103

It’s TIME Students……..time for you to COMMENT then have a seat!

Good Morning all.   Here we are again getting ready to agonize over a mystery photo yet again.   Rain or shine we carry on TEASING to the best of our ability.    Today is no exception of course and we have a goodie for you to figure out today.

I hope I don’t have to pull my hair out guessing!

No of course not.   Just relax and let your brain do the talking.   HAHAHA

As a reminder, here’s what’s at stake today – some badges and they are NEW ones so you just KNOW you want one of those right??????

Oh I’ve GOTTA get one of those!!

Here are the rules one last time for those of you who slept through yesterday’s preparatory class…………..

So what do you say we get our cheer team in here to pump up the volume – then bring in our Security Guard with the photo !

We love Ding Dong School
We sheep are VERY cool
On Tuesdays we have a TEST
To see what sheep is best
At guessing photo locations
Taken from people’s vacations!
The new badges look really super
So guess well and be a sheep trooper
If you can flash a brand new badge
You’ll scare the pants off Madge!!!!!!

We don’t want Madge to be without her pants!

Now Team I know you’re just teasing but really – Madge’s pants?    PULEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZE!

OK – bring on the Security Guard…………..we are READY!

FRONT AND CENTER SECURITY GUARD – BY THE WAY, I WEAR SKIRTS AND NOT PANTS!

 

Hello Professors and Class – here’s your challenge for today!

 

SO, where was this beauty taken????    Tomorrow in class we will let you know who wins what new badge…………………so study it hard………….no cheating………..no peeking at your neighbor’s scribbles on their notepaper….and above all no using Google Image Search – just do your best!

Now – who’s UP for pizza today?   I hear Miss Dingleberry is having a pizza extravaganza………………so we’ll see you tomorrow in class for the TELL ALL……….don’t eat too much pizza before going out on the playground equipment – or else!!

 

Alright all you sheep…….watch it……..don’t try to trip the student in front of you or behind you – just stand in line RESPECTFULLY and you’ll get all the pizza you can shove into your little sheep mouths……….ENJOY!

TODAY’S MENU

Good Luck!!    Your Profs

A P.S. of Remembrance………

I’m reposting the blog I did in September of 2011 – not that long after Angel Sammy and I began this blog……………..it was my recalling of where I was on 9/11 and what my husband and I were feeling and thinking as we were far from home when the tragedy occurred…………we were in Paris on vacation and all we wanted was to be HOME with Sammy and our family.     Below is a link to that old blog post………and of course every single year on this day David and I spend some time remembering how we felt then and how difficult it was to be so far away………….

Hugs, Pam

Teaser Tuesday Time

95

Time For Teaser!!!   Remember to COMMENT on your way to class!

Good Morning Students!  Please take your seats and settle down…..

Ready Sirs!

I hope you all commented because that’s very important – if you EVER want to win the FIRST COMMENTER badge, you must always remember to do that FIRST THING before you take your seat.   Now that’s out of the way – let’s talk about the Teaser today.   First of all it’s a GUEST TEASER…..and tomorrow we’ll let you know WHO our Guest was when we tell you WHERE the photo was taken.   In the meantime, it’s your mission today to study the photo and try to figure out where our Guest took the photo and follow these rules while you’re doing it:

Very important to follow the rules so it’s FUN for everyone to play the guessing game.   You have until midnight tonight to make your guess!    There’s a reward at stake as you know – a fabulous and artistic BADGE that you can display on your blog or wherever you wish which will proclaim you as a winner, a fast commenter or even a terrible guesser – depending on the outcome tomorrow.   These are the badges you can win if you’re LUCKY!

I wanna win a badge this week or else I might get VERY upset!

Before we show you today’s photo, I thought you might benefit from a little PUMP UP THE VOLUME kind of cheering on courtesy of our cheer team……………..are you ready??????

Eeny Meeny Miney Mo
Better quit yawning or we’ll step on your toe!
Time to sit up straight and make your guess
Or did you not study – you’ better confess!
This is the place where you display your knowledge
Will you be a perpetual Ding Dong Schooler or go off to college?
It all depends on how much you learn
So show us NOW – go ahead – it’s your TURN!!

That’s right Team – time for our students to show us their SMARTS and for them to study the photo our Security Guard is about to bring in…..then GUESS………and of course we wish them all tons of luck right?

That’s right!

