Monday Fun

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

Franzl Lang - Einen Jodler Hor i Gern (you do not have to understand German to appreciate this.  I found this to be a lot of fun, a great yodeling song and Franzl Lang is a fantastic yodeler)  What a happy song, with plenty of smiles.  Enjoy!  :)

Maine Coon and Cockatoo Buddies

The Joys of Country Life - Early 1900's

The Muppets - Life's a Happy Song

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.

Don't let the noise of the world cover the soft voice of the heart.


Remember, most of your stress comes from the way you respond, not the way life is.  Adjust your attitude, and all that extra stress is gone.


You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things:  a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights. - Maya Angelou


You don't become what you want.  You become what you believe. - Oprah Winfrey


Appreciate all that you are and all that you have.


No matter how gray life gets...there's always the promise of color.


Sleep is the best meditation. - Dalai Lama


"What does it all mean?"  - Sole searching  :)


Rise above the drama.


Be sure of your heart before you speak. - Lisa Mangum


Warning!  During a crisis, obstacles to happiness often appear larger than they truly are.


Positivity is one of the most attractive scents you can wear.






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!

  10. Linda, I liked the first video about Franzl Lang. It reminded me the song I've heard in Munich, Germany and people sitting at the long tables. The cat and parrot are funny too.

  28. The only yodelling song I know is The Lonely Goatherd from the Sound of Music. The setting was in Austria, I think - pretty close to Germany.

  43. Love your messages. And the cat art too!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Very entertaining-- the yodeler was fantastic, and I loved the cat's body language as it began to get impatient with all the attention bestowed by the cockatoo. The old farm photos were excellent, and you curated a nice crop of pithy posters!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hello Linda! Maine Coons are really beautiful breed of cats. It's such a sweet video with the cockatoo :) I agree with positivity. Positive thinking brings positive results or events :)

  46. Hello Linda!:) I saw the videos with a smile on my face, the first one makes one feel happy, I really enjoyed the yodeler. It was just amazing to watch the interaction between the kitty and Cockatoo,.. how gentle they were with each other. I smiled at your reference to gulls, and the Mc Donalds birds. They catch on quickly where to find food don't they!
    Have a good week Linda, and thank you for a very entertaining post.:)

  49. Your videos were lots of fun today, Linda! I'll take country life in the early 2000s, thank you kindly! That kitty-cat was pretty patient with that cockatoo ~ reminds me of my brother trying to get a rise out of me! But the biggest laugh of all goes to the Maya Angelou quote. That image of Christmas lights brought back fond memories of my father ~ who had a system for putting them away so they'd come out untangled the following year. thanks for the memories! Sending you big hugs and lots of love!

  51. The cat art is beautiful. The muppets video is lovely too, Linda. I haven't watched the muppets in ages. It was my favourite show! ^.^
