We all need to take the time to reflect on ourselves and our life, that is when we know we are still alive within...our hearts, our tears, our memories and our time.


The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your thoughts.


Well, that's not my dog...


Sometimes people with the worst pasts end up creating the best futures.




The man on top of the mountain didn't fall there. - Vince Lombardi


There comes quite naturally a lightness and a joy that is innate in us, when we are not fixated in past and future.








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.

  2. Papaya's good, lots of health benefits. Here, they also use raw papaya to cook soup - haven't tried that myself though.

  13. Good morning, dear Linda! My favorite video in this bunch is the Dollar Store jar salad. Mrs. Shady and I have a Dollar Store near us and often shop there for supplies. We will be on the lookout for those jars. She makes smoothies to take along with her to work. Those salads look delicious and would be a nice addition to her lunch. It makes me sad to see those beautiful butterflies and to know that their numbers are dwindling due to overuse of pesticides and other factors. Dinah Shore was one of my mother's favorite singers. When I was a boy my family watched Dinah's Chevrolet-sponsored television show every week.

    Happy Thursday, dear friend Linda!

  15. My thirteen year old granddaughter is given so many cloths from friends of my generation, clearing away things they wore in the seventies and eighties and are thrilled to find someone who fits them. Laura has such a style sense, she rocks those vintage clothes.

  18. So many of the gags involve situations over which the "mark" has no control...which is what makes them funny, of course. This is a good one! Love the butterfly in flight. But I avoid Dollar stores if I possibly can and I can't imagine eating one of their salads in a jar! :)

  19. Meanwhile in Canada with the deer. At least it wasn't a bull moose. Candy Waters art amazes me. She should show her art in the art museum where more people could see it. It's so nice of you to put it in your blog for us to see. Have a wonderful Thursday Linda. See ya.

  29. Bonjour chère Linda,

    J'ai beaucoup souri en regardant votre première vidéo...
    Je ne savais pas que la salade pouvait être vendue toute prête ainsi composée !
    J'ai tellement de plaisir à la composer moi-même !
    Une très jolie publication avec aussi un chaton bien lové !
    Gros bisous et bonne fin de semaine.
