Thursday Fun & More about Myself

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 

I know that perhaps some of you might find this strange, but I have always loved the rain!  I love the sound of it beating on a window or umbrella, I love the fresh smell of the air, I just have always loved rain.  Of course I don't like flooding or disasters! Tuesday was a rainy and chilly day, strong winds, and I just enjoyed it.  I have always had the philosophy that complaining about the weather doesn't change it, so why not enjoy it?  Deal with it. Live in the moment. This has helped me get through some tough times and situations in life. Thank you so much for listening!  :)

The videos I have chosen for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Sangria - Three Ways (Thirsty for)

The Unanswerable Phone Call (The Original Candid Camera)

Bowling Alley (The Original Candid Camera)

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.

Be a light to the world...so others recognize the light in themselves.


I'm not awesome in spite of being a rescue dog.  I'm awesome because I'm a rescue dog.


I have so much procrastinating to catch up on! Maybe I'll start tomorrow. - Jane Lee Logan


Family is more than blood.


I'm sexy and I "gnome" it.


First Aid for the Soul - Be good to you!
Be yourself, truthfully.  Accept yourself, gratefully.
Value yourself, joyfully. Forgive yourself, completely.
Treat yourself, generously.  Balance yourself, harmoniously.  Bless yourself, abundantly. Trust yourself, confidently.  Love yourself, wholeheartedly.
Empower yourself, immediately.  Give yourself, enthusiastically.  Express yourself, radiantly.


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.

  3. I love the rain too - for us here, it will be nice and cool. Otherwise, it is usually so hot and humid. And I love this Barry White rain song - so sexy! LOL!!!

  5. Black cat crossing the road, in our belief is considered as a bad omen. We belief that our wishes and plans would not be fulfilled.

  6. Lots of people love the rain, so it's not strange. We can't hear the rain on our roof because it's a tiled one.

    A greeting.

  9. It rains almost every day in my home country, Malaysia.
    Usually it happens in the afternoon, it's heavy thunder storm but only for a very brief period. Then it's scorching hot again.

  12. Bonjour chère Linda,

    Je pense que je vais souvent penser à vous lorsque je vais aller au marché !... J'ai bien souri !... J'ai aussi pris beaucoup de plaisir à admirer l'ensemble de ce petit billet !... Les belles journées parfois m'éloignent des blogs !... Mais je pense fort à vous !

    Gros bisous ☼

  14. Good morning, dear Linda! This is a great batch of videos. I haven't thought about Candid Camera in quite a while but it was a big part of my childhood. It was fun seeing Allen Funt and Durward Kirby (whom I always knew as Durwood Kirby) side by side hosting the popular prank series. The phone that can't be answered was funny, but the bowling piece was priceless. It demonstrates how hard it is to remain supportive and happy for someone who seems to have all the luck.

    Happy Thursday, dear friend Linda!

  15. I like the procrastinating one and also the First Aid for the Soul. I like rain too; not every day or with wind, but just a steady rain. I don't like driving in the rain though. I also love thunder and lightening! How about you?

  16. I like foggy days, it brings softness and mystery...

    La Sangria fait vraiment envie, c'est tellement délicieux!!

    Gros bisous et bonne journée εïз *

    I like this quote you added:

    Be a light to the world...so others recognize the light in themselves...

    Very true xox

  21. Beautiful set Linda. Ha.........I got a kick out of the sexy Gnome.

  22. Oh my goodness, I couldn't stop laughing with the Candid Camera videos especially the bowling one.
    I love thunderstorms, the rain, wind, thunder and lightning but no tornadoes. I find storms relax me. I must be weird.
    Have a wonderful stormy night my friend. See ya.

  23. Linda, all the videos were great and so were all the quotes. We had a tin roof when I was growing up and I loved hearing the rain drops hitting that roof. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  24. I like your attitude about the rain! It rains a lot here in Oregon too, but I've grown to love it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Linda, I too love the rain especially when I am sleeping but not those with thunder and lightning.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I got lots of smiles reading your blog today Linda! I don't particularly care too much for a lot of rain, but a little rain is always nice! We had a rainy day yesterday, and it was nice to know that the grass and plants were getting watered. Thanks for all the giggles and smiles!

  29. j'aime cette phrase sur le chat noir, et j'aime rencontrer un chat noir, il me plairait d'en avoir un chez moi.
    Mais j'ai déjà un chat avec un masque noir! qui est un amour.
    J'aime aussi le son, l'ambiance d'une journée de pluie.(surtout quand c'est le soir et la nuit)
    bonne soirée Linda

  31. I've heard that black cat saying attributed to Groucho Marx, which does sound like something he'd say.

  36. Hi, Linda. I always enjoy your videos. And I loved the "poster" about procrastination. So true. For me, anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Bonsoir Linda, merci pour ce beau moment! Bise et bonne nuit toute douce!

    ReplyDelete
  38. when I was just a little girl, i love rain but now....LOL. Guess I'll have to open my eyes and enjoy the rain again

    ReplyDelete
  39. Here in Colorado people say, "If you don't like the weather, wait an hour." I'm with you, Linda: Deal with it. Live in the moment. If everything was always the same, it might get boring. That said, "The Princess Sassy Pants" quote today is resonating with me! LOL! Have a great Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yes, be a light to the World is truly inspiring.

  43. Alors il fait beau temps à Montréal, je ne l'aurai pas imaginé. J'ai toujours l'impression qu'il fait frais au Canada. Ici, il fait bien chaud.
    Merci pour les vidéos.
    Bisous
