One Spoiled Cat will be back tomorrow!
Welcome to Geography class students……I know you look forward each and every week to the excitement of Tuesday classes when you can exercise your knowledge of the globe and figure out WHERE the photo we will give you to examine was taken! Challenging right? A brain exerciser right? Well then let’s get started Okee Dokee????
Today’s photo teaser is a GUEST TEASER…….that’s right – someone has sent this photo in for us to take a peek at and see if we recognize anything enough to make an intelligent (or even semi-intelligent) guess as to WHERE it was snapped.
Before we get started, let me remind you that all guesses must be TOTALLY RIGHT to be counted for “First Right Guesser”…..in other words, I have to know just where the photo was taken – what city/town/location/state/country – Can’t say “On a Mountain” or “In A Tree” or “On Top Of Old Smokey”………..OK? I gotta know how much YOU know about this photo.
If you are the FIRST to just plain COMMENT on this blog this morning – you will win this!
So comment then come back here and see if you know what the scoop on today’s photo might be!!!!
Now, most of you know that our Teaser Cheerleader, SuzieQ, has had some – well – let’s be honest about it – PROBLEMS with her cheers for a while now. She can’t seem to manage a cheer without an insult about ME or YOU or any number of things – she just had to get a jab or two into her cheer or she wasn’t happy. So, at great expense we sent SuzieQ off to “Cheerleader Rehab” where we hoped that this little “cheerleader gone bad” could learn the error of her ways and come back to us with a cheery attitude and LOVE in her little heart for the universe, thereby rendering nasty cheer impossible for her to construct. This is the first time we’ll have a chance to hear the results of the rehab…………….I thought you might like to see some of the other staff at the Rehab center – and here they are…..starting with the Counselor who worked directly with SuzieQ every single day:
Then there were her Assistant Counselors:
The Rehab facility just OOOOOOZES “sweet” so we know it HAD to have an effect on Suzie. So without further ado……….let’s bring SuzieQ in for her first “post-rehab” cheer!!!
Suzie, you’re WORSE than ever! You may be excused from class and I’ll give Counselor Grizelda a
piece of my mind phone call after class regarding her SO-CALLED rehab counseling!
Let’s quickly move on to Mr. Silver Briefcase who will show you today’s photo while I – er – um – pull myself together!
Get those guesses in…………..you know you wanna win a badge! Here’s what’s for grabs!
FIRST RIGHT GUESSER
RIGHT GUESSER (but not first)
WRONG – NO CLUE !!!!!
So get to work…………….search your maps, brochures, old travel photos, WHATEVER and see if you can guess where this photo was taken………………….GOOD LUCK CLASS (speaking of luck, Suzie will need all the luck she can get to be in our classroom next week!!!!!!).
See you tomorrow for the handing out of badges – GOOD LUCK!
Yeah, let’s just do it and get it over with right? Let’s post the photo, let you agonize over it, figure it out and GUESS and then we can move on to the FUN STUFF like awarding badges! However if I just plain POST today’s photo(s), you’d miss seeing Suzie Q and Mr. Silver Briefcase, wouldn’t you? Well OF COURSE YOU WOULD…………..
Oh yah – before I forget – remember whoever is the FIRST PERSON to comment on this blog – THIS VERY BLOG – this morning will win this:
So go ahead – COMMENT!
Now let’s get that little cheerleader of ours out here for a bit of a pom-pom shake-up! Suzi?????
We wouldn’t EVER forget you Suzi…………now let’s bring on Mr. Silver Briefcase for the BIG MOMENT……..Show us the STUFF in the briefcase DOOD!
Where were my Mom and Dad when Mom snapped this photo of Dad having a brewski AND the pretty fountain in the other photo? HMM? I need to know what country/state and what actual location they were when the flash went off………..that’s right…………details! GO FOR IT!
You’ll win one of the COOL Teaser badges if you are first right guesser or just right and not first, and if you lose big time by not knowing or guessing WRONG, you win a BIG GREENIE – but you’ll find all that out tomorrow when we do our Teaser Tell All…………………
C’mon – let’s see whatcha got?!!!!!!
