I love straightforward people.  Their lack of drama makes life so much easier.


We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. - T.S. Eliot


When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed. - Maya Angelou


Obstacles don't have to stop you.  If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.  Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. - Michael Jordan


Think twice before you act, twice before you speak, and three times before you post on Facebook.


Practice forgiveness, love and tolerance today so when it's difficult, you will have some experience.


What you focus on, you will be.


Don't wait for everything to be perfect before you start to enjoy your life.


You can't be brave if you've only had wonderful things happen to you. - Mary Tyler Moore

  2. Good morning, dear Linda!

    This time the gag video troupe enlisted the services of a couple of stuntmen. I would be shocked, too, if I was dining at an outdoor cafe and saw my server run after a delinquent customer and tackle him, especially if it was an elderly man using a walker. I took German in high school and college and enjoy these German language singing performances. I can't remember much of what I was taught, but I am able to translate most of the titles and some of the song lyrics. I never saw a pure black squirrel before. What a beautiful little critter he is and so cute as he eagerly nibbled on a peanut. God bless him! The Big State Pharmacy and Fountain in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas, reminds me of my own Shady Dell where hamburger and hot dog buns were toasted on the grill and kids could select from dozens of fountain concoctions including those rich, creamy milkshakes. When I was little my mother often took me with her when she went shopping in downtown York. We usually ended up at a pharmacy soda fountain and eatery like the one there in Irving. Mom always got a fresh made fountain Coke and I usually opted for a vanilla shake. I miss those happy days!

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  8. El vídeo de la ardilla muy simpática.
    Los pensamientos como siempre superiores ya que el pasado no se puede cambiar pero si debemos mejorar el futuro, por muchas paredes que encontremos tratando de pasar o rodear.

    Saludos.

  10. Bonjour

    je suis un peu zombie ce samedi , pas pu dormir avec des sirènes de police et ambulance toute la nuit , le métro est fermé j'ai jamais connu ça même avec les émeutes dans les années 90 ... j'ai sorti le chien la première fois a 6H20 et la ville était vide , le commissariat pas loin est fermé ...

    tout ça avec un ciel gris et 3° a 10H ce matin , ça donne une drôle d'atmosphère ....

    une pensée aux familles des victimes hier au Mali ....

    et pas que pour les belges morts mais pour tout les décédés ....

  17. Ha, ha! Another great JFL gag. Fun to see how the black squirrel makes short work of a peanut, too. And that Big State Pharmacy looks like it would be worth making a trip to Irving, Texas just to experience it.

  24. Good morning Linda. Surprise, I have SNOW on the ground. It's to early for me. I can't wait for my cruise to the Caribbean with warm breezes, brilliant sunshine and blue skies instead of snow, cold breezes & freezing temps. Sounds good to me.
    Have a awesome Saturday my friend. See ya.

  25. Bwahahahahahahaha on the gag. He really took that old man out to get his money. Wow.

    Oh the squirrel video. Awww.

    I want that green chili burger. Yummy. I remember these places. We had Thrifty Drug Store here. It was a store and pharmacy too.

    Have a fabulous day Linda and I hope you're feeling better. ☺

  27. Hi Linda! The gag is wonderful. They are all wonderful because they do the unexpected and take us by surprise.

    Hope you are having a wonderful start to the weekend!

  41. Black squirrels always catch my eye. They look so different than expected. We have some around the Bellingham WA hospital. Where I live in Powell River there aren't any. They must be very localized. Thanks for stopping by today to comment on my book review. Lyn Hancock has written many books and she is still traveling and exploring. A very interesting lady. - Margy
