Friday Fulfillment and about the Just for Laughs Gags

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I think I figured out what is happening with the gags!
Firstly, I did not receive a response to my e-mail, but this is okay, because I think I figured out the issues. If the Just for Laughs Gags that I post are uploaded here in Montreal, and by the Just for Laughs crew themselves, they do work here for all on my blog. However, if they are uploaded by another YouTube user who chooses, in their settings, to only have their uploaded videos available in certain areas, then this is why some of us are unable to see them here.  So I will continue to share the Just for Laughs Gags, but only the ones that are actually uploaded by the Just for Laughs crew...however, please note that if they have been uploaded in other parts of the world, depending on whom is uploading it and where it is uploaded, I cannot guarantee that all can see them. I hope this clears things up for you all.  But as I mentioned in a previous post, I will always post things that make you laugh, so even if it is not a Just for Laughs Gag, it will be something else...either a video or in the form of an image.  Thank you so much for your patience and understanding, and for your love and support.  :)

The videos I have chosen for this post are:

Sometimes, all that's needed is a little change in perspective.

Tangled Twinkle

If you bring drama to my door, don't be surprised when I close it.

Find time...the time to read, to smell the flowers, to make art, to have coffee with a friend, to write a letter, to bake a surprise cake, to go somewhere special, to really be with the person you love, or even to do nothing for a while.

The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life.  It provides human beings with a sense of destination and the energy to get started. - Norman Cousins

To be enlightened doesn't mean that you won't have any negative thoughts anymore, it means that even while entangled in these thoughts, you allow them to be without believing in them and they will dissolve.

Sometimes I prefer not to talk about things until I figure out what I'm truly feeling and thinking.

Stop trying to micromanage how you feel life should be unfolding.  Breathe and macroappreciate the big picture.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not obsess.  Just breathe and have faith that all will work out for the best.

Quick!  Think of a memory that makes you smile. That felt kind of good, right?  Next time you feel stressed or sad, do a "mental rental" and think about happy memories.

One of the hardest lessons to learn:  how to let go. We cling so tightly to our anger, guilt, shame and pain.  Breathe and release.

While you were waking up today, someone else was taking their last breath.  Be thankful for this day. Don't waste it.

Someone should open an ice cream shop with flavors like "Don't be sad" and "You deserve better".  :)

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. Good morning, dear Linda!

    It seemed unsanitary for that girl in the gag video to be grabbing people's shoes and trying them on her own foot. Chronic sleep deprivation has become a fact of life for Mrs. Shady and me. We are both so busy that the 7 to 8 hours that experts recommend seems ludicrous. God bless the hero cat for keeping the abandoned baby warm in the dumpster and crying out for help. The early 70s seems to be your favorite period for popular music, dear friend. In the winter of 1973, "Dancing in the Moonlight" spent 11 weeks on the Billboard chart and peaked at #13. I remember it well.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  2. that's a good cat

    Bonjour Linda

    Merci pour ce beau post !
    Je vais ainsi passer un agréable vendredi.

    Bises de Paris et gros bisous

  4. Hello Linda, that is a very good video about the cat saving the baby. It is so touching for a cat to have the mother's instinct and love to protect and kept a human baby warm and calling out for help in her own way. Have a beautiful Friday!

  5. So far so good all the way here in Sarawak, Malaysia - no problem watching all the video clips that you've shared. Yup, gotta start wrapping the presents - Christmas will be here soon.

  6. thanks for all your thoughtfulness regarding the gag videos! :) and i love the poster with the ice cream shop suggested flavours! :D

  7. bravo au chat héros!
    bisous et douce journée ici sous la pluie

    Woman steals, is quite fun Linda. I wish you a great day.

  10. Love the pussy~cat story....
    Cats..and..dogs are very intelligent most of them are...Bless!x

    While your waking up to~day...
    Reminded me of one of my favourite sayings..
    "Every day above ground is a good day".

  11. Excelente trabalho e belos vídeos.
    Um abraço e bom fim de semana.

  12. Bonjour chère Linda,
    Très amusant ta vidéo gag !

    En ce moment il est aussi utile de bien savoir envelopper les paquets ! et aussi d'apprendre à mieux dormir !...

    Joyeuses fêtes à vous et tous ceux que vous aimez.

    Gros bisous ❄︎

  13. Hello Linda!

    I loved the last picture you are showing today. Wonderful art!

    Have a nice weekend!

  14. Don't leave drama at my true is that one..

  15. Hi, Linda!
    I'm Irina and a novice in your blog. Nice to meet you!
    Insomnia piece is quite educative and a bit scary. I guess, few working people nowadays can boast of enjoying a norm of sleep. I also chose my favourite flowers - it's fun! Do you summarize the results somehow?
    If you recognize books, and I hope you do as we are close in age, come to my blog Book Lovers. I write in Russian (there's translation option) and in English. Have a great week end!
    With best wishes from Russia,

  16. Linda, I like them all! Have a good day!

  17. Good morning, I love that song Dancing in the moonlight. So many great quotes today. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  18. nice to see about how to wrap a present, I always have difficulties in doing them.

  19. Toujours de bien jolis posts très variés. Je passe chaque fois un bon moment en ta compagnie. Bon vendredi. Bises

  20. "Dancing in the Moonlight " me paraît très romantique Linda...


  21. I had the same thought as Mr. Shady about the cleanliness of trying other people's shoes on one's own bare feet. Still, it was funny. The video about the cat and the baby was very interesting. We do underestimate the animals in our lives sometimes.

  22. " While you were waking up today, someone else was taking their last breath. Be thankful for this day. Don't waste it."
    You are totally correct on this one. I thank God each morning to see the sun come up and each night I also thank God for a full day. I know that at the same time that someone will no longer see the next day. I think that our world forgets this but not me.

    Have a beautiful, exciting day Linda. See ya

    Cruisin Paul

  23. I don't know where you find all these great quotes but I'm glad you keep posting them day after day!

  24. You make me happy, Linda, -> more gags !

  25. Hi, sweet Linda! I hope this finds you well.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the quotes today - loved the one with the giraffe on it :) Unfortunately, your videos are not showing up for me at the moment....I shall have to try again later, dear one.

    Hugs to you!

  26. Great gag video. Sweet video of the cat and the baby. Great quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  27. I will know how to wrap a present :) Thank you darling for your care and love to us. Liuba x

  28. Wow, the story about the kitty and the baby is amazing! She is truly a hero!

  29. Especially Love the hero cat and gag videos. Thank you, Linda! Much love.

  30. Bon week end Linda



  31. Thanks for the update on the gag videos.

    Love this gag. Some of those shoes had to have hurt her feet. Too funny.

    Oh the baby and the kitten. So precious.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ☺

  32. Some of those gag people must have a lot of chutzpah...I could imagine taking a pair of shoes and walking away! So funny! That is one heroic cat. Hope she gets fresh tuna the rest of her life! I'm going to go dump my bad memories now! Have a great day!

  33. Closing the door on drama-I like that visual!

  34. Happy Friday Linda! And the Christmas wrapping video is so helpful! I actually really enjoy wrapping and trying to be as creative as possible with the paper creasing and ribboning. :)

  35. "Loving the capacity for hope...." Linda, as always, your posts bring laughter and hope. Thank you and have a great weekend.

  36. Hi! I enjoyed your How to wrap a gift box video. Thanks for sharing.

  37. I needed that "How to Wrap a Gift Box" video. I feel like all I do these days is wrap presents!
