see all the cool cats in their race cars having some fun…………I’ll be one of them for sure.   It will be all day long and should be tons of fun………

Also, my parents deserted me most of the day yesterday (imagine that) and took some time to head up to the Blue Ridge Mountains to drive down Skyline Drive and have lunch at Big Meadows Lodge.  HOW DARE THEM!   Know what’s even worse?  Both of them had fish type items for lunch but they did NOT (REPEAT NOT) bring back a kitty bag for their beloved cat.  Nope.  Not a scrap.  Selfish huh?  I think so.  They did snap a few pix though – it does look like it was a pretty day to do Skyline.   It’s only an hour away from here so a very nice day trip (but that doesn’t excuse them for not bringing me a treat!).

Hugs and Happy Tell All Day!

The Peeps’ Mini-Trip

Standard

Hi Everybody!  It’s Thursday already.  Where does the time go?  Maybe it’s because I’m getting older – – – Mom say time is flying by for her too and she’s old as dirt  got a few years on her so it MIGHT be an age thing.

Anyway – where was I??  Oh yeah…….on Tuesday my parents decided early in the morning to do a little day trip – just to get out of the house – NOT to get away from me of course….besides, I was napping when they left AND I hate to be in the car PERIOD.

They went to a place they’ve been many times before – and it’s only about an hours’ drive from my house.  It’s called Skyline Drive.   One of the most beautiful drives in the entire State – it’s 105 miles long and travels along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah National Park.  There are 75 spots you can stop and get incredible views of the Shenandoah Valley.   At its’ highest point (on the drive itself) it’s over 3,500 ft. elevation.   Here are a couple of shots Mom took:

There was a huge cloud bank over the valley – looks pretty cool huh? 

There’s lots of campgrounds around – and a lodge with cabins too plus two restaurants, a Nature Center, a Visitors Center and some craft/souvenir shops.  My parents had a super good time and I hardly knew they were gone (but don’t tell them that or they might feel bad that I didn’t notice….hee hee).

Here’s where I was while they were driving along Skyline Drive:

….zzzzzzzz…..

I just bet all you animals out there agree with me that what I was doing was infinately more relaxing than what THEY were doing.  Although I have to admit, if I didn’t hate being in a car so much it might have been fun to go along the Appalachian Trail for a mile or so with my parents on a little hike!!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀
