Tuesday Picks and Some Personal Thoughts

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 

In my post yesterday, one of the things I had shared was about cats...it said that male cats are typically left-pawed and that female cats are typically right-pawed.  I had to laugh, because I have a two year old, black and white male cat named 'Romeo', and he mostly uses his left paw.  Sometimes when I tell him the word 'no' when he does something I don't want him to do, he protests by lifting up his left paw...to 'slap' me, and I slap him back on the paw with my hand.  LOL!  It looks more like we are doing a "high 5" than anything else.  :)

The videos I have selected for this post are:

No matter how good or bad you think you have it, wake up every morning and be grateful for your life...because someone somewhere is fighting for theirs.


Be kind.  It really is that simple.


Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.  I can choose which it shall be.  I have just one day today and I am going to be happy in it. - Groucho Marx

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. I too have watched cats. They often use their left paw to do anything. First weapon for them to get protected is their paws...

  9. Caterpillars and butterflies, they can be found in every home, workplace, anywhere in the world. Guess I am more the caterpillar,, and in your posts, the words emerge from the cocoon, to become a butterfly on your blog.

  15. Good morning, dear Linda! I enjoyed the tour of the cathedral city of Salisbury, England, only a "stone's throw" from the prehistoric Stonehenge monument. The other day Mrs. Shady and I watched a documentary about Monarch butterflies and today's video reminded me of it. I never saw anything like those surfing swans! They really seemed to enjoy riding the waves and didn't mind people standing so near.

    Thank you, dear friend Linda!

  23. Wonderful videos and quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  24. Now I want to visit Salisbury! Loved that background music, too.

    In the black swan video, I kept thinking that the child on shore must have been so excited to see the swans riding the waves and landing right in front of him. How cute is that?

  25. The balloon prank was funny!

  26. Hola Linda, como siempre precioso, las mariposas y los cisnes me encantan. Un abrazo grande y se feliz.

  27. Loved hearing about Romeo, and enjoyed the cat art. As usual, everything was wonderful, especially the surfing swans. Great selection of quotes, too. Thank you, Linda!

  28. Salisbury is one of those places I'd love to see for myself.

  29. I always love the pranks and I loved watching the swans surfing. That was very cool.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. ☺

  30. I really liked the little video, First Wings. Whenever I try to take a picture of the butterfly, it flies away too quickly. It's so graceful, and it brings me peace when I see it. I liked the Black Swans also because my husband and sons are both surfers.

    Be Kind, It really is that Simple.....what a beautiful quote. Thank you for all the inspiration on here today, Linda.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm doing my part to control the cookie population! That's interesting about your left-pawed cat. I love the mental image you painted of the high-five with him.

    ReplyDelete
  44. So funny, I have never even thought about animals being left pawed or right pawed! That is so interesting to me!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  50. I had never before given it much thought, but when I stop scratching behind Mama Kitty's (a.k.a. Miss Callie) ears before she is ready for me to, she will reach out to me with her left front paw.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I guess my daughter's cat is ambidextrous as she uses both front paws at once to strike at the offending dogs who dare enter her space!
