Friday Fun

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

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Old Dutch Christmas Song

Sniffer Dogs in Action at Gatwick Airport

Christmas in Killarney - Irish Christmas Song

Could it be Magic - Barry Manilow

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.

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

There will be haters and doubters and then there will be you proving them wrong.

Do not let yourself be surrounded by people who will peck, peck, peck you to death like a duck. - Maya Angelou

If someone is stupid enough to walk away from you, be smart enough to let them go.

It's been a while.  I'm not who I was before.  You look surprised.  Your words don't burn me anymore. It's just a brand new kind of me.  I found a brand new kind of free. - Alicia Keys

Despite how open, peaceful and loving you might be...people can only meet you as deeply as they've met themselves.  This is the heart of clarity.

Challenges make great compost for growing a better life.

I am going to be happy.  I'm going to smile a lot.  I'm going to be easy.  I'm going to count my blessings.  I'm going to look for reasons to feel good. I'm going to dig up positive things from the past. I'm going to look for positive things in the future.  It is my natural state to be a happy person.  It's natural to be a happy person.  It's natural for me to love and to laugh.  I am a happy person. - Abraham Hicks

Inner peace comes from the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.

We all feel heartache and pain.  It just comes in different forms.

It takes a strong heart to love.  And it takes a truly strong heart to love again after being hurt.

Don't worry about people who aren't happy for you. They probably are not happy for themselves either.

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. Challenges can for sure be fun, too.

  2. Barry Manilow, another favourite of mine...and at this time of year, his song, "It's just another New Year's Eve" comes to mind... Love it!

  12. Sniffer dogs are good. We have them at the airport and at the ferry.

  13. Very nice post, as usual.
    Linda, have a great weekend.

  14. la dernière image de Raphael Vavasseur est fabuleuse Linda

  15. heh, those people on the bench certainly weren't happy to be playing a game of soccer :)

  16. O nooo... Why ? Just play a bit... !

  17. Hello, Dogs are very smart, it is good they can be used as sniffer dogs at the airports. Another great inspiring post.
    Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  18. Hi Linda, I wish you a wonderful day.mi hope you are all ready for the Christmas season.

  19. Bonjour Linda,
    J'aime bien la musique Irlandaise, c'est festif!

    Bisous et bon week end


  20. I was surprised to see how many people became irritated at the old man and his soccer ball. How much effort does it take to give a little joy to a simple old man by joining in a game with him? At first, I thought the girl was just sad over something in her own life; but then she seemed to be vindictive. I enjoyed the video, but it didn't make me laugh this time. Love the sniffing dogs, though. I really enjoy watching working dogs work.

  21. haha epic old man! such annoyance~

  22. Hello Linda, lets not let ourself be surrounded by people who will peck, peck, peck us to death like a duck. Have a wonderful weekend!

  23. Great quotes and beautiful art today!

  24. The old Dutch Christmas song is quite familiar.

  25. The younger generation seems to be so indifferent and annoyed at that old man wanting to play ball.
    Thanks for your comment on my blog and have a great day.

  26. Good Morning, Linda~~ Your place here is just the sweetest to visit. I have missed you!
    That soccer video was quite funny, some of those people got uptight easily, didn't they? :-) all in Finn.
    You always have the loveliest sayings to read here, which gives one to ponder on.

    Thank you for your visit and Christmas wishes, it is always a joy to see you.

    Merry Christmas~~ Debbie

  27. Cute gag video. Enjoyed the Christmas videos. Great quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  28. Loved the gag. The looks on their faces are so funny.

    Love the search dogs. They do such wonderful work.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ☺

  29. Thank you for sharing and for your lovely comment on my blog. Vibeke

  30. Good afternoon Linda. I was out visiting my lawyer. Nothing difficult just the fact we changing our wills. Hope that everything is well.
    Have a wonderful Friday my friend. See ya.

    Cruisin Paul

  31. Para si e sua família desejo um Natal de Luz! Abençoado e repleto de alegrias.

  32. Que tout est beau, bise et bonne soirée ma belle Linda!

  33. Oh those Irish, they are a jolly bunch, aren't they? I was married by an Irish Catholic Priest, and he was such a joyful man. I really liked your quotes on here today. Some of my favorites were "peck peck peck." Maya Angelou is my very favorite. "Why feel blue" was another good one. I also loved "It takes a strong heart" - do you know who wrote this quote?

    Wishing you a wonderful Christmas, Linda. So glad to have met you in this grand blog land of ours. ;)


  34. Yaaay, I am finally able to follow your blog now. Your link is showing up, as it wasn't before. Hope you do the same and follow me as well. :)

    love, ~Sheri

    1. Hi Sheri,

      Yes, indeed! Thank you so much, dear friend! :)

  35. Linda,
    O MY!!
    I loved this post!! So many wonderful quotes! Would you mind if I paste and copy a few? I am still searching for my One Little Word for 2016. Live was my word for 2015.
    Thanks so much for stopping by and for your very kind words!! They made my day! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!


  36. I like the color emotions one

  37. Love your new header photo. That old man in the gag is lucky someone didn't toss that soccer ball toward his head! :) Some nice music but again, Salmansohn comes through - she's got so many ways of saying things that are very helpful!

  38. The graphics really ministered to me today, Linda. Especially the ones by Karen S. Amazing how you find this stuff that lifts my heart and makes me smile!


  39. Nice updated cover photo! It's a warm 34 degrees Celsius here today! Looks like it's somewhere below zero where you are. ;-)

  40. ... the sniffer dog video was precious, L ... reminds me of my black lab Piwo (rest his soul) ... he sure as hell knew a day before my migraines would start ... he would never leave my side ... sometimes he would walk so close to e, that I would stumble over him ... he sure prevented many of "explosions" in my head that way, as I was taking the migraine med in time then ... Love, cat.

  41. A long time ago, my part Irish husband and I were looking for a house and found a special house on Kilarney Lane on St. Patrick Day...we bought it of course. The Irish Christmas song reminds me of that.
    My husband and I went to Berry Manillow concert...he was so funny. He was young, we were young...time flies, right?
