Pre-Tease Monday

It’s Monday!   Time to PREPARE to Tease!

Come on inside the schoolroom boys and girls – it’s time to settle down!

Yep – put those caps on or you may wind up like this guy in the corner!!!

This week we are using one of my Mom and Dad’s photos…………….and it’s my Dad you see in the photo.    I suppose you can GUESS who is taking the picture?    Anyway, you will see it tomorrow and figure it out in no time I’m sure.   I want to tell you the TEASER rules first though!

  1. We ask everyone NOT to use any “help” with figuring out WHERE the photo was taken – i.e., GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH or something along those lines.   If you don’t use any “help” then everyone is on the same playing field – just study the photo and make your best guess using your eyeballs, not some computer program!!
  2. You must guess the TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE as well as the STATE (if USA) or COUNTRY (if not USA) where the photo was taken………Yep – we want the whole thing!!

So now you know the rules – but to really FIRE YOU up and prepare you for tomorrow, SuzieQ would like to grab your ears and fill them with poetry to inspire you for tomorrow’s Teaser………are you ready for her???   Some say that SuzieQ can best be described as “an acquired taste”……….hahaha

Ricky Ticky Tizzy
Cheering makes me dizzy
But I’ll do my best to inspire
While in my uniform I perspire
This cheer will be a quickie
It’s too darn hot and sticky
Leaping around in the heat
Gives me blisters on my feet
Show up in class in the morning
THIS IS YOUR OFFICIAL WARNING
Miss Dingleberry is cookin’
ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME GOOD LOOKIN’ ??????

Alright Suzie – I’m sure everyone will be here without fail.   Just remember that class will be at a SURPRISE time tomorrow so have one ear tuned to the computer/phone, etc. for the arrival of the TEASER!    First one to COMMENT tomorrow gets this to display on their blog/page, etc. – LUCKY DUCKY!

If there’s more than one FIRST COMMENTER in the first 60 seconds we are live, everyone who comments in that minute gets a badge!  WOOT!     Then we have other badges you might win but I’ll tell you in class tomorrow about THOSE!

Now before you are excused go to out to the playground for recess, the school principal asked me to make a couple of announcements!

Announcements are scary…..

This Friday, September 29th we are guest hosting Bacon’s SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD post………………you will still link to his blog so his Mom can collect the recipes BUT we are hosting so we are reminding today!  Got it?    What are we doing this month for SHOPPING?    Well it happens to be one of my (and my Mom’s) favorite things in the world!!!

DESSERT  !!!!!

Yep – what’s another fabulous dessert creation you make that you just know the rest of us mere mortals would love to know how you make it – AND we also want to know what you PAID for all the ingredients in the recipe!   That’s the point of SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD – not just to get some good recipes but to find out what YOU are paying for the stuff that we might be paying more or less for.    WE WANNA KNOW…….WHY?   Because we are NOSY!      You will link your post to PIGLOVE.   Are we clear?   Yep?  Good!

SECOND Announcement is that this coming Saturday, September 30th Teddy and I are co-hosting the BACON HARVEST – it’s ready for picking and YOU can join in the fun if you want to – dress up in your finest “harvest wear” and send us your photo.    We’ll include you in the fun.    I’m going to repost the photos of the greenhouse, some clothes if you need them and some interior shots of the bacon crop and you can photoshop yourselves silly and send us the pix for the BLOG POST here on Saturday!   COOL?  Yeah I think so too!!!!

Our greenhouse from the outside

Bacon in bloom!

Bacon plants far as the eye can see!!!!!

After Harvesting we’ll have FOOD (including bacon of course)

SO, just email me your photos all gussied up in your harvest-wear and in a scene if you wish from above or one you find on your own – and we will include you in the fun!   OKEE DOKEE?   Questions?  Just leave them in comments…….DEADLINE TO SUBMIT PHOTOS IS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28th!!!

WATCH OUT – COMIN’ THROUGH!!!

CLASS IS DISMISSED UNTIL TOMORROW!

P.S.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MOM FROM YOUR ANGEL BOY SAM AND TEDDY TOO!!

Memorial Day Pre-Tease Monday

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

Teaser Tell All

Oh boy…….now we can tell you the scoop on the Teaser!

Hello students!   Welcome back.  I know you’re just dying to know the deal on yesterday’s photos right?   I’m sure you and our “studio audience” out in the blogosphere want to know all the details.

First of all, our FIRST COMMENTERS yesterday on the blog were:

Da Phenny, and Calvin/Oliver !

Good for you guys!   You were right on time and all of you get one of these little gems:

I was a FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser on May 16, 2017

Bravo!

Now before I get into the other winners – I want to give a SHOUT OUT to the Guest Teaser for our fabulous Teaser this week.    It was my Mom’s super good friend Miss Dianna from These Days of Mine and I’m going to show you the photos she sent in BEFORE I tell you where the photos were taken by her and her husband!

