Teaser Tell All Time!!

Standard

YES!   Today is the last day we will have to wear turkeys on our head and we are very happy about that.   We’ve had feathers get stuck in our ears, foot smudges on our glasses (Angel Sammy anyway), and a whole lot of NOISE with all that “gobblegobblegobble” stuff.   At last we are FREEEEE!

But enough about us………..today is all about YOU!     You and the Teaser we had yesterday which – we are thrilled to say – FOOLED EVERYONE (at least as of time we’re doing this post!).

First, let’s tell you who our FIRST COMMENTER was…………………..and let me say that this is the SECOND WEEK in a row she’s been FIRST COMMENTER – and was the only FIRST COMMENTER last week and again this week.  No sharing of the badge with anyone………….who is this wonder woman??????

 

Whoo????

 

Miss Sharon of FRIENDS FUREVER!!

AND THE CROWD GOES WILD!!!!!!

Miss Sharon you get a SPECIAL badge this week:

Then we sat back and watched the guessing action…………waiting…………..waiting…………..watching…………….and as of time we went to press with this TELL ALL post, nobody had guessed it – BUT we will certainly FIX that if we come back this morning and find someone DID figure it out!    But as of now…….nobody has – we CAN tell you who sent this wonderful GEM of a Teaser photo in though!

This fabulous photo was snapped by Miss Jackie of TWO DEVON CATS…………..she and her husband were on the other side of the River Nervion in Bilbao, Spain standing outside the Guggenheim Museum looking across to the other side………admiring (no doubt) the beautiful trees!    Below are two other photos she took at the same location – one looking to the left and one looking to the right.

 

Thank you Miss Jackie – this was a REAL TEASER of a TEASER!!   Here’s a thank you badge from US to YOU!

 

My fabulous photo was featured on the Tuesday Teaser of November 20, 2018!

 

POOEY!   I guess we ALL get GREENIES!!

Lots of you are going to be eligible for our world famous GREENIE this week………….so please………..help yourself to a copy of the special Thanksgiving GREENIE and wear it in good health!

I did NOT guess the special Thanksgiving Teaser photo of November 20, 2018 but I tried – and that’s what’s important right? Right!

 

Here are our cute little Cheer Team members – ready to knock your socks off with a cheer for the occasion!

Yes we’re turkeys and we’re not happy
These suits aren’t cute, they’re huge and flappy!
But we’ll try to be cheery and not be grumpy
Even though we look extremely dumpy.
Congrats to Miss Sharon for TWO FIRSTS IN A ROW!
She’s really hot – just watch her go!
As we write our cheer nobody has guessed the Teaser
I guess you could call this Teaser a big WHEEZER!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all and don’t overeat
Or you may find yourself away from the table and on the toilet seat!

Gosh Team…….that was depressing and inappropriate all rolled into one.    But what can I say – you all generally are on the edge of insanity with your cheers so why should this be any different?????

Anyway, congratulations to everyone whether you WON or LOST – everybody gets a badge………..we always have PLENTY of Greenies!!!!

I have a BIG greenie collection and one more won’t bother me one bit!

Shall we make our way to the cafeteria for Miss Dingleberry’s THANKSGIVING lunch?    I’m sure it will be delicious……………………and remember, our school first aid room is available if you find that you’ve overeaten and aren’t feeling very well.    Nurse Pinkerton will be standing by.

Happy Day Before Thanksgiving Students!  My staff and I hope you enjoy today’s FEAST!

Thank you Miss Dingleberry and thanks to your cafeteria staff too – it was a magnificent meal.   We Professors would like to wish EVERYONE a most wonderful Thanksgiving and if you aren’t celebrating THanksgiving in your part of the world, just know that we are very thankful you visit Ding Dong School….

Your Full of Turkey Professors, Angel Sammy and Teddy

Teaser Tell All

Standard

Let’s TELL It All !!  

Hello Teaser fans…………..we thought MAYBE we might just get a bunch of you to head down the WRONG garden path to an answer yesterday with the photo – it was a night time shot, there were horses so it looked kind of “Western-ish”…………..but instead of that, a whole PILE of you knew it right off the bat……………..but that’s leaping ahead a bit.  Let me back up and start at the beginning!

