Things I Like

Hi everyone!  The video I am sharing for this post is an old song called "The Mocking Bird Went Cuckoo & The Donkey Went Hee Haw".  :)  Silly name, but I thought it was cute and hope you all enjoy it.

I entitled this post "Things I Like" because I thought it would be nice to give you all a chance to get to know me better.  Some of the things you will already know, especially if you are a regular reader here, but some you may not know.

1.  I love music "before my time", especially music from the early 1900's to 1940's.

2.  My favourite seasons:  Winter, Spring and Autumn.  Don't get me wrong, I like the summer, just not the humidity we get here in Montreal.  

3.  I love classic, wholesome television shows such as The Andy Griffith Show, The Waltons, Highway to Heaven, Touched by an Angel, Bewitched, etc.

4.  I love to reminisce about days gone by...and enjoy hearing others talk about how things were when they were younger, but mostly the positive things.

5.  My favourite colours:  forest green, turquoise and coral.

6.  I love the ocean, the rain and taking long walks in nature.

7.  I love all animals, but my favourites are cats and birds.

Thank you all for listening to my likes.  :)

The photo I am sharing today is one that I took in July 2011.
Hope you all like it.  You just need to click on the image to enlarge it.

  1. Oh, delphiniums!
    It's nice to get to know your likes...I too love pre war music, from hearing my parents sing and listening to aunts' records..Count John McCormack figuring largely!

  2. LOVE your photo and the combination of flowers and grass, just the right amount of each. Me too with the cats and birds! We are birdwatchers and have three cats.

  3. Now THAT'S a song with a message! Our likes are similar, except for that cat thing. I'm a dog lover myself. :-0

  4. Lovely post, Linda. Fantastic that you have found that music. Thanks for your comment on my blog. Have a nice day. Greetings, Joke

  5. I like most everything you like but I'd put summer right up at the top 'cause even though it's hot here the snowbirds go back north and we can get a tee time on a golf course and a seat at a restaurant again! :-)

    Love the song title. And the photo is a great summer shot!

  6. I'm not a fan of summer, really either. If I say so, people always look at me like I'm from the moon!

  7. Hi linda lovely and solar photo
    He brings a lot of warmth in this cold winter

  8. I wonder how it is possible these people in the past could keep a glass on their eyelids. I would have many problems.


  9. I'm also fond of music from the 40's, especially WWII songs. My favorite color is emerald green and I collect green glass objects, mostly vases of that color. I love the flower picture you posted today!

  10. A lot of your likes, I know, Linda, but it is nice to read them again... I like you(r blog) !