These are a closeup view and a distant view of the amazing looking Gillette Castle in Gillette State Park near East Haddam, CT in the good old US OF A!    Isn’t it amazing?   I have a couple of ways you can research it a bit more and one of them is by clicking HERE for the original blog post Miss Dianna did when she and her husband and some friends visited the Castle.    You can also go HERE.    There are some beautiful photos of the INTERIOR of the Castle but the whole story about the place is really fascinating to read.   THANK YOU MISS DIANNA!    This badge is for you:

For Dianna of These Days of Mine for the Teaser Photos of May 16, 2017

Now who was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER?    I am happy to say that someone who was a FIRST COMMENTER was also the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER yesterday and that was Calvin/Oliver and their Mom Miss Melissa!    WOOOO HOOOOOOO!   You guys get this:

A whole bunch of you ALSO guessed Gillette Castle and all of you who did get one of these:

Those of you who bravely put your hand up and made a guess that turned out to be WRONG………………you still get something for your effort and here it is:

Congratulations to everyone – this was a fascinating Teaser and a fun one too!    I hope you will join me in looking FORWARD to next week’s Teaser – because we have another doozy for you…………and it’s also a GUEST TEASER…………..WOO HOO!

Class Dismissed!

Angel Professor Sammy and Assistant Prof Teddy (at your service!)

P.S.  Tomorrow is Thoroughly Poetic Thursday – our letter this week is “W” – have you written your poem??????  

Pre-Tease Monday

It’s Pre-Tease Monday!

Yeah – I just said that!   So it’s time to get you READY for tomorrow’s Tuesday Teaser.

If you are new to my Tuesday blog – every week we post a photo that is either one of OUR OWN photos from my Mom and Dad’s many trips, OR it’s a photo that was sent in to us by one of our adoring fans (tee hee) – that’s YOU!    If it’s not ours, we call it a GUEST TEASER – they are almost always tougher to guess.   You will take a look at the photo and give me your guess as to WHERE the photo was taken – what town/city/village as well as what state (if USA) or country (if not USA) – and you must have that information in your guess.

So now you’re ready for tomorrow right?   No?   Not quite?   Purrrrrhaps if we ask our Teaser Cheerleader SuzieQ to give you a cheer it will put you IN THE MOOD????

Bingo Bango Bavaria
Don’t dare give me malaria!
If you breathe on me and make me sick
I’ll smack you with a great big stick!
What’s that got to do with teasing?
Some weirdos find pain pleasing…..
I’m getting a bit off-track
Professor Sammy might give me a smack…..
Just let me say I’ll be waiting
For you to guess then we’ll be celebrating!
We’ll go have some mojitos
And several pounds of yummy doritos!
I’ll see you Tuesday RIGHT HERE
And I’ll be doing another swell cheer!

Thanks Suzie – no doubt everyone is FIRED UP now……………………….Class, please also remember that the Teaser photo blog post will NOT BE popping up in your inbox at the same time as we ALWAYS publish this blog.    It will be at a SURPRISE TIME…….you’ll never know WHEN………so stand by……….you may want to put your pillow by your computer so you’ll be READY when the email notice arrives!    Gotta be ALERT to win around here!

Remember the early bird catches the worm!  

YOU ALL HEAR THAT??? BE READY! OR ELSE….

Professor Sammy, Sarge scared me and now I have to go to the litterbox!

Go ahead Bobby – hurry back though.

Nice to use the litterbox without SARGE timing me!

So I’ll see everyone here tomorrow at some surprise time…………….remember whoever COMMENTS first on tomorrow’s Teaser post will win this:

Then there are other prizes for FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, RIGHT GUESSER BUT NOT FIRST and of course WRONG GUESSER (or as we call it, the ever popular GREENIE!).

See you tomorrow kids! 

Professor Angel Sammy and Assistant Professor Teddy

Pre-Tease Monday

Here We Go Again!

Hello Class………….please have a seat and we’ll get started with Monday’s pre-teasing…………..you all know the drill by now though.    Tomorrow at a SECRET time, our blog posts will go up and class will begin and we will see the TEASER PHOTO!    It’s a GUEST TEASER again tomorrow so be purrrrpared.

The first person to COMMENT on the post will be our FIRST COMMENTER and get a badge!    Then of course it’s up to the guessers to take over and we have prizes for all of them too – FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, RIGHT GUESSER NOT FIRST, and THE GREENIE BRIGADE (wrong guessers).

Sarge?    Any words for class today?

BE ALERT TOMORROW – STUDY UP TONIGHT – NO SLEEpING IN CLASS!

Thank you Sarge….what would we do without you?????

