Saturday Solace

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

A Just for Laughs Gag

A very powerful Thai commercial (English subtitles)

1960's Slinky TV Commercial

Scottish Bagpipes (Will Ye No Come Back Again)

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

In past recent posts, I have shared the art of Connie Bowen.  Now I will introduce to you another artist...Shelagh Duffett.  (for those who are unfamiliar with her art).  I am thoroughly enchanted with her art and am sharing one with you all today.  

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.


  1. J'aime beaucoup cette petite image de Shelagh Duffet
    merci Linda, bon dimanche

  2. I believe we got a slinky for Christmas the first year they came out. They fascinated my dad.

  3. Bonsoir Linda,
    Voir le Slinky me rapelle de beaux souvenirs d'enfances et j'aime beaucoup la toile de Shelag Duffet ♥



  4. My husband, Bill, is a long haul trucker. He learned the trick about wrapping bananas by accident. It does work! Love the cat art!

  5. I like the bagpipe song! The title sounds like a funeral song, but it does have a fast tempo.I am off to find the words.

  6. I like Shelagh's work. And that bagpipe tune of course is quite well known.

  7. In the 2nd Ace Ventura movie he uses a slinky on one of the giant south american pyramids and it stops at the very last step.

  8. Amazin thoughts. I wish I can print all the quotes and hang them on the wall:)

  9. Hello Linda!
    Marvellous videos and pictures, but, specifically the video about The Alzeimer has moved me a lot. I'll probably be more sensiive about this problem.


  10. Hello Linda! I like the tip about a way of keeping your bananas for longer and thanks for featuring the artist and one of her paintings. Bless you.

  11. That is probably one of the most moving A's advertisements I've beautiful and yet so sad. I remember that Slinky advertisement, and another lovely painting...Happy day Linda

  12. Touching video, Linda..., the commercial...
    Little things, yes..., 'we' notice them...

  13. That's interesting regarding the bananas. I put mine in the fridge when they start to get too ripe.

  14. Got a good laugh from the first vide, the second video brought tears to my old eyes, I had a slinky when I was a child, the pictures in the bagpipe video were great as were all the quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  15. I'm wondering if preserving the bananas longer means I won't be getting any banana bread?

  16. thanks for sharing the work of Shelagh Duffett, another artist that I'm not familiar with :)

  17. of the countries forever in my mind since visiting there many times in my life. Thanks for stirring some great memories my friend.

  18. la Slinky pub est très bien realisée Linda

    have a nice day