The first person to comment yesterday actually wasn’t just ONE person – we had THREE!    Who?

Oliver and Calvin and Miss Csilla

CONGRATULATIONS!

So why don’t I tell you NOW who my Guest Teaser was for the photo yesterday……………………….shall I?   Here’s the photo:

Pretty spectacular photo isn’t it???   Well it was sent in by our good friend Leo from WalkandPigOut and it was taken by him at the Hermitage of El Rocio, Almonte, Province of Huelva, in Andalusia, Spain.   You may know Leo and if you do you know not only does he travel a WHOLE LOT but he lives in Spain.   He says this location is often PACKED with people so we were lucky to be able to see it in a “non-super-busy” moment!   It’s such beautiful architecture……..we had several guesses that were correct but it fooled quite a few people too with some guesses that it was Mexico, or Texas – somewhere in the USA Southwest.   Thank you Leo!   This is for you:

For Leo on March 8, 2017

Now who was the smarty pants (or in this instance who were the multiple smarty-pants!) who guessed correctly FIRST????   We again had a tie – a perfect tie at the same minute as two answers arrived that were right at 8:20AM my time.   Who?

Oliver and Calvin (YES AGAIN!) and Friends Furever!

CONGRATULATIONS!

You both get one of these:

AND then there were SEVERAL others who guessed correctly, and each of you gets this:

AND of course we have the GREENIE BRIGADE which consists of those of you who were WRONG – you get this:

If you came here and looked at the photo and made a guess – you’re a winner in our book anyway! 

Now here’s a bit of a confession from my Mom…………..yesterday a couple of comments went into our WordPress “PENDING” file and Mom didn’t see them right away – so she told someone ELSE that THEY had been first when they actually hadn’t – the two “PENDING” comments were first!     She (and we!) felt bad about that so we want to give Flynn and his Mum Miss Jackie this HONORABLE MENTION because Mom screwed up made a boo boo and had them thinking they were first……………..SORRY FLYNN AND MISS JACKIE!!!

For Flynn and Miss Jackie because Mom made a boo boo on 3/8/2017

Tomorrow we have our weekly poetry challenge – we’re getting through the alphabet for the second time and this week we arrive at the letter “M”…………….just write a poem about something starting with the letter “M” and post a link to your poem in my comments tomorrow OR you can even just write your poem in my comments and SHARE with everyone here!!!   YAY!

See you tomorrow?  I hope so!

As to where we will be NEXT Tuesday in this big wide world, I can’t tell you BUT it will be another Guest Teaser – I have the photo already………….so be purrrrpared for a toughie!

Love, Angel Prof Sammy (and Teddy too)

P.S.  Here’s a badge you can put on your blog if you wanna tell the world you’re a TEASER FAN!

I’m holding off on that “Almost Right” badge for a while until I get things figured out so it’s FAIR to award it to someone.   OK?  OK!   We may just put that on the BACK BURNER (ouch I burned my paw!).

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome for my new little brother too – Teddy is loving living with my Mom and Dad and I’ll do a post all about him on Thursday or Friday.   Here’s an updated photo of the little booger sucking up to Dad on the couch in Mom’s office…..YES – he’s actually HOLDING on to my Dad’s arm and hand!    Also, if any of you are interested in pawticipating in the WELCOME TEDDY Blog Hop on February 19th, CLICK HERE because the LINKY is open for you to sign up!!!   Just scroll down the page past the other hops and find the TEDDY WELCOME hop!

Holy Mackerel!   I knew it was a TOUGHIE but somehow I thought someone would guess it……………because they’d been there on a tour or SOMETHING…………..but as of yesterday evening when I took a break from the computer after Mom and Dad had deserted me ALL DAY (sniff), nobody had guessed the Teaser.

Well, first things first anyway…………..I had a TIE for FIRST COMMENTER!   That’s right – good old FAST DRAW EASY and Miss Jan from Wag-N-Woof Pets TIED by commenting the first minute the Teaser went live!   Each of you get one of these little beauties!   Concatulations!

