Mid-Week Choices

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

Compassion.  It's Universal.

Candid Camera Classic: Impossible Plastic Bags

Keeping White Crested Ducks as Pets - Farm Raised with P. Allen Smith

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.

I couldn't be fake if I tried.  My facial expressions won't allow it.


Sometimes I wish I had the wisdom of a 90 year old, the body of a 20 year old and the energy of a 3 year old.


In the end, all that will have mattered is how much love you gave (including yourself).


Look around today and you'll see...there are so many blessings that are NOT in disguise.










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. Love the Ross Lymen picture - this is an artist I don't know but I love the "pop" look of it. The cat by Raphael Vavasseur is wonderful, too! I'm really getting into bold, colorful prints. Thank you for sharing these and of course, the animal videos! Always!

    Sweet friend, I hope all is well with you. {{{Hugs & Love}}}

  13. Oh Linda, that was SO SWEET! THose ducks look like they're wearing SHOWER CAPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was totally entertained and when I get home from school today, I have to show my husband these videos you share. Nature has a way of slowing us down, making us laugh (or scream!) and it's fabulous to be alive. Thank you for visiting me!

  14. Hello, love the videos and quotes. The art work is lovely. I am thankful for all my blessings. Have a happy day and week ahead!

  15. Aw, Linda, you've got so many things here that I like. Our daughter in south Forida raises goats. She had a baby goat in her home for awhile. The trouble is she gets too attached to them! And those darn plastic bags...especially the ones at Walmart. I'm just like the guy in the video and I'm not on Candid Camera. Sometimes I just give up and leave whatever it is I was going to buy. Can't imagine keeping ducks as pets - those things poop everywhere! I also love that cow painting!

    And thanks again for visiting my blogs and for your comments. You are too generous and kind, but very much appreciated. Wishing you a super day today!

  16. Oh I love them all today. Candid Camera always cracks me up. And oh me! I cannot for the life of me hide my feelings very well because my facial expressions ALWAYS tell on me! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  17. I've experienced both the impossible to open plastic produce bag and the one with a hole in the bottom! And I'm sure I went through all of the things those poor victims in the video did.

  26. I think we can all relate to the grocery bag that doesn't seem to have an opening.

    Thanks for all of these!

  31. Funny stuff. I don't know about the wisdom of the 90 year old, but I could definitely use some more energy.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Plenty of good "food for thought" that you've posted today!

  34. I enjoyed all the videos today. I felt for the folks fighting with the plastic bags in the grocery store. I have a friend who fits that first poster thought. Her facial expressions definitely keep her from being fake.

  35. Coucou Linda,
    merci pour tout et belle journée.
    Sur mon article du jour, j'ai enfin le nom de ma musique si tu veux regarder. Bises de France

  37. The bags - made me laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Los vídeos me gustaron en especial los de los animales. El primero no siempre reaccionas así los animales. Y los patos con la cresta muy bonitos no los había visto antes.

    Saludos.

  39. I enjoyed the 1st video. It shows that every living creature responds positively to gentle touch. I have not experienced getting a plastic bag with opening at both ends. Lol!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wonderful goodies today, Linda! I especially liked the one about "being fake - facial expressions". I never thought about the fact that I'm being fake when covering up my feelings, but that really does hit the nail on my head. I was raised to keep my feelings hidden, and I try hard not to show how much pain I'm in. I'm going to tuck this tidbit away and think about it. Thank you for bringing it to my attention! love, de

  42. The Candid Camera video made me laugh. I'm sure we’ve all struggled with those bags, now we know why they are either heat sealed or open at both ends! Lovely selection today.

  43. I love that "blessings that are NOT in disguise." That's right. Mostly they're all there in front of us, just waiting to be noticed.

  44. I couldn't be fake if I tried. My facial expressions won't allow it. ~ Haha, this is so me, Linda!

    I love the duck video. They are cute and brightens my day. xx ^.^
