Game/ Take a guess/ Prize involved....

Clip to ScrapBook #1

This is my 1st year retired. I spent 94 dollars on myself for the best retirement gift I could ever imagine.

The first person who guesses correctly will win a cool personalized prize, seriously!

Hint: It is just 1 word and everyone here would know the answer......
I'll check daily until we have a winner!
If needed, I'll give a hint a day until someone guesses right!

I do not miss waking up early, but obviously I miss games. Will you play student? lol

Belinda, sorry! You are not eligible to play. You'd guess it too easily. You can make ridiculous guesses, but not anything I told you about....lol
I'll send you the same when I send to the winner.

Excellent tries, but you do need another hint

1 person on this thread would definitely like what I bought.

Just from reading the threads on here, I think Lisa, Wildflowers, Musiclover, and Lacey2 would like it a lot,
while Annie G, and Travelingfar, and Ruby Tunes might not appreciate it as much.
Will explain my reasoning later and see if I am right!

The word I am looking for has has 6-8 letters in it.



Oh, haha about a subscription to Match. I have been single for awhile and think life is much easier. I'm not looking for problems!

Very quickly after my last clue....I wish so bad there was a way to upload the photo on here. You know how most people think their baby is the cutest, smartest, and sweetest? That is the way I feel.
I have no clue why animal rescue didn't charge a flat 100 bucks, but they didn't. This cute baby makes me wake to a smile. She jumps on my face once she thinks I have slept long enough. She is gentle though and so sweet.
She makes me laugh and smile most of the day. Even though she got ahold of a roll of paper towels yesterday while I was gone. It looked like snow was everywhere upstairs when I got home.
She is so fascinated with the bathtub too for some reason. She has jumped in often. She likes to bat around balls in there. (A couple times when water was in there, she hopped in too. She got out fast both times.)
There were lots of great guesses. I was so stunned that Catwoman was the 1st to reply!
Oh, my reasoning on the people I mentioned. Lisa mentioned she liked her cat somewhere. Others had pictures on their avatars. The 3 I said might not appreciate it as much had dog avatars which made me think they were dog people. Sometimes they like cats too though. But, I figured they liked dogs most.
I just thought of something. I could try to get a picture of her on my avatar, but am not sure how. I will try in a minute. Thanks to all for playing! Tracie, Check your inbox. Congrats! I will try to make a trickier game at a later time!! I love retirement!
Oh, I got the picture on. I wish you could click it to make her bigger cus she is a cutie! I know...bragging mom!

Fish-I could not have survived 30 yrs of teaching w/out a good coffeemaker... I make my own lattes. I was thinking of using you as a clue b/c my kitty loves to eat salmon and tuna.
Keltic/ MD At the risk of sounding very dumb, I have to admit I do not know what A Cricut even is! ( I live in the boonies.) What is it? I am thinking of getting a good lounge chair though!
Irish- I have never used a Kindle. My bf has 1, but I seldom had time to relax that way. I might look into 1.
MHugs- I used to love to paint, so you could have been close. My house now is too small to have proper ventilation though.
Linda, My son bought me an Instapot Omni a month ago. I need to take the time to read the directions on it. He says I'll love it.

Rusty, I live in Alaska. I loved hammocks though when I lived in warmer climates. I wish I was musical, but never really was.
Married and Sonoma- Every yr a fr of mine who loved massages would give me gift certificates. I never was into it, so I gave them to someone who was. Then 1x the friend took me there as a surprise. I had no choice. The massage tickled so much that they could hear me laughing in the waiting room. The lady who did them told me that it is normal if someone is real tense that it tickles. I have never known anyone else though who experienced that before though.
Poohbear- I am going to take a fun class in a month, but not much could beat this kitten!
Luvto- Your Match made me laugh! Also, I have enjoyed going barefoot inside all day since being home more.

TC- I may check out a reading device.
Catwoman- I was so shocked to see the 1st person who commented was so related to my gift. I thought you may catch it asap with the hints.
Belinda, I'll inbox you soon with Q's for the prize too for not guessing! You did not know how much I paid for her, but I am pretty sure you knew how I felt about her!
Trasie- Woohoo!

Oh, and Trasie............the 3 siblings I am sending you as a prize should arrive
by next week.
Seriously, the prize is an Alaskan care package.

I agree with you 100%! My bf jokes kindly to see if I can go 10 minutes without talking about her.
I am having a blast with her, love her to pieces, and am spoiling her rotten. I had long term ( almost 20 yrs each) cats 2x, but when the last 1 died a few years ago, I decided to wait until I retired, so I could spend more time w/ a kitten.
I know this sounds crazy, but I have always called my cats Kitty. I can say: Here, Kitty, Kitty real fast and they always come running.
I am not changing it cus it works...lol Even this kitty (the 3rd) learned when I say that to come running within a few days. I do have pet names like 1 was called Miss Precious by family. My sister named this 1 Linda b/c she said it means pretty in Spanish.
This is my first tuxedo cat. I did call her booger butt after she tore up all of the paper towels into shreds, but I did it in a sweet voice......

I came in too late to guess! But I don't have a dog for my avatar, so maybe you are thinking of another person? But as it happens, I am a dog lover, and not so much a cat person, so maybe you are psychic! And congrats!

In 1 of the threads about when you get up, you said:

Well, I wake up at 6ish with the help of my dog. I'd like to sleep later, but it rarely happens for me. I do like a good nap, but strangely I don't nap as often as I used to

So, I guess I wasn't psychic. I just remembered you had a dog.

I'm too late to play the game but I had fun reading all the replies. Your tuxedo kitten is adorable. I love cats, too, and have had three rescues over the years, all taken home from schools where I worked. My current former school cat is a black male who is now fourteen years old. He has lived with and trained three Dobermans, and he rules!
PS. My cat's name is Kitty Boy. He was a kitten when I brought him home, and he was a boy while my dog then and now is a female.

Another game, please!

Thank you for agreeing with me about the adorableness of the fur ball who is sitting on my shoulder at this moment. I am very aware of how annoying it is when someone can only talk about their new pet. I think I have purposefully stifled myself for a week talking about her, and it all came pouring out on this page.
That is funny your Kitty Boy rules the roost with 3 Dobermans.
I think once a dog gets a healthy swipe on the nose from a cat's claws, they gain a new respect for the cat.
I love dogs too, but I like my sleep more. I wouldn't want to have to get up every morning to take the dog out. I actually think I might prefer a dog if it was not for the having to be on a sleep schedule.
I already have a new contest in mind that we could do for a week. Then we could all vote on the winner. I'll post it tomorrow and a week will give more people time. I was hoping Trasey would see she won 3 kittens, but I don't think she got on here today. I was only joking though! That is not the prize!

Your kitten is adorable! Itís easy to see why youíre so crazy about her. I had a good chuckle when I saw that I won three kittens. I glanced at my spoiled dog and asked how heíd like some siblings! He didnít have too much to say in response.

I got your message to my inbox and will be responding. It was fun and challenging to figure what your gift to yourself was.

Thanks!

Trasie- You have to teach me how to make cat pictures like that. I bet your spoiled dog would not like a prize of 3 kittens!

Cat woman- 3 cats! This 1 I have is starting to be a handful. But, yep! During Covid times, she is making my life much more fun.

CK2 - I am going to post 1 more contest in a minute. This time, I hope you can play.