 

I couldn’t BE more ready to guess……

PAGING MR. SECURITY – PLEASE REPORT TO GEOGRAPHY CLASS WITH THE TEASER PHOTO!

Hello Professors and Class – here’s your challenge for today!

YIKES THIS IS A TOUGHIE!!!!

 

Yes we think it might be tough too so study it and just do your best students!    Perhaps a good lunch will give you some BRAIN FOOD for guessing?   Miss Dingleberry is here with something to give you energy………………

Ohhhh la la Miss D – Professor Teddy and I would both like Two slices of LOADED Pizza please!

Students, GOOD LUCK………we’ll see you tomorrow for the TEASER TELL ALL…..

I’m gonna be CRANKY if I can’t figure this one out Professors!!

Professors Angel Sammy and Teddy too

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

44

Hi Everybody!   Thursday rolls around again and we join Brian’s Blog Hop which is ALL ABOUT THANKFULS!     Those of us who want to share our thankfuls go to his blog (click above) and fill out the LINKY form and enter our URL and we’re IN!    We are thankful for a number of things this week including:   The Cat Blogosphere is BACK with new hosts including Brian’s Dad, we had two sunny days out of the last seven so I was finally able to get some sun puddle action, our lawn tractor died but my Dad has a part on order so there’s hope for the old machine (20 years old!) yet, we’ve had our house power washed and our gutters cleaned out of all that disgusting oak pollen…………AND…………..AND……….well, I guess that’s about it since I’ve run out of thankfuls.    However I will say this – if we REALLY TRULY think about it, every single day we are thankful to HAVE that day.   None of us knows how long we will be here so be THANKFUL for every day.   Right?

I received Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic poem last night via email from the Bridge.   He never lets us down.   Here’s what he sent for all of us to see:

♥♥♥

Happy Thursday – it’s poetry challenge day!

Another Thursday and another chance to show us your poetic skills in matching your words with a photo that I’ve given to spark your imagination.    We had some great poetry from you all last week with the photo of the two kittens.  This week’s photo has a lot of possibilities.    If you’ve crafted a poem to share, make sure and tell you you did in the blog comments so we can visit your post and read your poem – OR just write your poem in our comments – either way, share your words with us.   Some of you have said you’d like to try writing a poem SO GO AHEAD AND DO IT!   I encourage you to – you’ll find that it’s not so tough and knowing that poetry doesn’t necessarily mean rhyming helps….also there are long poems, short poems, and so many poetic forms that it’s totally amazing.   Anyway, here’s the poem I wrote for the photo I gave you last week.

“Day Is Done”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell    June 7, 2018

Days on vacation filled with fun

Good times don’t end with the fading sun

Night magic happens as the lights flicker on

Crickets call, frogs serenade, with nature we are one

Reflecting back on the day we have spent

Our vacation so perfect in this cabin we did rent

We cooked out, rowed the boat, caught fish, took a hike

All in the quiet of no trucks, no cars, and no motorbikes….

Just peace and quiet and breathing in the fresh air

Letting go of all worries as we sat on porch chairs.

When we return to “real life” we will treasure these days

We’ll recall the special moments before they fade in life’s haze

In the album will go the photos from this trip to the lake

Knowing next year when we return here, more memories we’ll make………

 

My Mom and Dad have often said they’d like to spend one vacation they take in a cabin on a lake.   They love Maine and have always stayed right on the ocean but Mom thinks the lake district would be a fun change with a quiet cabin, fire in the fireplace, and a rowboat to explore the shore.   I think Teddy would enjoy that – I was a little too “scaredy” for adventure but Teddy is different and I think he’d like it.    ANYWAY, there are also beautiful lakes and cabins in Virginia so they don’t have to TRAVEL far to find that little cabin on a lake.

Are you ready to see the photo I’ve picked for your poetic inspiration this week and your subsequent poem for next Thursday????

I think this will be another FUN one…………….let your imagination take you to a place where poetry just HAPPENS and share your poem with us next week!   I hope you join in the fun.   Until then, remember, I’ll be watching over you along with all your other friends at the Rainbow Bridge!

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Love, Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

YAY!   I like your poem this week my brother but I can’t hardly wait for next week’s.    It looks like a magical spot where teeny tiny people might live…………hmm……..maybe I’ll head out to the woods with Mom now and take a peek!

Love, Teddy

No mushrooms or tiny people under here!!
