Friday Fun

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

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Did you Hear?  Black Cats are Cool!

Flowers of Spring (Winter Jasmine) - Zhang Lu

Paddleboarder Nearly Hits Shark! (drone footage)

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.

Silence is loaded with answers.


Life is based on perception.  Perception is based on beliefs.  Beliefs are based on thoughts.  Thoughts come from the mind.  Master your thoughts, master your life.


Please be gentle with others.  You never know what inner pain they might be recovering from.


Why feel blue when there are so many other colors you can feel.


Somebody sometime, disapproved of yourself and you started disapproving of yourself.  Disapproval is just a story in your head distracting you from the love present in your heart.


No, it doesn't work that way.  I can't just wake up one day, say, "I want to be happy and be happy. Believe me, I've tried."


Mental health:  let's talk about it.


Stop worrying about what you have to lose and start focusing on what you have to gain.


When others try to rain on your dreams, carry an umbrella and dream on!


Montreal police wore hilarious pants as a pressure tactic in a labour dispute. (and this has been going on for quite a long time, too)


Whatever comes along, you'll get through it.  At some point you'll learn to stop fighting, to stop struggling, to stop complaining, and allow yourself to successfully handle whatever comes your way.








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. LOL Sean! I have had 3 black cats in my life and they were all beautiful and very sweet. They are not bad luck and I actually don't believe in luck, because to me life is what we make it. Black cats are beautiful, trust me, and there is no luck involved here. :) Just love.

    2. I read somewhere that the pound won't let black cats be adopted near Halloween because of what might happen to the black cats.

    3. Hi Ivy, this is true! There are some very cruel people out there that will harm black cats. Here in Montreal a couple of months ago there was someone who was mutilating and killing stray cats and the police were looking for him/her. I hope that they caught and charged the person. :(

  3. Hello Linda!:) Wow, that shark vídeo was scary! You just never know what's underneath you in the sea. Loved the black cat and dog vídeos. We once had a black cat called Tinker,... the best! Those trousers made me smile.:)
    Thank you Linda for your cheerful post.:)

  7. Good morning Linda!!! I love the first video :)) It is so funny :) Loved this quote: "When others try to rain on your dreams, carry an umbrella and dream on!" and its picture. That girl is so cute with umbrella in her hands. Wishing you a great weekend! Liuba x

  15. Ah yes...silence is loaded with answers, for sure! That's why the best thing you can do when someone is being obnoxious online is to just ignore the person. Often they'll end up looking like a complete jerk.

  16. Hi, dear Linda! My favorite video today was the one paying tribute to black cats. When I was a boy, my aunt and uncle had a black cat named Felix and a white cat named Sam. I loved them both. In recent years I befriended a stray black cat that came to my house for food and water. I named him Boots because all of his paws were white. A kind neighbor woman adopted Boots before I moved away. That was remarkable footage of the paddleboarder surfing directly over a shark. It's a wonder the shark didn't attack. Aerial views of our world captured by drones have revolutionized cinematography.

    Have a safe and happy weekend, dear friend Linda!

  18. For some reasons, I'm not a fan of black cats. Somehow they always remind me of witches. Hahaha! xoxo

  20. Hi Linda. I was laughing about the outfits that the Montreal police wore. To tell you the truth, I love it. More cops should wear pants like them.
    Have a great day my friend. See ya.

  25. Hey, I just returned from visiting Montreal and Ottawa and the surrounding areas. Beautiful places; the Capital Building is superbly stunning along with all the Churches in Montreal. That Chinese song is very nice. The 1st video was hillarious and all these writings/sayings are so nice. I'm going to steal them from you :-)

  26. Love the umbrella quote and the blue cat print! Have a great weekend :-)

  27. We have a black cat and he is the friendliest cat I have ever met. He would have loved living in a nursing home because he just loves to sit with anyone who will allow it for hours on end.
