Ducks, Humour & Ballroom Dancing!

Hi everyone!  It is so nice to see you all!  Today the weather is really nice and mild, and we had some snow.  However, it is supposed to get really cold again Monday, so I enjoyed the warmer temperatures today...and will again tomorrow!  

For this post I am sharing a cute and humorous one minute video on ballroom dancing...the do's and don'ts.  This video was made in 1926.  Hope you all enjoy it!

As for the photo I am sharing today, I took this photo in the summer of 2011.  I went to a park at sunset to see and photograph the ducks and got a nice surprise.  There was an elderly woman in a wheelchair with her grandson, right by the water, and this beautiful, sweet elderly woman was feeding the ducks.  It was very touching to see her interact with them and how much the ducks loved her and came right up to her.  I asked the grandson if I could take a photo of him with his grandmother and he happily obliged.  
You just need to click on the photo to see a larger view.

  1. Nice photo, amusing video. ;-)

  2. Feeding ducks would be one of my favorite activities too. Of course, I love feeding all kinds of animals!

  3. This s a wonderful picture, and how sweet you were to offer to take their picture!! That must have been a highlight of their day.

  4. I enjoyed both the video and the picture of the woman in the park. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

  5. It's a shame dancing isn't the same anymore. Even at weddings.

  6. Good morning Linda funny and cute video
    beautiful photo that does so much tenderness.
    here continues to snow Hi
    buona domenica.

  7. Nice ad sweet Linda.

  8. The video and its music was fun to watch, esp the "steps" the photo, I sincerely hope that they watched their steps, too, with all those ducks around!

  9. When I see this Ballroom video, I have to laugh. The dancing changed a lot over the decades.


  10. Nice dancing-video, Linda
    and a really touching photo !

  11. Sometimes the smallest pleasures bring the greatest joy. Which will be the most memorable...feeding the ducks, or time shared between grandmother & grandson? Wouldn't it be a wonderful world if the elderly had moments like these to share with family or friends on a regular basis? Thanks again for sharing, Linda. You always make me smile!
