Teaser Tuesday

Standard

Ringy Dingy Ding Dong School!

Time for class everyone – but before we start – QUICK – comment on this blog so you can win a special FIRST COMMENTER badge for today!!!!

Alright – settle down youz guys – the Profs are IN THE BUILDING!

Hello Class! Happy Pre-Thanksgiving Teaser Day!

Even though Thanksgiving here isn’t until Thursday, we couldn’t let the week go by without celebrating it here in class.    We have special Thanksgiving badges to award to the lucky (or not so lucky) guessers for today’s photo guessing contest AND some turkey goodies courtesy of Miss Dingleberry and her school cafeteria staff.    SO, let’s get class started shall we?

TURKEY?????? OH BOY!!!!!!

TURKEY MAKES ME HAPPY!!!

Today we have a Guest Teaser and I’ll go over our guessing rules before we show you the photo.

  1. When you make a guess where the photo was taken, you must include in your guess what TOWN/CITY/VILLAGE as well as what STATE (if USA) or COUNTRY (if not USA) what location is depicted in the photo!
  2. We ask that you not use Google Image Search or some other program to tell you WHERE the photo was taken – it’s lots more fun to try and figure it out on your own – right?   Right!    That way everyone has an equal chance.

Here are the badges up for grabs today – and tomorrow when we do the TELL ALL here in class you will find out who wins what!

Let’s bring in our ever sharp Security Guard who has been guarding the locked up photo so nobody can SNEAK A PEEK………….

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted

Pretty right?   BUT WHERE IS THIS?????????    That is the question of the day!    Just make your guess in our comments and we’ll let you know the SCOOP tomorrow in class.

Let’s bring in our fabulous Cheer Team to get all of you pumped up for guessing shall we?   Nobody can “get the party started” like Suzie and her new sidekick Lucy!

WOO HOOOOO!

Arfity Bark Aroooo
Lucy and I welcome YOU!
It’s time for us to TEASE
Grrrr Arffff WHEEZE
We know that we’re darn cute!
Arrrrooooooooooo POOT
Tomorrow we’ll tell you who wins
While we watch Lucy’s head as it spins!
GOOD LUCK
BARK BARK BUCK

Gosh ladies, I really don’t quite know what to say…………………maybe the best thing is to say THANK YOU and that we will be THANKFUL when Lucy’s language skills improve but not to discourage her because she’s making progress!     That’s definitely a paw step in the RIGHT direction!

Miss Dingleberry has set up a wonderful turkey surprise for all of us out in the hallway and if you wish to have a snack before you bundle up in your coats and go out to the playground for recess, please stop by her booth.    It’s our little way of celebrating Thanksgiving a few days early!      *****loudly whispers***** and if you are wise, dear students, you won’t make any comments about Miss Dingleberry’s choice of hat – OK???????

Enjoy!  See you tomorrow class!

Bacon and Bashful

Standard

Hi Everybody!    Well, I survived being left alone on Thanksgiving just fine…………all was forgiven when (1) Mom and Dad arrived home yesterday with LEFTOVERS from their Thanksgiving feast in W. Virginia, and (2) when I got my usual Saturday bacon this morning!    I can forgive just about anything if I get TREATs to take my mind off the fact they LEFT ME ALONE.

My pal Bashful (the rolling rock from HERE) accompanied my Mom and Dad up to W. Virginia and he spent all afternoon chattering up a storm telling me every little PAINSTAKING detail of the time he had.   Apparently he enjoyed every minute of his day.   He started out at my Aunt Carol’s house where he and my Mom had cinnamon French toast for breakfast with Aunt Carol.

Dad was too busy with Aunt Carol's dog Toby who was talking Dad into throwing the red toy for him so he's not in the photo!

He was TRYING to be patient while Aunt Carol cut a small slice of French toast to fit on his small size plate but I can see that “glazed look” in his eyes because he was hungry!   What rock wouldn’t be having to be in a car for two hours to get to W. Virginia?

WHERE'S MY FRENCH TOAST??????

Anyway, after breakfast they went to the cabin which is only a mile or so away from Auntie Carol’s house……..Dad’s brother and his wife and their son were already there along with my Dad starting on the Thanksgiving celebration early while the turkey was still roasting in the oven!

Oh this is a nice little cottage to stay in for Thanksgiving in W. Virginia!!

When the turkey finally came out of the oven, Bashful offered to be the “taste tester” before everyone ate any of it – what a sacrifice huh?

Bashful was surrounded by ALLLLL that turkey - he got out of the way just in time when it was carved!

Obviously everything they all ate was pretty danged good because before Bashful could blink an eye, the meal was over and the food was eaten and it was a veritable WASTELAND of empty dishes all around the buffet table!

Where did it all go?

Yesterday morning after they all woke up from their turkey-comas, Mom and Dad and Bashful popped in the Buick and came home to ME ME ME – but Bashful just HAD to sit on the stair railing outside the cabin for one final sniff of mountain air as he bid a fond farewell to a FUN and FOOD-FILLED Thanksgiving!

Gosh - do we have to leave so soon? The sun isn't even up yet!!!!

Mom and Dad will be getting some of the Christmas stuff out of the basement this weekend – and you know what THAT means…………..my Elf on the Shelf (“Elfvis”) will be on the loose officially to torture us for the entire Christmas season with his traditional TROUBLEMAKING!    I have Bacon (Bashful’s brother) to thank for that Elf……….he sent Elfvis to us last Christmas!   EEEEEK!  Remember????

Ding Dong...Elfvis calling!

Ding Dong…Elfvis calling!  Uhoh….he’s HERE again!

 

Hope you have a wonderful Saturday everybody…………!
