Come Fly With Me - For Sammy the Cat

Today we join Madi and Angel Easy in sending our well wishes to Sammy. Sammy is taking his final journey today and his hot air balloon will be landing at the Rainbow Bridge after many months of diminishing health.  We know how much his Mom Pam is going to miss him and are sending her extra special thoughts and hugs today.

Sammy is famous for his Teaser Tuesday, where he shows a picture from somewhere on the planet and everyone tries to guess where it is. Our friend Angel Easy was excellent at this and often got them right, my Mom, not so much.

In honor of Sammy here are our teaser pictures. For a clue - people thought Mom lived here until she opened her mouth.

Here's the arrival further away from her final destination, but in the same land.  That's from the cockpit of the jet Mom was flying (if there are any pilots in the group it's an NA-265 used by the military back when dinosaurs roamed the earth).



Yes, that was a long, steep hike.  When Mom saw this photo today, she looked at her knees now and just shuddered.

There goes the bus of tourists, guess Mom will be hiking back to the visitor's center - hopefully they will have beer.

Where in the world is this?  You put your guess in the comments and join in the fun with Sammy before he flies away.  Abby Lab

    Ah the cutie Rockwell Sabre - have been a passenger in one. Nice. Now, the real give-away here is the Giant's Causeway which is in Northern Ireland! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

    1. That was my favorite airplane ever to fly. When I was a Captain flying that thing (and looked like I was 12), everyone went to the second in command for orders, not believing I was the pilot. Yes, Giant's Causeway. I had a free weekend and rented a car and drove there. What a wonderful place! I loved the Irish coastline, reminded me of Oregon where we had a little summer cabin rental when I was a kid.

  4. Well Abby, we don't really know where that is, but as SHE has a phobia of heights, we don't think we'll ever get there!

    1. May your Mom be comforted with all of the fun memories made along the way (and Mom wants your Mom to know she ordered your Mom's mystery novel today, and can't wait to read it this weekend!) Thank you for all you have meant to everyone
