SURPRISE. Drum roll please. It is once again HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY. Yes, you read that correctly.  HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY is back on Thursday.  For those of you unfamiliar with the once again weekly HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY posts, I bet you're wondering what is going on.   Well, peeps, let me give you the skinny on this event...

This is a weekly event landing typically on Thursdays.  The best (or worst) part is that I am not going to explain why I chose "whatever" footage for each of you. If, you watch your footage and are scratching your head at the end, well that means I didn't do a very good job. However, all is not lost. You can email me at and ask me what I was thinking when I chose that particular piece of footage off of youtube and connected it to you. And then I will tell you. Then I will start sending up prayers that I haven't offended the crap out of whoever is on the receiving end of that Because, honestly, I will tell you right now... I admire all of you enormously so I really hope that doesn't happen.

Also, this is not an exclusive venture by any means. I hope that you will take the time to watch ALL of the footage because I don't pick bad footage:-) I also hope that you might check out the blog of the person I dedicated the footage to because they are pretty darn awesome. If you haven't figured this out yet... I pick the footage based on something that you've written or something that I've gleaned from your personality. Think on that for a while... If you are having trouble watching the entire video (meaning it is being cut off on one side), click on it a couple of times and it will take you straight over to youtube. If you click on the four squares at the bottom corner of the video, it will enlarge it to fill your screen. The escape key will bring it back to normal size. The back arrow will bring you back to my page.

Now, let's get this PARTY STARTED!!!!

This one is for everyone:

This one is for Carol at Under The Tiki Hut:

This one is for Steven at Steven Symes, Writer:

This one is for klahnie:

This one is for Christine at A Deliberate Life:

This one is for Yvonne at Writing My Life Away!:


  1. I didn't think the dog was going to let him go! Six months is an eternity to a dog.

  2. Oh lucky Carol. I love the music and the beat. Get out there and boogie, Carol.

  3. Oh wow, I made it in again! I think I know exactly why you chose that video for me (and I'm currently working on living by those wise words). That, and that dog reminds me of mine.

  4. Alex ~ I know. That video makes me tear up each time I watch it. Dogs are so HONEST.

    Manzanita ~ Carol started it.

    Steven ~ Go all the way! (And swagger)

  5. What? My comment vanished!

    Try again. Just as I was watching the first video, it went away. Is it already published? Am I confused? Where am I?

    Hello again, Robin,

    To include me once more amongst such a fine selection of bloggers and the corresponding videos, is high praise, indeed! Thank you :)

    A caveman type dude meets a guy from Springfield. Yabba Dabba...Doh!

  6. Oh that dog.... tears! My puppy is 10 months old and I won't even let him go over night yet.
    Always loved 'You can leave your hat on.' My friend once met her husband at the airport in only a trench coat after he returned from a long deployment...
    Rascal Flatts is so perfect for so many of lifes' challenges. I love the emotion in their stuff. I wish Christine the best!
    Some hot and bothered stuff here this week. Hmmm....

  7. Hi robin! I wanted to thank you for this song earlier. It broughttears to my eyes. I am really thinking on what you wrote and thinking it made me feel understood and appreciated.

  8. Oh my gosh, that guy got the perfect dog for him, lol. That was sweet. :)

  9. klahanie ~ One of the reasons I love this clip is that I am like Jules (I can never figure out the two movies based on such brief descriptions). I have been scratching my head over your clues and I give.

    Jasmine ~ This video is separating the Dog Lovers from everyone else. Ha! I have always loved "You Can Leave Your Hat On," and that is pretty brave of your friend considering airport security! I wish Christine the best, too! Yes, it is pretty steamy here this week;)

    Christine ~ The song was right then. I thought long and hard about what to write before putting it down. I am glad that those were the right words at the right time. It's always good to feel understood and appreciated. You can message me anytime, k?

    mail4rosey ~ Dogs never lie about how they feel. Love that video!

    1. Oh Robin your comment over at Christine's was very insightful. It is so tough. When you learn not to trust and then you find someone you think you can absolutely trust, and then something happens to make you wonder about that trust... it's a vicious cycle.
      I'm glad you take the time to really try and understand people. It serves you well.

  10. Great clips, as always, but my favorite is the first one with the dog and soldier. Reminds me of how I acted when my hubby came home from Vietnam...

  11. Sugar Lustytush is alive and well! I love it! Thank you :)
    Now I may have to explain to Husband who just asked me what I was listening to. Maybe I'll just show him!

    Happy Weekend!

  12. That was an interesting twist in Gossip Girl, perfect for Yvonne. She's a woman of integrity. That snippet for Gary/Khlanie was really fun too. These are all fantastic. I think you've outdone yourself this time, Robin.

    Have a great weekend.

  13. HA! Love it! Thanks for this!

  14. Susan ~ I totally get that.

    Carol ~ I think you should show him!!!!

    Robyn ~ It was a fun week:)

    Yvonne ~ You are welcome.

  15. I think I heard "Where have you been?" and "Don't you leave me again like that." mixed in with those puppy cries.

  16. I liked every one of the videos this week!