Professor Sammy I know the answer to THAT question but I’m afraid to answer it……….

I know Bobby………….We ALL are!!!!

Suzie?  Want to pump up the volume and get this lazy classroom of students ready for tomorrow’s challenge???

The Teaser is from a GUEST
Those are harder than the rest!
So you’d better hit the books
Or I’ll give you a NASTY look!
Don’t make me be a meanie
Or make me pouty and screamy
Good luck to all you Tease-buddies
Including all old fuddy-duddies!

Thanks Suzie for getting us all PURRRRRPARED for tomorrow.    Not only will we have our photo to guess but I will share some other photos too AND announce a BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT that our Assistant Professor Teddy – my little brother – has under his belt (yes I know he doesn’t wear a belt….just sayin’ )!

See You “Sometime” Tomorrow!

Angel Professor Sam…………

P.S.  (with great sadness)  

We learned that our beautiful and special friend Queen Nellie has left all of us and joined my big brother Angel Sammy at the Rainbow Bridge………..Angel Sammy was there to give her a great big hug along with all the other friends and her own family who had left before her.    She looks beautiful in her Angel Wings…….and she of course misses her Mommy most of all.   Nellie was one of a kind and will definitely live on in the blogosphere and especially our hearts FOREVER………

Farewell Angel Nellie……..You are the most beautiful Angel of all……….

Pre-Tease Monday

OK Class – what day is it?

I know – I know – I know – I know – I know……..

YES WE KNOW YOU KNOW!!!

Welcome class…….we’re getting ready for tomorrow’s photo challenge so please make sure you study up tonight…………….who knows what corner of the world we will explore tomorrow but I can tell you it will be a GUEST TEASER again…………..no worries – not as awful as MONACO was last week I promise……….really…………..truly.

Remember that whoever comments on the post tomorrow FIRST will win the FIRST COMMENTER AWARD…………..and we will WAIT a little while before announcing who wins so we don’t have to award any SAM BOO BOO badges (hahahaha) like last week so be patient…………..OK?    The post will go live at some time that’s a SECRET so don’t ask me because I can’t tell.

Now how about a little pre-tease cheer from the ever-bubbly, ever-unpredictable Suzie!??????

Tomorrow is the TEST
I promise not to jest
If you’re right you will be blessed
If you’re wrong you’ll be a mess
The photo might be hard
But I’ll send you a sympathy card
Be brave and guess away
You know I then will say
BRAVO YOU’RE OUR HERO
The rest of you are ZERO!

Oh dear………..that was one of your more “unkind” efforts Suzie but people love you even if you’re CRUEL so thank you for the cheer – crowd?  What do you think of today’s cheer?

Some of you aren’t too sure………..

But most of you approve!

On that HIGH NOTE, Class is adjourned!!

Angel Professor Sam and his sidekick Assistant Teddy

P.S.               Make sure you’re here when you get the DING on your computer/phone, etc. that there’s a post from US – because then it will be ON!!!    One of the badges might be yours!

 

 

Pre-Tease Monday

Happy Pre-Tease Monday Teaser Fans!

The day before the BIG DAY and your chance to start fine-tuning your geography skills and making sure your eyes are well rested………because you’ll need all your skills tomorrow when we post our Teaser photo of the week!    Please remember also that the post is going to pop up some time that you can’t BET ON because Mom is the only one who knows what time it will go LIVE.   Who knows what she’ll pick…….6AM?  4AM?  Nobody knows!!!

When you first get the blog post though remember to pop right into comments and let us know you’re THERE – why?  Because you will probably be our FIRST COMMENTER!    WHeeee!

Are you in the mood for a Monday Pre-Tease SuzieQ cheer?    Maybe you have a bad case of the “MONDAYS” and need a little something to perk yourself up?   Suzie can do that!

Monday stinks
That’s what we all think!
The drudgery begins
The agony never ends
We slave at work all day
For hardly ANY pay
I think we should all complain
Before we go insane
Go tell your boss right now
That he’s a mean old cow!
Tell him that you are TIRED
Then you’ll probably get FIRED
This cheer was an April Fools joke
I just thought I’d give you all a good poke!
(yes I know I’m a coupla days late-so sue me!)

Ahhhhh……thanks Suzie.   That was truly inspirational.    It was also UNTIMELY since April Fools was a couple of days ago but who’s counting right?    It’s the THOUGHT that counts!

Suzie that cheer stunk……

Oh Sarge now that’s not nice………..Suzie was trying to get everyone READY for tomorrow’s Teaser…….in her own special way.

So Assistant Professor Teddy and I will be looking for you in class tomorrow………………you’d best be here………………if not, Sarge might come looking for you and I don’t think you want that to happen.

Yeah I didn’t think so……………………….

See you tomorrow class!

Angel Professor Sammy