ALRIGHT! Sharp as a tack you all are with the Teasers lately……..doesn’t take you long to figure things out does it?!?!?! I’ll give you all the scoop in a minute but first a word from our sponsor (haha just kidding)………..here’s the photo from yesterday – Mr. Mystery Dude – will you bring the silver suitcase in PURRRRRLEASE?
Thanks! Here’s the photo!
Beautiful buildings yes? Well, this photo was taken by the humans belonging to my friend Gracie of Goodness Gracie blog when they were on a trip to VENICE, ITALY – it’s the ISLAND OF BURANO which is known as the spot where lace is made AND where a whole lot of fishermen live. The colorful homes are a tradition – so the men of the sea living on Burano could recognize their homes when they came back from a long fishing trip! Cool huh? THANK YOU GRACIE and THANKS TO YOUR HUMANS! This is for you:
So who was my FIRST COMMENTER? Well it was the ever-alert no matter what time of the day it is friend Easy! You were on the ball this morning my friend – WOOT! This is yours:
Who was our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER today? It was my friend in Devon, UK – Flynn from Two Devon Cats. WAY TO GO Flynn – his Mom and Dad visited Venice on a vacation and saw the islands just like my Mom and Dad did a bazillion years ago on their honeymoon! This is for you Flynn:
Several others guessed right – I’m so proud of you! You get this:
Even if you did NOT guess right, or did NOT have a clue, you still get something……yes indeedy – you get THE BIG GREENIE!
Everybody wins…………..Tuesdays are so way cool don’t you think? See you next week? Same time? Same day? Same frustrations?
Pee Ess…..for those of you waiting for my blood results to come back – doc says I have to increase my thyroid meds……instead of one pill a day I now have to have one and a HALF pills a day – that’s right two excuses to get my Gerber baby food treat !!!! My current fave is turkey with turkey gravy baby food so Mom will be giving that to me at breakfast AND dinner – good deal huh? Everything else looks GREAT he says….liver, kidneys, blood glucose – all good. Just my pesky thyroid and he thinks that’s got something to do with my weight loss too.
THANK YOU FOR WORRYING ABOUT ME!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!
Teaser Fans your wait is now over officially……….yep – we have a FIRST RIGHT GUESSER (and he guessed right shortly after we went LIVE with the Teaser this morning!!)……………..but first, here’s an instant replay of the two photos you all had to view and guess:
This is the Rossio Train Station in Lisbon, Portugal! Pretty building isn’t it? AND YES YOU SMARTY PANTS PEEPS – that is Leo in the right hand bottom corner of the photo. HAHAHA Know why he’s there? Because this Teaser and the Tell All you’re about to see were done by My Three Moggie’s Mom Michelle and her husband Craig when they went to watch Leo run in a race in Lisbon recently!!! Ready for the Tell All Video?
Michelle, this is yours for being my fabulous Guest Teaser:
Easy this is yours for being the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER (The King of Teasers is BACK ladies and gentlemen!):
There were A BUNCH of you who also guessed Portugal or even the correct Train Station and you lucky peeps get this:
Were you clueless? No worries…………….I love you anyway and you get THE BIG GREENIE!
Tune in next Tuesday for another chance to be right (or wrong) on my fabulous weekly fun guessing where a photo was taken………………..and learning a little more about this great big world we live in too!
Hear ye. hear ye……….the time has come to enter the kingdom of Teasing for this week so are you prepared to take a peek at today’s photo???? Tomorrow I’ll give you particulars on it of course AND let you know WHO was the First Right Guesser of where this photo was taken……and of course if any of the rest of you guess correctly – you will still get a HUG……..and those of you who are in the “epic fail” department get something too!! Lucky?? You betcha!
So, here’s today’s Teaser!
Now, please let me know where you think this photo was snapped……………My Mom has been here, Dad hasn’t. Not much of a clue right? Tee Hee Well, give it your best shot – and of course hurry and submit your guess – you don’t want to miss out on this little gem right?
And even if you think you’re too late to be first, but you just plain KNOW (or think you do), you will get this:
You folks who are clueless or guess and are epic fails (tee hee), you’ll get this one!