Hello Teaser Buddies!    That was a GOODIE yes?  I told you it was………and I did NOT lead you astray……..but I might have fooled you just a little bit and I’ll explain WHY after Mr. Silver Briefcase shows you the photo one more time!

Here's the photo from yesterday!

Thank you SIR!!!!    So – here’s the photo.

TEASERDEC1-2015

Where was it taken and by whom????    It’s a narrow alley way which is what you see when an elevator takes you from the LOWER part of the city to the UPPER part of the city in Mojacar, Almeria, Spain.   Does Almeria sound familiar?  Hmm?  Well it might because a few weeks ago, we had a photo from Almeria courtesy of (drum roll please) Leo of WalkToRio2016 blog!    THIS is another of his photos from that particular trip.   THANK YOU LEO!   Here’s your reward my friend:

Thank you Leo!

Thank you Leo!

Now who was my FIRST COMMENTER for Teaser this week?   It was our friend Kolytyi whose blog is HERE !   You get this for your trouble:

TEASERWINNER2015-4

WHO was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER?   That’s a good question because the answer is NOBODY.   That’s right – so that means yours truly is the WINNER this week!

SamTeaserWinner

BUT there were quite a few of you who earned a GREENIE this week and this is for all of you!

TEASERWINNER2015-1

Wasn’t that a great Teaser?  We had a LOT of great guesses too…….Greece, Italy, even some who guessed Spain and a couple who guessed CLOSE to correct – so CLOSE that I had to send Leo a message on Facebook to ask him to take a peek at a couple of your answers and he confirmed that they were NOT right!!

SADKITTY

Next week I owe you an easy one…………don’t you think?   Purrrrhaps I’ll do that (or not!).    After all, you guys are good at this and usually someone gets it so maybe I’ll keep it tough!   You like a challenge right?

Say – that was a pretty darn good Teaser yesterday don’t you think?   Oh I enjoyed watching the guesses coming in……..it was great………so many thoughtful guesses this week!!   Ready to hear the details like WHO was our Guest Teaser and WHERE were the photos taken????

First, here are the Teaser photos you had to agonize over yesterday:

 TEASERFeb24-2015-2 TEASERFeb24-2015-1

Our Guest Teaser was the beautiful Clowie from Clowie’s Corner and the photos were of Castellfollit de la Roca in Catalonia, Spain!   Here’s your GUEST TEASER Badge Clowie, and I’m also going to post some of the details you gave me about this fascinating and beautiful spot!

Thanks Austin and Miss Carolyn!

Thanks Clowie!

From Clowie:   “Castellfollit de la Roca is on a narrow crag of basalt rock, between two rivers – Fluvià and Toronell. The steep cliffs were formed by the rivers eroding the volcanic rock.  Many of the buildings date from mediaeval times and are built from volcanic rock. The position gives panoramic views, making it a good defensive position. The inhabitants farmed the flatter, fertile land on the sides of the rivers below them There is now a small, modern town below the old town. It is easy to stroll from there up to the old town and wander along the narrow street between the houses. The views from the end by the church are worth the walk!  Castellfollit de la Roca is on the edge of the Garrotxa Volcanic Area Natural Park. There are about 40 volcanic cones within the park, but they are no longer active – the last eruption was around 11,000 years ago. The scenery is spectacular and there are many old villages to explore in the area. ”   (thanks Clowie!!)

WHO WAS THE FIRST COMMENTER yesterday?   They don’t have a blog but they’ve followed my blog for a while now – my friends Oliver and Calvin – this is for you boys:

WHO WAS THE FIRST RIGHT GUESSER yesterday?   Unbelievably (and I know you all think that this guy is my alter ego so knows where the Teaser is every week!!!) – my buddy and pal EASY!   This is for you my friend……………………..

I think yesterday’s Teaser was a bit difficult after all thanks to all that white-washed/stucco architecture and rather tropical-ish touch here and there…….here’s the photo one last time and then I’ll give you the SCOOP!
