Halloween Saturday

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
Happy Halloween to all those who celebrate it!  I am not against it but I don't bother with any celebrations on this day.  :)  

The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Packing Like a Pro

The Cat Shepherd Overseeing his Sheep

Food Rescuers Turn Waste into Meals for the Hungry

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.

Care about people.  Guide them if you know a better way.  The more you help others, the more they will want to help you.  Love and kindness begets love and kindness.  And so on and so forth.

Play, laugh, sing, dance.  Look at things with childlike wonder and you'll never be old!

This is one of the most frustrating things about having an anxiety disorder:  knowing as you're freaking out that there's no reason to be freaked out. But lacking the ability to shut the emotion down.

More love.  Less jerks.

Don't you dare for one more second, surround yourself with people who are not aware of the awesomeness that you are.

No relationship is ever a waste of time.  If it doesn't give you what you want, it teaches you what you don't want.

If you're in a relationship and all you do is cry, you need to stop and ask yourself, are you dating a human or an onion?

Think outside.  No box required.

Just let everything around you and inside you be, without judging it, changing it, labeling it, let it all be, let your emotions be, let your thoughts be, let the people around you be, just for a moment, let it all be.

Sweet efforts are always better than sweet words.

Naturally, we stick close to what we love most.

This disgruntled customer stares through the window until the home owners go out and fill the empty bird feeder.  :)  (for those of you who aren't sure what animal this is a groundhog).  

Espresso yourself!  :)

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!

  9. Hello Linda. It's good to be in touch with you. I enjoyed seeing the video clip of the cat and the sheep and hearing the sounds of the countryside. Wishing you a quiet and very blessed weekend.

  10. Wow, can't believe he managed to squeeze everything in the bag! Lol! I'm also packing my stuff for my coming 2-week Europe trip & I'm using a the largest luggage bag! Lol!

  11. Hello LInda,

  13. Anonymous5:08 AM

    Ha ha... Look at their faces!

    Un abrazo.

  15. je te souhaite une superbe journée , on a du soleil il fait doux ... tu fêtes halloween?

  16. So nice, Linda.
    Oh-no-gag... !

  17. Hello, so many wonderful images and thoughts. Happy Halloween, have a great weekend!

  18. Happy Halloween

  19. Oh I love the cat supervising the flock of sheep! Great videos, Linda & thanks for the inspirational quotes also!
    Have a great weekend!

  20. Oh wow...that "Sketches in Stillness" quote really took my breath, so appropriate for me at this moment in time.
    Thank you, dear much for being you.:)

  21. Wolfman
    The Wolf Man comes home one day from a long day at the office. "How was work, dear?" his wife asks. "Listen! I don't want to talk about work!" he shouts. "Okay. Would you like to sit down and eat a nice home cooked meal?" she asks nicely. "Listen!" he shouts again. "I'm not hungry! I don't wanna eat! Alright! Is that alright with you? Can I come home from work and just do my own thing without you forcing food down my throat? huh?" At this moment, the wolf man started growling, and throwing things around the apartment in a mad rage. Looking out the window, his wife sees a full moon and says to herself, "Well, I guess it's that time of the month."

    Happy Halloween Linda. Boo!

  22. Cute gag video. Enjoyed the other videos all the quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  23. That cat shepherd is something else, Linda. And what a cute disgruntled customer!

  24. That gag is so "Canadian" - I love it! And I love all of Salmansohn's material. And I love Raphael's art. Hope you're having a great first day of the weekend.

  25. Happy Saturday morning, Linda! I've been enjoying your recent posts while drinking my morning coffee. Twice in the last two days, I've been pulled away from your blog, just as I was getting ready to comment. Life!!!!

    First, Belated Happy Birthday! I hope that you have many more happy ones! I am grateful for the increasing number of candles on my cake; too many people I've known died young, and life is the most magnificent gift of all!

    It was lovely to go back and see photos of your parents, your brother, and you. It's really sad that your sweet baby brother died so young; what heartbreak for your family! I have to block out some time and go back to the beginning of your blog!

    I can't remember if I told you how well the rolling-and-elastic-binding packing tips worked. (Thing seems so jumbled lately.) I was already doing all the tricks in this packing video, even putting shoes in plastic bags, but I found the rolling/binding tip even more helpful, especially after being searched by Canadian Customs in Halifax recently. When there is elastic around the rolled whatever, it's so easy to put everything back. I took my rubberized windbreaker, following the rolling plan and reduced it to a very small size. I was shocked! No matter how many times I pack, I am always looking for new tips, so thanks for sharing these. If it's a video of things I already do, then it just makes me feel clever!!!

    Have a lovely weekend, Linda! I'm off to one with plenty of gag laughs and inspiration to brighten my day! Hugs!

  26. Loved the gag. I would have been mortified too.

    Loved the cat heading his sheep. So cute.

    There is indeed a lot of food wasted in America. Feeding the homeless, and there are many homeless, is a great thing.

    Have a fabulous day Nancy. ☺

  27. Happy halloween Linda

  28. I enjoy every of your writing.
    Have a good day.

  29. Wow, de bons trucs pour bien faire sa valise. c'est cool Que j'aime les citations imagées! Bise et bon samedi tout doux!

  30. So glad I tuned in today, Linda! Especially loved the Food Rescuers video - warmed my heart. Thank you, Linda!

  31. Theres plenty of food for thought in this post!
    many a laugh!

  32. Packing like a pro is helpful. It is always a challenge to travel light. Happy Halloween.

  33. Loved the gag today and the kitty shepherd is also cute. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  34. My lovely Linda, how I love the Cat Shepherd, he's really great !!
    I love cats but this is the first I see who not only isn't afraid of sheep at all, but even watch over them !
    And your quotes, you know the serenity they comunicate to me, I love them all !
    Sending love to wish you a wonderful end of the week,
    with gratitude

  35. Have a great weekend LInda!

  36. I love Packing like a Pro video! I'll try the technique next time I go on a trip!
    Espresso yourself image is very cute :-) Have a happy weekend!!

  37. Esta fiesta no es muy tradicional en mi país, pero poco a poco se va introduciendo entre las generaciones mas jóvenes.


  38. I want to go on a holiday now so I can try packing like that!

  39. More love, less jerks is awesome!

  40. Oh, don't we like our creepy Halloweens? :-)

    Greetings from London.

  41. I don't celebrate it, either, Linda. We usually either go away or keep the lights off until it's over. I liked the comparison between dating an onion and dating a human and the "no box required." I could empathize with those poor office workers who shredded the important contract in the JFL gag.

  42. These packing tips are always helpful. For me it starts with the shoes. I always have my runners, but the second pair has to comfortable and then I choose my outfits and accessories to match that one pair of shoes. ;-)

  43. Loved all the quotes (I always like your selection) and I loved the groundhog looking through the window - my squirrels do that - they look through the screen door waiting. Sometimes they are on two legs and it looks like they are praying for us to put something out...Quiet Halloween around here - we live where no one likes to walk uphill - our little town usually does something for the trick or treaters.

  44. I'm very impressed by the Food Rescuer. What a vision!

    Meanwhile in Canada was so cute!

  45. Hope you had a spooky Halloween.

  46. Those sheep in the video certainly look happy and healthy--and that is a big cat, with such a bushy tail!

  47. (Our cats' tails only get that big when they are very mad or feel threatened by something.)