WOW! That was some Teaser yesterday huh? I had some fabulous guesses though I have to admit………..and I have to say before I finish writing this post and scheduling it for the morning that as of RIGHT NOW (3PM EST) nobody has guessed it. Nobody has been even close……….. but tomorrow when my Mom gets herself awake enough to help me get to the computer (maybe 6AM EST) I’ll take a quick peek at other guesses that came in from 3PM to midnight EST to see if anyone HAS guessed it, and I’ll be sure to do an EMERGENCY POST to announce it! OK? Is it a deal??
Wanna see the photo one last time????
Now first of all I want to THANK (and hug) my “Guest” who provided this magnificent photo – which I do believe she probably took on one of her walking vacations in (ready?) Northern Ireland! That mountain you see in the photo is part of the Mourne Mountains. There’s several great websites with info on this pretty and popular walk/hike/visit but I found info at http://visitmournemountains.co.uk. WHO was my “Guest” ? My good friend Isobel from the UK who has TWO blogs – one called IsobelandCat (she’s got a very handsome ginger boy like me!) and the other is GuidedbyIsobel (Isobel is a guide in London among other things!).
So, as I said, nobody had guessed Ireland much less Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland as of this writing SO, for now anyway, I WIN I WIN I WIN! The rest of you dear friends get this little gem:
Since this is a shorter post than it would have been if I was posting awards for the Teaser (ahem), I’m gonna move right into the Sunshine Picnic Award badge that my beautiful friend Nellie gave me when she invited me to come to her pawsome picnic. If you want to have your OWN picnic and pass on this pretty badge, all you have to do is invite the person who invited YOU to be your “special guest”, then pick ten friends to invite and give them something to bring to the picnic as their contribution! Fun huh????
Nellie – I hope you will be my special guest……….and the rest of my ten guests and what I’d like them to bring are:
Kitties Blue – and the thing I’d like for YOU to bring to this fabulous picnic would be some of those wonderful food bowls like the one I received from your Mom – that would be an elegant addition to the picnic for us to eat from!
Sundae (my girlcatfriend) from These Days of Mine – Sundae, purrrhaps your Mom will let you bring one or two of those nice cozy quilts that you take naps on so we can sit on them in the grass at our picnic?
Fozziemum – I think what I’d most like you to bring to my picnic would be some of that nice HOT WEATHER you have “Down Under” right now because we’re freezing our tushies off here!
Mollie and Alfie – how about you guys bringing an assortment of treats like the ones your Mom bakes? Only maybe some for all kinds of creatures because I’ve got guinea pigs, humans, cats AND dogs invited to this picnic!
Oscar of Lessons With Oscar – first of all Oscar, you can come with your human because I know you’re blind and might not want to travel to my picnic alone…..so THAT can be what you bring to the picnic – your Mom!!
Boomdeeadda – oh Miss Boomdee….there are so many things I could ask you to bring but I think they would all just HAVE to be aqua-colored (!!) but since you are so VERY crafty, how about you making placecards for us at our spots on the quilt for our picnic???
Two Blind Cats and Crew – you all are some of my newest friends and I know you guys are also sight-challenged like my friend Oscar, so I think it only fair that YOU bring your human Mom along too…..I don’t want anyone getting lost on their way here!
Bowie – my friend Bowie, I can’t think of anything better for you to contribute to our picnic than some expresso and plenty of DARK CHOCOLATE for dessert!
Hutch A Good Life – oh I just know that I can rely on you guys to bring a nice big tray of very healthy veggies for everyone to munch on – how’s that for your contribution???
Misaki – how about bringing some of your toys to share with everyone Misaki? I know you must have a giant toybox full of fun stuff…………!
I could go on and on and on inviting more of my friends BUT I want to leave some for YOU to invite to YOUR picnic if you decide to have one. I know my picnic will be perfect if all of you come and I also know that having Nellie here will be the crème de la crème !
Those of you busily working on your spacesuits or hotel rooms or monsters, know that if you’ve forgotten the details for our upcoming TRIP TO THE MOON, you can revisit the post for those details RIGHT HERE!!!
