Believin' in joy! Plus GRAND Social No. 301 link party for grandparents

Believin' in joy!

Everyone on Facebook gets their fill of viral videos, no doubt. Some of the videos spread far and wide are funny, some sad, some distressing, some thought-provoking. My favorite ones are those intended to do nothing more than spread joy.

Thisโ€”which many of you may have already seenโ€”is of the joyful sort... and worth watching again and again. A shot of sheer joy to start the week:

The Saturday Post: Love on the wild side edition

Remember when I shared the photos of me catching Mickey and Abby in the act of loving up on one another?

Well, Honey the dog and Kwanzaa the lion cub take the interspecies love a frolicking step further.

Today's question:

Who are you frolicking with today?

Goats and the GRAND Social

Okay, this is silly. I won't try to pretend it's not. Yet I simply cannot stop chuckling each and every time I watch the following video, and I wanted to share it with you here. I hope it starts off your day — your week — with a chuckle. Or at least a smile.

I hereby present to you ... Goats Yelling Like Humans:

See? Silly. But so amusing, for some crazy reason. (Please tell me it's not just me.)

Not quite as silly or amusing but still a great time is the GRAND Social link party for grandparents. Thank you for joining me this week!

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog specifically about grandparenting, but you must be a grandparent who blogs.
  • Posts shared can be an old one or a recent one, your choice.
  • To link up, copy the direct link to the specific post you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue "Click here to enter" text below and follow the directions to add your post to the list.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, please, and none you have promoted on a previous GRAND Social linky.
  • No contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention at the bottom of your linked posts, such as This post has been linked to the GRAND Social linky, is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button using the following code:


<a href="/" target="_blank"><img src=" " alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>


  • The GRAND Social linky is open for new posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. All bloggers who link up would be honored to have you—bloggers and readers—click, visit, read and comment.

READERS and PARTICIPATING BLOGGERS: Please visit the posts others have linked to by clicking on the thumbnail photos. Comments are always appreciated by the bloggers whose links you visit, even if it's simply "Hey, stopping by from GRAND Social."

Thank you for participating in the GRAND Social!
