Thursday Thoughts

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag

African Jazz Pioneers Mantonoro - I thoroughly enjoyed this! The tune was nice and upbeat and I loved the smiles on the people!  I also enjoyed seeing one lady sleeping in the video. LOL!  What fun!  Enjoy!

A Day in the Life of a Pioneer Child

I found the following items on Facebook, and am providing the link sources for them beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

  14. Bonjour,
    Ta vidéo "A day in the life of a pioneer child" me fait beaucoup penser à Upper Canada Village en Ontario. Nous y allions chaque année avec les enfants et nous aimions beaucoup.
